ROWAN COUNTY, Ky. -- ABC News' Paula Faris sat down with Kim Davis, the Clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky, and asked her about hate mail, her past and Davis' plans moving forward.

Davis said she's not a hypocrite for being married and divorced multiple times.

"I haven't always been a good person," she said. "But I've been forgiven. I've been washed clean."

She also said that she is prepared to go back to jail to avoid signing marriage licenses for same-sex couples.

"I think the hardest thing is being told that my God doesn't like me," Davis said, referring to an influx of hate mail and public outcry.

Davis said she believes that her Christian beliefs trump her day-to-day responsibilities.

“My constituents elected me. But the main authority that rules my life is the Lord,” she said.

As for why she would remain in her position despite the challenges, she said, “I’m good at my job.”
