'Washed Clean' Kim Davis Said She Denied Her Gay Friends a Marriage License

Tuesday September 22, 2015

Embattled Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis gave her first TV interview Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" and made some startling comments after making headlines for refusing to give marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Davis said she still won't change he mind about how she feels about the situation, and when asked by Paula Faris if she would deny marriage licenses to gay friends, the Rowan County clerk said "I did."

"I have friends who are gay and lesbian, and they know where I stand," she said. "We don't agree on the issue."

Davis, who was held in contempt earlier this month after refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, went on to say she is ready to go to jail (again) over her beliefs.

"I can't put my name on a license that doesn't represent what God ordained marriage to be," she said.

Davis also said she is not homophobic and believes she's never said anything hatful. The clerk went on to respond to the criticisms about her past relationships - Davis has been married four times.

"I'm forgiven," she said. "Washed clean."
