The Kentucky county clerk who has refused to issue marriage licences to gay couples says she is not a homophobe and has never said anything hateful.

In a TV interview, Rowan County clerk Kim Davis said she's just a normal person.

It was the first interview she's given since her refusal to grant same-sex marriage licences gained her national attention.

Her stance has made her a hero to some and a hypocrite to others, who mock her for being on her fourth marriage.

Ms Davis told ABC she's not a hypocrite because she's been forgiven.

Ms Davis's defiance landed her in jail for five days after a federal judge found her in contempt of court.

In the interview, Ms Davis said she's prepared to go back to jail for her beliefs if necessary.
