"What people say about me does not define who I am. That’s everybody’s opinion and that’s everybody’s right," Davis told ABC News.
Davis said she's been "called Hitler, I’ve been called [a] hypocrite, I’ve been called a homophobe."
"I’ve been called things and names that I didn’t even say when I was in the world. Those names don’t hurt me," Davis said. "What probably hurt me the worst is when someone tells me that my God does not love me or that my God is not happy with me, that I am a hypocrite of a Christian."
Davis' attorney, Mathew Staver, was also present for the interview.
Earlier this month, Davis was jailed for nearly one week after she refused a judge's order to issue marriage licenses in Rowan County, Kentucky, including to same-sex couples.
When Davis returned to work one week ago, she said she wanted her name and title removed from the licenses being issued by her office. Davis has since filed appeals to try to delay a judge's mandate that she issue marriage licenses to all couples.
