The Vatican has confirmed that Pope Francis met with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, where Davis's attorney -- who made the news public after the pope's trip ended -- said Francis told her to "stay strong." We don't yet know all the details of how the meeting came to pass, but the optics of it are bad no matter what. This simple encounter completely undermines all the goodwill the pope created in downplaying "the gay issue" on his U.S. trip. The pope played us for fools, trying to have it both ways. He's an artful politician, telling different audiences what they want to hear on homosexuality.
This news about Kim Davis portrays him as a more sinister kind of politician.supporting hate, ushering the bigots in the back door... while speaking publicly about about how none of us can judge one another.
