Davis in her finery for Pope chat

One can dream, can’t one? In another moment of stunning hypocrisy, Kentucky theocrat Kim Davis is reported to have met with the Pope and NOT told him what her faith commands: that the Catholic Church is the Bible’s Whore of Babylon. We can’t blame her too much, though, can we? It would be most impolite for her to tell the Pontiff he was going to hell (although she has no such trouble telling gay and lesbian people we’re set for the eternal roasting pit).

From the New York Times:

Pope Francis met secretly in Washington last week with Kim Davis, the county clerk in Kentucky who defied a court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, her lawyer said in a telephone interview Tuesday night. Francis gave her rosaries and told her to “stay strong,” the lawyer said.

Ms. Davis and her husband, Joe, were sneaked into the Vatican Embassy by car on Thursday afternoon, according to Ms. Davis’s lawyer, Mathew D. Staver. The couple met for about 15 minutes with the pope, who was accompanied by security, aides and photographers. Mr. Staver said he expected to receive photographs of the meeting from the Vatican soon.

Ms. Davis, the Rowan County clerk, has been at the center of a nationwide controversy over whether government employees and private businesses have a legal right to refuse to serve same-sex couples. She spent five days in jail for disobeying a federal court order to issue the licenses.
