#Vatican Said #PopeFrancis Doesn’t ‘Support’ Kim Davis

First, the Pope kept his meeting with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis a secret. Davis, of course, refused to license same-sex marriages, stating that it conflicted with her religious viewpoint; for that refusal, she was briefly jailed for contempt of court. Now, the Vatican has told the media that his meeting with Davis didn’t act as an endorsement. Davis reportedly visited at the invitation of the Vatican ambassador, but spokesman Federico Lombardi explained, “The pope did not enter into the details of the situation of Mrs. Davis and his meeting with her should not be considered a form of support of her position in all of its particular and complex aspects.” Lombardi said the Vatican felt the need to “clarify” what had happened. CBS reports simultaneously that its Vatican source told them that the Pope had been “exploited” in a “meeting that never should have taken place.” Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich said, “Meeting with someone is not an endorsement of that person’s position.”
