While the Pope is happy to pose with Obama and other pagan rulers, he backtracks on meeting Kim Davis.
When I first read that the Pope met with Kim Davis, it made me angry. I didn’t say anything about it because I was afraid I would sound bitter and cynical about the Pope. But I have often heard Nicodemus criticized for meeting with Jesus in secret, and it seemed to me that one quick meeting with Kim Davis that we only heard about after the fact, was about the moral equivalent of that. If the Pope had really wanted to stand for religious freedom, I thought to myself, he should have invited Kim Davis to accompany him as part of his entourage in Washington, D.C., and then at the United Nations in New York City. That would make the powers that be squirm a bit.
But no. It was all done to minimize impact. He was happy to put his full moral weight behind pro-homosexual, pro-depopulationist tyrants who want to make energy unaffordable to the world’s poor, but not behind a Christian who is standing alone for the truth about marriage.
Why do I mention this now?
Because the Vatican has decided that even the tepid respect they showed Kim Davis is a matter of public embarrassment that must be corrected. The Associated Press reports, “Vatican: Pope’s visit with Kim Davis not a form of support for her position.”
The Vatican said Friday that Pope Francis’ meeting with Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who went to jail for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses, “should not be considered a form of support of her position.”
After days of confusion, the Vatican issued a statement Friday clarifying Francis’ Sept. 24 meeting with Davis, an Apostolic Christian who has become a focal point in the gay marriage debate in the U.S.
In a statement, the Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said Francis met with “several dozen” people at the Vatican’s embassy just before leaving Washington for New York.
Lombardi said such meetings are due to the pope’s “kindness and availability” and that the pope only really had one “audience” with former students and his family members.
“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.
What was complex about her position? There is no such thing as homosexual marriage and Kim Davis, as an elected official, cannot be forced to lie for the sake of the Supreme Court’s false opinions.
The Vatican has as much as endorsed the possibility of same-sex marriage and has destroyed the freedom of conscience, at least for Christians. They are cheerleading for the Pansexual Left while reciting a few clichés for Christians that obviously embarrass them.
