Some of you may have heard that the Pope made a special visit to Kim Davis during his recent trip to the US—which apparently you weren’t supposed to do, or at least the Vatican is somewhat chagrined that you did. By way of damage control, they’ve released a special statement announcing that the Pope’s visit to Davis should not be seen as indicating that he supports her. They also announced this morning that they’re kicking out a senior priest because he publicly admits being gay.

So just to clarify the Vatican’s press release, the Pope absolutely does support Davis. They just don’t want people to see it.

    I don’t have any inside knowledge on what the Pope thinks. But it would be completely consistent with Church doctrine for him to believe that if you get paid to do a job, you should comply with the rules of the job. Neither the gay priest nor Davis were complying with the rules.
