I’ll let you decide how to fill in the blank. It’s been a week of unstinting praise for the parasitic head of a criminal organization that promotes lies and superstition, and I have been disgusted every time a journalist swoons over the fact that Pope Francis smiled or patted some little boy on the head.
The Pope is not your friend. He’s the Kool-Aid with the cloying sweet taste to mask the poison.
He’s been defending Kim Davis’s bigotry.
Francis came under scrutiny on Monday when he responded to reporters who asked if he supported individuals who refuse to abide by laws, even if it included denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Francis replied that “conscientious objection must enter into every juridical structure because it is a right.” Following his comments, the reaction was split within the media and on social media. Defenders of Francis claim his words were taken out of context, while critics used his words as an example that the pontiff isn’t as liberal as many claim him to be.
apparently, he met with her.
“I never thought I would meet the Pope,” Davis said via her legal team. “Who am I to have this rare opportunity? I am just a County Clerk who loves Jesus and desires with all my heart to serve him.”
The meeting is said to have occurred last Thursday, the same day Francis addressed Congress. Davis was in Washington for another purpose: She received a Cost of Discipleship award at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit on Friday night.
“Just knowing the pope is on track with what we’re doing, and agreeing, you know, kind of validates everything,” Davis tells ABC News Wednesday morning, speaking about her meeting with Pope Francis and the stand she has taken against same-sex marriage.
She adds, “I’ve weighed the cost, and I’m prepared to do whatever it takes.”
Davis says it was “very humbling” to meet Francis. Describing the session, she says, “I put my hand out, and he grabbed it, and I hugged him, and he hugged me.”
Isn’t it nice that 400 years after the Thirty Years War, Catholic Pope and Fundamentalist Protestant can finally reconcile in their mutual hatred of gay people?
