1. Are we to take the word of Kim Davis as to what the Pope actually said to her?

Is she reporting on what the Pope actually said or on what she "heard"?

Disappointing that he met with her but as to what actually transpired in that meeting, we'll never know. I simply cannot trust this woman's word on him telling her that she was right. If I had to guess, I would think it was something much more nuanced.

3. The pope is pretty much lock step with her on the subject

So it seems pretty plausible.

4. Here's the Reuter's account

Pope wades into U.S. gay marriage debate after historic visit, Reuters, 9/29/15

http://news.yahoo.com/pope-wades-u-gay-marriage-debate-historic-visit-192049390.html

Pope Francis waited until his historic U.S. visit was over to make his most direct comments on the nation's debate over gay marriage, saying government officials should have the right to refrain from actions that violate their religious beliefs.

That statement came in response to a reporter's question on the papal plane about Kim Davis

"Conscientious objection must enter into every juridical structure because it is a right," Francis told reporters, speaking in Italian. "If someone does not allow others to be a conscientious objector, he denies a right."

Francis alluded to the Roman Catholic Church's objections to gay marriage during some of his U.S. talks, citing concerns about "juridical" changes to the definition of the family. Still, he largely avoided the issue, the subject of intense debate.


Kind of inline with his misogynist philosophy, so no huge surprise here -

5. This same pope describes gay marriage as the work of the devil

If anything he's farther out in batshit crazy land than Kim Davis.

6. Thanks for that progree.

Disappointing to say the least but at least now I don't have to take her word for it. It sickens me that this woman now has the Pope behind her misguided principles.

2. The great thing about imaginary friends is you get to imagine them however you like

The dead giveaway is when their imaginary friend hates all the same people.
