Kim Davis: Me Meeting Pope Will Inspire Others To Break The Law
Davis said in an interview earlier this month with Catholic TV network EWTN reporter Catherine Szeltner that the meeting with Pope Francis was important to every person who “lives and loves God.”
“The stand I took affects every church, every person that lives and loves God, that holds the word of God precious and dear and intimate in their lives,” Davis explained. “I’m just the first of what’s going to be very many. You can rest assured of that. And it’s not if it happens, it’ll be when it happens. And maybe my stand will encourage others who will be in the same position.”
The Vatican sought to downplay the October meeting, saying in a statement that the pope didn’t even know who Kim Davis was. “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,” a Vatican spokesman explained.
