Barack Obama isn’t going to like this.

Pope Francis paused during his world wind tour of the eastern hemisphere of the U.S. to meet secretly with embattled Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.

Davis’ attorney said the Pope requested the meeting with Davis who was thrown in jail by a federal judge for refusing to issue marriage licenses to the gays.

During an appearance on ABC News on Wednesday, Davis said the Pope thanked her for her ‘courage’ and told her to “stay strong.”

The meeting between the pontiff and the humble clerk was unusual because Davis is not Catholic.

The Pope gave Francis a warm hug and he blessed Rosary beads and presented the parting gifts to Davis and her husband, Joe. Davis said she planned to give the Rosaries to her parents who are Catholics.

“I was humbled to meet Pope Francis,” she said. “Of all people, why me? I never thought I would meet the Pope. 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.”

      So this lady has been divorced 3 times which is a huge no no in the Catholic church, is on her 4 the marriage, had out of wedlock chirren etc and still got to meet the Pope. Only 2520’s I tell you.

      I’m not sure if I believe this…..

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Well you aint nobody but the Papal is suppose to meet even the lowest souls.

    • Zettai

      The meeting was “secret” for a reason. I don’t think he applauded her, I think he admonished and pitied her for using her religion as a vehicle for hate and discrimination. But she couldn’t admit he ever said that to her. That’s why those quotes are just words with ZERO context.

      its rainy af & i wish i was at home n my bed.

      ” I am just a County Clerk who loves Jesus and desires with all my heart to serve him.”
      ___________________________
      Jesus is not down to the clerk’s office waiting in line, however, Blaine & Twan ARE down there, and they pay their taxes like everybody else so you best “serve” them their paper same as you “serve” the rest of the public, as required by your public service job AND the law..
      Now if the county had refused to hire you because of your religious convictions, YOU would feel wronged and would swear that you wouldn’t let your religion interfere with your job. Now you’re in the job and proudly discriminating against others’ legal rights. If you feel that strongly about it, QUIT THAT JOB.

    • SunRiseBlossom

    • Milani

      It’s amazing that this chick was able to keep her damn job after going to jail for refusing to perform her duties. Had it been me, security would have escorted my ass to the door where the cops would be waiting to handcuff me, sent my ass to jail, fired me for failing to follow orders, and refused to pay me unemployment…

      I’m not surprised at all.
      He also met with the nunnery who is suing the darn country over birth control. He also addressed this on the plane.
      Lets talk about the other human rights issues he addressed, the staunchly conservative and christian GOP boycotting him and their reasons for doing so and him putting in a system to investigate, interrogate and punish, up to excommunicating bad priest.

      I don’t even really think she saw him

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      you saying he walked in, looked at her, shook his head, and said ‘you need Jesus’ ….gathered his robes, turned on his heel, and tossed those rosary beads over his shoulder??? Lol!
      (then Kimmy, in her excitement, accidently flashed her fun bags at Francis because when she went to catch the beads, she flashed back to bourbon street and mardi gras 1974… :kona: )

      I was thinking that also but decided to leave that out lol.

      “Conscientious objection is a right that is a part of every human right.” I wouldn’t be surprised if he offered his support to her.

    • Readytochokemothernatureonout

      Lmao and I hollered loud.

    • Just Keya

      I would be. Only because from ym understanding (that could be wrong) the Pope is like the head of the Cathloic church. SO if you are, then you are supposed to uphold the teachings of the Bible, correct? Ok so the Bible says to obey the laws of the land, so if she is not gonna do that, why is he supporting her? Smh

    • Buttercup

      What were the scenarios? Being escorted off the premises is serious.

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      Sadly, you not even lying. My baby sis had an ol’ house knee-grow supv, who kept asking her if ‘errthang is ok’ …she finally snapped on her and told her she was fine and just because she didn’t show up and “buck dance in the lobby” every morning, didn’t mean something was wrong.

    • askquestions

      So the pope meets with someone who is denying someone based off segregation. Ok….and y’all still be going to church…..who was God to blacks before American slavery?

    • iWasteTime

      **dead**

      He did not mention the movement but he did say the below in front of congress

      “All political activity must serve and promote the good of the human person and be based on respect for his or her dignity,” Pope Francis said. “Here too I think of the march which Martin Luther King led from Selma to Montgomery 50 years ago as part of the campaign to fulfill his dream of full civil and political rights for African Americans. That dream continues to inspire us all. I am happy that America continues to be, for many, a land of dreams — dreams which lead to action, to participation, to commitment. Dreams which awaken what is deepest and truest in the life of a people.”

      It wasn’t that serious.. I had a problem with one of my coworkers and she would always go running back to our supervisior. Well, one day I caught her tail in the bathroom and said a few things.. “Nothing threatening” and the next thing you know, I’m being called over the the supervisor station. They told me to grab my things and escorted my to my damn car! 🙁 That was such an awful day for me, how about my damn car wouldn’t start.. Lmaooooo UGH I don’t even like to think about that day 🙁

      If you can’t do your job, step aside and let someone else do it. The law is the law, take your religious beliefs out of doing your job. Maybe you shouldn’t be in that role?

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      and “neither”

    • YES I SAID IT…

      I didn’t see anything wrong with him wanting to meet her and
      what he said to her. Even though I think she’s a complete idiot for not doing
      her duty on the job, I must say I’m glad she stuck to her morals and faith
      because so many others are jumping on the bandwagon just because the govt. says
      so but like I said she had a job to do and regardless how she felt about the situation
      or the person, she should have done her job point blank

Maybe she has sense and doesn’t put her money on her back, arm and shoes. Maybe…just maybe she owns a HOME!.

    • barbeez

      Of course he did. The Catholic church does not support homosexuality. (And don’t start that crap about priests. There are more good priests than bad ones.)

    • barbeez

      You obey the laws of the land as long as they don’t conflict God’s law.

    • barbeez

      NO! He does not support gays. He supports the Church. He can’t change their stance EVER. He simply represents the Church.

      I was born and raised in the Catholic Church,as soon as I turned 18 I ran far and fast and never looked back. A customer is also Catholic he kept telling me to come visit his church and seemed angry that I was not buying into the “new and improved Catholic Church ” marketing campaign.
