Real diplomacy. The Pope met with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis. A Limerick.

“Thank you for your courage. Stay strong.”

A message she’ll cherish life-long.

The Pope prayed for Kim

and so Kim prayed for him.

The angels chimed in with a song.

“Conscientious objection must enter into every juridical structure because it is a right,” Francis said.

Earlier this month, a county official in Kentucky, Kim Davis, went to jail because she refused to issue a marriage license to a gay couple following a Supreme Court decision to make homosexual marriage legal.

Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, an Apostolic Christian (conservative Protestant)  says she met briefly with the pope during his historic visit to the United States and he told her to stay strong.

The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, didn’t deny the encounter took place but said Wednesday in Rome he had no comment on the topic.

Rowan County clerk Kim Davis and her husband met privately with Pope Francis last Thursday afternoon at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, D.C., for less than 15 minutes, said her lawyer, Mat Staver.

Kim Davis herself has a checkered past with children out of wedlock, been married and divorced multiple times before her conversion. After she got redeemed by the blood of Christ she made a vow to obey God’s law.

Pope Francis, a Roman Catholic is a Pastor at heart and recognizes true faith when he sees it, so he initiated the meeting.

This is true diplomacy.
