Vatican: Hold On, We Don’t Like Kim Davis That Much
The Vatican wants everyone to slow their roll on this whole Pope-Kim Davis meeting. Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi issued a statement on the meeting to “contribute to an objective understanding” of what transpired:
“Pope Francis met with several dozen persons who had been invited by the Nunciature to greet him as he prepared to leave Washington for New York City. Such brief greetings occur on all papal visits and are due to the Pope’s characteristic kindness and availability. The only real audience granted by the Pope at the Nunciature was with one of his former students and his family.
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.”
Another Vatican spokesman, Father Thomas Rossica, said that the Pope may not have understood what kind of “impact” the meeting with Davis was going to have.
I mean, personally, I just figured that the Pope and Davis agree that gays shouldn’t be able to marry each other, and the Pope seems like a friendly enough guy, so if someone recommended that he meet with her, he was probably like, “Yeah, sounds good, I’ll shake her hand or whatever.” The Vatican’s version of events isn’t exactly the secret, private bear-hug-and-pep-talk Davis made it out to be, and it’s what Davis is making it out to be that blows my mind, since, as I said two days ago, technically if she really believes in her religion she should consider the Pope a heretic and a pagan.
Welp, once again, reality is nowhere near as funny as Funny or Die makes it out to be:
Motion: “Soda calms me down when I get the gay-rage” should be our new thing. Yea? Nay?
