Kim Davis’ Meeting with Pope Set off Firestorm
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
Kim davis’ visit with the Pope in Washington, D.C. set off a firestorm. Some people didn’t want to believe that it happened. and others, once they had to realize it did occur, they wanted to downplay it as though she was just part of a large organization, a group of people maybe standing in line to visit briefly with the Pope.
Well, wrong on both counts. It did happen, and it was a private meeting.
Mat Staver: Matt, on September 24, Kim Davis, in the afternoon in Washington, D.C., met with Pope Francis in a private meeting. We released that information the following Tuesday night around 8:15PM at the time which we were given the green light by a Vatican official of the highest level. And in fact, this whole situation with regards to Kim Davis, if we play it back, and go through the sequence, it’s pretty clear that Pope Francis met with her, met with her privately and knew who she was, and gave her words of encouragement.
And if we go back, Matt, even before she got out of jail we can start there and go all the way to one of the questions that was asked of him, after the visits of Washington D.C., New York, and Philadelphia, all those visits he had a specific question asked to him.
Matt Barber: Well, yea…and at that time everybody on the plane, and all the news reports afterwards, said that his answer to that was in reference to Kim Davis. Everybody including the Pope was thinking of Kim Davis at that time because that is a global story with that exact scenario. The interviewer with ABC didn’t mention Kim Davis by name, but by that point in time, Mat, everyone knew it and the Pope had already met with Kim Davis a few days earlier…
