During his visit to America, Pope Francis took time to meet with Kentucky clerk, Kim Davis, who was jailed for practicing her faith by refusing to have her name on homosexual so-called “marriage certificates.”

Pope Francis told Kim in English, “Thank you for your courage.” He urged her to “stay strong” before asking Kim to pray for him.

Davis said, “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…”

While we may not agree on everything the Pope has said, we can agree on religious liberty. As Pope Francis affirmed, religious freedom is a human right that comes from God. And the only way to keep religious freedom is to stand strong and use the freedom we have left.
