The legal team for Kim Davis says that the woman who spent time behind bars for her beliefs met with the pontiff during his historic trip to the United States.
Davis spent nearly a week in jail earlier this month after she refused a judge’s order to issue marriage licenses in Rowan County.
Davis and her husband, Joe, were reportedly snuck into the Vatican Embassy in Washington, D.C., by car last Thursday. The couple met with the pope for about 15 minutes. Francis reportedly gave Davis two rosaries and told her to “stay strong.” The two also hugged.
( Billy’s thoughts – I have posted before I agree with Davis same sex marriage is wrong but she could have made her point by quitting her job. Like it or not same sex marriage is the law of the land. What she and those of us who love the Lord and his word need to do is show others Christ along with their need for him. The key is sharing the good news not demanding some kind of rights. )
