When Davis Met Francis …. “That’s the Pope and the Clerk”!!

FACT CHECK

Did Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis meet with Pope Francis?

BLine

I has a sad.

I was raised Catholic but I’m not practicing that faith.

I’ve learned to be very cautious since my upbringing taught me how this Church works.

Their ideology behind the LGBT reality definitely shows that, in spite of other advances in their policies, they are still behind in time.

I must confess that I followed his visit to the USA.

I was enthralled by his presence.

His message in Congress, the UN and other venues were inspiring.

I found myself warming up to his presence.

Warning bells started during the Joint Meeting of Congress address when he mentioned the importance of family.

I should have listened to my “gut” then.

There’s no place in the Catholic Church for me.

I shouldn’t have let my hopes get the best of me.

On September 29, 2015, the web site Inside the Vatican published an item reporting that Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who famously defied court orders and went to jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, met with Pope Francis during the pontiff’s visit to the United States.

Where is your Cool Pope now, America?

His PR game is undoubtedly on fleek, but he’s still beholden to the same homophobic crap we know and love from the Catholic Church, the world’s most powerful supporter of impunity for priestly pedophiles.

During his U.S. visit, Pope Francis privately met with Kim Davis, the Rowan County, Kentucky, Clerk of Court who was jailed for five days for refusing to obey the law and do her job: issuing marriage licenses to people, including people who are gay.

Davis has become a cause célèbre among bigots who believe two people who love each other should not be allowed to marry if they have matching genitals.

“Pope Francis thanked me for my courage and told me to ‘stay strong,’” said America’s Martyr of her meeting with the Cool Pope.

The Pope met privately with Kim Davis and her husband, Joe, at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, September 24, which was the birthday of Kim’s father.

Pope Francis spoke with Kim and Joe Davis in English. During the meeting Pope Francis said, “Thank you for your courage.” Pope Francis also told Kim Davis, “Stay strong.” He held out his hands and asked Kim to pray for him. Kim held his hands and said, “I will. Please pray for me,” and the Pope said he would. The two embraced. The Pontiff presented Kim and Joe Davis each with a Rosary that he personally blessed. Kim’s mother and father are Catholic, and Kim and Joe will present the Rosaries to her parents. Kim’s mother was the elected Clerk of Court for Rowan County for 37 years until her retirement in 2014.

Kim Davis said

“I was humbled to meet Pope Francis.

Of all people, why me?” Davis continued, “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.”

Kim said, “Pope Francis was kind, genuinely caring, and very personable.

He even asked me to pray for him.

Pope Francis thanked me for my courage and told me to ‘stay strong.’”

This really is more than I can stomach.

The Pope (Catholic) takes time out of his busy schedule while in Washington, D.C. to meet Kim Davis (Pentecostal) at a pre-arranged meeting to thank her and give her his blessing and support for denying same-sex couples marriage licenses (her job and the law) and to tell her to stay strong.

This is more disturbing and disgusting than anything I have heard in a very LONG time.

The Pope gives his blessing to a 4 time married whore who had 2 children out of wedlock while married, just because she hates gay people as much as he does.

That about sums it all up.

When I was raised Pentecostal I was taught that The Pope was a false prophet and The Catholic Church was wrong and evil.

My how things have changed!!

Something to think about …. “Indeed, where were they?”!!

~~September 29, 2015~~ 

WHERE WERE THEY?

One of the events that I watched during the Pope’s visit was his address to Congress.

A historical even since no other pope had addressed a Joint Meeting of Congress.

As I saw the justices march in, I noticed not all were there.

I wondered what happened.

Seems like others wondered too.

What I didn’t know is that the three of them are Catholics.

Does make one wonder.

POPE FRANCIS LEAVES WASHINGTON

Papal Visit: Francis Departs D.C., Next Stop Is NYC

Pope Francis departed the capital Thursday afternoon for the next leg of his trip in the U.S. after electrifying crowds and Congress over three days in Washington, D.C.

Francis is traveling to New York City, where he’ll participate in the Evening Prayer at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Friday will be a busy day for the pope, who’s scheduled to deliver an address to the United Nations, visit the Sept. 11 Memorial and celebrate Mass at Madison Square Garden in the evening.

Are you “Poped out” or “pooped out”?

I was born and raised Catholic.

During my young and adolescent years, my family and I were very active in the Catholic Church.

This has significantly changed with time.

I don’t consider myself Catholic anymore.

However, I have been keeping an eye on Pope Francis’ actions and messages.

Even though there are some topics that I don’t agree with him, this visit to America has been important to me.

He’s brought to the forefront a message of hope.

He leads my example.

He’s showing all of us that we can get along and respect each other in spite of our differences.

Safe travels, Pope Francis.

Thoughts for today, #247 ….Pope Francis: “Will spend time with D.C.’s most vulnerable”!!

AN EXAMPLE TO FOLLOW

After addressing Congress, Pope Francis will eat his meal with the homeless
by Walter Einenkel

Francis will make by going directly to lunch with homeless people rather than with his congressional hosts after his speech on Capitol Hill will resonate on both sides of the aisle.

“He is a walking, talking parable,” said Carr. “This is a Pope who looks at the world from the bottom up and from the outside in. I think he brings to Congress and the White House a different perspective than they are used to hearing.”

The parable is clear. Pope Francis speaks to one of the most powerful groups of people in the world and then has dinner with the most invisible people in the world. There’s also something even more profound in it. By connecting this meal directly to his speech in front of Congress, he’s drawing a parallel to the Pharisees. A connection that no one wants made to them (regardless of your religious predilections).

Pope Francis, Sophie Cruz

~~September 24, 2015~~ 

“Pope: rescue DAPA, so the legalization would be your blessing”

Sophie Cruz got closer to the Pope than many Americans did on Wednesday, delivering a message to pope Francis in support of immigration reform.

A video of the parade shows the 5-year-old girl from South Gate, California, sneaking through the heavy barricades lining the Pope’s route through Washington, D.C. A police officer holds her back, and Sophie shyly retreats, waiting by the barricade.

But the story took a turn when the Pope gestured to Sophie to approach the vehicle.

A bodyguard lifted the girl and brought her to the Popemobile, where Francis briefly embraced her.

The guard planted Sophie down, but before she returned back to the barricades, she handed the guard a yellow t-shirt and a letter that was handed over to the Pope and subsequently, an aide.

The t-shirt read, “Pope: rescue DAPA, so the legalization would be your blessing.”

The letter the girl delivered expressed hopes of illegal immigrants like Cruz’s mother and father to remain in the country, Gloria Saucedo, the director of immigration advocacy group Hermandad Mexicana Transnacional, told Fox D.C. The group, based in Los Angeles, had organized a trip for 25 people, including 5 other children besides Sophie, to deliver the immigration message.

Pope Francis …. “Speech Given by the Pope at the White House”!!

Read the Speech Pope Francis Gave at the White House

I remembered about the Pope’s visit to the White House this morning just in time.

I turned the TV on and there he was … starting to speak his words.

I’m so happy I didn’t miss it.

It’s a speech for history.

He touched on so many current topics. He proved that he’s very much aware and in touch with the current topics that affect our society and our world.

His cadence, his presence, his aura … all proving how special this Pontiff is.

His words touched my heart.

Here is a transcript of his speech, according to prepared remarks released by the Vatican.

Mr. President,

I am deeply grateful for your welcome in the name of all Americans.

As the son of an immigrant family, I am happy to be a guest in this country, which was largely built by such families.

I look forward to these days of encounter and dialogue, in which I hope to listen to, and share, many of the hopes and dreams of the American people.

During my visit I will have the honor of addressing Congress, where I hope, as a brother of this country, to offer words of encouragement to those called to guide the nation’s political future in fidelity to its founding principles. I will also travel to Philadelphia for the Eighth World Meeting of Families, to celebrate and support the institutions of marriage and the family at this, a critical moment in the history of our civilization.

Mr. President, together with their fellow citizens, American Catholics are committed to building a society which is truly tolerant and inclusive, to safeguarding the rights of individuals and communities, and to rejecting every form of unjust discrimination.

With countless other people of good will, they are likewise concerned that efforts to build a just and wisely ordered society respect their deepest concerns and their right to religious liberty.

That freedom remains one of America’s most precious possessions. And, as my brothers, the United States Bishops, have reminded us, all are called to be vigilant, precisely as good citizens, to preserve and defend that freedom from everything that would threaten or compromise it.

Mr. President, I find it encouraging that you are proposing an initiative for reducing air pollution.

Accepting the urgency, it seems clear to me also that climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation.

When it comes to the care of our “common home”, we are living at a critical moment of history.

We still have time to make the changes needed to bring about “a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change”.

Such change demands on our part a serious and responsible recognition not only of the kind of world we may be leaving to our children, but also to the millions of people living under a system which has overlooked them. Our common home has been part of this group of the excluded which cries out to heaven and which today powerfully strikes our homes, our cities and our societies. To use a telling phrase of the Reverend Martin Luther King, we can say that we have defaulted on a promissory note and now is the time to honor it.

We know by faith that “the Creator does not abandon us; he never forsakes his loving plan or repents of having created us.

Humanity still has the ability to work together in building our common home”.

As Christians inspired by this certainty, we wish to commit ourselves to the conscious and responsible care of our common home.

The efforts which were recently made to mend broken relationships and to open new doors to cooperation within our human family represent positive steps along the path of reconciliation, justice and freedom.

I would like all men and women of good will in this great nation to support the efforts of the international community to protect the vulnerable in our world and to stimulate integral and inclusive models of development, so that our brothers and sisters everywhere may know the blessings of peace and prosperity which God wills for all his children.

Mr President, once again I thank you for your welcome, and I look forward to these days in your country.

God bless America!
