Kim Davis: Pope Francis Totally Supports Me!

by at .

Based on video evidence, we know that Pope Francis spent some time last week with a baby dressed as The Pope.

But did he also hang out with embattled Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis?

Yes, according to Kim Davis.

Davis, of course, rose to national prominence a few weeks ago after she refused to issue marriage license to same-sex couples because she said it went against her Catholic beliefs.

She was eventually held in contempt of court for refusing to abide by the law.

But Davis would likely say her struggle has been worth it because she claims to have had a private meeting with Pope Francis when he visited America last week.

“The Holy See is aware of the reports of Kim Davis meeting with the Holy Father,” Father Benedettini said in a statement. “The Vatican does not confirm the meeting, nor does it deny the meeting. There will be no further information given.”

It is true that Davis was in D.C. around the same time Francis addressed Congress, as she received a Cost of Discipleship award at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit there.

“I was crying, Davis tells ABC of the meeting.

"I had tears coming out of my eyes. I put my hand out and he reached and he grabbed it, and I hugged him and he hugged me.

"And he said, ‘thank you for your courage.’ Just knowing that the pope is on track with what we’re doing, it kind of validates everything to have someone of that stature."

The Liberty Counsel, an organization representing Davis during her legal battles, alleges that Pope Francis met both her and her husband and presented them with two rosaries, which she plans to give to her Catholic parents.
