Vatican: Pope’s visit with Davis not “form of support”


VATICAN CITY (WTVQ) – The Vatican is clarifying a meeting between Pope Francis and Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis.

On Friday, the Vatican released a statement saying: “The Pope did not enter into the details of the situation of Mrs. Davis and his meeting with her should not be considered a form of support of her position in all of its particular and complex aspects.”

Davis made national headlines because of her refusal to sign marriage licenses for gay couples, saying it was against her Christian faith.

She spent six days in jail for defying a federal judge’s order to issue the licenses.
