Pope Disappoints His Cheering Section in the Leftwing Press by Visiting Kim Davis

For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of this Pope.

Pope Francis' covert meeting last week with a Kentucky clerk who refuses to issues marriage licenses to same-sex couples has left cable news pundits, reporters and columnists very disappointed.

This comes after many of these same characters heaped enthusiastic praise on Francis for his frequent comments on climate change and immigration.

MSNBC's Chris Hayes, for example, characterized Francis' meeting with Kim Davis as "bizarre in many ways." Considering that the pope has been "very public about what he was choosing to kind of intervene in," his meeting with the clerk is mind-boggling, he argued.

Hayes' guests Wednesday evening, Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King and LGBT-activist Dan Savage, were equally disappointed that Francis would meet with a Christian who claims her conscience compels her to break the law and refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

"[I'm] very deeply disappointed about the meeting," King said, conceding later that perhaps liberals like him have been "read[ing] too much into what the Pope thinks about gay marriage and the LGBT community in general."

During Francis' secret meeting last week with Davis, which was reportedly initiated by Vatican officials, he gifted her two rosaries, asked her to pray for him and encouraged her to "stay strong," according to her legal counsel.

More Butts were Hurt here than at a New York Times-sponsored How to be a Modern Man Curiosity Meeting.
