Profound Disappointment

Kim Davis, the face of religious hate and disrcrimination


This morning I saw a news item on my iPhone that that Kim Davis, the four times married Kentucky clerk who disobeys the law because she believes in the "santictity of marriage and refuses to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples, had a meeting with her.



Of course I did not believe it.  I checked Snopes.  Nothing.  Oh well, it will eventually show up as a fraud.  Well, guess what?  Apparently it is true.  

Regular followers of this blog know that I posted several favorable posts about the Pope's visit to United State last week.  Well folks, all that goodwill is gone.  GONE.  

To meet with such a hateful person like Kim Davis who disobeys the law and seeks to deprive me of my Constitutional right of marriage because of HER religious beliefs.  Believe what you want to Kim Davis but when YOUR beliefs affect my life, then that is wrong.

What a profound disappointment I have in this Pope, who was supposed to be the new, more inclusive Pope.  

Apparently he met with Kim Davis and told her to "remain strong."  Indeed, and I will remain strong Kim Davis and Pope Francis and will continue to demand to be treated as an equal citizen of this country.  You and your hypocritical cohorts will no longer put your yoke of your discrimination, hate on my neck. 

Pope Francis, just one more fraud.

      I did not believe the report when I first read it. I was sure it was an Internet hoax. Now that I read it was real, like you, 100% of all my good feelings about this pope disappeared. Gone.

    Pope Francis should do what he's supposed to do also. Not just Kim Davis. Stick to his religion and shut up about policy in other countries! Pope Francis has no place commenting on how America rules itself. Pope Francis may be a very nice guy but we all need to draw the line. I agree with you!
    If you ever get a chance to get to Europe, Italy in particular, stop and look at all the most beautiful antiquities adorning the churches, museums and walls. Most of this glorious art work was created by masters who were gay. People who have brought such beauty in to the world are surely blessed by God. Plain and simple!
    Please don't be angry or upset. Forgive these people for they know not what they do.
    I only wish you peace and much happiness in your life. And much love.

      The Pope and his advisors should have known better than to admit this horrible woman and her lawyers for a private meeting. What were they thinking? Unbelievable. I have no feeling at all for this pope. None.

      Ron. I understand and I'm so sorry. But isn't the pope supposed to forgive all sinners? Maybe he was forgiving Davis of her sins in secret. We don't know what transpired between them. Maybe he was telling her to mind her own business and just do her job!!!!
      The truth of the matter is that the pope is just a man. Some people forget that. And as a man, a human, he makes mistakes. And we, as humans also, should forgive them. The pope did do some good on this planet. It's not our fault he isn't so enlightened. As the pope asked: pray for him. Maybe one day a lightbulb will go off in his head and he'll come to!
      Peace bro!

      I don't know what transpired between them but I do know now that they did meet. I also know that the meeting was kept secret until the Pope left the U.S. Why? I think we all know the answer to that question, they (the Pope, who is not a stupid man) and his advisors knew they would be a major negative reaction to his meeting with this vile woman and her attorneys. At worst the Pope gave religious zealot encouragement to continue disobeying the law. At best he was used by his advisors who (I hear it was a very conservative Archbishop) and Davis's lawyers. All I know is that this Pope was spreading a message of inclusiveness and yet his meeting with the much married Ms. Davis has spread the exact opposite message. To me it just confirms the Christian hypocrisy that I have encountered my whole life and why I am not a member of that church. I am very, very disappointed in Pope Francis and I feel like I was taken for a fool.

      Ron, Have you been reading the news reports that just came out about the pope's supposed visit with Davis? Apparently it was not a pre-planned visit and Davis has taken advantage of the opportunity and has been spreading lies. The pope met with a bunch of people and Davis was just in the group. The pope did NOT meet with her specifically nor did he condone her actions. Here are a few links from reputable news sources, such as the NY Times, Huffington Post, CBS etc to set the record correctly:

      http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/03/world/europe/pope-francis-kim-davis-meeting.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/vatican-pope-kim-davis-meeting_560e4dc1e4b0af3706e04dd4

      I also do not belong to any organized religious group (after being beaten by the nuns and abused by the priests when I attended Catholic school) BUT I do know this and nothing will ever sway me: God loves me and he loves every.single.body in the whole, wide entire world! I don't let 'man' sway me. God is true.
      Peace Ron. And good luck to you always.

      I think a very conservative arch bishop (I can't remember his name) arranged the "meeting" to give the appearance of approval of this vile woman. Whatever, I have lost whatever respect I had gained for this pope. He's not a stupid man. He knew who he was meeting. Now for the photo of the pope hugging her to come out.

  3. I thought it was a hoax. I just can't believe the pope would even meet with her. WTF?? Is it true?? Why would he waste his time on someone who is clearly in the wrong. She can believe what ever she wants , just don't put those beliefs above what is the law. ( and of course, what should be equality)!

      All the good feelings I had about this pope were dispersed the moment I realized that this story was true. Unbelievable. Why would he do it?

  4. Okay - I'm going to say what everybody else is thinking but won't dare say. How the hell did this ugly broad manage to snag four husbands?? She would have been fortunate enough to marry one!!!

    It seems almost beyond comprehension that - with all the serious problems in the world - the Pope bothered to waste his time with this self-righteous hypocrite. Unfortunately, this new Pope seems to be like all the others were - - with his views are scattering every which way the wind blows.

    1. Jon,
      I'll second that what everyone else was thinking - who in the world would marry that woman let alone four times? It truly baffles my mind but then I'm not straight I've always been baffled by the (excuse the term) Power of the Pussy.
      I also cannot believe that with all the people who wanted to meet him, he lets his advisors arrange a private meeting with this vile woman. As I said in response to another commenter, at best he was used by Davis and her attorneys and at worst, he agrees with her stand. The irony is that he was in the country because of this "families" meeting thing in Philly. And yet he encourages a woman who epitomizes the continued discrimination of LGBT families, and from a woman who has been married FOUR TIMES!
      I am very disappointed in this Pope because I thought he was truly different but alas, I should have known better. I got fooled again but a religious hypocrite.

  5. Ron,
    Um, why did you post that creature's picture at the beginning of your post. If I had a bad heart I would probably clutching my chest about now, as it is a big bunch of bile just erupted from my stomach into the back of my throat.
    Kim Davis being a fundamentalist Christian probably doesn't recognize the Roman Catholic church as legitimate anyway, but even worse than her meeting with Mr Pope. she just changed political parties from Democrat to republic-clown, which you must be a member of if you a decent (?) card carrying, Bible thumping member of the Pentecostal/Fundamentalist Christian church. There is nothing about that creature that is genuine, just jumped on the bandwagon for her fifteen minutes of fame. BTW, as much as the priests have molested youngsters, she probably met with Mr. Pope to give him a piece of her so called mind. Actually, who cares about her. Just shows the Pope has no idea what really goes on in the world. Just my humble opinion.

    1. Jack,
      My apologies for posting that vile woman's picture at the beginning of my post. I do have bile rise in my stomach when I see her self-righteous face, smugly comfortable in her martyr role which she's going to make a lot of money off of, being the religious grifter that she is.
      I think the Pope knew exactly what he was doing when he met her in private yet. I still have a hard time comprehending this.

  6. Ron, don't you think that The Holy Father, during his, erm, intercourse with this woman, chided her on her multiple marriages, reminding her sternly that she is, in God's eyes, still married to her first husband, or if he happens to be deceased (I just don't know), to her second - and whichever it is then she has no choice but to return to that particular hubby's loving embraces. SURELY he must have done that, don't you think? (No, nor me either!)

      Like most people, I hate to admit I was wrong but I was wrong about this Pope. He's not a stupid man and he knew exactly what he was doing when he let his advisors arrange a PRIVATE meeting with this vile woman and her lawyers. The telling point is that they kept this meeting private until the Pope left the U.S. I've lost whatever respect I had for this Pope. Just another religious hypocrite.

  7. Well put! Either he is two faced, or someone made a huge mistake when they scheduled this meeting. The Vatican is unlikely to ever say how it was scheduled, if it was one of his staff, they are likely to wake up Monday as the parish priest in the Falkland Islands - never to be heard from again,

    1. David,
      The Vatican will not make any more comments on this meeting, hoping the controversy will go away. But the damage has already been done. The Pope has proved himself to be just another religious hypnotic. He proved it by keeping this meeting private until he left the U.S. I am so profoundly disappointed in him.

  8. Ron - I too thought it was a hoax. But I think it just proves that the Pope is just a man and we all take the wrong road from time to time. I can think of many others that deserved his precious time. Maybe he asked for her to have tolerance in this situation - I don't think we can trust what she or her attorney's say happened behind closed doors.

    I am sorry your mind has changed about the Pope and you find him a fraud.

      I wish I could say otherwise but what really sealed my opinion of this Pope was that he permitted his advisors to keep this meeting a secret until he left the U.S. Why? The Pope is not a stupid man and he knew exactly what he was doing by permitting a private meeting to be arranged with this vile woman and her lawyers. I am very saddened by this turn of affairs but unfortunately, yet again in my lifetime, I have been left down by religious hypocrisy.
