Some of the tweets:
“Pope Francis met with Kim Davis. Don't be so surprised, liberals.”
“A Gay Dad's Note To Pope: You Snubbed Us For Kim Davis??”
“I was just beginning to like @Pontifex until he met with Kim Davis. I hope it was him telling that bigot to repent.”
Inside the Vatican says “Vatican sources” have confirmed the meeting.
On the plane home to Rome on Sunday evening, Terry Moran of ABC News asked the Pope if he supported “those individuals, including government officials, who say they cannot in good conscience, their own personal conscience, abide by some laws or discharge their duties as government officials, for example in issue marriage license to same sex couples? Do you support those kinds of claims of religious liberty?”
Francis replied, “Conscientious objection is a right that is a part of every human right. It is a right. And if a person does not allow others to be a conscientious objector, he denies a right.
“Conscientious objection must enter into every juridical structure because it is a right, a human right. Otherwise we would end up in a situation where we select what is a right, saying ‘this right that has merit, this one does not.’ It (conscientious objection) is a human right.”
Moran pressed, “Would that include government officials as well?”
Pope Francis replied, “It is a human right and if a government official is a human person, he has that right. It is a human right.”
Pope Francis has been difficult to discern, for sure. He does speak of climate change and immigration and the left cheer, then he will talk on abortion, the right to life from conception to a natural end, and the right cheers. Truth is, it matters not what the Pope says (even to Catholics) on climate change and immigration-those are his own private thoughts-not the Church's. But it is the Church who teaches marriage is between one man and one woman-period.
However you feel about the Pope, his actions here absolutely have the left, the main stream media, especially extreme gay rights activists spewing hate for the Pope. His statements on the plane go to the heart of religious liberty-if it goes against your conscience you cannot be bullied, even by a government to comply. It's in the Constitution somewhere, or has that been changed too by an executive order?
As one pro-gay marriage activist put it:
The pope is the head of the Roman Catholic Church, a 2,000-year-old institution that opposes gay marriage, doesn’t ordain women, disapproves of homosexuality, opposes abortion, and, in brief, takes many, many stances that the people shouting “Hooray!” on climate change and immigration reform tend not to share.
