Pope Francis Met with Kim Davis, Lawyer says

Fox News [1] reported:

The lawyer for Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who was briefly jailed earlier this month after refusing to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples, claimed Tuesday that Davis met with Pope Francis during the pontiff’s visit to Washington D.C. last week.

There was no immediate confirmation from the Vatican that the meeting took place.

Attorney Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel said in a statement [2] that Pope Francis met Davis and her husband on September 24 at the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington. On that day, the pope spoke to a joint meeting of Congress before departing for New York later in the afternoon.
