To the horror of the liberal blogosphere this week, it was revealed that Pope Francis had a closed-door meeting with Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, dashing the hopes of many who latched on to his seemingly progressive breaks from his church’s traditional stances on certain social issues.When Davis went on national television to relay the Pope’s alleged support for her, the anger from left was palpable.“He told me before he left, he said, ‘stay strong.’ That was a great encouragement,” Davis said to ABC News. “Just knowing that the pope is on track with what we’re doing, it kind of validates everything to have someone of that stature.”That narrative was allowed to circulate for days until this Friday morning, when Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi said in a statement that Davis was one of dozens who met with the Pope that day and his “brief greeting…should not be considered a form of support of her position.”
