Fr. Frederico Lombardi of the Holy See Press Office is spinning a new twist to the meeting between the Holy Father and Kim Davis.
The brief meeting between Mrs. Kim Davis and Pope Francis at the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington, DC has continued to provoke comments and discussion. In order to contribute to an objective understanding of what transpired I am able to clarify the following points:
Pope Francis met with several dozen persons who had been invited by the Nunciature to greet him as he prepared to leave Washington for New York City. Such brief greetings occur on all papal visits and are due to the Pope’s characteristic kindness and availability. The only real audience granted by the Pope at the Nunciature was with one of his former students and his family.
The Pope did not enter into the details of the situation of Mrs. Davis and his meeting with her should not be considered a form of support of her position in all of its particular and complex aspects.
Dance all you like Fr. Lombardi and the all the apologists for the homosexualist movement: the fact is, you admit a request was sent from the Nunciature that the Pope would meet Kim Davis. The Pope wished to see her.
Lombardi's spin, through the homosexualist Holy See Press Office, is that the the Holy Father may not support all "particular and complex aspects of her case" (this is a distracting side show: and many very traditional Catholics also have differences on how Mrs. Davis should proceed); the fact remains is the Pope supports her right to be a conscientious objector against the power of the State.
Readers should notice how interested and strident the clerical-careerist community is about knocking down Kim Davis, about undermining the meeting; how it was wrong, an error, misguided etc. I shall leave it up to the reflections of readers as to why these powerful priests are all so eager to slam Mrs. Davis.
A question arises in all of this:
Just why are they obsessed with Mrs. Davis and her opposition to "same-sex marriage"?
Joining them is the notorious Antonio Spadaro, S.J., who achieved infamy last October with his eager support of the homosexualist Party at the extraordinary Synod. Spadaro has gone ballistic this morning on Twitter: tweeting and tweeting seven times yes! seven times!! - that, according to him - the Pope no longer supports Kim Davis; let us just forget her and move onto reforming the Church (I strongly urge all readers to explore his sinister Twitter feed).
Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, English Language Assistant to the Holy See Press Office has also tweeted, exaggerating even his bosses' (Lombardi) words, to making the blanket statement coming from the New York Times, that the Pope does not endorse Kim Davis' views.
In conclusion: just what is going on in Rome? What is this Holy See Press Office? You will note the coldness, the detachment of the Holy See Press Office from the ongoing struggle of Catholics and other Christians and people of good will against the encroaching power of the secular State against their rights. You will notice Lombardi did not mention God, morality in his desperate attempt to cast Kim Davis into outer darkness.
When will Lombardi and his gang issue further press releases on the others who were invited to see the Pope? Or, is Kim Davis the only one to be pilloried because she is a public figure opposed to homosexuality? She is an icon against the sin of sodom, and must be destroyed.
On the outside these men present themselves as sheep, but inside they are ravenous wolves!
