The true Pope appears

After he had left the U.S. it was revealed Francis 1 had met with the government clerk who would not marry gay people.
The pope tried to compare Kim Davis to a conscientious objector. He truly is a face in the crowd, not above it.
His advisers apparently had not explained to him what a conscientious objector was and how he/she acted.
Or the pope simply has been misleading the world since the days he cooperated with the murderous Argentinian military.
A conscientious objector was a draft-eligible soldier who was given a job that would not require firing a gun or otherwise harming the enemy.
Davis could have done that but refused. Not only wouldn’t she give up her job, she specifically said that any licenses issued without her name would not be legal.
The Roman Catholic church hasn’t changed, and the pope recently praised the same bishops who tolerated the sexual abuse of altar boys and others.
It is no surprise the pope met with Davis secretly, and word of the meeting was only revealed after he left the country. He also prayed with her.
This is likely to be a huge boost for gay haters.
“Inside the Vatican” reported:
“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.”
“Would that include government officials as well?” “It is a human right and if a government official is a human person, he has that right. It is a human right.” 
No doubt the pope was ill-advised by Vatican staff who know little about American law. No one forced Davis to marry anyone. She could have quit. This is the exact opposite of being a conscientious objector. In such cases those who did not want to fight were not allowed to leave, but forced to do alternative work.
The irony is that conscientious objectors were detested, considered cowards,  in the Bible Belt where gays are so hated and Davis is so admired.
And in the case of Davis she sought the position she now finds anathema. Conscientious objectors were drafted. They had no choice. She created her own problem.
She knew that gay marriage was coming and it would create a conflict. She should have declared to the public that she would not be able to do her job if same-sex marriage became legal.
