The discussion was on Kim Davis' meeting with the Holy Father. Delia who often is used by CNN as a insider at the Vatican was very clear and direct that Pope Francis in his interview on the plane back from the USA to Rome stated that there is a Catholic "right" to conscientious objection even for governmental officials. He said this prior to the world knowing that he had met with Kim Davis, although the Holy Father is media savvy enough to know the world would soon know. I am sure he asked Kim not to mention the meeting until he returned to Rome. Can you imagine the media coverage of this meeting while it happened and afterwards? It would have eclipsed everything else.
It was an act of genius for the Holy Father to do it the way he did and then let it out after he was gone. And you better believe that Cardinal Wurel was in on it and arranged the meeting or at least approved it with the pope ahead of time as was the papal nuncio.
Delia also mentioned that the pope is opposed to same sex marriage and abortion and that it made symbolic sense for him to meet with Kim who opposes same sex marriage and has raised the conscientious objection issue in a brilliant way nationally.
I have to say each time I heard Delia on CNN she was excellent at combating the spin that CNN was putting on Pope Francis (and which many who comment here accept as Gospel). It makes me wonder if she will be used any more by CNN since she doesn't fit their gender ideologies. Chris Cuomo was visibly and verbally impatient with Delia's astute comments this morning about Pope Francis' orthodoxy in the matters of marriage and abortion. But he sure liked Father CNN's take which I now share with you.
Father CNN took issue with Delia and basically said that poor, naive, stupid Pope Francis didn't know anything about Kim Davis since he is not media savvy and doesn't know about her case from the news. I was exercising at the gym at the time and almost fell off my elliptical trainer when I heard this ridiculous priest say this!
Father CNN went on to say that it was Pope Francis' handlers that set the Holy Father up. How could the pope give an evangelical Christian whose denomination is anti-pope rosary beads as well as to her husband. If he knew that they were not Catholic, he wouldn't have given rosaries to them. So Fr. CNN presumed bungling Pope Francis simply and aimlessly met with this couple and no one apprised His Holiness of their situation that has made INTERNATIONAL NEWS!
What! How stupid is Father CNN and what an embarrassment he is to the priesthood!
Kim stated just yesterday that her mother is Catholic and she would give the Rosary to her and her husband's father is Catholic and he will give his to his father! I am sure that Kim and her husband told Pope Francis about their parent's Catholicism! Wouldn't you if you as a Protestant was meeting a pope? You'd point out what you have in common!
Father CNN we need priests loyal to Holy Mother Church and her teachings on natural marriage not a pundit for CNN's ideologies that oppose Holy Mother Church and the Holy Father on marriage, abortion and ecology which is connected to these two issues!
