Francis's Trip to Meet Covertly with Kim Davis

This is how the trip will be remembered in the history books.
Because it was pre-planned, because it was covert, because it was at the end hinted at in the buzzwords about conscientious used of a blatantly irresponsible government employee--well it redefines one old historical image of the papacy. Who cares if the pope ordered the assassination of Queen Elizabeth, the first one? We care that he interferes with American democracy in 2015. Shameful, and unforgettable, and unforgivable. Rarely have I been so outraged at the actions of a foreign potentate. This was, among everything else, sneaky. Sneaky.
