"That truth should be silent I had almost forgot"--Enobarbus in ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, back in Rome after having been too long in Egypt.---------
Melville's PIERRE, Book 4, chapter 5: "Something ever comes of all persistent inquiry; we are not so continually curious for nothing."
Americans prayed that we had seen the last public appearance of Rowan
County, Ky., Clerk Kim Davis. But she reemerged after a secret meeting
with, of all people, the pope. Reasonable people, and those who respect
the rule of law, should react with incredulity.
using precious time during his visit to the United States to meet Ms.
Davis, the Holy Father conferred stature upon her and encouraged others
to violate the law and foment anarchy. It was yet another instance of
the pope improperly wading into U.S. politics and government.
Vatican has been tight-lipped about the meeting . I can understand why
there would be an effort to keep something so controversial and
inappropriate under wraps. Pope Francis has not burnished his image
through elevating an individual who seeks to marginalize gay men and
lesbians and to deny them the right to a union that the government
recognizes. Oren M. Spiegler, Upper Saint Clair, Pa.
