The Vatican is backing away from the controversy, saying that Kim Davis was one of "several dozen" people that Pope Francis met — and he wasn't the one who invited her.
Davis said knowing that the pope agreed with what she was doing "kind of validates everything."
Kim Davis was once a longtime Democrat in eastern Kentucky — but she's now a national hero to Republicans.
Davis said she doubted the validity of the licenses that are set to be issued, which she said would state that they are being issued under U.S. District Judge David Bunning's order.
Davis' intransigence requires no Solomonic decision-making. She has no right to be Rowan County clerk. If she won't do the job, she needs to step aside.
