Two former Vatican spokespersons say Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is not telling the full truth on Pope Francis’s September 2015 meeting with Kim Davis.
Though questions have been raised about the credibility of an accusation by a former papal ambassador in the U.S. that Pope Francis brushed off warnings about ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the drama probably isn’t over yet.
When a pope travels, responsibility for paying attention to whom he meets, and when it might be an issue, has to belong to his ambassador in that country.
Pope Francis’s five-day trip to the United States one year ago was full of big public events, but two private moments loomed large in fueling discussion and debate: His drop-in on the Little Sisters of the Poor on Sept. 23, and his encounter with Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis a day later.
