I am deeply conflicted by the news coverage about the Pope's meeting with Kim Davis. I am also deeply troubled by the way that many of my friends have responded to this news. I have witnessed vitriol and even some hatred.
I have seen a great deal of anti-Catholic sentiment and statements that portray an entire church as evil. This troubles me deeply. I believe most of these reactions are coming from a place of hurt, of pain, of frustration, and of brokenness. Maybe it’s even coming from a sense of betrayal.
