MOREHEAD, KENTUCKY — During her private meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican Embassy in Washington last week, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has left her Pentecostal church in Kentucky to become a Catholic.
Davis, who has not the faintest notion of her responsibilities as an elected official to follow the law of the land, experienced a religious conversion in 2011, following her mother-in-law’s dying wish that she attend church. Since then, Davis has been attending worship three times a week at Solid Rock Apostolic Church near Morehead, the county seat of Rowan County. Solid Rock is part of the Oneness Pentecostal Movement, which is non-Trinitarian.
Davis, who created a news media frenzy when she refused to comply with federal court orders to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, was interviewed on ABC News last Wednesday.
“I put my hand out and he [the Pope] reached and he grabbed it, and I hugged him and he held me,” Davis said.
Her conversion was witnessed by a solitary reporter, a disenfranchised Unitarian Universalist minister.
Francis made the sign of the cross on Davis’ forehead. Davis’ church adheres to the Oneness Pentecostal Movement, which is also known as the “Jesus Only” movement, which is why she initially bridled at Francis’ Trinitarian blessing. So the solitary reporter counseled her that the Nicaean Creed of 325 of the Common Era is theologically incorrect. But Davis was so overwhelmed by her private, secret meeting with the Pope, that she acknowledged her conversion to Catholicism on the spot.
Our associate solitary reporter, Lewis Thompson, with his extensive network of political contacts in Kentucky, has learned that Davis had planned to run for governor of Kentucky on the Theocratic Party ticket in 2019. But after her conversion by the Pope, Davis, a Democrat, plans to convert to the Republican Party and run as a fervent Catholic for governor in 2019, limiting her campaign issues strictly to her strident opposition to same-sex marriage.
