Why does Kim Davis get hero status? Did her actions warrant meeting the Pope?

VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis met a Kentucky county clerk last week who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, the Vatican said on Wednesday, confirming earlier reports from the United States.

“I do not deny that the meeting took place, but I have no comment to add,” Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said in a statement.

Earlier, Lombardi had said he could neither confirm nor deny the meeting.

Should Kim Davis be viewed as a Hero? Are an employee that is insubordinate?
