Sensationalist headlines… even NPR does it.
Pope Francis has appointed Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the apostolic nuncio in Mexico, to the same position in the U.S., replacing the Vatican’s ambassador who set up the pope’s meeting with controversial Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis last fall.
The move had been anticipated since the exiting nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, reached the mandatory retirement age of 75 earlier this year.
His “replacement” had nothing to do with Kim Davis. He had to retire.
