Archbishop Vigaṇ is being replaced. [View all]

Yeah, setting up your boss isn't really a good career move...

The Vatican ambassador to the U.S. who arranged the 2015 meeting between Pope Francis and controversial anti-gay Kentucky clerk Kim Davis is set to be replaced, according to reports.

Italian Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigaṇ will be replaced by French-born Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the Catholic magazine America reported, citing Italian blogger Sandro Magister.

His presumed successor, 70-year-old Pierre speaks English and has held previous posts in Uganda, Haiti and — since 2007 — Mexico.

America reported that the Vatican does not officially announce new postings until the Obama administration gives a stamp of approval — but sources told the magazine to expect an announcement before Easter.
