A Tale of Two Sittings (Rome/Obama)

For what I saw as a Humorous (in a cynical way) was Obama’s (40%ish popularity) take on his meeting with the Pope (85% popularity) yesterday. The Vatican posted its take on the meeting also. One wonders if they actually in the same room??? Supposedly they were because, unlike Mooch, the Press was invited to take pictures. Frankly, I’ll take the Vatican’s version.

Only God knows for sure: Obama, pope differ on accounts of ‘social schisms’ talk

(midway through the article)
The Vatican, however, issued a statement after the meeting saying the president’s discussions with Francis and two other top Vatican officials focused “on questions of particular relevance for the [Catholic] Church in [the United States], such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection” — issues that have fueled divisions between Mr. Obama and the church.

Although Mr. Obama wanted to highlight his bond with Francis over questions of economic inequality and helping the poor, Obamacare’s mandate for employers to pay for birth control gained more attention. (Sounds like CROSS-Talk, so to speak)

The president clearly wanted to benefit from the global popularity of the pope. Their meeting was a highlight of Mr. Obama’s foreign trip that ends Friday in Saudi Arabia, but it was at an awkward time for the president.

  1. And then after meeting BO:

    Pope Francis Breaks Tradition and Stuns Thousands With Bold Move

    Pope Francis stunned parishioners, faith leaders and his own master of ceremonies Friday when he broke protocol to do something wholly unexpected: he bowed down in front of the crowd at St. Peter’s Basilica and confessed his sins to an ordinary priest, Reuters reported.

    Typically, the pope goes to confession in private, so his decision was a departure from the past. (Wonder if BO caused this?)

    Francis made the noteworthy move after uttering a sermon in which he covered the importance of confession in the Catholic faith.

  2. They (the Pope and the putz) can talk about abortion or gay marriage all they want. The world, especially America is loosing. Right now, 8:30 Friday night primetime there is a show on FOX: Rake and the episode is Fifty Shades of Gay. Yep, primetime, when kids are watching. This is the type of propaganda they spew at children in America today. And this is what they’re blatant enough to parade to us in full view. Can you imagine what they’re doing in the cloister of schools?
