Just so we are clear, President Obama is acceptable enough to have a personal audience with the Pope, the successor to Peter, the Bishop of Rome, and the worldwide leader of the Catholic Church. He is not, if you remember, good enough for the Republican Religious Right, who decided he should not be allowed to visit Notre Dame and pitched another one of their epic hissy fits.
Religion is just another tool for them to attain and hold power, and you’re a fool if you think otherwise. Why we have to pretend there are serious moral issues when these people talk about anything is a mystery to me. It isn’t about morality, beliefs, God, right and wrong, or any of that. It is about power.
