Vatican Disputes White House Guest List for Papal Visit

Invitations to transgender activists, first openly gay U.S. Episcopal bishop and activist nun to White House event prompt pushback


On the eve of Pope Francis (http://topics.wsj.com/person/F/Pope-Francis/7351)’s arrival in the U.S., the Vatican has taken offense at the Obama administration’s decision to invite to the pope’s welcome ceremony transgender activists, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop and an activist nun who leads a group criticized by the Vatican for its silence on abortion and euthanasia.

According to a senior Vatican official, the Holy See worries that any photos of the pope with these guests at the White House welcoming ceremony next Wednesday could be interpreted as an endorsement of their activities.

Why? He's done everything to screw us from Day One. Inquiring minds want to know if he's going to coincide the pope's visit with the dumbass kid's visit. Since I care about neither the pope nor dumbass Arab kids, there's a WHOLE lot of air being wasted. And Obama's getting into a special class. I don't hate. But he's making it tempting. He's ruining my country.

He thumbs his nose at everything. Same thing happened when he projected the faggot flag off the white house.

Yeah the pope is a guy with a funny hat who has too much power. But I can see why Catholics are pissed. It's as if Sinead were President.

sheesh What PC BSery on Obama's part.

If i were president I'd invite U.S. victims of pedophile priest from the past 30 years... And their lawyers... And the attorney general.

I know the pope has done foot washing of the poor and the like , Great very nice.
But i wonder how many of these victims have ever met a Pope or got a word from them.

Presidents recently have been claiming it's their job to protect the citizens from xyz.
Well here's an Org whose international leaders have allowed and covered up harm to citizens for decades.
How about at least some real political confrontation on the issue.

No trolling here. What I find interesting is that the most rabid anti-Catholics I know are ex-Catholics, especially in New England.

yes, the kind of jack ass that thinks pedophiles priest ought to go to jail instead of being quietly moved to OTHER churches. yeah that's me.

what type are you? the kind that thinks we should tread lightly and ignore the practice because it's "the church"?

And what type of jackass allows the people working below him in the name of God to get away with pedophilia for decades?

If muslims imams we're doing this in U.S.mosques for decades most here would be raising H3ll over it.
And mentioning it in every other post.

And i'd be right there with you mentioning it when an event like this visit happens.

no problem.
i'd guess we agreed on the pedophile question.
I suppose we just differ on how aggressive we should be in addressing those that cover for them when opportunities present themselves.
