".....Obama (the community organizer from Chicago) could teach the pope a lot about politics...."
What she fails to realize is that Pope Benedict's role is not the same as the role of a politician. He is obliged to speak the truth.....he is not obliged to agree with the wayward Catholics who have no idea of what it really means to be Catholic.
"Pope Benedict, having lived in the safety and security of the Vatican for much of his professional life, is part of this culture that silences dissent."
It is the responsibility of the Vicar of Christ to guide the faithful in understanding Christ's teaching.
Ms. Kennedy Townsend completely misses the point.
