    Why is Obama going to apologize to the Pope?

    Oh geez....the "Barack Obama is a muslim terrorist, and the Catholic Church is full of Satan Worshippers" cult is going to be in absolute outrage, ready to kill any living thing in their path to prove that their way is the True and Only Way to Jesus Christ, and All Others Are Heathens.

    As a Roman Catholic, I say that Benedict and Obama will have quite a bit in common, because they both value Peace & Social Justice issues.

    President Obama is meeting the Pope, while all the hypocrit "Family Values" crowd are meeting "the other woman" (or foot tapping dudes, or pages). Give me a good liberal Democrat any day!
