Pope Benedict XVI
The good Pope played hard ball. He even made sure Pelosi didn't get a picture with him. Do you know what scandalous lies would have been circulated if the picture was taken? Then he issues a statement saying,
Pelosi wanted to use this as a photo opportunity. She made a day trip to Europe. Come on! The player was played.
"His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church's consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in co-operation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development."
Well done Pope Benedict!
