The worst thing needed in a presidency is someone who likes to stick thumbs in the eyes of people childishly, and the Left love him for it...
I agree 100%, obama is the most childish persdon to ever sit in the White House.

And he is sticking his thumb in the religious communities eyes once again with the popes visit, he has invited a gay activist, transgender person, and some nun who I think is pro abortion. Nothing like having a mature leader for our country.
Vatican Disputes White House Guest List for Papal Visit

Quote:
On the eve of Pope Francis’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.

The tension exemplifies concerns among conservative Catholics, including many bishops, that the White House will use the pope’s visit to play down its differences with church leaders on such contentious issues as same-sex marriage and the contraception mandate in the health care law.

I hope the Holy Father has a good visit.

Big deal. First the right doesn't like the pope and then they do like him when it serves their political interest. Like religion itself.

I don't think the Pope (or any powerful) religious leader should have been invited to the White House.
I think this goes against the separation of church and state which is a tenet of the USA.

Quote:
Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.
Thomas Jefferson
