And the media wonder's why many feel Obama is anti-Christian and a closet Muslim...
Pope Francis helped Obama immensely in opening dialogue between Cuba and the United State and Obama will have a chance to show his appreciation when he greets Pope Francis at a Sept. 23 welcome ceremony organized by the White House. And guess who’s coming?
There’s Gene Robinson — the first openly gay man to be made an Episcopal bishop — who initially divorced his wife of 14 years, before, more recently, doing the same to his same-sex partner.
There is Harry Knox, president of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. There is Sister Jeannine Gramick, the one-time leader of New Ways Ministry, a group that seeks to change Catholic teaching on homosexual relations and has been sidelined by the Church.
And there will be a many more other dissident Catholics and LGBT activist groups.
The news about the White House invitees first surfaced last week, and it has reached Rome. Yesterday an unidentified "Vatican official" signaled the Holy See's displeasure with the Obama administration's bait and switch.
“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,” noted a Sept. 17 story in The Wall Street Journal.
