Behold, on this day of January 14 anno Domini 2014 it hath been announced that our Lord and Savior Barack H Obama will meet with that guy in the funny hat who lives in Italy. Quoth the holy oracle CNN,
Obama has cited the Pope’s inequality stance himself in an economic address in December.
“Across the developed world, inequality has increased,” Obama said. “Some of you may have seen just last week, the Pope himself spoke about this at eloquent length. ‘How can it be,’ he wrote, ‘that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points?’”
Blackmailers Don’t Shoot rejoices at the fact that Pope Francis is the first Pope to be worthy of Barack Obama. Perhaps Obama’s healing power will convince the Pope of the error of his ways on gay marriage and abortion. Unfortunately, the stubborn people will probably continue in their murmuring. Quoth Allahpundit,
My hunch is that people’s views of redistribution are similar to their views of contraception: They may admire the Vatican’s position as nobly motivated but ultimately they have to protect themselves.
We live in wicked times.
