Did President Obama Mislead The Holy Father?

In the late afternoon of July 1o, President Obama met privately with Pope Benedict XVI for just over 30 minutes. According to official Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi, S.J., "The president explicitly expressed his commitment to reducing the numbers of abortions and to listen to the church's concern on moral issues."

On July 13 in a Senate committee hearing, Sen. Barbara Mikulski was forced to admit under persistent questioning by Sen. Orrin Hatch that the new health-care bill includes abortion coverage. Planned Parenthood's Guttmacher Institute estimates government funding of abortion increases abortion by 20 to 35 percent.

There were 1,206,200 abortions in 2006, according to National Right Life (the last annual results available). The math is easy: If the heath-care package currently being pushed by Obama is passed, the result will be 240,000 to 420,000 more abortions in the first year alone.

Why not? 0 thinks he’s a god and can do anything, why not mess with the Pope’s brain?

Yes, it’s possible...

Obama has no respect for Christianity, of Christian leaders...

While he bows low in abesiance to moslem leaders...

He lies like a dog to a Christian leader...

For the first time in my life, I’m ashamed for America...

I suspect Black Liberation Theology has a lot to do with it.

As for misleading the Pope, the Holy Father is no fool and I trust can well discern the spirit in the man.

I don’t even have to read the story to know the answer. Obama is a lying, sneaky little bitch.
