The White House has symbolically slapped Pope Francis in the face.
The Pope will be attending a White House reception next Wednesday. Obama has invited a gay Episcopal bishop to attend as well as transgendered activists and a rebel nun.
The hope, of course, is to set the stage for a photo op with the pontiff and these individuals who publicly oppose Catholic teachings to suggest that the Pope is “with them” on critical issues of the time.
On the other hand, there is no indication that any pro life activists have been invited. Life issues are important to U.S. Catholic bishops.
According to reporting in this morning’s Wall Street Journal, the Vatican is ticked.
The Obama administration is the most anti-Catholic White House in the past century. None of this comes as a surprise.
