Obama Trolls Pope Francis

The Pope is coming to America and he'll be the guest of honor at a White House dinner. Obama's guest list has the Vatican a tad annoyed.

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.

...

Among the expected guests is Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of Network, a self-described “Catholic social justice lobby” in Washington.

A spokesman for Network, Joe Ward, said in an email message that the organization was unaware of any tension with the Vatican over the invitation to Sister Campbell.

In 2012, the Vatican’s doctrinal office cited ties to Network as one of its reasons for ordering an overhaul of the Leadership Council of Women Religious, an umbrella group that claims about 1,500 leaders of religious orders, representing 80% of U.S. nuns. That decision drew wide protests in the U.S. The overhaul ended in April, having effected few substantive changes.

Maybe Obama can ask him Francis why he's so bitter and clinging to his religion while he's at it. That would be fun.

Here's the thing...I don't care. Is it a deliberate insult to the Pope? Sure. But the Pope has made it clear he wants to mix it up on US politics, especially about illegal immigration.

I'm not interested in standing up for people who constantly argue against things I want. Let the progressives fight it out, I'll get the popcorn.
