Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the United States began today at Andrew’s Air Force Base in Maryland. He met President Bush, Laura and Jenna along with a throng of cheering crowds and fanfare. He also clearly denounced the pedophilia scandals that have rocked the Roman Catholic Church over the last decade or so.
Great start to his visit to America by setting the tone and addressing issues that many American Catholics and non-Catholics have. There’s more to come, I’m sure! I like this Pope– among many other positive things, he’s not asking Catholics to call God “Allah“, nor is he asking any government to adopt sharia law. Nice!
