Boxer Hits the Pope

Posted by Ryan on April 18, 2008

Barbara Boxer is a complete b-tch!

Here Pope Benedict XVI, leader of over 1 billion Roman Catholics around the world and 65 million in the USA alone, has come to the United States for the first time in his Papacy bringing good will and reconciliation to all, when Ned Flanders himself Senator Sam Brownback wanted to pass a resolution hailing his visit for good will purposes. 

Simple right?  Not in this Democrat Congress! 

In steps the b-tch.

Apparently, the unabashedly pro-life Pontiff just couldn’t have the US Senate pass a resolution simply cheering his visit containing the phrase:

“Whereas Pope Benedict XVI has spoken out for the weak and vulnerable, witnessing to the value of each and every human life.”

without Boxer threatening to sink the resolution! 

Brownback still wanted this thing to fly through while the Pope’s still here so he agreed to take the last clause out, cutting the part about “witnessing to the value of each and every human life.”  Despicable for Boxer; weak-kneed on Brownback’s part.

Papa Bene!

Posted by Ryan on April 15, 2008

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!
