Pope is not the president

February 4, 2013 

A couple of weeks ago, I read a letter with a passionate plea for Obama to "stop trampling on the Constitution by forcing Catholics to have abortions."

The writer asked if Obama was smarter than the pope. I don't know.

I do know this: Roe v. Wade is the law of the land, the pope is not the president of the United States and President Obama was never a member of Hitler Youth.
