The President (Elect) and the Pope

According to a press release from the new administration, President-elect Barack Obama called His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI yesterday.

Benedict congratulated Obama on his victory and said he welcomed the opportunity to continue improving his relations with Muslims.

Bada-boom! :-)

"Uh oh... Benedict, he must be a muslim, too!"

"No, ma'am. No... He's not... Now, give me back the microphone, Sarah."

Does send a message to those bishops, who were saying one couldn't vote for him. Wasn't the Vatican the first foreign entity to congratulate him, as well?

"No, mam, he's not an Arab. He's a good person."


Does make you wonder, doesn't it? I wonder if Bishop Finn called up Obama to congratulate him.
