Report: Obama to Meet with Pope
By Scott Wilson
President Obama plans to meet with Pope Benedict XVI during a visit to Rome next month, the Reuters news agency is reporting from Vatican City.
The White House would neither confirm nor deny the story this morning, but it stands to reason. Obama is traveling to Italy early next month for the G8 summit, and when in Rome....
Obama's visit to the Holy See recalls his last trip to a noted Catholic institution, and the less than uniformly warm welcome he received due to his support for abortion rights. He delivered the commencement address at University of Notre Dame last month and was met by some protest -- and some support -- from the largely Catholic student body.
