There have been reports that in a phone call with the Pope, Obama told the Pope that they would have to “agee to disagree” on the issue of abortion.
The “disagreement” began last week with the Vatican reaction to the reversal of the Mexico City policy by the Obama administration. Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Academy of Life, made very clear the Pope’s displeasure.
Assuming that the reports about the “agree to disagree” remark are correct, I assume Obama has the Pope confused with many of the “pro-life” Catholics who voted for him last year, and who obviously have abortion low on their priority list. My guess is that Pope Benedict will soon find ways to disabuse our pro-abort President of this misconception.
