>>>Even in his gift to the U.S. leader, the pope sought to underscore his beliefs. Benedict gave Obama a copy of a Vatican document on bioethics that hardened the church's opposition to using embryos for stem cell research, cloning and in-vitro fertilization. Obama supports stem cell research.
"Yes, this is what we had talked about," Obama said, telling the pope he would read it on the flight to his next stop, Ghana.

We must pray for the Holy Father! His intentions, and his health!
Those who hoped for polite mush to gush from his Holiness cannot be happy!
Pray for President Obama!
