    over Jimmy Carter's response to Colbert when he asked if Jimmy would try out the Catholic Church.  Carter said he'd be glad to do that when he is invited to that catholic church by its female priest.    I LOVED it.  Especially since Colbert is a real pain in ass about his catholicism and sees nothing wrong with promoting cardinal Dolan (the creep).

    Americans United for Separation of Church and State protested loudly when our government decided (under Reagan) to recognize the Vatican as a governmental entity on par with all other governments (ambassadorships and the whole ball of wax)..  And AU was right.  It is totally wrong.

    I am hoping beyond hope that at least Obama pointed out that the Pope's policies on women and birth control are causing more poverty in the world, since that seems to be their shared concern.  But then again, it's Obama who is horrible about church/state separation in his own country, so my hope is more than futile.  Plus now we are going to have to endure a media blitz analysis of this meeting ad nauseum.
