President Bush Asks for Pope's Help on Gay Marriage Issue

The Washington Times reports:

ROME, Vatican City, Jun. 13 (UPI) -- A Roman Catholic newspaper says President George W. Bush asked a Vatican official to help push American bishops on certain cultural issues.

Bush made the request during a June 4 meeting with Cardinal Angelo Sodano, after his meeting with the pope, the New York Times reported Sunday.

"Bush said, 'Not all the American bishops are with me' on the cultural issues, especially the battle against gay marriage,'" and asked for the Vatican's help in encouraging the U.S. bishops to be more outspoken," according to National Catholic Reporter."

Maybe President Bush should kep his nose out of gay issues (as he's obviously very ignorant in that department) and concentrate on bringing about world peace - in Iraq, in Israel/Palestine, in Afganistan to name but a few places where his own contribution has been less than helpful!
