WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Saying he had come as a friend of the United States, Pope Benedict urged Americans and their leaders on Wednesday to base their political and social decisions on moral principles and create a more just society.
The pope also called for "patient efforts of international diplomacy to resolve conflicts" and promote progress around the world in an address to President George W. Bush at the White House on the first full day of his U.S. visit.

I'm not going to drag out all the old chestnuts again, but IMO anyone from the RCC hierarchy talking about morality is a complete and utter hypocrite.
But then I've always had a bee in my bonnet about the RCC hierarchy (or a proportion of them anyway)
Funny how he's turned up again in an election year, especially when you take this into consideration.

Does the pope realize who he is actually speaking to? THE MOST MORALLY BANKRUPT HEATHENS ON EARTH...
He might as well be telling Lucifer to denounce evil...lol.
Although I agree with what he's saying, his audience has no idea what the hell that even means...
