The Pope, in a speech from the White House, praised the Founding Fathers and the principles America was founded on.


Pope Benedict XVI spoke positively of America's Founding Fathers and lauded the principles they embraced in creating the United States.

The pope's address referenced the Declaration of Independence and drew a parallel between the views of his predecessor, the late John Paul II, and those that former President George Washington expressed in his Farewell Address.

"From the dawn of the Republic, America's quest for freedom has been guided by the conviction that the principles governing political and social life are intimately linked to a moral order based on the dominion of God the creator," said the pope.

General speaking when religion comes into play it has a greater influence with the political right and/or conservatives. Of course it is possible to find to people and politicians who hold left wing economic views and are still influenced by there religious views when it comes to social views. But I would be careful to paint to many broad strokes because this Atheist intends to vote along conservative lines at the coming NZ election .

My views on the Pope haven't changed I respect people right to worship but th ere is still no reason for me or anyone who isnt a Catholic to give a toss about what the Pope says and does .
