The White House has scheduled a dinner next week in honor of Pope Benedict XVI's first visit to the United States, but one guest will be conspicuously absent from the proceedings: the pope himself.You know, I can't say I'm surprised that the WH is at a complete loss as to what could possibly be behind the Pope not wanting to share a meal. Guess I'll have to help them out.
There are no competing events listed on the pope's schedule, and the White House was unable to explain Benedict's absence from the dinner.
Maybe... Just maybe, this administration doesn't exactly honor the teachings of the deity it claims to follow, which coincidentally happens to be the Pope's deity.
Take torture, for example.
