Maybe everyone can all take a break for two seconds from talking about how SUPERCOOL AWESOME LIBERAL Pope Francis is to talk about this shit:
Pope Francis made an unscheduled stop to visit the Little Sisters of the Poor Wednesday, a move that Vatican officials said was intended to send a message of support in the nuns' battle against Obamacare.Just a cool unannounced stop to signal his support for denying access to contraception during a trip centered around the canonization of "an extreme and unapologetic abuser of the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Coast."
The religious order of Catholic sisters is suing the Obama administration over a provision of the Affordable Care Act that the administration has interpreted as requiring the sisters to purchase health insurance with birth control coverage.
...Francis met with the sisters at their Washington convent next door to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, where he celebrated a canonization Mass for St. Junipero Serra. The private meeting was not on the pope's public schedule and was only disclosed afterward.
"This is a sign, obviously, of support for them," said the Vatican Press Secretary, Rev. Federico Lombardi.
