The Pope’s Visit

Personally I find all the hoopla and presidential deference given to what is, essentially, the visit of a religious leader a little out of proportion, weird, and kind of troubling. I mean, Gordon Brown is a far more essential world leader and yet you don’t see the president coming to greet him on the tarmac.

I know I’m in a minority on this, but I just find it weird.
