Vatican Paper Editor Defends Approach

 |  NCR Today

The editor of L’Osservatore Romano, in an interview with Delia Gallagher posted on National Review Online, explains some of his recent controversial editorial judgments, seen as relatively supportive of Obama administration policies.

This, of course, contrasts some of the more anti-Obama U.S. episcopal outbursts.

More talk here as well that President Obama will meet with Pope Benedict next month.

While many U.S. bishops say our church should not give our president a platform the Holy Father apparently is not aboard.

The question might better be "What constitutes a Catholic approach to life and culture?" than "Is Obama pro- or anti-life?"
