Vatican sources told Il Giornale that their support for abortion disqualified Ms Kennedy and other Roman Catholics President Barack Obama had been seeking to appoint.
Does anyone else think Obama or his people are just pulling names out of hats with zero background checks? He keeps appointing people to positions that either lack experience or have intrests and (tax) troubles stand in direct contrast to the job they are supposed to perform!
plylerjones I'm sorry, but since when does the Vatican dictate US policy?
I equate this to (for example) Obama appointing an orthodox Jew to be the US Ambassador to Iran (if there was still such a thing). Either Obama's "people" are not doing their homework or Obama is trying to make an example of the Pope/Catholics beliefs, jmo. Caroline Kennedy was not the first attempt at appointment. There have been others and all others have been denied by the Vatican for beliefs that are against the Catholic Church.

I think that what he is trying to do is appoint people who have different beliefs in order to challenge him to help make the best decisions possible. I know that when I am at work and someone has a different view than i do on a project it sometimes works out where the two of us make something amazing because we have completely different thought processes.
