Obama to Pope: ‘I have appreciated our work together over these last four years’

Posted by Joseph on 12 February, 2013

President Barack Obama has released a statement on the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and, as usual, it’s all about himself. In three spartan sentences, he manages to use the word “I” four times.

The use of the first-person singular is Obama’s own Holy Tradition, a hallmark of both his rhetoric and his governing style. His administration is a Magisterium of one.

Nonetheless, one line is particularly galling: “Michelle and I warmly remember our meeting with the Holy Father in 2009, and I have appreciated our work together over these last four years.”rson singular is Obama’s own Holy Tradition, a hallmark of both his rhetoric and his governing style. His administration is a Magisterium of one.

Nonetheless, one line is particularly galling: “Michelle and I warmly remember our meeting with the Holy Father in 2009, and I have appreciated our work together over these last four years.”

That mutual work has consisted of:

Stripping the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops of federal grants to fight sex trafficking, because the USCCB would not refer patients for abortion;
Forcing Catholic non-profits and laity to violate their faith by financing abortifacients at home and abortion around the world;
Publicly advocating the redefinition of the family, something the pope said just last month threatens “the future of humanity”;
Trying to have the government decide who is a “minister,” a ploy with far-reaching implications that the Supreme Court unanimously struck down;
Reducing the “freedom of religion” to a mere “freedom of worship”; and
Generally trying to shoehorn people of faith into a tiny, hermetically sealed box as far removed from the public square as possible.
