Obama on Pope: 'I Have Appreciated Our Work Together Over These Last Four Years'
The White House just issued a statement from President Obama on the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI:
"On behalf of Americans everywhere, Michelle and I wish to extend our appreciation and prayers to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. 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. The Church plays a critical role in the United States and the world, and I wish the best to those who will soon gather to choose His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI’s successor."
While clashing on many social-policy fronts, Obama's White House and the Vatican did work together in at least once instance: criticizing Benetton for kissing ads.
