What an absolute horror this is. The White House has selected Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and the President of Georgetown University to represent the United States at the Pope Francis’ inaugural Mass.
The one bright spot is that New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, the pro-life governor of New Mexico, will also attend.
Here’s the Administration’s press release via The Weekly Standard:
President Barack Obama today announced the designation of a Presidential Delegation to attend the Inauguration Mass celebrating the Pontificate of His Holiness Pope Francis, which will take place on March 19, 2013.
The Honorable Joseph R. Biden Jr., Vice President of the United States, will lead the delegation.
Members of the Presidential Delegation:
The Honorable Susana Martinez, Governor of the State of New Mexico
The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Leader of the United States House of Representatives and United States Representative from California
Dr. John J. DeGioia, President, Georgetown University
Biden and Pelosi are infamously and radically pro-abortion rights. DeGioia has presided over the absolute disappearance of any sign of Catholic identity at the Jesuit school, so much so that a number of Georgetown University alumni, students and others including author William Peter Blatty (along with the aid of The Cardinal Newman Society) are filing a canon lawsuit with the Archdiocese of Washington and the Vatican, seeking remedies up to and including the possible removal or suspension of Georgetown’s right to call itself Catholic or Jesuit in its fundraising and representations to applicants.
What a shame that these folks are representing this country. But maybe now we’re to the point that these are our true representatives.
