A gift that keeps on giving
Pope Benedict XVI presented President Obama with an unexpected but perfectly appropriate gift during their meeting today: A copy of Dignitas Personae (The Dignity of a Person). Considering the huge, gaping chasm that exists between the Church's respect for life from conception to natural death and Obama's insistence on broadening and strengthening abortion rights, embyronic stem cell researh and more, I can't think of a better gift than the bioethics document. It certainly beats the lame (and unusable) DVD set Obama gave British Prime Minister Gordon Brown at their first meeting. Click HERE to read Cindy Wooden's post on the gift at CNS blog.
