President Obama refers to the Holy Father in a serious matter of concern

President Barack Obama in a conclusive statement of the union address on January 12 quoted the Holy Father’s words and used as referential keys to address the congress members.

“Let me just say this” the President started with “This isn’t a matter of political correctness. This is a matter of understanding just what it is that makes us strong. The world respects us not just for our arsenal, it respects us for our diversity and our openness and the way we respect every faith." President Obama said

His Holiness, Pope Francis, told this body from the very spot I’m standing on tonight that “to imitate the hatred and violence of tyrants and murderers is the best way to take their place." When politicians insult Muslims, whether abroad, or fellow citizens, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid is called names, that doesn’t make us safer. That’s not telling it what– telling it like it is, it’s just wrong. It diminishes us in the eyes of the world.

House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan invited nine guests to attend the president’s address, including two members of the Little Sisters of the Poor who are challenging the HHS mandate in court.
