As was pointed out in a couple of threads here on SA, e.g., "Conservative Catholics question Pope Francis‚Äôs approach," it will be some fun watching Conservative Catholic Greedy Old Partiers squirm to fulfill the wishes of the new Pope. While I enjoyed at the time, Will Bill Clinton out GOPing the GOP when he was in office, I did not find it amusing at all the results he had in doing so, in later years.
Right on, John. He would disagree, of course and it's amazing how a man can believe, and a chuch can believe that he is the holy, infallible father of all Christendom; unable to err from his seat. The main reason there are so many heresies is because of these Popes spouting whatever they please over the centuries; dogma and doctrine that can never be reverted or recinded so the Roman church is always scrambling to justify these doctrines. Most of the doctrines are not only unbiblical, but their authority lies solely upon tradition, apocrypha, and single, out of context verses of Scripture that they build entire doctrines out of.
There is nothing wrong with Obama or anybody else visiting the Pope. The Pope is just a normal jerk like everybody else is and not on a pedestal. The Pope is not the Vicar of Christ. The Pope is just the earthly leader of the Catholic Church.
