Rumors and Expectations for Pope’s Visit to DC

The visit to DC by Pope Francis is being described, among other things, as a ‘reunion’ between he and President Obama after their first meeting at the Vatican last year.

The Pope’s public persona and agenda has seen arguably unprecedented level of affinity among Democrats who believe he has given moral authority to the progressive agenda.

Michael Wear, former Obama campaign chief for faith outreach, is calling the event a literal “come to Jesus moment” for politicians who believe the pontiff is championing their agenda.

The question on all minds is which group of politicians will find in his remarks an endorsement or a rebuke. If recent history is any predictor, it will be both.
