Hmmm... No Religion in Government ?

About: pope francis prepares for most political trip yet - yahoo news

  .. no religion in the city square such as nativity scenes, no crosses in a lot of places on government property & the 10 cammandments banned in places & yet the Pope can address Congress?

Oh well it is OK he's a Marxist-socialist (one of us).

Strange isn't it that Boehner  resigned a day after the Pope's visit and then said the following about the Tea Party ...
source: Speaking on CBSs Face the Nation

 Boehner unloaded against conservatives long outraged that even with control of both houses of Congress, Republicans have not succeeded on key agenda items, such as repealing President Barack Obama's health care law and striking taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood. He refused to back down from calling one of the tea party-styled leaders and presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz, a "jackass."

"Absolutely they're unrealistic," Boehner said. "The Bible says, 'Beware of false prophets.' And there are people out there spreading noise about how much can get done."

... it's more impressive to hear his tone when he spoke of the tea party in the interview.

In any case i think it is clear that the Pope's visit has had effect ... just not the ones that some conservatives in the Republican party would have invited. 
Boener "boner" was the least popular speaker  in decades. The only thing that kept him in power besides crony spending & crony capitalism was his ability to punish those who opposed him. Apparently the bubble burst.

I'm not a Republican

 I think it is the thoughts that resonate in a network that determines its salient identity. I'm not catholic either, but sometimes Pope Francis's thoughts resonate with me.  I definitely am not a Rush Limbaugh-ite, his thoughts resonate in opposition to mine.   I'll bet he hates the Pope.

I used to hate Boener, everything he said made a plunk in my mind.  Now after hearing him speak after his resignation, i kind of like him.
Yep - resonating is a new age word for like & dislike which is similar to right & wrong.
