The Pope Smokes Out Congress On Climate Change

The funniest line of the last few days came from Arizona Republican Congressman Paul Gosar. Resentful that Pope Francis might blaspheme the sacred chamber of the World's Greatest Deliberative Body with some inconvenient truth about global warming, Gosar announced he would boycott the Holy Father's visit to Capitol Hill. You can argue that a joint session of Congress is an inappropriate speaking venue for a world religious leader, violation of church and state and so forth. And many of us have big, big issues with the Roman Catholic Church. But frankly this is no time for business -- or politics -- as usual.
