EWTN Anchor Complains About Political ‘Edge’ of Pope’s White House Address

Pope Francis, Barack Obama

Raymond Arroyo, news anchor of the largest Catholic cable channel in the world, says that he was struck by how political Pope Francis’ talk at the White House this morning was. He said the Pope’s talk had a political edge.

He said the Pope’s talk was full of policy proscriptions on pollution, global warming and other aspects of the environment but largely bereft of any religious angle. Arroyo said many in the mainstream media believe the Pope will become little more than the Democratic whip in the House of Representatives. Arroyo said they will be surprised.

Sitting with Arroyo for wall-to-wall coverage of the Pope’s visit is Dr. Robert Royal of the Faith and Reason Institute, and Father Gerry Murray of the Archdiocese of New York.
