Begs the question of whether the celebrity-in-chief filled out the proper paperwork for those seeds?

Due to the Plant Reproductive Material Law, it’s illegal to take seeds into the E.U. unless they have been “tested, approved and accepted” by a new EU bureaucracy, the EU Plant Variety Agency.

But why follow the law of the land, right?

At least it wasn’t some DVDs that weren’t in the proper format like other gifts his highness has taken to other European leaders or who could forget the Ipod with his speeches on it that he gave to the queen of England.

Nobody can deny that Jesus lookedout for the poor an that’s one hing this Pope and the President have in common. For the Republicans to claim to have the moral high ground on that issue is utter nonsense. They worship money.

Well. Curious to see what the birthers will have to say about this. I mean, they KNOW he’s a muslim, so what are his TRUE motives for snuggling up to the Pope.

The disrespect shown this President, as evidenced by posts here, is unreal – I’ve never seen the like in 5 decades of observing politics. But It does remind me of what my Mother used to say:, ’99.9% of the mean things people do and say is because they’re Jealous.’ The Republicans are jealous they have NOBODY of the caliber of President Obama. That’s why we elected him twice.

Pope Francis is everything the Catholic Church has needed for many, many years. He epitomizes a pureness of spirit and an uncommon compassion for the least of us, and in doing so, he exposes the prosperity gospel preached by so many evangelicals preacher for the complete fraud that it is. What a pity it is that those who would gain the most benefit from his humility and insight and wisdom have no time for anything but the pursuit of worldly wealth far beyond their ability to spend it, meanwhile denigrating anyone whom they feel does not measure up to their standard of success.

Pope Francis, by his every act and deed, serves as a true role model for people of all faiths, and I hope for him a very long life.

“Pope Francis” … Jorge Bergoglio expressed to President Obama his concern for the exercise of the rights to religious freedom.
“Pope Francis’s” first concern is religious freedom, his first love is the freedom of rights of the (RCC) Roman church of general values religious faith.

AND….this same FREEDOM dictates and confesses that it is RIGHT (a right) for EACH INDIVIDUAL to worship ANY ‘god’.
…this also includes the freedom for women to worship their birth control “rights”.
…this also includes the freedom “to love anyone” as per President Obama.
This FREEDOM President Obama has said in Brussels that it is the “truth”.

BUT The One Sovereign King Jesus Christ said that we are to worship Only the One Creator God and Him Alone, His Will Alone to serve in obedience.

And it is Only The Sovereign Lord Jesus Christ that will rule the earth in power according to and in obedience to the Will of the One Jehowah Elohim, and NOT according to man’s first love for his religious freedom, his “freedom-rights”.

First, Mitch S – no one will ever accuse you of accomplishing anything of note, so your petty attacks on the president will be weighted accordingly. As for your asinine attempt slam the EU, you didn’t even consider that Vatican City is a microstate that is not a member of the EU.

I wonder if they touched on President Obama’s drone program that kills many innocents, indefinite detentions of people with the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, occupations of sovereign nations, relentless persecution of whistleblowers, the training of mercenaries for use internationally wherever people don’t go along with western corporate agendas, very expensive military mis-adventures, creating or backing forces that depose elected leaders, etc. There must have been some awkward moments.

In the world of politics words are only words. I look to the actions of a leader. President Obama can say all he wants but what is he doing and what are the possible consequences of his actions in the future generations? The Pope can write whatever books he wants, but what is he doing? What are the seeds they are planting and what is growing from those seeds? Sometimes what sounds like a good idea is only that, in practice it doesn’t work. Nothing is perfect except The Creator, not man. As to respecting the President, God tells us it is best to respect a leader for our own safety and well-being. Only God can give us the strength to respect people who we feel do not deserve respect. The Word of God gives us wisdom on how to judge whether a person is a person of God or a son of wickedness. And before you say that the Word of God says we aren’t to judge, you may want to go into the Greek and do a study on that word. There are different types of judging. In the end of days, God will delegate out to the angels who gets discarded and who gets crowned. He will judge whether a person really loved God in his heart or was a counterfeit. God does tell us to judge spirits and the actions of people and tells us to stay away from certain people. I am watching and praying. I would be very careful to think any world leader is out to save the world especially since people are so easily corrupted with the love of money and power. Watch and Pray that you will be found worthy in the end days.
