A Stark Contrast: Sen. Barack Obama's pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, with Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict XVI's visit to Ground Zero becomes all the more meaningful when I think of Rev. Jeremiah Wright's blaming Americans for 9/11 attacks and "God Bless America" not "God damn America."

Sen. Barack Obama's pastor says blacks should not sing "God Bless America" but "God damn America."
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright has made a number of controversial statements. The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's south side, has a long history of what even Obama's campaign aides concede is "inflammatory rhetoric," including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own "terrorism."
Now look at this article:
Pope Benedict XVI Loves Americans -- and Millions of Americans Love Him
by Newt Gingrich
I witnessed firsthand this week that Pope Benedict loves America and Americans.
The first great moment of connection came at the end of the White House welcoming ceremony when Pope Benedict XVI said simply, "God Bless America."
