Obama has allegedly proposed 3 different candidates for the Ambassador to the Vatican, but they have all been shut down because of their pro-choice stance. The Vatican will only allow Ambassadors that follow the tenets of the Catholic Church, and one of them is their advocacy for life. That includes a pro-life stance and also a stance against Embryonic Stem Cell research. I know that there has to be some Democrats that are qualified for the position, but now it looks like Obama will propose Caroline Kennedy. Caroline Kennedy is a known pro-choice person and will not be accepted by the Vatican. When will Obama get it through his head that he is not going to be able to propose someone that is pro-choice to fill the Ambassadorship to the Vatican???
Caroline Kennedy, Vatican Ambassador?
from Headline Bistro
A longtime John Kerry supporter is about to land the prized position of U.S. ambassador to Italy, and Caroline Kennedy may join him nearby as ambassador to the Vatican, an Italian news magazine has claimed.
In an April 2article in Panorama, journalist Carlo Rossellapredicted that 60-year-old David Thorne, a donor to the Obama campaign and brother-in-law of former presidential candidate John Kerry, will be given the post, per the request of Kerry himself.
And in a report that will drop like a bombshell among Vatican watchers, Rosella also asserted that Caroline Kennedy – her own hopes to rise to the U.S. Senate dashed for now – has been suggested as the Obama administration’s ambassador to the Holy See.
It’s an ironic tangle of State Department, campaign and even marriage connections that only adds fuel to speculation over who will represent the United States in two of the State Department’s most high-profile posts.---Headline Bistro
