@GovernorCorbett I feel bad for the Pope...he cannot escape immoral politicians like Tom Corbett.

Going in much pomp and expectations to capture Pope Francis to honor Pope Benedict’s scheduled appointment to a $100 million Philly Catholic Family Fest in 2015, the delegation got 5-6 minutes in the rain with other pilgrims.
Francis is busy or does he not want to waste his valuable private time with corrupt Pennsylvania politicians?
We shall see how much time American Barry Obama gets later this week.
The local delegation had expected an extended private meeting Wednesday at which they would have urged Francis to visit the city when the Philadelphia Archdiocese hosts the Eighth World Meeting of Families, a Vatican-sponsored gathering expected to draw hundreds of thousands to the city in 2015.
But Meg Kane, communications coordinator for the much-ballyhooed trip to Rome, sent word out at about 11:30 p.m. Rome time that the delegation would not be meeting with Francis at his residence, as had been long planned.
