The Pope was at the US White House Wednesday. Did it bother you that the POTUS was addressing him as "Holy Father?" Did you hear or see Benedict XVI give the speech? Did you notice that the Lord's Prayer was sang at the Pope? Kathleen Battle facing the Pontiff began "Our Father, which art in Heaven ---". Did you notice that the US Army Choir sang the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" while facing at attention to Benedict XVI? Now I know that it is customary that when singing to a Dignitary of State you face them in honorable acknowledgment but when singing a hymn I find it very disconcerting that one would make eye contact with any man while singing about Christ. It's as if the song they sing is meant to be honoring him as God/Christ. Honestly the speech was great, IMO. However the directed singing and Bush's acknowledgment to him as "Holy Father" troubled me very much. Matt 19:17 17And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
