I just came across this story on the interwebs... apparently Joe Biden met with the new pope, and REFUSED to kiss his ring, which is proper etiquette. Biden says his mom told him not to, because no one is better than him, and that his bad manners are "all about dignity". I'm not a Catholic, and therefore wouldn't kiss the pope's ring, but Biden is. This is just more disrespect for religion from the Hussein/Biden administration, IMO.
Not that I care, as I'm not Catholic and kissing a ring isn't a big deal, but why wouldn't an individual who is a member of the Catholic religion (so he's supposed to acknowledge the Pope as the head of his religion) follow proper etiquette? Kind of ironic that Biden won't do something non-controversial in the name of dignity when the guy above him is running all over the globe embarrassing the United States by bowing to every foreign leader he encounters and apologizing on our behalf.
Prez Hussein may think the US has something to apologize for, but I do not. I'd rather Hussein stop bowing and have Biden kiss a Pope's ring than the other way around. Why didn't Biden have a talking to with Hussein and suggest he "demand respect"? I think both Hussein and Biden are an embarrassment to our country.
Also, I'm sure that Romney, even though he is a Mormon, would have been respectful of tradition and kissed the Pope's ring - BUT he wouldn't have bowed to foreign leaders or went around apologizing for America.
