Romney invited to the Vatican
Given Romney’s public and legislative support of the Catholic Charites position of wanting to prevent gays from adopting children, it is little wonder the Vatican has an interest in Romney.
SUMMARY: Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a possible presidential candidate in 2008, has received a special invitation from the Vatican…to attend the elevation of Boston Archbishop Sean O’Malley to cardinal at the Vatican.
“This is extraordinary, and particularly for someone of my faith,” said Romney, a Mormon, before he spoke at a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast in New Hampshire, an early presidential state. “I don’t know that there’s ever been a Mormon guy that’s been to the Vatican for a Mass held by the pope, so it’s a personal honor.”
