Bush hails Pope's stand against communism; fails to hail his stand against the Iraq war and the death penalty

>"Everywhere he went, the pope preached that the call of freedom is for every member of the human family because the author of life wrote it into our common human nature," the president said. "Many in the West underestimated the pope's influence. But those behind the Iron Curtain knew better, and ultimately even the Berlin Wall could not withstand the gale force of this Polish pope."

I can't really blame Bush here. I myself would hail the Pope for his stand against the Iraq war and the death penalty, but not for a whole lot else.

Btw, I hope Dubya doesn't get in too much trouble with his party's true believers for that statement. Everyone knows Saint Reagan was responsible for knocking down the Berlin Wall.
