Caption this pic ... Sanders' Vatican Vacation

[url=http://www.servimg.com/view/17590168/563][img][/img][/url]

I flew halfway around the world to get a photo op with the Pope, and all I got was this lousy piece of paper.

30. Translation:

Dear attendees:
Welcome and thank you for coming and speaking to us about the poor and shining a light
on a subject that rarely gets mentioned.
God be with you.
Anyways, I was going to come to the event but I logged on to Democratic Underground and noticed that
people were very sad that you were here and I didn't want to make them mad.
So I can't be there
Are all Americans this cuckoo-banana pants or is it just the Secretaries followers?
Anyhow, Tell Secretary Clinton that I love what she has done to Iraq and Libya and that the next lecture will
be about regime change and how to run fast after kicking over a hornets nest.
God be with you.
Pope Francis.

prepared for the devil and his angels.

For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me."

Then they will answer and say, "Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?"

He will answer them, "Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me." And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life. (Matt. 25:41-45)

59. The conference got a note, I got a personal meeting with Pope Francis

 



ROME U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders says he met privately with Pope Francis during his overnight trip here, his spokesman said.

The meeting took place at the papal residence early Saturday, according Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs.

A Vatican source said the meeting was not a chance encounter and had been planned.

The Sanders campaign had been vague about the senator's itinerary here following his address Friday to a Vatican conference. Francis left Rome later Saturday for Greece, where he is visiting migrants stuck on the island of Lesbos. The reticence about a Sanders meeting may be an attempt to avoid the perception that Francis is endorsing Sanders or otherwise involving himself in American politics.

Sanders was invited to address a Vatican seminar on income inequality and economic justice, and took an unusual break from the Democratic primary campaign trail to attend. He had said in a Washington Post interview last week that he admired Francis and hoped to meet him, but that nothing was set.

Sanders quotes Francis frequently in his address to the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, and told reporters afterward that the pope has had enormous influence in airing issues of wealth disparity and climate change.
