Biden to lead U.S delegation to Rome

By Richard K. Barry

According to administration officials, Vice President Biden will lead the U.S. delegation for the installation ceremony of Pope Francis. Of note is the fact that Biden is the first Catholic to be elected to the vice presidency.

There are times when I think that religion plays little or no role in how one is perceived these days as a candidate for high office. I know that's naive of me, but at least it is not 1960.

Then again, America surely is not ready for a Muslim president, as much as many idiots think they currently have one. And is American antisematism really a thing of the past? As well, the idea that one could declare as an atheist and be a viable candidate is obviously foolishness.

OK. As long as you have a religion and it's some form of Christianity, Bob's yer uncle.
