"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Obama 'boweled' over... again
Begging for a caption call!
"Obama gives new meaning to the phrase, 'Ass to the moon'."
"How do you do Mr. Obsequious."
Seriously - is this proper protocol? Should a sitting President of a sovereign nation bow to another country's royalty? I would think shoulders straight at attention, a professional handshake and a slight nod would be the right way of doing things. Does anyone know the protocol on this? Or was this just a private visit and goodwill photo op - unlike his meeting with the Saudi King, wherein he half genuflected as well?
