Americans Love Pope Benedict XVI

Germans may love one of our own, David Hasselhoff (sp?), and we Americans love one of their own, Pope Benedict XVI. Check out this Washington Post-ABC News Poll. It found that more than 80 percent of American Catholics approve of the new pope and 73 percent are enthusiastic about him. Now, as the then Cardinal Ratzinger said himself, "Truth is not determined by majority vote," what American Catholics think about abortion, women priests, birth control, etc. doesn't really matter - the truth does. But what does matter is that even though they may disagree with him about those things, American Catholics are excited about our new pontiff and that's a good thing.
