Is it true that ...

... the Sovereign Pontiff gave the Aborma a gift of the text of the Vatican document on bioethics?

Let nobody ever again say that Germans don't have a sense of humour.

That's a bit like giving your wife a dieting book for her birthday. Goes over like a lead balloon.

It was a copy of Dignitas Personae, apparently Obama promised to read it on the plane!http://insidethevatican.com/newsflash/2009/newsflash-jul-10-09b.htm

I don't think he quite promised. He merely joked about doing so to the Holy Father.

But who knows? Maybe he did read at least some of it.

Sorry, of course that's 'Dignitatis Personae'.
