This morning, President Obama met with a group of reporters for mostly Catholic publications. Among many topics, he discussed his upcoming meeting with the Pope.
The not-so-major-but-kinda-interesting revelations:
- He is considering choosing a group of churches in Washington, rather than a single congregation, to reduce the impact of his presence on any one community.
- Joshua DuBois, the president’s faith adviser, sends Obama’s BlackBerry a devotional prayer each morning for the president to reflect on.
- Quote: “I think it’s clear that [members of the gay and lesbian community] feel victimized in fairly powerful ways and they’re often hurt by not just certain teachings of the Catholic Church, but the Christian faith generally.”
There’s plenty more information here.
