The Golden Rule…

and (as a follower of Jesus Christ) a Golden Ruler.

(Click each picture of a better view.) I was glued to the television set. I shed some tears–and appreciate that Speaker John Boehner could openly weep as he listened to Pope Francis. There were claps of approval when the Pope talked about living by The Golden Rule. Many of the Pope’s comments seemed well received. However, I wonder if his words “went in one ear and out the other.”

God Bless America
