United Nations taking Rome very serious as Kofi Annan visits Pope seeking support

It was UN Secretary General Kofi Annan who met with the Holy Father and Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano yesterday.

No wonder our schools are in so much trouble these days. For more, click on Atheistic Curriculum.
