Republicans in Congress love to make common cause with right-wing Catholic bishops to attack President Obama. But now the GOP is blocking a routine resolution honoring Pope Francis because they think he's "too liberal" and is "sounding like Obama."
Of the 221 representatives who have co-sponsored the resolution recognizing Pope Francis for his inspirational statements and actions, only 19 are Republicans.
So far House Speaker John Boehner is even refusing to allow a vote on the resolution -- presumably because it would be embarrassing to publicly reveal that many Republicans only invoke Christianity when it suits their right-wing agenda.
