****His Holiness Pope John Paul II, a devoted servant of God, has championed the cause of the poor, the weak, the hungry, and the outcast. He has defended the unique dignity of every life, and the goodness of all life. Through his faith and moral conviction, he has given courage to others to be not afraid in overcoming injustice and oppression. His principled stand for peace and freedom has inspired millions and helped to topple communism and tyranny. The President awarded the Medal of Freedom to the Holy Father on June 4, 2004, at the Vatican.*****

I don't need to start a "pope award thread". Looks like the Holy Father already has a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Nyah, Nyah, Nyah. :~P

(Side note: why are we giving foriegn heads of state--i.e., the Pope--Presidential Medals of Freedom? Bush is not JPII's president.)

(another side note: if an American citizen is ever elected Pope--not that we'll have to worry about THAT any time in the foreseeable future :~P--would he have to give up his US citizenship in order to become the head of state of Vatican City?)
