This April, Pope Benedict XVI is visiting the U.S. The impetus is a visit to the U.N. General Assembly but he will also visit with the U.S. Bishops in Washington, D.C., as well as help the Archdiocese of New York celebrate their bicentennial.
Thanks to the irreverent, and sadly frequently immoral, Onion (a news farce from the University of Wisconsin, Madison), we see why the Pope isn't visiting Boston, a traditionally Catholic town and perhaps the cultural heart of Catholic America over the past 100 years.
