President Obama will meet with Pope Benedict XVI next month to “discuss a range of issues, including their shared belief in the dignity of all people,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Wednesday.
Obama will meet with the pope while he is in Italy for the annual G8 summit, which takes place in L’Aquila July 8-10.
Among the likely topics of discussion between Obama and the pope will be the president’s support for abortion rights and embryonic stem cell research, which puts him at odds with the Roman Catholic Church’s teachings.

And Michelle? Cover yourself. Nothing wrong with bare arms and showing your knees, just not in front of Pope Benedict.
