Obama Agrees with Pope Benedict: Gays Should not be included in the institution of marriage

Newsmax has the story, which comes from a Bush administration source. They didn't confirm the story with an Obama source.

Pope Benedict XVI has communicated with Barack Obama twice since the Democrat won the White House — but the first message almost never got through.

The Pope telephoned Obama shortly after Election Day to congratulate him on his electoral success, but the Obama staffer receiving the call didn’t believe it was actually the Pontiff on the line and wouldn’t put the call through.

Benedict was eventually able to get through, however, and he and the president-elect had a “cordial” conversation mainly about cultural issues, according to a Bush administration source with close ties to the Vatican.

When the Pope brought up the subject of abortion, Obama said simply: “We agree to disagree.”

But the source said that Obama did agree with the Pope on the controversial issue of same-sex marriage, saying the two shared a common view that marriage should be only between a man and a woman.
