Obama visits the Vatican. One's a global figure with millions of devoted religious followers of blind faith, and the other is the Pope.

Probably hoping that some of Pope Francis’ 76% approval ratings would rub off on him, President Obama visited the popular pontiff at the Vatican today. Naturally, there was some controversy.
To get in front of the spin, the Vatican wastes no time releasing statements about meetings with politicians. (Just ask Nancy Pelosi.) The president tried to downplay discussion of Obamacare’s encroachment on religious liberty but that didn’t quite match up with the official statement from the Holy See.
The Pope doesn't let Obama get away with the spin on their meeting. http://t.co/y3KByCl8km

Who to believe?
Obama reports on meeting with the Pope. Pope has a different take. Someones not telling the truth? I think I'll go with the Pope.
