Pope Benedict XVI Visits America

Hosted by

Pope Benedict XVI addressed a crowd of thousands today on the White House lawn as he began his six-day pilgrimage to the United States.  We hear about the papal visit and the state of America's biggest religious institution, about Catholics becoming Pentecostal Protestants and the continuing scandal over pedophile priests.  Also, the US Supreme Court upholds lethal injection, and in Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda, there's bureaucratic paperwork and penny-pinching as well as ideological fervor.
