Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement on the Pope’s address to Congress:  

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “His Holiness, Pope Francis, came to the United States to share inspiring words of faith, charity, and goodwill. While his address to Members of Congress was a milestone in our nation’s history, it would be a mistake to politicize his message of morality. As elected representatives, we are entrusted by the people of this country to act on their behalf on issues of policy and law. While I respect the Pope’s moral vision, how we respond to the world’s challenges is a matter of prudential judgment allocated to elected policymakers.”
