SARAH PALIN: ‘POPE FRANCIS MUST SPEAK AMERICAN WHEN HE VISITS THE U.S.’

imageWASILLA, Alaska (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – In an interview with CNN last week, former Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin said that Spanish-speaking people must speak American while here in the U.S. And that includes Pope Francis.

The head of the Roman Catholic Church is scheduled to visit the United States on September 22-27, during which he will meet with President and Mrs. Obama, address a joint session of Congress, deliver a speech before the United Nations General Assembly and keynote a huge religious gathering in Philadelphia.

The Argentinian pontiff has said time and again that he is not comfortable speaking in English.  Spanish is his native language.

So when Francis presides over a mass in Washington, D.C. on September 23, he is going to say it in Spanish, according to Cardinal Donald William Wuerl. “It is also in honor of the huge U.S. Hispanic population and the Catholic Church’s advocacy of immigration,” the Cardinal said.

That didn’t sit well with Palin who was baptized a Catholic but began attending non-denominational Christian churches when she was young. At the age of 12, Palin was baptized in the Wasilla Assembly of God, a Pentecostal church whose preacher bordered on fundamentalist.

“While I appreciate the fact that Spanish is the Pope’s first language, I believe that as I previously stated, he should speak American while in America,” Palin said.
