Saintly Omission

Quoting from my RSS feed from MSNBC.com:

“Pope Benedict XVI canonized five new saints Sunday, including a 19th century priest for work with leprosy patients on a Hawaiian island.”

To which I would add in the current climate of agenda-driven but meaningless recognitions:

“The Pope notably omitted from canonization, for the time being at least, that other remarkable Hawaiian, Nobel Laureate Barack Hussein Obama.”
