The Vatican and a Kerry Administration?

A Kerry administration would align the U.S. against the Vatican on a host of international moral issues: family-planning; abortion as an “international human right;” the best response to the AIDS pandemic in Africa; the legal definition of marriage. Holy See officials may deplore what they call (rather inaccurately) the Bush administration’s “unilateralism;” but Washington and the Vatican are on the same side of the life issues in world politics, as they are on international religious freedom. Which administration is more likely to facilitate the crucial dialogue between the world’s leading political power and the world’s leading moral authority?
