Nope. The Pres isnt catholic and could care less what the pope thinks except as a political entity. The pope is head of the Catholuc church only, nothing else. He has no power over any world leader except possibly the leader of Italy despite what hed like to be true. In fact the pope has NO power except for what the catholic people and catholic church give him. Hes king of his lttle vatican kingdom and a scatter of catholic properties around the world and thats it. He has no legal or political power over anyone except in vatican city.
