George and the Pope agree about the sanctity of human life. Both claim to be loyal to the teachings of Jesus. Sure, they’ve had their disagreements in the past. The Pope asked George to spare the life of Karla Faye Tucker, a convicted murderer who was, like George, born again. But her rebirth didn’t have the same pedigree as George’s and the then governor had to refuse the Pope. But he did say this was not Texas justice it was God’s. Hopefully that eased the Pope’s concerns about capital punishment in general.
