"a group that was granted a meeting because of the Pope's "usual kindness and availability".
I am aware that the Vatican is now distancing itself from the incident - it has been reported here (Ireland) as fact and up to now has not been questioned.
The story they are circulating doesn't ring quite true as one thing the Pope did dot have on his trip was "availability" see Reuter article
REUTERS
Either could be true, but given the Church's approach to issues such as Gay Marriage and pregnancy termination (yet another scandal concerning a rape victim here), they have a greaty deal of ground to cover to reach even the middle of the 20th century on these matters.
