He's Devastated, Just Devastated

From The Hill:
House Dems repudiate Pope’s abortion remarks

A group of House Democrats yesterday publicly repudiated the Pope’s recent suggestion that politicians who support abortion rights should be excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church.

The Democratic lawmakers said that the suggested penalty “offend[s] the very nature of the American experiment and do[es] a great disservice to the centuries of good work the church has done.”

Despite his sorrow over the House Democrats' action, the Pope later expressed his gratitude to them for their remarks regarding the "centuries of good work the church has done," acknowledging it was "mighty white of them to say so."
