Congressman Kinzinger reacts to seeing the pope

Posted by wlpo on September 24, 2015

The next time you see Congressman Adam Kinzinger, ask him about being in the same room as the pope.

The Republican says he shares Pope Francis’ optimistic hope that “we can follow the lead of great Americans like President Abraham Lincoln and ensure every individual has the opportunity to pursue their dreams.” Kinzinger says he was glad to hear Francis’ call to be “attentive to every type of fundamentalism.”

He thinks the pope’s approach of being humble and forgiving is “sometimes a much-needed lesson for many in Washington.”
