Why is the Pope going to Turkey? Does he have a death wish?
The Pope has arrived in Turkey Tuesday for his high-stakes visit to the Muslim country.
Raymond Arroyo, an internationally recognized journalist who has covered more papal visits than any other broadcaster and who recorded the only English interview with Pope Benedict, joins me at 8AM to discuss the Papal visit. He is also the author of Mother Angelica, a book about the Catholic nun who founded the popular EWTN network. Mr. Arroyo is based in Birmingham, AL and is closely following the Pope's dangerous but important visit.
Is Pope Benedict Heading for Trouble in Turkey?
Even if the pontiff sidesteps volatile Christianity-Islam controversies, Turks were angered by his skepticism over their place in the European Union.
