"Germans opposed to Pope Benedict’s teachings on sexuality and angry at cases of abuse by priests protested in Berlin on Thursday while members of parliament boycotted a speech by the pontiff at the start of his four-day visit to his homeland. The pope met Chancellor Angela Merkel, leading politicians and Jewish figures and received warm applause during a speech to parliament in the Reichstag building, a rare honour." (09/23/11)
