Rome - The Roamin Catlick church is in the doghouse tonight following widespread condemnation of a PR stunt involving Sudanese apostate woman Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag.
The 30-something mother of two flew to Rome with her family for a photo op with Pope Frankie the Argie after hiding out in the Ecuadorian - uh, American! - embassy in Khartoum.
Pics posted on the Papal YouBoob! website show Frankie blessing the Ishags in a publicity stunt sponsored by communion wine distributors Holy Spirit.con.
Tonight the Sudanese family is enroute to the USA for a yellow ribbon homecoming hosted by Vice President Joe Biden.
Apparently President Obama turned down the chance for the free publicity after wife Michelle read him the riot act.
Half an hour in front of the cameras with Russia's Orthdox Patriarch Kirill comes in at a bargain half a million squid.
