How to Diplomatically Accept an Unwanted Gift

The above photo made me laugh… the perplexed look on the Pope's face is… well, sometimes a picture says everything you need to know...


The National Catholic Reporter explained what transpired when Bolivian President Evo Morales presented a gift of a wooden hammer and sickle—the symbol of communism—with a figure of a crucified Christ to Pope Françis at the government palace in La Paz, Bolivia on Thursday...


"At least one media outlet reported the pope saying, 'That's not right,' ('No seta bien eso') but several others said the pope, who was speaking Spanish, responded, 'I didn't know that' ('Eso no lo sabia') when Morales explained the cross was based on a design by [Jesuit Fr. Luis] Espinal."


Um… thank you?
