13. Nixon's Sec. of Agriculture

once got himself in trouble for making a "joke" about what he considered to be a poor decision by the Pope and the Catholic Church regarding the use of contraception:

In 1974, a reporter asked Butz about Pope Paul VI’s opposition to using artificial contraception as a means to assuage world hunger. Butz replied, in effect, that the pope’s rejection of this approach was of little interest because Pope Paul had already stated, in a 1968 encyclical, that artificial contraception violated church law under any circumstances. Here’s how he put it: “He no play-a da game, he no make-a da rules.” *

Sometimes decisions aren't always made in the right way.......
