Nicolas Sarkozy and Religion
Nicolas Sarkozy was raised Roman Catholic. In his adult life, he has violated the teachings of the Church by divorcing twice and having a child out of wedlock. He has been observed making the sign of the cross.
In 2007 the Pope refused to meet with Nicolas and his then girlfriend, Carli Bruni, because they were not married. He further angered Catholic by checking his Blackberry messages while just feet away from the Pontiff.
