Student groups in devoutly Catholic Malta are praising U.S. Ambassador Douglas Kmiec, who announced his resignation after State Department bureaucrats criticized him for spending too much time discussing religion.
The U.S. ambassador to Malta, an important Roman Catholic supporter of President Obama's, said Sunday he would resign after a State Department report criticized him for spending too much time writing and speaking about his religious beliefs.
The ferry finally departed for Malta on Feb. 23, he said.
"When the boat was ready to disembark, it turned out Mother Nature was no longer on our side," Mr. Kmiec explained in an email to Pepperdine University in California, where he taught law before assuming the post as ambassador in September.
