First Obama pushes a deal with Iran that does nothing to prevent that Muslim nation from getting the bomb putting Israel in mortal danger, before that he sided with al Qaeda and other Muslim groups in Syria despite that they are murdering Christians just for being Christians, and now Obama disses Catholics by moving the US embassy to the Vatican out of the Vatican and miles away next to the Italian embassy in Rome.
In only a few day’s time, Obama has turned his back on Jews and Catholics both while giving Muslims all the help they need to become an even greater danger to the whole world. Who’s side is this guy on, anyway?
Obama has offended the Vatican and Catholics everywhere with his unilateral decision to move the embassy out of the Holy See, claiming he did so because of “security” reasons.
Security is a pretty weak reason, of course. The embassy to the Vatican is no more safe in Rome than it is in the Vatican itself.
Former U.S. Ambassador James Nicholson, who is now at the National Catholic Reporter, is one former official that thinks this is a big diss to Catholics and recently called the move a “massive downgrade of U.S.-Vatican ties.”
“It’s turning this embassy into a stepchild of the embassy to Italy. The Holy See is a pivot point for international affairs and a major listening post for the United States, and … [it’s] an insult to American Catholics and to the Vatican,” Nicholson said.
Former envoy Raymond Flynn also attacked the move and called Obama’s “security” reason a “smokescreen.”
“It’s not just those who bomb churches and kill Catholics in the Middle East,” Flynn said, “but it’s also those who restrict our religious freedoms and want to close down our embassy to the Holy See. [There’s no] diplomatic or political benefit to the United States” for the relocation, he explained.
Measure this against the danger Obama is putting Israel in and the many, many times he’s bent over backwards to give Muslims his eager assistance, and what do we have?
