Obama Continues Assault on Catholic Church, Moves to Close Vatican Embassy

Barack Hussein Obama's ongoing assault on the Catholic Church is doomed to failure and will ultimately discredit and undo the inept, Indonesian immigrant who illegitimately occupies the White House.  From Diocletian to Hussein Obama, persecutors have an astonishingly unbroken record of failure in their attempts to destroy the Church.  It can also be amusing to see all the many ways Obama drives his approval ratings down to historic lows.  Unfortunately, with his utter disregard for the Constitution, Obama and comrades will likely become more dangerous and destructive as his political situation deteriorates.  Now he is attempting to reverse another of President Reagan's initiatives - the US-Vatican partnership which facilitated the collapse of Soviet communism.

Obama’s call to close Vatican embassy is ‘slap in the face’ to Roman Catholics

The Obama administration, in what’s been called an egregious slap in the face to the Vatican, has moved to shut down the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See — a free-standing facility — and relocate offices onto the grounds of the larger American Embassy in Italy.
The new offices will be in a separate building on the property, Breitbart reported.

And while U.S. officials are touting the relocation as a security measure that’s a cautionary reaction to last year’s attacks on America's facility in Benghazi, several former American envoys are raising the red flag.
It’s a “massive downgrade of U.S.-Vatican ties,” said former U.S. Ambassador James Nicholson in the National Catholic Reporter. “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.”
