Mr. Obama has ignored Christians being slaughtered in Muslim countries, he has aimed the HHS mandate directly at Catholics, and now, instead of beefing up security at the US Embassy in the Vatican, he is moving it out of the Vatican completely. The claim is that it is not safe.
There is a good reason for religious people to be very concerned.
Mr. Obama has already offended the Catholic church by sending openly-activist abortionists to the Vatican as Ambassadors.
Life news sees it as a snub and fears that it is a first step in pushing the United Nations to remove the Holy See’s official status at the UN.
The Vatican didn’t even have an Ambassador until Ronald Reagan recognized their importance in the downfall of communism in 1984. The church is rabidly anti-communism.

The concerns aren’t at all unrealistic.
Mr. Obama gave a speech in Ireland on his last trip to the country in which he told them to get rid of their religious schools because they are too divisive. Mr. Obama is committed to secularism over religion in every facet of life it would seem.
In October 2012, the US-based group Catholics for Choice lobbied to have the Vatican recognised as a religion not a state and pushed for their official status in the UN to be removed. Catholics for Choice is a far-left advocacy organization of alleged Catholics who love abortion and serve as a thorn in the side of real Catholics.
You will never guess who funds the Catholics for Choice (CFC)…okay, maybe you will, it’s George Soros. He also funds the faux Catholics at the Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United. The Socialist John Podesta, who helped run Obama’s transition team, is Chair of Soros’ Center for American Progress, and he has stated that he works closely with both groups.
Their self-described mission: “to shape and advance sexual and reproductive ethics that are based on justice, reflect a commitment to women’s well-being and respect and affirm the capacity of women and men to make moral decisions about their lives. CFC works in the United States and internationally to ensure that all people have access to safe and affordable reproductive health-care services and to infuse our core values into public policy, community life and Catholic social teaching and thinking.”
This group recently attacked the Church for complaining that Bill de Blasio has a 60-member transition team with rabbis, an Imam and ministers but not one priest. They told the church that they should stop ‘belly-aching’ because de Blasio is obviously aware that the priests are ‘too busy’ to be on the team. De Blaseo is a communist who refers to himself a Progressive or Democratic Socialist at various times.
