This just in from Thefederalist.com:
"According to reports, the Vatican and Communist China have reached an agreement that would end six decades of diplomatic gridlock. While details of the agreement haven’t been officially announced, from what has been leaked to the public, Catholics in China and around the world have reason to be concerned." READ ARTICLE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: What is becoming more clear every day is that the honeymoon is over for Pope Francis. Francis fatigue is at an all-time high, and what we see now is the same phenomenon we saw with Candidate Hillary Clinton: A politician whose "wild popularity" is an illusion that depends wholly on a crooked media. The real world has had enough.
As the Federalist puts it, and we couldn't agree more, "While the Vatican hasn’t announced any final official agreement with the Chinese Communist government yet, what has been disclosed so far has made some Chinese Catholics feel a sense of betrayal. It’s clear that Pope Francis is no Pope John Paul II. Pope John Paul II joined Margaret Thatcher and President Reagan to defeat Communism. But Pope Francis has joined President Obama in capitulating to oppressive authoritarian regimes like Cuba, all in the name of “openness.” His efforts only lend legitimacy to these regimes, while failing to offer relief to the people they oppress."
Meanwhile, Cardinal Joseph Zen, the highest ranking Chinese Catholic, had this to say to The Guardian about Pope Francis the Humble: “You cannot go into negotiations with the mentality ‘we want to sign an agreement at any cost,’ then you are surrendering yourself, you are betraying yourself, you are betraying Jesus Christ."
Enough already, Your Holiness!
