I suspect that this is ultimately the way he will attack the Catholic Church (and, in passing, any orthodox Christian church). What Obama would really like to do is to force a schism so that there will be a “Patriotic Catholic Church” that will do everything progressives want: “marry” gays, “ordain” women, support abortion, etc.

He suspects, probably correctly, that this would be the larger segment of the schism, and that the small remnant faithful to Rome would be powerless and without support. In addition, the Patriotic Church would get all the property and resources, and the members of the Roman remnant would probably be deprived even of their civil rights. For the Church, it would be like facing Henry VIII all over again, or perhaps a combination of Henry VIII and Mao.

Georgetown will be ground zero for the “Patriotic Catholic Church”.
