President Barack Obama's policies have become progressively more hostile toward Christian civilization, Cardinal Raymond Burke,head of the highest court at the Vatican, said in a recent interview.
Cardinal Burke added that Obama wants to restrict religious freedom and force the individuals, outside of his or her place of worship,to act against his rightly-formed conscience,even in the most serious of moral questions.
It is true that the policies of the president of the United States of America have become progressively more hostile toward Christian civilization. He appears to be a totally secularized man who aggressively promotes anti-life and anti-family policies.
Now he [Obama] wants to restrict the exercise of the freedom of religion to freedom of worship; that is,he holds that one is free to act according to his conscience within the confines of his place of worship but that,once the person leaves the place of worship,the government can constrain him to act against his rightly-formed conscience, even in the most serious of moral questions, said Cardinal Burke.
...Sadly,one has the impression that a large part of the population is not fully aware of what is taking place, said the cardinal. In a democracy,such a lack of awareness is deadly. It leads to the loss of the freedom,which a democratic government exists to protect. It is my hope that more and more of my fellow citizens,as they realize what is happening,will insist on electing leaders who respect the truth of the moral law as it is respected in the founding principles of our nation.

Good. If a high member of the Curia is saying this, that means their intelligence about what and who Obama actually is is much worse.
Who would have guessed?
Pushing homosexuality, and going on the record that he sides with Muslims....
What was this person's first clue? /s
Too bad Cardinal Burke wasn’t elected pope last year. God bless him for not being afraid to speak the plain truth.
And here I thought I was the only one to notice the anti-Christian bias of the Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut.
Rhetorical question, I know. What could be more anti-Christian than the Anti-Christ?
Cardinal Burke understands and talks of freedom better than just about anyone in the American government. God bless him.
They’re speaking out now! We do indeed live for hope..
Real Einsteins behind that wall in Rome.
Took em five years to figure it out.
NSS! Glad you noticed....
The Obama administration and its opponents are renewing the Supreme Court battle over President Barack Obama's health care law in a case that pits the religious rights of employers against the rights of women to the birth control of their choice
Next Tues March 25 , U.S. Supreme Court
I’m a bit out of the loop on Catholic policy, is this the first time we’ve had a senior member of Catholicism make such a rebuke toward a non-Soviet leader?
Yeah, well who is he to judge?
“...Vatican Chief Justice: Obamas Policies Progressively More Hostile Toward Christian Civilization...”
Gee... and it only took them 6 years to figure out what we’ve been saying since day one.
Isn't it supposed to be 'Raymond Cardinal Burke'. Not an expert on ecclesiastical syntax, though; could be wrong. But he's definitely right.
They knew it all along. This statement says "progressively more". Would make no sense to say that on day 1.
Agreed. They perhaps have given up on negotiating or working with him and have started to peel back the layers of diplomacy.
