FATCA-Vatican2015On a day that saw the Vatican sign on to the U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, Russia’s Vladimir Putin met with Pope Francis in the hope of finding peaceful solutions in Ukraine and Syria.

Americanized Catholics have time and again opted for the darkness of American Foreign Policy over the light of the Gospel.

An honest person following events in Syria and Ukraine knows the U.S. is the black hand in both situations, and the greatest threat to peace and stability in the world today. Most troubling are Catholics (going back to U.S. Cardinal Gibbons snubbing Pope Benedict XV’s attempt to end WWI) who have appeased and even supported America’s treachery.
