“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Vatican Says, “Thanks, But No Thanks,” to Caroline Kennedy

In reinforcing my point that the Roman Catholic Church in America has grown impatient with pro-abortion, so-called Catholic politicians - and now will take a more vocal, proactive approach to confront them - the Milan newspaper Il Giornale reports that the Vatican has Vetoed Obama’s choice of Caroline Kennedy as Ambassador to the Vatican.

I am not sure a person from such a prestigious American "Catholic" family as Caroline would have been vetoed even as much as a five years back, which in itself shows a change in tactic.

According to the paper, the Vatican also vetoed Douglas Kmiec as another Obama choice for Ambassador to the Holy See.

Let take a moment here to connect the Quid Pro Quo dots on these appointments.

Caroline Kennedy was one of the first well known Democrats to break with the Clintons and publicly endorse Obama.

Douglas Kmiec is an Obama hack who wrote a book trying to manipulate the Catholic case for voting for Obama last fall in the hopes of convincing - read confusing - some less discerning Catholics that they could vote for Obama and maintain their status as good Catholics. The Pepperdine Law professor was also once denied Communion publicly in California.

The UK Guardian states:

"There is unhappiness in Washington that the Vatican should veto its choices because they do not adhere to Catholic teachings. But the White House has been caught off guard by the intensity of the backlash within parts of the US Catholic community, which is divided over whether private religious beliefs should decide public policy."

It is a whole new ballgame for Roman Catholicism in America! The Vatican has sent a message to the Obama administration loud and clear.
