Vatican Secretary of State blasts Rome conference on St. John Paul II
ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - A conference of eminent academics, politicians and writers celebrating the nationalist legacy of Pope St. John Paul II and targeting Pope Francis's globalist agenda has triggered a counterblast from the Holy See's head of state and Catholic and secular establishment media.
Cardinal Pietro Parolin blasted the Rome conference on "God, Honor, Country: President Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and the Freedom of Nations" as "fundamentally infantile" even though speakers like Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orbán emphasized the values of "Christian liberty" and Europe's Christian heritage and called upon Western nations to rally against the worldwide persecution of Christians.
Addressing a packed press briefing in Italian before the two-day conference, opening speaker Giorgia Meloni, president of Fratelli d'Italia told Church Militant's Rome correspondent that except for leaders like Orbán "nobody [in Europe] is speaking for persecuted Christians."
Even when a recent government commission reported on minorities to the Italian Parliament, "we asked them to specifically mention the persecution of Christians, and they voted against this proposal," she said last Monday.
"In Europe, we care about every minority, but people don't want to see the biggest persecution of all the global persecution of Christians," lamented Meloni, who was flying the next day to attend President Trump's White House prayer breakfast.
"This is what I appreciate about Viktor Orbán. He has the courage to address the persecution of Christians and ask Europe to help Christians in the world. Because nobody will do this if Europe doesn't do it," the leader of Italy's only conservative party added.

Bergolio is the antipope.
No doubt that Francis the Fake hates America but loves taking and spending those dirty yankee dollars.
Read this over at FB, good piece! Thanks for posting. Love Orban!
There used to be a question ‘Is the Pope Catholic?’ but now it should be ‘Is this moronic idiot a real Pope?’
Use the holy hand grenade!
