The Vatican's chief justice believes that President Barack Obama's policies have been hostile toward Christians, the Drudge Report website reports today (March 24, 2014).
In an interview with the Catholic magazine "Polonia Christiana," Cardinal Raymond Burke said that Obama "promotes anti-life and anti-family policies."
"It is true that the policies of the president of the United States 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," Burke told the magazine.
Burke -- the former archbishop of St. Louis -- stated that Obama is trying to "restrict" religion. "Now he 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," Burke said.
