CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Joseph Zen has replied to a rebuke from Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, and escalated his criticism of Cardinal Pietro Parolin. He charged that Cardinal Parolin, the Secretary of State, “manipulates the Holy Father.” To Cardinal Re’s claim that Pope Benedict XVI had approved an early draft of the Vatican-Beijing agreement, Cardinal Zen responded: “Why was it not signed then?” He insisted that the former Pontiff had rejected the deal.

    The Chinese problem is not that complex. The communist government wants total control and will slowly destroy whatever is Catholic. They are already destroying churches and forcing others to put Communist propaganda into the existing churches. This is but the beginning. Cardinal Zen is right that the Vatican got zero in this deal. Communism is simple. You bend the knee to them or they will try to destroy you. Watch out USA. It is coming our way. St Michael help.
