From the cited: "In an address to a symposium on Wednesday, Pompeo did not directly address the Vatican agreement with Beijing but described China as the world’s worst abuser of religious rights." By appearances, the Vatican is cowering in fear of the Chinese behemoth that revels in the persecution of anyone whose religion is not Communist atheism. The millions persecuted in China may rival the tens of millions murdered by the Communist regime in previous decades. And the Vatican stands idly by.
