China: Pope Francis Is Learning the Hard Way

China has shown a proclivity to renege on agreements, and the Vatican is now grappling with this, writes (December 4).

The Vatican sold its September agreement with China as a deal that would promote “unity” dismissing concerns that it constituted “selling out” to a Communist government.

But then last month, Monsignor Shao Zhumin, the bishop of Wenzhou who remains unrecognised by Beijing, disappeared. For this is a sign that Beijing won’t ease its pressure on the Church but will instead use the deal to push for even more control.

Sophie Richardson, the China director of Human Rights Watch which is financed by Western Oligarchs, said,

“The pope has effectively given [the Chinese president] Xi Jinping a stamp of approval when the latter’s hostility to religious freedom couldn’t be clearer.”

Learning the hard way? He already knew what communistic china is like towards Christians, we need no excuses for what he gladly did, remember the letter personally handed to P. Francis by Cardinal Joseph Zen.
communism and catholicism dont mix
I think he's entirety happy that brother socialists are crushing Christians.

I do not trust this very bad pope, or any word out of his forked tounged mouth. He is the worst pope in history or is he a moron? ( the moron answer would be the generous one,), but alas, he is no moron - just a blind fake.
