President Reagan and the Pope


The President and the Pope

More things you may have missed.


   "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion." These are the very first words of America's "Bill of Rights" and were meant to warn us never to allow any religious establishment the opportunity to influence the operation of our government. These words were in fact deliberately placed in the U.S. Constitution by our founding fathers to protect us from the corrupt Roman papacy our founders came to America to escape. In Europe the Catholic Church had infiltrated European government and was burning Protestants alive in public "Inquisitions" where innocent Protestants, Jews, and Islamics were tortured, murdered, or sentenced to the rowing galleys of slave ships, for the "crime" of refusing to accept the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church and its papacy. Our founders firmly believed in following the laws of God, but feared any church influence in the operation of their government. They fought for separation of church and state, but believed in a permanent bond between God and state.

   It would be nearly two centuries before the U.S. finally saw it's first Catholic president and only two decades later when another person raised in a household headed by a strong Irish Catholic father, would also decide to run for the White House. Aware of the liabilities of being a Catholic running for the White House, Ronald Reagon joined the Episcopal Church which functions similarly, but does not observe the papacy. While this president occupied the Oval Office, another Irish Catholic held the position of Speaker of the House. The fact that these two Catholic raised politicians controlled two of the three branches of the U.S. government didn't go unnoticed by the Holy See in Rome. The president was soon summoned to the Vatican for an audience with the pope. The president met with Pope John Paul II in the Vatican on June 7th, 1982, in an unrecorded meeting to express his solidarity with Rome on many political and social issues. It was quickly arranged for Jesuit legal advisors to act on completing the tasks necessary for establishing official recognition of the Catholic Church by the U.S. government, and on Jan. 10, 1984 Congress did in fact make a "law respecting an establishment of religion" and created an official U.S. Embassy to the Holy See in Rome, and appointed an official Ambassador to the Holy See, paid for by U.S. tax dollars.


DECEPTION: Reagan was the most Constitution oriented president.

THE TRUTH: Reagan realized our Founders' greatest fear.


   On Thursday, September 24th, 2015, at a joint meeting of Congress presided over by America’s Catholic Vice President Joe Biden, and America’s Catholic Speaker of the House, John Boehner, the new Jesuit supreme leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis I, delivered a speech to both houses of Congress. His speech was interrupted by many standing ovations by all members present as he laid out his bold new vision for America on numerous political and cultural issues. Top U.S. government officials would now regularly visit the Vatican to consult with the pope on important U.S. political and social matters.
