The head of the highest court in the Vatican, Cardinal Raymond Burke, says Barack Obama’s policies “have become progressively more hostile toward Christian civilization.”
The Obama Administration is currently suing the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic order who cares for poor elderly Americans. The Obama administration does not believe the Little Sisters of the Poor aren’t religious enough for a religious exemption from the HHS mandate.

President Barack Obama’s policies “have become progressively more hostile toward Christian civilization,” Cardinal Raymond Burke, head of the highest court at the Vatican, said in a recent interview.
Cardinal Burke added that Obama wants to restrict religious freedom and force the individuals, outside of his or her place of worship, “to act against his rightly-formed conscience, even in the most serious of moral questions.”
In an interview first published in Polish in Polonia Christiana magazine and republished exclusively in English at LifeSite News, Cardinal Burke, the former archbishop of St. Louis, was asked about President Obama’s policies towards Christian civilization and if there are any “Catholic reactions against this policy? If yes, what are they, [or] if not, why?”
Cardinal Burke, who heads the Apostolic Signatura, the highest court at the Vatican, said: “It is true that the policies of the president of the United States of America 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.”
