Vatican: New book of leaked documents ‘criminal’

But the state could not have attempted subjecting all Christian institutions to state power unless the [Roman Catholic and liberal Protestant] Church[es] had exhibited philosophical and theological weaknesses which have encouraged [Obama’s statist] predations.  The Catholic Church, along with most Main Line denominations, has indulged in a long flirtation with leftist leaning liberation theology.  It has been in bed for decades with theology which has incorporated socialist and Marxist doctrines and tactics.

[Yes, the list also included several mainline “Protestant” churches as well, including ELCA, PC(USA) & UMC, but since none of them is evangelical (whether classically defined as supporting biblical inerrancy or contemporaneously defined as anything other than mainline “Protestant’ or Roman Catholic, ASND had no Update category in which to cite them.]
