Vatican snubs Taiwan but thanks Communist China for medical supplies
Although both Communist China and Taiwan have donated much-needed medical supplies to the Vatican as the coronavirus has overwhelmed the Italian peninsula, the Holy See publicly thanked China for its generosity but has remained silent about Taiwanâ€™s.
â€śIn recent days, donations of medical supplies have arrived from China to the Vatican Pharmacy,â€ť said Matteo Bruni, director of the Vatican press office, who indicated that the gifts are â€śan expression of the solidarity of the Chinese people â€¦ to all those who are committed in assisting people struck by the COVID-19 and in the prevention of the coronavirus epidemic that is underway.â€ť
â€śThe Holy See appreciates this generous gesture and expresses its gratitude to the bishops, the Catholic faithful, the institutions and all other Chinese citizens for this humanitarian initiative, assuring them of the esteem and prayers of the Holy Father,â€ť Bruni said...

I personally believe the RCC is the great whore noted in Revelations. They are a pseudo Christian organization that has over a billion members, so their influence is great. I was raised catholic and when asked we never said we were Christian, but catholic. Today, because of ecumenicalism and lukewarm Christianity they are now considered to be Christian in every respect. Billy Graham and Vatican 2 probably did more to normalize this satanic organization than anything.
Pope Francis is bound to lean over to the Left and away from Christ. Francis and the popish commie horde he leads have always been that way inclined even before the 'commie' ideology was invented by Karl.
The difference is that the old popes didn't fight for workers ownership - by their deceit and chicanery they plundered for 'papal ownership' including the lives of the peasants.
Francis comes from the communist/socialist South American nations. He was born into this extortionist commie ideology. Neither the Vatican or the communist ideology is "For the people;" - Both are "For the Party" - Which means ultimately Big Brother oligarchy, gets rich and gets power. The despot in disguise.
Whereas Taiwan has developed into democracy. Which is bad business for the papal anti-christ.

As this article from several years ago points out Franny seems to be naive about Communists Interesting that the Catholic Church gets the short end of the stick.
