U.S. must embrace Holy See

Prophecy Sign:  The False Religious system of the last days

John, the Revelator warned that in the last days, the religions of the world would come together in ecumenical harmony and work together in alliance with the political and economic spheres to bring about a brand new world order.  John saw this scenario as a woman, (the false religious system), riding a beast, (the political/economic sphere).  This false religious system would point the world to the worship of the Antichrist who would head this new world order. 

How interesting to read of this very prophetic scenario being hailed as a great opportunity for America.  A merger, (or "embrace" as it's called in the article), of what many prophecy scholars consider to be Mystery Babylon of both the religious aspect, (the Roman Church), and the economic/political aspect, (America).

Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.  The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. The name written on her forehead was a mystery: Babylon the great the mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth. Revelation 17:3-5 NIV

U.S. must embrace Holy See
The past few years have seen cordial but cooling relations between the United States and the Vatican. Since President Obama took office, he has visited the Vatican just once, and the administration has demonstrated little more than a perfunctory interest in the Holy See's diplomatic role in the world. This is a lost opportunity at a critical time for America. U.S. foreign policy has much to gain from its relationship with the Holy See, the governing body of the Catholic Church. No institution on earth has both the international stature and the global reach of the Holy See — the "soft power" of moral influence and authority to promote religious freedom, human liberties, and related values that Americans and our allies uphold worldwide.
The United States and the Holy See remain two of the most significant institutions in world history, one a beacon of democracy and progress, the other a sanctum of faith and allegiance to timeless principles. Despite these differences between the first modern democracy and the longest surviving Western monarchy, both were founded on the idea that "human persons" possess inalienable natural rights granted by God.
