It will verify the fact that religious freedom in Vietnam is REAL, despite accusations. His visit will be welcome by christians in that peaceful country!

They are basically godless liars who , under the pressure of the EU and the US are reaching out to Vatican to polish their image and to seek economic aids.

They simply hated the Catholics because of a long bloody conflict in which the Vietnamese Catholics have proved to be the most fervent anti- communists in the wolrd. The Viet Catholics have been the most faithful Christians. We have been loyal to our God, rather than to the goodless dictator Ho chi Minh who put his own commmunist party before the interest of Vietnamese people

The idolatry of State Worship must be abandoned for there is only one God where all things came from. The Church will always emerge triumphant and will be able to conquer its enemy in its battles without using force like what happened to pagan Rome.

A papal visit would only embellish the international prestige of the Vietnamese rulers.The Communists were crude paysans, now they have become gentlemen murderers. They entertain you in lavish parties, host you in 5 star hotels while aiming their cameras and voice recorders at you. You are condemned to be their slaves for life if you are caught in some faiblesses not proper to clerics, especially to envoys from the Vatican. They have no squirms to promise heaven and earth then have no shame breaking them.Please most caution is needed when we deal with Communists.

How many countryies in the world wants their people loyal to the pope and care about the vatican/church than their own countries ????
Is this the reason why many Vietnamese Catholic loyal to France/US than to Viet Nam in the past wars ?
