Vatican City Should Not Have U.S. Embassy

To The Reader’s Forum:

I am writing regarding religion and embassies.

Some nations such as England and Sweden have official religions, but as basically being nations, they should qualify for embassies. But in my opinion, the Vatican is a whole different story. Although it has some characteristics of a nation, it is basically the headquarters for the Roman Catholic Church, and as being such, I don’t believe it qualifies for a United States embassy (which it has).

I certainly wouldn’t want the United Methodist Church (of which I am a member) and the United States to have mutual embassies.
