If you check the link, even just what I quoted, for the whole article is does say the Catholic church. I presume that means in the US. The Vatican is in Italy. They shouldn't have a say since they're a foreign govt.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
