Demand Pope Francis Resign or Zero-Tolerance is a Farce: Accusations against Cdl. Law don't Approach what AP Reports Victim says of Bishop Barros and Francis's Cover-up

On December 12, 2002, the New York Times headline was:

"Catholic Lay Group Demands Resignation of Cardinal Law"

No accusation against Cardinal Bernard Law for covering-up sex abusing priest ever came close to the accusations made by the victims of Fr. Fernando Karadima against Bishop Juan Barros and the Pope Francis cover-up that the Associated Press reported today:

"Pope Francis received a victim's letter in 2015... contradicting the Pope's recent insistence that no victim had come forward to denounce the cover-up... members of the Pope's Commission for the Protection of Minors... hand-deliver[ed] a letter to the Pope about Barros. The letter from Juan Carlos Cruz details the abuse... He described how Karadima would kiss Barros and fondle his genitals, and do the same to younger priests and teens."
(, "AP Exclusive: 2017 letter blies pope's claim of ignorance," February 5, 2018)

Imagine if Cardinal Law had kissed the sex abusing priests of Boston and then watched the predators abusing minors and the US Bishops didn't demand he resign.

The Cruz accusation is, also, corroborated by another Karadima victim Dr. James Hamilton. Hamilton said:

"I saw how Barros watched it all."
(Remnant, "Vatican Watch... So Much for Pope's Child Protection Commission," by Elizabeth Yore, July 12, 2017)

In the above article, attorney Elizabeth Yore, before quoting Dr. Hamilton, reported:

"[O]ver 1300 Catholics in Osorno, along with 30 diocesan priests, and 120 members of the Chilean Parliament sent a letter to Pope Francis urging him to rescind the appointment of Bishop Barros which was scheduled for March 21, 2015."

The College of Cardinals, all Catholic bishops and the media must demand that Pope Francis abdicate.

If they don't demand that Francis abdicate then the credibility of the media, the Cardinals and the bishops is a farce as well as everything that they have said about zero-tolerance for bishops who cover-up sex abuse is a farce.

Say an Our Father now that the media, the College of Cardinals and all the bishops demand that Pope Francis abdicate and that God have mercy on Francis and give healing to the sex abused victims.
