Denounce Media Predator Protectors of Francis, Demand Investigation & Ask: For what Reasons should the Media Protect a Sex Abuse Covering-up Pope?

CUT THE CRAP!

Stop wringing your hands and asking:

How long can the media narrative of taking the side of the predator and those who cover-up for them because of their leftist ideology continue?

Instead:

First, denounce the media as predator protectors!

Next, demand the media investigate if the credible allegations of Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano against Pope Francis are true.

And if they refuse then demand they admit they they don't care if Francis is guilty of sex abuse cover-up so long as he has a leftist ideology such as predators like Bill Clinton or Harvey Weinstein who they protected for decades.

Finally, ask them these questions:

For what reasons should the media protect a sex abuse covering-up Pope and not demand a investigation to reveal the truth?

Do you think the media such as the New York Times, Reuter and others should protect a sex abuse covering-up Pope because "disgruntled conservatives" in "a concerted effort" want to "oust" a "liberal" Pope?

Answer: yes or no.

Do you think the media should protect a sex abuse covering-up Pope for any of the above reasons or for any reason and not demand a investigation to reveal if the credible allegations of cover-up are true?

Answer: yes or no.

Do you think it is vile, disgusting and nauseating that the media is defending a papacy credibly accused of protecting predators and not calling for an investigation to reveal the truth because that Pope agrees with the media's liberal ideology?

Answer: yes or no.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Vigano, Benedict's Resignation, the Gay Lobby and the Francis Papacy

On August 27, author and philosopher Dr. Taylor Marshall on YouTube in "Dr. Taylor Marshall ties together Vatican financial scandal with homosexual activity" summarized what lead to Pope Benedict XVI's resignation and Pope Francis's papacy:

If Archbishop Carlo Marie Vigano is telling the truth then it appears that the Vatican gay lobby apparently forced Pope Benedict XVI's resignation and it appears that Pope Francis has "reinstated and promoted" all those who brought about the resignation.

Marshall stated:

"First of, Vigano blew the whistle on money laundering."

"Two, the accusations of money laundering leads to the Vatileaks scandal."

"Three, the Vatileaks scandal leads Benedict to form a secret investigation with three cardinals."

"Four, those three cardinals expose moral rot, sexual deviancy, that is paired up with financial irregularity."

"This is what moves the Pope to resignation. And just to make sure there is enough pressure on him to do it and do it quick something funny goes on with the Vatican Bank beginning on January 1, 2013."

"And it seems the powerful cardinals within Vatican City wanted it to happen fast because they don't want the 300 page dossier released to the public because there is moral scandal in those pages."

"That binder was left with Pope Francis, but nothing has been done. And what we see is that those who were oppose to Benedict XVI theologically, but also on administration, have been reinvolved, reinstated and promoted."

On The Sydney Morning Herald verified Marshall's explanation of why Pope Benedict XVI resigned:

"Pope Benedict XVI resigned after an internal investigation informed him about a web of blackmail, corruption and gay sex in the Vatican, Italian media reports say."

"Three cardinals were asked by Benedict to verify allegations of financial impropriety, cronyism and corruption exposed in the so-called VatiLeaks affair."

"On December 17, 2012, they handed the pontiff two red-leather bound volumes, almost 300 pages long, containing "an exact map of the mischief and the bad fish" inside the Holy See, La Repubblica said."

"'It was on that day, with those papers on his desk, that Benedict XVI took the decision he had mulled over for so long,' said the centre-left newspaper."

"... La Repubblica quoted a man described as "very close" to the authors as saying the information it contained was "all about the breach of the sixth and seven commandments" - which say "thou shalt not commit adultery" and 'thou shalt not steal.'"

"The cardinals were said to have uncovered an underground gay network, whose members organise sexual meetings in several venues in Rome and Vatican City, leaving them prone to blackmail."

"The secret report also delves into suspect dealings at the Institute for Religious Works (IOR), the Vatican's bank."
(The Sydney Morning Herald, "Vatican scandal cited in Pope resignation," February 22, 2013)

On January 26, 2012, the Business Insider verified Marshall's narrative showing that the Vatican insiders removed Vigano for attempting to clean up those involved with "financial irregularity" who were the gay lobby:

"The show "The Untouchables", on private television network La 7 Wednesday night showed several letters that Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, the erstwhile deputy-governor of Vatican City, sent to superiors, including Pope Benedict, in 2011 about the corruption."

"... As deputy-governor of the Vatican City from 2009 to 2011, Vigano was the No. 2 official in a department responsible for maintaining the city-state's infrastructure."

"Soon after his appointment, Vigano discovered corruption, nepotism and cronyism, especially in the awarding of contracts to outside companies at inflated prices, which he sought to remedy."

"The TV program interviewed a member of the bankers' committee — whose face was blurred and voice changed to protect his identity — who said Vigano had a reputation as a "ballbreaker" among companies that had contracts with the Vatican, because of his emphasis on transparency and fair competition."

"... While Vigano turned Vatican City's budget from deficit to surplus during his tenure through cost-cutting, it made him some enemies, who had unsigned articles criticizing him as inefficient published in the Italian newspaper Il Giornale in 2011."

"On March 22, 2011, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone removed Vigano from his position for reasons identical to those published in an anonymous articles published against him." [https://www.businessinsider.com/carlo-maria-vigano-vatican-corruption-2012-1]

On June 11, 2013, The Telegraph revealed that even Francis verified Marshall's report that there was a gay lobby tied to "financial irregularity":

"The Pontiff supposedly made the claim during an audience last Thursday at the Vatican with a group of Latin American priests and nuns."

"'Yes, it is difficult,' he reportedly said. 'In the Curia there are holy people, truly holy people. But there is also a current of corruption, also there is, it is true ... they speak of a 'gay lobby' and that is true, it is there ... we will have to see what we can do.'"

"... In his audience, Pope Francis allegedly promised to reform the Vatican but said it would be 'difficult' and that he could not carry out the reforms himself because he was 'disorganised'. He reportedly said he would be relying on the commission of eight cardinals he appointed in April to organise reform of the Curia, which is due to meet in October."  [https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/vaticancityandholysee/10113779/Gay-lobby-in-the-Vatican-says-Pope-Francis.html]

Unfortunately, what The Telegraph didn't reveal or know is that Francis had been surrounded by a gay lobby as a cardinal in Argentina and surrounded himself with the gay lobby in the Vatican and in his "commission of eight [later nine] cardinals... to organise reform of the Curia" which is called the C9.

The Telegraph didn't know as Marshall put it that Francis "reinvolved, reinstated and promoted" the Vatican gay lobby:

The Catholic Argentinian website the Wanderer on October 23, 2014 posted "Unmasking Bergoglio":

"Bergoglio always had the "gay agenda" among his plans... It is a question of asking the Buenoairean clergy about the constant protection that he lavished on many homosexual priests."

"... Cardinal Bergoglio as Primate... of the Argentine Episcopal Conference... "[had a] "star"... of the Argentine Episcopate. The great theologian... of the poor [Archbishop Juan Carlos Maccarone]."

"Until... in March 2005 a video appeared in which the archbishop appeared having sexual games with a young man... Pope Benedict XVI... immediately removed [him from his]... position [as bishop]."

"The reaction of Bergoglio"

"By a letter that Maccarone himself directed in [to] his bother bishops, it can be easily deduced that the entire Argentine episcopal gang knew of his weakness... And, in spite of that, they promoted him to the episcopal office."

"... Bergoglio... issued a statement in which he expressed his 'gratitude' to the former bishop [Maccarone]."

"... The spokesman of the arzobipado porteno went out to say... the [sex] video corresponded to "the private life of Bishop Maccarone."

Jimmy Burns in his book "Francis, Pope of Good Promise" after referencing that "Maccarone resigned" because of the "videotape showing the bishop having 'intimate relations'" wrote:

"Bergoglio's own spokesman, rather than focus on Maccarone's political links with Kirchner, jumped to the bishop's defense claiming he had been set up."

"... Fortunato Millimaci, a Buenos Aires sociologist [said]... 'This means that the idea of the Catholic Church as a moral reference of a Catholic nation is very strongly in doubt... It shows that a double standard exists within the Church [of Bergoglio] itself.'" (Pages 231-232)

Francis's Vatican inner circle and C9 was largely composed of the gay lobby and those who covered-up for them:

Business Standard, September 19, 2017:

Francis's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith perfect Archbishop Ferrer will go to trail for "complicity in alleged cover-up" of paedophile priest.

The Telegraph, July 19, 2013:

"Pope's [Francis's] 'eyes and ears' in Vatican bank [allegedly] 'had string of homosexual affairs'... [Battista] Ricca is a trusted confidante of the Pope"

LifeSiteNews, March 7,2018:

Francis's closest advisor in the C9 papal inner circle Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga left in charge of his Honduras archdiocese his close confidant Bishop Juan Pineda "accused of 'abusing seminarians, having a string of male lovers.'"

National Catholic Reporter, April 29, 2014:

Francis's close advisor in C9 papal inner circle Cardinal "Errazuriz [and his]... successor... [Cardinal] Ezzati" "Chilean cardinals close to pope stained by abuse cover-ups" of priest sex abuser of Juan Carlos Cruz.

The Remnant, September 12, 2017:

Francis's confidant Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio's Secretary has homosexual orgy in Vatican:

"Secretary to the powerful Cardinal Francesco 'Positive Realities of Homosexuals'... [Coccopalmerio's Secretary] Capozzi was arrested for hosting a raucous drug fueled homosexual orgy."

New York Times, April 30, 2018:

"Cardinal George Pell, the [Francis] Vatican's third-highest-ranking official, will stand trail... of sex abuse."

BBC, August 29, 2010 & LifeSiteNews, September 16, 2017:

Francis collaborator invited by Pope to be number two representative in family synod "Belgian Cardinal Danneels condoned sex-abuse silence."

The Week, January 3, 2017:

"Pope Francis and his cardinal allies... known to interfere...  on abuse cases... Consider case of [serial sex-abuser] Fr. Mauro Inzoli... Francis returned him to the priestly state."

Vebuumdei.blogspot, June 23, 2014 & Catholic Monitor, April 18, 2017:

Francis strolled hand in hand down the street with gay activist Fr. Luigi Ciotti at a anti-gangster event.

Chiesa, December 16, 2016:

Vatican expert Sandro Magister said Francis has a "number of homosexual priests in the inner circle of his closest collaborators and confidants."

Caucus99percent.com, 02/02/2018:

"Pope Francis' continuous aiding and abetting of sexual predators and his officials who protect them."

"Although he was personally informed of the accusations against them, Pope Francis protected these sexual predators: Fr. Mauro Inzoli (the pope later defrocked Inzoli but he is still a free man) Luis Fernando Figari, Archbishop Anthony Apuron, Auxiliary Bishop Gabino Miranda Melgarejo, Fr. Don Corradi and Archbishop Josef Wesolowski."

"After Pope Francis did nothing to stop Corradi, the priest and four others were arrested in November 2016 and charged with raping and molesting at least 22 children. More reports poured in and 'it’s now thought that as many as 60 children fell victim to abuse.'”

"Wesolowski was put under Vatican house arrest 14 months after the pope judged him to be guilty only after 'there was a serious risk that [he] would be arrested on Italian territory at the request of the Dominican Republic authorities and then extradited,' as reported by Corriere della Sera. The archbishop was found with more than 100,000 computer files of child pornography, a “key ingredient” in sex trafficking. Wesolowski continued to possess child pornography even under Vatican house arrest."

"Kamil Jarzembowski, a former student at the Vatican’s preseminary, wrote a letter about the sexual abuse of minors in the school and handed it directly to Pope Francis. The pope did nothing to stop it."

"Pope Francis had ordered an investigation of Honduran Bishop Juan José Pineda by an Argentine bishop who was “shocked” by “accounts of sexual abuse perpetrated against priests and seminarians …. So far the only action that has been taken has been to send Bishop Pineda to stay with Jesuits in Madrid on a short retreat,” wrote veteran Vatican reporter Edward Pentin."

"Pope Francis promoted Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican department that judges cases of clergy sexual abuse. While Ladaria held the second highest position in the CDF, he found Fr. Gianni Trotta guilty of sexually abusing minors in 2012 but failed to inform the Italian authorities. Trotta, already convicted of sexual violence against an 11-year-old and sentenced to eight years in prison by a civil court, is now standing trial for nine other alleged cases of sex abuse against boys that occurred in 2014. Ladaria, himself, will stand trial in April, accused by French authorities of “complicity in the alleged cover-up” of Fr. Bernard Preynat."

"A month after his election, the pope appointed a Council of Cardinals to help him govern the Church. Three of the eight initial members had protected pedophile priests: George Pell, Francisco Javier Errázuriz Ossa, and Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga who he named as head of the council."

Moreover, The Telegraph didn't know that the head of Francis's C9 was involved in "financial irregularity" and that as Marshall outlined it "something funny" went on with the Vatican Bank and apparently with the gay lobby that was the Obama administration.

Obama's NSA spied on Benedict and Francis "before, during and after the Conclave" according to the website Eye Witness and the head of Francis's C9 called the "Vice Pope" was involved in "financial irregularity":

Ganesh Sahathevan is a Fellow at the (American Center for Democracy) ACD’s Economic Warfare Institute. 

The ACD/EWI team specializes in economic warfare, purposeful interference in civilian infrastructure, including the financial markets, transnational criminal and terrorist organizations. ACD fellow Sahathevan said Pope Francis's closest collaborator has "an illegal slush fund financed by George Soro":

"Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, the so-called "Vice Pope" given his close association with Pope Francis, has refused to answer questions concerning his work with a number of NGOs funded by billionaire George Soros.Cardinal Oscar has also refused to answer queries concerning any funding he, or entities associated with him, may have received from Soros..."

"... It does appear as if the "Vice Pope" is on some campaign to change the Vatican from within, and that he is doing so with what amounts to an illegal slush fund financed by George Soros." (realpolitikasia.blogspot.com, "'Vice Pope' Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga does not deny being funded by George Soros,and working with the 'Catholic Spring' movement ,"February 9, 2017),[https://acdemocracy.org/ourteam/], [http://realpolitikasia.blogspot.com.au/2017/02/vice-pope-cardinal-oscar-rodriguez.html?m=1]

Financial expert Sahathevan, also, reported that the most powerful official in Francis's Vatican, Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin, apparently knew that funds not appearing on "official balance sheets" could be illegal and he may be covering up illegal slush funds and asked Francis & Parolin to "come clean":

"As reported yesterday"

""Vice Pope" Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga does not deny being funded by George Soros,and working with the "Catholic Spring " movement"

"In the above story it was concluded that Oscar appears to be in charge of a slush fund financed by George Soros, which is intended to be used for purposes Oscar sees fit, which may include financing of a 'Catholic Spring.'"

"While that story was the result of an independent investigation by this writer it does seem that the Vatican's Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy, Cardinal George Pell, may have uncovered the existence of similar financial structures, even if he did not quite understand what it is he had uncovered."

"In late 2014 Pell announced that he had 'discovered that ... some hundreds of millions of euros were tucked away in particular sectional accounts (of departments within the Vatican ) and did not appear on the Vatican's balance sheet.'

"What was even more interesting than that revelation was the reaction of the Vatican's Director of the Holy See Press Office, Fr. Federico Lombardi, S.J, presumably acting under instructions from the  Vatican;s Secretary Of State  Cardinal Pietro Parolin [another C9 cardinal]:"

'It should be observed that Cardinal Pell has not referred to illegal, illicit or poorly administered funds, but rather funds that do not appear on the official balance sheets of the Holy See or of Vatican City State, and which have become known to the Secretariat for the Economy during the current process of examination and revision of Vatican administration...'"


"This statement was curious for Pell did not actually say that the accounts were 'illegal.' If anything Pell seemed not to understand that financial entities of any sort often have secret reserves, In fact, Pell concluded with some satisfaction that his discovery meant that the Vatican was well able to finance its activities..."

"..It does seem as if there is some concern within the Vatican that slush funds such as that which appear to be controlled by Cardinal Oscar, that ought to have been reported and accounted for as required by Canon Law, remain secret. Wikileaks and in time other publications are going to make that task  near impossible, and hence it is best that all concerned come clean."
(realpolitikasia.blogspot.com, "Vice Pope" Cardinal Oscar's Soros funding-Has the Vatican Bank acted as conduit , is it in breach of international AML,CTF and KYC regulations?,"February 14, 2017), [http://realpolitikasia.blogspot.com/2017/02/vice-pope-cardinal-oscars-soros-funding_14.html?m=1]

Sahathevan could have predicted that Francis's chief adviser later in 2017, again, would be accused of financial corruption as reported by Edward Pentin:

"One of Pope Francis’ chief advisers on Church reform has rejected allegations of financial corruption made in an Italian publication this week, but questions remain over diocesan accounting procedures...Honduran Cardinal Oscar Andrés Rodriguez Maradiaga... The documents, which the Register has obtained, show general figures denoting gross income for the archdiocese and spending running into millions of dollars, but with no particulars."

"One source with a detailed knowledge of the issue told the Register the documentation omits $1.3 million that the Honduran government gave the archdiocese to be spent on Church projects."[http://m.ncregister.com/blog/edward-pentin/cardinal-maradiaga-denies-financial-allegations-but-questions-remain-unansw#.WnVUC3OIYwh]

What financial expert Sahathevan apparently didn't know was that Parolin and Pell were in a power struggle when he reported the above. Cardinal Pell was suppose to reform the Vatican corruption including the Secretary of State's finances.

Parolin according to the Catholic Herald in a "series of power struggles" ended the outside audit and Vatican financial reform "even before" Pell was forced to return to Australia on old sex-abuse allegations. ("How Cardinal Parolin won the Vatican civil war," November 9, 2017)

In the Pell power struggle shady and suspicious actions were taken by a employee of Parolin (Archbishop Angelo Becciu) on former Auditor General Libero Milone. The Auditor suspecting that he was being spied on brought in a external contractor who "determined" his computer was "infected with file copying spyware" according to LifeSiteNews.com in its September 28, 2017 article "Former Vatican auditor accused of spying says 'shady games' going on in Rome."

The website The Eye Witness reported on shady and suspicious spying done on Pope Benedict and Pope Francis "before, during and after" the last conclave:

"It is now revealed that the NSA was tapping the phones and communications of the entire Vatican establishment, including Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis before, during and after the Conclave.  Is such a thing possible?  Here is one of many reports:"
 
"http://voiceofrussia.com/news/2013_10_30/Nothing-is-sacred-to-US-NSA-snoops-on-Pope-7540/..."

"In another report, from Al-Jazeera we read:
 
"Bergoglio ' had been a person of interest to the American secret services since 2005, according to Wikileaks' it said."

"The bugged conversations were divided into four categories: 'leadership intentions', 'threats to financial systems', 'foreign policy objectives' and 'human rights', it claimed."

"Why the American Secret Service considered Cardinal Bergoglio a person of interest for the past eight years is an interesting question although the Secret Service like all other US agencies is widely believed to have been corrupted, so it remains unclear as to how one should assess this piece of information or what it was about the activities of the Cardinal that prompted their extreme interest.  Still it is curious to say the very least..."

"...But if the Conclave was compromised in some way (and even if it wasn't we do know that the NSA has been listening to electronic communications of high Churchmen in Rome and probably everywhere else) then this opens up a whole new avenue of inquiry."
[http://theeye-witness.blogspot.com/2013/10/a-compromised-conclave.html?m=1]

One reason why the NSA could reasonably have been spying on Pope Benedict and Cardinal Bergoglio who would become Pope Francis at that conclave could be that the spy agency was corrupted by the Obama administration.

It is not unreasonable to assume that the pro-gay administration wanted Bergoglio to replace Benedict.

Benedict's agenda put anti-gay and moral pro-family issues as top priorities while Francis gives lip services to those issues, but sees them as secondary to his agenda which is almost identical to the pro-gay Obama administration and Soros agendas on issues such as the gay agenda, global warming and unrestricted mass immigration (See: http://catholicmonitor.blogspot.com/2017/12/the-dark-lord-soros-his-servant-white_27.html?m=1).

Zero Hedge shows that NSA became a servant of the Democrat's agenda and it's FISA abuses:

"Donald Trump must veto reauthorized NSA spying powers which passed both the House and the Senate yesterday without a single reform, in light of an explosive four-page memo said to detail sweeping FISA Abuses by the FBI, DOJ and the Obama Administration during and after the 2016 presidential election, says former NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden." [https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-19/snowden-trump-must-veto-reauthorized-nsa-spying-powers-light-fisa-memo]

Another reason is related to the first reason for the spying is that the Democrats and some liberal Republicans are funded by Soros who is pushing unrestricted mass immigration:

"There does indeed seem to be a “hidden Soros Slush Fund” in the Democratic Party’s official platform, as commentator Michelle Malkin recently pointed out... Malkin suggests that Obama’s rival for the White House, John McCain, hasn’t criticized the slush fund proposal because his Reform Institute received $150,000 from the Open Society Institute." [https://capitalresearch.org/article/the-hidden-soros-slush-fund/]

The final reason for the spying, and the word could needs to be stressed, could be Democrat slush funds and financial improprieties in the Vatican Bank if the following report is true which can't be verified which brings us back to Sahathevan's call to Parolin and Francis to "come clean" as was attempted by Benedict:

"The following was reported by Bob Chapman in the International Forecaster blog. Chapman has been around forever and is well respected in many circles. He does not mention his source for the information..."

"On Wednesday 5th January 2011, it emerged that US establishment-related slush fund accounts had been located in, and seized from, the Vatican Bank in Rome. The source of funds for these accounts in almost every instance was found to be the US Treasury."

"Beneficiaries of the covert Vatican accounts include Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and each of the Obama children, Michelle Obama's mother, all the Bushes and the Clintons, including Chelsea Clinton, Joe Biden, Timothy Geithner, Janet Napolitano, several US Senators, including Mitch McConnell, several US Congressmen including John Boehner, several US Military Chiefs of Staff, the US Provost Marshal, the US Judge Advocate General, the US Supreme Court Chief Justice, John Roberts, several US Judges, the Pope, and several cardinals."

"Big money was found in each of the accounts. The longer the beneficiaries have been in office, the greater the account balances were found to be. They range from a few million USD to more than a billion USD in the case of John Roberts. The total number of slush fund accounts so far identified at the Vatican Bank is said to be between 600 and 700." [https://m.facebook.com/notes/jonas-clark/slush-fund-accounts-of-major-us-politicians-identified-and-seized-at-vatican-ban/491500200958/]

Akacatholic.com reported that evidence points to financial blackmail possibly being involved in the Pope Benedict XVI abdication who appeared to be attempting to uncover "financial improprieties" despite the Chapman report claim that Benedict had a "covert Vatican account" which can't be verified:

"An article by Italian journalist Maurizio Blondet is making the rounds alleging that Pope Benedict XVI was blackmailed into abdication by forces allied with SWIFT (the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication), which had a hand in the shutdown of ATM and bank card services at the Vatican in January of 2012."

"According to Blondet:
There was a blackmail of Benedict XVI, coming from who knows where, through SWIFT. The underlying reasons for this have not been clarified, but it is clear that SWIFT has intervened directly in the management of affairs of the Church..."

"...It strikes me as interesting that more attention isn’t being paid to the role played by Ronaldo Hermann Schmitz, the acting President of the IOR [Vatican Bank] Board at the time, given his ties to Deutsche Bank."

"I mean, one would think that the former Deutsche Bank Executive Director, even if unable to leverage his contacts within the German banking giant to forestall such a drastic move, would have at the very least been well aware of what was coming and could have perhaps taken steps to secure the services of another financial institution, as happened in short order soon afterwards."

"This leads me to wonder where Ronaldo Hermann Schmitz’s own interests may have lied as this was taking place."

"Let me be clear; I have no information implicating Schmitz in any nefarious activity; I am simply making common sense observations and asking questions that, curiously enough, have apparently never been addresses by those in the media; in spite of the extensive coverage these events received."

"In any case, one is still left to wonder what motivated Gotti Tedeschi’s removal."

"Given that the reform of the IOR [Vatican Bank], for all intents and purposes, was all but halted while interim President Schmitz acted as caretaker until a new President could be found, one might assume that this interruption alone was the primary motive."

"It seems rather clear for reasons addressed below, however, that the motive went well beyond simply protecting the interests of those whose financial improprieties Gotti Tedeschi was laboring to uncover, making it seem far more likely Gotti Tedeshi’s demise was undertaken in order to set in motion the events that would secure the abdication of the man who appointed him."

"Circumstantial evidence strongly attesting to this being the case can be found in the fact that the Vatican reached an agreement with a Swiss firm to resume ATM and other bank card transactions effective February 12, 2013, just one day after Benedict XVI announced his intention to abdicate.

Indeed, as far as I can tell, nothing of note had changed between the cessation of bank card operations on January 1st and their resumption on February 12th relative to the Vatican Bank’s compliance with international banking standards. Rather, the only noteworthy thing to change was the status of Benedict’s pontificate."

"Further evidence suggesting that the motives for Gotti Tedeschi’s removal extended beyond mere financial concerns." [https://akacatholic.com/money-sex-and-modernism/]

All Catholics need to know the answers to the following questions asked to President Donald Trump in a open letter about the conclave of Pope Francis and if financial blackmail possibly was involved in the Pope Benedict XVI abdication and Francis's election:

"With all of this in mind, and wishing the best for our country as well as for Catholics worldwide, we believe it to be the responsibility of loyal and informed United States Catholics to petition you to authorize an investigation into the following questions:
To what end was the National Security Agency monitoring the conclave that elected Pope Francis? [6]

-  What other covert operations were carried out by US government operatives concerning the resignation of Pope Benedict or the conclave that elected Pope Francis?

-  Did US government operatives have contact with the “Cardinal Danneels Mafia”?  [7]

-  International monetary transactions with the Vatican were suspended during the last few days prior to the resignation of Pope Benedict.  Were any U.S. Government agencies involved in this? [8]

-  Why were international monetary transactions resumed on February 12, 2013, the day after Benedict XVI announced his resignation? Was this pure coincidence? [9]

-  What actions, if any, were actually taken by John Podesta, Hillary Clinton, and others tied to the Obama administration who were involved in the discussion proposing the fomenting of a “Catholic Spring”?

- What was the purpose and nature of the secret meeting between Vice President Joseph Biden and Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican on or about June 3, 2011?

-   What roles were played by George Soros and other international financiers who may be currently residing in United States territory? [10]

We believe that the very existence of these unanswered questions provides sufficient evidence to warrant this request for an investigation.

Should such an investigation reveal that the U.S. government interfered inappropriately into the affairs of the Catholic Church, we further request the release of the results so that Catholics may request appropriate action from those elements of our hierarchy who remain loyal to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Please understand that we are not requesting an investigation into the Catholic Church; we are simply asking for an investigation into recent activities of the U.S. Government, of which you are now the chief executive.

Thank you again, and be assured of our most sincere prayers.

Respectfully,

Author & Philosopher: Vatican Gay Lobby forced Benedict's Resignation & Francis Reinstated Conspirators if Vigano is telling Truth

On August 27, author and philosopher Dr. Taylor Marshall on YouTube in "Dr. Taylor Marshall ties together Vatican financial scandal with homosexual activity" reported:

If Archbishop Carlo Marie Vigano is telling the truth then it appears that the Vatican gay lobby apparently forced Pope Benedict XVI's resignation and it appears that Pope Francis has "reinstated and promoted" all those who brought about the resignation.

Marshall stated:

"First of, Vigano blew the whistle on money laundering."

"Two, the accusations of money laundering leads to the Vatileaks scandal."

"Three, the Vatileaks scandal leads Benedict to form a secret investigation with three cardinals."

"Four, those three cardinals expose moral rot, sexual deviancy, that is paired up with financial irregularity."

"This is what moves the Pope to resignation. And just to make sure there is enough pressure on him to do it and do it quick something funny goes on with the Vatican Bank beginning on January 1, 2013."

"And it seems the powerful cardinals within Vatican City wanted it to happen fast because they don't want the 300 page dossier released to the public because there is moral scandal in those pages."

"That binder was left with Pope Francis, but nothing has been done. And what we see is that those who were oppose to Benedict XVI theologically, but also on administration, have been reinvolved, reinstated and promoted."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Gay Advocates Faggioli, Winters & Ivereigh are now Accomplices in Francis's McCarrick Cover-up as Vigano's Report Confirmed

The pro-gay Catholic media is now a accomplice in the Pope Francis cover-up of sex abuser ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick which the Vatican's former Apostlic Nuncio Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano's 11-page report revealed.

The pro-gay Catholic media "would [never] call "a bishop a 'terrorist' [',crude putsch' or a 'trafficker in conspiracy theories'] for sodomizing seminarians":

After dropping the bomb, the terrorist Viganò days: 'Silence and prayer are the only things that are befitting.'" 

Faggioli got this response:

"NubesPluantIustum @pluant Aug 26
One wonders if would ever call a bishop a 'terrorist' for sodomizing seminarians?"
[https://mobile.twitter.com/MassimoFaggioli/status/1033726167558352896 ]

- The pro-gay Austin Ivereigh said:

"Viganò is engaged in a "crude putsch" for 'Team Burke'."
    
- The notorious pro-gay Michael Sean Winters said:

"Viganò is the conservative Catholic Oliver Stone (!) - 'a trafficker in conspiracy theories who mixes fact, fiction and venom...'"
[http://mahoundsparadise.blogspot.com/2018/08/vatican-source-news-of-archbishop.html?m=1]

Gay advocates Faggioli, Winters and Ivereigh will now go down in Church history as accomplices in Francis's McCarrick sex abuse cover-up of possibly one of the most senior sinister Church sex abusers in history as the Archbishop Vigano's credible allegations are confirmed by reliable sources:

The Catholic News Agency (CNA) obtained a brief statement from Monsignor Jean-François Lantheaume, the former first counselor of the nunciature in Washington confirmed Vigano's report of Pope Francis's covered-up of sex abuser ex-Cardinal McCarrick:

“'Viganò said the truth. That’s all,' said Lantheaume, in a written response."
[Pope Refuses to Answer Questions on Viganò Accusations as Another Former Vatican Diplomat Confirms ReportBy Steve Skojec on Aug 27, 2018 ] 

Fr. Carlos Martins, a priest of the Archdiocese of Detroit, with a trusted Vatican Curia contact, also, confirmed Vigano's report of Francis's covered-up of sex abuser McCarrick on his Facebook page :
"I just spent the last two hours on the phone with a friend in the Vatican Curia. He said that the news of Archbishop Viganò has hit the Curia like an atomic bomb. Two things are universally noted regarding Viganò:"

"1) He is highly respected as a professional, and 2) His Curial positions gave him clear access to the damning information he reported. In other words, he is not a hack, and he is not relying on rumor. This makes his report absolutely worthy of belief.Viganò always had a reputation for being a combatant of internal Vatican corruption. In fact, during the Vatican leaks scandal, whistle-blowing reports that he authored were among the main documents that were leaked. This was an attempt by the persons he outed to pre-empt the report’s impact and suck the energy out of the attempt to investigate their claims. …"

"In the words of the Curial official I spoke with this afternoon, what Viganò has reported “makes the Borgia popes look like saints.” The feeling in the Curia right now is that the response of Viganò’s enemies will to try to discredit him personally, both because of the impeccability of Viganò’s character and the impossibility of his having interpreted the facts incorrectly. Their only hope will be to try to take energy away from the perversion and corruption that he uncovered. They will likely state that he is a bitter man who is seeking personal aggrandizement after having been exiled from Rome. When this occurs, don’t buy into it. Viganò is retired. He has nothing personally to gain from this." [Pope Refuses to Answer Questions on Viganò Accusations as Another Former Vatican Diplomat Confirms ReportBy Steve Skojec on Aug 27, 2018 ]

Pope Francis is almost Finished: What's Next?

Everyone knows the news that Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has single-handedly destroyed Pope Francis and his sex abuse cover-up and heretical legacy. The LifeSiteNews headline:

"Pope Francis covered up McCarrick abuse, former US nuncio"

The first thing everyone needs to do is get on their knees and thank God.

Next, know Francis and his inner circle especially Cardinal Pietro Parolin are like cornered animals and most likely are not going down without a fight.

The Vatican and the media are going to attack the credibility of Vigano using the word "claims" and ignore the evidence as they did the Four Cardinal's Dubia.

The difference is Francis's credibility is cracked like a defective dam. More truths will continue to come out until the corrupt dam falls apart.

You individual Catholics and the Band of Bloggers, if you have been saving your ammo, it is now time to shot every last bullet at these men who are like cornered animals.

Pray privately and in families, pray the rosary and pray at Mass that God finish off Francis and his inner circle especially Parolin and Cardinal Sean O'Malley who will be trying to continue the Francis train wreck by maneuvering to be the next pope.

Band of Bloggers hit Francis, his inner circle, O'Malley and Parolin with every last bullet you have. That is continue revealing the truth.

Know that if Francis refuses to resign or resigns then we have to pressure the cardinals to investigate the 2013 conclave to determine if he is a validly elected pope or a anti-pope. They, also, have to investigate if Pope Benedict XVI's resignation was valid. 

If the cardinals determine he is a validly elected pope and he refuses to resign we have to pressure them to depose him canonically.

The good news is that those who in my opinion control Francis, Parolin and his boss Cardinal Angelo Sodano, are both implicated by Vigano in the McCarrick cover-up.

Not only Sodano and Parolin need to be forced to resign, but every Francis appointed bishop, cardinal and ally including O'Malley must be forced to resign.

There are many ways to put pressure on the bishops and cardinals to act:

- The greatest pressure is by calling on God by prayer especially the rosary and offering Masses and Holy Communions for these intentions.

- Send priests, bishops and cardinals letters and emails.

- Make signs and pray in front of bishops offices and homes as we do in front of abortion clinics.

- Use your imagination to come up with other ideas.

Pray an Our Father now in thanksgiving, but keep praying, more than ever, for the restoration of the Church. There are still alot of battles before this war is over.

Pray an Our Father now for the hero Archbishop Vigano. I am pretty sure he knew he'd be crucified.

Pope Francis/Fr. Martin Language is "Nightmare of Manipulation and Misdirection" that is a Bridge to Hell

Pope Francis appointed Vatican consultant Fr. James Martin's bridge to hell becomes clear when you substitute the word pedophile for LGBT and his other gay activist language as quoted from his WMOF speech in the Catholic Herald:

- Headline: "Fr. James Martin critiques 'pedophilephobic' pastors at WMOF"

- "'[W]elcome pedophile persons'... into parish life."

- "Don't reduce pedophile people to the call to chastity."

-"The priest said those with 'pedophilephobic' pastors, 'either silently or overtly,' are 'out of luck.'"

-"[L]isten to pedophile parishioners;. 'trust that the Holy Spirit will guide them'... rather than 'simply repeating Church teachings without considering their [pedophile] lived experience."
(Catholic Herald, August 23, 2017)

Don't forget Church Militant's September 20, 2017 headline where we substitute pedophile for homosexual:

- "Father Martin: Pedophiles not Bound to Chastity"

The point is there is no reason under the sun not to justify pedophile behavior if one uses Martin and Francis language in justifing gay behavior in the Church.

There is no reason not to justify pedophile crimes using Francis/Martin-speak when one substitutes pedophile for gay:

- "Who am I to judge" pedophiles.

- "God made you like this" pedophiles.

- That is the "lived experience" of pedophiles.

- Pedophile "discrimination... should be avoided."

Here is one that even conservative Catholics were using in the earlier part of the McCarrick scandal:

"It is consensual" so it's not that big a deal and can be taken care of in the confessional.

What Fr. Z said of Martin applies to Francis and in the long run to pedophilia:

"[T]his is part of a larger, concerted effort to normalize sodomy, which is a sin that 'cries to heaven'... Martin's talk is a nightmare of manipulation and misdirection... they use 'lived experience' to justify whatever the hell they want."
(Fr.Z's Blog, "@JamesMartinSJ talk at #WMOF18," August 23, 2018)

The Francis/Martin language "is a nightmare of manipulation and misdirection" that is a bridge to hell.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Are Francis and his Gay Inner Circle Protecting Wuerl who Covered-up for "an Alleged Priest-run Child Porn Ring" and the Pro-Gay Bishops Network?

Why are Pope Francis and his gay inner circle protecting Cardinal Wuerl who covered-up "an alleged priest-run child porn ring"? (Washington Post, The con man in the cardinal's cap," August 22, 2018, by Hugh Hewitt)

The papal inner circle of Francis's "closest collaborators and confidants" includes Vatican Bank Msgr. Battista Ricca of the alleged "gay affairs" scandal who houses the Pope in his Vatican hotel, Vice-Pope Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga of the gay Honduras seminary scandal, C9 Cardinal Ezzati who is Francis's collaborator of the Chile gay Barros scandal and confidant Cardinal Coccopalmerio's secretary of the gay drug/orgy scandal which happened a few 100 yards away from where Francis lives in gay Ricca's hotel.

These are only some of the names.

According to Vatican expert Sandro Magister, Francis has a "number of homosexual priests in his [Vatican] inner circle of closest collaborators and confidants."(Magister's Chiesa.com, December 16, 2016)

Did Francis's gay inner circle write the phony strawman letter blaming "clericalism" and the"Church," but not any of the priests in the Pennsylvania sex abuse report, not any of Wuerl's pro-gay bishops cover-up network and not any of Francis's pro-gay Vatican cover-up inner circle?

In the Washington Post, Hugh Hewitt put it best:

"[H]is boss [Francis] in Rome wrote a pablum-filled letter [of]... 'everybody is to blame' mea non-culpa [Latin for "but not my fault"] from Pope Francis, his name is on it too. Wuerl needs to resign. And the church would be better off with two retired popes and a new man absolutely dedicated to supporting the reformers, not suppressing them."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Did Vatican II cause the McCarrick and Pope Francis Gay Sex Abuse Scandal?

The most hopeful statement in the pro-gay bishops network scandal has been when the ultimate "new springtime" of Vatican II Catholic Matthew Schmitz, senior editor at First Things, on August 16, in the Catholic Herald said:

"[T]he post-Vatican II settlement [of]... Upholding Catholic teaching on paper but not in reality has led to widespread corruption... has required a culture of lies... that allowed men like McCarrick to flourish... we must sweep it away."

Schmitz shows that most bishops, liberal and conservative, want to continue the "new springtime" of Vatican II and it's post-Vatican II settlement "that allowed men like McCarrick to flourish":

"[Conservative] Bishop Barron also cautioned against what he called an “ideological” response... those who raise concerns about Humanae Vitae, priestly celibacy, or “rampant homosexuality in the Church” may be... causing a 'distraction'."

"No one cares for the endless Catholic culture wars, but we should be wary of attempts to shut down frank discussion of how we got here. Bishop Barron’s list of taboo topics suggests that he – like most bishops – is keen to preserve the settlement of 1968."

"In that year, Pope Paul VI famously reaffirmed Catholic teaching on birth control in Humanae Vitae, but then declined to discipline the many bishops and priests who rejected that teaching. The result was an uneasy truce: the teaching was formally upheld, but obedience to it was not demanded."

"The same dynamic played out in 2005, when the Vatican decided that men with 'deep-seated homosexual tendencies' should be barred from the priesthood."

"... But for people in the pews, things don’t look so great. In 1955, nearly 75 per cent of American Catholics went weekly to Mass. Today, only 39 percent do. Outside of a few Latin Mass and “reform of the reform” enclaves, Mass-going Catholics suffer wrecked sanctuaries, botched liturgies and moral confusion. The springtime is hard to find."[http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/issues/aug-17th-2018/a-truce-that-cannot-hold/]

The taboo topic that all will not mention, but that the numbers above as well as the McCarrick and Pennsylvania scandals prove is that Vatican II is the cause of the "culture of lies... that allowed men like McCarrick to flourish."

The Amoris Laetitia-like Vatican II document Dignitatis Humanae on the Catholic state is what brought about the "[u]pholding Catholic teaching on paper but not in reality."

Traditionalists said it was a façade which was ambiguous and not defined teaching that would eventually have to be corrected.

Francis's Vatican Archbishop Guido Pozzo who was negotiating with Society of Pius X for the Pope agreed with the Traditionalists that it was not defined teaching.

Pozzo said that Dignitatis Humanae "is not about doctrine or definitive statements, but... pastoral practice." (Die Zeit, August 2016, Interview with Archbishop Guido Pozzo)

The greatest living American Thomist Edward Feser gives a brief summary of the history before and after Vatican II of the teaching on this subject and the ambiguity of the document:

"That depends.  In the Catholic context, the traditional teaching, vigorously and repeatedly upheld by the 19th century and pre-Vatican II 20th century popes, is that ideally Church and state ought to cooperate.  Contrary to an annoyingly common misunderstanding, these popes were not teaching that non-Catholics ought to be coerced by the state into becoming Catholics.  Nor were they teaching that non-Catholics should be forbidden from practicing their own religions in the privacy of their own homes, their own church buildings or synagogues, etc.  Rather, the issue was whether, in a country in which the vast majority of citizens were Catholic, non-Catholics ought to be permitted to proselytize and thereby possibly lead Catholics to abandon their faith.  It was not denied that there can be circumstances in which such proselytizing might be tolerated for the sake of civil order.  The question was whether non-Catholics have a strict right in justice to proselytize even in a majority Catholic society.  And the pre-Vatican II popes taught that they did not have such a right, and that in a Catholic country the state could in principle justly restrict such proselytizing (even if there are also cases where the state might not exercise its right to such restriction, if this would do more harm than good)."

"This was the teaching which Vatican II seemed to reverse, though the relevant document, Dignitatis Humanae, explicitly taught that it was “leav[ing] untouched traditional Catholic doctrine on the moral duty of men and societies toward the true religion and toward the one Church of Christ.”  Yet whether the principles set out in Dignitatis Humanae really can be reconciled with the principles set out by the pre-Vatican II popes, how exactly they are to be reconciled if they can be, and which principles are more authoritative and ought to be retained if they cannot be reconciled -- these have all been matters of controversy.  They are controversies most Catholics, including conservative Catholics, have avoided.  The reason, it seems to me, is that the older teaching is extremely unpopular in modern times, and thus whatever its current doctrinal status, most Catholics are happy to let it remain a dead letter and leave its precise relationship to Dignitatis Humanae unsettled.  Yet a question unanswered and ignored is still a real question, and there are scholars who have in different ways attempted to apply to this one a “hermeneutic of continuity,” including Thomas Storck, Fr. Brian Harrison, and Thomas Pink." 

One knows a Vatican II document is a disaster when a defender of Dignitatis Humanae (DR) like Fr. Brian Harrison says:

"The effect DR have been much more harmful than beneficial for the Church, the world and most important, the honor due to Christ the King . . . The form in which it presents its truth is so one-sided, so poorly explained, so perilously open to unorthodox interpretation, and so infected with the spirit of liberal humanism, that its promulgation has turned out to be a cause of rejoicing for the Church's worst enemies: freemasonry and all the other forces which seek to promote the ever more total secularization of society, the ever more complete exclusion of Our Lord Jesus Christ from His rightful sovereignty over the public life of nations, and confusion and division within the Church itself." [http://www.dailycatholic.org/issue/05Dec/dec14agg.htm]

Christopher Ferrara stated why Dignitatis Humanae brought about "[u]pholding Catholic teaching on paper but not in reality has led to widespread corruption... has required a culture of lies... that allowed men like McCarrick to flourish":

"There is no question that the Popes before Vatican II consistently condemned the modern notion of "religious liberty"-----i.e., that everyone in society must have the right, both privately and publicly, to practice, preach and otherwise manifest the doctrines of the religion of his choice, even if that religion is filled with error and immorality. That such a "right" attacks both public morality and the very foundation of Catholic social order (where it exists) hardly needs to be proved. There cannot, obviously, be any "right" as such publicly to deny the Divinity of Christ or to preach in favor of contraception, abortion, divorce [,homosexuality] and other evils. No one has the right to do or to say what is wrong. A right to commit wrong is utter nonsense. Stated negatively, a right not to be prevented by the State from committing wrong is equally nonsensical. The State might for prudential reasons, as St. Thomas observed, tolerate certain public errors and vices, but there is no question of any right to be tolerated in spreading them." [http://www.dailycatholic.org/issue/05Dec/dec14agg.htm]

Unfortunately, almost all conservatives such as Archbishop Charles Chaput thought Dignitatis Humanae was defined teaching and not a disaster.

Apparently, Chaput teaches that "error has no rights" in paper, but in reality error has rights if "persons... choose falsehood over truth." The Archbishop wrote:

"Error has no rights, but persons do have rights - even when they choose falsehood over truth... freedom of conscience, is - along with the right to life - the most important right any human being has." (First Things, "Of Human Dignity," March 18, 2015)

So did conservatives such as Chaput think that they on paper could teach that homosexuality was error, but in reality error had rights if "persons [such as the liberal McCarrick]... choose falsehood over truth... freedom of conscience"?

In fact, in 2001 when then President Bush met with Catholic leaders and his "'longtime friend' Cardinal McCarrick" who was there with him according to liberal Catholic Betty Clermont: "McCarrick; Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver." ("The Neo-Catholics," pages 154, 159)

What did Chaput know about McCarrick when he sat with him in that meeting?

Did he think McCarrick as a person had a right to freedom of conscience to falsehood over truth?

Does Chaput think that on paper that he can teach that homosexuality is a error but in reality error has rights if "persons [such as the liberal Fr. James Martin]... choose falsehood over truth... freedom of conscience"?

On March 31, 2017, LifeSiteNews in "Numerous 'gay' affirming parishes unopposed by bishops" reported that Chaput agrees with Martin when he "expressed concern about the use of 'intrinsically disordered'" which is a defined Catholic teaching on homosexuality.

Chaput, also, defends gay activist Fr. Martin who taught on YouTube that chastity is not required of homosexuals. (Church Militant, "Father Martin: Homosexuals not Bound to Chastity, "September 20, 2017)

It appears that the "conservative" Chaput is using Dignitatis Humanae to build a bridge to hell for homosexuals by claiming on paper that the error of homosexuality has no rights, but in reality error has rights if "persons [such as Martin and McCarrick] choose falsehood over truth."

Unfortunately, one of the main writers of Dignitatis Humanae was Pope John Paul II before he became pope. It appears that John Paul II when it came to the documented evidence of the sex abuse of a bishop taught that "error has no rights" in paper, but in reality error has rights if "persons... choose falsehood over truth":

"In 1996, Kunz became a canon law adviser to the Roman Catholic Faithful (RCF), an Illinois-based group investigating the sexual abuse of boys by Catholic priests and bishops. Kunz was recommended to RCF by the Rev. John A. Hardon, SJ, a widely respected theologian and author who worked for several popes and had deep connections at the Vatican. The group was gathering information on Bishop Daniel L. Ryan of the Diocese of Springfield, Ill. Ryan was accused of sexually assaulting a mentally disabled man, soliciting sex from a 15-year-old boy, trolling area parks for teenage male prostitutes, and having sex with priests in his diocese. In sworn testimony to RCF investigators, one of the teen prostitutes said Ryan once heard his confession and blessed him, then told him, “go and sin no more.” Then the bishop winked at the teen and said, 'See you later.'”

"With help from Kunz and Father Fiore, RCF developed a dossier on the situation in the Springfield diocese. Father Hardon carried the report to Rome and presented it to Pope St. John Paul II, vouching for RCF and the accuracy of the document. Nothing was done with the explosive information. Hardon told RCF officials that at least a dozen American bishops supported Ryan in his quest to hold onto his bishopric in Springfield, according to RCF president and founder Stephen G. Brady. One of them was the late Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, then archbishop of Chicago, Brady said. When the group approached Bernardin for help in removing Ryan, he refused, Brady said. Ryan abruptly retired in October 1999, shortly before a lawsuit was filed accusing him of covering up the sexual abuse of a child by another Illinois priest. Sheriff Mahoney said Dane County investigators interviewed Ryan, but have no indication he is linked to the Kunz homicide. Ryan died in December 2015."

“Father Hardon told me to go to Kunz if I needed any contacts anywhere or needed direction in my investigations,” Brady told Catholic World Report. 'Father Kunz never discussed any other investigations with me except my own. He was tight lipped and you could trust him 100 percent. He had my files and answered any questions I had. He did work behind the scenes for me but kept it private.'”
"Brady said during the 14 years that RCF conducted its investigations, he received three death threats. One was serious enough to involve the FBI. An email circulated claiming a contract was out for Brady’s assassination. After Kunz was murdered, Brady bought a bulletproof vest." [https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2018/08/08/the-unsolved-murder-of-fr-alfred-kunz/]

Francis, as did John Paul II, thinks Dignitatis Humanae is a central document governing the Church after Vatican II. Francis appears to read the document even more radically than Chaput or John Paul which doesn't even attempt the so-called "hermeneutics of continuity." The present Pope said:

[A] secular state... is better than a confessional [Catholic] state, because confessional states always finish badly." (Catholic World Report, "The end of the Catholic state?," February 20, 2017)

The present top defender of Dignitatis Humanae, the ambiguous Francis, may with all liberal Catholics think "error has rights," but, on the other hand, he may agree with Chaput that "error has no rights" in paper, but in reality error has rights if "persons... choose falsehood over truth." 

Unfortunately, either way the result is the same when it comes to the gay sex abuse scandal:

It appears that if the sodomy scandal of McCarrick had been under then Cardinal Bergoglio in Argentina in 2005 when his sex scandal was finally fully publicly exposed he might have been given a letter of "gratitude" for his work for the poor.

The Catholic Argentinian website the Wanderer on October 23, 2014 posted "Unmasking Bergoglio":

"Bergoglio always had the "gay agenda" among his plans... It is a question of asking the Buenoairean clergy about the constant protection that he lavished on many homosexual priests."

"... Cardinal Bergoglio as Primate... of the Argentine Episcopal Conference... "[had a] "star"... of the Argentine Episcopate. The great theologian... of the poor [Archbishop Juan Carlos Maccarone]."

"Until... in March 2005 a video appeared in which the archbishop appeared having sexual games with a young man... Pope Benedict XVI... immediately removed [him from his]... position [as bishop]."

"The reaction of Bergoglio"

"By a letter that Maccarone himself directed in [to] his bother bishops, it can be easily deduced that the entire Argentine episcopal gang knew of his weakness... And, in spite of that, they promoted him to the episcopal office."

"... Bergoglio... issued a statement in which he expressed his 'gratitude' to the former bishop [Maccarone]."

"... The spokesman of the arzobipado porteno went out to say... the [sex] video corresponded to "the private life of Bishop Maccarone."

Jimmy Burns in his book "Francis, Pope of Good Promise" after referencing that "Maccarone resigned" because of the "videotape showing the bishop having 'intimate relations'" wrote:

"Bergoglio's own spokesman, rather than focus on Maccarone's political links with Kirchner, jumped to the bishop's defense claiming he had been set up."

"... Fortunato Millimaci, a Buenos Aires sociologist [said]... 'This means that the idea of the Catholic Church as a moral reference of a Catholic nation is very strongly in doubt... It shows that a double standard exists within the Church [of Bergoglio] itself.'" (Pages 231-232)

Chiesa, December 16, 2016:

Vatican expert Sandro Magister said Francis has a "number of homosexual priests in the inner circle of his closest collaborators and confidants."

Caucus99percent.com, 02/02/2018:

"Pope Francis' continuous aiding and abetting of sexual predators and his officials who protect them."

"Although he was personally informed of the accusations against them, Pope Francis protected these sexual predators: Fr. Mauro Inzoli (the pope later defrocked Inzoli but he is still a free man) Luis Fernando Figari, Archbishop Anthony Apuron, Auxiliary Bishop Gabino Miranda Melgarejo, Fr. Don Corradi and Archbishop Josef Wesolowski."

"After Pope Francis did nothing to stop Corradi, the priest and four others were arrested in November 2016 and charged with raping and molesting at least 22 children. More reports poured in and 'it’s now thought that as many as 60 children fell victim to abuse.'”

"Wesolowski was put under Vatican house arrest 14 months after the pope judged him to be guilty only after 'there was a serious risk that [he] would be arrested on Italian territory at the request of the Dominican Republic authorities and then extradited,' as reported by Corriere della Sera. The archbishop was found with more than 100,000 computer files of child pornography, a “key ingredient” in sex trafficking. Wesolowski continued to possess child pornography even under Vatican house arrest."

"Kamil Jarzembowski, a former student at the Vatican’s preseminary, wrote a letter about the sexual abuse of minors in the school and handed it directly to Pope Francis. The pope did nothing to stop it."

"Pope Francis had ordered an investigation of Honduran Bishop Juan José Pineda by an Argentine bishop who was “shocked” by “accounts of sexual abuse perpetrated against priests and seminarians …. So far the only action that has been taken has been to send Bishop Pineda to stay with Jesuits in Madrid on a short retreat,” wrote veteran Vatican reporter Edward Pentin."

"Pope Francis promoted Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican department that judges cases of clergy sexual abuse. While Ladaria held the second highest position in the CDF, he found Fr. Gianni Trotta guilty of sexually abusing minors in 2012 but failed to inform the Italian authorities. Trotta, already convicted of sexual violence against an 11-year-old and sentenced to eight years in prison by a civil court, is now standing trial for nine other alleged cases of sex abuse against boys that occurred in 2014. Ladaria, himself, will stand trial in April, accused by French authorities of “complicity in the alleged cover-up” of Fr. Bernard Preynat."

"A month after his election, the pope appointed a Council of Cardinals to help him govern the Church. Three of the eight initial members had protected pedophile priests: George Pell, Francisco Javier Errázuriz Ossa, and Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga who he named as head of the council."

"Pope Francis promoted to cardinal Archbishops Gerhard Ludwig Müller and Ricardo Ezzati who had covered up for pedophile priests."

"Pope Francis has taken no action against any of the 14 other bishops accused of complicity with abusive priests. A recent investigation in France exposed five additional pedophile-protecting bishops still in office."

"(Pope Francis has no problem taking action against people for reasons other than sex abuse. He removed Cardinals Gerhard Müller and Raymond Burke from their Vatican positions. He removed Fra’ Matthew Festing as Grand Master of the Knights of Malta, a position equal in status to cardinal in the Catholic Church. He removed the “Bishop of Bling.” He ordered that three priests be fired from the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith without explanation. Giulio Mattietti, deputy director of the Vatican Bank, was fired with no reason given.  Although religious orders usually select their own superiors, the pope dismissed the head of the Order of the Franciscans of Immaculata. Pope Francis excommunicated Fr. Greg Reynolds for advocating for women’s ordination. He excommunicated Martha Heizer, head of the reform international movement We Are Church, and her husband, Gert Heizer, for celebrating Mass in their home with a small group of friends.)"

"...Criticism of the pope has been limited to admitting that child sex abuse is merely a 'blindspot.'”

"It was the same when, this past June 29, Cardinal George Pell was charged with “historic sexual abuse” and left for his native Australia. Pope Francis’ first 'reform' of the Vatican had been to create a Secretariat for (his) Economy, and give Pell 'authority over all economic and administrative activities within the Holy See and the Vatican City State.'”

“Yes, some coverage has been more critical of late, especially Francis’s handling of the sexual abuse scandals in the wake of the criminal indictment of one of his top aides, Cardinal George Pell, in Australia. Even then the tone tends to be, ‘Francis is such a great guy, so why is this area lagging behind?’ observed the experienced Catholic reporter, John L. Allen Jr."

"It was reported with little, if any, criticism of Pope Francis by the mainstream American media."

"... Again, when Pope Francis gave Cardinal Bernard Law a benediction at Law’s Dec. 21 funeral mass, there was little, if any, criticism. The Boston cardinal had been forced to resign after he had reassigned and covered-up for rape and sexual assaults of children by scores of priests for years without informing the public or the police."

"Unfortunately for the world’s children, the U.S. mainstream media did not report that 'There are still bishops who have chosen to protect the Church and their priests more than children" who ‘make Law look like an amateur,as declared by Fr. Thomas Doyle, a well-known author and victims’ advocate for over three decades." [https://caucus99percent.com/content/us-media-pope-aiding-and-abetting-torture-moral-leader]

As Schmitz  said:

"[T]he post-Vatican II settlement [of]... Upholding Catholic teaching on paper but not in reality has led to widespread corruption... has required a culture of lies... that allowed men like McCarrick to flourish... we must sweep it away."

 Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
