The Pope says Vatican Whistle-Blower Satanic! By Peter West
With sexual abuse allegations just about everywhere, one would have thought that the Pope would be keeping quiet, waiting, drinking good wine, eating rich high cholesterol food, and listening to … well maybe some hot Latin dance tracks. Like Despacito now with 5.5 BILLION YouTube views. I do not want to risk a heart attack even watching it. But, I digress. The Pope is so cheesed off at the Vatican whistle-blower that he has called him, in his own way, “satanic”:
“Satan, the “Great Accuser,” has been unleashed against the bishops of the Church, Pope Francis said Tuesday, in a thinly veiled reference to the former Vatican nuncio to the United States. The former nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, recently accused a number of prelates of dereliction of duty in dealing with clerical sex abuse and claimed that the pope had rehabilitated serial abuser Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, elevating him to a position of influence despite knowledge of his misdeeds. In an 11-page testimony published on August 25, Viganò alleged that he had personally informed Pope Francis in 2013 of the serial homosexual abuse perpetrated by Cardinal McCarrick, along with sanctions imposed on his ministry by Pope Benedict XVI, and yet the pope lifted those sanctions and involved McCarrick in the naming of future bishops.
“The Great Accuser, as he himself tells God in the first chapter of the Book of Job, roams around the earth looking for someone to accuse,” Francis said in his morning homily at Mass in the chapel of the Santa Marta residence in the Vatican. In these times “it seems that the Great Accuser has been unleashed and has it in for the bishops,” the pope said. “It is true, we are all sinners, we bishops,” he said, but the Great Accuser “seeks to unveil sins so that they may be seen, to scandalize the people.”
Well, the accusations are either true, or they are not, and the easiest way of dealing with “satan” as defined, is to refute the allegations. “I won’t say a word about this,” is what criminals say when dealing with the police, “taking the Fifth.”
