Pope Francis, Re. Cardinal Barbarin, PROVES He Is On The Side Of The Child Sex Abusers, And NOT The Victims.
This beyond the bloody pale.
The aptly-named Barbarin is already convicted by a french court and wanted to resign — albeit just is not-that-important archbishopric rather than the musch prestigious cardinalate.
Barbarin, at this late stage, was at least trying to make a gesture.
But, NOT the bloody pope. Oh, NO. The pope doesn’t like that. He cares nothing about the poor victims.
What Trump is to White Nationalists,
Pope Francis is to Child Sex Abusers.
I am so disgusted with him. He promised so much BUT did a 180 on the CRITICAL child sex abuse issue.
Worst pope in 61-years.
Also not getting ‘Cardinal’ George Pell, languishing in an Australian prison cell, to relinquish his cardinalate. Pope remains silent.
Francis is a disgrace to Christianity.
The pope doth protest too much, methinks.
He is beginning to act & sound like a man who has a dark secret to hide.
Francis repeatedly attacks those like us who are genuinely upset about all of the sex abuse that has gone on and continues to go in in the Catholic Church by clergy that is supposed to have a duty to protect the young and the innocent if nobody else.
He is an hypocrite and a shallow man. I am getting increasingly convinced that he has a very dark, sinister past.
There is no vetting to be pope. Plus as we know the prelates protect each other. So, if Francis has a dark past he has a good chance of being able to keep it hidden because like Trump he has most of the prelates intimidated.
So, I ask out LOUD: why doth Francis protest so much? What does he have to hide?

Like Trump he has no real grasp of the office or what is expected of him. Like Trump all he craves for is attention, attention, attention.
This 3,600-word letter to the U.S. Bishops on the horrendous issue of child sex crimes is a masterclass in deflection and hypocrisy. He takes no blame for his or his predecessors active involvement in the crimes. The popes were complicit and this pope has been openly accused of it. But, he only blames the U.S. Bishops — and to be fair there is plenty to blame there.
This pope is a disgrace. The Trump at the Vatican. Like Trump he has to be held accountable for his actions BUT unlike Trump there is no Robert Swan Mueller III or a Nancy Pelosi. Shame.
Pope Francis, From The Insane Opulence Of The Vatican, Again Has The Audacity To Condemn Materialism.

He is such a CLOWN … among other things, and most are NOT good.
It is no good trying to claim that he, as pope, leads a simple life. It is all relative. He is surrounded by opulence. As pope he can get rid of some of the Vatican’s insane wealth and set an example to the world.
The Vatican’s wealth is incalculable. The Vatican could afford to give away billions a year in charity. Just sell a few paintings a year.
Oh, NO. Everything at the Vatican is sacred. Cannot be parted with — BUT I need to get rid of what little I have.
You are such a CLOWN Francis.

I said it before …
Francis, the BAD POPE, calling upon abusive priests to turn themselves in is so, so hypocritical.
Francis has, of late, been the Chief Cover-Upper of clerical sex crimes. He has done everything he can to prevent the guilty from being brought to justice. He is now the BIGGEST culprit of them all.
He is such a fraud. He really makes Donald Trump look like a Saint.
He lies, cheats and uses the media to dupe his extremely gullible base — and I am talking about Francis.
This is laughable if it wasn’t so sad.
Francis answers to no one and of late I think he thinks that he is not even accountable to God.
A terrible pope. The worst pope since Pius XII. Will go down in history as another pope than brough infamy to the papacy.
Search ‘pope’ or ‘cardinal’.

Has it ever occured to you that the “lead us not into temptation” line in the Lord’s Prayer sounds incongruous?
It is telling the Lord not to lead you into temptation! Yes, Ah!
Why would the Lord want to lead you into temptation?
But, that is basically what that line is saying.
“Please Lord, do NOT lead me into temptation“.
Pope Francis quite rightly thinks it just doesn’t sound right.
But, he is NOT going to change the Lord’s Prayer.
I repeat, he is NOT going to change the Lord’s Prayer.
He could, if he wanted, BUT he is NOT going to do it for now.
He just wants you to THINK about it. And I always like folks that ask others to THINK about something worthwhile.
The French have changed their translation to take out the ‘lead’. The pope likes that. So, do I.
It has all to do with translations.
The English and French versions have come about through a tortured course of translations over 1,600 years. From Aramaic/Hebrew to Greek … to Latin … to colloquial Latin (i.e., Vulgate) … English/French.
It was during this process that the ‘lead us’ came about.
So, NOW you know the real story.
As the NPR article points out there is an Australian court gag order preventing details of this HUGE case from being divulged at present.
But, it appears that he has been convicted — though he has already appealed it. Hence, the secrecy.
If the conviction holds this will be pivotal. This is NOT about cover-up. This is about actual, hands-on sexual abuse.
Once a papabile (i.e., a pope contender).
Confidante of Pope Francis.
This will be HUGE.
