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.

Godfried Danneels (85), Another Catholic Cardinal Implicated In Child Sex Crimes, Dies.

by Anura Guruge

Theodore McCarrick has to resign his cardinalate and is later defrocked on February 16, 2019.

George Pell is languishing in prison as of February 28, 2019.

And now Godfried Danneels dies.

Slowly, but surely, cardinals heavily implicated in child sex abuse crimes are ‘going away’ permitting the Church to be cleansed — if that is ever going to be possible.

Godfried used to be a good apple. He sacrificed his credibility and reputation to minimize the, inexcusable, crime of child sex abuse. I used to like him. But, that was before his true colors — black as they were — came to light.

As far as I am concerned he can no longer cause more harm.

I somehow doubt that he would make it to heaven because that would be a travesty.

Cardinal George Pell Is Actually In A Prison Cell Now — NOT On Bail.

by Anura Guruge

This full-length, 1-hour 8-minute sentencing hearing is worth watching
or, at a minimum, dipping into to get a flavor of the proceedings.


There was some confusion on this yesterday during his sentencing hearing; i.e., whether he would be allowed out, a free man, until his June 2019 appeal hearing. I made sure to double check,

He is in a prison cell. Has been for 15-days now. Two-weeks prior to yesterday’s sentencing hearing. So, he is no longer prancing around, cock-a-hoop. But, there is a chance that he might be able to wriggle free in June after his appeal hearing.

Right now he is on the permanent sex offenders list. Not sure what will happen IF he is acquitted on his appeal.

So, the pope now has the issue of one of his cardinals, an elector no less (i.e., under-80), is actually in a prison — and it is not Castel Sant’Angelo (the Vatican prison in the old days).

Maybe the pope is waiting for June, praying desperately and hoping for a miracle.

But, for now, Cardinal George Pell is actually in prison.

He probably is in isolation. I have to imagine that some red-blooded Australians, in prison, would want to have a word or two with him about his child abuse. Even hardened criminals don’t take kindly to this crime.

George Pell Will Not Be The First Cardinal To Be Imprisoned; But He Will Be First For Sodomy.

by Anura Guruge


This from ‘The Washington Post’. Google for more …


Click image for my December 2018 post.


Cardinals going to prison is nothing new.

During the Middle Ages various imperial powers, or in some instances disgruntled popes, would imprison cardinals that they took a dislike to — often to prevent them voting at conclaves.

Then during the last century we had political imprisonments — mainly by communist countries. One well know example was Chinese Cardinal Ignatius Kung who was imprisoned for over 30-years for dissent. He remained a cardinal throughout.

Then there was also Hungarian Cardinal József Mindszenty. He too spent 8-years in prison — yet again he remained a cardinal throughout.

But, things are different with the dirty old bugger, George Pell. What he has been convicted of is that of sodomizing a child!

He will be the first cardinal to be imprisoned for sodomy.

The mind boggles as to what kind of reception he will receive in an Australian prison. I doubt that Australian prisoners take too kindly to old men who sodomize kids.

He most likely will be forced to resign his cardinalate. He will be the 2nd to do so, after Theodore McCarrick, since 1927.

No cardinalate resignations for 90-years, then 2 in one-year!

Does Pope Francis Have Dark Secret Of His OWN When It Comes To Sex Crimes?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From the U.K. “The Guardian”. Google for more.


The pope doth protest too much, methinks.

He is beginning to act & sound like a man who has a dark secret to hide.

He is very much like Trump and the Robert Muller special investigation.

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?

Pope Francis’ Letter To The U.S. Bishops Re. Sex Crime Crisis Is Trumpian In Its Hypocrisy.

by Anura Guruge


For the original “New York Times” article … click here.


Click to ENLARGE.


This pope, the worst, by far, in over 70-years appears so much to be like Trump. It would appear he hero worships Trump. What Putin is to Trump, Trump is to this deeply flawed Pope.

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.

by Anura Guruge


For the original BBC article … click here.


Click to ENLARGE.


 


He is such a CLOWN … among other things, and most are NOT good.

Yes, of course, his message is good. But, charity, as always, starts at home. You get rid of your possessions at the Vatican and I will follow your lead.

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.
