Let’s HOPE That Stabbing Of 77-Year Old Catholic Priest, In Montreal, Was Random, & UNRELATED To Child Sex Crimes.
This is not good. Any violence is bad, but attacks on priests and worshippers (as in New Zealand) seems even more egregious.
I really am hoping that this was a random attack with no real motive behind it.
But, I fret. The attacker is a 26-year old man. That worries me. Was he a victim of Catholic clergy sex crimes?
I know that there is a huge amount of frustration and resentment. The stupid pope just doesn’t get it. People are fed up. They have waited decades for justice and stupid Francis keeps on thumbing his nose at them — even as recently as last week.
What next? Armed guards at Catholic churches? Not good.
The stupid pope, Francis, really needs to do something meaningful to show that the Church cares.
Last weekend we had a local 11-year old shooting dead his adoptive parents. Now this. And prior to that New Zealand. It is all very sad. Violence based on religion drives me to despair! Why?
I really, really wish that this stupid pope will resign.
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 evil Pope Francis, the diabolical Vatican and shameless, reprobate Wuerl FOOLED YOU again!
Bloody Wurel HAD to bloody resign. He is 77-years old. Resignation age for Archbishops/Bishops — per Canon Law — is 75!
For Christ’s sake do NOT let them hoodwink YOU. Treat you as if you are stupid. The Catholic Church has done that for so long — like 2,000-years — that it is convinced that they can get away with anything and everything — including CRIMES AGAINST INNOCENT KIDS.
Screw the Church.

In the Catholic Church Bishops & Archbishops HAVE TO TENDER their resignation, to the pope, when they turn 75. That is Canon Law. The pope has to accept the resignation.
These resignations are mandatory.
Nothing to do with DISCIPLINE or CENSURE.
Just plain old retirement upon turning 75.
DO NOT LET THE CHURCH FOOL YOU.
They think you are gullible and stupid. Do not make them make you a fool.
When it comes to cardinals who are still active Archbishops, as is the case with disgraceful Donald William Wuerl (b. Nov. 12, 1940), there are two types of resignations.
All Archbishops, due to age, must resign. That is Canon Law. When an Archbishop turns 75, as Wuerl did in November 2015, he has NO CHOICE but to submit a letter of resignation to the Pope. That is a given. You can’t get around that. When the pope accepts the resignation is up to the pope.
In the case of Wuerl, the pope, inexplicably, has sat on the letter for 3-years. He, however, can’t sit on it forever. Archbishops have to be out of office by the time they turn 80.
So, if you hear that the pope has accepted Wuerl’s resignation DO NOT get excited until you determine what he resigned.
If it was only his Archbishopric that would be meaningless. He had to resign because of age. It is called retirement.
What he must resign, as did his predecessor, the groping Theodore Edgar McCarrick is his Cardinalate.
Two very different resignations — one totally meaningless.
Pope Francis, on Sunday, August 26, 2018, said, in reference to Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s explosive allegations and calls for his resignation told reporters: “testimony speaks for itself”.
Well, IF you are interested in reading the entire testimony, in its original form, I have it for you. Just click to download it.

Alas Archbishop (Retired) Carlo Maria Viganò has ‘A HISTORY’
which puts his credibility on the line.
This is pretty dramatic and unprecedented!
Asking a pope to resign is not a common practice — especially since Pope’s did not typically resign or retire, for whatever reason, until Benedict XVI did so in February 2013, out of the blue. So, asking for a pope to resign didn’t carry any weight prior to that because it was something pope’s didn’t do.
When popes were asked to resign, i.e., abdicate, which was fairly common long time ago it was usually done by an Emperor, a synod, a Council or another pope!
So, for an archbishop to gpo public with this is HUGE. The pope could excommunicate him. I don’t think the pope can do much more — legally.
The problem, here, alas, is that Carlo Maria Viganò now has a history of accusing popes and others of corruption. He figured MAJORLY in Vatileaks. He is a known troublemaker and has already been ‘punished’ (i.e., demoted etc.)
But, this is good.
More people should ask for the pope to resign.
Now if it came from a cardinal we really could have some fireworks.
P.S., I do believe that Benedict XVI retired because he knew that the Clerical Child Abuse Crimes were going to come around to BITE HIM.
