Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops writes open letter to whistleblower
The Vaticans prefect for the Congregation for Bishops released a letter Sunday morning refuting charges Pope Francis lifted sanctions against former cardinal Theodore McCarrick, and saying that charges made by a former Vatican ambassador are an unjustified attack on the pope cannot come from the Spirit of God.
Your current position seems to me incomprehensible and extremely reprehensible, not only because of the confusion that sows in the people of God, but because your public accusations seriously damage the reputation of the Successors of the Apostles, wrote Cardinal Marc Ouellett, in an Oct. 7 letter addressed to Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano.
I tell you frankly that to accuse Pope Francis of having covered with full knowledge of the facts this alleged sexual predator and therefore of being an accomplice of the corruption that is spreading in the Church, to the point of considering him unworthy of continuing his reform as the first pastor of the Church, is incredible and unlikely from all points of view, Ouellett added.
The letter, released by the Vatican press office, was written in response to two letters from Vigano, the former Vatican ambassador to the U.S., which charged that the Vatican had ignored reports from him and others about sexual immorality on the part of McCarrick for several years, until Pope Benedict XVI imposed sanctions on McCarricks ministry in 2009 or 2010.
Vigano alleged that Pope Francis lifted the restrictions on McCarricks ministry after his election to the papacy, and that McCarrick became an adviser to the pope. He then called for the pope to resign.
He also suggested that Cardinal Marc Ouellet, prefect of the Vaticans Congregation for Bishops, had direct knowledge of the history of allegations and responses in McCarricks case, and urged......

The vile homosexuals will never willingly or gracefully release the grip they have on the Catholic Church. Americans have just witness an example of overt character assassination. These predatory perverts will without hesitation destroy the reputation, life and career of any decent person who courageously opposed their evil deeds. The homosexuals dream of changing Church doctrine and teaching to accommodate their putrid actions and beliefs. Pope Francis is their champion and protector.
..............now God loves buggery.................
Vigano is in excellent company.
More non-refuting refutations. Going after the audacity of his actions instead of the veracity of his claims. When do innocent people who have the evidence in their possession take this tactic?
Its sad and transparent.
St. Peter Damian from his Book of Gomorrah, written over a 1000 years ago.
Without fail, [the vice of sodomy] brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust.
[The vice of sodomy] leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind . . . It opens up Hell and closes the gates of Paradise.
[The vice of sodomy] is this vice that violates temperance, slays modesty, strangles chastity, and slaughters virginity.
[The vice of sodomy] defiles all things, sullies all things, pollutes all things.
Who will make a mistress of a cleric, or a woman of a man?
It is not sinners, but the wicked who should despair; it is not the magnitude of ones crime, but contempt of God that dashes ones hopes.
Actually, cardinal omelet inadvertently supports Archbishop Vigano’s testimony in part, by confirming that mccarrick had been told to live discreetly because of rumors about his lifestyle. He also says asks why bergoglio would take any notice of him at the beginning of his pontificate, since he was retired, and had no responsibilities in the Church at the time, thus confirming that Pope Benedict XVI had put him out to pasture. The cardinal denies formal sanctions, but that’s a strawman at this point. So from omelet’s testimony, we know two things:
1. mccarrick had been told to live a discreet life due to rumors about his immoral lifestyle;
2. mccarrick had been put out to pasture by Benedict.
We also know a third, as it is observable fact:
3. bergoglio reversed the actions of Pope Benedict XVI.
What is not yet in evidence is whether bergoglio knew why Pope Benedict had acted thusly.
If he truly did not know, he was badly served by his cardinals. But I find it difficult to believe, because, as Bishop Lopes says, “Everyone knew.”
I’d like to buy a vowel please.
Even Benedict has admitted that he put certain restrictions on McCarrick, but couldn’t remember what exactly they were.
The Church civil war just got hotter.
Took Ouellett a while to issue a denial, didn’t it?
ANY Catholic clergy, bishop, cardinal, or pope who denies they knew about the evil sodomite leadership in the Church is a damned liar.
they = he
