Skip to comments.[Catholic Caucus] How the Pope’s Man in Washington Is Protecting Monsignor Rossi

The other day I saw a recent photo pop up on Twitter of Monsignor Walter Rossi standing next to a group of friends and allies Donald Wuerl (the disgraced former archbishop of Washington, D.C.), Callista and Newt Gingrich, and Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the popes representative in the United States. The last figure interested me the most: Why would the popes man in Washington be lending his prestige to a cleric under investigation for corruption by the archdiocese of Washington, D.C., and the diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania? Wouldnt he want to steer clear of him?
It appears the answer lies in this pontificates penchant for riding to the rescue of many corrupt clerics. Rossi, who heads up the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., has enjoyed the patronage of Pierre since the Rossi scandal broke last year. I have been told by insiders in Washington, D.C., that my articles on Rossi precipitated the initial investigation of his misconduct an investigation one observer described as an utter sham. Rossi allies around Wuerl just hastily interviewed a few of Rossis subordinates at the Shrine, who of course said only positive things about him. They didnt interview anybody who wasnt dependent on Rossi for their salary. The investigation was a joke, he said.

Bad times in the Catholic Church. The hierarchy is inundated with vile homosexuals who are blatant and evil.
Francis is a Communist.
