The MSM and catholic media are running their feet off carrying water for the homosexual mafia, the “gay lobby” as it is called in Italian with borrow words. The general lines of attack against The Viganò Testimony and the support that it has received are predictable.
First, they attack Viganò’s character. That backfires a bit. I saw a hilarious tweet from the liberal LCWR type nun – who gossiped back to Beans – that, in a talk, Viganò tried to divide them rather than bring them into unity – which is really an admission that they were already divided before he got there.
Also, they repeat – mantra like – that this is all about homophobia and getting even.
B as in B. S as in S.
Normal people see what is going on.
Fishwrap has a story (above other stories about the sun rising in the East and water being found to be wet) today which blats that:
US cardinals reject Vatican diplomat’s claims of widespread cover-up of abuse
Which Cardnials? Let’s guess. Could they be Cardinals Wuerl, Tobin and Cupich?
On always objective NBC Card. Cupich proclaimed that Francis has better things to do.
‘The Pope Has a Bigger Agenda“: Cardinal Cupich
Cardinal Blase Cupich speaks to NBC 5’s Mary Ann Ahern about the explosive allegations of a former high-ranking church official who claims the Pope knew about charges of sexual misconduct against an American cardinal and says that cardinal was responsible for Cupich’s appointment in Chicago. “The Pope has a bigger agenda,” Cardinal Cupich said. “He’s got to get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the church. We’re not going to go down a rabbit hole on this.”
So, a global scandal about a homosexual network and the global cover up of clerical abuse – scandals which, by the way – are rocking the faithful to their bones – are not really a big deal. No no… it’s global warming. Global warming was caused by clericalism, after all!
The story also cites those bishop who are opening to believing Viganò’s claims.
Here’s a good one.
At La Stampa, Andrea “Wormtongue” Tornielli has gone so far as the insist that McCarrick’s sex plaything were of legal age, that he didn’t coerce them and that, therefore its the fault of… wait for it… clericalism.
It is worth remembering: no one has ever spoken, let alone denounced, about child abuse. [Except those who did.] We are talking about harassment of people of full age, which – given that it is the bishop who invites his seminarians or priests to bed, are actually an abuse. There is no such thing as a situation of equality, before it being a sexual abuse, it is an abuse of clerical power. Although no one has ever said that to invite seminarians close to the priesthood and young priests to sleep with him, “Uncle Ted? (as McCarrick called himself) used forms of violence or threats.
No no… nothing queer about what was going on. It’s clericalism. THAT’s the problem!
In all of this, it seems to me, facts remain stubborn.
First, contrary to the efforts of the MSM and catholic media, Viganò has clarified with documents what happened about his alleged effort to slow or stop the Neinstedt situation. HERE
As Bp. Morlino pointed out, and as even Fishwrap had to admit, putting aside questions raised about Viganò’s person:
Viganò has offered a number of concrete, real allegations … Thus, the criteria for credible allegations are more than fulfilled, and an investigation, according to proper canonical procedures, is certainly in order.
