The Pope faced the one call he never thought he would receive

Pope Francis’ time as leader of the Catholic Church is filled with controversy.

The liberal Pontiff crossed conservatives on a number of issues.

But now he is facing the one crisis that could spell the end.

The scandal surrounding Cardinal Theodore McCarrick abusing young boys for decades continues to grow.

Reports surfaced that Pope Francis knew about McCarrick’s abuse and looked the other way.

That is leading to figures inside and outside the Church calling for Francis to resign.

Breitbart reports:

A growing number of American Catholics are calling for an investigation into the allegations that Pope Francis ignored Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s record of sexually abusing priests, seminarians, and laypeople, including minors. Some Catholics are even calling for the pope to resign.

The calls from Catholic bishops, organizations, and media outlets for Pope Francis to be investigated and/or resign have come after the former Vatican ambassador to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, released an 11-page affidavit Saturday alleging that Pope Francis turned a blind eye to McCarrick’s behavior.

Viganò’s affidavit specifically claimed that Pope Francis lifted Pope Benedict’s “canonical sanctions” on the disgraced cardinal imposed between 2009-2010 that forbade him from interacting with the public in an official capacity, and Viganò alleged Francis did this despite knowing of the serious allegations against McCarrick.

Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), released a statement Sunday calling for an impartial investigation into the allegations against Pope Francis.

Francis has not presented evidence or testimony disputing Viganò’s accusations.

That is leading many Catholics to agree with the calls for an impartial and thorough investigation into this matter.

The Pope possibly covering up the sexual abuse of young boys has the potential to devastate the Catholic Church around the world.

Catholics are owed answers and accountability.

  1. I am a Catholic but never trusted Pope Francisco…….a Pope shall be just that…..
    a Pope………not a politician……What a huge difference between John Paul II and
    the “pink” Francisco.

  2. Why do you sensor us? why can’t you be fair and stop the Liberal bias? Remember what goes around comes around. Whoever is not printing my comments, maybe something bad will happen to you or your family, what do you think?

    • Your a demon. How dare you make a statement like that. With no evidence. Your like George Soros who called President Trump HITLER when he began running for president and said he was gonna ruin him. After that people listened to the freak and called him Hitler. He never burned people in ovens, shot them, killed all. So go on and spread a rumor so Jesus can judge you one day. And one more thing, how come YEARS AGO when he was not POPE yet didn’t people protest against the Pope back then and the Vatican?? HUH????. I am NOT for child abusers and was angry nothing was done back in the day. And if McCarrick is guilty put him on trial with adults he abused as they were children. And this Vigano??????WHERE THE HECK WAS HE THEN TOO???

  3. I do not approve of the way the CRIMES of sexual abuse was and still is handled in my Church. I believe it violates the law of the land and should be immediately turned over to the proper law enforcement agency. Saying that, every Pope has some people that would oppose him regardless of what he said or did. There are many men in the hierarchy of the church that practice dirty politics more than those calling themselves politicians. The Bishops will tell you they were trying to protect the Church. The truth is they were trying to protect themselves. Some are guilty of the same crime. I do not agree with some things Poor Francis says and does, but I think he is trying to bring the Church into 2018. I believe the Bible is a living document and that God expects us to be intelligent enough to understand when we need to change or correct interpretations of some scripture. We no longer own slaves, most men do not consider women as legal property, females share in inheritance, we no longer kill children for talking back, we do not stone to death the adulterous, women wear makeup and jewelry, we do not consider women during their cycle unclean, I have never met anyone who claims to literally live by the Bible that actually does.

  4. “Francis has not presented evidence or testimony disputing Viganò’s accusations.” It should also be noted that Vigano has not presented any evidence of his accusations either.

    • THE POPE WA TRAFFICING CHILDREN IN HIS NATIVE COUNTRY. THE BASEMENT OF THE CATHEDREL IS A HAVEN FOR STATES OF SATAN AND OTHER DEMONS. HE IS THE WORST PEDOPHILE IN HISTORY OF THE CHURCH. THEY
      THEN EAT THE CHILDREN. WOWL THE DEVEIL WILL BE WAITING FOR HIS DEMISE. HOW SICK IS THE CATHOLIC
      CHURCH. I WS A CATHOIC BUT NO MORE. THEY DO NOT TEACH THE BIBLE AND STRICK RULES ARE MADE TO KEEP THE FLOCK STUPIC AND SCARED OF ANY PROPOSED SINM. HE IS THE WORST PEDOPHILE IN HISTORY; AMEM

  5. It’s been almost 500 years since Henry VIII told the last meddlesome priest to go pound sand. Without any Henry VIII on the horizon, it will take a massive effort by the Catholic flock to rid the Vatican of the homosexual cabal that currently infests its priesthood, from top to bottom. There are no secrets behind the walls in Vatican City. It’s ruled by a small cadre of old white men who have spent their lives getting there. They live in splendor that would cause even King Louis XIV to blush and will not go quietly into the night. Too much is at stake for them.

    • The issue is not homosexual. It has been proven more heterosexuals abuse children than homosexuals. If you were in charge with your limited knowledge of sexuality you could not solve the problem either.

      • Tom Martin, If a so called heterosexual acts in the capacity of a pedophile that person IS homosexual. It is a matter of sexual perversion.

        • ACCORDING to Bible/ Ancient writings. IS
          EVILE/ perverted, 0N ‘planet Earth’. &
          = Death, according to Deluge. that’s all.

  6. I am confused; if the Pope is chosen by God as the Vicar of Christ how can this happen? Roman Catholics claim him to be the Head of the Church while in the protestant segment we believe Christ is the Head of the Church. If the RC community is correct, the pope must know all that his people, particular the leadership is doing. This means he is fully aware there are many perverts in the church ruining the lives of children.

    I have heard many statements by this pope that cause me to question his ability to lead. Since he has taken to habit to protect these homosexual perverts I can only assume he agrees with their actions. Next question, with so many perverts in the RCc how will they choose the next pope, how can they feel confident that another pervert or pedophile won’t end up leading the church. I wonder how many other popes have been much the same, it leads me to believe that all of them are gay.

  7. I am so glad that the exposure of the evil that is consuming the Church has been made public. People are probably not surprised that Pope Francis has been complicit in such behaviour as his diluted doctrine does not express the Truth. So many stories of corruption is going on daily. Every level of the hierarchy is involved. Catholic Universities teach false doctrine and are far removed from the Truth. I know my God is Merciful and I know God is forgiving. I also know that God will be Just in His Almighty eternity. We are all responsible to END THIS BETRAYAL. Our Church has been harmed and any person who thinks this scandal is trivial has another thought coming. Every single victim deserves justice and accountability from those who brought thus evil into their lives.

    • I agree the victims derserve justice and the crime needs to be punished. But, I believe Protestant’s have the same problems. Swaggart, Bob Jones University, Chuck Phelps, New Tribes Mission, Billy Graham’s Grandson says Protestant ministers abuse children just like Catholics do, an Insursnce survey done a few years back reveals the companies surveyed reported they had paid claims on minters abusing children on 260 Protestant ministers and 228 Catholic priest in one year. My friend the Protestant Churches are in the edge of facing a scandal as bad as we have. So you had better stop attacking us and sweep around your own doors. You Protestant can no longer dismiss the sexual abuse as only Catholic problem. You may want to know 12 percent if Protestant ministers un a secret survey admitted to sexual abuse st some time in their ministry.

  8. The entire Roman Catholic line of BS should be called in question. Its nothing but a bunch of holy BS anymore. There is no leadership there, if there was they should cast these violators out, defrock them, let them stand alone in front of those they violated, and let civil courts handle them, and send them to prison. Let them tend the flocks of illegal aliens in our jails where their punishment will come in their ends.

  9. It is hard to believe that the Roman Catholic Church has never really dealt with the awful-awful Priest Molestation Issues. This is totally unacceptable! Where are the Parents, Church Leadership, and Local Authorities? The Roman Catholic Church has become BANKRUPT in its incompetence, avoidance, ignorance, responsibility, deafness, and total lack of leadership! I trust that the financial penalties for their sin, stupidity, and coverups, really, really hurt! I am ashamed of the once great Roman Catholic Church. Will they ever come out from underneath this terrible plague that they have simply ignored for several Centuries? All of the Catholics I know are deeply ashamed and they believe the Church no longer even cares about it! I have one word to describe my feelings … INCREDULOUS!

    • THE POPE HAS BEEM IN THE PEDOPHILE//TRAFFICING CHILDREN. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WAS TAKEN OVER
      MANY YEARS / PERHAPS IN THE 1800S. THEY ARE ALL PEDOPHILES. CHECK OUT THE BASMENT OF THE
      VATICAN; STATUES TO SAATAB AND DEMONS. I ONCE WATCHED A PERSON WHO SBEAKED A CAMERA\ 0R A VIDEO OF THE DOWNSTAIARS OF THE VATICAN ……..SEE IF YOU CAN LOOK IT UP. DISGUSTIBG!

        • >>> WAKE UP, ftm (fake name). Seems you ‘know’
          NOTHING, but a ‘simple’ 0pine. Take a break
          from RR opines &&& D0 your DD. (Takes Hours/Days + )
          > you ‘KNOW NOTHING’ __ (for now) &&& your fakename
          is ‘blasphemous’ In ‘Certain Dimensions’ Far Beyond
          what you display here.

  10. I am a Catholic but I never cared for this pope. He is with the devil. He is more political than religious and a liberal at that. The picture of him with Obama explains everything. He should resign because he is a disgrace to the Church. If he does not go willingly, he should be fired. Him being the head of the Catholic Church will do no good for the Church. Such a disgrace!!!!!!

  11. I have read all your postings so far, and there seems to be a consensus for a thorough, true investigation be conducted. The second to last line read: “Catholics are owed answers and accountability.” I think we agree that all criminal behavior is a cancer and should be removed . . . that is why there is a need for the Mueller investigation to give answers and accountability. Clearly 6 guilty pleas or findings indicate something terrible was going on, and we have yet to get into the Russia conspiracy, which should be coming soon with the next Manafort trial. As the one pro-Trump juror said, she wanted Manafort to be innocent, but even she had no doubt on eight (8) felonies – -criminal behavior must be addressed and the offender removed. That holds true even if the offender is president along with his campaign staff, family and people who ran his companies.

  12. Popes are human. They are not God or even God-like. They are sinners, just like the rest of us. If it is true that Francis knew of this sexual abuse and looked the other way, he has no business being in any position of authority. I hope the church does a thorough, true investigation. All who participated in this terrible abuse or a cover up should be forced to resign and should be prosecuted.

  13. This pope is rotten, evil, twisted, sick, depraved, and NOTHING GODLY! Gods wrath will be swift, and severe! Catholics worldwide should condemn this popes non-action! Shame on you all.

      • You’re pope believes cull, not lest he be culled! I don’t like any part of the church that murdered Jesus! Any so called man that condones raping kids, should be whipped! I’m wearing the boots that can do it!

      • When Jesus said “Judge not that ye be judged” he wasn’t calling for us not to judge. First you must read the entire scripture. Second we ARE called to judge the actions of those within the faith. Third the ones we are not to judge concerning the faith of those outside the church, that is left to God. We MUST judge those within the faith, we are called to be responsible to one another and to provide a safe, truthful environment within the church, failure to do so violates our agreement with God. But in judgement we are called to care for a person who has drifted.

    • And God appreciate you trying to do his job passing judgement on who is good or not good enough to get in heaven. I do not think God cares at all about what you think of other people

  14. The Pope faced the one call he never thought he would receive
    THE POPE OPENED HIS MOUTH AT THE WRONG TIMES .
    THEN HE KEEP IT SHUT AT THE WRONG TIME
    TIME TO STEP DOWN

  15. He is a PIG! I hope he gets his ass reamed over and over and over! He can not just dismiss this abuse as something casual or easily paid for with “costs” or “tithes” as the CC demands. Francis is of the devil, he is evil and no one’s kids are safe under any priest that supports him. Think about this…YOUR KIDS might be at risk if a priest spends any time alone with them. Really?” You would risk your own kids?

    • He is a pervert himself. Perverts protect perverts. A a soldier of SATAN he salutes SODOMY because SODOMY is ALWAYS fruitless and often fatal…easily the equivalent of flinging human excrement at God; hitting God in the face with the human excrement; and then giving God the middle finger in hateful contempt.

      Furthermore, there are no such things as “liberal” or “conservative” Catholics. All there is are authentic Roman Catholics.

    • What happen to judge not less you will be judged. I really listen to people whose vocabulary is as limited as yours. Have you ever been screwed by a pig and know first hand how bad it hurts.

      • fake name, & you are a sicko w/pig remark. (& exposing your experience).
        Lika you don’t think that some ppl cannot see thru you ??? Seek Help.
        Your ‘Spiritual Soul’ Damage Leads to ‘physical’ Damage. You’ll see.
