Not being a Catholic, I chime in: Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò accuses Pope of something he’s guilty of and fails to address being essentially demoted. Why did Viganò interfere in an investigation himself? Something stinks in his accusation...
2/ Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has a series of “controversies” that give me pause on his accusations including arranging a meeting between Pope and Kim Davis, the clerk who refused to follow the law and give out marriage license to gay couple.
3/ Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò suppressed an investigation in the St Paul and Minnesota Archdiocese in 2014 but now points finger at Pope?
4/ Viganò has a noted history of taking up personal battles in top ranks. As an outsider I have seen him as a person who seeks to push an agenda associated with conservative vs liberal policies ( like the setup to have Kim Davis meet Pope )
5/ though the church has much to answer for in abuse scandals, there is a noted push associated with Steve Bannon and others to remove Pope Francis and everyone would be wise to keep an eye on his efforts to topple this Pontiff in particular.
6/ Bannon has been very active in this area of topple the Pope: amp.thedailybeast.com/steve-bannon-c…
7/ Bannon has been coordinating with several extremist leaders in the Catholic Church to retaliate against Francis for more liberal policies washingtonpost.com/opinions/steve…
If the former Vatican ambassador to the US was concerned about abuses, why quash an investigation into St Paul/Minneapolis? nytimes.com/2016/07/21/us/…
Last/ I welcome thoughts on this as an outsider. I have no religion and no political party (Thank God) but know these battles are evergreen and destructive to more than just the church and it’s followers.
Addendum: @HISTORY channel is pathetic. They are running a pseudo history piece called the Last Pope that is pure historical garbage. #basta
