The Gospel of MAGA - Fr. Frank Pavone via @YouTube
2. This movement has captured the imagination of so many formerly conservative Catholics and pro-life activists.…
3. Fr Pavone is far from the only rogue US priest who is not being held accountable for spreading sensational and apocalyptic conspiracy theories.…
4. Bishops too, have been spreading wild theories and misinformation. During the Covid crisis, they are now spreading rumors that can cost people their lives.…
5. Then there was the time American @cardinalrlburke said that with the vaccine “a kind of microchip needs to be placed under the skin of every person, so that at any moment he or she can be controlled by the State.”…
6. And with leadership like this, it's no wonder that laity aren't far behind. <end>…

Milo is quitting the alt-right and white nationalism? I didn't pick that up from the interview...
The bishop referred to the "culture" he was leaving. I see no indication that he has been working to change anything except a few aspects of his behavior.

As far as I can tell, however, his "culture" (white nationalism & alt-right) remains the same.
I mean, he got himself kicked off PARLER less than a month ago. (how is that even possible?) Great that he is trying to live chastely but he doesn't seem interested in the faith in its fullness.

The #McCarrickReport, which likely wouldn't have been commissioned (and certainly would never be made public) by his predecessors, shows an institutional Church and 2 popes who placed an idealized vision of Catholicism over the reality of the abuse by leaders in the Church. 2/
I accept at face value the explanation that John Paul II fell prey to the lies of predators like McCarrick & Maciel, and thought they were innocent.

He certainly wouldn't CONDONE abuse. But he clearly placed his trust in clerics over the people of God. 3/

"It has been a long journey, but I believe that the events that have unfolded now lead us to bring this saga to an end. I do believe that much healing has already taken place for many and still much more is necessary."
"Those who followed him separated themselves from the Church which became a source of great scandal and wound that was inflicted upon all of us."
