Cardinal Cupich: “FrankenPope has a bigger agenda”

The cardinal archbishop of Chicago said of Pope Francis’ critics: “Quite frankly, they also don’t like him because he’s a Latino.”

[No, our opposition is to his “bigger agenda”! – AQ Tom]

In an interview with NBC 5 Chicago, Cardinal Blase Cupich spoke about accusations from former papal nuncio Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano that Pope Francis knew about allegations of sexual misconduct by Archbishop Theodore McCarrick. Cupich was named in Vigano’s 11-page testament as one of the American prelates who owes his advancement to McCarrick’s influence.

“The record shows that whenever there’s actionable information, Pope Francis acts,” Cardinal Cupich told NBC 5’s Mary Ann Ahern. Pope Francis refused to comment on Vigano’s statement when asked about it by reporters on Sunday.

Cardinal Cupich seemed to defend Francis’ silence on Vigano’s charges.

“The Pope has a bigger agenda,” he 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.”

Cardinal Cupich also had thoughts about the motives of some of Francis’ critics: “Quite frankly, they also don’t like him because he’s a Latino.”

Cardinal Cupich indicated that the Catholic Church should not be the only institution under scrutiny for its protection of minors.

“It’s not just about the Catholic Church. Let’s look at all the agencies and institutions that deal with children on a day-to-day basis.”

  1. This latest scandal involving our Pope is, in my opinion, possibly the worst. It means that he knowingly promoted and advanced an active, predatory homosexual through the high ranks of the Church and against the express intentions of the previous Pope. There is no way he can ignore this. The charges made are far too serious for him to remain silent about. And as for Cupich saying that the Pope needs to focus on more important issues such as “talking about the environment and protecting migrants…” that just tells us all we want to know about what really matters in Rome now.
    No wonder God blotted Sodom and Gomorrah out of existence, God knew that active, non repentant, homosexuals are extremely dangerous and corrupting people. We are now finding out just how much damage they are causing to Mother Church.
    God save us.

  2. It was a given that the homo-enabling modernists would play the “homophobia” card at some point in this scandal. That Cupich plays the Latino card in his gaslighting dodge to bail out Bergoglio is pathetic. Pope Francis is of Italian ancestry, for all practical purposes the same as Bishop Vigano or Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani (a hero of conservatives and traditional Catholics). Perhaps Bishop Morlino criticizes Pope Francis for that reason? Perhaps Marco Tosatti , Roberto de Mattei, and Sandro Magister have all been critics of Bergoglio because they are offended by the Pope’s Italian ancestry? Come on.

    Do papal critics go after Wuerl, McCarrick, and Cardinal Mahoney because of their ethnicity as well?
