FrankenPope Hides Behind “Silence, Prayer”

 FrankenPope Hides Behind “Silence, Prayer” – 9/3/18

Pope Francis commented in his September 3 homily on Luke 4 which speaks about Jesus in the synagogue of Nazareth.

He used the homily to implicitly defend himself against the explosive statement of whistle-blower Archbishop Carlo Viganò who witnessed how Francis himself provided the homosexual abuser Cardinal McCarrick with a cover.

In his homily, Francis claimed that Jesus, facing opposition, stayed silent: “With people lacking goodwill, with people who only seek scandal, who seek only division, who seek only destruction, even within the family: silence, prayer.”

He even spoke about “wild dogs” – in Italian: “cani selvaggi” – who seek war and not peace.

Francis needs to be reminded that the Viganò statement is not about villainising its author but about hard facts involving Francis and his pro-gay friends in hushing up the homosexual abuses of Cardinal McCarrick.

Pro-gay and pro-Francis outlets like the Argentinean (September 1) have attempted to label the facts presented by Viganò as “attacks of the ultra-conservative”, as if committing and hushing up sexual abuses is o.k. as long as it is done by the liberals.

  1. Tragically, it would appear that the Pope is gaslighting, as if he could hide behind scripture twister. He should answer the question on Vigano’s main allegations, where he was aware of allegations about Cardinal McCarrick and whether he removed sanctions against the cardinal imposed by Pope Benedict (if there were any). The longer he tries to hide behind juvenile games of scripture twister and gaslighting, the worse the scandal gets. This is not a scandal about pilfering from the collection plate to bet on race horses at the track.

  2. But, Howl, it’s plastics. In the ocean. What’s that movie?

    Anyhow, we know the answer. Francis knows we know the answer. So, back to plastics …

    Switch on the Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack music.

    Boys and girls, once upon a time there was a much simpler time of carefree days when you could be alienated, safe in suburbia, from encroaching Frankfurt School Marxism, without worries of the government or the Illuminati tracking you through the internet and social media with algorithms. The folk guitar Mass was still in the initial planning stages and the hippie priest as social activist had only just begun, when Vatican II, like acid or the Monkees, was just beginning to gain youth attention. And gas was only 29 cents a gallon.
    Oh, yes….[sigh]…the good ol’ days.

    When Murray Hamilton had not yet kept the beaches open too long as Mayor of Shark City in Jaws and still had Chappaquiddick, Watergate, and the withdrawal from Vietnam to look forward to.
