The way FrancisChurch is unraveling under our eyes is, whilst depressing in consideration of the man’s obvious wickedness, still consoling in that, as often stated, oportet ut scandala eveniant.
This article links three of Francis’ closest collaborators to a year long, relentless cover-up activity, and all three wear a red robe: Cardinal Maradiaga, Cardinal Errazuriz and Cardinal Ladaria. Astonishingly, Cardinal Ladaria is the new head of the CDF.
Read the article for the sordid details.
Note that three out of these three men were promoted by Francis to position of higher responsibility in full knowledge of the polemics and accusations surrounding them. This is, again, a behaviour that can be explained only if we assume that all three major components of Francis character were present in turbocharged fashion:
- arrogance, and
Even an extremely wicked and arrogant man would, if in possession of a modicum of intelligence, have known better than to surround himself with an entire line of smoking guns. Not so Francis, who – being stupid – actually proceeded to shoot himself in the black boots multiple times and even dared to factually dismantle and make impotent Benedict’s effective reforms meant at countering clerical abuse.
Again, this is the same unbearable insolence, the same unspeakable arrogance of the man who, asked about the “gay mafia”, mocked them asking them where this gay mafia would reside and whether they would wear an identification badge. His insolence and stupidity was already evident with such assertions; what surprises now is not their existence, but their scale.
Make no mistake: Francis is never going to overcome this. The scandals will never leave him, and who knows what other smoking guns are about to emerge. His pontificate and his reputation are well and truly screwed among both Catholics (we knew that) and worldly people (this is a new development).
Francis has nuked his own Pontificate.
Can’t say it’s very sad to see the atomic mushroom go up in the sky.
