Time To Publish The 300 Pages Secret Report
In the middle of the current crisis, one of the 300 demands that should be made of Francis is the request to make the famous 300 pages secret report public.
After which, Francis’ officials should explain to, basically, the planet what has been investigated and what the results of the investigations were. Furthermore, they should explain what has not been investigated and why.
This is the Pope who was allegedly elected in order to fight corruption in the Vatican. It is only reasonable that he would, now that he is accused of being inactive, or much worse, give an account of his activity in this matter. No doubt, such a humble Pope – who likes to call himself a Bishop – will not have any problem with giving account of his activity in such a delicate matter, in the presence of such distress among the faithful.
Unless, that is, the record would show that almost nothing was done, and that the report actually contains several of the names now at the centre of the scandal; names of people protected or even promoted by what is now, beyond reasonable doubt, the most horrible Pope in history by quite a distance.
I will not hold my breath on this. Rather, I suspect we will get more blabber of the usual kind, spiced with the more or less veiled insults the man loves to throw at us Catholics.
The Movement currently in place is slowly taking the form of a huge exorcism of sort. God willing, it will become a big cleansing machine as criminal investigations are started in many US states and, hopefully, a couple of European ones (not much confident in South America, but hey…). We need to pray that this may, by God’s grace, happen.
To think that, even to this day, Francis is unwilling to give account for a vast amount of information, whose existence, though not its content, was widely published, and thinks he will get away with it is, truly, mind-boggling and gives the full measure of the arrogance, incompetence and sheer stupidity of the man.
But hey: if one rapes children and sleeps with boys and loves social justice, who is he to judge?
