The Catholic Church is in serious trouble, at least according to everyone whose mailing address isn’t in Vatican City.
Here is the bold, blunt, and grotesque truth about the Catholic Church: They are either harboring or creating pedophiles at a rate that should have every God-fearing man, woman, and child in the world banging down the doors of The Vatican with pitchforks and torches.
There are no other options: They are either allowing pedophiles to remain involved in the church by choice, or they are somehow manifesting this evil out of thin air through some clandestine program. The frequency at which we discover this filth among organized Catholic dioceses is simply too high for us to consider any benign, third option.
Sorry if this is a shock to anyone, but this revelation has been a long time coming.
For his part, the high pontiff Pope Francis has lifted barely a finger to address this rampant, stomach-turning reality, on several occasions even going so far as to lambast the accusers.
Now there is more trouble for the embattled Pope, after yet another instance of his papal prejudice to promote perverts has been discovered.
The Vatican received information in 2015 and 2017 that an Argentine bishop close to Pope Francis had taken naked selfies, exhibited “obscene” behavior and had been accused of misconduct with seminarians, his former vicar general told The Associated Press, undermining Vatican claims that allegations of sexual abuse were only made a few months ago.
Francis accepted Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta’s resignation in August 2017, after priests in the remote northern Argentine diocese of Oran complained about his authoritarian rule and a former vicar, seminary rector and another prelate provided reports to the Vatican alleging abuses of power, inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment of adult seminarians, said the former vicar, the Rev. Juan Jose Manzano.
The scandal over Zanchetta, 54, is the latest to implicate Francis as he and the Catholic hierarchy as a whole face an unprecedented crisis of confidence over their mishandling of cases of clergy sexual abuse of minors and misconduct with adults. Francis has summoned church leaders to a summit next month to chart the course forward for the universal church, but his own actions in individual cases are increasingly in the spotlight.
The pope’s decision to allow Zanchetta to resign quietly, and then promote him to the No. 2 position in one of the Vatican’s most sensitive offices, has raised questions again about whether Francis turned a blind eye to misconduct of his allies and dismissed allegations against them as ideological attacks.
Given the intensity with which these allegations have been steamrolling through The Vatican, concerns over the future for Pope Francis seem valid.
The Bold Bovine: Art by Doug Giles
[written by Doug Giles and republished with permission.] For those of you who’ve read the book the Leftists love to loathe, namely, The Bible, you know that King David went through more crap than Michael Moore’s colon. His brothers didn’t like him. King Saul sought to kill him and The Philistines weren’t big fans of his either. Later in life, because of his sin of bumping uglies with Bathsheba and having her old man offed, his own kid sought to dethrone him as a consequence of David’s dalliance. Suffice in to say that his ‘walk with God’ was messy. David constantly needed God to bail him out and to come through in a big way with His supernatural power and boy howdy, did God ever show Himself mighty on David’s behalf! In Psalm 92:10 David said, ” … You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.” King David said God made him akin to a … wild bull? Yes, Dinky. David said God made him like a wild bull. When’s the last time you’ve heard that preached at your Hipster Feelgood Church? Never I’m a guessin’. In light of Psalm 92:10 I’m starting a series of oil paintings depicting both ancient and current wild bovines as a homage to Ps.92:10 and a reminder to my clients that when you get into deep doo-doo, don’t curl up in the fetal position and wet your big Christian diaper. Call out to God and ask Him to make you like a wild bull that kicks demonic ass. Here’s the first in my series of bold bovine. The original is sold but we have prints available. We print on luster paper, museum quality canvas, wood and for all you metalheads, yes, we print…
LA County Now Lifting Ban On Indoor Worship Services ‘To Align With Recent SCOTUS Rulings’
Los Angeles County has decided to finally follow the Constitution and honor the First Amendment right of freedom of religion — a right handed down by God Himself — and lift a ban on indoor church worship services over the weekend after recent Supreme Court rulings in favor of houses of worship. Gee, how nice of them to allow folks to do what God commands them to do and hold services inside a building like normal people. This should never have been something that needed a Supreme Court ruling. The Constitution is pretty clear that the right to freely expression religion is protected. via Daily Wire: “The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with recent Supreme Court rulings for places of worship,” the county said in a press release Saturday. “Places of worship are permitted to offer faith-based services both indoors and outdoors with mandatory physical distancing and face coverings over both the nose and mouth that must be worn at all times while on site. Places of worship must also assure that attendance does not exceed the number of people who can be accommodated while maintaining a physical distance of six feet between separate households.” “Public Health strongly recommends that places of worship continue to hold services outdoors, with physical distancing and the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community,” the release continued. “Because Los Angeles County is experiencing an unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, every effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community is critical. This is an absolute win for religious liberty, one of the most important and fundamental rights our republic was established upon. In fact, it was our forefathers seeking after religious…
