Thousands of Women Pen Open Letter to Pope Francis in the Midst of Abuse Cover-Up Allegations

Here’s What They Said.

After years of stunningly progressive comments descending from the highest post in the Catholic church, Pope Francis has finally gone too far.

While he has, at this point, declined to comment either way, he has been accused of appointing a known abuser of both seminary students and small children to a prominent position in the church with the full awareness of his past sexual crimes.

This accusation was the climax of a mounting uproar over the discovery of heinous abuses at the hands of Catholic priests and what appeared to be systematic attempts by church leadership to cover-up the ongoing sexual abuse and grooming of small children.

Pope Francis has been at the center of the news this week as Catholics wrestle with the uproar, and the mainstream media has, stunningly, been defending him at the utmost…because he’s the most progressive pope in history, of course.

Regardless, Catholics themselves are holding him to a much higher standard, and thousands of women have signed an open letter to the pontiff demanding he answer for what he has been accused of.

The letter reads, in part:

You have said that you seek “a more incisive female presence in the Church,” and that “women are capable of seeing things with a different angle from [men], with a different eye. Women are able to pose questions that we men are not able to understand.”

We write to you, Holy Father, to pose questions that need answers.

We are Catholic women deeply committed to our faith and profoundly grateful for Church teachings, the Sacraments, and the many good bishops and priests who have blessed our lives.

Our hearts are broken, our faith tested, by the escalating crisis engulfing our beloved Church. We are angry, betrayed and disillusioned. The pain and suffering of the victims never ends, as each news cycle brings more horrific revelations of sexual abuse, sexual misconduct, cover-ups, and deceit—even at the Church’s highest levels.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s recent statement impels us to reach out to you directly for answers. His testimony accuses you, Holy Father, and highly placed cardinals of turning a blind eye to former Cardinal McCarrick’s egregious behavior, and promoting this predator as a global spokesman and spiritual leader. Is this true?

These are devastating allegations. As USCCB President Cardinal Daniel D. DiNardo recently stated, “The questions raised deserve answers that are conclusive and based on evidence.” We agree.

The Blaze notes that “signers of the letter include professors and faculty from Catholic universities such as Notre Dame; senior fellow Kathryn Jean Lopez of the National Review Institute; founder and president of Culture of Life Africa, Obianuju Ekeocha; homeschooling mothers and mothers of seminarians.”

Democrats are just bad people. It’s really that simple. They still can’t believe President Trump won the 2016 election and they’re willing to do everything in their power to ensure he loses in November. Lying doesn’t faze them. Not one bit. Check this out, via The Daily Wire: The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have both reportedly confirmed that a laptop allegedly belonging to Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is not part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

Trump Trolls Reporter Who Had COVID-19 for Not Wearing Mask At the White House (Watch)

Got her good!

Nobody can troll better than President Trump. The thing is, he’s usually out in front of an issue before anybody else can see a problem – and he’s generally right. Check out how POTUS nailed a biased reporter on Tuesday. From The Daily Wire: President Donald Trump released a video on Tuesday afternoon of “60 Minutes” reporter Lesley Stahl—who had a serious case of the coronavirus that required hospitalization earlier this year—not wearing a mask inside the White House and not social distancing. […] The video comes after there was apparently some sort of incident during the interview that caused Trump to end it early. “60 Minutes” is a left-wing program and Stahl has shown bias against the president in the past. WATCH: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1318644698341408769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1318644698341408769%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3%2Ccontainerclick_1&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-releases-video-of-reporter-who-had-coronavirus-not-wearing-mask-social-distancing-in-white-house When Trump was released from Walter Reed Medical Center after being cleared of COVID-19, he took off his mask when he stood on the White House balcony. Nobody was near him. That’s not good enough for this CNN reporter. From TDW: “Yeah and let us remind viewers now that the president is on steroids and a drug that fewer than 10 people outside of clinical trials have gotten inside the United States to deal with coronavirus,” Collins said. “He had a level of treatment and a level of care that most Americans would not get. That’s understandable, he is the president of the United States, obviously everyone expects that.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/kaitlancollins/status/1313257137599111169?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1313257137599111169%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fcnn-reporter-complains-about-trump-taking-mask-off-trump-campaign-shows-her-taking-her-mask-off-inside-wh The problem here? Well, just watch the clip below… The Trump campaign quickly hit back at Collins, highlighting a video clip from earlier this year where she immediately took her mask off inside the White House press briefing room — an enclosed indoor space where other people were present — after she apparently thought the cameras had been turned off following the end of a…
