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.”

Watch: 2020 Democrat Joe Biden Thinks COVID-19 Is Called the ‘Luhan’ Virus

It’s Wuhan, Joe. Wu-han.

More often than not, 2020 liberal frontrunner Joe Biden doesn’t know what he’s saying. If he does, he’s not doing a great job of communicating his thoughts with the American people. You’d think his campaign would keep him out of the spotlight, considering he has his party’s nomination all but secured. But nope. Joe is still doing interviews and saying silly things that prove he has no business within 500 feet of the White House. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1243686891368722437?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1243686891368722437&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F03%2Fwhat-is-wrong-with-old-joe-biden-refers-to-wuhan-coronavirus-as-luhan-virus-video%2F From Washington Examiner: Joe Biden’s campaign said the candidate has yet to take the coronavirus test because he is unaware of any contact with the disease. “Vice President Biden has no fever, no cough, no shortness of breath or other symptoms consistent with coronavirus,” the campaign said in a Friday statement. “And the campaign has not been informed of or become aware of any relevant contact with an individual who has tested positive.” Joe isn’t in favor of a travel ban, apparently. From Breitbart: Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) is refusing to listen to the advice of the nation’s leading medical experts, continuing his opposition to travel bans in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. President Donald Trump’s administration has implemented travel bans on China, Iran, and most of Europe to stop the outbreak of the coronavirus in the U.S. Leading medical experts said this week that 30 states now have coronavirus cases due to international travel with Europe, from where 70 percent of the world’s new cases are now originating.

Michael Rapaport will never win an award for being politically brilliant. Accordingly, the actor isn’t likely to be named the most handsome man on earth, either. Once again, Rapaport has decided to show the nation that he’s not only ugly on the outside, but on the inside, too. Check this out, via The Blaze: Far-left actor Michael Rapaport — who earlier this week called first lady Melania Trump a “dumb animal” — dropped a payload of F-bombs against President Donald Trump and most of his offspring Wednesday, including his teen son Barron, and wanted to see them all exposed to the coronavirus.
