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.”

Democrat Senators Refuse To Comment On Removal Of George Washington Statues

Published

on

The Daily Caller recently reached out to the offices of every single Democratic senator to find out what they thought of the notion of tearing down George Washington statues, a move that would be consistent with their support of the removal of other works of art and monuments that Black Lives Matter and other radical leftists claim offend someone. Every single one of them refused to comment. That’s telling, isn’t it? Check out more of the details from The Washington Examiner: One senator, Tammy Duckworth from Illinois, recently said she supports a conversation on removing such statues. “He should be talking about what we’re going to do to overcome this pandemic,” Duckworth said of President Trump during a CNN interview earlier in July. “What are we going to do to push Russia back? Instead, he had no time for that. He spent all his time talking about dead traitors.” She added during the interview, “I think we should listen to the argument there. But remember that the president at Mount Rushmore was standing on ground that was stolen from Native Americans who had actually been given that land during a treaty.” What this really comes down to is the fact the left wants to sanitize the history of the United States and supplant the truth with their own revisionist version of events in order to help support their own progressive principles to further brainwash future generations of young people into being loyal to the state and the values it espouses. The reality is, we need to leave these monuments alone, even if they are offensive. Why? Because, for starters, people are more complex than all evil and all good. At least most people. These monuments are a testament to the history of our nation. They remind us of who we…

Failed Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton Says ‘We Must Be Ready’ For Possibility Trump Will Refuse To Leave Office

Published

on

Twice failed Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to demonstrate that she’s sour over the major defeat she suffered at the hands of Donald Trump by spouting off all sorts of nonsense conspiracy theories about the president not leaving office if he loses the election this year. Obviously, this is nothing more than an attempt to fear monger and try making liberals shake in their boots and show up en masse to defeat the president in November. The more scared the left keeps people, the more they will refuse to see the truth behind what is happening in our country, believing that the only way to stay safe from the big, bad president is through liberal policies. Clinton conducted an interview with Trevor Noah from The Daily Show where she discussed mail-in ballots and potential voter suppression. Here’s more detail from The Washington Examiner: Noah asked Clinton if there was a scenario she could envision in which the president loses the election but argues that a couple instances of voter fraud are enough to invalidate of the election results. “Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he’s going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that. But there have been so many academic studies and other analyses, which point out that it’s just an inaccurate, fraudulent claim,” she said in reference to Republican claims about the potential for widespread voter fraud via mail-in ballots. Voting by mail, a longstanding practice, has been fiercely debated as more election officials have expanded access to absentee voting during the coronavirus pandemic. https://youtu.be/jwhCtkssg00 “Look, I want a fair election. If people get to vote and they, for whatever reason, vote for Donald Trump,…
