Francis' Biographer Downplays McCarrick Scandal

I expect no less of Ivereigh. If Francis were to kill the Cardinal Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Church with his own hand, Ivereigh would find a way to downplay it!

From Gloria.tv

Austen Ivereigh, the official biographer of Pope Francis and one of his most outspoken defenders, downplayed (Twitter, August 29) the explosive Viganò statement,

“As far as I can tell at this moment, the most serious charge against Francis is that in 2013 he knew about but failed to implement a sanction that was never made public and never enforced against a long retired cardinal who had sex with adults decades earlier.”

Then Ivereigh asked – as if a bishop forcing adult seminarians into his bed is no big deal – “What am I missing?”

Pope Francis has forced bishops to retire for much lesser misdeeds than his own hushing up of the McCarrick abuses.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
