The Latest Catholic Church Pedophile Priest Sex Scandal Pushes Pope Francis’ ‘Zero Tolerance’ Policy To Breaking Point At Vatican

McCarrick, the 88-year-old retired archbishop of Washington, was ultimately undone when the U.S. church announced June 20 that Francis had ordered him removed from public ministry. The sanction was issued pending a full investigation into a “credible” allegation that he fondled a teenager more than 40 years ago in New York City.

The Catholic dioceses of Newark and Metuchen, N.J., revealed that they had received three complaints of misconduct by Cardinal McCarrick against adults and had settled two of them

The Whore of Babylon is having a tough time these days as scandal after scandal involving high-ranking Catholic cardinals keep coming to light. The Vatican barely had time to catch their breath over the pedophile sexual abuse scandal in Chile, when accusations against US Cardinal Theodore McCarrick were made recently.

“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:5 (KJV)

The sex scandal in Chile was especially damaging to the pope as it was revealed that he in fact had lied about knowing the extent of the damage, even denying that he had been sent a letter from victims begging him for help. You may recall that Pope Francis met with one of the victims afterward, and told him that it was “OK to be gay” which sparked a global backlash.

FROM SF GATE: Revelations that one of the most respected U.S. cardinals allegedly sexually abused both boys and adult seminarians have raised questions about who in the Catholic Church hierarchy knew — and what Pope Francis is going to do about it. If the accusations against Cardinal Theodore McCarrick bear out — including a new case reported Friday involving an 11-year-old boy — will Francis revoke his title as cardinal? Sanction him to a lifetime of penance and prayer? Or even defrock him, the expected sanction if McCarrick were a mere priest? And will Francis, who already has denounced a “culture of cover-up” in the church, take the investigation all the way to the top, where it will inevitably lead? McCarrick’s alleged sexual misdeeds with adults were reportedly brought to the Vatican’s attention years ago. The matter is now on the desk of the pope, who has already spent the better part of 2018 dealing with a spiraling child sex abuse, adult gay sex and cover-up scandal in Chile that was so vast the entire bishops’ conference offered to resign in May.

It’s not that things have “gotten so bad” with the Catholic Church, pedophile priests have been doing their nastiness for quite some time. But in the age of social media, it is no longer possible for the priestly predators to remain anonymous. Even the Catholic Church I was raised in had a priest that was accused and found guilty of molesting a parishioner in 2017. The event did not occur in my former church.

But the larger scandal than the child molestations that the Catholic Church has on their hands at the moment are the years of coverups of the abuse by the Vatican. Certainly decades of abuse could not have existed without Vatican officials knowing about it and covering it up.

Will Pope Francis do something about all this, or is he part of the coverup? It’s a 50-50 shot at this point.

Pope Francis told a joke about Cardinal McCarrick after his recuperation from a cardiac incident. It’s quite telling.

FROM LIFESTITE NEWS: In October 2013, McCormick gave a speech at Villanova entitled, “Who is Pope Francis.” During the talk, McCarrick shared a conversation that he had with the newly elected Pope Francis. McCarrick told the audience that he had a very serious cardiac incident while he was at the Vatican during the 2013 Conclave. When he returned from the hospital to the seminary where he was staying, his phone rang and it was the newly elected Pope Francis on the line inquiring about McCarrick’s health. McCarrick relayed this conversation with the Pope Francis, “I told the Pope that I guess the Lord still has some work for me to do.” The Pope responded to McCarrick, “But on the other hand, maybe the Devil did not have your accommodations ready.READ MORE
