Pope Francis Protecting Pedophile Priests As Vatican Bars Action by U.S. Bishops On Sex-Abuse Reforms at Annual Conference

The Vatican told Cardinal DiNardo about the directive only Sunday night, according to a bishop familiar with the situation. Most of the bishops in the hall didn’t learn that the votes on sex abuse had been canceled until Cardinal DiNardo announced it from the dais, said Bishop Christopher Coyne, of Burlington, Vt. Many appeared shocked when they heard the news.

Roman Catholic bishops from around the nation have been ordered by the Vatican not to take any actions at their annual meeting to address the sex-abuse crisis that has rocked the church this year.

At the annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, they were all set to address the escalating crisis of one third of bishops in America covering up for pedophile priests. But before they could take any sort of action on that subject, the Vatican sent word that that were under no condition to discuss or act on it. You heard that correctly. Pope Francis banned the bishops from doing anything to address the very scandal that is about to collapse the entire foundation of sand that the Catholic Church is built on.

“But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.” Revelation 2:6 (KJV)

Pope Francis is doing his level best, by sheer virtue of his will, to somehow make the entire Catholic priest pedophile sex scandal pop like a soap bubble and disappear into thin air, never to be seen or heard from again. But someone should tell the pope that, in spite of the impressive size of Vatican City, there are not nearly enough closets in which to hide the truth he so desperately wants to keep from view.

Vatican Bars Action by U.S. Bishops on Sex-Abuse Reforms at Conference

FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, announced the news in his opening remarks at the conference, surprising many attendees for whom the topic was a top concern.

The Vatican told Cardinal DiNardo about the directive only Sunday night, according to a bishop familiar with the situation. It demonstrates the continuing rift between Pope Francis and U.S. bishops over how to address the abuse crisis, the latest iteration of which began with an August report by the Pennsylvania attorney general documenting the abuse of more than 1,000 children by more than 300 priests.

The Vatican has insisted that any official actions on the sexual-abuse crisis will have to wait until a global summit on the issue planned for February, Cardinal DiNardo announced.

The cardinal added that he was “disappointed” not to be voting this week on reforms related to sex abuse. The Vatican declined to comment.

Earlier this year, the Vatican asked the bishops to cancel their annual conference in Baltimore and instead hold a retreat for spiritual reflection on sex abuse. The bishops refused and went ahead with the meeting anyhow, though they did schedule a spiritual retreat for January.
