Archbishop Carlo Vigano has some questions about the Vatican Dog and Pony Sex Abuse Summit:

 

I am praying intensely for the success of the February summit. Although I would rejoice greatly if the summit were successful, the following questions reveal that there is no sign of a genuine willingness to attend to the real causes of the present situation:

  • Why will the meeting focus exclusively on the abuse of minors? These crimes are indeed the most horrific, but the crises in the United States and Chile that have largely precipitated the upcoming summit have to do with abuses committed against young adults, including seminarians, not only against minors. Almost nothing has been said about sexual misconduct with adults, which is itself a grave abuse of pastoral authority, whether or not the relationship was “consensual.”
  • Why does the word “homosexuality” never appear in recent official documents of the Holy See? This is by no means to suggest that most of those with a homosexual inclination are abusers, but the fact remains that the overwhelming majority of abuse has been inflicted on post-pubescent boys by homosexual clerics. It is mere hypocrisy to condemn the abuse and claim to sympathize with the victims without facing up to this fact honestly. A spiritual revitalization of the clergy is necessary, but it will be ultimately ineffectual if it does not address this problem.
  • Why does Pope Francis keep and even call as his close collaborators people who are notorious homosexuals? Why has he refused to answer legitimate and sincere questions about these appointments? In doing so he has lost credibility on his real will to reform the Curia and fight the corruption.

Go here to read the rest.  The answer to each of these questions is the same:  the Lavender Mafia.

  1. There is no such thing as informed consent with regards to crime and sin. If Eve had not been fed a half-truth, she would not have eaten the apple. This does not relieve any conscience of the guilt for having accepted the half-truth and sought out sin and crime. Gullibility, stupidity, spiritual sloth and indifference to a Divine calling in each and every individual sovereign person is a sin against the self.
    To love our neighbor as ourselves does not mean hatred of neighbor because one hates oneself.
    Again, there can be no informed consent to the abomination of sodomy, a violation of “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God” (Declaration), a violation of the neighbor and a violation of the self.
    Hell, like heaven will be meted out according to one’s own measure. Great souls will have great heaven. Abandoned souls will have great hell.
    Homosexuality as sacrifice, offered up to God merits heaven. Indulging in sodomy results in self-loathing and disgust.
    The unraveling of the deceit worked upon the faithful and innocent children requires constant vigilance, shepherding as it were, to avoid harm.
    Pope Francis has no concern for shepherding of his flock in the matter of sodomy. Pope Francis leaves his innocent children vulnerable to sodomy and without informed consent, the greater omission, abandoning these uninformed souls to perdition.

  2. I cannot imagine the pressures that Cardinal Vigano must be experiencing from all sides concerning his all out assault on the Church’s homosexual abuse crisis and calling out the Pope and naming names. Homosexual abuse crisis. Yes, lets call a spade a spade.

    Vigano is one of a handful of bishops that have the temerity to go against the Vatican grain, the good ole’ boys club. Is he concerned for his own safety? I should say so. It may be lavender but it is the mafia after all. Seems to me that the modus operandi of the Vatican et al is silence when ever accused or asked uncomfortable questions: Dubia anyone? Keep silent until it passes…

    I’m sorry Bishops, but I have very little trust in you and your credibility to deal with this homosexual abuse crisis. Problem number one? You don’t believe homosexuality is the issue or if you do, you want or are pressured to hide it. Problem number two? One only has to listen to the narrative of the Pope and yourselves as you claim it is clericism that is at the root of the Church’s scandal. I’m sorry for this outburst but bullshit.

    Clean up your act bishops or Christ will do it for you, and you don’t want to get to that point.

  3. Pastoral poppycock ahead.
    To not address active homosexuality in the priesthood is to slap the faces of the victims and their families.
    Here’s my nickels worth;
    Pope ambiguous strikes again.
    That’s what showed up in the tea leaves this morning.

The nine experts have been asked to reflect on the root causes of the problem, and the most effective path forward for the Church.

  5. It helped me recall that Archbishop Vigano’s M.O. has been to convey facts and opinions to only trusted media sources. His first letter was sent out to six of them with instructions for the letter to be printed by all on the same date.
