In this pontificate it is always whether you are a crony of the Pope:


Despite being investigated for allegations of having sexually abused two seminarians, an Argentinian bishop close to the pope has once again been allowed by a judge to travel to Rome.

The judge said that Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta has “collaborated” with the investigation and has a document from the Vatican saying he must return to Rome “to continue with his daily work” – even though he has been suspended from his job.

Crux can confirm that the document being used as justification for allowing Zanchetta to travel back to Rome is a certificate signed by Venezuelan Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra, the Substitute for the Vatican’s Secretariat of State, arguably the third highest position in this office.

Go here to read the rest.  Not too may accused felons get to globe trot around the world.  Go here to get more background on Zanchetta.  And on that typical note for this pontificate, PopeWatch will be on Labor Day weekend hiatus until next Tuesday.

  1. Don’t worry. Francis is spiritually close to Zanchetta’s victims and is praying for them. Move along folks, nothing to see here.

  2. I don’t see the big deal. Special treatment for special people. Hillary Clinton, Andrew McCabe, James Coney, it’s the American way.

  3. The Vatican seems to be competing with WADC for greatest swamp-stench. Will a cleansing of the Vatican take place before the “I will vomit you out of mouth” promise occurs? God have mercy.
