Elder Patriot – Smart people realize that the more they know, the more they know they don’t know.
When it comes to the Catholic Church, sadly, the more we have come to know, the more we wish we didn’t know. The depth of the Church’s sins are bad and made worse by Pope Francis’ decision to hide, rather than excommunicate, the sinners.
Kinda like how the election of Trump has exposed the depth of corruption that the election of Hillary Clinton likely would’ve guaranteed remained hidden and protected.
Yesterday, Breitbart reported on yet another instance of sexual depravity in the Church that Pope Francis knew about and, not only ignored, but he actually promoted the perpetrator:
ORAN, Argentina (AP) — The Vatican received information in 2015 and 2017 that an Argentine bishop close to Pope Francis had taken naked selfies, exhibited “obscene” behavior and had been accused of misconduct with seminarians, his former vicar general told The Associated Press, undermining Vatican claims that allegations of sexual abuse were only made a few months ago.
Francis accepted Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta’s resignation in August 2017, after priests in the remote northern Argentine diocese of Oran complained about his authoritarian rule and a former vicar, seminary rector and another prelate provided reports to the Vatican alleging abuses of power, inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment of adult seminarians, said the former vicar, the Rev. Juan Jose Manzano.
The pope allowed Zanchetta to quietly resign, and then promoted him to the No. 2 position in one of the Vatican’s most sensitive offices.
Another day, another sex scandal for the Holy See. I do not report this with any sense of glee. Rather to understand the level of corruption that has infected our highest and most respected levels of leadership.
It’s become so commonplace that a person has to question whether the Church was targeted for self-immolation by those who fear the power of a just God.
Alex Jones had posited the theory that the Church was deliberately seeded with homosexuals and pedophiles decades ago in an effort to destroy the legitimacy of the Church as the moral guide spreading the word of God on earth.
Why? One explanation could be so that the government would eventually replace the Church as the only recognized spiritual guide in the hearts of disgusted followers.
Already, a too high percentage of Americans who identify as moral view abortion as a convenience.
President Trump is in the process of restoring the integrity of the U.S. government. The Council of Cardinals needs to do the same or risk losing the dwindling number of its remaining.
There’s a reason the pews are empty throughout Europe and bleeding adherents in America. Only a leadership that wants diminished congregants would continue destroying itself in this way.
The Framers understood the importance of the Church in giving life to the freedoms the Constitution endeavors to protect. John Adams, our nation’s second president left this quote for posterity:
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
We Exist By GOD✝️’s Will Alone.
The Evil In This World Has Deceived Mankind’s Heart.
This CREATION & This LIFE Mean More Than Any One Of Us Know.
