If PopeWatch had to choose the perfect symbol of this pontificate, Cardinal Cupich would be chosen:
In a television interview with NBC News, Cardinal Cupich commented on a recent 11-page statement by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former papal nuncio to the United States, that alleges a series of misdeeds by high-ranking Catholic prelates, including Pope Francis himself.
“The pope has a bigger agenda. He’s gotta get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the Church,” Cardinal Cupich said.
“We’re not going to go down a rabbit hole on this,” he added.
Who knew that Cardinal Cupich reads The Babylon Bee for talking points?
Go here to read the rest. Got it Cardinal. In your eyes the Pope’s left wing agenda is more important than whether he turned a blind eye to McCarrick pressuring seminarians for sexual favors. Later in the interview Cupich attempted to play the race card contending that the Pope’s critics don’t like him because he is a Latino. Where to begin? The Pope has critics around the globe. Latino is an American term rarely used in Latin America. The Pope is 100% Italian in blood, so arguing this is about race is ludicrous. Finally, only a completely delusional individual like Cupich could possibly contend that the critics of the Pope are motivated by racial or national animus. The Pope appoints left wing fools to misgovern mother Church would be typical of actual criticism directed towards the Pope rather than the complete bovine droppings that Cupich is attempting to peddle.
