Right.

Pope Francis should charged for all the thing he did in Pennsylvania and other states.

But why is previous pope, this rottweiler pope not culpable, and this polish pope? While it obvious that pope Frank has not addressed the issue seriously enough, but what did the previous popes do?

I am smelling some politicking here.

Though I think that the catholic world needs a young pope to cleanup the magna cacca. ;)
You've missed the point of the thread, this isn't something that's just happened, it's been in work for the last hundred years or more. IMHO it a movement like what happened to the Anglican Church, progressive.

Forget tradition, become acceptable to the others.

As for Pope Francis, he's just a dupe, being managed by the Gay community. To my knowledge he's not been accused of anything other then enabling progressives.

If you read Vigano's letters, he doesn't accuse Francis of being gay, rather Francis enables progressives in their efforts to Protestantize the church.

Let's look the 'Smaller and Purer' of 'Pope Benedict XVI' :
Quote:
"A smaller but purer Church"?
By Joseph A. Komonchak
October 21, 2010
https://www.commonwealmagazine.org/smaller-purer-church

The phrase above is often attributed to Pope Benedict XVI. I have just googled it but not found it as his own expression, although many people attribute the idea to him. For example, in a story at the time of his election, I find this reference to our own David Gibson: "He has said himself that he wanted a smaller but purer church, Gibson said, referring to Ratzingers suggestion that Christianity may need to become smaller, in terms of its cultural significance, to remain true to itself." In Davids book, The Rule of Benedict, there is a reference to the phrase in the context of a discussion of Ratzingers criticism of the German hierarchy during the Second World War for having allowed concern for institutional security to dull its awareness of what was going on under the Nazis. David writes:

" Ratzinger says there was a German core that did remain faithful to Catholicism, but as cardinal and pope he would return to the theme of the dangers of privileging institutional ties, emphasizing that the church would do better to shed bricks and mortar universities, hospitals, parochial schools, and the like rather than have them animated by anything less than a purely orthodox faith. This is an element of his oft-cited preference for a "smaller but purer" church of the holy remnant. This preference for the minimum, the creed of the classical conservative he remains, would manifest itself in many ways, notably in an ingrained suspicion of national bishops conferences, which he saw in wartime Germany and later as acting in national-self-interest rather than in the interests of worldwide Catholicism."

This reference could suggest an argument along these lines: If the Catholic Church in Germany under the Nazis had been smaller but purer (e.g., if there had been more people like Franz Jgersttter and fewer like his bishop), it would have provided a greater Christian witness against Hitlers totalitarian regime than it did. I would agree with such an argument. Similarly, the massive institutional structure and apparatus of the Church can seriously compromise the freedom and eagerness of the Church to follow Christ as much as his possessions led the rich young man to depart saddened from his encounter with Christ because he had demanded that he sell all that he have, give it to the poor, and follow him along a path that would end at Calvary.But I would like to be able to consult the place or places in which Ratzinger/Benedict speak of this "smaller but purer church"? Can anyone help?

Rev. Joseph A. Komonchak, professor emeritus of the School of Theology and Religious Studies at the Catholic University of America, is a retired priest of the Archdiocese of New York.
There's a movie here viewtopic.php?f=8&t=20342&p=341000#p341000

Showing what Ratzinger was asking for.

Finally, why do I say 'Good' to 'Federal probe into US Catholic Church', because the church needs a house cleaning by an outside source, I don't trust the Hierarchy.

Then it wouldn't be "Smaller but purer".

Are you describing yourself or Trump now? :lol:

But I would not use word pure in any connection with Trump though.

Neither, altho the purer would be good for both of us.

Now back to the thread's intent, finding ways to rid the church of the vipers who are ruling the roost.

Yipee!

Maybe they'll clean out the vipers.

And in line with the above, the church is backing off it's LGBT adoption.
