The Deep State Church mastered the art of crisis management talking points. Make no mistake that the diocese media consultants carefully synchronized their statements about the Cardinal Theodore McCarrick sex abuse debacle. The purpose of crisis management is to contain the scandal and thwart any further disclosures of wrongdoing.
Last week, the Catholic twitter verse was chattering about Bishop Thomas Tobin’s embarrassing, but appropriate questionto Cardinal Kevin Farrell.Bishop Thomas Tobin of Rhode Island, (not to be confused with Cardinal Joseph Tobin of Newark), called out Cardinal Kevin Farrell for his gratuitous comments that priests have no credibility when it comes to instructing couples on marriage. Bishop Tobin tweeted a pertinent question to Cardinal Farrell, who is the head of the Vatican Dicastery on Laity, Family and Life.

**The often repeated plea of clergy abuse victims who viewed their priest abuser as an alter Christus.
Moments after the news broke that the Archdiocese of New York found credible child sex abuse allegations against Cardinal Emeritus Theodore McCarrick of Washington, D.C., another shoe dropped.
Catholics would learn that the Church has settled with more victims of Fr. Ted McCarrick!

Surprise, Surprise! Cardinal Emeritus Theodore McCarrick of Washington, D.C. is removed from ministry based on a credible allegation of sexual abuse of a minor some 45 years ago.
Lady Justice is delayed, but not denied?
This case raises serious questions for clergy abuse victims.
Every clerical coverup needs an enforcer who staunchly defends the accused, threatens the victims, shuts down debate, and intimidates anyone dares to speaks out.
Francis personally assumed the enforcer role in the Bishop Barros coverup.
For the last 3 years, the world watched Francis, the papal bully, as he scolded, demeaned, stonewalled, deceived, and lashed out at anyone who criticized his appointment of Chilean Bishop Juan Barros.
“It is the Argentine attitude: Suppress and ignore”—V.S. Naipaul
' Pope Francis was quoted telling the Chile abuse victims.
No. You weren’t part of the problem... you are the entire problem. You appointed and elevated a predator protector. For three years, you steadfastly protected him, despite overwhelming evidence that he should be removed as Bishop and from priestly ministry.
You suppressed and ignored a tsunami of requests, pleas and evidence about Bishop Juan Barros’ complicity and involvement with predator priest, Fr. Fernando Karadima. was removed from his priestly duties and banished to a life of penitence, after a guilty finding at the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
For those of you fed up with the treatment of faithful clergy and laity who uphold the Catholic dogma and faith, it’s time to dialogue in the spirit of Pope Francis!
The latest sacking of the highly esteemed American theologian Fr. Thomas Weinandy, O.F.M., Cap. by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops for his letter of correction to Pope Francis demands a response from the laity.

Read the weaselly, lightening-quick response from the USCCB here and here.
Despite the incessant papal dialogue drumbeat, there is no dialogue, only dismissals.

The Pope of Dialogue has thus far slammed the bronze doors of St. Peter’s on any dialogue on the issue of global warming. (Many Catholics argue that everything else is up for dialogue with this Pope, though).
Despite his incessant rantings about the need to dialogue, climate change is off limits. In the words of his global warming maestro, Bishop Sanchez Sorondo, climate change is elevated to “magisterium,” deserving of an apostolic exhortation and papal endorsement of the globalists’ precious Paris Climate Treaty. Francis joined the globalist cop-out chorus of the “science is settled.” His global warming architect, Bishop Sorondo scolds the global warming doubters “saying that we need to rely on coal and oil is like saying that the earth is not round. It is an absurdity dictated by the need to make money.” Sorondo also repeats the lame classic globalist slam that the deniers are funded by the oil industry.
Wake up, there is simply no dialogue with this Vatican on any issue, not endorsed by the United Nations’ globalists and its bureaucrats.

How stupid does the Vatican think we are? The contempt for which they hold the laity knows no bounds. The people of God are treated like ignorant sheep who are on a need to know basis and they need to know nothing.
Silence the sheep.
