They really can’t be bothered to move fast on this one. Besides, the way the news cycles work, come February most people will have forgotten all about this. So why "go down a rabbit hole” right now? That “bigger agenda” is more important. Pope’s gotta canonize the rumored homosexual, Pope Paul VI. He's gotta "talk about the environment". He's gotta get the kids together for the...er...synod on young people.
And those sex abuse victims? Well, hell, they can wait! And that investigation into complicity can wait, too. Justice for wounded souls and vindication of good priests and bishops? That can totally wait!
Besides, it's not as if the Holy Father is going to address the root of the problem anyway. He doesn't even mention the rampant homosexuality in the clergy. So, why rush this thing?
Really, we’ve got to consider the possibility that this bizarre man was made pope, not because he’s smart, but precisely because he’s not. And he could thus be counted on to make a laughing stock of the papacy.
And it’s not just ‘rad trads’ who suspect this. Everyone who’s still breathing is, in fact, breathless over this monumental hubris in the Eternal City:
This is the work, not of mere mortals, but of Principalities and Power. This is a systematic attempt to destroy of the credibility and integrity of the papacy. Francis must resign now!
