Under-attack Pope calls for 'silence and prayer'
The pope has so far refused to respond to allegations made last month that he for years covered up sexual abuse allegations against a prominent US cardinal.
"With people who lack goodwill, with people who seek only scandal, who seek only division, who seek only destruction, even within the family: (there is nothing but) silence. And prayer," Francis said during a service at St Martha's, the boarding house where he stays.

You can't blame Old Nick for everything. He's done his time.

remember when pope francis reinstated the pederast priests defrocked by pope benedict because (francis said) anyone can be forgiven

Pope Francis to Sicily's mafia: You cannot believe in God and be Mafiosi
evidently in francis's worldview, you can believe in God and be a pederast

What can you expect from the GUTTER press. It's the kind of stuff that FOX feeds its followers.

Funny how critical faculties can be turned off at the flick of a switch.

Pope Francis: Don’t use logic of the ‘Great Accuser’ who doesn’t know ‘mercy’
I want to know why mercy is given to pederasts but not mafia warlords
Francis said that instead of destroying others, Christians must look at themselves and accuse themselves so that they may reflect God’s mercy upon others.
“Yes, accuse yourself. It will do you good. The only licit accusation that we Christians have is to accuse ourselves. For others, there is only mercy because we are children of the father who is merciful,” the pope said.

You are working on two different levels here. Compare the latter with your current evil empire (there is always one).
