USA: Francis Names Only McCarricks Accomplices as Cardinals

Accomplices.
The selection of the cardinals appointed by Francis on Sunday shows a further politicisation of the College of Cardinals, and the appointment of the San Diego homosexualist McElroy has shaken the Church. Crisis magazine's editor-in-chief Eric Sammons notes a similarity between the five US cardinals appointed by Francis - Cupich, Farrell, Tobin, Gregory and now McElroy. They are all accomplices of disgraced Cardinal McCarrick.

Yet God Has Forbidden Homosex

Outlandish.
McElroy himself told AmericaMagazine on Tuesday that the synodical process should not exclude certain positions just because they go against a very long-standing discipline or teaching of the Church. As examples, he cited the Synod on the Family, which promoted remarriage after divorce. He also said that the Youth Synod had found that the Church's position - meaning divine revelation - on homosexuality was perceived as outlandish.

Also, the Catholics Have Fainted

Fainting.
54-year-old neo-cardinal Virgilio Da Silva of East Timor, who will be a papal elector for 26 years, was - quote - "surprised by his appointment." He told journalists on Monday, "When I heard this news, I was so shocked that I almost fainted." The small island state of 1.3 million people is 98 percent Catholic and very young. The average age of the population is 20.

Problems Remain Unsolved

Political Choice.
Indian Neo-Cardinal Anthony Poola of Hyderabad is a so-called "untouchable", a Dalit, as this group is called in the Indian caste system. He told CruxNow.com that his appointment could help heal the wounds of those who have been marginalised. But he also recalled the diocese of Salem, India, where a non-Dalit was appointed bishop in 2021 while many in the diocese wanted an untouchable and protested against the appointment. Poola is therefore not sure whether his appointment will really bring reconciliation.

Little Cardinals and Even Smaller Sycophants

Sycophants.
Blogger-Father John Zuhlsdorf said he laughed at the latest list of cardinals. Francis' intrigues are so obvious, he said, that they can no longer be taken seriously. What is coming now is the glorification of power, more modernism, the undermining of Catholic morality and a lot of talk about an ecclesiastical dawn. We are living in an era of little men, and those who hail them, are even smaller.

This means that he has punished McCarrick only in an apparent way.
