The Dam Is Bursting: US Bishop Calls Accusation Against Francis “Credible”

The dam is bursting after former Washington nuncio Carlo Maria Viganò revealed that Pope Francis chose to ignore Cardinal Theodore McCarrick's homosexual abuses.

Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, has now called for a thorough investigation and urges actions against all those found guilty even at the highest levels of the Church [Pope Francis].

Writing on DioceseOfTyler.org (August 26), Strickland expressed his conviction that Francis is guilty,

“Let us be clear that they are still allegations but as your shepherd I find them to be credible.“

Radulf your sophistry is as excellent as your arguments. Wake up. Good morning.
Radulf
@Rafał_Ovile Your English is just as bad as your logic. Good night.
Rafał_Ovile
Radulf referring to adversaries specific arguments is prerequisite of Catholic dialogue.
At the expense of my time I have provided you with true Catholic spiritual work of mercy. You will bear the responsibilty before God whether you accept it or not. Good night...

Rafał_Ovile This is my final word in this discussion: Bergoglio is the rebel, not me. He rebels against Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. And I completely reject this revolution. That's all I have to say about it.

@CarolineA03 I will check what you said about the Borgia's. He wasn' t a heretic. That' s a fact. What I hate about Bergoglio are not his sins (which are not my business!) but …More

@CarolineA03 I will check what you said about the Borgia's. He wasn' t a heretic. That' s a fact. What I hate about Bergoglio are not his sins (which are not my business!) but his attacks on the faith and the faithful (which affect all catholics).

@Radulf Actually Pope Borgia was not as bad as he is falsely reported to be. (and he definitely wasn't a Heretic!) It is said that he was slandered at the time of his Papacy, due to the fact that he was a Spaniard and the Italians objected to it & wanted him to be sent away from Rome so that one of their OWN race could be put in his place.

It is not true about Lucrezia Borgia being evil either.…More

It is not true about Lucrezia Borgia being evil either. Another whopper! The real Lucrezia Borgia was a saintly woman, known for her charity, she is known historically as being a good woman, not the sinner that slanderous accounts have painted her to be . When she died her entire town and her loving husband sincerely mourned for her .
As with Pope Pius XII, for merely political motivations, a deliberate black legend was created around them to manipulate public mindsets against them.

From the Catholic Encyclopedia.
"She is known henceforth, and till her death in 1519, as a model wife and princess, lauded by all for her amiability, her virtue, and her charity. Nothing could well be more different from the fiendish Lucrezia Borgia of the drama and the opera than the historical Duchess of Ferrara. "
www.newadvent.org/cathen/01289a.htm

PS Actually we NEED Pope Borgia now! His personal sins are never recorded as being forced upon Christ's Church as new policies. Borgia was humble enough to know that the true teachings of the Church were needing to be upheld. Whatever sins he commited during his Papacy - his reign preserved what had been handed down to him through antiquity.

Radulf I don't contest the duty to resist heresy and material heretics. If you read my comments carefully I advocate for methods provided by the Church. Rather than i.e. protestant revolution in an anarchical manner.

If anyone recognizes pope Benedict then he should not brake the law of non-contradiction of classical logic before his decease. And Bp. Gracida recognized pope BXVI... Otherwise …More

@Rafał_Ovile I respect the office of the pope very much. And it is just because of my respect for the office that I can't respect the person who is occupying the seat of St. Peter. Rather than carefully preserving and explaining the catholic faith and morals he is demolishing everything and he acts as if the catholic Church is his property and he could do with it whatever he wants.

A retired bishop, bishop Rene Gracida even wanted a new conclave, because he is convinced that his election is invalid. Is that wrong too?

Radulf there is also Church authority and Petrine Office constituted by God Himself which has been given in the hands of sinners. A metaphysical differentiation is necessary between the sinner and his sin and highest legislator and his Office in order not to harm the Office by hurting the sinner in a rude manner.

Radulf there is also Church authority and Petrine Office constituted by God Himself which has been given in the hands of sinners. A metaphysical differentiation is necessary between the sinner and his sin and highest legislator and his Office in order not to harm the Office by hurting the sinner in a rude manner. It is a fact that Cardinal Bergoglio was elected by Cardinals who showed disloyalty to pope Benedict during numerous attacks on the pope. Moreover, they failed to discern that they are electing the second "pope" to share Petrine Office. There is information that Card. Bergoglio aimed to clarify that dilemma of two popes being. Now they don't even try to admonish the sinner out of mercy which is their duty as Princes of the Church. Faithful at the bottom of hieriarchy should rather objectize the complicated crisis than trash talk. Also pray that Church will recognize pope Benedict, pray for him, implement his teaching and example on reverence of the Real Presence of God and classical liturgy etc. to come out of chaos returning to Tradition...

A shepherd who protects the wolves and chases the sheep away and hits them with his stick is no shepherd, but an evil intruder which should be excluded from the Church.
Radulf
@Rafał_Ovile : Respect is something you have to earn. Borgiaglio has absolutely no respect for the catholic faith and for loyal catholics. The only thing he can do is divide, calling people names and sowing doubt and confusion. He is the enemy.
Rafał_Ovile
Campion the Champion try to distinguish between subjective and objective otherwise you will continue in your disability to dialogue and reason.
Rafał_Ovile
Campion the Champion I'm Catholic and try to dialogue catholic otherwise change forums, i.e heretical protestant which have similar views and use analogous semantics.
One more comment from Rafał_Ovile
Rafał_Ovile
Radulf don't be cynical and anarchical. There is also the authority of the Church and Petrine Office in Catholic Ordo requiring elementary respect and protection.
Radulf
Did I say Bergoglio? Excuse me. I meant Borgiaglio.....

Ask Bergoglio to resign here

Dear Priests, Deacons, Religious and all Holy Faithful of the Diocese of Tyler,

A letter (see below) by Archbishop Vigano, former Nuncio to the United States, raises grave allegations and calls for the resignation of numerous high ranking prelates including Pope Francis.

Let us be clear that they are still allegations but as your shepherd I find them to be credible. Using this standard the response must be a thorough investigation similar to those conducted any time allegations are deemed to be credible. I do not have the authority to launch such an investigation but I will lend my voice in whatever way necessary to call for this investigation and urge that it’s findings demand accountability of all found to be culpable even at the highest levels of the Church.

As this unfolds I urge all in the Diocese of Tyler to pray fervently for Holy Mother Church and beg the Intercession of Our Blessed Mother. We are the flock of Jesus Christ. He is Lord of His Church and His Holy Spirit will guide us through this darkness.

Almighty God Father, Son and Spirit have mercy on your Church and cleanse her in the fires of your Love.

Blessed Virgin Mary, Pray for us
All Sainted Popes & Bishops in Heaven, Pray for us
All Holy Men and Women, Pray for us

I direct all priests to include this notice in the masses on August 26, and post it on their websites and other social media immediately.

Most Reverend Joseph E. Strickland
Bishop of Tyler
