Clash: Damian Thompson Resigns As Editor in Chief Of Catholic Herald

Damian Thompson, editor-in-chief of the Catholic Herald announced (Twitter, July 4) that “the new owners” and he “do not agree on the future direction of the company.”

The Catholic Herald is owned by the British businessman Rocco Forte, a non-practicing Catholic, and German born Princess Michael of Kent. Both are very much part of the British establishment.

To explain his stance, Thompson pointed to his interview with Raymond Arroyo last week on EWTN where he criticised the forthcoming Amazonian Synod and called to “cancel this wretched ‘synod’.“

Thompson will do weekly podcasts for The Spectator, where he is an assistant editor, and be “free to tell you what I really think”.

His “first tweet as a free man” criticized Francis concerning the new Viganò revelations,

“It’s now obvious that Pope Francis is deeply implicated in terrible scandals. My concern isn’t theological: it’s the spectacle of a corrupt pope, something I never expected to see in my lifetime.”

J'ai parlé face à face avec le cardinal Nichols des scandales liés à François, expliquant que l'intégrité du Pape a été mise en doute. J'ai dit : « Vous êtes un cardinal. Vous devriez poser des questions. » Je ne peux pas répéter sa réponse, mais j'ai été impressionné par sa politesse. »

When I learned of Mr. Thompson's position at the Herald I was shocked, and thrilled by his presentation with Mr. Arroyo last week. It was too good to last.

I'm really disappointed that he's left the Herald. It was easily the best Catholic newspaper. Now it'll become a slightly more conservative National.Catholic Reporter, tipping it's hat to the Vatican

Sounds like it was a good move on his part. Seems he has not been able to speak his mind or the truth for a long time.

What Church elites want: mince language, avoid criticism and swallow crows.
What we do: rock the boat
