Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Wow.  I didn’t think the “Uncle Teddy” scandal rocking Holy Mother Church could get much worse.  It just did:

In an extraordinary 11-page written testament, a former apostolic nuncio to the United States has accused several senior prelates of complicity in covering up Archbishop Theodore McCarrick’s allegations of sexual abuse, and has claimed that Pope Francis knew about sanctions imposed on then-Cardinal McCarrick by Pope Benedict XVI but chose to repeal them.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, 77, who served as apostolic nuncio in Washington D.C. from 2011 to 2016, said that in the late 2000s, Benedict had “imposed on Cardinal McCarrick sanctions similar to those now imposed on him by Pope Francis” and that Viganò personally told Pope Francis about those sanctions in 2013.

Read the whole thing.  The Archbishop calls for Frankie and everyone else mixed up in this filth to resign.  I’d second that heartily.**

(You’ll notice again, by the bye, that this story has virtually vanished from the mainstream media.)

UPDATE:  **If what Vigano says is true, of course.  People on whose judgements I rely say that he is solidly reliable.
