Breaking News: Reports that Pope Francis Covered Up Abuse Sound Very Much Like Recent Allegations Involving Bishop Shannon Johnston
In recent postings, I discussed allegations that recently surfaced that Episcopal bishop Shannon Johnston may have covered up accusations of sexual harassment involving an Episcopal priest under his supervision. The matter came to a head when the victim filed a complaint against Johnston with the national church.
The matter sounds very much like the breaking news involving Pope Francis, in which a former papal nuncio has submitted testimony claiming that Francis lifted restrictions imposed by Pope Benedict on Archbishop McCarrick.
