I love the way the wording of the headline makes it looks like it was a “Vatican crackdown” (first and last words of headline).
The MSM is shameless, absolutely shameless.
Lest anyone think that “the mud is not going to stick,” I’ve got news for you: from now on, when the UN appoints a mass murderer to head up some human rights commission or refugee council, the MSM will instantaneously remind us of how the Vatican selected a pope with “connections” to the Argentine Dirty War.
Once again, the communist totalitarian antichrists trot out their "didn't do enough" libel.
ANYONE can be accused of "not doing enough", because "enough" is never defined.
Oh God, just like the Jews blame the Pope for not doing enough, EVEN THOUGH HE SAVED THOUSANDS OF JEWISH PEOPLE!!!!
