October 26, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) On Sunday, Pope Francis announced he is elevating Washington, D.C. Archbishop Wilton Gregory, to the rank of cardinal.
The announcement came just ten days ahead of the U.S. presidential election and the day before the U.S. Senate vote to confirm President Donald Trumps Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Pope Francis, who cited election proximity when denying a meeting to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in September, also took veiled shots at Trump in a new documentary in which he was featured. That documentary, Francesco, was released on October 22.
Gregory, arguably one of Trumps most vocal critics in the American Catholic hierarchy, made headlines when he harshly condemned the presidents June visit to D.C.s Saint John Paul II National Shrine. The visit had been long-planned. Gregory had been invited, although his statement condemning Trump and the shrine did not mention that.
I find it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself to be so egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles, which call us to defend the rights of all people even those with whom we might disagree, said Gregory in a statement released the very hour of Trumps visit.
Gregory will be the first black U.S. cardinal, but one of the most deeply anti-family, anti-life cardinals in history. Listed below are Gregorys worst assaults on marriage, the sanctity of life, and the Church over his long, scandalous career as a prelate.

So what else is new? For what it’s worth, you have my sincere sympathy.
Kiss the catholic church as we knew it goodbye.
The Marxist pope has packed the college of cardinals with carbon copies of himself. The church is just the latest institution taken over by the left.
The long march through the institutions has been a phenomenal success!
it will fail. Satan has tried in the past and failed. He will fail again.
why? Not due to any earthly reasons, but Christ looks to see that even if the overseer strays, Christ’s bride, the Catholic church doesn’t stray.
Hang on - Bergoglio will be gone soon.
Some of these connections are very thin threads.
