Francis Blocked Investigation of Abuse Claims Against [Liberal] Cardinal

Pope Francis ordered Cardinal Müller in 2013 to stop investigating allegations against Westminster Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor (+2017).

Marco Tosatti wrote this on September 24 referring to “a high-ranking” source in the Vatican. Francis has a history of protecting his liberal friends at any cost.

According to Tosatti the ongoing investigation against Murphy-O'Connor was the background of an incident when a furious Francis forced Cardinal Müller in June 2013 to interrupt Mass in order to talk to him at the phone.

A woman had accused Murphy-O'Connor of an involvement in abuses she had suffered from the notorious Father Michael Hill who was later imprisoned, mainly for having abused boys. Murphy-O'Connor supported Hill, gave him a position and paid his victims hush-money.

Murphy-O'Connor was a member of the Sankt Gallen mafia which organised the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

The woman whom Brighton diocese paid 40'000 pounds in 2000, contacted around 2010 Westminster Archbishop Nichols who, against the norms, refused to inquire.

Therefore the dioceses of Portsmouth and Northampton brought the case directly to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. But at the end Francis blocked everything.

Children are innocent and love justice, while most of us are wicked and naturally prefer mercy.

Murphy-O'Connor was told by a psychiatrist that Fr Michael Hill identified as a homosexual & that he did not see this as 'abnormal'. In later life Murphy-O'Connor caused public scandal by establishing "gay Masses' without insisting on chastity or agreeing with Church teaching.

Expert Damian Thomjpson on this case: "There are new claims that the late Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor abused a young woman. I'd be VERY surprised if this were true."
And, "If the Vatican can clear ++Cormac’s name, it must do so. I am *so* unconvinced by what’s been reported. Problem is: who believes anything the duplicitous Vatican says these days?"
