THE KIKOS' O'MALLEY CONUNDRUM



The kikos are all excited about a recent papal quip which they have interpreted to be an exoneration of their man (Apuron).

On January 18, speaking of a Chilean bishop accused of colluding with a priest-abuser to cover up his crimes, a bishop who happens to also be the pope's personal friend and appointee, the pope told a reporter: “The day they bring me proof against Bishop Barros, I’ll speak," Pope Francis told the reporter. "There is not one shred of proof against him. It’s all calumny. Is that clear?”

Ah yes. This comports well with the drumbeat use of the same word (calumny) by Apuron and his handlers in responding to his own accusations. 

However, there is ONE BIG DIFFERENCE. Well two, actually. First, there is the fact that the Chilean Bishop (Barros) was NOT accused of personally sexually molesting anyone, but only in colluding with a cover up. Apuron, of course, has been accused of not only molesting, but raping. 

But the big difference is that the accusation against Barros has already been discredited by a Chilean court, while Apuron has demanded that the accusations against him NEVER GET TO COURT!


One would think that, now, with the pope backing a bishop who has been exonerated in a court of law, that Apuron would be wildly desirous of the same opportunity. Yet, he demands that the cases against him be dismissed! Apuron does NOT want his day in court. Now why would that be?

Also, the kikos should think carefully about getting too excited about the pope's position on the matter. Next to Filoni, the kikos best friend is Cardinal Sean O'Malley. O'Malley, the Archbishop of Boston, is also the Chairman of Domus Jerusalem, Inc., the "non-profit" which raised the money to build Kiko's personal "Vatican," the Domus Galilaeae Center in Israel on the banks of the Sea of Galilee.



O'Malley is a regular at the big Kiko-shindigs there (and other places). He wrote glowingly about one of those shindigs here. He also posted a nice little pic with some familiar faces:


And O'Malley, who is also the pope's personal appointee to head the Vatican commission on sex abuse, did not have kind words for Francis' quip in support of his South American buddy:

It is understandable that Pope Francis’ statements yesterday in Santiago, Chile were a source of great pain for survivors of sexual abuse by clergy or any other perpetrator. Words that convey the message “if you cannot prove your claims then you will not be believed” abandon those who have suffered reprehensible criminal violations of their human dignity and relegate survivors to discredited exile.
