Vatican Spokesman Resigns Abruptly Amid Preparation For 2019 Fallout From Sex Abuse Crisis


The Vatican spokesman and his deputy resigned Monday to the surprise of the Vatican communication team amid preparations for Pope Francis’ summit on sex abuse.

Francis accepted the resignations of Vatican spokesman Greg Burke and his deputy Paloma Garcia Ovejero, effective Jan. 1, despite facing continued fallout from the Catholic Church’s global sex abuse crisis. The timing of the resignations sparked concerns that there may be problems with Francis’ efforts to overhaul Vatican bureaucracy, throwing the church into further tumult as Francis prepares for an important February summit on sex abuse with the presidents of bishops conferences from around the world.

“What’s more, given the standard rule of crisis communications that you don’t leave in the middle of the storm, but ride it out, to lose both the Vatican’s top press hands (both quite devout) in mid-scandal appears to signal that something has become professionally untenable,” tweeted Catholic commentator and writer Rocco Palmo.

Paolo Ruffini, head of Vatican communication, also noted that Francis will need a strong communication team to weather the continuing controversy over what sex abuse survivors, advocates and Catholic lay-faithful see as his failure to adequately address sex abuse and cover-up allegations in the church, including allegations against himself.

“The year ahead is full of important appointments that will require maximum communications efforts,” Ruffini said, according to The Associated Press.  more here

  1. Indian medical student kicked out of college by racist white professors for questioning their SJW beliefs

    Kieran Ravi Bhattacharya was a medical student at the University of Virginia and he has been kicked out after having questioned his white college professor’s SJW beliefs.

    Here is the audio of the lecture where he questioned his professor’s SJW beliefs:

    He speaks from 28:45 to 34:00

    Here is the audio of the suspension hearing:

    Here is a picture of the people who were at the suspension hearing:

    Notice how 14 out of the 16 people at that suspension hearing are white people. If this is not an act of racism against a sincere indian medical student, then I don’t know what is. Look at their smug arrogant faces as they kick him out for DARING to question their SJW beliefs.

    His twitter is if you want to ask him questions or set up an interview with him

    Already the media is beginning to cover it:

    It has been discussed endlessly on Reddit, 4chan, and various message boards. This is THE next big story. So if you run this story on your blog, it will serve to draw a lot of traffic to your blog as well. The story will expose the truth about how our univerisites are SJW and communist indoctrination centers.

  2. He’s outta here when he hoid the Pope respond with:
    Fallout? Re-insert and shorten the stroke!

  3. A damned shame the FBI doesn’t look into the NEA and AFT.
    But, being Demonrat bastions, I guess they’re off-limits.

    Good thing the Church is opposed by the nihilistic totalitarians (world-wide) or we’d never hear about them, either.

    izlamo delenda est …

  4. Always a great debate over who has been the worst POTUS.
    This jackass does not even qualify to warrant in the debate as worst POPE.
    IPSA bitch he is, already is.
