Pope to Bishops: Do as You Please, But Say Nice Stuff and the Media with Cover for You

Some facts withheld by the mainstream U.S. media:

– Pope Francis has sponsored only 6 refugee families although the Vatican owns thousands of apartments in Rome.
– Over 800 U.S faith communities provide sanctuary for immigrants but not the American bishops although they own an estimated 70,000 buildings.
– Pope Francis gives only 20% of billions earmarked for charity to the poor.
– Catholic Charities of Chicago gives only 27% of its revenue to the poor.
– Pope Francis has packed the Vatican with vulture capitalists.
– Many U.S. bishops use “Catholic Foundations” to hide their assets and investments.

Chicago Cardinal Blasé Cupich is “the American point person for Pope Francis.” Cupich often acts as his mouthpiece, defender and envoy.

Cupich had a private audience with Pope Francis last May 17, less than a month before the U.S. bishops held their spring meeting. Under discussion was the document, “Faithful Citizenship,” a voting guide issued every four years by the United State Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) since 1976, last revised in 2015.
