Pope Francis's "Enemies List," the Enforcer O'Malley and Listees: Dolan, Finn & Pell?

Did Cardinal Sean O'Malley just turn in Cardinal Timothy Dolan for sex abuse cover-up because he is a really good guy or because he is Pope Francis's "enemies list" enforcer?

Journalist Hillary White on May 7, 2015 for LifeSiteNews.com revealed that liberal Vatican expert John Allen suggested that there was a Francis “enemies list":

"The suspicion that [Bishop Robert] Finn is the victim of an 'ideological purge' was put forward recently not by conservatives but by John Allen, the former star of NCR, now associate editor of Crux, the Catholic news magazine of the Boston Globe. Shortly after the close of the 2014 Synod, Allen wrote of the possibility that Finn was one member of an 'enemies list' held by Pope Francis, of those prominent prelates who would oppose a swing to the left in the Church."

"These, Allen suggested, might include Finn; Paraguayan bishop Rogelio Ricardo Livieres Plano, like Finn a member of Opus Dei; and Mario Oliveri of Albenga in northern Italy who, also like Finn, has been a strong supporter of the traditional, pre-Vatican II Latin Mass."

“'Despite the different details, many observers can’t help noticing that all three prelates have one obvious thing in common: Each is among the most conservative members of their respective bishops’ conferences,' Allen wrote."

"John Allen quoted veteran Italian Vatican journalist Marco Tosatti, who has spoken of a wider 'witch hunt' directed at conservatives, calling it 'an internal war … being waged in the name of the pope.'”

Even liberal Jerry Slevin on May 9, 2015 for Christian Catholicism revealed that O’Malley and Francis turned Finn in despite the fact that the two's "reported records on child protection ... are hardly better than Finn’s":

"It is important to keep in mind that the reported records on child protection of the pope and his “child protection czar”, Boston’s Cardinal O’Malley, are hardly better than Finn’s. Please see “Vatican Defends the Chilean Appointment”  here,  BishopAccountability.org . See also BishopAccountability.org’s report on the pope’s response to the abuse crisis as archbishop; Victims ignored by Cardinal Bergoglio; Bergoglio’s statement that he never dealt with a guilty priest; Summary of case of convicted Argentine priest Julio César Grassi, including Cardinal Bergoglio’s effort to exonerate him. And see also the reported weak child protection record of O’Malley, head of the pope’s new “go slow” advisory abuse commission ,  “Six Ways Cardinal Sean O’Malley Has Mishandled the Abuse Crisis” here, http://www.bishop-accountability.org/OMalley_Fact_Sheet.htm"

"... Speaking to CBS News’ 60 Minutes as early as November 14, 2014, as shown in  a preview here of his interview, O’Malley had agreed that under the Catholic Church’s zero-tolerance policy, he wouldn’t let Finn even teach Sunday school in Boston, let alone head a diocese. O’Malley added on CBS 'It’s a question the Holy See needs to address urgently …. There’s a recognition of that from Pope Francis, …'. Francis did not address Finn urgently for sure! Indeed, he appears to have acted mainly and precipitously primarily to distract from the pope’s own Bishop Barros blunder."

"This raises related questions like why have no bishops in the world so far been convicted and imprisoned for covering up child abuse? Are they all innocent? What do you think? Indeed, some US conservative Catholics have suggested recently that the 'resigned' Bishop Robert Finn had been ideologically singled out, noting that Bishop Finn was removed from his diocese and is now being almost universally reviled as a 'criminal' and a shielder of sex-abuse. These special pleaders, shamefully, point out that Finn never covered up physical molestation of young people by a priest, and has never been charged with that, they point out, as other bishops have been. One has to wonder whether these Finn apologists have children?"

"At the same time, one conservative fairly noted, that Belgium Cardinal Godfried Danneels, after being shown to have personally covered up for a bishop who for years had sexually assaulted his own nephew, has been allowed to retire honorably at the normal retirement age, from his position as the enormously powerful head of the archdiocese of Brussels, Belgium. Moreover, last year, Danneels was personally invited by Pope Francis to consult at the initial Synod of Bishops on the Family.

To put it bluntly, according to this conservative Catholic’s claims, Finn never shielded a priest-abuser;  Danneels did, for years. But Finn’s out and Danneels is invited to important conferences by the pope."

Most people don't remember that thirteen cardinalsincluding Cardinals Dolan and George Pellchallenged Pope Francis decisions in the 2015 Synod on the Family. And just by coincidence, as was the case with Finn and Paraguayan bishop Plano, Dolan and Pell while not members of Opus Dei are closely associated with OP (Also, Opus Dei member Greg Burke just quit as Vatican press director after OP collaborator Dolan was turned in). Moreover, one of Francis's closest advisors ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick was turned in by Dolan.

Did O'Malley turn Dolan in because he was on Francis's enemies list for turning in Francis collaborator McCarrick, challenging the 2015 Francis Synod and being in league with Opus Dei?

Did Opus Dei collaborator Pell get turned in to the secret trial in Australia because he criticized Francis's radical environmentalism for which O'Malley is a prime promoter?

Many people are, also, not aware that O’Malley is part of a radical environmentalist Francis inner circle which was probably unhappy with Pell when he took "the unusual step of criticizing Pope Francis’ groundbreaking environmental encyclical, arguing the Catholic Church has 'no particular expertise in science.'"

Guess who was on the radical environmentalist Tony Annett's Twitter thread five days before his February 17 Twitter attack on EWTN's Raymond Arroyo?

Guess which national Catholic television network OP expert Randy Engel says is associated with Opus Dei?

If you guessed it is EWTN you are right, but if you guessed it was Francis's "mouthpiece" and close collaborator Antonio Spadaro who retwitted the Annett attack on EWTN's Arroyo who was on the Twitter thread five days before you are wrong.

It was the apparently radical environmentalist Cardinal Sean O' Malley.

O' Malley on February 12 on the Annett thread said "[E]nvironmental justice and what needs to be done to address this real and compelling challenge."

Others that joined O'Malley on the thread were gay activist Fr. James Martin and radical environmentalist Jeffrey Sachs.

Was O'Malley endorsing Annett's radical environmentalism as well as the "detraction and calmuny" of that Twitter page?

The American Catholic had this to say of, it appears, one of O'Malley's favorite tweeter pages:

"Anthony Annett['s]... twitter page is especially full of nasty invective. A quick perusal of his twitter page that evidently detraction and calumny are not sins, at least according to Tony, but failure to hue 100% to his environmental policies and/or working for Heritage are."
(The American Catholic, "Will No One Rid Us Of These Turbulent Converts," August 15, 2017)

Twitter friends Annett and Sachs have together written a book on environmentalism called "The Significance of Laudato si." Guess who joined Annett collaborator Sachs at Columbia University for a environmentalist event?:

"Cardinal O’Malley and Dr. Sachs will help us to appreciate the concerns which moved Pope Francis to write the Laudato Si’ and the impact that the Encyclical is having in the political and economic world. This event is organized in collaboration with the Research Cluster on Science and Subjectivity in the Center for Science and Society at Columbia University."

Guess which environmentalist associates and Twitter friends of O'Malley joined Francis at a September 28, 2016 Vatican environmentalism event called the "one-day consultation, titled 'Laudato si' and the Path to COP22'"?:

Annett, McCarrick and Sachs (George Soros' "'longtime confidante and collaborator" as well as point man with the pope) were all in the Vatican "one-day consultation" on the environment encyclical probably written, at least in part, by Soros people such as Sachs. ("Sachs acknowledged that... [the encyclical] 'Laudato si made the adoption of both the passage of the ["universal access to abortion"] UN Substantial Development Goals in Sept. 2015 and the Paris Climate Agreement in December 2015 possible.'")

(Sorosfiles.com, by Elizabeth Yore, "The Pope's Boss," August 25, 2016 and Catholic Monitor, "Does Pope Francis Work for Soros & the UN," December 27, 2017)

Guess who wasn't at the Francis environment Vatican event with O'Malley's radical environmentalist associates and Twitter friends?

The anti-radical environmentalist Cardinal Pell wasn't invited. But, he would soon be getting an invitation to a secret trial in Australia.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 | cocatholicconference.org   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement.

The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
