Is the Pro-Gay "Asian Francis" Tagle who some say will be Francis II associated with Financial Corruption?

- Updated December 9, 2019

Philippine Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle is so in line with Francis's liberal agenda that he is called the "Asian Francis" and some are claiming he will be Francis II.

The pro-gay Tagle many believe is being groomed by the Francis Vatican to be the next pope.

Tagle was given the presidency of the pro-homosexual Caritas International after Francis's closest adviser and "vice pope" Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga stepped down from the office.
(Caritas.org, "Cardinal Tagle elected President of Caritas International")

Journalist Christine Niles reported that the Philippine Cardinal's organization is pro-gay:

"Caritas International... happens to be a member of the governing body of the World Social Forum - a Communist, pro-homosexual group."
(Church Militant, August 14, 2017)

According to the Catholic News Agency, Tagle "has a close relationship with" a "influential ecclesiastical figure in Guam" who is according a Vatican Insider article may have ties to "financial... scandals."
(Catholic News Agency, "Analysis: Gregory, Apuron, 'zero tolerance,' and pontifical secrets," April 4, 2019 and Vatican Insider La Stampa, "The Guam problem, a diocese rocked by financial and sexual scandal," 9/21/2017)

The Vatican Insider article reported that the Church figure was:

"Msgr. James Benavente... who boasts a close friendship with Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle... [the Cardinal is] subject of considerable criticism (and more than a little speculation) for some of his behaviors and especially for the luxury cars, houses (three acquired for himself)... first-class air travel, expensive restaurants and exclusive parties."

The article, moreover, says that there are "[h]eavy accusations against Monsignor Benevente" in which a "former secretary of the Finance Council of Guam Catholic Cemeteries" said:

"I have seen countless abuses of cemetery funds... Benavente also used $13,000 of the... funds to pay for the celebration of his 20th anniversary as a priest."

Now the story according to the Vatican Insider gets complicated as the now convicted gay pedophile Archbishop Anthony Apuron back then dismissed Benavente and also "dismissed [the allegedly gay] Father [Paul] Gofigan after having received complaints... the priest was living... with a former convict, Joseph Lastimoza... convicted of serious sexual crimes... [t]he removal of this priest, who was also the founder of the movement 'Rainbow Mercy' for young gay Catholics."

The article says Benavente "claimed to have important friendships within the FBI and powerful figures in the Vatican" and apparently he did.

It appears possible that Tagle with his close association to Francis may have gotten Francis to send Archbishop Savio Hon Tai-Fai as his personal representative to Guam to fix the situation.

The article says Archbishop Hon fixed the situation by doing the following:

"Benavente instead was given all previously held assignments with an added appointment for the Archdiocese's Patrimony" and "entrusted the cathedral to Fr. Paul Gofigan, who had been removed two years earlier."

It appears that the gay Archbishop Apuron is a unsavory character who should be laicized like the gay ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, but apparently, if the Vatican Insider article is credible, just as unsavory are the priests who were dismissed by him such as the allegedly gay priest and the close friend of the pro-gay Tagle who Francis appears to possibly be grooming to replace him.

If the Vatican Insider piece is true then it appears the events above are a cat fight in which all the unsavory characters involved are sleazy.

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

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
