Pope Francis’ shocking dismissal of Bishop Joseph Strickland from the diocese of Tyler, Texas reveals the depth of the massive crisis facing the Catholic Church during Pope Francis’ pontificate. While Pope Francis protects clerical sex abusers like convicted rapist Fr. Marko Rupnik and honors pro-abortion celebrities such as Whoopie Goldberg, faithful prelates Bishop Strickland and Cardinal Burke are consistently targeted and then personally deposed by Pope Francis’ authoritarian hand. The Faith and Reason team assesses all of this and more.

At the press conference announcing the 2023 Rome Life Forum, attorney Liz Yore provided a shocking list of grievances experienced by victims of clerical sex abuse during Pope Francis’ pontificate. Yore contends that Pope Francis actively extends mercy and honor to clerical sexual predators — such as former cardinal Theodore McCarrick and disgraced Fr. Marko Rupnik — while ignoring the grave concerns expressed by clerical sex abuse survivors. Watch her speech at the LifeSite press conference as she outlines in powerful detail how Pope Francis continues to protect clerical sex abusers. Faithful Catholics have a right to know.
Fabrizia Raguso, a psychology professor and alleged abuse victim, signed an open letter denouncing the Diocese of Rome's statement that Rupnik's Aletti Center was home to 'a healthy community life without particular critical issues.'
Catholic Mutual Group accused the diocese led by dissident Cardinal Robert McElroy of knowing that numerous members of its clergy 'had proclivities toward sexual abuse of children such that coverage is precluded.'
