One of the most problematic aspects of Pope Francis’ pontificate has been his promotion and support for prelates who undermine Church teaching.


There are numerous examples, but today on Episode 5 of The John-Henry Westen Show, I’m going to talk about one of the most disturbing and prominent cases.


Cardinal Godfried Danneels died on March 14 this year. We must pray earnestly that God has mercy on his soul, because he is very much in need of such prayers.


Cardinal Danneels should have been one of the most controversial prelates in the Catholic Church, not only for his opposition to Catholic teaching,but especially in our times because he was caught on tape in 2010 telling a victim of pedophile sexual abuse by a bishop friend of his not to go public with the abuse. But, as I explain on today’s show, Cardinal Danneels was in the limelight with Pope Francis.
