Bishop Strickland: The Vatican Is More Interested In Silencing Viganò Than Addressing His Allegations

We find ourselves at a strange moment in Church history when Archbishop Viganò is excommunicated swiftly while Theodore McCarrick remains unexcommunicated after years of his crimes against the Church have come to light. We should look closely at a Vatican that operates in this manner.

Rather than addressing the serious questions and allegations Archbishop Viganò raises, he is summarily removed from the Church with an apparent motive to silence him. Meanwhile McCarrick and a lengthy list of others have promoted a culture that ignores or wants to change Church teachings and their voices are allowed and even overtly supported.

It seems we are left with only stones to cry out for justice because the voices of faithful disciples are mute, ignored or even silenced.
