Pope Francis accused of following the ‘homosexual agenda of the New World Order’ by prominent archbishop
A prominent archbishop has accused Pope Francis of adhering to the “homosexual agenda of the New World Order”, and said he allows “heresy, sodomy and corruption” in the Catholic Church.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano is an archbishop of the Catholic Church and former Vatican ambassador to the United States, who is well-known for his criticism of the Pope.
According to Premier Christian News, in a recent interview Vigano claimed that the leaders of the Catholic Church were “mercenary infidels who seek to scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves”.
The archbishop said that to Pope Francis “and his entourage, sodomy is not a sin that cries out for vengeance in the presence of God, as the Catechism teaches”.
Referring to the Pope by his real name, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Vigano added: “Bergoglio’s words on this topic – and even more the actions and words of those who surround him – unfortunately, confirm that an operation of legalisation of homosexuality is currently underway and that prelates and theologians are carrying this discussion forward who have manifested without equivocation that they are unfaithful to Catholic teaching.”
Vigano has previously accused church leaders of covering up allegations of sexual abuse against the now de-frocked cardinal Theodore McCarrick.
The archbishop believes that McCarrick is part of the “gay lobby” and that there is “close link between sodomy and paedophilia”, but accused Pope Francis of keeping silent on the issue “in order not to offend the current mentality that is widespread even among many prelates.”
Vigano added: “Let’s not forget that the legitimisation of homosexuality is part of the agenda of the New World Order, to which the Bergoglian church adheres openly and unconditionally – not only for its destabilising value in the social body but also because sodomy is the principal instrument with which the enemy intends to destroy the Catholic priesthood, corrupting the souls of the ministers of God.”
Although Pope Francis is certainly more open that his predecessors when it comes to LGBT+ rights, his stance has been confusing.
For example, in November, 2019, the Catholic leader condemned the persecution of gay people and compared the “hatred” to “Nazism” during a speech at the World Congress of the International Association of Penal Law.
Yet, just hours after his speech, Pope Francis gave a warm hug to a Muslim leader who thinks homosexuality is a disease and that gay people should be executed.
