Francis repeats use of vile words associated with sexual perversion in a public forum
On November 9, 2013, this reporter wrote an Open Letter to Pope Francis "On a Papal Commission of Inquiry into Homosexuality, Pederasty and La Lobby Gay in the Catholic Church" http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/engel/131110. A member of the pope's Council of Eight brought the Open Letter to the attention of the pontiff, and a short time later the Vatican announced the creation of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors (and vulnerable adults).
At the end of my 2013 Open Letter to Pope Francis, I wrote the following commentary regarding the use of the words "coprophilia" and "coprophagia" made in a news interview in 2012 by the then Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
It was, therefore, with a great sadness and deep sense of outrage that I saw that in the December 7, 2016, interview for the Belgian Catholic weekly, Tertio, the occupant of the Chair of Peter repeated the very same terms, coprophilia and coprophagia, in almost the same context that he used them more than four years ago in reference to the Roman Curia, before he became pope.
There is no question that the pope knew exactly what he was doing when he chose to deliberately link a disgusting and perverse nomenclature to the communication issue of false news. What other objective is there in doing such a dastardly deed than to desensitize the faithful to the horror of sexual perversion and to attempt to introduce perverted words and acts into normal Catholic parlance?
I called the pope out in 2013 in my Open Letter on this very subject, and I'm calling him out again in 2016.
Francis needs to offer a prompt apology, first to God and then to the faithful Catholics everywhere, for his misuse of the Papal Office to promulgate such perverted and degrading terminology in a public forum. I respectfully suggest, for his eternal welfare, that the apology come sooner than later.
Sincerely in Christ
