Tell Me About The Rabbits, Blase

“The Pope has a bigger agenda. He's got to get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the church. We're not going to go down a rabbit hole on this.”

Those were the words of Cardinal Blase Cupich of the Archdiocese of Chicago in the wake of credible accusations that Pope Francis had guilty knowledge of sexual misconduct within his inner circle and did nothing.

The Pope’s response to the assertion he did nothing is to say nothing.

The Cupich and Francis responses are telling in their familiar ring.

Both are ideological.

Cupich’s flacking is of the Weinstein variety: my work is too important to indulge distractions about my behavior.

Pope Francis’ imperious silence makes it clear he doesn’t answer to you.

The posturing of these two is more contrived than Jimmy Swaggart’s “I have sinned” sobbing.

Francis and Cupich are conducting themselves like politicians in damage control to protect their personal ambitions rather than as faith leaders tending to a wounded flock to protect the Church.

Cupich’s misdirection and Francis’ silence aren’t going to fly.

Nothing short of a complete accounting and a full reckoning for the horrors that were unleashed and excused inside the Catholic Church is acceptable.
