Danneels-Gate 18: "The Vatican ‘Family synod’ and the Danneels/Vangheluwe sex abuse scandal that could engulf Pope Francis"

It’s possible, too, that Pope Francis has overestimated the liberalism of practising Catholics in the West [!]. Last year the bishops of England and Wales sent out a questionnaire to ‘facilitate’ reflections on the 2014 synod. The ‘summary of responses’ bears the fingerprints of lefty pressure groups — moaning about lack of funding for ‘justice and peace’ stunts and nostalgia for trendy liturgies. This may be the sort of thing Baldisseri and Forte want to read; but as a snapshot of parish life it is useless — and adds to the synod’s air of inauthenticity.

There’s also a lot of confusion. Many Synod Fathers are steering clear of factions because they want to stay loyal to the Pope. Yet they can’t work out what he really thinks. They like him but don’t know if they trust his judgment.

One decision really bothers them. Why did Francis ask Cardinal Godfried Danneels
[!], a retired Belgian archbishop, to join the assembly? Danneels maintains that the church ‘has never opposed the fact that there should exist a sort of “marriage” between homosexuals’. No other cardinal holds this batty view.

But that’s not the problem. In 2010, a man confided in Danneels that he had been abused by a bishop, Roger Vangheluwe. The cardinal, who didn’t know he was being tape-recorded, told him to shut up until after the bishop retired.

The victim was Bishop Vangheluwe’s nephew. And now the cardinal who tried to cover up the abuse has been invited by the Pope to a synod on the family. Also, very unhelpfully, he has just written a book claiming credit for getting Bergoglio elected. ‘The Danneels thing is the most troubling aspect of the synod,’ says a respected Catholic writer. ‘If the scandal breaks properly, it could blow the whole thing apart.’
