Not fake news, but make news
It’s not fake news, I grant, but it is make-news: (CNN)–The Vatican refused to answer questions on Monday about whether it will take any disciplinary action against Cardinal Keith O’Brien of Scotland, who apologized Sunday for sexual impropriety.
Sounds pretty suspicious, that.
But of course the Vatican refused to answer questions about O’Brien’s future. Per Canon 1405 § 1, “It is solely the right of the Roman Pontiff himself to judge … 2º cardinals.” Solely. Himself. Roman Pontiff. Cardinal. Thing is, we don’t have a Roman Pontiff, aka “pope”, just now.
It’s been in all the papers, ya’know? + + +
