Pope Francis: Speak out - unless it's about child rape. Then you should keep quiet.

"It is up to you not to keep quiet," Pope Francis said. "Even if others keep quiet, if we older people and leaders -- so often corrupt -- keep quiet, if the whole world keeps quiet and loses its joy, I ask you: Will you cry out?"

Speak up!

Ummm... unless it's about child rape. Then silence is best:

“With people who do not have good will, with people who seek only scandal, who seek only division, who seek only destruction, even within families,” the answer is “silence. And prayer.”

Pope Francis has declined to comment on a growing scandal after a former Vatican official claimed the pontiff ignored sexual abuse allegations against a senior clergyman and called on him to resign.

I think this guy's character and motivations have been revealed pretty clearly. The logical disconnect, and cognitive dissonance suggest that he, and those pulling his strings live in a complete bubble.

"Even if others keep quiet, if we older people and leaders -- so often corrupt -- keep quiet, if the whole world keeps quiet and loses its joy, I ask you: Will you cry out?"

Indeed!
