Francis Frustrates Critics

With this:

I read the statement this morning and, sincerely, I must say this to you and anyone interested: Read that statement attentively and make your own judgment. I think the statement speaks for itself, and you have a sufficient journalistic ability to make a conclusion.

It bothered at least one of my facebook friends: why doesn’t he just deny the accusation?

To me it seems he doesn’t want to get involved in a back-and-forth. That kind of discussion fuels internet energy. Pope Francis hasn’t been accused in any kind of court. And Archbishop Viganò hasn’t exactly been forthcoming either. When contacted by journalists, he verified the statement but offered no additional comment.
