Wayne Madsen, in his article for Critical Culture Foundation, outlines that Francis’s enemies have challenged his powers that be due to his differing approach. Mr Madsen says that when Francis stated to clean up the Church of paedophile priests, he was charged by his right-wing enemies, take ining, Benedict, Maria Vigano, Raymond Burke, Steve Bannon, Oeuvre Dei, the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, of tolerating paedophiles and homosexuals in the church. Francis has endeavoured to thwart corruption in Vatican City, where corporate cash is many times funnelled to dodge regulations and tax. As Mr Madsen highlights, on October 1, 2019, Francis ordered Vatican watch to seize documents, computers, and portable electronic devices from the Vatican Secretary of Stately and the Financial Information Authority, the latter the financial watchdog of the Vatican.
In joining to these two offices, Francis has also placed the Institute of Religious Rouses (IOR), the so-called “Vatican Bank,” under increased supervision and control.
The IOR has been misused in the late for a number of covert operations, including the funding of several right-wing CIA-linked anarchist groups and death squads in Latin America.
Mr Madsen notes that Francis was also beneficial in denying former Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon the use of a 13th century hospice on May 31, the Certosa di Trisulti in Collepardo in central Italy, as a training academy for neo-fascist state operatives from around the world.
Bannon’s Brussels-based international “neo-fascisti” assortment, called ‘The Movement’ had made a deal with a group connected to Burke, the Alliance of Human Dignity, to lease the 800-room monastery for political raising.
The school proposed by Bannon was, in Francis’s view, a blatant targeting of his papacy and the left-winger values that derive from it.
He was able to thwart the plans as it was detected the guarantor lease for the school was forged, and therefore blocked by the Italian Bureau of Heritage.
Since the resignation of Pope Benedict in 2013, Pope Francis has cut both a insurrectionist and divisive figure in the Catholic Church, breaking from various established approaches that the Church had become accustomed to.
One of the unorthodox features of the coeval Pope’s tenure is his appointing of cardinals from less notorious churches coursing further across the globe.
