As Church Child Abuse Scandal Explodes, Pope Francis Addresses Threat Of Plastic Waste

This is a story that sounds like parody but sadly, it’s true. A child sex abuse scandal in the Catholic Church is breaking all over the world and Pope Francis is not addressing it. He’s too busy talking about climate change and the threat of plastic waste.

Twitchy reports:

No, really: Pope Francis is finally addressing … the crusade to ban plastic straws

In the wake of a grand jury report in Pennsylvania that found that more than 300 clergy members had been accused of sexually abusing more than 1,000 children, The New York Times and Reuters both offered up hot “conservatives pounce” headlines in what looked like an effort to shield Pope Francis from criticism.

Remember when Cardinal Blase Cupich actually imitated the parody site The Babylon Bee by arguing that the pope “has to get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the church”?

He wasn’t kidding.
