Letter: Criticism of Pope Francis unfair


Re: Chris Kempling’s Faith column of May 17 (‘Heresy or modernization?’):

article continues below

Kempling’s condemnation of Pope Francis is unfounded.

For the truth about Kempling’s column regarding Pope Francis and former American Cardinal McCarrick, go to the Vatican News website at vaticannews.va.

On Jan. 11,, the Vatican imposed on McCarrick the penalty of dismissal from the clerical state. That means he is no longer recognized by the Catholic Church as a priest.

Kempling’s other comments of Pope Francis being a heretic are irresponsible.
