Shepherds or Sheepdogs?

The Vatican’s Secretariat of State is embroiled in scandal after one of their dubious $100 million real estate deals (in London!) went south. Did Cardinal Parolin know about his underlings’ questionable business ethics? Did Pope Francis? Is the mafia involved? And did these shady dealers frame Cardinal Pell when he found them out?

Meanwhile, bishops and priests have flocked to the cause of Black Lives Matter, buying into the group’s false narrative about “systemic racism” in American law enforcement. Why are Catholic clerics playing into the anti-police narrative of BLM and their ally, the terrorist group Antifa?

Your hosts Michael Warren Davis and Philip F. Lawler dig deep into the news of the day in episode three of The Crisis Point.
