Question of the week: The men who have attacked the reputation and integrity of Archbishop Viganò are all listed in his letter as being promoted directly by Pope Francis. The men who have defended his character and called for a full investigation of the charges are all well known defenders of orthodoxy. In light of the fact that Archbishop had no hope of promotion, what does all this say about the probability that he is telling the truth?
