I was trolling the rightwing blogosphere - and I use that verb advisedly - and I came across this post at Rorate Caeli attacking Archbishop Blase Cupich. The article was bad enough, but what really caught my eye was the twitter feed which included this item:

Francis Flogs the Curia. But What a Gap Between Words and Deeds  via @Inoreader

Archbishop Thomas Gullickson is the papal nuncio to Ukraine. I was not aware that trashing the pope by disseminating articles that are highly critical of him was a part of a nuncio's brief. Who knew? In fact, there are five or six other tweets of similar articles attacking Pope Francis. There are no similar links to articles that are favorable to the Holy Father. Cardinal Parolin: Call your office! There is also a link to If you ever need a laugh, check it out. Hard to know which is worse, the outrageous things that come out of the host's mouth or the production values. The archbishop links to some articles by George Weigel - surprise, surprise. And, National Review Online, Catholic News Agency, etc. Clicking on the links is like falling through the rabbit hole and entering a different universe, a grim, sad universe.
