Associate Editor of The Spectator opts to insult Vatican official rather than do journalism

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

This one is for the history books.

Andrea Cionci recently republished a copy of a letter from last year, in which an Assessor at the Vatican Secretary of State, referred to the Holy Father correctly, as the Supreme Pontiff. A documentary fact which counters the narrative that the Vatican recognizes Bergoglio as such. Here is the letter…

And this is how Damien Thompson, editor of the Spectator responded:

As Editor of FromRome.Info, I have not the ability to call the Secretary of State and get an answer. But an associate Editor of The Spectator does. And a little journalism here might reveal a big story, like, whether there is an internal schism in the Vatican, the existence of factions which regard one man rather than the other as the true pope, etc..

If you have twitter or email or a phone and can contact Damien Thompson, I strongly suggest you do so. This way of reacting to the news is outrageous politically-correct-think.

  1. Damien Thompson seems to me to be “controlled opposition”. He is one of many English ‘academic intelligentsia’ who, typically, have great trust in their own opinions but, actually, believe some of the manifest propaganda/doctrinal warfare within the Church.

    Here is a link to his Facebook page:-

    …within which we can read the most recent offering, an appreciative piece on the musical tastes of King Charles III…….!!

    “Holy Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle…….etc.”

  2. DT is due to post another article on his FB page in the next couple of days. I plan to put a link to your critiques of his journalistic shortfalls in the comments section!

    Pax tecum.
