The author of a new book about Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, a whistleblower on the sex abuse scandal in the Roman Catholic Church, contends that in addition to the sex abuse scandal, a “doctrinal abuse” scandal also plagues the 2,000-year-old institution.
Robert Moynihan, the editor of Inside the Vaticanmagazine, wrote a book last year titled, Finding Viganò: In Search of the Man Whose Testimony Shook the Church and the World. The book is based on conversations Moynihan had with Viganò, the Vatican’s former ambassador to the United States, who has gone into hiding after publishing a letter accusing Pope Francis of covering for former U.S. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick despite the fact that he knew of the credible allegations of sexual abuse against him.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Moynihan spoke about the state of the Catholic Church in the United States as well as his conversations with Viganò. When asked what part of his conversation with Viganò surprised him the most, Moynihan responded that it was “the … torment that he felt” about “whether or not to come forward with allegations.”
