Sex Abuse Victim: Pope Opens His Door to Celebs But Ignores Us
An Argentine woman who says she suffered sexual abuse at the hands of a cleric in the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires — where Pope Francis once served as the cardinal archbishop — said the pope ignored victims of sexual abuse while welcoming celebrities like environmental crusader Leonardo DiCaprio with open arms.
The Catholic Church has been rocked lately by a widespread sex abuse scandal, about which the Pope has refused to comment.
“He receives all the celebrities, like Leonardo DiCaprio, and opens his door to them. And for us, not even a quick letter to say he was sorry,” one of the victims told an interviewer with the French news program Cash Investigation in 2017.
