CHICAGO (ChurchMilitant.com) - A recent survey ranks Cardinal Blase Cupich the worst bishop in the United States.
On Tuesday, Complicit Clergy published the results of a survey on the trustworthiness and orthodoxy of individual U.S. bishops.
Participants were invited to rate their bishops with one ("Mostly Distrust") to five ("Completely Trust") stars for trustworthiness and one to five stars for orthodoxy (adherence to the teachings of the Catholic Church) with an option to comment.
According to Complicit Clergy,
A total of 3,162 people responded to the survey with responses for 180 bishops. Overall, the bishops scored a 1.8 in terms of trust and a 2.6 in terms of orthodoxy. 50% of bishops received a trust rating of "tend to distrust" or worst. 50% of bishops also received 3 stars or less in terms of their orthodoxy.
Cupich was ranked the worst bishop in the country and received 67 comments, none of which were positive.
It's way beyond the point of simple distrust. I sincerely believe that Cupich is an evil man, an enemy of Christ and His Church.
Comments mainly mentioned Cupich's heterodoxy, dishonesty, support for homosexuality and homosexual predators and his connection to Pope Francis.
There were also comments about the survey not permitting a lower rank and many calls for Cupich's repentance and/or resignation:
"A man who seems to have had his faith withdrawn from him if he ever had it in the first place."
"Cardinal Blasé Cupich has no respect for the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church!"
"He is not Catholic. He is evil. He works to destroy the Truth."
"He is part of the McCarrick gang and should be laicized for teaching heresy."
"He undermines the faith in every way possible. Horrible shepherd."
"Heretical, pederast, acolyte Of [sic] Baphomet."
"It's way beyond the point of simple distrust. I sincerely believe that Card. Cupich is an evil man, an enemy of Christ and His Church."
"I've stopped my donations based on his heresy."
"Sometimes, I wonder why Cupich is a member of the clergy at all. He does not uphold the teachings of the Church and does not work to draw people to the True, the Good and the Beautiful."
"When speaking, this Cardinal never even mentions Our Lord, sacraments, devotions, Church teaching--nothing distinctly Catholic or even Christian!"
"Complete HYPOCRITE. Money grubbing, liar."
"He teaches heresy and he is not honest."
"He's a lying piece of **** who protects predators and persecutes the faithful."
"He quiets dissenters and is an ideological bully."
"Lies lies lies coming out of his mouth. He should be stripped of his priesthood."
"Bishop Cupich has threatened a priest who is now disappeared because he called attention to a flag of homosexuals placed upon the cross at the altar….Blasé Cupich protects homosexuality and should go."
"...ridiculous handling of Fr. Kahlchick [sic]."
"What pushed me to question Card. Cupich was the way he and his office handled and spun the removal of our long time pastor, Fr. Frank Phillips, from St. John Cantius. Also the removal of Fr. Kalchik."
He does all this in the name of God as a cardinal; this is pure evil.
