Matt Walsh: Pope likened sex abuse accusers to Satan the ‘Great Accuser’

Pope Francis addressed the recent sex abuse scandals that have rocked the Catholic Church in some controversial remarks Tuesday in his homily.

“In these times, it seems like the ‘Great Accuser’ [a reference to Satan] has been unchained and is attacking bishops,” Pope Francis said. “True, we are all sinners, we bishops. He tries to uncover the sins, so they are visible in order to scandalize the people. The ‘Great Accuser,’ as he himself says to God in the first chapter of the Book of Job, ‘roams the earth looking for someone to accuse.”

Matt Walsh, a writer for The Daily Wire and a devout Catholic, joined Glenn on today’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” to react to the pope’s controversial speech and weigh in on the far-reaching sexual abuse scandals within the church.

“He got up and said Satan is at work in the church, which I agree with that part,” Matt said. “But he said that Satan is at work amongst the accusers and he is victimizing the poor bishops.”

“I guess he’s saying that the people who are accusing the bishops are Satan, and also the faithful Catholics who are demanding answers, I guess we are also in league with Satan. That appears to be what the Pope is insinuating and I find it to be absolutely horrific,” he added.
