Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga ,the so-called " vice Pope" given his close association with Pope Francis, has refused to answer questions concerning his work with a number of NGOs funded by billionaire George Soros.Cardinal Oscar has also refused to answer queries concerning any funding he, or entities associated with him, may have received from Soros.
The queries were put to Cardianl Oscar as a result of he being named in email communications between the former Clinton campaign manager John Podesta and US based Catholic NGOs backed in part by George Soros. The emails include this paragraph:
This is why we gathered at the Vatican in mid-June, at the encouragement of Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga, often referred to as the "Vice Pope" and a strong supporter of PICO, who had urged us to share our stories, our perspective, and our hopes for the impact of Pope Francis' visit to the United States, with Vatican officials.
The emails also contain discussions of a Catholic Spring
There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic church.
While the matter of the Podesta "Catholic Spring" emails was discussed widely in the US prior to last year's presidential election, there is no record anywhere of Cardinal Oscar being questioned about his role in the matter. He has now been questioned, and he has failed to clarify matters.
In addition, there is evidence that in reviewing the queries sent him, Cardinal Oscar consulted with parties in the US, possibly in San Francisco, New Jersey and Maryland, before deciding to maintain his silence on the matter.
It does appear as if the "Vice Pope" is on some campaign to change the Vatican from within, and that
he is doing so with what amounts to an illegal slush fund , financed by George Soros.
