The Vatican is to investigate allegations against Cardinal Keith O’Brien which were reported to the Papal Nuncio (the Pope’s representative to Britain,) Antonio Mennini, by four anonymous men from the diocese of St.Andrews and Edinburgh.
Initially, the Cardinal stated that he would contest the vague, non-specific allegations. However, yesterday, he admitted that his sexual conduct had fallen below that which was expected of a Cardinal, and has asked forgiveness.
It is unlikely that a person would confess to an offence he is not guilty of, UNLESS he was under extreme duress. We have to assume that Keith O’Brien made his confession without any outside interference and, if that is so, then we have to ask why he has not been interviewed by the Police.
Why is the Vatican in charge of the investigation?
We have a suggestion to make to the Vatican regarding those four anonymous accusers and it is this, NAME THEM!
