Francis has taken revenge on respected La Plata Archbishop Héctor Aguer who is known for his courageous and Catholic stances. First, Francis replaced him as quickly as he could, with the Francis devotee Archbishop Víctor Manuel Fernández. Then, he ordered Aguer to immediately leave the diocese and not to remain there for his retirement. Aguer planned to stay in La Plata Minor Seminary. At the moment, he has nowhere to go.
A Vulgar Careerist
The Argentinean blog The Wanderer reveals that the new Archbishop of La Plata, Víctor Manuel Fernández, is a careerist willing to advance his own position at the expense of his peers. A mediocre theologian, he has a large influence over Francis’ teaching. Fernández’ most famous book is about – quote – “the art of kissing”. In a 2013 article he praised the newly elected Francis using in writing expressions such as “let’s not f**k around” or “Bergoglio did not sh*t anyone”.
