The Times reached out to every cardinal and bishop said by Archbishop Viganò to have known about the alleged sanctions on Cardinal McCarrick by Benedict. More than a dozen of them declined or did not answer requests for comment.
Of course, they can’t comment. Because whatever they say, Vigano is very likely to whip out documents that will prove they are lying. Even from what I’ve seen (and I have zero information over what’s been made public), it’s clear that Francis removed the sanctions his predecessor had placed on rapist McCarrick.
That’s a freaking bomb, folks. That a Pope should reverse the punishment placed by his predecessor on somebody as malignant as McCarrick. . . I have no words.
Please understand that I very much want the Catholic Church to survive and become stronger. But that will only happen if every rapist and molester in the Church is thrown out in shame and brought to justice.
