Cardinal Theodore McCarrick Resigns Amid Sexual Abuse Scandal

I reported on this story a week ago in the Vatican thread
ppauper wrote:
Cardinal McCarrick, Bill Clinton’s longtime spiritual advisor, has been charged with the rape of a minor

he's described as the Cardinal emeritus of Washington, D.C.,  whatever a cardinal emeritus is (retired but keeps the rank?)

from wiki
In 2009, McCarrick spoke at the graveside service of U.S. Senator Edward M. Kennedy at Arlington National Cemetery and read from a letter Kennedy had written to Pope Benedict XVI.


On July 5, Fordham University rescinded an honorary degree and other honors it had granted McCarrick.


if the allegations are true, he belongs in a prison not a cathedral

Given the millions dead due to Religion one can argue that all those who belong in cathedral also belong in prison.

that's poor trolling.
The point stands, if the cardinal emeritus did indeed rape a minor, he should be treated exactly the same as anyone else who has done the same thing.
I'm wondering now whether this was "statutory rape:" in some jurisdictions, if you have sex with a minor, it is assumed that the minor cannot consent so it is considered rape.

It is poor only inasmuch as the term "millions" seems wholly understated. Not to mention the billions suffering under religion on a daily basis.

But the Vatican has its own rules and code of conduct ..., so US law is redundant and ineffectual here. McCarrick resigns with no blemish on his record ...

if the allegations are true and happened in the US, then he broke US law and belongs in jail.

He obviously belongs in jail, but the protection racket known as the catholic church has done its job once again.

as I said, I covered this in the Vatican News thread. He has been charged under US law
He's protected by the Clinton crime family

Interesting. Are you saying that they are obstructing the course of justice?

this is horrific
Man at N.M. compound trained kids for school shooting

Muslim Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was arrested last week at a compound in New Mexico.
He was training children to commit mass shootings at US schools.
He is the son of a Brooklyn imam who was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
