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On July 5, Fordham University rescinded an honorary degree and other honors it had granted McCarrick.

She said the statement spoke about complying with civil law in terms of the mandatory reporting of child abuse, but she said it did not say church leaders must report abuse in countries where such reporting is not mandatory.

"Victims should know that the pope is on their side," the Vatican said in a statement

They should, but unfortunately they don't, at least with Lenin's pope in the vatican

Why not a proof-of-concept project on his colleagues?

you should forward your suggestion to francis

From elsewhere, 80% of the victims are male.

Meanwhile, as little as two months ago, Francis attacking President Trump for defending the border, saying he supported the statements made by US Catholic bishops who called the separation of children from their parents “immoral” and “contrary to our Catholic values.”
Francis has made no such statement about pedophiles in the catholic church raping children.

It's hard to stomach Francis accusing the president of child abuse for stopping illegal immigration while at the same time Francis turns a blind eye to pedophiles in the catholic church raping children.


Francis also failed to mention that the catholic church has a financial interest in lax border security. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops received $176 million in federal contracts for refugee resettlement in 2015 and 2016 (obama years) alone.
