Christopher Manion, a Catholic journalist, wrote a piece in which he calls for the resignations of all bishops who knew of Cardinal McCarrick's abuses and did nothing to stop it. One Peter Five has commentary on that and I need not elaborate on that. I would only add that priests be added to that clarion call. Even if they were victims, even if their vocations were on the line, they still had a moral duty to come forth, yet they shirked it.
Today Church Militant published the account of John DeFilippis, a former seminarian who had his own harrowing experience with Cardinal McCarrick. However, even he doesn't name names. Clearly the priest who told him that McCarrick might want to share his bed was complicit. He should be named.
From the moment he arrived in Washington, Cardinal McCarrick was always prone to embroil himself in squalid associations, be they with Ted Kennedy, John Sweeney, Sr. Carol Keehan, etc. Over the years I've been involved with four pickets to protest his joint appearances with these pro-aborts. It appears that there will be no others from him - at least I hope so. Below I post a video from the last of these encounters. This occasion was the graduating ceremony of students from Gonzaga High, in June of 2010. The Obama Hell-Bill had just been signed, with the connivance of Sister Carol Keehan of the Pen of Perfidy. Guess who the commencement speaker was? Yes, the aforementioned Keehan! Guess who gave the invocation? Yes, Cardinal McCarrick! We were on hand to protest the debacle and Cardinal McCarrick received some well-deserved rebuke. Observe (please watch till the end).
Cardinal McCarrick's years are winding down. He hasn't much time left. Please pray that he repents - that he makes a good confession, and very soon. Else his eternal prospects look mighty dim.
