The pedophile Theodore McCarrick destroyed James' life; he sexually abused him starting when James was only 11 years old

 Pedophile Theodore McCarrick and his victim, James

The American Conservative:

From today’s Washington Post story, these words from James, whose abuse at McCarrick’s hands started when he was 11 years old:
“What he did to me was he ruined my entire life. I couldn’t break the hold. I couldn’t live up to my ability — to stay employed, married, have children. I lost all those opportunities because of him,” James said. Breaking into tears, he said, “I try to be a really good kid every day.”
James is 60 years old. He’s still trying to be a good little boy — the boy he was before Father Theodore McCarrick stole his innocence. 

This is the pedophile  who was lobbied to support Bergoglio in the invalid conclave of 2013.

“Why, I ask, O damnable sodomites, do you seek after the height of ecclesiastical dignity with such burning ambition? Why do you seek with such longing to snare the people of God in the web of your perdition?” St. Peter Damian

“Damian warns that sodomy, particularly in the priesthood, is like a terrible plague that threatens to bring down the wrath of God. He warns that priests who are engaged in such evils are not proper intercessors for the people and, in fact, will tend to provoke divine vengeance rather than reconciliation.” 

McCarrick, the bishops, and unanswered questions

From all corners of the Church, questions are being raised about those who might have known about McCarrick’s misconduct, about how the Church will now handle the allegations against McCarrick, and about what it means for the Church that a prominent, powerful, and reportedly predatory cleric was permitted to continue in ministry for decades without censure or intervention.

Because McCarrick was a leading voice in the Church’s 2002 response to the sexual abuse crisis in the United States, and an architect of the USCCB’s Dallas Charter of the same year, the credibility of that response has also, for some, come into question.

For parents and others who placed trust in the Church to secure a safe environment for children, those questions are especially important.


At the USCCB’s 2002 Spring Assembly in Dallas, the bishops drafted their “Charter for the Protection of Young People” and the “Essential Norms for Diocesan/Eparchial Policies Dealing with Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests or Deacons,” under intense media scrutiny.

Bishops admit they knew Cardinal McCarrick was an abuser but stayed silent

Fr. Martin admits he heard all the stories of Cardinal McCarrick's sexual assaults. He even knew where Cardinal McCarrick was committing sexual assaults.

But, he never personally knew a victim, so the sexual assaults were ok to sweep under the rug because he admired him for his kindness and social justice work.

For the record, Cardinal McCarrick was also someone whom I, like many American Catholics, admired for both his pastoral work and social justice advocacy. Whenever I met him, he was also unfailingly kind, and I saw him extend that same kindness to others.

The overwhelming vibes Cardinal McCarrick gave off that he was a sexually-active homosexual might have had something to do with the admiration, too. After all, that is Fr. James Martin's entire shtick.

Will (Bergoglio) kick abuser McCarrick out of the College of Cardinals? More questions, no answers 

How (Bergoglio) will respond and whether McCarrick will remain in the College of Cardinals or be defrocked (“the expected sanction if McCarrick were a mere priest,” the Associated Press noted) remain to be seen. There are also questions about bishops – including Kevin Farrell, who is now a cardinal and runs the Vatican dicastery in charge of life and family affairs for the Church – who rose to power under McCarrick. And, as was the case during the earlier years of the massive and apparently nowhere-close-to-ending sex abuse scandal, there are many questions about who in Church leadership knew, when they knew, and why they remained silent.

Cardinal McCarrick is an Evil Sexual Predator 

Here’s how one saintly pope would clean up gay orgies at the Vatican 

St. Hildegard of Bingen explains that homosexuality is the supreme offense against God.
