Father Boniface Ramsey, a former professor in Archbishop McCarrick's Newark seminary, published in the Commonweal Magazine details about McCarrick’s homosexual behavior: McCarrick used to invite five specific seminarians to spend a weekend at his beach house where there were five beds for six men. So one seminarian had to sleep in McCarrick’s bed. When bedtime came, McCarrick stripped himself naked, almost always in front of the seminarian, before putting on some bedclothes. The expectation was that the seminarian would do the same. Ramsey adds, “I never heard that McCarrick touched anyone.”
Ramsey further recalled the late Louisville Archbishop Thomas Kelly said that McCarrick had met a good-looking flight attendant at the airport and invited him to become a seminarian. Ramsey was told this was not the only such spontaneous invitation.
