Whilst I would love to see Pervert McCarrick punished for his vile crimes, I'm not sure defrocking is the way to go. It would remove him from the direct jurisdiction of the Church. Better that he should be removed from St Fidelis Friary, where he has access to young boys and men at the schools just yards away from the Friary, and banish him to a remote monastery to truly live a life of prayer and penance.
The semi-official outlet IlSismografo.Blogspot.com (November 24) called the testimony of James Grein, 61, an alleged abuse victim of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, 88, a “blow” against the former Washington archbishop.
Grein claims he was abused from 1969 to until 1987. If this is true, the abuses started when Grein was 11 but Grein later maintained a homosexual relationship with McCarrick until he was 29 years old. In 1987 McCarrick was Newark Archbishop.
Grein’s lawyer Pat Noaker assists also a second alleged McCarrick victim whose name was never publicly disclosed and who was 16 at the moment of the abuses. According to IlSismografo this case resulted in the removal of McCarrick's cardinalate.
Since Grein's alleged abuses started when he was only 11, IlSismografo expects Pope Francis to act “more severely” when he receives the Grein documentation.
“Severity” is in strong contradiction with Francis’ mercy ideology he uses to promote politically correct sins. This ideology was also applied to condone [homo]sexual abuses in a time when they same media which now are horror-stricken, were justifying abuses as the latest achievement of the sexual revolution.
