If ‘Everybody Knew’ about Cardinal McCarrick, the Corruption Runs Deep

. . .now, at last, we know, too, that complaints had been lodged against the cardinal.  These complaints, we are told, did not involve minors—& that’s all we are told about the complaints, apart from the fact that they were settled.  But in light of those complaints, & in light of the many stories involving seminarians, it would be naïve to suggest that the cardinal has now been brought to disgrace because of a single, isolated incident.  The seminarians may have been of legal age, but they were not a bishop’s equals.  His position gave McCarrick the opportunity to recruit young men & to silence those who rejected his advances, & he abused a sacred trust. . .
