Pope accepts embattled DC cardinal's resignation
Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the embattled archbishop of Washington, ending weeks of mounting speculation and rising anger over Wuerl's role in two clergy sexual abuse scandals.
The Vatican Press Office announced the news Friday.
Wuerl, who turns 78 in November, technically tendered his resignation upon reaching age 75, as all Catholic bishops and cardinals do. But cardinals are often allowed to serve until they are 80.
While he maintained a relatively low political profile in Washington, Wuerl's resignation caps a stunning fall from grace for one of the world's most powerful Catholic leaders. Ref. CNN.
Honestly, I do not know how Catholics can remain in this religion with the amount of perversion admitted and investigated among the leadership. And, that's just the ones discovered!
I don't understand how more isn't being done to root out these abusive priests. It doesn't do anyone any good to hide it. Get them out of there and be more proactive about it. That would let everyone know that Catholicism is trying it's best to clean up the problem and not just move the problem around.
Because doing that outright makes the church look like its not as 'true' as it claims to be. The current pope has spoken out on it and seems to be trying but this church is rotten at all levels so it will have to kill itself to start afresh.
