Powerful piece by @emmaogreen on what many of us Catholics feel is the worst failure in our collective lives of the Church--#PriestSexAbuse scandal.
The piece comes as McCarrick is, today, the 1st cardinal to be defrocked.

Sadly, Francis should resign.
He has failed on this.
As a practicing Catholic, I find it hard not to wonder about the history of priests I do not know--and have wondered even about priests I have known.
We ignored priests dying of #AIDS in the 80s and 90s.
Why?
There's so much wrong with the priesthood--a major part is no women.
I'm not sure when I first wrote about pedophile priests, but in 2005 I wrote a series of pieces on then-DA #LynnAbraham's scathing rebuke of the Philadelphia Archdiocese for it's failure to address the violence against minors and others after a 3yr grand jury report.

THREAD on #McCarrick:
Many seem convinced a decision is due out tomorrow.

Anything is possible in this case, as we’ve seen. But some thoughts.

The Féria IV of the CDF is scheduled to meet on Wednesday. A decision on McCarrick the day before would be interesting...
This would suggest that the decision was not being issued by the Féria IV itself but from some members of the CDF delegates to judge the administrative process.

Art. 27 of Sacramentorum Sanctitatis Tutela allows recourse against administrative decrees of the CDF to the Féria IV
If the Féria IV is expecting an appeal, a conviction could be announced Tuesday and rejected by the Féria on Wednesday. But there’s no reason why they need publish the two notifications separately instead of both the same day (Wednesday)...

141. A la hora del montoneo fashionista jashtaguero, resulta que todos son fulanita o fulanito; hasta el perro son. Pero cuando toca revisar el nivel de responsabilidad personal en el crimen de la #PederastiaEclesiástica, no hay quien se apunte con el #TodosSomosCómplices
143. #Bergoglio da consejos de qué hacer con un hijo homosexual; sin embargo este "Padre espiritual" está atiborrado de hijos espirituales homosexuales -curas-, a los que les solapa sus abusos en contra de seminaristas:

Todo está claro en el enlace del tuit 135 de este hilo.

1. Nota inicial.

Hace tiempo comencé un hilo sobre el tema y cometí el error de no numerar los tuits -básicamente, porque no imaginé que me dedicaría tanto al tema-. El hilo ha aumentado y se ha profundizado, así que esta es la enmienda de aquel error.

Why have we heard nothing about nuns being sexually assaulted by priests before this?
It's outrageous that these complaints have been filed for decades with no response.
#MeToo #TimesUp
Cardinal #McCarrick spent SIXTY YEARS in a position to assault teens and young seminarians. The culture of protection of these abusive clergy has not ended. Pope Francis has not done nearly enough to help those who've been abused nor to punish the abusers.

Nuns have been used as "safe" for priests to sexually use and abuse, particularly in countries in Africa where #AIDS is rampant.
Priests who reported the abuse were sanctioned by the Church.
Nuns are always in a position of subservience to priests.
