Church Officials Whitewashed the McCarrick Problem

How Church leadership reacted after the Summer of Shame.

June 20, 2023  0

This episode of The Download revisits the fallout from the 2018 Summer of Shame. Hosts Bradley Eli, Dr. William Mahoney, Christine Niles and Nick Wylie examine how members of the hierarchy reacted to the news breaking about ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick's sexual predation. Of particular focus is how the Vatican shot down moves by the U.S. bishops to address the issue. Instead, Church officials conducted a synod on sexual abuse in Rome in early 2019.
