Cardinal Wuerl Resigns Amid Catholic Church Sex Abuse Scandal

Published

on

Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of the Archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the Vatican announced Friday.

“Once again for any past errors in judgment, I apologize and ask for pardon. My resignation is one way to express my great and abiding love for you the people of the church of Washington,” Wuerl said in a statement.

Wuerl has been accused of covering up sexual abuse to protect clergy members and reassigning accused priests to new posts without punishment, effectively letting them off the hook for their alleged abuse. The 77-year-old Cardinal was at the center of a Pennsylvania grand jury’s findings that priests had abused more than 300 minors over a 70 year period. Wuerl was the bishop of Pittsburgh from 1988 to 2006 during the height of the sexual abuse. He then took over the archdiocese of Washington, where he denied knowing that his predecessor, disgraced Cardinal and former Archbishop Theodore McCarrick was suspected of abusing young men in the seminary.

“I am profoundly grateful for his devoted commitment to the well-being of the archdiocese of Washington and also deeply touched by his gracious words of understanding,” Wuerl said of Pope Francis, who is embattled in his own right.

Francis has directed clergy to remain silent “like Jesus on Good Friday,” and likened accusers to the devil.

Thirteen state’s attorneys general have requested all documents from their Catholic dioceses pertaining to sexual abuse and coverups within the church.

Netflix ‘Cheer’ Star, Joe Biden Surrogate Charged With Producing Child Pornography After Federal Raid

There’s something wrong at Netflix.

Published

A Netflix star who has appeared in digital campaign events as a Joe Biden surrogate has been charged with producing child pornography, just days after federal law enforcement raided his Illinois residence on suspicion that Jerry Harris was engaging in sexually explicit messaging with minors.

Harris is known for appearing on Netflix’s Cheer documentary, which details the competitive cheerleading world. Harris had appeared with Joe Biden in a digital campaign interview with the auspices of turning out the youth vote in June.

Harris’ arrest comes just days after Netflix itself became embroiled in controversy over the publication of the film Cuties, which depicts prepubescent girls in a highly sexualized manner. Many opponents of child exploitation have cancelled their subscriptions to Netflix on account of the film.

A federal criminal complaint filed in the US District Court of Chicago alleges that the 21-year old Harris “enticed an underage boy to produce sexually explicit videos and photos of himself.” The boy is described as being only 13 years old.

Harris is also being accused of child sexual abuse in civil lawsuits filed by two alleged victims earlier this week. The plaintiffs allege that Harris requested sexual photographs from them when they were respectively 13 and 14 years old.

Netflix quite clearly has some serious institutional and cultural issues. Joe Biden needs to immediately disavow his supporter- who he appeared with in a lengthy campaign interview- for what appears to be a pattern of child sexual abuse.
