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.
Two Stars of Netflix Show ‘Cheer’ are Charged with Pedophilia-Related Offenses
Netflix strikes again.
Two stars of the pro-LGBT Netflix show Cheer are being charged with pedophilia-related offenses, after one of the stars of the show was hit with child pornography charges.
Navarro College cheer team member Mitchell Ryan, 23, was arrested outside of Dallas and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child last week. He is currently out on bond awaiting trial. Coach and choreographer Robert Joseph Scianna Jr., 25, was arrested for “use of an electronic communication device to solicit sex,” and was hit with additional charges for indecency with a child.
“The investigation indicates that Scianna met a juvenile male through a social media platform and arranged to meet the juvenile for sex,” the Chesterfield County, Va. police department said about Scianna’s arrest.
Both Ryan and Scianna have been featured on the Netflix reality television show Cheer, which profiled cheerleaders at Navarro College. The show was meant to be an inspirational pro-LGBT story of courage and triumph, but as is often the case, a bunch of those supposed heroes were hit with sex crime charges.
Big League Politics reported on how another Cheer star was charged with manufacturing child pornography as a troubling pattern of perversion continues to unfold within the LGBT community:
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.
It seems that the entertainment industry, which has always been a haven for predators, is trying to mainstream pederasty. This is the type of societal decadence typically experienced during the collapse of a civilization.
