Child Molesting Cardinal Theodore McCarrick Defrocked

Published

on

A former Roman Catholic Cardinal who was forced to resign from his office for sexual abuse last summer was dismissed from the clerical state in a Vatican trial on Friday.

Theodore McCarrick, 88, is the most senior member of the Catholic clergy to be defrocked in modern times. McCarrick was officially removed from the clergy on charges of soliciting sex while hearing confessions.

McCarrick had been first busted in July when a former altar boy went public with a story that involved McCarrick unzipping his pants and groping him in New York 1972. Another adult man then came public with his account of being abused by McCarrick as a boy, beginning when he was 11.

The sexual abuse accusations against the Cardinal led to several former Catholic seminarians stepping forward with accounts of McCarrick’s gay relationships with them. McCarrick had gained a reputation for abusive solicitation of men studying at seminaries to become Catholic priests.

The church judicial proceedings in regards to the abuse attributed to McCarrick revealed what many saw as a lack of will to confront allegations against the Archbishop of Washington among senior Vatican officials.

An Italian bishop, Carlo Maria Vigano, has accused Pope Francis of having prior knowledge of the accusations against McCarrick before they surfaced publicly. Vigano even took the almost entirely unprecedented step of calling for the Pope’s resignation over his handling of the now-disgraced former Cardinal.

Church authorities in the United States may have been secretly aware of the accusations against McCarrick, sweeping the reports under the rug. McCarrick’s successor as Archbishop of Washington, Donald Wuerl, may have been told about reports of McCarrick sexually abusing a 16-year old boy as early as 2004.

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

There’s something wrong at Netflix.

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.
