Colm O'Gorman on Wuerl as Keynote Speaker in World Meeting of Families: Will Speak on "Welfare of the Family is Decisive for the Future of the World"

Colm O'Gorman, executive director of Amnesty International Ireland, comments this morning on what the Pennsylvania report tells us about Cardinal Wuerl, and about Wuerl's upcoming address on the "welfare of the family" at the World meeting of Families. He also reminds us of who made Wuerl a cardinal — Benedict XVI, who had previously headed the CDF, to which all cases of clerical sexual abuse are required by church law to be reported. So that Benedict had full knowledge of what Wuerl had covered up when he made Wuerl a cardinal:

For Colm O'Gorman's poignant, painful letter to Pope Francis about having been raped by a priest soon after Saint John Paul the Great came to Ireland and stated, "Young people of Ireland, I love you!," see here (and here). This was the same Saint John Paul the Great who made Wuerl a bishop. As historians will note, in the papacies of Saint John Paul the Great (who protected the notorious predator Marcial Maciel) and Benedict XVI, gay people were relentlessly attacked and gay priests were identified as the problem causing the criminal activities of priests raping minors and prelates covering up that rape.
