From Crux News:
Recent revelations and accusations related to clerical sexual abuse have been “a disaster, one crisis after another” for the Catholic Church, according to Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, and have jeopardized its moral authority to speak on other issues such as the sanctity of human life, immigration and the environment.
In an interview on Thursday with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the archbishop of New York said the latest rounds of abuse scandals have been “nauseating” and “diabolical,” although he hopes they can ultimately be a “cause for healing.” In June, former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was credibly accused of abusing an altar boy while serving as a priest in the archdiocese of New York, prompting a wave of new allegations spanning several decades from seminarians who said they were abused by the former archbishop of Newark and Washington.
