Cardinal Wuerl Should Resign

The bombshell Pennsylvania Grand Jury report just released shows that Cardinal Donald Wuerl, former Archbishop of Pittsburgh, was complicit in covering up sexual abuse of children by multiple priests, shuffling around priests who'd abused children, and publicly praising priests he knew had abused children. 

Cardinals and bishops who ignored or covered up abuses and criminal acts like these and knowingly allowed priests to inflict harm on others were collaborating in the evil and must resign or be removed. Explanations that "we've learned a lot since then" and "we now have stronger policies" neither undo the damage nor in any way justify the past enabling of these evil, harmful, criminal, and immoral acts.

In Mark 9: 42 Jesus says, "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe [in me] to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were put around his neck and he were thrown into the sea. A Washington Post editorial calling for Cardinal Wuerl's resignation concludes, "This must be a time of repentance.  Repentance requires accountability.  And accountability requires resignations--starting with Wuerl's."
