Cardinal Cupich ‘Astonished’ At Viganò Accusations

Catholic Herald: Cardinal Blase Cupich has described the remarks by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò as “astonishing” and denied any knowledge of being appointed at the behest of Archbishop McCarrick.

The cardinal also reiterated his view that homosexual clergy are no more likely to commit abuse than heterosexual ones, however he did not specifically defend Pope Francis against the charges he rehabilitated Archbishop McCarrick. More here.
