Cardinal McCarrick part of State Dept. peace mission to Central African Republic

April 24, 2014

Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the retired Archbishop of Washington, was part of a recent US State Department peace mission to the Central African Republic, according to a Washington Times report.

The cardinal said that following the 2011 overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Muslim rebels entered the Central African Republic. “People came in to the CAR from outside and began to persecute Christians,” he said.

Then, he said, Christians began to attack Muslims.

“It was based on vengeance. So often that’s the problem,” he said. “Many people are trying to make life impossible for Muslims.”
