5th allegation against Chicago ex-priest McCormack
Catholic World News - July 09, 2010
Three years after Daniel McCormack, then a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, was sentenced to a five-year prison term for the homosexual abuse of five minors, an additional lawsuit has been filed against the archdiocese. It is the fifth new abuse allegation against McCormack since he was sentenced to prison. Revelations about McCormack’s misconduct, and the failure of archdiocesan officials to address the problem, shook the archdiocese and prompted calls for the resignation of Cardinal Francis George.

card george apologized to his fellow bishops for failing to comply with the dallas guidelines in this case. the cardinal did nothing for ten years to control this serial abuser and then fired the whistle blower that called the police. obviously, the cardinal believes that law and compliance with it is for 'little people' to paraphrase leona helmsley. he needs our prayers and to resign.
