CWN Editor's Note: “Special mention should be made of the most notorious and highest in ranking case, that being the allegations of former-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s (oft-rumored, now very public) sexual sins, predation, and abuse of power,” Bishop Robert Morlino of Madison said in a letter to the faithful of his diocese. “While recent credible accusations of child sexual abuse by Archbishop McCarrick have brought a whole slew of issues to light, long-ignored was the issue of abuse of his power for the sake of homosexual gratification.”

    The hidden sins are finally coming to light. Many of our good bishops are finally coming forward to call this sin what it is - homosexuality. I was in a junior seminary in California and left. Many of my classmates and higher classmates went on to become priests and a bishop( remember Zieman of Santa Barbara diocese and his priest boyfriend) succumbed to homosexuality. It is still active and needs a clean sweep. No more excuses or coverups of any kind.

    It is amazing that this article has received no comments nor merited any discussion in the commentary section. Bishop Morlino is on target. His message should be supported forcefully by his brother bishops, and by serious Catholic writers.
