CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Philip Egan of Portsmouth, 62, said, “There is a three-level crisis here: first, the alleged catalog of sins and crimes against the young by members of the clergy; secondly, the homosexual circles centered around Archbishop McCarrick, but present in other areas across the Church, too; and then, thirdly, the mishandling and cover-up of all this by the hierarchy up to the highest circles.”
