Blowback against Abp. Wilton Gregory’s statement on sex abuse scandal

Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta: “I express my profound anger, sadness and distress.”
Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta, Georgia has released a statement on the McCarrick scandal, but critics are slamming him for his hypocrisy.
The archbishop said he sympathized with the outrage about clerical sex abuse, but added that he is personally hurt because of his closeness to McCarrick: “I am hurt, because my respect and fraternal esteem for Theodore McCarrick were clearly misplaced.”
Rod Dreher objected to this part of Gregory’s statement, writing in The American Conservative, “First of all, who cares how much Archbishop Gregory is hurt? Seriously, bishops as victims?”

In 2004, Gregory worked closely with McCarrick to deceive their brother bishops about the contents of a memo from the Vatican’s doctrine chief at the time, Cdl. Ratzinger.

Ratzinger made clear pro-abortion politicians may not receive Holy Communion. McCarrick — with Gregory’s help — lied and said the memo stated the opposite. When the memo was leaked to the media, McCarrick and Gregory were blasted for their deceit.

Archbishop Gregory is notorious for allowing homosexuals to run rampant in his archdiocese.

In spite of outcry from faithful Catholics, he allows the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception to participate in a gay pride parade every year.

Gregory has hosted yearly LGBT retreats for dissident pro-gay group Fortunate Families, which rejects Catholic teaching on chastity for those with same-sex attraction.

Archbishop Gregory is yet another prelate who supports pro-gay Jesuit celebrity priest Fr. James Martin, who will be promoting the LGBT agenda at the upcoming World Meeting of Families.

  1. Have no fear folks – if Francis doesn’t act, Our Lord will, either now or in His own time. These clowns don’t have a clue what awaits them when they meet Our Lord face-to-face. It sends shivers up my spine.
