Who did he live with? Who were his friends? (According to the 11/97 Washington Blade, a homosexual newspaper, the Cardinal himself had arranged for the Windy City Gay Chorus to sing at his wake at Holy Name Cathedral. It did so behind a sign prominently displaying its name.) What kinds of men did he associate with and help elevate to bishop? Who praised him? Who followed him and what was the result? RCF has spent the last four years looking for those answers.
As I said yesterday, I would love to see JPII (or the next Pope) fire some of our bishops. Imagine if we awoke tomorrow to discover that Egan, McCarrick, and Mahony had been "retired" by the Pope and replaced by Chaput, Yanta, and Fabian. The USCCB would clean up its act so fast it would create a tornado. Well, one can hope!
