From the little I know, he's more conservative than McCarrick (who was a disappointment). The statements in that article were made a year ago, and I believe that since then the Vatican has made some more specific statements on the issue of Catholic politicians who "disagree" with the Church but wish to publicly present themselves as Catholics in good standing. There has certainly been a lot more enforcement of prohibitions on pro-abortion speakers from various diocesan or college events, etc.
Maybe - one hopes - Wuerl will conform to the stricter Vatican position as time goes by.

That is what I was hoping to hear. McCarrick is too leftist, and his position in the nation's capital gives him a good deal of visibility and, therefore, a fair amount influence.
(I am not in his diocese, but, because of my last job, I had familiarity with his work.)
