McCarrick would be pleased to support him, I bet.
McCarrick’s not a player anymore. Actually, I don’t even think retired bishops could support him without drawing down the ire of Rome. I think this has finally gotten to the point of no return.
What will probably happen - in my humble and non-prophetic opinion - is that some bishop will come out and support Bambi, be excommunicated, and start his own personal schism, which will result in the American Patriotic Church or, for simplicity’s sake, the “American Church.” Sadly, a huge number of allegedly Catholic folk would follow him.
But I think the Pope is ready for this.
