  • No you are innocent until proven guilty. Would you like a slander put on you and then revoked your name would still be mud. So staying silent till the truth is brought to light is the only way.

  • Of course he knew all that was going on..he was IN CHARGE..Wuerl is now "wordsmithing" so he won't have to take responsibility for the clerical sexual abuse victims in Pennsylvania. .he ordered the coverups..

    Don't feel too sorry for this pious weasel. ..he lives in a luxurious, remodeled penthouse on Embassy Row in Washington DC surrounds by his art and antiques. .. the laity pays for his lifestyle as he is too busy preaching and praying. .look him up on google…it's all there…he belongs in jail!!!!!

  • How could Wuerl NOT know… l, even knew.
    The Vatican didn't depose him… he chose to retire, only as from the job.. maybe he is not well

  • Wuerl just admitted he did know about mc carrick's perverted behavior…he lied repeatly when asked if he had prior knowledge. .these guys aren't only sexual preverts, they are liars too…

  • Hey you MORON crapdinal Weird Wuerl !!! How is your best friend Creepy McCarrick? ?? CRAP-DINAL DANEELS is dead. ..CROAKED ALREADY. …DON'T WORRY. ..AT YOUR AGE, YOU AND CREEPY PROBABLY STILL HAVE 60 MORE YEARS TO GO SO RELAX….150 YEARS OLD?
    HEY, BREAKING THE RECORD. ..PLENTY OF TIME TO REPENT BEFORE YOU AND CREEPY AND DODO-LAN AND MAHONEY AND THE REST OF YOUR EVIL INFESTED HERD. …CROAK LIKE THE RATS YOU ARE !!!
