Everybody knew about McCarrick, but they also knew he was too powerful to touch. How will this new panel fix that? If a bishop paid a financial settlement to hush up McCartricks sins, how is that different from what the Bishops did for bad priests? Why arent those bishops now in the dock? What will this new board do about that? Or is this another attempt to look like the bushops are doing something without really doing anything?
For years we had heard rumors about McCarrick, well for years we have also heard rumors about Wuerl (do a simple Google search). This submarine Wuerl is proposing to launch may come back and get him! For this effort to have any credibility lay Catholics with impeccable reputations should be leading this charge.
To any in the episcopacy reading this, THIS is what the people in the pews think (Best comment): "Or is this another attempt to look like the bushops are doing something without really doing anything?"

I've heard about Wuerl for years too, which makes me think that this is just another attempt in the vein ByzRC notes.
They've had plenty of time to set things straight. A lay board would be appointed, just like bishops are appointed. Only the police and the civil courts can curtail predatory clergy.
