August 1, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Catholic institutions that previously honored former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick are beginning to rescind his honorary degrees.  

Recent revelations about McCarrick’s predatory sexual behavior toward young seminarians and boys has caused both Fordham University and the Catholic University of America (CUA) to withdraw the degrees they had once given the disgraced former Archbishop of Washington, D.C.

McCarrick is swiftly being erased from and by the institutional Church as much as possible.

McCarrick has already been reduced to an enigma.
