Cd. Ouellet says Pope Francis had No "Interest" in Zero Tolerance for Predator McCarrick

Pope Francis collaborator Cardinal Marc Ouellet in an open letter admitted that ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was under punitive restrictions before Francis took office and that the present pope took no "interest" in zero tolerance for McCarrick even after he was informed of credible sex abuse allegations against the then cardinal by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò"

On October 7, The Wall Street Journal reported that senior Vatican official Cardinal Ouellet, head of the Vatican's office of bishop, admitted that ex-Cardinal McCarrick was under punitive restrictions before Francis took office:

Cardinal Ouellet "called the 'monstrous accusation' that Pope Francis ignored reports of sexual misconduct by a key cardinal, but confirmed a key point of the accusation: that the cardinal had been under punitive restrictions when the pope took office in 2013."

"... Ouellet acknowledged that Cardinal McCarrick had been 'forcefully exhorted not to travel and not to appear in public'... on account of 'rumors'... [that] didn't amount to formal 'sanctions' decreed by Pope Benedict XVI and annulled by Pope Francis."
(The Wall Street Journal, "Vatican Denounces Accusation Against Pope but Confirms Key Point," October 7, 2018)

Apparently, the senior Vatican official Ouellet is not only admitting that McCarrick was under punitive restrictions, but that Francis removed what he would call informal punitive restrictions on a serial sexual abuser and predator.

The senior Vatican official, also, admitted in his opinion that Francis wasn't "interested" that a senior Cardinal was a serial sexual abuser and predator. The pope, apparently, was so little "interested" in zero tolerance of clerical and bishop sexual abusers that he removed the informal punitive restrictions from the predator. The Wall Street article revealed:

"Archbishop Viganò has alleged that he informed Pope Francis about the U. S. cardinal's situation in June 2013... Ouellet didn't contradict the allegation, but replied: 'I strongly doubt that McCarrick interested [the pope]... he was an 82-year-old retired archbishop."

Finally, Ouellet is, apparently, incompetent or lied when he said "His [McCarrick's] case would have been the subject of new disciplinary measures if the nunciature in Washington, or any other source, had provided us with recent and decisive information about his behavior."
(National Catholic Register, "Cardinal Ouellet writes Open Letter to Archbishop Viganò," October 7, 2018)

"Decisive information" about McCarrick being a serial sex-abuser and predator was received by the Vatican from whistleblower Fr. Boniface Ramsay in 2000 according to the Associated Press as posted in the UK Daily Mail:

"A 2006 letter from Cardinal Leonardo Sandi, a top Vatican official confirms that the Holy See received information in 2000 about the sexual misconduct of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick."
(Daily Mail, "Letter confirms Vatican KNEW about sex abuse claims against Cardinal McCarrick's in 2000, September 7, 2018)

If Ouellet is not incompetent or lying he must explain why he didn't know about the Ramsey letter received by Cardinal Sandi.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations...

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
