Cupich one of power quartet to organize anti-abuse meeting in February — fox and chickencoop situation?

Cardinal C of Chi is one you would ordinarily pick for this uber-important job?

ROME, November 23, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis has named Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago to a four-member organizing committee for next February’s Vatican summit on clerical sexual abuse.

The appointment is raising concerns because Cardinal Cupich has notably dismissed Archbishop Viganò’s testimony on the McCarrick abuse cover-up as a mere “rabbit hole” distracting the Church, believes that homosexuality is not a significant contributing factor in the abuse of minors (despite statistics showing otherwise), and has defended the Vatican postponing U.S. bishops from voting on measures to prevent abuse cover-up.

Well, as for the last, wouldn’t he prefer leaving it to the big show, where he’s to be a big shot, as opposed to doing something in Baltimore, for the group that voted him down as prexy last time around?

He got their vote of no-confidence months ago. Why should he build them up now?

As for the chickencoop part, he’s been a wild man in Chi about certain conservative leaders but has no history of particular expertise or leadership in the dreadful clergy-abuse situation.
