The former archbishop of Washington, D.C., Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, has been removed from the ministry for sexual abuse and misconduct dating back decades. Church officials said Wednesday that McCarrick was credibly accused of sexually abusing a teenager nearly 50 years ago. They also said he had faced three allegations of sexual misconduct with adults in the past. The Washington Post reports that Cardinal McCarrick helped shape many of the church’s policies for responding to the sexual abuse crisis.
