In a Press Release Catholic Citizens of Illinois commended Pope Francis for addressing the sexual abuse crisis and now called upon Blase Cardinal Cupich, as their Archbishop for additional actions. They included;
Making full disclosure of the Vatican’s investigation of Theodore McCarrick.
Giving your unequivocal denial that you were aware of Theodore McCarrick’s reputation for abusing seminarians, or that he was responsible for your elevation to Chicago reassured us, and we are grateful for your calling for “responsibility, accountability and transparency” regarding McCarrick. We ask that you join Cardinal O’Malley’s call for the immediate release of the Vatican’s report on its McCarrick investigation.
Making full disclosure of credibly accused abusing priests.
Reaffirm that men with homosexual inclinations cannot be priests.
Reaffirm the Church’s teachings on human sexuality.
