In November 2002, I met Cardinal George at the U.S. Bishop's Conference in Washington, D.C. I had joined a small group of Voice of the Faithful members who were attempting to discuss the specifics of the "Dallas Charter" with bishops as they emerged from their meetings.
I approached Cardinal George about the importance of identifying members of each diocese's clergy sex abuse review board. He appeared annoyed that I had "dared" to approach him. And, instead of responding to my question directly, he almost yelled, "Are you Catholic?"
I said, ""Yes, I am Catholic. In fact I was educated by the Jesuits (Cheverus High School and Fairfield University).
He replied, "Too bad for you."
Although, I have chuckled to myself over the years about Cardinal George's arrogance towards the Jesuits, I have never quite forgotten how pathetic, lonely and sad he appeared.
During the next few years, this same arrogance would exhibit itself in his total disregard for the Charter and its provisions to protect children.
More kids were raped and sodomized because Cardinal George looked the other way.
