Reuters reports that Pope Francis accepted the resignation of the archbishop of Washington D.C. This over the handling of Catholic Church sex abuse cases. Francis praised the close ally for stepping down in the name of unity rather than fighting accusations of a cover-up. With his resignation on Friday, Cardinal Donald Wuerl became one of the highest ranking Catholic leaders to step aside over global accusations that the Church harbored sex abusers. And the resignation further exposes a rift within the Church between Francis and a conservative wing in the church. That wing has opposed his efforts to be more welcoming to divorced Catholics and homosexuals.
