The media has in the recent months reported on serious accusations against the church. Many are calling for the Pope and others to resign.

For example, Theodore Edgar McCarrick a former Cardinal resigned on July 28, 2018 after sexual misconduct allegations. On August 25, 2018 Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano released a letter that Pope Francis removed sanctions against McCarick  even though the Pope “knew from at least June 23, 2013 that McCarrick was a serial predator. He knew that he was a corrupt man, he covered for him to the bitter end.” Viganò wrote in the letter that Pope Francis and others who covered up McCarick’s behavior should resign.

Here is an excerpt from an article “The Pope probably should resign” Updated 4:12 AM ET, Wed August 29, 2018″ (https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/28/opinions/the-pope-probably-should-resign-filipovic/index.html; obtained on 8-29-2018) that ended the following way:

“No institution can totally immunize itself from abuse, but it can either foster or discourage the conditions for it. The church fostered them. And so, yes, the Pope should pay a price — probably with his job. But so should every other male authority figure in the church who has worked to uphold unfettered patriarchal power and to keep women in positions of subservience.
Which means, of course, that the entire church must radically reform — and if it doesn’t, decent Catholics must decide that keeping with their faith demands abandoning this noxious institution.”
Above are two viewpoints reaching the same conclusion.
However, it is important to note that there has apparently been no formal trial conclusion in either the US Courts or within the Church itself. Moreover, there has apparently been no arrest. A Canonical trial has yet to be completed.

Is the US justice system in some ways complicit? And, if so, why? There does appear to be systemic flaws in both institutional systems (The Roman Catholic Church and US Justice System) that function in a manner often subservient to economics. Is this an example of a hierarchical institutional system (like the banking system in the US with the ascendance of cryptocurrency)  that could be facing some type of demise in favor of more decentralized systems caused by apparent blatant abuse of power that in times past was covered up more easily due to lines of communication being less open and immediate?
