When will canon law be used as it was meant to be: to defend the Faith?

The case for canonical discipline of Archbishop Weakland

George Neumayr of Catholic World Report writes: "How can ordinary lay Catholics be expected to uphold the Church's stand on the immorality of homosexual acts, if such a prominent Catholic leader is voicing opposite opinions? So canon lawyer Edward Peters asks 'what, if anything, will Rome finally do to vindicate the faithful against the appalling and on-going scandal of Abp. Rembert Weakland?... That Weakland is an archbishop...should not shield him from canonical investigation and punishment, but rather serves to underscore the need for his correction.'"
