By picking Edward Egan to head the Archdiocese of New York, the pope is continuing to move the Catholic Church to the right—even further right than the conservative John Cardinal O'Connor.
Egan's office received a complaint about the leader of the retreat, Reverend Robert Nugent, who was undergoing a lengthy investigation by the Vatican for not emphasizing the church's teaching that homosexuality is "evil" and "disordered" (even though he has not publicly disagreed with the teaching).
Egan was successful in boosting vocations in Bridgeport, establishing a pre-seminary—where young men can explore their vocations—but one source says that he succeeded because "they're not too picky" about whom they let in.

 Cardinal Egan Under Fire
Egan failed to investigate aggressively some abuse allegations, did not refer complaints to criminal authorities and, during closed testimony in 1999, suggested that a dozen people who made complaints of rape, molestation and beatings against the same priest may all have been lying, the documents show.
The revelations about Egan's role in Connecticut's largest clergy sex-abuse scandal are taken from thousands of documents in lawsuits that Egan and the Bridgeport Diocese fought, successfully, to keep sealed from public view.
Egan, who was bishop in Bridgeport from 1988 to 2000, was a defendant in some of the lawsuits and fought them aggressively from 1993 until the settlement, which ended all of the litigation.

Egan's loyalty to Vatican teachings does not carry over as forcefully to labor unions, an area where his predecessor distinguished himself.
But outspoken criticism from Catholic leaders like Egan and O'Connor ultimately had a polarizing effect on voters, and sex education won passage in New York, as it did in other cities like Boston and New Haven, where the church was a controversial participant.
Egan's appointment as ninth archbishop of New York was widely interpreted as an effort to reassert Vatican influence on American life.
