Cor ad cor loquitur, Jack.

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 31, 2003

The Cape Cod Times carries an article discussing the unlikelihood that a Massachusetts court would compel Father Bernard Kelly to testify about Paul Nolin, the accused murdered of Jonathan Wessner. Though the story is mainly concerned with Kelly's "religious privilege" claim, one almost offhand remark sticks out:

[Father] Turlick allegedly introduced Nolin and other young men to Kelly.

The "and other young men" angle is new. The context makes it clear that these introductions were not effected for the sake of spiritual direction. Of course it's still an allegation at this point, but it will be interesting to see how the dioceses of Bridgeport (Turlick) and Fall River (Kelly) respond.
