Our Fabulous Florida Bishops, Snapshot #3

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 10, 2003

In 1998, by a truly astonishing coincidence, Bishop Keith Symons of Palm Beach, the same man who snuggled up to New Ways Ministry, confessed to molesting five boys in three parishes when he was a priest. St. Petersburg Bishop Robert Lynch, the interim administrator, regretted Symons' departure and the inflexibility of Catholic doctrine:

"We almost have a hang-up with sex," Lynch says. "We expect people to live up to such a high ideal of sexual conduct and we don't allow any failure."

We love our bishops.
