batting his eyelashes mischievously ...

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 31, 2004

A Dominican formation director giggles away a former seminarian's disillusionment with the slack life:

Laughing, Father Renz denied the allegations of "living luxuriously" with an open bar available before gourmet meals. "We try to live a simple, austere.... I don't know what that would mean.... I just, I think that's an unfair judgment."

On the subject of admitting homosexual applicants, Father Renz said, "I don' t think that's relevant to anything we're talking about now."

Hard to believe, but there are still pockets of cynical and obdurate laity in our renewed faith community who continue to withhold trust from the reverend clergy.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
