Why's he still there?

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Nov 23, 2004

In regard to the Brisbane matter, I'm left wondering why Fr. Kennedy is still pastor of the parish? He's shown a complete lack of understanding of the Catholic faith and a penchant for preaching heresy even when his archbishop corrects him. So why is he left in the position to continue to lead the people astray? If he's messing around with something as fundamental as baptism, what else is he screwing up?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Why would anyone, including this bishop, fire anyone who satisfies his two most important criteria: he brings home the bacon -- the church cash flow --, and he never generates any politically correct questions from the press. All is copacetic.

    Why, replacing Fr. Kennedy might offend the parishioners who enjoy his heretical antics. We certainly don't want to offend anyone!

    Just as there is no such thing as a bad boy, so there is no such thing as a bad priest without a bad bishop standing behind him. As soon as the bishop of Brisbane heard about the antics of this heretic, he should have "terminated" him. There's no point in trying to rehabilitate someone like this.
