an effective life of ministry, sadly impaired by anthrax

By Diogenes (articles ) | Feb 07, 2005

A gay priest with a reputation for shower-gazing and indelicate contact and conversation announced his own resignation and that of his friend and minister of music recently busted for masturbating in a mall restroom. That's as much as I could squeeze into a lead sentence summarizing the abruptly curtailed career of Dallas priest Fr. William Richard. The expanded DMN version is available here.

    Bishop Gregory, where are you? The USCCB needs your help! It is time to rewrite the HISTORY of the sex abuse crisis--again.

    Another sad, sick sinful story that spring up like weeds in the media. And yet another horrendous example of a moral malignancy among so many of our bishops and Church leaders. When the final judgement is made it will rest on many miters. What a price to pay for being a complicit poltroon!
