back at it

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 23, 2007

Remember the egregious Dale Fushek, Life-Teen founder, sometime Vicar General to Phoenix fee-nom Bishop Thomas O'Brien, known to the local cops as Dale Evans and known to have navigational problems with males?

Well, it appears Fushek is back in the ministry business, though no longer as a Catholic priest. He's leading non-denominational services:

On Thanksgiving Day, he said he was happy to be back before a group of worshippers.

"I feel alive again," he said after the two-hour morning service. "This was inspiring and beautiful. I thought there was a really good spirit among the people here."

Fushek said he started the nondenominational Praise and Worship Center as a place where people can come to worship between regular services, not as competition for the Catholic Church.

"This is not a church. It is not intended to draw people away from their denominations," he said.

I'd be interested to know if retired-Bishop O'Brien is among Fushek's congregants. He feels, after all, alive again.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    "...in late 2005, when he was arrested on one count of assault, five counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one count of indecent exposure..." Hmmm. Assault; delinquency; indecent exposure; non-denominational worship service. Practice makes perfect.
