uncanny coincidence

By Diogenes (bio - articles ) | May 05, 2010

It's not often that your Uncle Di has occasion to report the news from Park City, Utah. So what are the odds that when a priest there criticizes the Vatican for its handling of the sex-abuse problem, he just happens to be the same Father Bob Bussen who, some months back, was blaming the Vatican for its attitude toward homosexuality

Pure coincidence, I'm sure. The two issues-- repeat after me-- are entirely unrelated.




An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    A smaller Church might not be a bad idea...

    Thanks for pointing this out -- it gave me an opportunity to respond in print.

    Uncle Di, what's the chance that we might ever know what percentage of ordained and "practicing" priests are, like "Father Bob", ticking time bombs in our midst, awaiting the time to explode? Wasn't it the Miami Diocese that was said to have such a widespread problem with homosexual priests that if they were removed from the ministry, 70% of the parishes would be without a pastor?
