+Kelly of Louisville

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Jun 11, 2003

Thomas Kelly has had a deep impact on the Church in this country; one hopes that history doesn't forget him. It was he who, while at the old USCC, granted the bogus annulment to Rudy Kos which got him into the seminary of Dallas... and started the balls rolling, as it were.

Some things just ought to get carved on a plaque somewhere and hung where they'll always be seen.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I could only find the story of Thomas Kelly & Rudy Kos in the Google cache. Did everyone in the Church who came in contact with him lose their common sense? His wife warned anyone she could contact that he was attracted to boys.
