OK, now we know...

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Mar 14, 2012

Yesterday I wrote about the many questions that remained unanswered about the case in which a priest denied Communion to a lesbian activist.

Today we have received a whole lot of answers from the embattled priest. The Washington archdiocese has a lot of explaining to do.

 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    We get the shepherds we deserve, and, judging from this appalling little imbroglio, we must be one really rotten flock.

    The archdiocese can explain all they want, but their actions have already spoken volumes to people both IN and Out of the Church. No further explanation is needed, as it would only lead to dissembling or equivocation.
