Atlanta's Archbishop Gregory will sell new residence

Catholic World News - April 07, 2014

Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta, Georgia, has announced plans to sell his new residence.

The archbishop, who came under criticism for spending over $2 million to build a new residence after vacating another property, had apologized last week for the expenditure and said that he would consult with advisers about what should be done with the new building. After a meeting April 5, he announced that “I have decided to sell the Habersham property and invest the proceeds from that sale into the needs of the Catholic community.”

    Of course! He's afraid his head will be next on the chopping block!

    How about spending over $100,000,000 on a Protestant church (the Crystal Cathedral)? Selling a $2,000,000 property "for the needs of the Catholic community" is a great idea - I guess the other Catholic community doesn't have any "needs?"
