Boston pastor refuses to implement Talking about Touching

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. ( articles - email ) | Oct 09, 2003

A pastor in the Archdiocese of Boston has bravely informed Archbishop Sean O'Malley that his moral duty as a pastor of souls compels him to refuse to implement "Talking about Touching" in his parish because he thinks it is evil. Bravo Fr. David Mullen.

This isn't the first contact with the archdiocese by Fr. Mullen either. He wrote a letter to Bishop Lennon 3 months ago and it still hasn't been answered. That a pastor's letter to the acting bishop about an important moral issue wasn't even acknowledged, even after 3 months, is just plain wrong.

The parish web site also has a good summary of the problems with TaT.
