A welcome diversion (of funds)?
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Aug 20, 2004
Like everyone else, I sometimes grow weary of the struggle.
There are days when I read the headlines, shake my head, and ask myself, "Why is it always about sex? Why can't we have a good old-fashioned scandal about money?"
Today was one of those days. I just couldn't face another story about a priest who chases boys, and a bishop who promotes him anyway. I wondered what it would be like if we had a different plot-line: say, a layman who's accused of wrongdoing, and complaints of financial rather than sexual misdeeds. Would the bishop still ignore the accusations and promote the man?
I guess I must have been thinking out loud. Because I looked at the CWN site, and-- just like that!-- I had my answer.
