This is the definition of brazenness. (Some other, less delicate, terms come to mind as well.) A former employee of a British Catholic publishing house convicted of pedophilia is suing for wrongful dismissal.

Earlier this year, Geoffrey Moore admitted five offenses of indecency with the girl and one of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. He was given a 3-year community rehabilitation order, put on the sex offenders’ register for 5 years and banned from working with children for life.

The day after his conviction, Moore was dismissed by Kevin Mayhew, of Suffolk, a publishing firm which specializes in hymnals and liturgical music. Moore is now claiming unfair dismissal and is demanding The first meeting had the liturgy of the hours, a prayer by Joyce Rupp to Sophia [ed. note: an attempt by certain liberals to identify God in the feminine sense], and supper.  The written materials were secular.

My friend wrote the Bishop, sending him information about Joyce Rupp’s dissenting (Wiccan, he says) perspective towards the Church’s hierarchy and teaching.  The next month, the Gay Pride parade information was removed and the liturgy of the hours was gone.  People had complained vocally in the first meeting that ‘no one would come’ with that much prayer.  However, Rupp’s prayer was still there, with the name removed. This time it was a litany to the energy of God.

Their goal is to have a chapter in every Memphis Catholic church.  The diocesan bureaucrats are spending a lot of time on this.  I wish that the really marginalized, those who want to learn more about authentic Catholic spirituality through the ages, could be encouraged to have ‘chapters’ in every church.
