One disturbing aspect of the biography for the new archbishop of San Francisco, George Niederauer, has come to light. Niederauer was spiritual director at St. John’s Seminary in Camarillo, California, from 1972 to 1994. This is the same seminary which the LA Times reported has produced an inordinate numer of perverts for the priesthood since 1950. And Niederauer was there in the midst of it, giving them spiritual direction. No wonder he has nice things to say about gays in the priesthood.
