So much for retiring in disgrace

So much for retiring in disgrace


You know when you’re forced to retire after it’s revealed that you misappropriated hundreds of thousands of dollars to give it to your gay lover, you’d think you’d have enough shame not to set up your own web site. But that’s not Archbishop Weakland, is it?

When will Paul Shanley’s web site go up? Oh that’s right, too, the Dallas charter doesn’t apply to bishops. And that’s why you can have Weakland and other disgraced bishops engaging in other ministries, like performing Confirmations or even just presenting themselves in public as priests, something ordinary accused priests can’t do.

The rules are different for those who make the rules.
