The plot thickens

The plot thickens

This stuff keeps coming every day. Today’s Boston Herald reports that Fr. Bernard Kelly was planning to leave his $1+ million Cape Cod horse farm and home to Paul Nolin, the alleged murderer/convicted child molester he shared with Fr. Donald Turlick. Kelly continues to deny they were lovers; just that they were friends and he gave Nolin a job out of the kindness of his heart.

In August, Kelly cut his own brother out of his will to put Nolin in. And here’s another interesting tidbit:

Kelly’s August will also shows he was planning to leave $10,000 to Gilbert Simoes, an ex-priest at New Bedford’s Mount Carmel Church who was accused of molesting several children in the 1960s, according to a longtime investigator who interviewed the victims.

The investigators said they had a whole bunch of cases against, but they couldn’t do anything because the statute of limitations had run out.  Kelly was also planning on leaving $5,000 to Donald Turlick.

You start connecting the dots, and then you look at other priests who have been accused in other places, and how they were connected to still others, and the idea that there is a network of active homosexuals in the priesthood, protecting one another, and procuring lovers for one another, doesn’t seem like such a far-fetched conspiracy theory anymore.

Let’s just say it: There is no room in the priesthood for homosexuals who aren’t fighting their same-sex attraction. The question is: how do you know which ones are still fighting it and which ones aren’t?
