So…. how did this guy get to be Vocation Director for KC, Kansas?

And what criteria was he looking for in men applying for the priesthood?

And who put him there? And who is his successor? And does he have a boyfriend too? And if so, how “emotionally weak” will he be when they break up? These are the questions that cross one’s mind as one contemplates a story like this.

I’m glad this guy is being booted from the priesthood and I’m glad he appears to be truly penitent. I hope God grants him abundant redemption. But it would be nice to know there won’t be a repeat of this from the next guy the diocese assigns to his post (based on what criteria? Who knows?)
