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?)
