Several people wrote me about this NY Times piece (requires registration)

Money quote: “Vincent Joseph Maniscalco and Edward Gerard DeBonis celebrated their partnership yesterday at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Manhattan. The Rev. Raymond R. Lefebvre, a Roman Catholic priest, led a commitment ceremony.”

Wellllll, not exactly, O Infallible NY Times. If you do a Google search on this “priest” you find nothing. That ought to make you suspicious. If, as a priest of my acquaintance in NY did, you checked the Directory, you find Lefebvre was a Capuchin, but no longer appears in the Directory, meaning he’s almost certainly left the priesthood. I wonder if the Times will issue a correction. Don’t hold your breath.
