You're the first to recognize my handle! I served in the 2nd brigade from 77 to 80...how about you...and thanks for keeping an eye out for me.
Since you have served our country in our military, you may ignore this thingy.
You obviously know nothing about Chaput let alone the statements of numerous other Bishops regarding the issue. So rather than continue making a fool out of yourself, just shut the hell up, putz.
They have not been strangely silent. If you don't know that already (and I wonder how you wouldn't know that having access to the Internet as you do), I suggest you use your Internet skills and search on comments by the good Archbishop and other bishops on the pedophile (really, homosexual) priest issue.
And by the way, you're not supposed to hi-jack a thread and bring up extraneous issues. Start your own thread if you want to discuss that issue.
A friendly word of advice.
FreeRepublic isn’t like any other forum. When you post a comment, be aware that there is bound to be several bona fide experts on the subject.
So if you bring up pedophile priests on a thread, you better know what you’re talking about, because you can bet there’s about 100 others who will.
Good luck! You’re gonna need it!
