why on earth is the perp (not the archbishop) still a priest? De-frock the freak.

Good. One small step toward cleaning house.
I don’t know anything about Archbishop John Myers, but I wonder if he needs to get shoveled out too? Regrettably, you can’t trust anything that AP says about Catholic scandals, so I really don’t know.

If some Roman Catholic priests are allowed to be married (which is,in fact,the case) then it's hard for me to see why all of them can't.Either Christ wants *all* of His vicars to be allowed to marry or none of them.Married priests would go a long way toward solving two of the Church's biggest problems (at least here)...1) a growing shortage of priests...2) the fact that such a noticeable portion of current priests are of an immoral "orientation".Although I can certainly see why Christ might want His vicars to be celibate for periods of time...just as I can see why He would want *me* to abstain from eating meat on Fridays (for example)...it's very difficult for me to see why He'd want his vicars to be celibate for THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.
I'm just sayin'.....

Sadly not until the Pope purges homosexuals from the priesthood and makes celibacy ( the portal by which homosexuals enter) optional, these atrocities will not end. Homosexuals have gravely hurt the Catholic church. The Boy Scout leaders are fools. Politically correct behavior is not only self deceptive but harmful.

The priest was barred from working with “children.” Would that be male children, or female children? Usually when there is a problem of child rape, it’s either one sex or the other - not both.

It’s funny. If he were a public school teacher, this story would be downplayed.

Soon it will be leaders of the Boy Sodomitess of America doing the same.

there is NO sex scandal here, FReepers and the liberal press just love to bash the Catholic Church. The incident written in the newspaper had to do with a contract or agreement signed years ago and that agreement MAY have been violated. Wait for the courts to decide.
