On the face of it, this sounds very fishy to me. I'd be curious to hear from anyone who knows the state of affairs in the diocese of Rochester and what kind of person the bishop is. This priest is described as conservative, knowledgeable, with no signs of problems. There was a single charge against him from one person. The situation is described as one person's word against another's. Yet he is fired within 48 hours. That's not much time to do an out-of-state investigation. There may something more here than meets the eye.

The bishop is a flaming liberal. There are more episcopalian priestesses trained in his schools then Catholic priests.

P.S. I see that he was trying to start up a Catholic radio station. That raises a red flag for me, because some liberal bishops are very reluctant to see lay Catholics, especially conservative lay Catholics, have control over a radio or TV station. They think they should have a monopoly on Catholic news.

Matthew Clark is an utter disaster. He supports homosexuality completely, including marriage and as priests. He also supports women becoming priests.
