To: one Lord one faith one baptism

That’s one heck of a cynical thing to say. Whatever happened has messed with his head and the man deserves compassion and prayers. And, when it comes to the treatment of people accused in the American Church, unfortunately, he is correct. At the very least, whether or not there is any crime here, he is bringing attention to a pretty unjust system put in place by the USCCB, which doesn’t even have any true authority in the overall Church. It’s just a joint statement machine that they use to abdicate responsibility for saying anything under their own titles.

To: Desdemona

he deserves prayers, compassion when he comes clean about his conduct. he obviously didn’t want an investigation into his lifestyle, and was willing to give up the priesthood to protect his secrets from coming to light.
