Judging from a previous thread,
I assume that the first thing for you guys to do is to find out if Maya Kremen is a homosexual?

As I've previously stated, the crux of my complaint / disappointment with Fr. Groeschel in the context of the Scandal is that from the earliest days he made excuses for the bishops guilty of serially relocating predator priests, helping them hold onto their cushy jobs amidst all the calls for resignations.
The recent news suggests a possible motive: that he had made severeal of these recommendations himself.

Welcome Lent! Just when you think it can't get any worse...
Here's an FYI about psychological counseling in general -- I have no idea whether it is a factor in any of the cases involving Catholic priests.
Most employee health insurance policies do not cover unlimited counseling. Let's say that employee X's policy covers 24 counseling sessions per year. When X has a personal crisis, Standard Operating Procedure is for Psychologist Y to give him his 24 sessions (at two or three times a week, this goes through maybe 10 weeks). Then Y asks X if he wants to pay for more sessions out of his pocket. When X says no, Y pronounces him cured, and writes him a clean bill of health.

I would like to know at what point did the Catholic Church become so secular that they disregard sin and substitute it with psychology? We no longer seem to need repentance so much as therapy. This is yet another problem that arises when we view persons as brains instead of souls.

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, [so] walk ye in him:
Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. Col 2:6,7,8
