Chaput believes in due process for the accused and you are not privy to what additional action is being taken in Rome to dismiss Whipkey from the clerical state, are you?
I left out no details. In fact, I first reported on Whipkey's "administrative leave" status last December. That's when it was mentioned for the first time - when Father Robert Whipkey entered his "not guilty" plea for (in the words of the county prosecutor) "(walking) the length of three football fields, past 21 homes, near a preschool and several businesses with no clothes and no regard for anyone else as dawn broke June 22, 2007...after (jogging) nude around the track at Frederick High School. The Archdiocese didn't place him on administrative leave until August 2007, two months after the incident, i.e. when the news of his behavior went public.
You don't place someone on "administrative leave" unless you still consider them part of the administration. Whipkey wasn't fired. Administrative leave usually means that you're still officially on the payroll. It's conceivable that his pay was reduced (perhaps even down to zero), but Whipkey's still on record as being an employee of the Archdiocese. It may only be a symbolic position, but it's one that sends the wrong message to be sure. And Archbishop Chaput gets 100% of the credit for that message.
Father Whipkey may have been stripped of his priestly duties, but he hasn't been stripped of his clerical collar. I'm surprised you don't give me credit for knowing he's on leave. After all, you made a post on the last thread I posted about it: Archdiocese: Priest still on leave [Only Vatican can defrock Fr Whipkey, the naked jogging priest]
