But Father Groeschel is a great and living saint.

Do saints berate victims of sexual abuse?

Again you are accepting a newspaper story as fact without any other confirmation or corraboration.

Saints are not sugar-coated perfections. They have flaws and other problems. You know being canonized does not depend on perfection in disposition. Were that true none of the Irish and Celtic saints would be saints.

Funny, you had a much more critical eye when dealing with Michael Rose's reporting in Goodbye, Good Men than you do with this particular reporter, who at least had the "decency" to hide his credentials as the head of a Dallas homo-promo organization.

You are a piece of work.

And we know that Buddy Cotton was a "victim" of sexual abuse BECAUSE............?????????? His accusation is tantamount to conviction, right? Well, maybe he was victimized and maybe he wasn't. This article leaves us remarkbaly uninformed as to the actual details the victimization. We just have to take the newsie's word for it, right?

Assuming that Mr. Cotton was, in fact, victimized that does not exempt him from conducting himself morally thereafter nor prohibit Fr. Groeschel from calling him to account for his shortcomings. That's Fr. Groeschel's job.
