Nah. Hit piece. I bet not many gays like "The Courage to be Chaste" written by Fr. Benedict Groeschel and would like the opportunity to impugn his motives.
It turns out that Groeschel doesn't even have the requisite license to practice as a "counseling psychologist" in New York.
It's amazing that you'll depend on one throw away line in a newspaper article to believe the worst about someone who is a man of God.
Fr. Groeschel has a doctorate in psychology from Columbia. Whaddya think he's been doing for the past 30 years? Posing?
Either he has a license to practice as a "counseling psychologist," or he doesn't.
The prosecutor in the article above thinks it's significant. I'd hardly call that a "throw-away" line.
OK. Groeschel writes against homosexuality. Why did he recommend that actively homosexual men be returned to priestly ministry? Or did he not recognize them as such?
How is Egerton "impugning" Groeschel's motives? What are Groeschel's motives?
Why would a priest who is so outspoken against homosexuality participate in returning men to ministry who have an opportunity to prey on young men again?
Did Groeschel think he had cured these men of their homosexual tendencies?
