    BISHOP LOVERDE, WHERE IS FR. JAMES HALEY? ^ | January 16, 2012 | Mary Ann Kreitzer
    Well, the word coming down from on high is that Fr. Haley has been excommunicated and defrocked. This has been personally confirmed to me by someone who should know, but don't expect to hear about it anywhere official. There's something about this case that makes authorities skittish. After all, we can't acknowledge the elephant in the sanctuary, the homosexual priest problem. Every new homosexual scandal is met by the three monkeys with ears, eyes, and mouth covered.

    A new law is expected to unleash a flood of litigation against the L.A. Archdiocese by victims of priestly sex abuse. By Ron Russell More storm clouds are gathering for Cardinal Roger M. Mahony. Police are investigating at least 72 of his current and former priests for child molestation. New accusers surface almost daily. Despite fierce resistance, a grand jury has forced him to turn over records related to three accused clerics. More subpoenas appear inevitable. L.A.

  • How Dissident "Catholic" Groups are Trying to Make Gains from the Scandal

    On EWTN radio this morning, I heard a program called "Living His Life Abundantly" with Johnnette Benkovic. Some of you may be familiar with this program.

Here's the blurb on the show from the LHLA web site: ---------------------------------------- How are dissident groups which claim to be "Catholic" using the current scandal to their advantage?...
