CARDINAL SIN MEETS CARDINAL ERROR

From IRISH CENTRAL:

Cardinal Timothy Dolan reportedly agreed that the priests accused of sex abuse should be paid $20,000 in exchange for leaving the priesthood. Abuse victims advocate group Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP) recently published a document from the archdiocese's bankruptcy proceedings that made reference to a proposal to pay up to $20,000 to priests accused of sex abuse who renounce their priesthood.

'SNAP has no credibility whatsoever,' Dolan scoffed. 'To respond to charges like that that are groundless and scurrilous in my book is useless and counterproductive.'

The organization hit back saying Dolan was covering up a major scandal.


Bribery and corruption then. Going down?

CARDINAL SIN MEETS CARDINAL ERROR — 9 Comments

  1. The Cardinal Archbishop of New York is a charming fellow (on the surface). I once thought he was an improvement over his predecessor (Egan, a true horse’s patoot if ever there was one). But now I see that charm is more like that of a snake. As he smiles and charms he spouts the party line and pretends that he has done no wrong.

  2. No, if things get toasty he’ll get a comfortable sinecure in Rome. See Law, Cardinal Bernard.

  3. An evil soul producing holy witness
    Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
    A goodly apple rotten at the heart.

  4. And the nuns being investigated won’t meet with SNAP or invite them to their meetings, either. Lots of nuns who were psychos with rulers in classrooms still walking around.
