I have a feeling that the sentiments in the citation will not be shared by the people in his diocese that he coldly stuck the knife into when he took up his post. There were casualties who are still suffering from the damage he did to their lives.
The Rt. Rev. Edward J. Konieczny is a friend of The Big Boss. They went to college together. The Big Boss does not like it in the slightest if her friend is criticised. It certainly pays to have friends in high places. You might not be able to get away with murder, but you can certainly get away with destroying lives. Heck, if you only do your dirty work in private and say the right things in public you can even end up getting a gong for being "against all forms of injustice and unfairness."
