ANOTHER BISHOP OPTS FORTAKING HIS REWARD ON EARTH

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."

ANOTHER BISHOP OPTS FORTAKING HIS REWARD ON EARTH — 4 Comments

  1. Oh, just a little clarification: they went to seminary together – not college.

    (Yes, I know that on your side of the pond “seminary” is called “theological college”. But over here, “college” refers to undergraduate study.)

  2. Sometimes I wonder about the ordination process. I do not know this bishop or anything about him, but over several decades and in various places I have known clergy who were egotistical, unkind, and not mental giants by any means. Fortunately, they seem to be a minority, but they’re out there. And politics does a way of worming its way into church affairs.
