Good Lord, looks like the Christians, like the conservatives, eat their own!

And every comment is backed up with a sanctimonious ‘we’ll pray for him” or “I always thought something was strange about him” or “why doesn’t he just become a quiet martyr to the cause.

A lot of the negativity...and wow, is it ever going full blast on the Catholic sites/blogs...is jealousy of the man’s success at his ministry and how many lives he touched (yeah, but...but...) or its just because he is a priest and we have to knock them down.

With enemies like these, Catholic priests, Christians, and conservatives sure don’t need enemies.

BTW, previous public religious figures probably wouldn’t have survied the internet either..ha.

Yeah, go ahead and remind me that you are just giving “ my opinion”.

Worth posting again....nail head...and for the slow of mind...he is not “revered”, he is unique because he is orthodox and conservative and he is a real man, lacking the feminization some need and desire.

why can’t he be honest? because his lawyers won’t let him? innocent men don’t hire lawyers when there aren’t any criminal or civil charges pending. he is well aware of the woman who is accusing him, his pr statement says he “helped” her more than anyone in his life. he seems to be a self promoter ( especially with his new book, and website ) over promoting faith in Christ. where is the humility? unfortunately, whatever proof of wrongdoing he felt would convict him to the bishop will come out, it always does. unless, of course, the woman is paid a handsome price to stay silent and he lives happily ever after as a miilionaire. ah, the american dream!!
