As I have mentioned on another Corapi thread, what most troubles me about this situation are things that I have read at his new blog, including this from the About page:
A member from his media team shared “this is a very exciting move for John and his fans, as for the first time, in a long time, John will be directly in touch with this fan-base by way of social networks.”

I won't judge the man regarding any allegations as I am entirely ignorant of the facts. I also don't know whether he is getting anything even close to a fair treatment in this ordeal. However, what is a "media team" refer to in regards to a Catholic priest? And, fans and fan-base? Really? I would have a hard time imagining less relevant terms to the priesthood. I can't imagine why a priest would allow such references to be used on his page. It sets off alarms for me.

Another oddity to me is the tagline at the top of his page, where is written "Truth. Hope. Unleashed." Unleashed? Was he then "leashed" as a priest? I have to say that the use of "unleashed" by a man in this situation gives the impression of a celebration of a newly acquired freedom that was lacking and missed previously. In this context the term makes me uncomfortable, and like the above comments leaves me wondering about what is really happening here.

Billy Graham had a huge “fan ‘ base and a big media corporation to handle the rallies, the huge speeches, his books and videos, etc....AND his donations.

this is a new time, we have to reach out with social media. And the church is WAAAAAY behind on this.

Of course he was. Every priest is.
