The case "is still under investigation by the FBI and other members of the intelligence community" to determine if the two assailants...

    Father Paul Nicholson—the Canadian 'missionary priest of the New Evangelization'—has done a lot of unpriestly things, but this tops the list and of course does precisely nothing to minimize the perverse, predatory image of the modern Catholic priest in the eyes of so many scandalized Catholics.
