Is the fallout still falling?

Archbishop Dolan's recent e-mail to all the priests of the archdiocese and the subsequent J-S article has caused something of a stir.

The original e-mail from His Excellency has already been posted by Terrance.

Dad29 has had a number of interesting comments posted about this.

I tend to agree with the growing, as yet unanswered, chorus of people who want a blunt discussion of the connection between gay priests and priests who prey sexually on teen boys. These are a different category than pedophiles...predatory behavior directed at pre-pubescent children. It doesn't matter whether these were crimes of passion (the gay community is renowned for seeking sex with teens), or crimes of opportunity (the young priest has more opportunities to spend time with boys).

Archbishop Dolan, when are you going to honestly address this question? What are you afraid of...losing the majority of your priests?

I am surprised that no one has posted any comments.

Mike, you ask a very valid question. WHEN will Dolan address the question of his very wayward priests..not to mention the many OTHER problems that still exist in the archdiocese. Does he really think Rome will promote him without doing anything here?
