That's a variation on Rodari's theory.  At the very least, I'd say he was irresponsible, but he also said and did other things with seeming glee that were like liturgical abuses, whether he was apologizing for the Crusades or hanging out with the very "spiritual" Bono for a photo shoot, among other things.
