Typical media anti-Catholic bias.  Just wanted to put "priest", "meth" and "arrested" in the same headline....

Very good, Allen.  :)

I don't know if pseudo-Bombay is bad or good, or what the intent was in appropriating my name.  Meh, it's not like I've got a copyright claim on the name Dr. Bombay.  It's the internet.  We shouldn't take it too seriously.

There will be no baby throwing, unless he starts extorting money out of folks.  Then I, of course, will demand a cut.  It's only fair since I did build the brand after all.

Presumably the Msgr didn't speak enough Latin.  That must be it.

If you didn't like Velveeta I'd really be starting to worry about you, doctor.  If cross-dressing priests doesn't warm one's heart, I don't know what will.

This priest was Bishop Egan's secretary way back when.  We all wondered when he was given the choice position of being pastor of the cathedral.  I had big problems with him when he would write reviews of Broadway shows for the diocesan paper.  We're not talking Mary Poppins here...he would give glowing reviews to plays like "Chicago" saying it was "Broadway at its gritty best."  I don't have a problem with someone going to see such shows, if they can handle it..but writing a review praising it for the Catholic paper?

Bishop Lori, now of Baltimore, must've have known something about this guy, too.

There was a priest who was persecuted by the late Michael Jude Faye in this diocese who years ago complained about "rectory parties."

Funny how Egan always had the time to persecute good priests no matter where he went yet couldn't figure out what was going on under his nose for years. This is the same Egan who took back his apology to victims of clerical abuse and their families, remember. The behavior patterns all line up.
