Not so much of a scandal here as consenting adults are involved, but some folks are claiming a Catholic priest has boyfriend(s) on the side. That would be legal and perfectly ethical, of course, but some might think a gay Catholic priest is a wee bit of a hypocrite.

 

The mouth of the beast is not a clever place to hide.

 

Cupich suspended him in March, based on claims that he had engaged in "improper conduct involving adult men." Forbidden by his order to make comments, Phillips could not defend himself publicly.

We are now dealing with Institutional hypocrisy.  People walk into a court of Law, place their hand on the Bible -- and swear to tell the truth.

 

How is a gay priest different?
