One Thing's For Sure, Someone's Going To Sued

Attorney Sharon Bourassa, who represents Stephen Brady of Roman Catholic Faithful, has released a statement claiming that;

"According to a group of priests who remain faithful to Rome, 90 percent of our priests in the Miami archdiocese are non-celibate gays who steal and who own luxury properties. They are known to the hierarchy, and they are bringing their agenda into all levels of the archdiocese... This 90 percent figure, according to these priests, is in the parishes, grammar schools, hospitals, nursing homes, the chancery, high schools and colleges. One priest told us if the non-celibate gays were removed, we would have only ten Catholic churches in union with Rome. What we see is not what is. The good priests who keep in contact with me say that 70 percent of the U.S. bishops are homosexual. Five of the South Florida bishops are homosexual."

Keep your eyes on this one. Brady has a proven track record of exposing scandals such as this. Now I'm just as much in favor of innocent until proven guilty as the next guy, but Brady has already retained a lawyer and released press statement. Pretty gutsy stuff.

If Brady's wrong, he and RCF will be ruined and discredited forever (and deservedly so). And Brady knows that.

But if Brady's RIGHT...? You fill in the blanks.

I suspect that a lot of people are going to hunker down and try to ignore this story. Oscar Wilde sued the Marquis of Queensbury for libel and his whole not so secret life got exposed at the trial. When you go to court all bets are off.

"Better that only a few Catholics should be left, staunch and sincere in their religion, than that they should, remaining many, desire as it were, to be in collusion with the Church's enemies and in conformity with the open foes of our faith."
–St. Peter Canisius (1521-1597)

The worst part of this whole story (which is being repeated over and over again around the country) is that it has the simple virtue of explaining many observed facts.

Call me a cynic, but I suspect that if the allegations prove true, the news won't get repeated all that much outside the blogsphere, and if they're proved false, RCF diehard fans will figure that they were true in spirit if not in fact, and again no one will hear about it outside the blogsphere.
