...And Don't Let The Door Hit Your Ass On The Way Out
As he hauls ass with lightning speed

Three weeks ago, Father "Al" was caught playing patty-fingers in the Holy Water. OK... I'm not condoning or approving of it, but I understand that this sort of thing sometimes happens. He's a man who succumbed to a temptation that certainly is normal. What I find abnormal is just how quickly he dumped The Church.

I personally know a man who was an active priest, who (unfortunately) broke his vows. Like I said... that's one thing. But at least that man never left The Church.

On the other hand, Father "Al" couldn't jump ship fast enough. I can't help but wonder how strongly he actually believed in little things --- like The Real Presence of the Sacrament of Confession.

Here's some of the article from the New York Times;
‘Padre Oprah’ Joins Episcopal Church

MIAMI (AP) -- A popular Miami priest and media personality known as ''Father Oprah'' has left the Catholic Church and joined the Episcopal Church after he was photographed cavorting on the beach with his girlfriend.

The Rev. Alberto Cutie (KOO'-tee-ay) was removed from his Miami Beach church after photos of him kissing and embracing a woman appeared in the pages of a Spanish-language magazine earlier this month.

He was received into Episcopal Church in a ceremony Thursday at Trinity Cathedral. He must complete other requirements before serving as an Episcopal priest.
Remember, within three weeks of getting caught playing house, he abandons what should have been some core beliefs. And for a sect that denies those same basics.

For some people it seems the priesthood is just an easy way of making a living and getting their ego stroked.

Apparently a lot more than egos were being stroked!

The fact that he joined the Episcopal "Church" (and I use the term loosely) so quickly,shows that he really didn't belong in the Catholic Church to begin with. I do not recognize the Episcopal Church as legitimate, but it's better that he leave to join them rather than stay behind and further pollute the true Church.

"He must complete other requirements before serving as an Episcopal priest."

What sort of requirements? Swallowing when he gives fellatio?

Unbelievable! He makes the equally scandalous John Stone (formerly EWTN's Father Francis Mary) look good!
