Pay-Day: Blackmail the Catholic Church

14 05 2009

The New York Timeshas an interesting article about former Archbishop Weakland of Milwaukee.  Evidently 20 years ago he had had an affair with a 30 year old man who then blackmailed the Catholic church for $450,000 – what they paid to keep him quiet.

He has a memoir coming out next month which promises to be a good insight into the corruption of the Church.


The archbishop is also one of the first to actually come out of the closet.  He believes that the church’s teachings about women and homosexuals are misguided.  I hope he succeeds in his efforts to reform the church – for if there has to be a church, I’d rather it be a tolerant one.
