After some reflection on the article from that liberal rag and the things that were said in it, and after some discussion with some friends about Bishop Wingle, I want to publicly distance myself from any innuendo surrounding Bishop Wingle that my blog post might have caused.
Please pray for the good Bishop. The lavendar mafia in the Church is well entrenched and exacting a terrible price on good men.
And speaking of bizarre, do you not find it strange that Fr. Tom Rosica went off the wagon with this statement?
“It doesn’t smell right,” says Rosica, a Toronto-based member of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, which advises the Pope on, among other things, how to handle sex abuse scandals.
“When the (resignation) announcement came out, I had a number of bishops phoning me and say, ‘What the hell is going on?’ And I said, ‘You’re asking me!’ ”
Is this the proper disposition and language for an official spokesperson for the Catholic Church?
“What the hell is going on?”
Tsk, tsk, Father. Such crude language for someone normally careful and calculating. Such an overreaction.
In fact, I think there is a story within a story here.
Let’s get to the root of the story:
1) Who tipped the Toronto Star reporters off that Bishop Wingle was not around anymore?
2) What pressure was put on Bishop Wingle to resign and where did it come from?
Something doesn’t smell right, but it’s not coming from where the wind is blowing.
