|The pastiest of pasty-faced prelates|
The Bishop of Tampa/St Petersburg, Robert J Lynch, needs to be deposed for the good of the Catholic Church and the souls in that diocese. This has to be said plainly. I call upon the Pope to remove said Bishop from his See, for the good of the Catholic Church and the souls of that diocese.
To the long list of his derelictions of duty, his questionable manner of living, his cowardice, the protection of sodomite priests in his diocese, his use of church donations to pay off those who brought credible accusations of homosexual advances, the strong hint of financial malfeasance in awarding lucrative diocesan construction projects to his "special friends" and his indifference in the face of the starvation death of Terry Schiavo can now be added his open promotion of the mortal sin of sodomy. Such a man is unfit to be a Bishop of the Catholic Church. He is a disgrace to his cloth, a cause of scandal whose continued presence as a Bishop gives strong evidence of an outrage that needs to be immediately addressed by Rome.
Here is the evidence:
Glancing over these links suggests the emergence of a clear pattern. This pattern becomes even more visible when we read some of Lynch's most recent statements, which are very telling.
Judas has nothing on him.
Are you listening, Pope Francis? Perhaps you might put your song-writing efforts aside for awhile and deal with such episcopal traitors as the one who now disgraces the Diocese of Tampa/St Petersburg.
