Big headline in the JSOnline
Archdiocese gave $10,000 to priest
...but it's not a Big Deal.
The Archdiocese give the guy $10K to purchase health insurance:
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee gave $10,000 to former priest Franklyn Becker, whose actions were a factor in the archdiocese's multimillion-dollar settlement of sexual-abuse lawsuits in California last week, to help pay his health insurance premiums until he became eligible for Medicare
Exquisite irony is that the "Victim-Justice" crowd, led by Peter Isely, is leading the smear-charge--apparently forgetting that "justice" also has a social context under which the Archdiocese paid Becker.
