The Back-and-Forthright Abp. Weakland

Someone who is very familiar with Rembert's locutions told me that he often "speaks to the [particular] audience."

That doesn't always work too well.

Records involving at least one sex-offender priest were maintained in so-called archives at the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, according to a document released Wednesday as part of a pending lawsuit. That would call into question testimony by retired Archbishop Rembert G. Weakland, who dismissed the notion as "antique" and "Old Testament" in a deposition last year.

"I've heard about it, but I've never seen those files, and I don't know if the Archdiocese of Milwaukee has such things," Weakland said in response to a question about "sub secreto or confidential files."

That appears to contradict earlier testimony by Weakland in a 1993 deposition in which he acknowledged the existence of such files and newly released archdiocesan documents - including one addressed to Weakland - that reference the archives.

I've witnessed his forked-tongue tricks, too--not regarding the pervert problem, but instead, the liturgical problem.

More proof Weakland lies/lied. No surprize. All he cares about is covering his own backside while he attempts to destrpy the Catholic Church,

Let's hope that they go after him for purjury.

As I have often said, there are two Remberts and quite dissimilar people. The latter Rembert was hardly lovable and not sure he can be trusted.
