Chicago's Continuing Catholic Scandal

Reported by Roeser:

The Rockford, Illinois diocese will not send seminarians to St. Mary of the Lake, Mundelein for training. Two upperclassmen propositioned a Rockford youth for homosexual favors. So much for the change that has been promised in archdiocesan public relations pronouncements

We're aware of a few attorneys who will be watching this carefully. Over time, it's possible that they could fund their grandchildrens' collegiate educations.

You know, generation-skipping trusts, and all that...

There's a history here.

The man who ran St. Mary of the Lake Seminary, Mundelein when it was a hot-house of homosexual excess…and who was quoted in the “Sun-Times” as saying he does not regret ordaining Fr. Dan McCormack, who is now serving time for child abuse…is second in command of the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. He is Gerald Kicanas, now bishop of Tucson, having been promoted from Mundelein (as were all others who ran the dissolute institution) to auxiliary bishop of Chicago and then to Tucson. In Tucson, Kicanas led Tucson through the filing of Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization to the point where he ponied up $22 million in settlement for victims of priest child abuse.

Last month Kicanas received an award name for…who else?.. the late Joseph Cardinal Bernardin
... for “efforts in handling the sexual abuse both locally and nationally.”

Yah. The award may have been surreptitiously sponsored by the very same lawyers we mentioned above. After all, they have the money for it...

And just so you pew-sitters know which way the wind is blowing:

Kicanas is slated to become the next president of the U. S. Catholic Conference of Bishops.

The frosting on the cake, so to speak.

Actually the information that you put on your website on July 29th was incorrect. You had the wrong Diocese, (it was not a 'Rockford youth', not even a Rockford seminarian) and they were not two upperclassmen. I suppose if you are going to put something on the internet you don't have to have your facts straight. There may be people who may be more sympathetic to your cause if you checked out your stories before just putting out slander on someone without the real story.
