Is it because he refused to visit sick people, saying, “Come to me
when you’re healthy?”
Is it because he said that “working weekends” entitled him to play golf Monday through Friday?
Is it because he had a gigantic pornography stash in the rectory?
Is it because he had magazines like _America_ in the rectory?
Is it because he was hanging out in hot tubs with married women?
Is it because he expressed hope for the death of St. John Paul II or Pope Benedict XVI so he’d get the pope who would “allow” [insert liberal litany here]?
Is it because he told parishioners to not help the poor and instead to refer them to charities?
Is it because he insults people with disabilities?
Is it because he insults laity who want adoration and other devotions?
Is it because he tells you in confession that a sin isn’t a sin anymore, that it’s OK and/or you need a psychologist?
Is it because he does the exact opposite and practically refuses absolution because you’re such a horrible sinner?
Is it because he treated his parishioners so badly that someone wouldn’t receive last Rites if he was the priest, and then he mocked the person for it from the pulpit, without so much as a “maybe I should treat people better”?
I could go on, but now it’s time to ask:
Or is it because you don’t like him enforcing canon law?
Maybe you just don’t like his personality?
Or he’s so busy being a priest that he doesn’t have the time for socializing that you expect?
