How is it that heterodox (to put it mildly) “celebrity priests” are feted, praised, wined and dined by our bishops, but the orthodox priests who are trying to shine a light on the scandals destroying Holy Mother Church are disciplined and suppressed?
I guess you can chalk it up to the “Lavender Mafia” continuing to do its thing…and do it well.
LifeSiteNews published an article describing the treatment of Fr. Mark Goring, a “regular guy” kind of priest who had developed a decent sized following on YouTube. I guess you could call him a “celebrity priest” of sorts owing to his online audience, but he’s certainly no media darling like superstar Fr. James Martin.
Fr. Goring has spent the last few months attempting to shed light on what he calls the “corruption network” at work in the Church. We all know it’s happening, and we laity have wondered why more priests and bishops aren’t stepping forward to call the powerful and corrupt to account for their misdeeds.
Well, Fr. Mark tried…and boy, was he smacked down for it!
