The first thing they should be asked is if they are gay. Don't forget that 8o % figure that nobody wants to remember. We should be interested in convictions not just accusations.

Ropelski's anniversary of death is today. May he rest in peace.
BUFFALO, N.Y.(AP)_ A Roman Catholic priest pleaded guilty to buying cocaine but denied through his lawyer that he paid for the drugs with church money.
Monsignor Stanley Ropelski, 62, of Lackawana is to be sentenced on July 13. Prosecutors agreed to recommend probation.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Joe Guerra said Wednesday that Ropelski used an intermediary to buy hundreds of dollars of cocaine at a time, sharing the drugs with young men he befriended.
One of the men told investigators that Ropelski used church money to support his habit. Ropelski's lawyer, Michael Taheri, denied that, and Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dillon said an investigation was inconclusive.
''That money comes in in buckets. There's no way to trace that,'' Dillon said.
Ropelski resigned from St. Michael the Archangel Church in suburban Buffalo in August.
Ropelski admitted buying cocaine in 1987. The Buffalo News quoted law enforcement sources as saying that Ropelski was implicated in many other drug buys over a six-year period ending in 1993.
he is dead, let him rest in peace!

Malone and Toodles are plotting against me. They are sending Slubecky to get an AK-47 to assassinate me.

The Chesterton Academy will not thrive if Poblocki has not changed his ways. Period. I could tell you stories about what he did as head of the school in Dunkirk that would make your hair curl (if you still have any). The teachers, however, could tell you even better stories. Poblocki made quite a name for himself in Chautauqua County. The principal of the school predicted if the parents didn't get rid of Poblocki, the school would be closed within three years guaranteed. So we got rid of him. And the Diocese was careful not to place him at any parish where there was a school. The issues were his temper and his being a control freak. So now he's opening his own school independent of the diocese. Go figure. It will be interesting to see how this plays it. I hope he has changed for the better, but I doubt it.

How old are you? 12? I have watched your nonsense and said nothing. Leave the Msgr. alone. Period. Your incessant posting is very annoying. There are many local blogs that you would be welcome in. Do you need help finding one?

Dave Roach was caught by the Provincials that year. He had been dropping pornographic videos around Ft. Erie for two years before being caught. What was the outcome?

The "Boy Toy" is NOT a priest. Father David Glassmires boyfriend is in fact decades younger than Fr. Dave, a kid, not a priest.! Last Thursday, Fri, Sat. I saw him at Fr. Daves(my neighbor) house all night long...I went to bed and the "BoyToy" still didn't leave. This weekend Fr. Daves "Pad" was rather quiet....is he actually spending some time at Ascension Parish in Batavia like he should? The Batavian should research this since the DOB is ignoring it! A Catholic priest and his open "Boy Toy"....real Catholic!
Toy remains a toy.And nothing else.
