I don't have the foggiest idea what's happening with the allegations and neither does anybody else. Chalk it up to the glacier-like speed of the DOB "injustice" system.

I don't know if anyone knows what's happening with that. All I do know is that allegations were made and he has not been arrested or thrown in jail for any criminal wrong doings.

So if you ask me, innocent until PROVEN guilty. And no one has proven it yet. And how long has it been now?

Oh cut it out. Barfly is Barfly. He is a nice person and he means no harm and he is no priest. I don't think he would want to be. LOL! Leave him alone. He finally posts something without swear words and you all go nuts!!!!!! No wonder the young are not that nuts about the Church!!!!!

When it gets settled they don't have to arrest because there aren't any charges then. Don't give us that innocent crap because if he was innocent he would be allowed to be in a parish instead of at a cemetery.

She won't do that because they know he did it.

East Siders love St. Ann! St. John Gualbert, St. John Kenty, St. Stan's are all imitating St. Ann's Church and Shrine. That's merging and cooperation according to the Journey of Faith and Grace.

Quit beating around the bush. You probably have his cell phone number. Just call him up, find out what his status is and let us know.

Despite being copy cats, it won't bring in many new people to those churches. Time to close them all down. Holy Week and Dyngus Day do nothing to boost overall membership in any of those churches. Only Eddie and Marty prosper by making money off all the drunkeness and bad behavior.

A lot of priests told me that Fr. Bialkowski was guilty. There is a statue of limitations that stopped them from arresting him. DOB tried to cover up again but they got forced to get him out. DOB would have fought to keep him if he was innocent. Why has Dunkirk Connection wrote about Fr. Bialkowski the way she attacked Fr. Krysa? That doesn't seem too fair to only pick on one priest. Fr. Krysa never molested children and if anything all she had was a personality problem against him.

Well then, SHAME on those priests for not coming forward and reporting it to the proper authorities before the statute of limitations ran out. They are no better than the perpetrator!

How sad that 'a lot of priests told' you that he was guilty. I heard it from a few too. The DOB NEVER tried to cover it up. All they tried to cover up was that THEY (the DOB) were the ones who put him there. Therefore they would NEVER have fought to 'keep him if he was innocent'. He was 'in their way'. Unfortunately (to put it mildly) this is happening all over the US. Bishops and their local hierarchy hanging their priests without even looking into things (although THAT is NOT what happened here; here they instigated it). Look at some of the websites ( http://opusbono.org/inthenews.html , for one)fighting for the rights of priests who have been immediately abandoned by their Bishops and worse.

I don't think any of this would hold up in a court of law - statute of limitations or no statute of limitations. You need some kind of evidence if there is any. Accusing someone of not only touching a thigh, but actual molestation of children is very serious. Its just so strange that if these kind of accusations surfaced after many years, you would want to substantiate them with some kind of evidence that would show this kind of behavior possibly took place. Dig deeper and give us more information as to evidence. Inquiring minds would like to know.

HAHAHA! Oh yeah!.... that holds a lot of water.
Priests lie all the time - whether in the confessional or out of it.

That's still not proof that he's guilty.
That's the DOB "saving face" - and we ALL know how good they are at doing that!

Show is some solid proof of his guilt, and then maybe you'll have a leg to stand on.

That's hear-say. Not admissible in a court of law.
And if you want to be credible, name names, and name the priest.
Then we MIGHT believe you.

First of all, the accusations against Fr. David make no sense. He allegedly touches a boy's thigh, who in turn follows him around like a lost puppy for at least the next ten years but nothing else happens. Does this sound like a molestation case to you? As for Krysa, he is nothing more than a self-serving, pompous blowhard who nearly destroyed my parish, and blew off the sick and dying because he couldn't be bothered. And for that I'm supposed to sing his praises? I admit he had me duped for quite a while, but again I am the worst judge of character of anyone I know.

I'm trying to recall his name. He was a retired priest, helping out in North Evans (when it was still open).
