Msgr.Jim lisante is a disgrace. He acts like a college frat boy than a priest. I have witnessed on several occasions sacrilegious and irreverent behavior. He gave a commencement speech @Molloy College talking about sex. Sex....sex .and referring to God w a reference to a '90s song "what if God was one of us....just a slob like one of us' really Referring to almighty God as a slob!!!! N he is a so called priest????? Monsignor????? And another occasion he married a friend of the family. I witnessed him at the reception kissing women's hands including mine when introduced which I disgustingly pulled away from. He also took his blessed Priest s white collar n passed it around for those in attend ene ...like a prop to stage pictures with. This is a priest ??????? Disgusting individual....poor example of a Catholic let alone a religious.
