what's the big deal? something like this is the "chicago way". People in chicago repeatedly and proudly send crooks into office,why should the Church in chicago be any different? I'm pretty sure that when this all gets settled he'll be made Democratic Committeeman or Lt. Gov or something.

Money is the root of all evil....say it, know it and don't get sucked in by it...I have met Fr. Regan, he is just like the guy next door...one out of every 4 people misappropriate funds that aren't theirs, priest, lawyer, doctor, accountant, janitors, whoever. Look around, it is happening everywhere right under your nose....

"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." (1Tim 6:10 KJV)

Say it, know it; but get it right. One out of four? Got a citation on that?

So, this means he'll go to prison like any other person? Therapy works but how will he repay the parish? Is he not responsible because of an addition? What are the consequences for this crime... or will he be transferred to another parish?

The Catholic priesthood is filled with sexual predators, thieves, hypocrites, bigots, and the biggest scum bag of all... a Nazi pope who supports and reinstates an excommunicated piece of crap who says Jews were not gassed during WWII. So, what's the big deal about a priest stealing $300K? He'll probably be made a cardinal for his efforts.

He had no problem with his "addition", it was his "addiction" that caused the downfall.

Even priests are human. We all sin. Christ died for our sins. Sounds like Walter-Joliet,Il is very bitter...must not have been smart enough to be an altar-boy when in grade school.
