As a practicing Roman Catholic, I think it's awful that Fr.

Shame on the DA and Bishop Cunningham for allowing this to happen. Fr. Val had to pay back what he stole and also went to jail, but because Fr. Lafache knows people in "high places" with "lots of money" who bailed him out, he gets away with it.
To all you parishioners of St. Anthony's who keep defending him, WAKE UP because your beloved pastor

nothing but a lying thief!

And what about the bookkeeper? Why hasn't anything been said about her for mismanaging church funds?
I agree sbout the bookkeeper she is a lso up at the turning stone. What about the parish council also.

The difference in Fr, Val and Fr LaFache is that Fr Vals assets were recoverable but Fr LaFaches are long gone into the casino cauffers and unrecoverable. The church rather forgive and forget quickly as to not recieve another black eye. You can't sqeeze blood from a stone so what would be the point.

SPOT ON !!! I give my money to the church, as do many others, with the faith that it will be used for the good of the church and parish. Not for The Casino !! They should make the findings public. We as parishioners deserve the truth. If he is guilty, he should pay the same price as Fr.Val.

Yeh, Val paid it back so he got punished. Tony says "Gaetano" and the DA and the bishop look the other way.

I DONT KNOW WHY PEOPLE PUT FATHER LAFACHE ON SUCH A PEDISTAL. HE DOES NOT REPRESENT GOD IN ANY IN BUT WHAT HE WEARS. HE NEEDS TO GO BACK TO HIS CALLING AND FIND JESUS AGAIN.

How come this is hush-hush with the tv media ? Fr. Val made the tv coverage.

I wonder what kind of records Fr. Lafache kept on his gambling "career." Probably "just about even" like every other loser gambler that fails to keep track of his wagers.He was reportedly depressed.Longtime losing= big time depression!

Again, no one knows if any money was "taken." That's why the diocese should do the right thing and remove the veil of secrecy.

Why do people belong to such an orginazation?

You people are so fuking stupid. Just told you that Turningstone keeps records of all you spend on your casino card. It isn't rocket science. You get a warrant and ask the casino to turn over the records and you'll know exactly what he spent. Is it true his relative is a lawywer? But people the truth is within the DA's office jurisdiction. If they want to know if he stole any money this is all you have to do, you know that is where the church money is.
