Do you mean ask him where the money for child support comes from? I hope not from the parish accounts in Yonkers or Corpus Christi.
This is very interesting. I know the monks do not get much monthly. Hmmmmmmmm. I wonder?
One thing I know is that the love child's family has no money. Busia, a younger widow, once told me she has to work two jobs just to pay the bills. Then her daughter throws a fatherless bambino into the mix. My guess would be food stamps, WIC, free child care, whatever else the TAXPAYER provides along with whatever else the daddy provides on the sly. I don't believe there is any court ordered child support since the kid has her mother's last name. It's a good bet the father's name does not appear on the birth certificate. In a case like that, the courts are powerless UNLESS the mother takes the father to paternity court and wins the case. I highly doubt that happened here.

Tony McKegney was drafted 32nd overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft. McKegney was the first Black Canadian hockey player to make an impact in the NHL,[2] and has often been referred to as the Jackie Robinson of professional hockey.
McKegney was born in Montreal, but was adopted soon thereafter, and raised by a white family in Sarnia, Ontario. As a teenager he played Jr.'B' hockey in Sarnia. He was following in the footsteps of his older brother Ian, who had been a star with the Sarnia Legionnaires before moving on to the pros. At age twenty, Tony McKegney signed a contract with the now defunct World Hockey Associationís (WHA) team in Birmingham, just to see the owner illegally renege on the deal after fans threatened to boycott the team for having added a black player to its roster.[3] However, the WHAís loss became the NHLís gain, as McKegney would go on to score over 300 career goals, including 40 in the 1987-88 season. His total of 78 points in the same season would remain the highest ever recorded by a black player until Jarome Iginlaís breakout 2001-2002 campaign. He registered nine 20-goal seasons in a career that lasted over 900 games.

After finishing the 1990-91 with the Chicago Blackhawks, McKegney would spend a season in Italy with AS Varese, as well as three games with the Canadian National Team. He would play 23 games with the San Diego Gulls in 1992-93 before retiring.

McKegney currently does periodic work on behalf of the Red Wings Alumni Association and the Buffalo Sabres Alumni Hockey Team

I would like to say that I find this whole thing about Fr. Anselm to be way out there. F.Y.I.-----he is gay. That's probably hard for some of you to hear------but that is who he is. B.T.W.-------not that it is anyones business------but he was in a relationship with someone. Yes-----he was human & fell in love. At least he wasn't some perv who molested an altar boy. He is a man & a good man who is caring & kind.

Believe it or not-----but he is entitled to find himself and be who God wants him to be. He left Buffalo for a chance to think about his future & to see where God is leading him. Everyone deserves a chance to love and be loved by someone. He still loves God but that doesn't mean he has to live unnaturally for the rest of his life.

Dunkirk Connection you wrote articles about him yet these were articles he asked you not to write. He knew enough that someday you would turn on him.

We all owe a lot to him for being such a good person. He did a lot for Corpus Christi & the E. Side of Buffalo. Let's not turn on him for wanting something for himself. We should thank him for at least trying to be a priest. If more people tried there would probably be more priests.

If he were your son, grandson or nephew------you would understand better. But-----he is not therefore you trash him on this website. To those people with a heart & who are decent, God-fearing people-----don't listen to vicious people like Dunkirk Connection. Open your hearts to good people like Fr. Amselm & let them know you are behind them as their friend & not an enemy. I can't say it about everyone but Fr. Anselm would be the first one to reach out to you if you needed him & he wouldn't try to hurt you like some people tried to hurt him.

Wow, what have you been smokin'? You come on here like you're a supporter and defender of Fr. Anzelm and at the same time announce to the world he's gay? I'm not buying it. As for my columns, he sent a thank you to the Am Pol Eagle for the positive publicity and mentioned me by name. This thank you was published. It was only after he was brainwashed by Miss Preggie that things changed. Can't help but wonder if you are Miss Preggie trying to create a smokescreen.

Any imporatnt date will be good for some kind of celebration at Rio Rancho Ransomville Resort. Who will be invited? Who is going to pay for it! Is Carmella going to bring some chicken wings to the party? Is Bishop Zavala with his two sons from California going to be a guest of honor?

If the Buffalo News were to design a parish, I think it would closely resemble St. Joseph U. Parish; no doctrine,heavy peace and justice, no prolife emphasis. But what would the opposite look like? What local parish would most closely reflect Pope Benedict's views?

Wherever two or more are gathered in my name, there I am also. Why should communion ever be denied?

Preggies mother was Fr. Poblockis bookeepeer, secretary. Preggie
could afford top notch clothing. St. Josaphats is a place to hide from people that know her.

St Mary's can afford to loose a Mass look how many DM had to lose. That's is what happens when a Priest gets two parishes. He is worn out. Give the man a break. Good for him

If Poblocki wasn't such a braggart who has to publish the names of everyone who joins Josaphat's in his bulletin, we would never have known where she was. He loves to brag how many people are joining his REAL Catholic Church. Not a word about those who are leaving. Their names aren't published. LOL. Miss Preggie worked and lived at home. Probably made a minimal contribution to the household if her mother had to work two jobs just to pay the bills. Spent her money on herself, nice clothes etc. So what happened when the baby came and needed 24/7 care? Again, my guess would be FREE child care courtesy of the taxpayers OR lots of financial support from Daddy Warbucks, whoever that may be. Just my opinion for what it's worth.
