What happened to LiPuma,Litwin, Manganello, Grosz, Slubecky, Zepfel,Weldgen, Whitney, Orlowski, Mattulke, Gaglione, Kowalczyk, and many others desiring to be advanced? No luck!No 'divine' help? No 'divine'election? What about Sicari? No papacy?
According to Grosz, Sicari was suspended. Something about missing funds from Catholic Charities and Sacred Heart parish in Bowmansville. Bad timing for this scandal!

Weldgen purchased a house in Wheatfield for cash of 250,000 dollars. Is he another 'poverello' like St. Francis of Assisi???

Never trusted Catholic Charities. You never know where the money is going. I haven't given in years and don't plan on giving in the future. I give to charities that are trustworthy.

You really need to move on and stop wishing evil on your old parish. We were good to you and you know it. You are a despicable and miserable person who should be in jail for stealing and computer invasion, not to mention for what you did to your ex-wife's son. Have fun with your new hippo wife! How long will this marriage last?
Not a bad come back for a punching bag. You're really tough behind a computer. Our regards to your wife and the time that was spent with her at the rectory when the pastor was away. Hope you can still put out after all that energy spent. If not, tell her to come and see us. We will take care of her.

I hate to tell you this but although I have the uptmost respect for the LGBT community, Jesus was not gay. He was kind and loving to all and yes, the Church has profaned his message. That is what causes the pain.

Oh Booh Booh, so much pain inflicted on the poor gays. They are theeee most victimized, abused people in the entire universe and have to struggle with AIDS on top of everything. They are not to blame for any of their actions, these poor misunderstood perverts.
They should move to some moslem country, where they will find real understanding.

Dear Mr./Ms. ANON,
Me balls be itchin', wanna scratch?
If you are not out of puberty yet, get off this blog. You should know the meaning of constant use of foul language. It denotes immaturity, but worse a very disturbed and sick attitude toward sex. Perverse sex is demonic and your language and the language of many on this blog the way they defame people is perverse and demonic. I pray that the Virgin Mary crushes all your inflated parts.( I hope she forgives me for using her name on this blog.)
