More Catholic Scandals

About a month ago, the media reported about a new Catholic Church scandal when a large number of priests were discovered on Grindr.  That would be bad enough, but the investigation was prompted by news that at least 16 different mobile devices were logging into the gay hook-up app from “non-public areas of the Vatican City” – which means housing and the rectory (I will refrain from my usual rectory joke).  We hear that a new list of priests found on the app is about to go public.

Earlier this summer, Monsignor Jeffrey Burrill resigned.  Burrill was the administrator for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.  In addition to this prestigious position, he was seen in some other positions in various gay bathhouses and on Grindr.  And Burrill wasn’t the only resignation.  A Brazilian bishop was asked to tender his resignation to the Pope after two videos of him “pleasuring himself” during a video chat were leaked.  Bishop Tomé Ferreira da Silva confirmed that he was in the video and that it was leaked by a “close associate”.  Talk about being defrocked!
