Writer responds to Cardinal Wuerl’s complaint

Go ahead and do damage to me in this city, Cardinal Wuerl. I don’t care. I will not surrender one inch to PC prelates like yourself who punish dutiful priests while pandering to the enemies of the Church.

This moronic controversy, triggered by a self-described practicing “lesbian Buddhist” who effortlessly mau-maued Cardinal Wuerl into a craven apology and trumped-up “administrative leave” order to Fr. Marcel Guarnizo, is a grotesque farce beyond the satirical imagination of Evelyn Waugh.

I petition the Holy See — if anyone happens to read TAS there — for urgent relief. This scandal is sickening.
