Monty Python had a sketch called The Bishop. The Bishop was always arriving moments too late to save a priest from imminent demise.
That Bishop was Episcopalian and a thug. But the real news recently has been about Roman Catholic Bishops and the pervert priests they protect.
A Pennsylvania grand jury accused 300 priests of sexually abusing over 1,000 children over the past 70 years.
Where do we get such men you may wonder? Seminaries. The former Archbishop of Washington, DC Cardinal Theodore McCarrick allegedly sexually molested young seminarians. He was kind of a Harvey Weinstein of the church.
The current Washington archbishop, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, called the news about his predecessor “a terrible disappointment.”
