GA- Archbishop's meeting on Saturday is “silly,” victims say
For immediate release: Friday, April 4, 2014
Bishop Wilton Gregory's meeting on Saturday with his clergy about his expensive home is just silly.
These clergy have all sworn an oath to respect and obey Gregory. So this is like a king “consulting” with his subjects.
Gregory should stop making excuses and start living humbly.
And keep in mind Gregory's extravagance – and similar extravagance by his colleagues in Camden and Newark and elsewhere – the next time you hear Catholic officials whine that they lack sufficient funds to adequately compensate suffering victims of pedophile priests.
