Sanctimonious Cardinal Timothy Dolan has been on a crusade against immorality: he opposes gay marriage, and was extremely irate that we might expect the Catholic church to cover its employees with insurance that pays for contraception. How dare we ask the church to pay any benefits to sluts?
It seems, though, that he’s perfectly willing to compromise the church’s high moral stand in one case:
Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York authorized payments of as much as $20,000 to sexually abusive priests as an incentive for them to agree to dismissal from the priesthood when he was the archbishop of Milwaukee. […]
But a document unearthed during bankruptcy proceedings for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and made public by victims’ advocates reveals that the archdiocese did make such payments to multiple accused priests to encourage them to seek dismissal, thereby allowing the church to remove them from the payroll.
So, on the scale of sins the church will close its eyes to, raping children in the name of the Lord rates very low, but using contraception? Unforgivable.
