Walter's Goose Was Cooked
Unbelievable. This rates high on the hubris scale.
The Rev. Christopher J. Coyne, the priest who replaced the Rev. Walter H. Cuenin at Our Lady Help of Christians parish in Newton, revealed at a meeting with parishioners last week that officials of the Catholic Archdiocese of Boston asked him in June if he would be interested in replacing the outspoken Cuenin. That was two months before the completion of the financial audit that archdiocesan officials said led them to ask for Cuenin's resignation.
The news outraged parishioners, who say it shows that the audit was never the real reason Cuenin was ousted.
A friend of mine in Boston always keeps talking about the archdiocesan "Stupid Committee" there that cooks up wild stuff like this that makes the church look horrrrrrrible on the front pages.
Boston's not the only place with such a body of idiots, theirs is just the longest one running.
