PaddyMac wrote about this event. Appropriately, he condemns having Weakland anywhere near the new Archbishop. Unfortunately, it is not because he condemns what Weakland did, but more in the nature of wishing the whole matter swept under the rug.
Then Paddy takes it one more step over the line with this:
Anyhow, SNAP is hitting new Archbishop Jerome Listecki with this two days after his installation. They complained earlier about him, but to be honest, SNAP blunts its points by complaining about practically anyone in a miter. Listecki by all indications is on board with the diocese’s current approach of calling the cops and taking no chances.Excuse me? Just where the hell does Paddy get off telling the victims of sexual assault that they should stop trying to hold the Diocese responsible for allowing the outrages that were committed upon them when they were children. Does he lack that much insight? Perhaps he should read the Milwaukee Magazine article of two men who were sexually assaulted by a mother superior. He should be able to find the article an easy read, since it was written by Jessica McBride, of all people.
Sad to say, Paddy's tactlessness is pale in comparison to the idiotic and inexcusable comments made by Charlie Sykes on his show Wednesday morning. Sykes basically came out and said that these survivors of sexual assault should just shut up and go away. And this fool had the nerve to call me insensitive?
Steve Wexler should have a long talk with Sykes, before he gets the station sued again. Better yet, Wexler should try to find someone who isn't so intellectually and morally corrupt to do the show. We already gave a suggestion on who would be infinitely much better for them and for their listeners.
