Perhaps the Springfield diocese should ease off on that stone-casting

by Jeremy Hooper

Yesterday, I posted back-to-back posts about the Springield, Illinois diocese's condemnation of those deviant gays and their deviant sex lives. And now this:

The pastor of St. Aloysius church on Springfield’s north end has been granted a leave of absence after he called 911 from the rectory and told a dispatcher that he needed help getting out of handcuffs.

“I’m going to need help getting out before this becomes a medical emergency,” Father Tom Donovan told a dispatcher who sounds a bit incredulous during the Nov. 28 call.

Bishop Thomas Paprocki—who testified at yesterday's marriage hearing and who has penned one of the letters condemning gays' sex lives—has reportedly accepted Fr. Donovan's leave of absence without further comment. Though he is expected to employ neither leave, absence, nor silence when it comes to condemning us.
