Who said that no one has heard about this? It was your initial post that was unclear. In addition to not clearly laying out the facts of the case, honestly, the lack of capitalization and punctuation in some places made an already confusing post even more difficult to read.
The priest in Miami is named Alberto Cutie and is called Father Oprah, as you finally pointed out, because of his TV-friendly, Oprah-style of preaching. He was a high-ranking priest of the Archdiocese of Miami who supervised the archdiocesan radio station. He was a media mega-star throughout Latin America, because his youthful good looks and charisma were seen on Spanish-language telecasts throughout the region. He was less prominent in English-language media outside of South Florida.
He was photographed kissing (not having sex, but kissing) a woman (not a girl, but a 35-year old woman) on a beach in South Florida. The Spanish tabloids immediately ran with this story several months back, then CNN picked it up, and he was suspended from the priesthood. The immediate reaction in the South Florida Hispanic community was to defend him (crowds lined up outside his parish, with signs supporting him), but after he admitted having an affair and ultimately announced his defection to the Episcopal Church, where he promptly married his paramour, support waned. The Archbishop of Miami stated that the priest had never informed him that he was contemplating leaving the Church for another communion, a fact that made the priest’s actions even less popular. This was compounded by the fact that the Episcopal bishop who received him had never even contacted the Archbishop of Miami as a courtesy, despite the media spectacle that was already underway, and the fact that the two had worked together on various ecumenical projects.
The Episcopal Church’s canons require someone to be a member of that church for at least a year before being admitted to active ministry. While Cutie has not declared that he has intends to seek admission to the Episcopal Church’s priesthood, it is widely expected that he will do so.
I share your wondering how he could do so in good conscience. There is a wide range of belief within the Anglican Communion, and most Roman Catholic beliefs are to be found, even if only among a minority. So Cutie could continue to believe in the Immaculate Conception, Assumption, the sacrificial nature of the Mass, the sacrament of confession, etc., and find himself numbered among the “Anglo-Catholic” Anglicans, some of whom who believe these things. However, such beliefs are not required, and in many places they are actively opposed. How a priest could in conscience allow himself to be incardinated in such a setting, or even be received into it as a layman, for that matter, is beyond me.
