I’ve only been in the Arlington diocese for a short time and was not aware of this story or Fr. Haley. Does anyone have any insight or know of this case and the details? I thought our bishop was a pretty orthodox guy…now I’m not so sure.
It disturbs me greatly that a priest with integrity and courage to do the right thing is being punished. Is this the type of reaction we can expect from bishops who are informed that major problems exist in their diocese? This bishop certainly appears to support the “don’t ask, don’t tell” mentality which I feel is part of the problem in our church.
