[quote=JimG]He has not, as far as I know, ever been “sanctioned” by his bishop because in fact he does not speak for the Catholic Church. What he speaks are just his own opinions.
In one sense, you might say he has been sanctioned, since organizationally, with respect to the Church, he remains a parish priest, and that’s probably about as far as he could ever expect to progress given his present circumstances and opinions.
But that probably doesn’t bother him too much. He earns a great deal as a novelist, as well as a professional sociologist, (National Opinion Research Center) so being a parish priest is almost a secondary occupation for him.
Thanks for the info.
If I were to go on TV wearing a shirt with my employer’s name on it to tell folks I disagreed with all of the major decisions of my company’s upper management, I’d probably get fired.
Shouldn’t the same happen to Greeley ?
