Tip of the Iceberg?
An embattled Catholic priest, Father Bill Richard of Our Lady of the Lake Church in Rockwall, has resigned after protesters besieged Bishop Gramann asking for his removal. Other Dallas diocese news: A top aid is serving probation for indecent exposure, a priest was recently arrested on child pornography charges in Grand Prairie, and another was recently suspended for getting married.
The saddest thing about it all, is that the diocese apparently has long been on notice about Father Richard’s abuse of children. Here’s hoping we’re not another Boston in the making.
