No whine before the Times

The New York Times interrupts this mourning period ... to let an ex-priest vent his long-repressed resentments. It seems that -- despite ample evidence to the contrary -- all the good priests got passed over in the John Paul II era. This from the same guy who opposed leprechaun-like Irish monks to the dour St. Augustine in his collossally stupid *How the Irish Saved Civilization.* Hasn't he ever read the Irish penitentials? Yeesh. I do have a feeling that Father Cahill never got the reverence he thought he deserved in his clerical days. He'll get it now from the Times, as long as he plays a good "Uncle Pat."

UPDATE: Hat tip to Eric Scheske.
