Catholic leaders should be accountable and respectful of their local cities. Law breakers should serve their punishments. Exorsisms, worshiping idols and icons, and placing deviates with the congregation may be the wishes of a few church leaders, but they should respect and abide by the standards of the neighborhoods. I saw Cardinal Mahoney on C-Span,last month, say he had no intention of obeying any immigration laws. Whether Pope, Cardinal, or church janitor they are expected to abide by all the laws of society which include laws pertaining to sexual deviants or illegal immigrants. Maybe our government should reconsider the church's tax exempt status, if they don't respect laws of our government.

I wonder how involved some of these offended members of CCOP. Are they in any of the ministries at the church? Do they support the church? Or are they ones that go to church on Sunday and you never see them helping out at St Vincent de Paul, having their children in the choir or altar servers, or in any of the ministries of the mass.
They are quick to judge, but what's in their background that would pass any investigation.
