"Do I Wish I Didn't Feel His Biceps?, Yes"

Bishop Lynch of Petersburg, Florida had to pay off his assistant last year, a married father of two, for "overstepping the boundaries of their relationship". The article here.

The $100,000 was no admission of guilt you understand.

From the article:

Among the claims, Urbanski alleged that the bishop: rubbed down Urbanski's legs and upper body after he had competed in a triathlon, booked only one hotel room for the two of them when they traveled together on a couple of occasions, frequently invited Urbanski to his house after work to swim in his pool, and took pictures of Urbanski in his Speedo bathing suit.

Urbanski quoted the bishop as telling him: ``I have a problem. I don't know what to do. I've struggled with my sexuality for the past 30 to 40 years.''

``Do I wish I didn't feel his biceps? Yes,'' he said. ``Do I understand the confusion? Of course. But I know what I did do, and what I didn't do. It's in the eye of the beholder.''

REALY now ...'I wish I didn't feel his biceps'! What scandal...Maybe there is an island of prayer and penance out in the deep Pacific Ocean somewhere where these wimpy men can go 'find themselves' and find the Faith again. When the leaders have fallen...what will become of the followers...? I think we already know. Look around....
