Fr. Andrew Greeley Should be Defrocked

While I'm a defender of priests in general and deplore how because of the misbehavior of a few deviants all priests are mocked by late night comedians as pedophiles. Having said that, here is an example of a priest I can not defend. In the Chicago Sun-Times, Fr. Andrew Greeley writes a regular column. His most recent column makes indefensible and unfounded claims of racism against Gov. Palin and Sen. McCain.
McCain increasingly acts like an angry, befuddled cancer survivor and treats his rival like a field n----- who is just barely human. He does not talk to him, will not shake hands with him, will not even look at him,
Beyond disgusting. As bad as the ugly nature of the accusation is the dishonesty of Greeley in his description of Sen. McCain towards his opponent Sen. Obama. This creep is supposed to be a Catholic priest and here he is giving false witness against his fellow man. Millions of Americans have seen Sen. McCain shake Sen. Obama's hand before each debate and then proceed to treat him with respect. Greeley's behavior is every bit as embarrassing to the church as any of the other scandals. Some could argue his is worse in that while the others committed evil in private he deliberately committed his in a public forum. I'm not one to argue the degree of sins. I'll just say Greeley needs to reassess his hateful ways before he can be respected as a Catholic priest again.
