Could you enlighten us? What is the "continuing problem"? If you don't know where truth ends and embellishment begins, how do you know that there really is a problem?
Yes, sorry. In an attempt to be just, and not in engage in gossip, I ended up tying myself up in a way that was a misstatement of what I was trying to say.
I was there at the place and time. I know of things that are unsavory and definitely true. I don't see that anything has changed. For example, opaque financial dealings, and the strong presence of the school principal and his family. No one has even tried to offer a rebuttal to the charges.
There have also been things rumored that I have no way of verifying, however I haven't seen anything that the players do not seem capable of. or seems preposterous. I realize such a process does not lend itself to the truth. If I were to say that some person was capable of robbing a bank, it dos not mean he has actually done so.
Also, we must be careful to not enter into the procedures of the Donatists. A priest may be involved in certain personal sins that do not take away his powers as a priest. Where to draw the line between scandal and legitimate and necessary warning?
In the final analysis, however, one must judge one's moral landscape as a whole. One cannot turn one's children over to the wolves, which is the reason most traditionalists fled the N.O. I cannot think of one reason that would allow a person to conclude that it was acceptable to participate in such a mess.
