  • Don't make me lurk at Fisheater's for the rest of it!  :laugh2:

    I was taken in by Ken Roberts many years ago.  He was an outrageously funny speaker who liked young men.

    He's been the author of From Playboy to Priest

    I've been more and more wary of Catholics who seek attention these days.

    This is what I'm worried about. I know he is in a tough position, I'm just uneasy. I wonder if it's the move that a truly humble priest would make. It's definitely more glamorous than suffering out a few quiet years out of public view and I think that's the part that scares me for him. If maybe he's addicted to his celebrity. Maybe it is God's plan for him and he is doing it in all humility and I'm being too hasty in my judgment. I don't know.

  • Wow, he has a Youtube blacksheepdog speech.  :shocked:

     It does not serve the faithful well, except the types who view the Holy Priesthood as a good job.

    It's all over at FE.  Someone even called him a saint...

  • That's what happens when you are shackled by the novus ordo pseudo religion.

    But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil.

  • Thanks.  I know a few NO priests who have suffered in a humble, Catholic manner injustices heaped on them.

    Corapi voices contempt for the whole process.  In earlier times it is unlikely that he would have been considered a good candidate for the priesthoood in the first place.

  • I really hope that Father Corapi gets himself out of this mess somehow.

    I really like his deep voice. Mine is almost (or just as much, I can't really tell sometimes) as deep as his. Sometimes, I practice saying "Hi, I'm Father John Corapi and uh..." in the mirror! Ok, yes, I know I'm not Father Corapi, but it can't hurt to believe can it?  :heretic:

    Ok well, Father Corapi has to have good advice, even if he is a bit of a "celebrity priest". I listened to some audio files he had of the Rosary, and found those to be helpful at the time.
    For those who I have unjustly offended, please forgive me. Please disregard my posts where I lacked charity and you will see that I am actually a very nice person. Disregard my opinions on "NFP", "Baptism of Desire/Blood" and the changes made to the sacra

  • If he is innocent he should stay and fight.  Padre Pio couldn't hear confessions for 11 years!  He didn't quit.  The way he just up and resigns is troubling.

  • Wish I knew how to bring interesting posts from FE here.  Even Matt Abbot is not impressed by the drama.  

    I was never impressed by the $50.00 admission fees to hear him speak or the Anton LeVey affectation.

  • This is a shame and travesty. I very much enjoyed listening to Fr. Corapi in my Neo-Cath days. He was very conservative and would have made a fine Trad priest if he had chosen to go that route.

    As for the YouTube speech, the logic is schizophrenic. He says the process is fatally flawed and he is unjustly being thrown out like yesterday's trash and assumed guilty. On the other hand he probably deserves it anyway (even though he is innocent) and the Bishops have the "right" to make any decision they see fit.

    This goes back to the flawed Neo-Cath version of blind obedience. Are Catholic bishops absolute despot/ dictators? Is there absolutely ZERO moral recourse for a soul if they have been flat out wronged by a Bishop and/ or the system? He says he did not want to fight because he'd be in a confrontational situation with "the Church" yet he says the Bishop of Corpus Christi, due to pressure from "other bishops" forced his superiors to investigate him or else the Bishop would release libelous letters publicly!!!

    So, on the one hand, he seemingly accuses the Corpus Christi bishop of blackmailing his superiors, yet he doesn't want to be in a "confrontational relationship" so he'll just resign? Does he realize what he's saying? If this is truly the case, he has a right out of justice to clear his name and any responsibility for confrontation would be on the Churchmen who are forcing the issue.
