The Anchoress explains what we do, and do not, know about the apparent suspension of Father Corapi, a favorite on EWTN. Her counsel to not rush to judgment is wise. And, she is undoubtedly correct when she writes that there is something excessive among the hero-worshippers of the "truth-telling" priests on EWTN.
(N.B. One of those EWTN priests, Msgr. Stuart Swetland, really is a hell of a good guy and completely without the bombast of his colleagues.)
Still, everytime I flip channels and come across the supremely self-confident Corapi screaming about whatever cause he is embracing on any given day, I confess I have had the thought: Me thinks the gentleman doth protest too much. Stridency is rarely evidence of real, genuine faith.
It is also telling that Father Corapi's statement is so breathtakingly self-centered as to cause one to question whether he has any clue about why the Church must take all accusation of priestly impropriety seriously.
