Nice work if you can get it

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has confirmed that it paid suspected pedophile priests to leave the ministry.
Twenty grand.

Then the RCC made Tim Dolan a cardinal. Nowadays he's on Fox News complaining about "Obamacare" trying to force a condom on him.

Ugh, the visuals. Jesus, save me from your followers, as they say.

Reading up on laicization, I see maybe the money was for a new wardrobe. "Laicized clerics are forbidden to wear clerical dress or to perform ceremonies or to administer the sacraments ordinary to their former offices." Or maybe it was for condoms. "Priests who are laicized are required to continue practicing celibacy, although dispensations from this discipline are frequently given." And I was surprised to see "A laicized priest has the power to confect the Eucharist." So you get to keep some of the superfriend superpowers, but not all.
