GoFundMe douses pitch for flag-burning priest Paul Kalchik — so Church Militant turns to FundingMorality.com

With great success, as noted in an earlier Blithe Spirit post.

But take heed of this, from earlier (extensive) Sun-Times reporting on this matter:

The archdiocese noted “this decision [to remove Fr. Kalchik as pastor] has been in motion for some time and is not directly due to the flag-burning.”

Leaving it up to Catholics and other Americans to noodle about what’s been in motion for some time. Mysterious.

In my memory bank I found this remarkably similar to what the archdiocese said about banishing Fr. C. Frank Phillips some months ago after earlier removing him as pastor of St. John Cantius parish, as reported by Chi Trib:

Although Phillips was not found [by an independent panel] to have violated any church or secular law, archdiocese spokeswoman Paula Waters said there was other information that warranted his removal and a continued ban on his administering sacraments in public within the archdiocese. Waters declined to detail the findings against Phillips.

Left for Catholics et al. to noodle yet again. Pattern here.
