village voice > news > Outing Cardinal Egan by Kristen Lombardi --
This Village Voice article scares me. As part of a sexual abuse lawsuit, Father Bob Hoatson alleges that Cardinal Edward Egan of New York City, Archbishop John Myers of Newark, and Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany are active homosexuals. These allegations may or may not be true. I'm open-minded enough to understand that it could go either way.

I wonder if bishops and priests in the past have been hampered in the past by blackmailers. I know that the CIA has a policy of requiring homosexuals to be out to their friends and family before hiring them for exactly that reason.
