I had written in the past about Father Joseph Palacios of Georgetown University, a self-described "gay priest" who co-founded "Catholics for Equality". Comes now the happy news (thanks to Cardinal Newman Society) that Palacios has been relieved of his priestly faculties by his bishop, Jose Gomez of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Of course what would be more joyous would be the news of Palacios' repentance of his gay advocacy and dissidence in general. In the meantime, we thank and salute Archbishop Gomez.
It's not what the Pope says, it is what he does.
