Over the past few days, the Archdiocese of Boston has figured prominently in some Vortex episodes of the past few day - mainly by way of example. In the one from today, Michael Voris raises the question of why so many bishops (and their chanceries) are so heedless of the voices of faithful Catholics (us) and seem to evince little concern for the scandal caused by the constant boot-licking they do for prominent people who thumb their noses at God and decency. As you watch the video, you'll note that he refers to a National Catholic Register article about the topic; read that and the comments.
I think Voris may have answered his own question (at least in part) when he posted another Vortex a few days ago. In that one he expounds on some figures released by the Archdiocese of Boston. It does seem that some chancery officials there are living high on the hog and being paid quite handsomely by the Archdiocese (which happens to be in debt). Here's a pay chart and its financial report. I will say this for the Archdiocese of Boston; they published a real financial report, not a "public relations" nonsense that was published by the Archdiocese of Washington a few weeks ago.
Could it be that the chancery fat-cats aren't rebuking the murderous ways of the powerful and elite because they don't want to upset their apple cart and loose their own perks and pleasures? Does money talk that loudly? Those are fair questions that deserve honest answers.
