Monsignor Jeffrey Burrill, former general secretary of the U.S. bishops’ conference, announced his resignation Tuesday, after The Pillar found evidence the priest engaged in serial sexual misconduct, while he held a critical oversight role in the Catholic Church’s response to the recent spate of sexual abuse and misconduct scandals.
We note that former Msgr. Burrill is not accused of pedophilia (our graphic above is for illustration purposes only, but you try to google for an image of a sexxxy priest —actually don’t) but Burrill was one of the group that was trying to deny President Handsome Joe Biden communion because of his stance on Choice goes against standard-issue Catholic orthodoxy. And thus we are reminded:
Tengrain’s Definition of Hypocrisy: Hypocrisy is not about failing to live up to your standards. Hypocrisy is teaching/preaching something you clearly don’t actually believe as demonstrated by your actions.
Side note: Grindr says it did NOT allow its data to be used:
In a statement, Grindr called The Pillar’s report an “unethical, homophobic witch hunt” and said it does “not believe” it was the source of the data used. The company said it has policies and systems in place to protect personal data, although it didn’t say when those were implemented. The Pillar said the app data it obtained about Burrill covered parts of 2018, 2019 and 2020.
