Disgraced Archbishop Turns Author: Rembert Weakland to Release Book on Gay Lifestyle

180px-Mitra_simplex_Gamarelli_2008-28-07The former head of the Milwaukee archdiocese, Archbishop Rembert Weakland, 82, is about to publish a memoir on his gay lifestyle as a Catholic priest and sexual scandal. “A Pilgrim in a Pilgrim Church: Memoirs of a Catholic Archbishop” will be released in June.


Weakland resigned in 2002 after it was revealed that the church paid Paul Marcoux, a former Marquette University theology student,$450,000 to settle a sexual assault involving the archbishop. Weakland insisted that there was no assault.

Weakland was also criticized for his admitted decision to return abusive priests back to their parishes.

Weakland, a Benedictine monk, served in Rome as leader of the International Benedictine Confederation. He was a hero of the Catholic left and worked on a liturgy commission for the Second Vatican Council.

It appears that Catholic priests are moving heavily into the sexual lifestyle aisle of bookstores. Father Ksawery Knotz has published a book entitled “Sex As You Don’t Know It: For Married Couples Who Love God.” The book, published with the support of the Polish church, promised instruction on sex that is “saucy, surprising and fantasy packed.” Father Knotz notes that “Some people [think married sex] has to be sad like a traditional church hymn.” Hopefully, this is purely theoretical work by the author as opposed to Archbishop Weakland’s work in the area.

  1. I see Patty’s Paranoid, no one attacks her until she does her indignant righteousness flopping. Attacking most without provocation. Blaming men for her lack of self esteem and own flatulence. Blaming others for being on the Blawg as the source of her discomfort and it was a fine list until, so and so came on here and then it is about some imagined or perceived assault against her or or profession or education or her garden or her dog or her. . . the list could go on an on. . . .

    It is not about her and a substantial time has been taken away from other issues just because Jill Posts or FF LEO asks her to quite down and she trys and shut him down.

    If she has as much education as she claims she would be smarter than this and not even be on here. She would be way, way too good for us.

  2. I was fixin’ to write something about this guy not mentioning the Law and then at the last few seconds he did.

    I do think a J.D. is much less than a full minute. Now, throw in a Ph.D. and you can almost make a full 52 seconds…

    Hey just kidding, ’cause I have an important legal question over on the Report: Cheney Called for…thread and I know just enough law that thou shalt not disparage lawyers, at least not too badly.

    the sad thing is that most people go to the “5 min” university even though they went to a 4 year school. I dont know how many times I heard people say I am not reading another book when I am finished, I doubt they even read one while attending.

    I tell my son learning is like mining for gold, you have to mine a lot of ore to get an ounce of gold.

  4. I don’t doubt this sad example of an Archbishop will write how his life was almost Godly & ideal except for all the homosexual haters that made his life miserable when maybe the reason he was miserable was the way he was living.

  5. Mespo…
    He needs to hook up with the Church Lady. They need to do a skit together. That would be a fun one

  6. With all this sexual liberation in the Church are we seeing the resurgence and prescience of Fr. Guido Sarducci?
