The subject of Monday’s  The Catholic Brand, the Real Gospel , the minister recently let go by a Catholic college after they discovered, they said, that he was both openly homosexual and a minister in a pseudo-Catholic group called the Old Catholic Apostolic Church of America, has, as they say, a past. Today’s Philadelphia Daily News reports that in 1992 he served ten months in federal prison for three counts of felony mail fraud .

It also reports that “The Rev. Kera Hamilton, of Norristown, wrote that St. George ‘has no business teaching theology in a Roman Catholic institution’ and ‘has overstepped his bounds, trampled propriety, and shown an arrogance that is beyond all comprehension’.” This was the article’s closing paragraph, suggesting the newspaper is going off a man one of their writers was trying to turn into a celebrity victim of Catholic oppression and prejudice.
