Your self-proclaimed supreme moral arbiters

On the subject of lady parts and the things women should have available to them.

In 2002, at the height of the outcry over the sexual abuse of minors by Roman Catholic priests, the Archbishop of New York, Edward M. Egan…offered an apology about the church’s handling of sex-abuse cases in New York and in Bridgeport, Conn., where he was previously posted.

And now this most influential leader of Catholic Bishops has a new special message…PSYCHE!

Now, 10 years later and in retirement, Cardinal Egan has taken back his apology…“I never should have said that,” and added, “I don’t think we did anything wrong.”

Here’s a succinct summary of what happened under Egan’s watch which he now states NEVER happened.

The Bridgeport diocese has paid out nearly $38 million to settle abuse claims over the years involving allegations by more than 60 people who said they had been molested by priests.

In court documents unsealed in 2009, Egan expressed skepticism over sexual abuse allegations and said he found it “marvelous” that so few priests had been accused over the years.

“Marvelous”…wow, that is not the word most people would choose.

And of course

Cardinal Egan said yesterday it “would be truly tragic” if lawmakers pass women’s health care legislation that does not allow church-related employers to refuse to provide insurance coverage for birth control and fertility treatments.

That was 2001…the legislation became law.

And that was…Marvelous!

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
