The Washington Post:
The chief administrator of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference resigned after a Catholic media site told the conference it had access to cell phone data that appeared to show he was a regular user of Grindr, the queer dating app, and frequented gay bars. […]
Monsignor Jeffrey Burrill has been Secretary General of the USCCB since last fall, a position that coordinates all administrative work and planning for the conference, the nation’s network of Catholic bishops. As a priest he gives up celibacy. Catholic teaching is against sexual activity outside of heterosexual marriage.
When the U.S. Bishops’ Conference rings, it’s likely because:
Disregarding a warning from the Vatican, the Roman Catholic bishops of the United States have voted overwhelmingly in favor of draft guidelines on the Sacrament of the Eucharist and pushed forward a push by Conservative bishops to deny President Biden Communion for his support for abortion law.
The decision, published on Friday afternoon, is aimed at the nation’s second Catholic President, perhaps the perhaps Most religiously loyal commander in chief since Jimmy Carter and exposes bitter divisions in American Catholicism. It crowned three days of controversial debate at a June virtual session of the United States Catholic Bishops’ Conference. The measure was approved with 73 percent for and 24 percent against.
In fact, none other than Monsignor Burrill himself announced the vote count, which is about puh-pooing our President.
More from the post:
The resignation took place due to the reporting in the pillar, an online newsletter reporting on the Catholic Church. On Tuesday afternoon after Burrill’s resignation became known, the column reported that it had received information based on the based on the information that Grindr collects from its users and has hired an independent company to authenticate it.
According to The Pillar, “a mobile device correlated with Burrill was sending app data signals from the location-based hookup app Grindr almost daily for portions of 2018, 2019 and 2020 – both in its USCCB office and in its USCCB possession.” Place of residence and at USCCB meetings and events in other cities. The data received and analyzed by The Pillar transmits mobile app date signals over two 26-week periods, the first in 2018 and the second in 2019 and 2020. The data was obtained from a data provider and authenticated by an independent data consultancy from The Pillar. “
Okay, so I’ve had something to do with the Roman Catholic Church since they assigned an abusive priest to our congregation when I was in elementary school. He was offended before he got to our community so I can only assume they did it on purpose. All of this came out years later, of course.
With all the masturbators in a state of mortal sin, I imagine I should have several Costco-sized pallets full of Jergens Lotion FedEx’d to hell before I shovel off that mortal coil. I expect there will be many buyers and my forward thinking will certainly make me the Duke of Hades. And I bet I can hollow out Burrill at the Underworld bookstore after Satan disables all of his apps and leaves him with nothing but dog-eared copies of 1950s men’s fitness magazines.
In the meantime, I’ll be eating sweet, sweet glee as this story unfolds. Stay tuned.
