Gay Unitarian to Head Catholic College

Religious Studies chair promoted to dean of St Michael's in Vermont.

Maybe it's just me, but I think his Unitarianism is a much more serious issue than his homosexuality. I mean, he didn't choose to be a homosexual, and it's at least possible (though, I'll grant, not likely) that he's living chastely in accordance with the Church's teachings. (There are many people with same-sex attraction who do just that.)

But a Unitarian! The idea that someone who has freely chosen to reject the divinity of Jesus, the doctrine of the Trinity, and the overwhelming portion of the Creed ought to be running a Catholic educational institution is just bizarre. (And I think it's reasonable to assume he has full knowledge of what the Church teaches, given that he has a divinity degree and has taught at a Catholic school for 16 years.)

Seriously, a Unitarian!
