That's what we figure a few highly-placed figures in the New York Archdiocese are thinking. Eugene Clark, rector of St. Patrick's Cathedral, stepped down August 11, amid rumors that he was, err, intimate with his secretary. Who is female.
Mind you, the relief that those same figures may feel over the secretary's femaleness may be attenuated somewhat by the fact that she is in the middle of a sloppy divorce. On one hand, the fact that her angry husband is the main accuser makes the whole story a little suspicious. On the other hand . . . divorce. Eek. Isn't Caesar's wife -- or his secretary -- supposed to be above suspicion?
In any case, the GLBT press in particular is gloating -- labeling him "Creep of the Week." Seems Msgr. Clark has been pretty strident in his remarks on sex. In 2002 he blamed Roman Catholicism's recent scandals on "the campaign of liberal America against celibacy." Umm... yeah.
