"I have been hesitant to join the many individuals ridiculing the pastor of the two Catholic churches in Girardville. I believe he has a difficult job and no support from the crowd in Allentown.
When it was brought to my attention, however, that he used the term "whorehouse" in the latest Sunday bulletin in reference to the proper placement for the Girardville Pirate Lady, I feel the pastor has gone too far.
There was no reason to use that term in an otherwise pleasant parish bulletin which featured photos of the newest young first communicants in the town; a bulletin that folks would wish to preserve as a family moment to remember.
Well past time to focus on the destruction of the Catholic churches and Catholic schools in northern Schuylkill county rather than employing a matter that was settled by the state police and Pennsylvania law as a smokescreen. "
