    Take the typical intervention; i.e.) send him to a 28 day treatment program in NJ, then join “GA”, have the Pope issue a blanket wide apology for all gambling priests, ask parisioners to dig deeper to help repay any “alleged” discrepancies, up the credit limit on the credit cards, and re-assign the “impeccable” Priest to a different parish, where “the books” don’t really matter—preferably close to a casino, so the parish can save on gas money. And, maybe parisioners could open a “retreat house” nearby, so other ganbling priests could also come for help—–ah—–fun.

    Good to see Reality Checker. Missed you!

    Yes, as Lina says, when a comment is posted with a link it goes into a moderation queue. I gather that’s because most spammers use links, so commetns with a url link wait for my OK. I was gone all day today so it took longer than usual.
