Anonymous May 14, 2014 at 8:21 AM had some questions for me. As usual, I gladly answer:
Is there any evidence that "they had been monitoring Fr. Paul for two years"? Why do you say this? Who claimed this and where? Even if the person was harmless, his name appeared in the national registry. This cannot be denied. Do you deny it?
- That the man had been allowed to volunteer "in an official capacity" at the parish after his employment was terminated in 2011.
- That the man had purchased "on numerous occasions...items under several Santa Barbara Church charge accounts at certain businesses."
- That the man had once stayed at the same hotel at which a retreat for a Santa Barbara Confirmation Class retreat was held.
