And how long has the Archbishop known? At least for ten years. The L.A. Archdiocese was forced to cough up this list in 2004:

"Blogs are evil" - Archbishop Apuron

NOTE: The statement from the chancery saying that the Archbishop has removed Wadeson from "active and public ministry" MEANS NOTHING. He was not functioning in "public ministry". He was functioning as a neo-presbyter. And he will continue to function as a neo-presbyter. The neo has their own rules and their own hierarchy. They will circle the wagons around him. BUT, this isn't about Wadeson. This is about Apuron. How about ZERO TOLERANCE for bishops too. It's coming.
