Writes Mark Shea:
In this updated and expanded version of John Corapi’s life story, entitled “Don’t Look Back”on DVD, you can glean few insights into his life. From his early days, to his ordination as a priest by Pope John Paul II, to his twenty years’ labor for the sake of the Gospel, to his untimely and tragic betrayal and dismissal from the Catholic priesthood, you will learn things not previously known. During the time of his ministry, it is arguable that he was the most effective preacher and teacher the Catholic Church had. Why was he seemingly cast into the gutter almost overnight with no recourse, no hearing, no consideration for the very substantial contribution he made over a twenty year period? A synthesis of his autobiography, “THE BLACK SHEEP DOG…CROSSING THE
RUBICON,” you won’t want to miss hearing the expanded version of his classic “Personal Testimony.”
Um. He was not dismissed. He quit, vamoosed, bailed on his vows, ditched his vocation, defied and smeared his bishop and investigators–in order to stop the investigation of his drugging, whoring, sexting and unfitness to be a priest, as the findings showed. And that lie is all the warning you need that the latest phase of Fr. Corapi’s career is to begin attacking the Church and laying victim as he continues his attempt to rebrand himself as the chaplain to Right Wing Generic American Civil Religion. His whole “I was the greatest Catholic of my time, but was shocked at the corruption and the Powers That Be had to silence me” schtick is taking shape.
I reiterate: the real hero of this whole sham is Bp. Mulvey.
