Parents ask San Francisco archdiocese to remove controversial parish priests / National Catholic Reporter

In a packed auditorium at Star of the Sea School in San Francisco on Wednesday (Mar.25), parents told representatives of the archdiocese to remove the parish’s two priests.

“After describing the changes that Fr. Joseph Illo, administrator, has instituted at the school since his arrival and the effects on their children, most of the parents concluded their talks by saying, ‘We respectfully ask that Fr. Illo and Fr. Driscoll be removed from Star of the Sea” …

“About 200 parents and teachers attended the meeting, the majority of them wearing Star of the Sea sweatshirts. Sixteen parents spoke at a dais at the front of the audience that faced the four clergymen. Several started to cry as they spoke.”

    I have become so used to hearing more enlightened views within the Church that it is shocking to hear of such headstrong conservatism. In fact, listening to some of the actions of these priests, one cannot avoid seeing the misogynistic imbalance that has corrupted the Church. Much of the misery in the world today, for both men and women, is a direct result of willful misinterpretation of the Bible and Jesus’ message.
