The Diocese of Palm Beach is responding to a local priest’s claims he has been “frozen out” by the church.
Father John Gallagher claims he was placed on medical leave after blowing the whistle on the behavior of a visiting priest.
He says the church went as far as to change the locks on his parochial home while he was sick in the hospital.
The diocese has released a statement saying Gallagher’s account is “completely inaccurate” and his reassignment was not related to the incident with the visiting priest.
