Berger's Beat

It’s “out of the frying pan, into the fire” for Archbishop Robert Carlson. While the Fr. Joe Ross case is behind him. a Lincoln County civil trail against Fr. Joseph Jiang is moving forward. “Carlson’s fingerprints are all over the Jiang case,” said SNAP’s David Clohessy. (KSDK’s Art Hollday asked the $64,000 question about the Ross settlement. Why would Carlson pay a settlement to a woman he claims isn’t telling the truth?) Meanwhile, another priest from Missouri, Fr. Bob Marsicek, has been accused of abuse in Wisconsin and California.

BTW: Clohessy and Barbara Blaine (a SLU alum) received a Global Women’s Rights Award from the Feminist Majority Foundation at a Hollywood gala hosted by Jay and Mavis Leno. Some past winners: Gloria Steinem and Mariska Hargitay of “Law & Order.”
