Confessions of an Ex-Priest

Posted on February 23, 2011 at 2:28pm 0 Comments

A friend of mine gave me a box full of "The Sudbury Star"  WEEKEND MAGAZINE from 1970 to 1979.  I came across this article.  I'll just give some of the juicier aspects of it, since it's several pages long.

But deliver us from stupidity.

For you are our only…
