From a Reader of this Blog:

Well THIS is an issue that certainly isn't restricted to homosexuals. The unfortunate archbishop Marino of Atlanta who was having an affair with a choir director got into all kinds of financial trouble. The woman was getting money from him; there were LOTS of rumors of people in the chancery doing exactly what you're saying gay priests do to gay bishops, too. The last time I heard anything he's still living in "retirement" somewhere in the southwest.

I sort of remember the "blackmail" angle on that case. Archbishop Marino died several years ago. He was working in a convent somewhere in the New York area. Fr. Benedict Groeschel references the case in his new Our Sunday Visitor book "From Scandal to Hope" that will be available in June.
