Deputy Rector of US Seminary in Rome Steps Down Amid Accusations Of Homosexuality

Father Adam Park, the Vice Rector of the Pontifical North American College (NAC), the US seminary in Rome, is stepping down.

His resignation comes after multiple allegations of homosexual harassment and misconduct toward seminarians under his authority.

Park was ordained a priest for Washington Archdiocese by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and later served as the secretary to disgraced Cardinal Donald Wuerl.

He relinquished his post after Monsignor Jeffrey Burrill, another highly-placed U.S. cleric who served at the NAC, resigned as General Secretary of the US Bishops' Conference amid reports of alleged serial homosexual misconduct.

Father Gerald Fitzgerald (+1969), who ran a treatment center for homosexual priests in New Mexico, stated that when he was ordained 43 years ago, homosexuality was an unknown rarity but that 1964 "it is rampant among priests".

Biting my metaphoric tongue bloody to resist pointing out how the man truly lives up to the title "Vice Rector".

It is probably a decision he backed into.

Nicely done, @Dr Bobus :D ...a decision that became... addictive and made him a... dictator at the (wait for it)...seminary. Up next, more cattiness about what filling Father Park liked in his Egg Foo Young and what kind of gravy he put on them.

Filling and gravy are serious business with Egg Foo Young, even for those who aren't seminary rectors. :D

The chicken has to be properly tend…More

The chicken has to be properly tenderized before it's gently shaped into a firm, moist patty. If not, the chicken releases its water in the hot oil causing nasty spatters far worse than the ones Father Park has been washing out of his clothing for some time now.. ;-)

Egg Foo Young gravy is an art. I can make it the way modern restaurants do but I still haven't mastered the way the "old-school" Cantonese restaurant cooks made it.
