The Catholic Bishop of Arundel and Brighton has resigned, saying he has brought "shame" on the diocese. The Rt Rev Kieran Conry, whose diocese covers Sussex and Surrey, said he had been "unfaithful" to his promises as a Catholic priest. He said his actions "were not illegal and did not involve minors"... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-29397223
Anyone care to (wildly!) speculate as to what he's done? I think he has been seeing other religions on the side...;o)

I misread the last line of the quote and read mirrors instead of minors!;)

I get the feeling that there is a little more to this story - ie good old politics : ) Hopefully he will get a good pension and carry on disgracefully LOL He would probably got away with it if it involved choir boys and not a married lady !

At least it shows he is human. Adultery is one of the the least important "crimes" committed by members of the Catholic church.
