I found myself amused by Father Alex Santora’s letter personally attacking me in the June 9 issue of the Hoboken Reporter. It was a clever response to my letter the previous week.
Nonetheless, I might point out that Father Santora does not deny his role in single-handedly shutting down a fully-funded effort to use Our Lady of Grace’s largely abandoned convent as a residence for single, pregnant women as a way of encouraging these women to consider an alternative to having an abortion. Apparently, Father Santora feels that such actions by a Roman Catholic priest – acting in his capacity as pastor of a parish – merit no explanation. Ditto his decision to personally attack a political figure also while acting in his official capacity as pastor of a religious congregation.
We live in interesting times.
