Father Cutié has decided to join the Episcopal Church, the Miami Herald is reporting.
You might recall the Rev. Alberto Cutié (KOO’-tee-ay) was removed from his Miami Beach church after photos of him kissing and embracing a woman appeared in the pages of a Spanish-language magazine earlier this month.
The popular Miami priest and media personality, who has the nickname “Padre Oprah” for his relationship advice, says he is leaving the Catholic Church and joining the Episcopalians.
The ordeal has again prompted a discussion about celibacy for priests in the Catholic Church.
Also in the news is former Archbishop of Milwaukee Rembert Weakland, who has recently talked about his decades-long struggle with the homosexual desires. More details are coming out in his new memoir, “A Pilgrim in a Pilgrim Church: Memoirs of a Catholic Archbishop.”
