Re: The Epilogue to the AKA article of July 29, 2018, “The ‘Uncle Teddy’ McCarrick Case.”
Due to a grammatical misreading of my source material which was the Fr. Robert M. Hoatson Civil Action New York Suit of December 13, 2005 (available online HERE), I mistakenly included Bishop Charles J. McDonnell as one of the two bishops involved with Fr. Alfonso de Condorpusa, when in fact Fr. Hoatson referenced only one bishop who was involved with Condorpusa and that was Bishop Paul Bootkowski.
I happily make this public correction to my AKA Catholic article and will include it in my next printing of The Rite of Sodomy. I am in the process of writing a personal apology to retired Bishop McDonnell, aged 90, asking him for forgiveness for any difficulty my grammatical confusion has caused him.
I am especially thankful to the loyal friends of Bishop McDonnell who brought this matter to my attention. They did me a great service and I am very grateful to them for helping me to set the record straight. Thank you.
