To us anytime anywhere This is all painful for us us If I tell you, but my life. In. The, Catholic church it was magnificent, man I I was telling, my. Son we're driving through north park man we used to go to these and I've never been. Around. And priests were anything but magnificent. Seriously I've never seen anything suspicious ever And those priests they. Put us on a bus yellow school bus in anyone out, there has been. An. Ultra, boy and we used to, have the altar boy picnic, they. Would get this huge grow which had a house on it in essence in in north park. In. Man they have burgers and dogs In one year it rained so hard there. Was a fifty inches of rain and we ran in the rain. And sat, in the gutters with the water, rushing up our backs and Coast. Us in sports father? Bill housing was a huge figure in my life I got arrested for stealing cars I've never. Forget this I was young fifteen I think my mother, was flabbergasted why wouldn't she be she thought she ruined my life and ruined her life and. Blamed herself for my derelict behavior she had nothing to do with it. As a derelict but, regardless I can. Still see it as if it was. Yesterday have sitting on the steps there's a gym in shady side. Right beside a Sacred Heart elementary. School in the. High school there's a Jim they're sitting, on the steps I was I was. President of the CYO at the. Time and father Bill he took care of us men he was. King he had a. House in seven springs and he would, take us whitewater rafting you talked to a second adult he took kids off, the streets who were derelict's And then we. Sat in those steps, and he talked. To me like a man and told. Me you need your parents you need to do the right thing. You can't be a criminal priest. Wasn't brow beating. Me he wasn't talking about Satan and, father Bill he was my man we. Were tight till the end even. When he was excommunicated I went to his church So there's greatness there so what does does it takes all that in the ditch is it, because they don't they refuse to take. All the bad and get rid of it on Sunday. And Monday were cleaning the slate I don't. Care if there's three. Priests left they're good priests in everybody else goes to jail.
