And Catholic priests have been molesting children for years and the Catholic Church has hidden it and swept it under the rug. Which is worse? If Pitino wants to come here and promises to run it clean for the time he is here then get him here.


Using your logic we can also start a major for prostitution. This way Pitino can use student interns instead of more expensive hires.

So are you saying that you are in favor of hiring priests that molested children to work in a parish? I don't think your analogy works here.

John, as you noted, we are a Catholic university, and the administration would likely be more disturbed by the abortion and the extramarital affair(s) than the cheating.

So I guess Tiger Woods coming here to coach the golf team would be a total non-starter.
Phew.

Are you saying because of this he won't be or he shouldn't be ?

My point is that even though what the Catholic Church has done is horrible, Catholics forgive and still go to mass on Sunday and support the church and understand that people are human and that no one is perfect and that people make mistakes and use poor judgment, even priests. That being the case, why should Pitino be ruled out? Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. I have no issue with bringing Pitino here as long he runs it clean while he’s here.

Gene, forgiveness sought is different than denying any wrongdoing and pointing fingers at others. I may have missed Pitino Sr. owning his actions.
I would not accept a priest back into a parish even if he sought forgiveness for molesting children. My best reply to him would be "go away to prison and ask later."
