My wife gets angry parish e-mails from time to time. Believe it or not, there are still people in Connecticut who don't think women should be in authority positions. They'll never admit to that, but when challenged, they tend to overreact. Recently, someone ignored [that is, violated] canon law and, when she pointed this out to him nicely, his response was,
"I don't need to follow procedures in my own parish!"
I can't even explain that one.
