DIRTY PRIESTS

Pope Francis ordered an investigation in October of the Italian Riviera diocese of Bishop Mario Oliveri, 70, known for giving “second chances” to wayward priests from across the country. Reports had surfaced that, among Mario’s priests was one who openly published nude selfies on Facebook, another caught publicly flirting with the wife of a port captain, another dismissed from a cruise ship for molesting passengers, and another revealed to have a full-body “tribal” tattoo he exhibited, posing with the tattoo artist in the local newspaper. The manager of a diocese church charity estimated about half of the bishop’s 175 priests were delinquents.
