The Myth that Norman McFarland was a Financial Genius
|McFarland: About as efficient with money as a poor person who just won the lottery...|
Nice story if it were true. Truth is, McFarland is more culpable than anyone for costing the Orange diocese $100 million in sex-abuse settlements. It was under McFarland's reign that the diocese's practice of hiring high-priced asshole lawyers to badger sex-abuse victims began. It was McFarland who did nothing to prosecute Michael Harris, who alone cost the diocese millions. It was McFarland who allowed other pedophiles to terrorize the pews of county churches, pedophiles who cost Catholics more millions. If McFarland were a politician and a Democrat, the Tea Baggers would categorize him as the epitome of waste.
Instead, he received a nice funeral at Holy Family Cathedral. Heckuva job, Brownie!
