Inappropriate?

According to my dictionary, the word means "unsuitable" - but not necessarilly illegal. So why all the fuss about the alleged antics in the Catholic Church and the LibDum Party?

Well in the case of the alleged "antics" of a  (formerly) senior member of a church that condemns homosexual activity, particularly an individual who has been so vocal on the subject (earned the title "bigot of the year" ) , it may seem "inappropriate" for him to try and get jiggy with members of the same sex.

But the question is, was whatever he's alleged to have done, was it illegal ?   The complainants have clearly succeded in their intent, to take him out of voting for a new Pope, which is basically what it's all about.

As far as being illegal , in terms of the law of the land, not just canon law, "Inappropriate contact" is vague but possibilities include common  or  indecent assault. Alternatively, threatening behaviour or good old conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace *. The timing of this does appear interesting , not just because of the forthcoming vote but also coming so soon after he made remarks about removing the need for priests to be celibate.

 

 

* not to be confused with bleach of the priest (dying a vicars hair blond)

If the offence was so traumatic. why didn't these bleaters, bleat at the time?   Years ago, an overly tactile move would receive a cold shoulder or a slap, but now we appear to be descending to the depths of trivia, in order to pull folk down, aided and abetted by a media that seems confused between news and gossip.

 The inappropriate behaviour could have been dealt with 'in house' and not bored the pants of most of us who don't give a monkeys.

 

It depends on what it consisted of - there are too may examples of actual criminal behaviour being dealt with in-house, where dealt with means sweeping it under the carpet. Not just the church but many other organisations - including the NHS . If a patient was to drag a nurse by her hair I suspect they wouldn't have to wait too long to have their collar felt (and quite rightly too).

 It am led to believe that the behaviour involved adult males, some of whom have only now decided it was inappropriate.  There is definitely nothing criminal involved.

If you've found it Lt Kije, why don't you post it. The only links I can find regarding the Cardinal and Cameron are the Cardinal criticising Cameron but no pictures. Apparently he isn't as friendly towards Cameron as he was towards Brown. And this guy:
