“FATHER” RASI REDUX
Catalyst July/August Issue 2000
In the June Catalyst we urged members to contact the producer of “Larry King Live!” to complain about the selection of Father Richard Rasi on the May 2 show. Father Rasi was critical of King for introducing him as a “gay defrocked priest” and then proceeded to misrepresent Catholic teaching on homosexuality. We reported that there is no person by that name in the Official Catholic Directory (aka the Kenedy Directory).
Once again, our members did their job. William Donohue had several phone conversations with Bobby Grossman, the person who booked Rasi, and each time Grossman acknowledged that he was being inundated with complaints. He never heard of the Kenedy Directory but he said he would fax over Father Rasi’s resume when he got it. We’re still waiting for it.
