The Flying Buttress: What Inquisitors' Minds Want to Know

An archive for issues of The Flying Buttress newswire, whose purpose is to comment satirically on dissent within and relating to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

+WCPO-TV’s “I-Team” has broadcast a story about Alex Henties, the person hired by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati to conduct criminal background checks for all Catholic church and school volunteers.

+As it turns out, Mr. Henties not only has a criminal background, but a current criminal record and a suspicious relationship with his supervisor, Personnel Director Vincent Frasher.

+You may read this sorry tale here. We advise our readers to double-check the facts of this story before reaching any conclusions. Relevant questions may include:

  • Is Vincent Frasher a homosexual?
  • Does he have a homosexual relationship, past or current, with Alex Henties?
  • Was this relationship the basis for both Mr. Henties’ employment and the dismissal of his criminal record which continued even after he was employed?
  • Has Archbishop Pilarczyk surrounded himself with homosexual employees, including priests and religious? If so, why?
  • How many reputations and identities have been compromised or placed at risk by Mr. Henties and Mr. Frasher?
  • Why does this Archdiocese lead a double life, supposedly shepherding the faithful with its public face, yet allegedly engaging in sordid criminal and immoral activities in private?
  • What does the Hamilton County Prosecutor have to say?

+We would be happy to publish any accurate information from our readers about this breach of trust.
