    Archbishop apologizes for $2.2 million home

    Bowing to critics, the Archbishop of Atlanta on Monday apologized for a lapse in judgment that made him proceed with a new, $2.2 million home for himself and said he may sell his Buckhead mansion if clerical bodies within the church recommend he do so.
    Noting that the “world and church have changed,” Archbishop Wilton Gregory said he “failed” parishioners when he didn’t fully consider the implications of his decision to move into the new home, made possible by a bequest from Margaret Mitchell’s nephew. Gregory, the leader of the Archdiocese of Atlanta, made his comments in the Georgia Bulletin, a Catholic newspaper.

    No doubt he will pray to God for guidance and God will tell him to keep the home.

    Why don't archbishops take a pledge of poverty, chastity and obedience too like they make others do?

    They do when they enter priesthood which comes before they become bishops.

    So when they become bishops, archbishops or cardinals the vows are null and void?

    I suspect they start to buy their own bull**** because they get fawned over.
