Byzantine Catholic priest expelled to Wisconsin

WOODLAND PARK, N.J. -  A Byzantine Catholic priest who was expelled following claims that he sexually abused boys in New Jersey is living in Wisconsin.

The Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Passaic notified parishioners that 49-year-old Glenn Davidowich received and accepted notice removing him "from the clerical state" effective April 2.

He had been on leave since 2011, when the eparchy reached a $200,000 settlement with a 36-year-old Hopewell man who claimed he was abused.

Attorney Mitchell Garabedian told The Star-Ledger of Newark the eparchy settled a second lawsuit in June.

Property records show he lives in Manitowoc, Wis., with his partner in that venture.

First point) Banishment to Wisconsin is clearly a step up in the world from New Jersey.
Second point) If only priests were able to marry..... oh wait, Byzantine priests are allowed to be married.
