    We are thrilled to have him part of the Episcopal Church now. God bless him and his future wife

    I have personally known--or thought I knew--Albert Cutie for nearly ten years. His actions over the past month--especially those today--prove that he is a hypocrite of the first magnitude. If chucking your faith to go skirt-chasing is his idea of "serving God" the Episcopalians are welcome to him.

    Very sad news indeed. I did not foresee this turn of events in the Alberto Cutie scandal.

    I hope Fr. Cutie continues to serve God. I pray for him and his fiancee.

    This seems to show the depth of his faith, (or lack thereof.) "There is no salvation outside the Church" applies here, because Fr. Cutie is fully aware the Catholic Church was founded by Christ, and yet decided to reject it to follow a man made church. If he does not repent before his death, he loses his salvation! A God fearing Baptist who does not realize the Truth that resides in the Catholic Church, and the fact that it was founded by Christ is in better shape spiritually than Fr. Cutie!

    I really admire Father Albert for his service to God for many years. I believe that he made the right move in joining the Episcopalian Church. I am a member of the Roman Catholic but do not agree with many of the rules such as celibacy. Priests are men. I hope that the future will allow for men serving God to be able to marry.

    Well, at least it's over-- let's pray he made the correct decision-- the rest of us must keep our eyes on Jesus-- after all it's Him we follow not frail mankind.

    Yes, once ordained, a man is always a priest. But the Church has canonical penalties for certain serious transgressions that priests might do. In that case they can be forbidden to exercise their priestly faculties.

    Yes, Fr. Cutie is a priest forever. But, it is because he was ordained by a true succesor of the Apostles- a Catholic Bishop. I do not understand why someone who expoused the Theology of The Body would be willing to leave the only ecclesiastical body that publicly espouses the evil of contraception and the complementarity of the sexes. Fr. Cutie says he is just joining another spiritual family. Yet, this family seems to believe in nothing and everything.

    This path seems to have been a process. In statements, Fr. Cutie acknowledged the length of his challenges with celibacy. Yet, it appears that the "internal forum" took a soft and merciful approach without reminding Fr. Cutie of the Truth of all the Church's teachings. Somewhere he was given bad guidance and told it was okay to leave the Church. It appears that there was little reflection and prayer by Fr. Cutie-his decision was made up way before he got caught. Otherwise, he simply would have asked to be laicized and not joined an ecclesial community that does not have valid orders. I also am concerned because he and his "fiance" seem to be trying to get around the annulment process as she was reported to be divorced. Again, a deception that marriage is not indissoluble which Fr. Cutie bought into.

    However, I will continue to pray for him and know that I need mercy also.

    Father Cutie is human. The Catholic Church cannot judge. Father Cutie will have to deal with his own conscience just like every Christian does. And, pray, as we have all been taught, for forgiveness. God is a forgiving God. He is was honest with himself and with God. Isn't that what God wants? God gives us choices and with prayer and supplication, He will show us what is right. I believe Father Cutie is fully aware of that and sought His God for answers.
