Pontifigate: A Future for Polanski?

MoDowd kills it in today’s New York Times regarding the “sex abuse crisis”/”grave sin” of ordaining—gasp!—womyn. She notes “If Roman Polanski were a priest, he’d still be working here.” I’d venture to guess that, were the pervy little man becollared he would A) Have a very special middle name (can you guess it? It comes with a pretty red hat called a zucchetto which would look ever so nice on his flowing gray locks), B) Shepherd the flock of Paris where he would make the Ecole Julie Postel (for ‘troubled’ teenagers) a very special part of his ministry, and C) Be on the fast track to sainthood due to his dramatic conversion from Hollywood filmmaker to Man of God.
