A Krummy Weekend for Diocese of Orange
The pedophile time bomb that was Father Gus Krumm finally exploded locally this week, when a lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court alleged that Krumm and another priest molested a student at St. Simon and Jude in Huntington Beach during the early 1990s. All I can say is: about time. In 2004, I wrote about how Krumm kept getting shuffled from diocese to diocese after a stint at the now-shuttered St. Anthony's Seminary in Santa Barbara, a notorious Club Ped* for priests. This is the first local lawsuit filed against Krumm, and probably not the last given Krumm has admitted to his pederastic incliniations. One bright note: the Krumm scandal is one case we can't blame on Diocese of Orange Bishop Tod D. Brown; this all falls on the lap of former bishop Norman McFarland. Heckuva job, Brownie!
