    I realize DUI does not necessary mean one is an alcoholic…but Robert Sipe in his book A Secret World says “Over 50 percent of the clergy who are treated for severe alcohol problems have some homosexual concerns”…so perhaps Archbishop-elect Salvatore Cordileone has some homosexual concerns he has not spoke about in public!
