    I am deeply saddened and angered by the conduct of the former Archbishop and it appears that he will, as I expected, not be held accountable for his misconduct in any significant or meaningful way. Shameful.

Both Sutton and Shori knew the night before that she was intoxicated and yet proceeded. Disgusting and shameful, and another reason why I no longer attend the church.
