I feel I should stick my head out in defence of Fr. Tim Finigan against the cheap shot made against him by Elena Curti of the Tablet (a.k.a. the bitter pill). Here is the infamous article in full with his comments. At least she could have given a more measured and balanced account of his pastoral efforts supported by hard facts rather than conjecture. She seems to go to the verge of accusing him of financial irregularity over his dress!
