Bishop Dick


In today's Scene, First Punch reports that Cleveland Bishop Richard Lennon is a complete dick. Or at least, he was when he was still working in Boston, where he was caught on tape being an utter bastard to filmmaker Joe Cultrera, whose brother had been molested by a pervy Massachusetts priest. You can watch Cultrera's documentary, Hand of God, here. It's broken into chapters. Lennon's cameo comes about five minutes into the film's 10th chapter, "Balancing Faith Against Outrage." (See the movie trailer above.) Word to the wise: Have bucket handy, especially if you're Catholic. — Joe P. Tone
