From the comments:
The showboatin’ priest is Fr. Tony Ricard, pastor of Our Lady Star of the Sea parish in New Orleans. These kinds of stunts are standard fare for him. Archbishop Greg Aymond enjoys his popularity, earned largely by pandering to the vanity and worldly preoccupations of his flock. He’s not the sort of ordinary who would put a stop to these antics.
The number one problem in the Church today is that too many clergy and laity fail to give any evidence of actually believing the teachings of Christ and thus engage in this type of tripe to paper over the spiritual void that is eating the heart out of the Church. God forgive them and God forgive us for putting up with it.
