On the bright side, the loss of his priest job means he can devote himself full time to Grindr!
[quote] The Pillar correlated a unique mobile device to Burrill when it was used consistently from 2018 until at least 2020 from the USCCB staff residence and headquarters, from meetings at which Burrill was in attendance, and was also used on numerous occasions at Burrill’s family lake house, near the residences of Burrill’s family members, and at a Wisconsin apartment in Burrill’s hometown, at which Burrill himself has been listed as a resident.

“A mobile device correlated to Burrill emitted app data signals from the location-based hookup app Grindr on a near-daily basis during parts of 2018, 2019, and 2020 — at both his USCCB office and his USCCB-owned residence, as well as during USCCB meetings and events in other cities,” the Pillar reported.
I'm sure he'll say he was just "browsing."

Hypocrites go to the worst part of hell. What a gross, disgusting person, who couldn't behave himself for 70 years or so before claiming a godly reward of eternal life with his savior. Now he will probably burn in eternal fire because he chose to use a lewd app to fantasize over dick pics....or worse!

There was a priest in Illinois who called the police one night.
He had on some kind of B and D gear complete with a mouth harness, leather belts and what not, and had locked himself into his own handcuffs.
The police (dying of laughter) had to release him. Then he went for "counseling," but I doubt he returned to ministry.
No one cares if the Monsignor went cruising. There's been so much more scandalous stuff done.

He'll probably be quietly reinstated, but relocated to another country. The Catholic church is a global business. Then 5 years later, he'll probably be moved back and given a low-key job.

His workplace didn't track him. The Pillar found his data for sale from a "data broker." It sounds like an enemy of his in the USCCB tipped off The Pillar that he was on Grindr, and then The Pillar went out and bought Grindr data from some shady source and found and tracked his IP address. Then according to The Pillar, once they had proof of his internet activity, they approached the USCCB and gave it a few days to figure out a response before they went public. I'm not exactly sure what The Pillar is but it seems like a sleazy tabloid for the Church. It's probably used by vicious, ambitious priests to smear each other.

This is actually a much bigger story buried inside another Church Scandal story
The data they collected on him is supposed to be secure in that it can't be tracked back to any individual person because it is stripped of things like names and addresses and anything obvious.
But privacy advocated have long argued that it's not that hard to draw connections-- that if the data comes from, say, an unmarried 50 year old man living in a certain zipcode who works as a clergyman, that there's only one person who would fit that description and its easy to figure out who it is.
That seems to be what happened here.
So the story is getting play in the tech world outside of its gay priest angle.

Uh - Google Timeline will show you exactly where you've gone in the past year. It doesn't say they got this from the app - however, if the app is on his phone and he has auto login, they could easily access more data.
So the Catholic Church is now SPYING on their own clergy?
At the same time, this idiot using his work phone. Talk about stupid.

I don't believe the data purchase story. I think some other person (probably straight on church committee who didn't like him) downloaded Grindr and turned it on when they attended a meeting to see who was nearby. That person, probably favorited all of the close profiles and then tracked their location in the coming days/months. They probably drove by this guy's home and sat outside to see how many feet away he was, and then saw that he was in Vegas at the bathhouse.

JD (James Daniel) Flynn of Denver is the one who outed the priest. Maybe we should find some things out about JD.
Also....he hates Democrats: On Monday, April 8 2013 the Denver Democratic Party was informed that the Archdiocese of Denver would not be honoring its contract and that House District 8 would have to find another location for its annual Spaghetti Dinner; which was scheduled for the following Saturday, April 13, 2013. We were told by the Archdiocese’s newest chancellor, James Daniel “JD” Flynn, that although the church had accommodated House District 8 for the past 4 years; that the church would no longer allow the Denver Dems to rent the space. While Flynn claimed the reason was related to the Archdiocese’s tax exempt status, in further discussion he stated that Democratic party fundraisers were “harmful to people”.

Did anyone here read the article? It basically says that Grindr is a way for gay men to have sex with underage boys. They then make the argument that this priest was probably having sex with underage boys for this reason. Don’t get excited about salacious stories like this because it’s the conservative Catholic media’s way of calling us pedophiles.

The Washington Post published an in depth story about the case today that's pretty interesting. I love the way it ends with a quote from one of the "journalists" who bought the data:
[quote] Toward the end of Friday’s podcast, Flynn and Condon bemoaned the public debate about their recent work.
[quote] “I hate being the center of attention like this,” Flynn said.
Something tells me that scandal will befall Flynn and Condon in the not too distant future.

I think I’m the only one who attended a Catholic Church that had a straight priest. He left it to marry a woman and became a Protestant minister. A number of years back, a number of the priests at several of the churches in the diocese tried picking me up. Another young priest used to like to walk around nude in the locker room at the local gym to show off his body and nice clock. Didn’t think women should have a role in the church. Very misogynistic. Always wondered if he has a regular fuck buddy.

I have downloaded Grindr and checked it out and deleted it. I never intended to meet anyone, but if someone got ahold of my data, would it be assumed I was hooking up?

R72 Illegal? No, and he suffered no "legal" repercussions at all. The Church (where he was a senior officer, from which he received a livelihood) demanded as "terms of employment", as it were, that he take a vow of celibacy, as well as honor the "rules" against homosexuality. So was what he did "wrong"? Of course not. Was it in contradiction to what he committed to his employer as a part of his vocation? Yes. Should the Church come into the 21st century? Yes. Should the Church care more about the millions of poor on the earth who are starving? Yes.
WWJD? Very little of what the Church does....
