"A mug is a mug in everything" department

Roger Vangheluwe

Former Bishop Roger Vangheluwe of Bruges, Belgium, who's already been forced to resign his see on account of sexual abuse accusations, some involving his own nephews, is facing  new charges of sexual abuse.  Rorate Caeli notes that in the days before Vangheluwe's sexual abuse problem became public, the now disgraced ex-bishop was a darling of the liberal Catholic press for his strongly pro view regarding the ordination of women.  Though this is very far from establishing (much less implying) a logical connection between sexual abuse and approving the ordination of women, Vangheluwe's case does at least tend to support Col. Harrington's dictum, "a mug is a mug in everything."    Vangheleluwe is something far worse than a mug, but Col. Harrington's point is that a jackass is generally a jackass (or worse) across the board.
