My good friend Thomas Richards is at it again! I have recently learned that he has labeled me on his website as a “Jesuit Coadjutor”. If you’d like to see for yourself have a glance down the lists on the left hand side of this page.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary lists two definitions of this word:
1) One who works together with another: assistant
2) A bishop assisting a diocesan bishop and often having the right of succession
The word comes from the Middle English coadjutour. And before that from the Anglo-French which in turn is from Late Latin coadjutor (Latin co- + adjutor helper, from adjuvare to help).
So obviously, since Thomas Richards says it this must be true! The simple fact that this guy would write such a thing has me baffled, but again, it proves my point. These conspiracy theory folks, the people who actually listen to the likes of Alberto Rivera and his fraudulent ilk, will themselves say and believe anything.
Both I and an acquaintance of mine have contacted Thomas Richards about these asinine statements he is making regarding me and my book yet the poor devil doesn’t see fit to respond – only to claim that I work together with Jesuits, which couldn’t be further from the truth, or that I am even a bishop who is assisting a diocesan bishop – depending upon which definition Thomas meant to apply to the accusation.
He might as well call me the anti-Christ. There would be just about as much validity to that statement as to Thomas Richards claiming I am any sort of Jesuit coadjutor.
Sorry, Thomas Richards! The more I see of you the more I get the feeling that you were educated far beyond your intelligence but unfortunately not highly educated as well. Such a shame, your efforts could have been better served with a little more honesty.
