No, it’s not a new NBC comedy! But, for the last two years, Frank Borzellieri has served as principal at Our Lady Of Mount Carmel, a Bronx Catholic school despite an active career as a White supremacist author, linked to several controversial groups. Despite concerns of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a legal organization that has successfully sued some White supremacist’s for civil rights violations, the Catholic Archdiocese has remained clueless about their choice of principal for a school with a large Black and Hispanic population. Apparently, using a computer for a little Google background check involves technology that this church has not yet embraced. It was only after an angry man was arrested who disrupted a Catholic mass to protest Borzellieri that this church got a clue that something might be seriously wrong with their choice of school principal.
Certainly, the religious school is very bit concerned that Borzellieri’s views are far outside of church teachings. But, with their great track record of terrific background checks that have only allowed numerous sex criminals into church leadership positions, it’s only about to be expected that a few others with outrageous backgrounds like Borzellieri can find their way into positions of authority with the church as well.
The latest embarrassment for the church is so funny that NBC should seriously consider making a weekly comedy about it. I think that WHITE SUPREMACIST CATHOLIC SCHOOL PRINCIPAL has hit written all over it. You think? – Sort of a twisted version of SAVED BY THE BELL, or something?
