    Niraj – Don’t you find it a little ironic that it has been over 6 months since these accusations were made by AOD and not a single legal charge has been made by either the Troy Police or the FBI. I am totally puzzled. This feels a lot like someone wanted to move Fr. Ed aside and created this story to accomplish this task. The AOD has not uttered a word nor have they assigned a new pastor for STM. Something is a foul here and it would be helpful if you were to investigate this story a bit more and not just leave it at what the press and the AOD have turned into a field day.
