Flores, 40, was a priest in the Chicago suburb of Joliet who no longer has any “sort of public ministry” according to a Chicago Catholic archdiocese spokesman.  The Catholic Church is taking steps to defrock Flores who they now claim should never have been ordained.  Court records indicate the Church held up his ordination so he could receive counseling for viewing pornography on line and after hearing the victim and his brother call Flores “daddy”.

The head of the Senate’s foreign policy body on Sunday called for sanctions against any countries that elect to offer shelter to former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who currently faces charges in the U.S. for leaking classified documents related to the NSA’s potential overreach in collecting information against American citizens.

At least three countries have offered to take Snowden in and grant him the political asylum he has applied for: Venezuela, Bolivia, and Nicaragua. Meet The Press host David Gregory asked Senate Foreign Relations Committee chair Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) what the repercussions should be for those countries if they grant him asylum. “It’s very clear that any country that accepts Snowden, offers him political asylum, is taking a step against the United States,” Menendez replied.

“I think you have to look whether it’s at trade preferences that may exist with these countries, other elements of our policy our aid, our trade.”
