Jesuit Priest Convicted of Molestation: 'I will always be a priest'

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Defiant molester: 'I will always be a priest'
RELIGION | Fights Chicago Jesuits' efforts to expel him
November 15, 2007

The Rev. Donald J. McGuire, convicted of molesting two boys, said Wednesday that he's fighting an effort by Chicago's Jesuits to expel him from their religious order.

"They can't abandon me," a defiant McGuire told the Chicago Sun-Times in a rare interview...

The Chicago Jesuits have presented McGuire with a dismissal decree from the order, which still needs Vatican approval to become official. McGuire said he has appealed to the Vatican not to allow the dismissal.

"I will always be a priest," McGuire insisted to the Sun-Times. "They can't take that away..."
