Corapi's announcement sounds and reads like a disgruntled employee's desperate attempt to defend his work history, defame and blame his management for his failings, and reinvent himself by the launch of a new business. I find it ironic that the unidentified female former employee who initiated the 'morals' investigation was referred to as a disgruntled employee by Corapi's media company, and as Corapi lamented, she's the 'one for whom I did so much'.
I've received a few emails asking what I think of Corapi's statement. I haven't ever changed my mind about him since the accusations first surfaced. His recent announcement and public reaction have been fairly predictable. In my opinion, the announced continuation of the 'business' under a new name is typical SOP by for-profit evangelists. Unfortunately, when the money comes in, the Spirit goes out.
I'm just responding to Corapi's announcement here, his statement and my reaction means nothing - both are simply personal opinions. Instead I will wait to hear what the Bishop has to say on Corapi's status as a priest, and possibly what his religious superiors have to say regarding the investigation. Then there is something to discuss.
