St. Pius X Priest Removed From Duty As Police Investigate Allegations

The Rev. Bob Marsicek is suspended as Wauwatosa police investigate allegations against him.

The Rev. Bob Marsicek has been suspended from his duties at St. Pius X Church in Wauwatosa as police investigate an allegation against him, according to Patch's media partner WISN 12 News. 

Marsicek's superior, the  Rev. Joe Rodrigues, told 12 News that the suspension is part of church protocol when there is an investigation. 

Wauwatosa police contacted Marsicek and told him to stay away from  the church's school while they look into the allegation. Rodrigues told 12 News that police have not released many details about the allegation or investigation, but he noted Marsicek has not been arrested and is cooperating with the police.

What I expect is that the Wauwatosa Patch will have an equivalent article explaining that this wonderful man was wrongly accused. No one who knows Father Bob would think for a second that this s true. The fact that he has not been arrested since he was accused on Thursday speaks volumes. There are plenty of priests that have been legitimately accused but many have been wrongly accused as well. Some people think they can make a quick buck and others just want to hurt the church. They picked on the wrong priest this time. St. Pius has never had a more wonderful priest and his parish stands behind him. When it's over he won't have to explain what happened. There are some things that just don't need explanations.

Given the dearth of information released so far, with no more than a vague reference to some allegations being investigated and a suspension of duties during the course of that investigation, I have removed a number of comments that implicitly alleged far more than can in any way be construed about this matter. And with that, I am going to turn off further comments. And yes, gardengirl, Wauwatosa Patch will publish the rest of the facts when they are known and not engage in supposition.
