SF Archbishop Cordileone, Architect Of Prop 8, Arrested For Drunk Driving

Time to put that communion wine on lockdown: Bishop Salvatore Cordileone, recently appointed the Archbishop of San Francisco, was arrested for driving under the influence in San Diego this weekend.

The San Diego Union Tribune reports Cordileone—the Catholic Church’s go-to guy when it was rallying for Proposition 8—was stopped shortly after midnight and booked on a charge of driving under the influence. The 56-year-old clergyman was taken to the county jail, where he later posted bail. There’s been no statement on whether or not the incident will affect his ordination in October.

Hey, it could’ve been worse. He could’ve been ministering to gay and lesbian parishioners.
