Lector who wrote gay memoir removed from church leadership

BOSTON (AP) - A Roman Catholic church in Boston has removed a man from lay leadership over a book he wrote describing himself as
"a happy porn-writing Sodomite."

Scott Pomfret served eight years at St. Anthony Shrine.

His book, "Since My Last Confession," mocks Cardinal Sean O'Malley and suggests that some local clergy are sexually active.

Pomfret said he was amazed that the friars removed him from
leadership because he interviewed many of them for his book.
