(AP) A Miami priest who left the Catholic Church after photos surfaced of him kissing his girlfriend criticizes church leaders in his new book.
Alberto Cutie- dubbed ``Father Oprah'' by the English-language media for his relationship advice -left the Roman Catholic Church in 2009 to become an Episcopal priest. The 41-year-old later married Ruhama Buni Canellis and the two have a daughter.
Cutie details his secret relationship in his new book, ``A Priest's Struggle with Faith and Love.''
Cutie writes he became disillusioned with ``bishops too concerned with their own images'' during child sex-abuse crises.
He says church leaders secretly accept homosexual and heterosexual relationships among priests but disapproved of his because it became public.
