Via CNN:
Father Alberto Cutie, an internationally known Catholic priest who admitted having a romantic affair and breaking his vow of celibacy, is joining the Episcopal Church to be with the woman he loves.

Cutie (pronounced koo-tee-AY) will pursue the priesthood in the Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Diocese of Southeast Florida said in a written statement.

It was not immediately clear how long the process would take.

This strikes me as an odd move unless his disagreements with Rome are more than merely disciplinary. It's pretty widely acknowledged that TEC is doctrinally about as not Catholic as you can get. Still if he is one of those cafeteria Catholics we read about then I salute him for his honesty. Would that more of the cafeteria crowd would do the same thing.

If only they all would join that coven, the equivalent of an adulteress who steals another woman's husband. His speed-of-light depatrure shows he never really believed the Church anyway.
