The resignation comes after Catholic media site The Pillar found evidences of the priest not just using Grindr but also visited gay bars and private residences “on a near-daily basis during parts of 2018, 2019, and 2020 — at both his USCCB office and his USCCB-owned residence, as well as during USCCB meetings and events in other cities.”

The evidences were based on data “commercially available records of app signal data obtained by The Pillar“ which were associated with Burill‘s mobile device.
