Father Dale excommunicated

My nearly year old post about Father Dale Fushek remains one of the most read posts from this site. He is clearly a polarizing figure.

Now, the news has been announced that he has been excommunicated from the Catholic Church. Bear in mind, this is the same guy who organized bringing the Pope to Arizona and introduced Life Teen. His trial is still pending, and while he has not been able to participate in Catholic Services, he has been leading worship through the "Praise and Worship Center" which has been attracting hundreds to their services.

While its still unclear what his underlying motives are, this excommunication has raised the stakes for Fushek. Now, it is known that even if he is found innocent, he will not be able to go back to the life he once knew. And if he is found guilty, how will that impact those people who attend the Praise and Worship center?
