What does "condemning the asshole" actually mean? I have no doubt that a great many people, Christians and non-Christians, laity and clergy, have expressed themselves in the strongest term about the pathetic oaf.

It sound as if Greg is envisaging some kind of fatwa, or a formal repudiation, like a defrocking or excommunication, and is indignant that this hasn't taken place - but that sort of thing could only apply if the man were a minister within a denomination where that kind of sanction was possible, and he evidently isn't. He's just a vicious nut who has conned a oddball congregation into allowing him into a pulpit.
