E-mails from Rev. Ryan Erickson, the Hurley, Wis. Catholic priest who committed suicide last month after being questioned in the investigation of a still-unsolved 2002 double homicide in Hudson, Wis., illustrate the dissension that is not uncommon in many parishes and dioceses.

The e-mails were provided to me by Darla Meyers, a friend and supporter of Erickson. They were sent in 2002, when Erickson was associate pastor of St. Patrick Church in Hudson.
