News of Burrill's resignation , reported earlier by National Catholic Reporter, came after online Catholic news site The Pillar reported allegations of his behavior to the conference. On Tuesday, after Burrill's resignation was announced, Pillar reported that it had obtained device location data from a data vendor that was allegedly collected through Grindr.

The site explains to have obtained "commercially available data". Translation: These are data sold, sometimes by American telephone operators, to "Data Brokers", merchants who exploit this juicy business, often for advertising purposes.

While safety researchers have been alarmon since years on the dangers of selling these GPS data, The Catholic Reporter has denounced "lack of ethics and homophobic implieds" of The Pillar's investigation. The editor of the site, JD Flynn, defended Wednesday the publication of the article, even if Jeffrey Burill did not seem to violate the American legislation. Unveiling the private information about Monseigneur Burill was "of the general interest," he supported.
