[Bumped] Cross-dressing meth priest liked sex in rectory. Bishop looking forward to public defrocking.

[Sigh.] In his post-priesthood, Wallin, 61, bought an adult specialty and video store in North Haven called Land of Oz that sells sex toys and X-rated DVDs. Investigators believe the shop helped him launder thousands of dollars in weekly profits. -- The Connecticut Post

Your Say

And what is, of course, most notable in both the coverage and response to this debacle is the fact of his corrupted priesthood, as opposed to the apparently less-significant fact of his cross-dressing perverted-homosexual drug-addicted "lifestyle."

Gotta make sure not to bury the lede, y'know.

His secrets are spilling out...Interesting that the reporter noted he attended Broadway musicals with his partner. Even more interesting was the woman who said, "I just feel so bad for him, that he was in this position."
Is nothing sacred? Can we not be angry anymore?

Jewell, This is a step up for priests, at least he wasn't fondling little boys... that we know about.

Well gee, Todd, at least you're beginning to notice that the "pedophilia" of priests has in virtually every case involved only boys, and never girls.

It's almost enough to make a person think that the people who bash the Catholic church might be denying the truth about homosexuality.

Naaahh.....

Father, you're an ex priest, sells some weird toys
Cookin' up speed, gonna deal some meth today
You got spoink on your face; big disgrace
Wearing those panties all over the place

We will, we'll defrock you
We will, we'll defrock you

Father, you're a sick man, vile man
Lyin' about your vows, gonna bring down The Church some day
Your life is debased, you big disgrace
Waving your member all over the place

We will, we'll defrock you (Chant it!)
We will, we'll defrock you

Father, you're an old man, porn man
Pleading with the Lord, gonna send you to the Pit some day
You got sin on your face, you big disgrace
Allmighty gonna send you to infernal place

We will we'll defrock you
We will we'll defrock you

You know, in ProggyLand, this doesn't make him a bad person.

Robby, I bash all forms of organized religion.... Religion is too much like that big government you favor so much. Both religion and government have a strict set of rules that you must obey, these rules take away freedoms. Both religion and government tell you bad things will happen to you if you don't obey the rules. Both religion and government believe they have magical powers to make everything better, both want you to worship them and both expect you to give them your money.

I am confused by your last statement, I thought it was accusing others of being a homo made you a homo? You seem to know more about homosexuality than I ever want to.

Lennie wins the internets today.

Uuuuuh, thank you very much, Jewel

Lennie has left the website!!

...and both expect you to give them your money.

Ah, but only government can compel you to do so. That is the crucial difference. Religion must persuade, but government can legally stick a gun in your face and order you to pay up.

Read the book Goodbye Good Men by Michael Rose for the story of how the gay left corrupted the priesthood, turning seminaries from the service of God and man to the indulgence of every vice.

pst314,

Thanks for the heads-up; this is the view of a friend who is a retired professor of theology/philosphy, who noticed a night-and-day priority shift in the seminaries and universities when he came back from Nam in the late '60s.

Here's an excellent review of Goodbye Good Men:
