Who says Catholic priests have a predilection for prepubescent boys?
Certainly not Father Kevin J. Gray, late of the Sacred Heart Parish in Waterbury, Connecticut.
According to this story in the Washington Post, Father Gray prefers boys old enough to require tuition payments, expensive wardrobes and rent checks in return for sexual favors. $1.3 million worth over the course of seven years. Allegedly.
Waterbury police have charged Gray with first-degree larceny. Arraignment was expected Tuesday in Waterbury Superior Court.
Gray, 64, used the money to stay at such hotels as the Waldorf-Astoria and on expensive clothing labels including Armani suits and Brooks Brothers, said Capt. Christopher Corbett. He also paid the college tuition and rent of two men he had met, Corbett said.
Sadly, the money the good Father was paying these rent-boys was coming right out of the collection plate. Not exactly doing the Lord’s work there, eh Father?
As I’ve said before, I have nothing against homosexuals, homosexual prostitutes or their clients. The thing that gets Uncle Frankie’s panties in a bunch is people who make a living telling the rest of how to live, not keeping their actions aligned with their words.
If you’re a Catholic who is offended by this posting – good for you! You should be offended – not by me but by Father Gray and every other supposed celibate who is living a double life while taking your confessions and contributions.
It would have been nice if God had made men without that extra ingredient of testosterone, but He didn’t. And acting like tens of thousands of grown men can go through their entire lives denying their sexuality isn’t just dogma, it’s idiocy.
