Police: Pennsylvania priest caught with pantless 15-year-old on college campus
"A Catholic priest in Pennsylvania has been charged with molesting a teenage boy after police said he was found in a car on a college campus with a 15-year-old who was wearing no pants, according to a police criminal complaint filed Friday in Lackawanna County.
Allegedly Paulish told police he was at the campus working on his homily when he met the teen, who he said was in emotional distress, and began counseling him.
According to the affidavit, he later admitted to police that he had arranged the meeting with the teen through the 'casual encounters' section of Craigslist. Paulish told investigators that he had asked the boy three times if he was over the age of 18, the affidavit said."
"In this video, Reverend Paulish's homily is about 'What God has joined.' Not only what that means for the relationship of a married couple, but of God's relationship to the Church, and our relationship to God."

And now we know how creeps classify themselves.
And by "classify" I mean "coming up with fancy names for their creepy sex lives and such."
I prefer my Jewish boys to be Jewish men, R2.
they sent mine back with me...just sayin'
"And now we know how creeps classify themselves"
The kid lied about his age to hook up with grown men on craiglist. How is it creepy to hook up with someone you believe to be of age?
I chuckled at the part where he said he was "counseling" the kid. I guess you need to drop trou to counsel people...
Well there was that anti-gay minister who counseled the boys with handjobs. Or was it blowjobs...
56 year old guy ... "but I asked him three times if he was 18"
Like a 56 year old guy going after an 18 year old is soooooooo much better than a 16 year old.
R6, he was a priest. He owes a higher duty to the public and shouldn't have been in the car with a pantless 25 year old. The fact that the kid was 15 now gives authorities one more thing to charge him with and his parish one more reason to insist that he be defrocked, as it were.
Please. He'll probably be conducting mass somewhere else inside a month. Even under the new pecking order.
R3 beat me to it. I always find it suspect when someone gets more emotional about the mislabeling than actually being disturbed by what happened.
"Like a 56 year old guy going after an 18 year old is soooooooo much better than a 16 year old."
Well, this kid apparently wanted to hook up with older dudes, which is why he was trolling for dick on craiglist (although I bet the priest claimed he was 35 or something like that...)
A 15 year old knows if they want to have sex. I knew by the time I was 12. I wasn't ready. By 15, I was.
'That boy's not right.'
The kid was a kid, why is that somehow excuse for the 56 year old supposedly celibate Priest?
As long as the kid is 18 it's legal, it doesn't matter what the age of the older person is.
Yeah, the Kid was 16.
I started getting picked up by adult men at the age of 15
What are you not getting about the hypocritical and still lying piece of shit priest? This isn't an argument about older guy/younger guy hook ups in general.
Pennsylvania is molestation central. Burn it down!!!!
If the kid told the priest that he was 18, then the priest didn't do anything wrong.
aside from the whole vow of celebacy thingy r22
Most gay men are pedos
R21 has a point. I wonder if this priest was part of the cabal that did away with the District Attorney who was about to bring them all down.
But R23, that's church law and not a state or federal law.
I also enjoy counseling guys without pants.
A psychologist said that many priests, because of their religious beliefs, didn't have sex in their teens. Now they can't relate to adults sexually, only to the time when they should have started having sex, which is why they connect with teens.
R25 that is not true. You don't take advantage of a younger person and most gay people understand that.
That's a possible theory, R29, but it's still illegal and immoral.
Big deal, if he were a she and in Tennessee they could be married.
Pope R23 was speaking [italic]ex cathedra[/italic], R27.
I think it's delicious that his parish continues to keep his videos up, such as the one linked below and the one I linked at R1. Innocent until proven guilty in their eyes, perhaps? Leaving them up leads to lovely comments such as the following:
"you need to remove these videos. a disgrace to the roman catholic church"
"you disgusting piece of trash. your cock should be cut off and shoved down your throat...when you get thrown in jail i hope you are raped and punished. you sick fucker...and you call yourself a man of the cloth. you are scum and abomination to the church"
"You touched on little boy balls. balls. balls. you love balls"
[quote]If the kid told the priest that he was 18, then the priest didn't do anything wrong.
Wrong R22. He broke the law. The kid was a minor, and it doesn't matter a bit if he said he was 18 or 38. He was 15 (not 16) and in the eyes of the law the priest committed statutory rape. A victim's statement about his or her age is irrelevant.
15yo hooks up with a 56yo? How much was the old man paying the kid?
In India this would just be an arranged marriage. Oh wait, two men, nope they'd be stoned to death.
Soon it's only going to be news when if a priest is doing something OTHER than molesting kids.
PRIEST LEADS AREA CHURCH IN PRAYER SERVICE, LOCAL BOYS UNTOUCHED
Or if he touches a girl.
"A psychologist said that many priests, because of their religious beliefs, didn't have sex in their teens"
Well, I didn't have sex until I was a 20-something college student. I was closeted at the time and fucked-up about my sexuality. But I don't go around having sex with teen boys. I don't really buy that explanation. Many people other than priests don't lose their virginity until they are in their 20s or sometimes even older than that.
This happened in Pennsylvania and on a college campus? I'm shocked
I am sure the older gentleman was just counseling the lad. And we all know it is easier to get into the spirit of with one's pants down.
I think there's something you should know...
Another video. I love seeing the spike in viewings under Statistics after the arrest. The comments are lovely too.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
