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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

If the kid told the priest that he was 18, then the priest didn't do anything wrong.

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.

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.

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"

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.

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.
