Conn. priest gets 3 years for stealing from church
Amazing! This homosexual priest (no surprise there) stole over a million dollars from the church and isn’t required to re-pay it? What the hell?
For those of you Catholic faithful out there who still question the wealth of the Catholic Church and the fact that religion is nothing more than a business, just consider the revenues that this church must have generated for a priest to steal over a million dollars from it. Now, multiply that by the number of Catholic churches, schools, land-ownership, etc. around the world – and they don’t pay taxes!!! How disgusting is that?

WATERBURY, Conn. – A Roman Catholic priest in Connecticut has been sentenced to three years in prison after pleading no contest to stealing more than $1 million in church money and spending it on male escorts and a lavish lifestyle.
The Rev. Kevin Gray, former pastor at Sacred Heart/Sagrado Corazon Parish in Waterbury, was also sentenced Wednesday to three years of probation.
The Republican-American reports that a plea of no contest was entered on Gray’s behalf, which means he didn’t admit guilt, but a conviction for first-degree larceny was entered on his record.
Prosecutors say the 65-year-old Gray won’t have to pay back the money because the Diocese of Hartford did not ask for restitution.
Gray’s attorney called many of the charges against his client overblown.
