I just got caught up reading the story about Fr. Wallin, who was enough of a chancery sweetheart to be elevated to the status of Monsignor.
"News of Monsignor Kevin Wallin's arrest comes with a sense of shock and concern on the part of the diocese and the many people of Fairfield County who have known him as a gifted, accomplished and compassionate priest," the diocese said in a statement on Jan. 16 after learning about Wallin's arrest. "
You don't say.
Monsignor was quite an accomplished businessman. He had a successful store that sold sex toys and in his compassion, sold drugs to children and drug addicts. $300,000 worth in 2012.
Sadly, the diocese learned he was trying out his gifts with sex toys in the rectory in April of 2001 and sent him on a 'sabbatical'.
The reporter quotes "Voice of the Faithful". What's needed here they say, is more sex and women priests. They said male priests who don't have sex are a terrible malady and threat to the Eucharist.
What I can't figure out is, what then is their objection is to his sex shop? A parishioner at Monsignor Wallin's parish called for prayers and said "This is all the work of evil," she said as she left Mass last weekend. "He was not close enough to God. He was tempted by the devil." I'm afraid it was even worse. Not only was he tempted by the devil, he was tempting others, and there's isn't a dime's worth of difference between Monsignor Wallin and Fr. John Unni, Fr. John Martin, et al. Selling sex and temptation is what makes them so appealing, 'accomplished' and 'compassionate'. But there is always a reason which the chancery and religious superiors choose to exercise its perpetual state of blissful ignorance.
