Some say I comment too much on Priests and their wayward habits, but when they just keep giving you story after story you have to ask - "Is it the messenger or is it the message?" (Hint, I believe it is the message. There is something seriously messed up with the Catholic Church and with male Priests. When will somebody try and resolve all of the issues with Priests and the Cathloic Church is the bigger question.)
After a lengthy investigation, the authorities have charged Gray with first-degree larceny, which could carry a 20-year sentence if he's eventually convicted. Apparently for the past seven years Gray has been spending church money to fund trips to New York and pay for sessions with male escorts, and he also racked up $200,000 in restaurant bills including a large tab at Tavern on the Green.
But while it's a terrible thing he's been bilking money from his congregation (and also lied and told his congregation that he had cancer), at least there's one priest behind bars who isn't in trouble for touching his parishioners.
According to reports Gray was a well-respected Catholic priest (oxymoron?) and former leader of several city parishes.
