Breaking God: Former Roman Catholic priest busted for selling meth to feds

 

(NY Post) A former Roman Catholic priest is among five people who have been indicted by a federal grand jury in an alleged drug operation involving shipments of methamphetamine to Connecticut from California.

Federal prosecutors said Kevin Wallin, 61, former pastor at St. Augustine’s parish in Bridgeport, received the shipments and sold methamphetamine to an undercover officer six times since last September. Prosecutors say investigators also gathered evidence from court-authorized wiretaps.

The grand jury in Bridgeport indicted the five people Tuesday on charges of conspiring to distribute 500 grams or more of a substance containing methamphetamine and 50 grams of actual methamphetamine. Wallin, of Waterbury, was also charged with six counts of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. The conspiracy charges carry 10 years to life in prison upon conviction. [more]

    Drug abuse, manufacture and marketing are commonplace among today’s Roman Catholic priests, and their bishops are not only quite aware of what’s going on, they cover for them and work assiduously to keep the media away. How much longer, O Lord?!

    • Andrew says:

      Baptizing babies and converts, forgiving sinners through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, joining a man and woman together as one in the Sacrament of marriage, administering the Last Rites to the dying and comforting the grieving families, and last but never least… Performing the holy sacrifice of the Mass that brings Jesus’ Body and Precious Blood to the people. All of these blessings are brought to us by God’s holy priesthood. Bad apples like this guy represent a very minuscule fraction. It’s a shame that intolerant atheists, secular progressives, Freemasons and the scum in the media gotten away with this hatchet job on the Catholic priesthood.

      • Tony says:

        Andrew, it isn’t the media that is doing a hatchet job on the Catholic priesthood it is the priests themselves, the reporters are doing what they should be doing, reporting…..Thank God for our freedom of the press. By the way, priests don’t unite couples in matrimony, the couple unite themslves while the priest is the official witness.

        • Andrew says:

          Three things in life are certain: death, taxes and Tony chiming in on sex abuse scandals. The media IS doing a hatchet job on the Catholic priesthood and have been for decades. I know you adore trash like the Huffington Puffington Post and the New York Times so I’m not going to bother dissecting the bias against the priesthood and the Holy Catholic Church. I’m still waiting for these and other lamestream, national media outlets to do some accurate reporting on all those people who have LIED about being abused by priests to hurt the Church and extort settlements they don’t deserve but I’m not holding my breath. As for marriage… give me a break! A marriage that does not take place in a Catholic Church, presided over by a priest or deacon is not a valid Catholic marriage. But, you openly support gay marriage so you’re going to believe whatever you want. That’s your problem.

          • Larry Perssiko says:

            Where do you see Tony chiming in on sex abuse scandals?
            Please come clean and tell us you are really dead eye momma Angelica typing with a pencil held between your teeth. Tony is just pointing out a werird ass priest who liked to cross dress and have sex in the rectory at Bridgeports St. Augustine Cathedral, while selling and abusing meth. Are you ignorant enough to believe that the media should not report about this wierd ass when he has an arrest record that is public information?

          • Tony says:

            Andrew when a marriage is not celebrated in a church or in the presence of a minister of the the church, without proper delegation from the bishop it is invalid due to lack of form.
            The harm done to the victims of the clergy sex abuse scandal is unimagineable. The victims lives are often destroyed, suicide, drugs and all maner of dysfunction become part of the victims lives and their families too. All because Father wanted to play out some perverted sick fantasy and his bishop often sent him to a new parish where Father could get new victims because of his position of power and trust.
            That God for the whistle blowers who put an end to this evil in the church. The victims deserve every penny their compete t lawyers get for them.

    God forgave so should we, I feel sorry that this man’s mistake is now out to the whole world. We all SIN.

    • Catholic Lady says:

      Elizabeth; Is this not what christians have been asking for – no more covering up the mistakes or sins of the Churh?

    • Catholic Lady says:

      Elizabeth, sorry for the spelling error – I will repeat my comment – Is this not what Catholic christians have been asking for – no more covering up the mistakes or sins of the Church?

    • Philthy says:

      I think you are confusing forgiveness with accountability. We can forgive him, but his sin has other consequences which need to be addressed as well. King David was forgiven his sin of adultery/murder but there were still consequences…

    • Ruthann says:

      Elizabeth,
      Let’s call it what it is! This was not a ‘mistake’ – it was a bad CHOICE he made, which is what one does when one SINS. A mistake would have been made if he intended to sell something else instead of the drugs!

  3. Recovering Catholic says:

    Certainly no surprise to me! I hope he gets the help he needs at a 12-Step program.

  4. Dr. Sarah A. Dolan says:

    Really Larry, couldn’t couldn’t
    you post a comment without all the invectitudes. Even a 8 year old wouldn’t speak like that. The problem seems to be more with you than the UsCCB, although they are by no means
    perfect.

    • Larry Perssiko says:

      An 8 year old wouldn’t speak like that because an 8 year old wouldn’t realize just how many criminals actually make up the membership of the USCCB. You must not have a clue what types of crimes these men have been totally aware of and completely looked the other way for decades ignoring them. I could spend hours just pointing out the crimes that took place under the watch of the fool William Lori who was this very priests own bishop in Bridgeport for several years. You need to wake up before you open up that mouth.

  5. Florian says:

    Not uncommon, sad to say. A midwestern priest busted for selling cocaine to college students out of his rectory even made Saturday Night Live for saying “High Mass.” The bishops are losing the war for souls.

  6. Larry Perssiko says:

    This not only tells a story about this priest but it also lets us know what kind of jackasses make up the membership of the USCCB!!!!
    Jackasses, some of which run around enjoying their dellusions of grandure thinking “I might be the first American pope,” while also signing pay checks for jerks like this priest. It is amazing just how stupid ALL of the USCCB members are when this stuff goes on right under their noses and they waste thier time on witch hunts on nuns. Every bishop, arch bishop and cardinal in this country deserves to be spit right in their faces.

    • Veronica B. says:

      Agree with some of what you write, but definitely NOT the last sentence. No one deserves to be spit on. No one is perfect, not one.

  7. Tony says:

    I don’t get it,!! I don’t want to get it. This whole thing reads of evil.

    • Recovering Catholic says:

      It’s not evil, Tony; it’s just human frailty. None of us are gods or should be seen as such — especially not priests.

    • Tony says:

      Selling illegal drugs is EVIL. They destroy human life…

      • Catholic Lady says:

        Recovering, I do not understand your reasoning. A formerpriest is indicted by a federal grand jury in an alleged drug operation involving shipments of meth – and your comment is it is jus human frailty, not evil Tony.
        A former Num is found in an adulterous situation – she is only human and not immune to the charms of a man – another example of human frailty.
        However: Bishops covering up sex abuse in the Church is pure evil. Tony, you are right illegal drugs are destroying the lives of many humans in our countries and are EVIL – ADULTRY is a SIN – see the Ten Commandments. And sex abuse is also a sin – but perhaps covering it up could even be considered by recovering to be a human frailty.
