    Good grief.. I really hate to laugh at another's misfortune, but... This story couldn't get weirder (or campier) if it had been written as fiction.

    Show tune loving, cross dressing priest?
    Goes to lots of broadway shows (with Cdl Egan, at that! :lol:)
    Has sex with strange looking men (well, not everyone can be good looking)
    Runs a sex and smoke shop lol - named for Dorothy! :D
    Launders money there gained from meth sales ...

    I love this story. I really do. More crazy priest stories, please! I wonder if he knows Fr. Stuck-in-Handcuffs???

    In my hometown the two Catholic churches were served by twin priests, identical twin priests, so identical I could not tell them apart twin priests; so St. Mary's could have heard, unawares, a homily delivered by the St. Pat's twin priest if, like, they had wanted to go that route. But, if so, that was probably as kinky as things got. Elderly fellows not given to hijinks, methinks, our twin priests.

    ON my face book I have been saying for a longest time CHARGE THE CHURCH TAX
    They have done more harm to the innocent and abused their power too much.
    YAP all religious organizations need to pay tax, and all wrong doers need to be jailed.

    Twin Priests? Excellent.

    Yeah whatever happened to old Priests who drank and cursed and went out to fine dine every night?

    Seeings that no children were hurt in the event of Msgr. Wallin's fiasco I can offer this:

    Father?

    FWIW we had a Priest busted for buying cocaine here years ago and they plastered the guys face right on the front page. Same with the more recent one picking up of age prostitutes in the same neighborhood the other guy got his cocaine.

    Ummmmm if I was the florist in New Haven Connecticut with the same name as that "sex and smoke" shop I'd change it. They have a FB page to which I won't link. Oddly enough that's all that popped up though.

    Just google it. Bam it pops up. A front? A joke? For real?

    Plus why does Judy Garland always have to figure in on this sort of mess?

    Oh hold it. The FB belongs to the very same. I guess they had to file it under "Florist". Yelp has it under a smoke shop kind of deal.

    Nothing to see here, but I'll link anyway.

    Please tell me this guy is not an Oblate.

    Father's co-defendant Lyme Devries has a YouTube vid thingie.

    What do ya know? The great and powerful Oz shows up on his list of faves. He also enjoyed twisting in sobriety.

    Wondering if the monsignor ever replaced the 'Agnus Dei' with "Over the Rainbow" at mass at least once.

    Here's an antire article back from 2002 about Father Wallin. The people liked him. He denounced pedophiles although said it was not his job to apologize. Joked a little with his new Parishoner's that he thought twice about going there and was going to fold up his tent.


    http://articles.courant.com/2002-04-15/news/0204151348_1_parishioners-sexual-misconduct-priests

    Just came across an article about the co-defendants from OC, and how very normal that couple was. Now I lost it.

    Honestly I think Wallin and Devries had smoked up their own meth. Horrible, awful, highly addictive drug.

    Seriously, it would probably be an improvement over much of the new liturgical music coming out these days... :D

    In what key? That's a tough song to sing.

    Alright in all seriousness crystal meth is a horrible, awful, ugly drug. It's devastated alot of communities. I'm just wondering out loud.

    Was Monsigior tweaked the heck out when doing a sermon? Did he even use?

    Who in God's name saw him bringing people into the rectory while he dressed as a woman? Did they say anything to HIM?

    Where does one find both a smoke and sex shop in one? Do you go in for your rolling papers, bong and pornography all in one stop?

    Just when the world can't get any stranger. Plus how did he know that couple in OC?

    Gotta wonder if it's that Lyme Devries. Trust me I looked him up and he used to own a fashion fetish shop. One site he's asking where he can put his slings and mummy bags. No word on the bongs though.

    If you google that Oz name of the shop without the rainbow or something it comes up with pics of the shop. All I thought is "Dorothy we're not in Kansas anymore".

    Honestly I so need a life. This stuff intrigues me.

    Note Filly has nothing against fetish fashion. Them slings scare me though.
