It’s just like Breaking Bad, but replace the mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher with a prominent Catholic priest. Monsignor Kevin Wallin of Bridgeport, Conn., is facing trial for selling up to $9,000 of methamphetamine a week and has been relieved of his ecumenical duties after superiors learned of his alleged penchant for gay sex on church grounds.

The 61-year-old was suspended from duties at Bridgeport’s St. Augustine Cathedral in May as a result of his increasingly erratic behavior. “We became aware that he was acting out sexually — with men — in the church rectory,” Brian Wallace, a spokesman for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport, told the Connecticut Post. A source also told the paper that Wallin allegedly enjoyed dressing in women’s clothes. However, the monsignor continued to receive a stipend from the diocese until his Jan. 3 arrest at his apartment on drug charges, according to a report in the Connecticut Post. (The diocese denies any knowledge of alleged narcotics peddling by Wallin.)

The arrest sent shock waves through the Bridgeport community, where Wallin was respected for his extensive charity work and his charming sermons. “There is an evil invading our world and it has come to our church,” longtime parishioner Maria Spencer-Fonseca told those gathered outside the cathedral on Thursday, according to the Connecticut Post. “This was a work of evil — and I am praying for the monsignor.” Wallin was previously a respected and influential member of the clergy who served as pastor of St. Peter Parish in Danbury, Conn., according to the Huffington Post, and also worked as an aide to Bishop Edward Egan, who later became a Cardinal and the Archbishop of New York.

Federal court records allege that Monsignor Wallin sold several grams of highly refined crystal meth — testing up to 98.5% pure — to undercover cops on six different occasions over the course of five months. He also received a consignment of nearly 400 g of the drug in December from connections in California, according to the indictment. According to media reports, Wallin was also an owner of a North Haven, Conn., sex-toy and drug-paraphernalia shop called Land of Oz, which may have been used as a money-laundering front. Wallin and four associates are scheduled to be arraigned this week, according to the Daily Beast; they are expected to plead not guilty.

How can the Roman Catholic church continue to give "Monsignor" (meaning "my Lord") Kevin Wallin "a stipend" till January 3 even though he was known as sexual deviant in May 2012 ? When the apostle Paul became aware of a man within the Corinthian congregation that was sexually deviant, he commanded to "remove the wicked man from among yourselves."(1 Cor 5:13) He further told them "to quit mixing in company with anyone called brother that is a fornicator.....not even eating with such a man."(1 Cor 5:11)


Thus, it is apparent that the Catholic church does not see the seriousness of sexual misconduct, allowing for the over 12,000 known pedophiles to have practiced their sexual wrongs within the Catholic church over the last 60 years. With the Catholic church being part of the symbolic "harlot" at Revelation 17, it has indeed practiced both literal and symbolic fornication with the "kings of the earth."(Rev 17:1, 2)

Another one bites the dust. Religion is a farse and it's "leaders" are the biggest clowns of all. When will people wake up to the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church? Find a healthy spirituality that doesn't reward pious illusion and sanctimonious BS.

Perhaps the need for gay men to hide behind the "cloth" will disappear as homosexuality gains acceptance in our society.  Perhaps the "NEED" for anyone to hide behind the church will disappear.  One day people will understand organized religion for what it truly is, a business to keep people controlled, dependent, insecure and poor.  The catholic church would serve a much higher purpose if it sold some of it's vast treasure and invested the proceeds into educating the poor about birth control and family planning.......

Tolerance of moral decay or any decay, is more decay. It is up to the parishioners to clean-up their church. This clean-up will never be done by the clergy, as they are decayed all of the way up to pope.

At least this priest is having sex with adults.  The sex under these circumstances is a far sight more acceptable than what we have been reading about for the last 10 - 15 years.  Now the drug sales, that is another story!

Tolerance of the sexual perversion called homosexuality is eating away at both the Catholic Church and society at large, as evidenced by the legal travesty of “gay marriage”. Even the so-called Pedophilia Scandal was not that for the most part. The fact is that a majority of victims were post-puberty teenaged boys, attraction to whom does not meet the clinical definition of pedophilia (sexual attraction to prepubescent children of either gender). Therefore, the scandal should have been called the Homosexuality Scandal. It wasn’t because that wouldn’t have fit the fashionable narrative that “gays” are healthy and normal.

Priests who have sex with men should be defrocked after the first offense and become social pariahs. Priests (as well as anyone else) who molest a young child should be executed after the first offense.

@eljin123 Great distraction, but you are lying, just likek a Catholic.  PROVE that "there are thousands of rabbis..."

However, the Catholic church ADMITTED 4% of their priests in the US were substantiated, accused child sex offenders in THEIR OWN REPORT, the John Jay report of 2004, and that the number was actually 8-9% in the 70s and 80s.No one else in history is anywhere close to that level of evil, and the Catholic church is the only one that moved thousands of them around and hid them.

You showed evidence of 4.  I shoed the Catholic church's own admission of 4,392 from the John Jay report, so the Catholic church is at least a THOUSAND times worse.

 This is really tiresome. If abuse by Jewish religious figures goes unreported, how come YOU know all about it? The Catholic Church is persecuted by the newsmedia, but I don't see Jews as the main ones behind it. Above all it's done by unfaithful Catholics, despicable little Judases who wish to make the Church into their own putrid image. Charlie Campbell is quite possibly one such individual.

The only valid reason for anyone to join the Church is a desire to serve God. Those who join to commit sodomy are no more servants of God than Judas was. That it may have gone on for a long time only adds to the egregiousness. There is no such thing as a "legitimate loving" relationship of that sort. 

The Catholic Church is already the world's largest charitable and educational organization. The Church does not have a "vast treasure" save for art work, which serves extremely important cultural and religious purposes and should not be in the hands of some hedge fund manager or Arab sheikh. As to the buildings, the notion that the Church should not have churches is idiotic beyond comment. Finally, you can take your despicable suggestion that the Church join the Culture of Death by teaching people to make themselves artificially barren or even kill their unborn children and go to hell.

@eljin123 show where ANY institution admitted 4,392 substantiated, accused child sex offenders, as the Catholic church ADMITTED in the US in their own John Jay report of 2004.

The Catholic church is the world's largest pedophile protection program, and its followers will lie and distract from the truth (as you did).  God will not forgive you for it, even if your church of pedophile protection will forgive you.

@eljin123 The Catholic church is the world's largest organized child rape crime syndicate.  No one else is even close.

@FabioJuliano  The Catholic Church has always been a refuge for gay men to hide from the persecution found in open society.  Hopefully, as society changes and becomes more accepting of legitimate loving relationships between men the need to hide behind the cloth will disappear.  Furthermore the "Need" for anyone to hide behind the church will disappear!!

@FabioJuliano @eljin123 "Despicable little Judases?" Holy Moses! Did YOU ever get out of bed on the wrong side!Did you ever stop to think that MAYBE this is just his (weird, but maybe in some spheres normal)  idea of FUN? Jews (inner sanctum?) have always been difficult to understand, for me. Like, why they think they are the CHOSEN ones to go to heaven? But ANYBODY can join their club. No DNA passcard, besides being human (correct me if I'm wrong, mate). Kevin didn't kill anybody we know of. If (kinky) sex in a rectory is a crime (somewhere) then punish him (in that somewhere). What's got those people riled is that they feel DUPED by somebody they evidently feel superior to. TSK, TSK. Go watch some reruns of Queer as Folk and you'll be back in a snap. "PUTRID IMAGE?" LOL.... FabioJuliano, I like your avatar. It looks so vainishly El Greco. I bet he's got silk panties on.

If Christ was sent to die for our sins than Judas served a role that was inescapable. Why would God condemn Judas when he was an essential part of the plan?

Seems to me that the religious prefer to condemn just about everybody... I suppose that religious people must have a bible rammed so far up their butts that it makes them unable to think rationally.

@Hadrewsky @Jakaro    Maybe another way to view the purpose of Judas is... if you were condemned to die... who better than your close friend to warn you.  Maybe his deed was done out of love to Jesus.. and not so much a betrayl.  Judas knew Jesus' death was inevitable.  We must have compassion for all mankind!!!  Period!!!
