Pastor, cleric, rabbi, shaman, priest – they are just people with the same problems as the general population. They lie, cheat, rape, murder, and steal to cover their base habits. Like Rev. Kevin Gray – he was sentenced to three years in prison for stealing more than $1 million from Scared Heart/Sagrado Corazon Parish. He used the money to pay for male escorts and a lifestyle well beyond his means.
The Dioceses of Hartford did not request that the money be returned, so Gray is off the hook for restitution. Of course, it is easy to be generous with other people’s money. All they need do is put out their donation bucket. The faithful will empty their wallets to make up the difference. They always do.
