Connecticut priest charged with taking $1.3 million from parish funds
July 06, 2010
A Connecticut priest has been arrested on felony charges, allegedly having stolen $1.3 million from his parish to pay for his homosexual lifestyle.
Father Kevin Gray allegedly misappropriated funds from Sacred Heart parish in Waterbury to pay for an apartment, travel, entertainment, and even college tuition for men with whom he was involved.
Father Gray had been removed from his parish assignment in April, after officials of the Hartford archdiocese found discrepancies in financial records. Originally placed on medical leave, he was later suspended, and the archdiocese invited police to take up the investigation.

When someone gives into the temptation to indulge in unnatural, objectively disordered perverted acts, then that web of lies, deceit, and evil spreads into other areas of life, such as money. Hope he does the perp walk soon.
