Gee, here's a shocker!

Ya know, I hope that those who commit fraud in the name of God are dealt with almost as harshly as the psychos who commit crimes in His Name.

Since he was returning from a trip to Ireland, I'll put it this way: what a complete arse.

Since they're in Florida, they should have done it the old-fashioned way: through politics!

Cops: Priests fleeced Florida flock of millions

DELRAY BEACH, Florida (AP) -- Two Roman Catholic priests stole millions in offerings and gifts made to their parish as far back as 40 years ago, prosecutors said Thursday.

Monsignor John Skehan, who was pastor at St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church for four decades, was arrested Wednesday night on charges that he stole $8.6 million from the church, using the money to buy property and other assets, investigators said.

The 79-year-old priest was arrested at Palm Beach International Airport as he returned from Ireland and was being held on $400,000 bond on grand theft charges.

The Rev. Francis Guinan, who succeeded Skehan three years ago, has disappeared and was being sought, city police and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said. He is alleged to have stolen an unspecified amount of money to take gambling trips to Las Vegas and the Bahamas.

An anonymous tip in June 2005 led police and the church to launch the investigation.

A spokeswoman with the Diocese of Palm Beach did not immediately return calls seeking comment. It could not be immediately determined if Skehan has an attorney.

Here's a picture of the schmuck:

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

How in the hell does someone steal that much money over a period of time and never get caught?
He sure carries a mean look.

Well, because the churches books are 'closed' so to speak, to everyone, and as usual, there's no oversight of anyone within the irrevocably corrupt and latently evil Catholic faith. I pity everyone who has ever been a Catholic, for they've been misled by minions of Lucifer.
