This guy couldn’t be any more of a stereotype if he tried. 56-year-old Rev. William Jeffery Paulish, a Roman Catholic priest, was recently arrested in the Scranton, Pennsylvania area when he was allegedly caught in his car with a 15-year-old boy who had no pants on when police arrived.
Apparently priests are no different than other creepers when it comes to telling bullshit stories to the cops…
At first, the Rev. Paulish claimed he had been meandering around the campus, stuck on a homily he was crafting. He met the boy by chance and tried to counsel him, as he was in emotional distress, he explained.
Add that to the list of ‘just hanging out’ and ‘just wanted to talk’.
According to police he later admitted posting an ad on craigslist in the casual encounters section and tried playing the ‘he said he was 18′ routine.
Priests and any other clergy, Catholic or otherwise, along with teachers and cops should get even more severe sentences for child molestation. These are positions of trust and to violate that trust with the public calls for more retribution and justice.
