Post Priest Accused of Abuse Drops Another Shocker: Heís Married

Oh, no. This is just so sad.

A British court is about to reach a verdict in a sexual assault case against Father William Finnegan, pastor of St. Clareís Roman Catholic Church in Fagley, Bradford. According to a report in the Daily Mail, Father Finnegan is accused of forcibly kissing and inappropriately touching a 17-year-old girl last Easter Sunday.

The priest insists that he was not at faultóthat in fact, the teenager had initiated the encounter, kissing him on the lips, and he forcefully pushed her away, explaining that her action was inappropriate.

But to buttress his defense, Finneganís barrister Jeffrey Hill Baker dropped another bomb: The Catholic priest had been secretly married to a former parishioner in 1999. Hill-Baker told the jury:

No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

And something worse, he has lied.

"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your fatherís desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies." - John 8:44

Telling a jury that yes, your client actually is just fine with breaking his solemn vows of celibacy and is really skilled in hiding the truth about his romantic and sexual relationships from everyone, might not be a good idea.

Wait, I thought celibacy was why something like .1% of RC priests committed sexual abuse. That's what Piers Morgan told everyone! Why would he lie like that?
