DANBURY, Conn. -- A Roman Catholic priest from Fairfield County charged earlier this year with selling methamphetamines plans to plead guilty, the New York Times has reported via The Associated Press.

Monsignor Kevin Wallin, who was once the pastor at St. Peter's in Danbury, is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Hartford next week and is expected to plead guilty to conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute it, according to the filing, obtained by The AP. The charge carries a possible sentence of 10 years to life in prison.

Wallin, 61, allegedly took in more than $300,000 from sales of the drug from his Waterbury apartment in late 2012. He was arrested by federal agents Jan. 3.

Wallin was the pastor of the Cathedral of St. Augustine in Bridgeport for nine years until he resigned in June 2011, citing health and personal problems. The Diocese of Bridgeport suspended him from public ministry in May 2012.

A grand jury indicted Wallin and four others Jan. 15.

I am, and always will be, a believing and faithful Roman Catholic, but if I hear of yet another neurotic homosexual polluting the Church and disgracing it, I think I will puke all over my keyboard. These people should never have been allowed in the seminary to begin with; and our new Pope must make, as his first order of business,the hunting down and removal of any priest or seminarian displaying any homosexual tendencies, including the effeminate mannerisms that unfortunately characterize many of them. They are destroying the Church and undermining the faith of its children, and of the adults for whom Catholicism has been the centerpiece of their earthly lives. Christ used mild violence to drive the money changers out of the temple. The Pope must not hesitate to use force to drive the molesters and buggers out of his Church.

Cute. I bet most of his customers were Democrats. Seems to be the party of choice for lowlifes, welfare recipients, drug addicts & most people who inhabit our ghettos.

But thats irrelevant. Ask our DEMOCRATIC state Senators & Reps WHY Norwalk is only getting some $300,000 from the state for our schools this year?
Maybe if we had the money needed to educate our children we would have LESS people on the street looking for drugs & MORE people working & paying taxes. I dont think its a Dem/Rep issue anymore, both parties are hopelessly liberal, but a blind man can see that Republicans contribute more meaningful things to the community than Democrats by a long shot.
