Msgr. Meth: Priest Arrested After Dealing Crystal Meth From Catholic Cathedral

article-2263972-16FF2F76000005DC-89_308x425250px-MethpipeIt reads like Breaking Bad meets The Bells of St. Mary’s meets La Cage aux Folles. Monsignor Kevin Wallin was arrested for allegedly dealing crystal meth at Bridgeport’s St. Augustine Cathedral. Also coming out were allegations that Wallin was was a cross-dresser who was having sex in the rectory at Bridgeport’s St. Augustine Cathedral.

Wallin, 61, was arrested just before he was about to take a flight to London for vacation. He is being labelled “Msgr. Meth” due to accounts that he was selling upwards of $9,000 of meth a week. That is just short of half a million dollars a year. Not bad for someone who took a vow of poverty.

He was ordained in 1984 and resigned in 2011. Wallin later bought an adult specialty and video store in North Haven called Land of Oz that sells sex toys and X-rated DVDs. Investigators are suggesting that the store was actually a means to launder thousands of dollars in weekly profits. He also rented two apartments — one for himself and the other for his alleged drug partner, Kenneth “Lyme” Devries.

He is being represented by a federal public defender.

  1. I am sure the Pope is relieved that he didn’t try to ordain a women or take care of a poor person. That would be too shocking.

  2. Nice catch Mike A! However, this case is a prime example of the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church and many other large religions. They have no problem hiding child predators from the police and from their flocks, while at the same time claiming that gays are evil and women cannot be part of the hierarchy of the Church. The RCC needs some of the good Sisters to clean house.

  3. Yet another priest in another catholic disease…I mean, diocese, did something immoral. Does anyone still believe the lie “you need god to be good”?

    Apparently, plenty still do, and they’ll happily lie about it. They’ll either claim that Wallin “isn’t a TRUE christian!” (because he dealt drugs and cross dressed) or that he “isn’t a christian!” at all (because he’s catholic).

  4. Mike Spindell thank you for your thought.

    I find myself very cynical at times and often in my quest to find the hypocrisy in others I neglect the oversights (hypocrisies) within myself. If Religious leaders would just practice their preachings, Lead by example and promote goodness with goodness, I would be much less cynical.
    Too often my critical eye sees a coercive threatening message in many preachings. “Do this or be damned. BTW don’t pay any attention to the abuses and failings of the church …..we mean well and we speak for god.”

    Another point, when the Rabbi presented “the love of money” is bringing people down, and misleading them and their values, (my interpretation of his statement) I cracked up.
    Mr Kudlow is well respected among his peers, many people watch his show for insight on money issues.
    I personally believe the love and pursuit of money at the cost of neglecting and or rejecting other peoples human rights is an Unholy pursuit.
    My chagrin and delight was to hear this Rabbi issue a “worship of money over human value is bad” statement right between the eyes of Kudlow on his show. … Larry then immediately turned to the priest to ask a question. …….LOL

    • I don’t understand…. What do they mean, he was a cross-dresser? Did he abandon his dress for pants??? 😉

  5. Another Fox hypocrite, Huckabee, having a “national day of prayer”

    A Day To Pray

    Public · By Mike Huckabee.

    Join me for “A Day to Pray”, where we will ask God to grant our leaders, from the local school houses to the White House, the wisdom they need for the road ahead. We will gather to ask God for forgiveness and healing of our land and to bless our Country and her people. This will not be a political rally but a spiritual event and hopefully one that can help bring us together as we move forward as a nation.

    “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

    More details to follow.

  6. Rafflaw: What do you Mean when you say that you “had” Benedictine sisters in Grade school?
    Is this a sister wives tale?

    I thought that Benedictine was Latin for frontward not backwards or not arsewise. Pig Latin would be “enedictineBay”. I heard that Pope Benedict had some wild sisters but they would have been before your tine.

    My God the things that go on in schools.
