A priest got arrested because he was having a ménage à trois on the altar of the church where he served as the rector. I say “served” past-tense because they not surprisingly fired his ass and stripped him of his collar. (I wonder if he was wearing the collar while engaging in the act. He wasn’t wearing anything *else* if he was.) Technically he didn’t get arrested for having the sex. He got arrested because what he was doing was visible through the window to passersby on the street outside. Somebody did see, and said somebody promptly called el policio. Mr. Establishment showed up and hauled the frisky perv away to the pokey for public indecency or lewdness or something of that flavor.
This one has urban legend written all over it, but it really happened. It’s been well documented. The pervy priest is named Travis Clark and he was pastor of St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Pearl River, Louisiana. The diocese burned the altar which Travis and his friends had profaned. “[Clark’s] desecration of the altar is demonic…” said Archbishop Gregory Aymond. “When a church has been used for unholy things and it has been desecrated, we must drive away the evil spirit, and that is what we do today.”
Hey, we’re all sinners. We’re all sketchy. But there’s no reason to be all deliberately tacky about it. Besides, demons.
