"I was bitten must have been the devil"

Wouldn't it be nice...

If priests actually acted like priests. Here's the story unfolding now in Berlin, CT. We get one or two of these a year.

Berlin police have formally charged Father Michael Miller of St. Paul's Church with having inappropriate contact with a minor.

Police said they served an arrest warrant for Miller, 41, on Tuesday, after an investigation that began on June 30. He is charged with five counts of risk of injury to a minor and impairing the morals of a minor, and one count of criminal attempt to obscenity.

Police said Miller was processed and released after posting a $150,000 court set bond. He is scheduled to appear in New Britain Superior Court on July 26.

In a recent statement delivered to parishioners at the church, Father Robert Schlageter said "the Archdiocese of Hartford and the Franciscan Friars are cooperating fully with this investigation. We are trying to be as open as possible and we will provide additional information when we are able."

Miller was taken by Lifestar on the morning July 4 to a local hospital. It is unknown what medical condition he suffered.

Again, as long as he's a good Christian and confesses his sins its not a big deal. God must be extremely liberal because if he were a conservative he'd be for the death penalty and wouldn't forgive these molesters so easily.


  1. Well, of course, lots of people hide behind the old, "God forgives me" line. But, if there IS a God, and he's everything he's cracked up to be he sees through bullshit and insincere confessions and maybe tacks on another thousand years in purgatory for being a bonehead.

  2. If there is a powerful god he could stop children's suffering at the hands of others. How can he not have the power to stop this yet it's gods will? He has the power or will to send plagues and direct armies to smite the enemy, allow tornados to kill, so he either directly or passively allows men to rape and choke children?
    I believe in God, and he is a sniveling inept unhelpful myth of a thousand faces and sects. Like the Pharo's gods, the proto-sapiens bear gods, gods pass, all things must pass, we are all only one god away from atheism. Zarathustra, Jehova? I think we need to hire a new god, the old ones just don't cut it in the suppression of evil department.

    Why are so many child molesters attracted to the priesthood?
