Drinan was arrested in Denver, Colo. by federal authorities on charges of committing lewd, indecent or obscene acts in public while on board a Southwest Airlines flight originating in Baltimore, Md. According to a passenger, After Drinan boarded the plane, he hooked up his laptop computer to Wi-Fi internet service, started watching pornography and began “fondling himself.” I wonder if he waited until the plane got off the ground. A male flight attendant was summoned. Drinan tried to hide his manly parts under his laptop computer. But to no avail, his genitalia was still exposed. No, I don’t know how large the laptop was. The flight attendant then told him to “put his pants back together.”
This isn’t the first time Drinan has had problems with lewdness. He was ordained as a Catholic priest in 1977 and served the Diocese of Austin, Tex. In 2002, he was accused of inappropriate behavior with a minor and was relieved from his daily priestly duties. In 2005, he somehow found his way to Reno and worked at a treatment facility for paroled prisoners with addiction problems. He left the Church in 2006. If convicted of lewd, indecent or obscene acts in public aboard an aircraft, he could face not more than 90 days in jail where another sick priest will council him and can share some of his intimate experiences with himself. Failure to pay a possible $250,000 fine could put him in jail where he will have an inmate audience to share his style of self gratification.
Always quick to quote the book of Genesis (2:24-25) which states: “a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh; Christians claim marriage is a natural act between a man and a women, not the unity of two homosexuals. Contradictory to their own belief in the scriptures, their Catholic priests take the vow of celibacy (to remain unmarried), which is an unnatural act that defies the word of their own God. Evidently, a priest can have all the sex he wants with anyone he desires, wherever he wants, especially with himself — as long as he is not married.
