A Catholic Priest, Orgies, and Grindr
This story caught my eye because I get into a little bit of this type of thing in my newest book, Unabated. But no spoilers.
It’s also classic. A Catholic priest in Ireland was recently outed for having a Grindr account, and it was another alleged Church cover-up.
Coyle was outed when an unnamed source contacted the local Catholic newspaper to confess he had sexted with the holy man on Grindr on several occasions.
In an email to the whistleblower blog Thinking Catholicism, the source, who is over the age of 18, explains: “[Coyle] spoke to me on Grindr a few times and kept wanting to come to my mum’s house for sex with me while she was at work. He sent me lots of naked pics of himself too. When I realized who he was I sent them to a journalist along with the screenshots of his sex chat.”
You can read more here. It’s a disturbing story on several counts that I’d rather not comment on. But there are more than a few people commenting at the link.
Anti-Gay Pastor and Child Porn
Speaking of disturbing religious news…
Meet Dave Reynolds. He’s the recently fired pastor of the Cornerstone Bible Fellowship in Sherwood, Arkansas currently facing 70 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing child pornography.
He’s also vehemently antigay.
Reynolds is pleading not guilty and he’s planning to fight this.
The Gay Daddy Movie
On a much lighter note, there’s a new gay indie film where the focus will be on a gay daddy. It’s titled, Daddy: The Movie, and it’s directed by, and stars, Gerald McCullouch. I like it when actors take control of their own films and give viewers what they want…and what old, cheesy Hollywood will never give them. I think we need more of this and less billion dollar big mouth George Clooney.
Colin McCormack thinks he has it all — a great job, a steady stream of hot younger guys, and a best friends whose devotion he takes for granted. But when a charming and mercurial intern sweeps him off his feet, Colin sees a chance for something more: A family of his own. What he discovers instead is a shattering secret that may cost Colin everything — and everyone — he holds dear.
I love the sound of this one…and Gerald is one hot looking daddy.
