Editor's Note: After last night's piece about the Catholic priest who fathered a son 22 years ago, many of you thanked us for bringing the story to light. We received a lot of comments about this story. What do you think?
Interesting and yet another example of people not taking responsibility for their own actions. Why did the boy's mother engage (repeatedly) in sex with a priest and what did she expect out of it. Her beef is with the boy's father and not with the institution he violated in his sacrilege. It's good that you brought this travesty out; but now what? I wish the mother peace.
At 18 child supports stops for everyone else, but she feels she is entitled to receive it indefinitely. I wish I could have received $233,000 for my three sons, but I had to work 2 jobs to make ends meet and didn't complain. She needs to be grateful and enjoy him while she can. I lost 2 of my son and they were 18 and 26 years old when they died. She knew exactly what she was doing when she was sleeping with the priest. We are talking about two consenting adults. I don't think she was held at gunpoint nor raped. They both are to blame.
Great job on this story. Please keep these stories going. People (Catholics especially) need to be informed.
There is a special place in hell for the woman that sleeps with a priest. She knew what she was doing. Now she needs money and she is looking for pity–None from me.
