BOCA RATON - A new priest at St. Gregory's Episcopal Church was issued a citation for allegedly soliciting sex in a North Carolina public park's men's room recently.
Though the announcement came out this week, police issued a citation for solicitation to the Rev. Michael Penland in June during a Waynesville police sting operation dubbed Operation Summer Heat. Waynesville is located near Asheville, N.C.
Penland, who has been a youth minister at the Boca Raton church since November, allegedly followed an undercover officer and solicited sex from him, police said. Penland allegedly followed the officer as he left the park and was pulled over.

Has anyone remembered to feel sorry for these undercover cops? I just did.
If only those Episcopalians would let their priests marry ...
My first thought when I saw this.
This priest is following in the footsteps of his leader, the bishop Vickie Robinson.
Was it toe tappin’, wide stance gay sex?
Tappity tappity tappity tappity tappity tappity tap.
LOL, they've spread from Asheville to Waynesville (although they were sort of in Waynesville already). I guess they just skipped over Canton..course everybody skips over Canton. There were a few questionable sorts over in Maggie Valley at one time as well
What’s up with arrests or charges in the summer, and the news doesn’t break till fall? I find myself wondering who is breaking the stories, and why.
Traditional Anglican ping, continued in memory of its founder Arlin Adams.
FReepmail Huber or sionnsar if you want on or off this moderately high-volume ping list (sometimes 3-9 pings/day).
This list is pinged by Huber and sionnsar.

Speak the truth in love. Eph 4:15
“This priest is following in the footsteps of his leader, the bishop Vickie Robinson.”
You guys are not challenging yourselves making fun of the Episcopal “Church”. It pretty much parodies itself, and is barely even recognizably Christian.
This kind of stuff would not happen if Episcopal priests were allowed to marry.
Yeah, but he’s a Dem. Move along....
I don't have a lot of love for liberal Episcopalians, but actually the United Church of Christ was the first mainline denomination to ordain open homosexuals (for about 20 years now), but, being similar to Presbyterians, they have no bishops.
4 years ago the Episcopal Church in the USA (ECUSA) (now just called The Episcopal Church, or TEC) did consecrate an openly homosexual bishop--and this issue is tearing apart the worldwide Anglican Communion--the 3rd largest Christian denomination on earth.
A majority of Episcopal bishops voted for the sodomite bishop--and that denomination is losing members in the tens of thousands every year.... Still, it's tolerance of homosexual behavior would depend largely upon the bishop...a few dioceses wouldn't tolerate it at all, though, unfortunately, most would. This month by the way, is key for the Episcopalians, as the rest of the Anglican Communion has given ECUSA an ultimatum...to not consecrate more perverted bishops or "solomize" homosexual unions... which, the liberal dioceses appear not to be willing to stop at all. The libs see themselves on the "enlightened edge", and are typically very intolerant of biblical obedient Christians. Look for after Sept 30 either: 1) the worldwide Anglican Communion to break up (if Canterbury sides with ECUSA) OR, 2) ECUSA to be put under some sort of disciplinary probation period..... I suspect it will be the #1) as the Archbishop of Canterbury is liberal on the sodomite issue--and the (evangelical, orthodox) African bishops appear to be in no mood to compromise (how can you compromise between "abomination" and "a new move of the Holy Spirit?"). I expect to see 2 worldwide Anglican Communions within 2 years or less. Of course everyone knows now that the Church of Rome has secretly tolerated active homosexuals for many years, even while officially condemning the practices--so at least the 'piskis are honest about it. Still, God's word is not ambiguous...homosexual behavior really is an abomination.
I fully support the hanging-Death Penalty for anyone that repeatedly sexually assaults Children!
Good grief! Sure hope he’d been using a condom at home. I’d sure hate for his wife to get AIDS because of his stupidity.
