Cocaine-Dealing Priest Reveals Flaw in Theological Education

Per the AP, a 33-year-old Roman Catholic priest named Christopher Layden has pled guilty to selling modest amounts of cocaine in his own rectory.

This is one of those stories that will probably disappear soon, and never be heard from again.  But it certainly leaves us wondering what happened, and what will eventually happen. Father A., sputtering with rage and confusion just now, blurted out "Hey, didn't they talk to you about this in seminary?"

To which the always more thoughtful Mrs. A. responded, "Well, did anybody talk to you about it in seminary?"  And she's right:  the subject never came up.  Not once.
