Catholic Navy Chaplain Goes to Jail

They warned us in Chaplain school that there were chaplains doing “the long course” at Leavenworth, making big rocks into small rocks. Three things were likely to get a chaplain into the hoosegow they said: SAM. Sex, alcohol, or money (or a combination of the above).

A Catholic Navy Chaplain, John Thomas Lee,  is going to jail for having homosexual sex, for not telling his partners that he had HIV, and for preying upon enlisted sailors who were sent to him for counseling.
