“I have to confess, I was going through a nervous breakdown. I was taking pills—tranquilizers. I used to take them all the time. They affected my mind a little bit.”
So says the Catholic priest who admits to having molested Mark “Rehab” Foley back when the disgraced congressman was an enticing altar boy.
The priest admits to massaging the teenage Foley when nude, skinny-dipping with him, being naked in the same room on overnight trips, and taking saunas with the boy. And one night, when Father Valley-of-the-Dolls was particularly fucked up “there was an incident he says he can’t clearly remember that might have gone too far.”
Mercieca said that, at the time, he considered his relationship with Foley innocent. But he now says he could see how his actions could be labeled inappropriate.
You think so, father?
