FORGIVE ME FATHER, FOR I HAVE SINNED...

Where to start with this one, I'm so uneasy sharing this "mishap." But, the humor in this and the reality of this fella calling 911 will leave you in tears...tears of laughter.

Rev. Thomas Donovan of Springfield, IL has "different" interests away from his day job. Yes, let's go with "different."

Warm Orange

 

This Catholic Priest found enjoyment in getting into full on BONDAGE situations, or outfits, or whatever...and doing it IN THE CHURCH. A call was placed to 911 from St. Aloysius Church, from Rev. Donovan, because he was...trapped? He was in handcuffs that he put on upside down and couldn't get them off. He was worried that something serious, a "medical situation" would happen if he didn't receive help with his cuffs. So, he called 911...are you ready for this 911 call? Seriously, are you ready to hear a Priest call 911 so he can get help getting out of a bondage outfit? Here goes:

His tone during the call, can I just say "oh my god!"  Obviously something was muffling his voice, something keeping him from speaking clearly. He was a combo of nervous, yet joyful. Yes, "joy" there's an overused word that works perfectly here.

When first responders arrived, here is how they found the reverend.

  • Wearing an orange jumpsuit
  • A leather bondage type mask
  • With bar in his mouth
  • Handcuffed behind his back

After cops uncuffed Rev Donovan, we refused medical treatment. I mean hell, you wouldn't wanna embarrass yourself, right? He claims he acted alone with this bondage situation he got himself into and this was something that happened on the regular.

The priest was put on leave from his duties with the "Diocese of Springfield." SG
