At Least He Isn't Gay!

And that's the best I can muster for Rev. Luis Margarito who was removed from his position in a Reading church. That and least it didn't happen in the DOS.

Since the perverse Padre was messing around with an 18 year old girl, I'm sure police are investigating when the relationship began since I'll betcha she was underage when it all started. Also whether or not he was fooling with other ladies at the other parishes where he was assigned, and if he was counseling them. If there was a therapeutic relationship, then he's in it even deeper, as taking advantage of a client/therapist relationship is more illegal than having sex with an underage girl. It's kind of like how a psychiatrist can't have relations with a client. Same dynamic here.

We'll keep an eye on this predator priest and how his case progresses.

A priest at a Reading church who also was chaplain at Central Catholic High School has been removed from both positions by the Allentown Diocese after he acknowledged he had an inappropriate relationship with an 18-year old woman, the diocese said.

The removal of the Rev. Luis A. Bonilla Margarito, 40, was announced to his parish at Saturday’s Mass at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, officials said.

Bonilla had been pastor at the church, 1018 N. Eighth St., since 2006 and chaplain at the high school since 2008.

His relationship with the woman was recent, officials said.

Diocese officials reported the matter to Berks County detectives.

Bonilla, who was ordained in 2000, is no longer permitted to function as a priest and will be going to a treatment facility outside the diocese, officials said.

Prior to his appointed at St. Joseph’s, he had served at three other churches, including St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church, 326 S. Fifth St.

The diocese would not release any further details.

Central Catholic officials and county detectives were unavailable.

He also attended the now defunct St. Pius X Seminary in Dalton, PA (which means he also attended the University of Scranton).
