Nebraska church ousts ‘invasive’ priest who grilled kids on masturbation and porn during confession

Published

A priest from the St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church in Nebraska has been ousted after he asked middle-school children about their affinities for pornography and masturbation while they were taking confession.

The Omaha World Herald reports that 26-year-old Rev. Nicholas Mishek was relieved of his duties at the church after parents complained he asked their children if they masturbated or watched pornography while they were talking with him in a confession booth.

“There was this line of questioning that’s unacceptable, and he asked two questions that are particularly unacceptable,” Deacon Tim McNeil, chancellor and spokesman for the Archdiocese of Omaha, told the World Herald. “And parents reacted strongly, and should have, and we responded to that.”

McNeil said that Mishek was being overzealous in his questioning of the children, as he said that priests are not supposed to make inquiries of such a personal nature, especially to young children.

“There are parents who are Catholic who have experiences of their own with the sacrament of reconciliation who know questioning is not a usual or encouraged practice,” he said. “The nature of those two questions, they thought that was a little personal and maybe too invasive.”

A new documentary called "Where’s My Roy Cohn?" exposes the history of Trump's hero, who first became famous during Sen. Joseph McCarthy's hearings about purported communist infiltration of the United States government in the 1950s.

Politico senior staff writer Michael Kruse has written up a review of the documentary in which he explains why Trump obviously finds Cohn so appealing: For decades he got away with remorselessly breaking the law.

"You guys weren't involved in that at all were you?" the officer asked Vance Benton and his son in the footage, which was shared by the Daily Mail.

Trump has shrunk the White House entirely around himself: ‘It is a government of one’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has cleared out all the constraints in his White House, which he's running much like the Trump Organization.

The president has chased away four national security advisers, three chiefs of staff, three directors of oval office operations and five communications directors -- an unprecedented amount of turnover for a modern president — and finds himself surrounded by compliant staffers and aides, reported Politico.

“It is a government of one in the same way in which the Trump Organization was a company of one,” said one former senior administration official.
