Florida priests accused of embezzling $8 million

God be with you...but not with you!

In a bold scheme carried out over decades, two respected priests are accused of stealing more than $8.6 million in cash from the collection plates at St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church to bankroll lavish secret lives that included steady girlfriends, investments in property in Florida and Ireland and gambling junkets to casinos in Las Vegas and the Bahamas.

These are the middle-men between you and God for you Catholics. They'll make sure he gets your confession, right after a quick roll. Come on lucky seven! Damn...crapped out.

Arrested on a grand-theft charge was retired Monsignor John A. Skehan, 79, who served as pastor at St. Vincent for more than 40 years.

Luckily he was caught before he stole a lot of money. I mean 8.6 million is pocket change for churches.

"He was very remorseful . . .," Delray Beach Detective Thomas Whatley said.

I'm sure he was extremely remorseful after getting caught. So...umm...why did God let this happen?

He feels that that money went to a good cause.
