Priest needed help: handcuffed and gagged in the rectory.

A Catholic priest recently had to phone 911 for a little help with some handcuffs…in the rectory.

The pastor of St. Aloysius church on Springfield’s north end has been granted a leave of absence after he called 911 from the rectory and told a dispatcher that he needed help getting out of handcuffs.

“I’m going to need help getting out before this becomes a medical emergency,” Father Tom Donovan told a dispatcher who sounds a bit incredulous during the Nov. 28 call.

“You’re stuck in a pair of handcuffs?” the dispatcher asks.

“(I was) playing with them and I need help getting out,” Donovan responds.

Donovan told the dispatcher that he was alone in the rectory. It’s not clear exactly how he ended up in handcuffs or why he feared a medical emergency. His voice sounds garbled or muffled on the tape, and sources say that police discovered some sort of gag on the priest when they arrived.

I feel sorry for the guy – not because he was caught being all kinky, but because he still aligns himself with a group that forbids him his humanity.  Come be with the atheists and be exactly who you are, and as kinky as you want to be.
