Especially if you’re a Priest (for Pete’s sake!!!!).
A Catholic TV priest has taken a leave of absence after admitting to a sexual affair with his second cousin. According to the San Bernadino Sun, which first reported the relationship, Michael Manning, 70, will be leaving Wordnet, the worldwide television ministry he founded in San Bernadino in 1978, to reflect on his relationship with Monterey Schools Superintendent Nancy Kotowski. Manning, who claims to no longer have a sexual relationship with his cousin, said he has sought and received forgiveness from God. “That’s the neat thing with Jesus. There can be the chance of starting again,” Manning said in an interview with the Sun.
Ewwwwww….. How’s it even happen? ‘Hey, you’re hot.’ ‘Wow, I’ve always thought that about you too, Father Cousin’ … Gross.
