Pastor Caught at Club with Drugs

Australia: A 60-year-old religious minister was caught with drugs at an inner Sydney nightclub. Looks like he went on a bender after both his church and his wife dumped him. No word on why he was dumped.

Kevin Arthur Caulton pleaded guilty at Downing Centre Local Court to one count of possessing a prohibited drug, an ecstasy tablet stamped with a yellow smiley face.

Caulton, a repressed Uniting Church minister and hospital chaplain, was at the Exchange Hotel's Phoenix Bar on Oxford St, Darlinghurst, on October 3 when it was raided by police with sniffer dogs at 1am.

And the lesson, boys and girls, is that religion causes repression, is bad for you and will only lead to you doing stupid things.

Caulton, of Engadine, turned to police when tapped on the shoulder and said, I've got one ecstasy, court documents reveal. A 0.5g pill of MDMA in a small plastic bag was removed from his wallet.

Caulton is a current minister of the Uniting Church, with parish and presbytery responsibilities in Sydney and the ACT, and also works as a pastor chaplain with Canberra hospital.

Hee Hee. I don't know if you esteemed pagans know about the particular sect of Christianity know as the Southern Babtists, but I was raised as one. It is a very conservative sect of Christianity very popular in the southeastern corner of the United States.

Believe me. They take the "Fun" right out of fundamentalism.

Anyways, I went to a Southern Babtist sponsered high school. Imagine my surprise when I was in college, at a club called "Confettis", and I saw my high school history teacher partying and jumping into a cage and dancing with a couple of the club girls.

I guess the Southern Babtist high school thing was just a job to him.

It seems that Stan has a wee bit of trouble grasping the gist of the Prattle. I'm not terribly surprised, as he also claims to be an ex-Babtist. A quite amusing spelling mistake.

The Prattle is an equal opportunity reporter of stupid behaviour of all religions. But then having displayed a supreme lack of understanding of irony by also claiming to both be a revolutionary and a Bush voter, I wouldn't expect him to grasp the concept of the Pagan Prattle.

Ach, don't be too hard on the wee boy. His comments elsewhere on the Prattle show promise.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
