Two Catholic priests were busted in Miami Beach after bystanders spotted them giving each other blowies in their in broad daylight and called 911.
39-year-old Diego Berrio and 30-year-old Edwin GiraldoCortez were visiting Miami from Chicago, where they both work at Mission San Juan Diego Parish in Arlington Heights.
Police got a 911 call about a lewd and lascivious incident taking place in the 1300 block of Ocean Drive.
When officers arrived, the police report states, the two were performing sex acts on each other “in full view of the public passing by on Ocean Drive and the sidewalk.”
It was 3:20 in the afternoon.
The priests were so into what they were doing that they didn’t even notice police standing outside the vehicle, which was parked across the street from a busy playground, until an officer tapped on the window to get their attention.
“There’s a time and a place for everything,” Miami Beach Police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez says, “and this certainly was not the time and place.”
Both priests were arrested and charged with Lewd and Lascivious Behavior. GiraldoCortez was also charged with Indecent Exposure.
After the story broke, the Archdiocese of Chicago’s office released a statement saying it was taking the matter “very seriously”.
“It is our responsibility to ensure those who serve our people are fit for ministry,” the statement read.
It went on to say:
Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, archbishop of Chicago, has removed Fr. Berrio from ministry and withdrawn his faculties to minister in the Archdiocese of Chicago, effective immediately. The archdiocese will appoint an administrator for the Misión San Juan Diego as soon as possible.
“Archdiocese representatives have been in contact with Fr. Cortes’ home diocese of Soacha, Colombia and informed them that Fr. Cortes will not be granted additional faculties to minister in the Archdiocese of Chicago.
Both priests have since bonded out of jail. Neither has issued any comment.

I think the bigger story was that they were both consenting adults.
Just another nail in the coffin of priestly celibacy in the Catholic Church. Until and unless the church deals with this impossible requirement, especially in our increasingly liberated world, by allowing priests to marry adults of the same or opposite sex, and to allow single clergy to have sexual relations with consenting adults, it’s going to keep happening.
Cardinal Cupich, who is actually pretty liberal as Catholic bishops go, should thank his lucky stars that these were two horny and desperate adult priests, and that one of them wasn’t an underage teen or child.
If these two sex crazed priests cannot and will not control their carnal desires and instead did something that violated their sacred vows in such a shameful way, they should not be priests at all. If they want to have sex, they should become a layman or a deacon if they wish to remain in the Church.
Girl, I knew you were going to chime in at some point. Why do you go have a chat with all the gay priests who evidently cannot “control their carnal desires and instead [do] something that violate[s] their sacred vows.” You’ll need a number of large stadiums and years on end if they start sharing the “carnal” acts they’ve been up to.
Most of us want to have good income but dont know how to do that on Internet there are a lot of methods to earn huge sum, but whenever Buddies try that they get trapped in a scam/fraud so I thought to share with you a genuine and guaranteed method for free to earn huge sum of money at home anyone of you interested should visit the page. I am more than sure that you will get best result.
Best Of Luck for new Initiative!
I hope they got in some serious deep throating.
Even though it was in public I’m celebrating the fact that they were both grown men and not molesting young boys. Maybe they should just move in together so they don’t have to worry about where they will have sex?
Sorry life the person that called 911 must have.
But the children! The children!
Oh. No children involved.
nothing to see here.
They were across the street from a playground, for God’s sake. (Pun fully intended.) Who doesn’t love some good head, but find a secluded spot or, God forbid, a room! (Yeah, that one, too. lol)
They couldn’t find a more secluded location and decided a busy street across the street from a busy playground was the ideal spot?
They could have gone to Club Aqua Miami, split the entrance fee, had a good time, and avoided the arrest and public humiliation. Or maybe they wanted that as part of the penance.
I feel so bad for these guys…………maybe they hadn’t had a contact in a long time and they just could not have waited……………….could happen……………that they couldn’t rush to the pri
The priests who have consensual sex (in the wrong place, of course) with one another get punished. The ones who molest children? Shuffled around to places where nobody knows what they did.
Just wish they had had the goocd sense to get a room.
Let them go…
Well, all I can say is at least they were doing each other and they are consenting adults. Glad to see they weren’t molesting children or being accused of that. What two consenting adults do between themselves and no one else, is no one else’s businesses but their own. Grant it they could have been a little more conspicuous and gotten a room or gone back to the Parish they were from and done it there. Then they could have done whatever. Oh well, maybe next time they’ll get it right. I’m not condemning them either so don’t think I’m doing that.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
They were basically doing a public service announcement
“We’re all not pedopriests” :-p
How do you get a Nun pregnant?
Dress her like an Alter boy!!
Love this joke! Thanks for the laugh.
It just doesn’t matter if they were priests. They were in public and engaging in graphic sex near a place that children can be found. This is just wrong. I think they should have gotten a room and then let the sparks fly. I hate the fact that they’re being judged on the fact that they’re priests. Celibacy is ridiculous and those guys demonstrate the need for the RCC to change its antiquated canon law to update these issues. Priests should be allowed to marry, be gay, be straight. have sex, however children are off limits completely ! Ok, I’vew babbled long enough, have a good one peeps!
If you don’t like the thousand year Catholic Church tradition that priests should be celibate, you are welcome to join the Episcopal church or other denominations. However, you have no right whatever to demand that the Church change the law just because you don’t like it. Priests can be gay, the Church has made very clear, but a vow is a vow. If you can’t keep your vow to God, don’t be a priest.
