Priest Caught Soliciting in Public Restrooms Promoted to Head Catholic TV

NEW YORK ( - In 2007, New York priest Fr. Gary Mead was arrested in a gay sex sting along with 19 other men. Today Mead is the director of Instructional Television (ITV) for the archdiocese of New York, and sources confirm he owes his position to the vicar general, Msgr. Greg Mustaciuolo — in recent news for his alleged cover-up of Fr. Peter Miqueli's embezzlement of parish funds and gay-for-pay scandal.

ITV offices are on the grounds of St. Joseph's Seminary, in the Dunwoodie neighborhood of Yonkers, New York.

Fr. Gary Mead

2007 police records show Mead — who was working at St. Gregory Barbarigo parish in Garnerville at the time — was found performing lewd acts in a public restroom off Interstate 684, in well-heeled Westchester County — a well-known haunt for gay cruising — where he solicited sex from an undercover policeman and tried to fondle him. He was arrested and charged with loitering and forcible touching.

"Some think he should be placed in prison or hospital work," the source said, "not mingling with seminarians and Catholic school students."

So he can forcibly fondle the inmates & the sick? Surely there are some Bibles he can be put to copying in a monastery somewhere.

It just does not end, this scandal in the Church and upheld by those in positions of authority. But let a priest refuse communion to a lesbian Buddhist or a gay activist and he would be punished. Let a priest be holy and faithful and he will be assigned to the worst possible parish (which will bloom under his direction so he will have to be moved again).

There are some prelates who should be VERY fearful of their judgment...

Most of these prelates, I fear, do not fear the Judgement as they do not seem to believe in God. But in the great "springtime" of the Church none of that matters---as long as you worship the pope and hound traditional Catholics you are in good standing. What a diabolical joke the postconciliar church is. RC

Seems to be a requirement for promotion in Vatican 2.

We need more investigative reports like this. I wish Church Militant was active in writing about the Church here (Canada).
