Catholic Priest Quits After Getting Woman Pregnant

Contrary to what many might say of this man, I have a deep respect for his ability to step up and say “I did this and I can no longer lead you spiritually.”

I believe most men in his shoes would have insisted on an abortion and possibly had the woman done away with if she insisted on keeping the baby so they could keep living a lie and pretending to be who they are not in front of an adoring crowd.

This, indeed, is a man with a deep love of God and a conscience. May God help him to pick himself up and be a good husband and father.

Father Daniel McFalls is seen giving communion at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Stockton, Calif. McFalls has decided to give it up, however, to be a different kind of father.

A Catholic priest in California is about to be another kind of father — after he unleashed his unholy spirit and begot a child.

Father Daniel McFalls quit his job at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Stockton after he was led into temptation and broke his vow of celibacy.

The popular preacher stunned his congregation by revealing in a letter that he will be swapping cassocks and communion cups for sleepless nights and dirty diapers.

Father Dean has asked the congregation of St. Mary's for forgiveness — though he is leaving in disgrace.

Father Dean has asked the congregation of St. Mary’s for forgiveness — though he is leaving in disgrace.

“A child will soon be born, and I am the baby’s father,” he wrote.

“I assume full responsibility for my actions and will do all that I can so that my child receives the care and love that he deserves,” he added.

McFalls, who also goes by the name of Dean, told Fox40 he was “upset” about leaving the church.

The priest broke it to his congregation that he is leaving to take full responsibility for his actions.

The priest broke it to his congregation that he is leaving to take full responsibility for his actions.

But he asked for parishioners’ forgiveness, adding that the promise to God of not having sex was a concept he had battled with for years.

“I was gonna battle it until the day I die, but something came about, which is called life,” McFalls said.

'A child will soon be born, and I am the baby's father,' Father Daniel McFalls said.

‘A child will soon be born, and I am the baby’s father,’ Father Daniel McFalls said.

Not all of the church-goers were forgiving, though, with one calling him “flirty” and claiming he “lusted” after her daughters.

“He’s just lustful, he didn’t say he was in love or marry the girl, no,” said Diana Garcia.

“It’s not about being a sinner, it’s about playing with God. He made a vow. This is a priest we’re talking about,” she added.

McFalls has been given an indefinite leave of absence by Bishop Stephen E. Blaire. It’s unclear whether he will remain a priest.

“It is a very, very sad thing to happen. It is the same as if a married man is unfaithful to his wife,” said Jack Valero, spokesman for Catholic Voices.

“He made a commitment and he did not stick to it. It undermines priests commitment to chastity,” he added.
