When life imitates George Carlin*: Fake priest arrested for baptizing real baby

The Portuguese are very particular about who may or may not splash water on infants. An unidentified 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of impersonating a priest in a small town in northern Portugal.

“When the man said ‘in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit’ police came in and grabbed him,” said a member of the church.

Shouldn’t the “move-in” phrase have been “I renounce thee Satan“? Have the cops no sense of theater or irony?

*Carlin’s line was something like, “Off-duty cop arrests on-duty robber.”

  1. I actually had a similar incident. 2 of my kids had water splashed by a fake priest (ends up he was gay as well) and he was fined 5000 euro and paid my family 5000 more in damages.

  2. A gay priest? Whoever heard of such a thing. Someone tell Collateral Damage Sr. never go to Portugal. He baptized Staff Sergeant Big Brother Collateral Damage with tap water. Wonder what the statute of limitations is on this?
