Catholic Priest Accused of Kidnapping, Domestic Battery of His Wife

Indianapolis Father Luke W. Reese, 49, is facing charges after allegedly assaulting his wife in September 2017, has reported.

Reese found out his wife was having an affair. She was in the backseat of a vehicle with the man when Reese arrived and told her to get out.

Reese then drove her around the city as he hit her and blasted heavy metal music. The two then went to the Holy Rosary Catholic Church of Indianapolis, where Reese made her kneel at the altar. Eventually Reese drove her home, ripped off her clothes, tore up her outfits “that he thought were slutty,” and forced her to marital intercourse. Shortly after the assault Reese took a leave of absence for a few months.

Reese is a former Anglican priest who belongs to the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter established to allow former Anglican priests to join the Church. He became the first married priest in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis when he was ordained in June 2016.

What's the argument against married priests, again?
Great job Vatican allowing anglicans married priest to join the church.

@aderito It would be more of the same of this!
Can you imagine if all priests were married ?
