Peter Miqueli: ‘Toilet Slave’ Reverend Accused Of Stealing $1 Million From Churches To Fund Extreme Gay Sex And Drug Habits

Peter Miqueli accused of stealing for extreme gay sex and drug habits

A Bronx Reverend is being investigated for embezzling more than $1 million from two different churches in order to pay for drugs and a homosexual escort. Fifty-three-year-old Peter Miqueli has since stepped down from St. Frances de Chantal and is facing a lawsuit.

According to the Huffington Post, Peter Miqueli’s shocking actions are under scrutiny by the Archdiocese of New York, who are suing him for misappropriating church funds to pay for regular drug-fueled sexual escapades with a male prostitute, involving extreme practices of bondage and other sexual taboos.

The story of Peter Miqueli’s practices broke when the New York Post published portions of an email written by Tatyana Gudin, the ex-girlfriend of the Reverend’s “homosexual sex master” Keith Crist, and sent to Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

In the email, Gudin describes how Reverend Peter Miqueli would pay thousands of dollars for sex with Keith Crist, whose urine he would drink as part of their sexual escapades. Peter Miqueli was dubbed Crist’s “toilet slave.”

“Keith has been Father Miqueli’s gay, for-pay prostitute,” says the letter. “Keith Crist uses Father Miqueli as his toilet, and Father Miqueli drinks his p*** during their weekly, 3 day get-togethers when they take off to Father Miquelis house in Brick, NJ, far away from prying eyes.”

That house was purchased by Reverend Peter Miqueli using cash he embezzled in 2009, according to the lawsuit filed against him. The priest reportedly stole the money from collection plates, a parish thrift shop and a bank account the church set aside to purchase a new organ.

Peter Miqueli also used the money to pay for a multitude of both illegal and prescription drugs and props to make his sexual escapades even more extreme. The Reverend was accused of keeping a literal sex “dungeon” in his basement.

“They would party. There would be needles and syringes all over the house. There was equipment at the house — dildos, whips, chains and chaps. Keith used it. The priest also used it.”

Though Peter Miqueli stepped down as a religious leader, he claims to have every intention of clearing his good name and returning to the church. And while the email from Gudin may seem pretty damning for Peter Miqueli, initial investigations led by the Archdiocese of New York have failed to find any evidence linking the Reverend to criminal activity.

“To date we have found nothing to substantiate the allegations that have been raised, and in fact, with regard to the parish finances, we know that the allegation that Father Miqueli stole $1 million from each parish, as was alleged by the plantiffs’ attorney, is completely false,” said Joseph Zwilling, the director of communications.

But it appears the damage to Reverend Peter Miqueli’s reputation has already been done. An online petition has been started to “Remove Fr. Peter Miqueli as Pastor of St. Francis de Chantal.” More than 256 signatures have already come in. Strangely, the petition does not cite any of the sex or drug habits alleged by the priest’s ex-girlfriend as a reason for removal.

“Not only does [Reverend Peter Miqueli] do nothing himself, but he forces his work upon all of the employees,” says the petition. “He does this without any gratitude and even has the audacity to call himself the ‘king of St. Frances.'”

Do you think Peter Miqueli is guilty of stealing from churches to feed his sex and drug habits?

Earlier this month, the Inquisitr reported on a very similar story to that of Reverend Peter Miqueli. An elderly Catholic priest confessed to stealing $741,000 from his congregation over the course of 25 years. Read more here.
