Priest pulls musket on kid

Little Ferry, New Jersey ...A New Jersey priest allegedly pointed a functioning musket at a young boy inside the church's rectory and indicated he would fire, an incident that may have been spurred by a football rivalry.
The Rev. Kevin Carter, 54, was free Saturday after posting $15,000 cash bail, a day after Bergen County prosecutors announced he was charged with child endangerment and aggravated assault by pointing a firearm.
Carter asked an 8-year-old boy who had arrived for a service with his family to step into one of the rectory's rooms and stand against a wall, prosecutors said. When the boy did, the priest allegedly pointed the unloaded but fully functioning musket at him.
Carter, a New York Giants fan, and the boy, who roots for the Dallas Cowboys, were talking about football shortly before the incident occurred.
The teams were scheduled to play that night, so it's not clear whether the incident was possibly a joke that went to far.
A parishioner reported the incident to the Archdiocese of Newark late last month, and officials there soon notified the prosecutor's office.
Carter has been assigned to st. Margaret's since February 2013. He has worked at five churches in New Jersey since 1987.

So am I the only one that thinks this is funny and sad at the same time..?? The priest should be fired..even if it was a joke that got out of hand..you don't point a gun at a kid..period..he's 8 years old for Goddess sake..Your a 54 year old man...you're a priest..don't you have a brain ? What a fucking idiot..and to show that the Goddess was paying attention that day at your rectory... the Cowboys beat the Giants that night. So fuuuuuuuuuck you.
