(Watch) Stephen Collins Plays Pedophile Priest Who Hears Confession at Gunpoint


Strange: Stephen Collins, now under investigation in real life for child molestation, plays a priest in this short film called “Penance” made this year. The priest is a pedophile who hears “confession” from one of his victims, now an adult. You can rent or buy the film on Vimeo for $1.99 or $4.99. The money goes to the James Storehouse Foundation. Director Jeff Wolfe appeared on the Today show this morning in a taped piece and said only he was “surprised” about the developments. If that’s true, “Penance” is one of the strangest coincidences ever. What are the odds that he could hire Collins to play this part, and that Collins may have committed similar crimes? Of course, Collins has already played a priest on “7th Heaven.” Very weird and sad…
