Lives up to his name

The so-called “Star Wars Priest” offers wonderful stories, from his pastoral ministry to his love of The Galaxy Far, Far Away. I love listening to his podcasts on a regular basis, and I know my patreon support is going to a great cause.

Crook

Always begging for money and then buying expensive Lego sets, brand new video games, new cell phones, computers, etc. In my opinion, he’s of no real service to the world, despite his vows.
