Hopefully there will be exile to Craggy Island and perhaps a reboot of a certain TV series.

It's too bad they caught her when they did. She was just about to win big and be able to pay it all back.

Well this sounds like a fairly straightforward gambling addiction. And did she keep wagering larger amounts of money hoping to win back enough to pay back the previous large amounts of money?

I went to catholic school. A nun told me I had the devil inside of me because I couldn't sit still, she said it to my mother.

Turns out I just had A.D.D.

She should claim that she took it to fund the choir.

Me too, but I'm old and there was no A.D.D. when I was a kid so I was just being "a jerk". At catholic high school, I really was a jerk, but, got a pretty good education out of it.

Everyone knows you have to use other people's money, or you can't keep that vow of poverty.

a member of the Catholic Church stealing money?!?!?  Such a thing is totally,,,,, believable.  i mean of course she did. it is what they do.

She is but a humble servant of God, in charge of the mortal souls of our children and preparing them in Good on Earth for the eternal afterlife in Heaven.

She needs to see Reverend Cleophus at the Triple Rock for some inspiration. Then, off to the Murphy and the Magic Tones concert at the Holiday Inn.

It's not so much an addiction as an overabundance of optimism.

I've heard of an inordinate number of stories about church treasury people using the coffers to gamble for themselves. It's almost become a stereotype. Do they think faith in god enhances their chances or something?

Officials said Kreuper "lulled St. James School and the administration into believing that the school's finances were being properly accounted for and its financial assets properly safeguarded, which, in turn, allowed defendant Kreuper to maintain her access and control of the school's finances and accounts and, thus, continue operating the fraudulent scheme."

Not exactly.  She didn't "lull" anyone.  She's the local superior of the religious house, which means her word is not only law but equivalent to religious instruction.  (I know she's the superior because she has control of the convent accounts.)  She would, by default, be trusted as a nun, even more so because she's the superior.  I don't think anyone would have at all even questioned whether she was worthy of trust.


The embezzlement was discovered after an internal investigation at the end of that year, but the church chose not to press criminal charges against the sisters.

She wouldn't have any money anyway.  She's under a vow of poverty, she can't own personal property.  The Order pays her way through life.  They wouldn't want to sue the order, because they'd be suing themselves as the parent of the shell corporation.  Better to just send her to prison in the Motherhouse and let them treat her like dirt until she dies.

And by the way, this sort of thing happens far more often than we hear about.  Usually it's quietly swept under the rug to avoid a scandal.  I think if an independent accounting firm looked at the accounts of most Catholic schools, parishes and dioceses without a religious bias to make them assume innocence in the face of evidence, they'd find all kinds of interesting expenditures.

COURT:  and now we will hear from the defense.

DEFENSE:  addiction, personal hardship overcome, contrition - so so sorry, Jesus, your grandmother, charity, took kids to ice cream as a special dispensation - they love her,  booga booga, MAGA.

No evidence, it was all mystery nun X, not sister GamblingForGod, they are just out to get her b/c they farked up.  Motion to exclude gambling b/c not relevant.

I can't really muster up any outrage. The less they have, the less they can pay off little boys to stay silent. That church is a huge legal tax-free syndicate. They teach forgiveness (for a price) but won't forgive one of their own because she broke rule number one - don't rip off the bosses.

You would think after losing the first $100,000 she would realize that god didn't want her to gamble.

Molest children and the church moves you to another parish to continue your molestation. Steal money, right to the police.

I have to admit they did accomplish one thing, they turned me into an atheist at a very early age. In second grade I had no idea what brainwashing was, but, I resented the fact that they were trying to control how I thought. Add in the fact that none of the supernatural stuff made a bit of sense and the rules were idiotic, like you were going to burn in Hell forever because you ate a hamburger on Friday. Add in the God who was suppose to be prefect, but, exhibited all kinds of human failings, like seemingly being pissed off all the time and ready to wipe out everybody, at the drop of a hat, etc.
