A Benedictine monk who taught anthropology at Saint Vincent College apparently took lascivious photos of himself and sent them to students. His attorney has an immensely creative explanation for his behavior:
Father Gruber’s attorney, Sharon Smith, said the evidence at deposition “was taken completely out of context.” It was part of a “dialogue” between Father Gruber and anthropology students, she said. She declined to elaborate, but said sexuality is part of what anthropologists study.
No word on whether Father Gruber was teaching evolutionary psychology or the cultural history of sexuality, with a particular focus on the myriad ways in which celibacy/repression can lead to abuse.
