Video/photo of Fr. Mel Taylor Confrontation
July 12, 2012
This still frame, from a video taken with a cell phone camera on June 3, 2012, shows a man (at right) using a microphone to address the congregation at Father Mel Taylor's last mass [ View ] in the Bahamas.
The video was shot at Sacred Heart Church on Shirley Street in Nassau, Bahamas on June 3, 2012, at the 8:30 a.m. mass.
According to the man, Fr. Mel Taylor propositioned him on numerous occasions over the course of several months.
The two men (in the brown shirts) were coming to escort the man out of the church. Between the two men is a woman who was reading announcements after communion.
Three weeks after Father Mel Taylor left the Bahamas, Archbishop Patrick Pinder wrote that he, "knows of no one in the local Catholic ministry against whom any allegations of sexual abuse exist." [ View ]
