(Newser) – In scarcely more than a month, Alberto Cutié has gone from celebrity priest to sex scandal poster boy to Episcopalian—now he can add boring old married guy to his resume, reports the AP. The Miami priest who left the Catholic Church amid a racy photo scandal married his secret girlfriend of 2 years yesterday. A judge performed the ceremony. The Vatican has not removed Cutié from the Catholic priesthood, but he is not yet a full-fledged Episcopal priest.
