Brian Guarino said he was a 10-year-old altar boy at his Roman Catholic Church when the priest took him to dinner after a Mass, fed him a little scotch, drove him to a wooded spot at a Westmoreland County seminary and forced him to have oral sex.

The priest forced him into sex almost weekly for about two years in the woods behind the Greensburg church and in the sacristy, sometimes keeping him after class at the diocese's private school, Guarino said.

The clergyman told him, "This is what God wants," said Guarino, now 42, and he said he believed him. "When I was little, I saw the priest as God on Earth," Guarino said.
