What was that the Pope was saying yesterday about the threat to the family? I believe he hinted that it was "teh gay marriage" that was one of the biggest threats to the future of humanity. (Then there was the Catholic cardinal in Chicago comparing a gay Pride parade to the KKK.) In fact, it seems a more quantifiable threat to humanity's future, to its children, is coming from the Catholic Church itself. From the Daily Mail:
A Catholic Church child safety co-ordinator who was in charge of investigating sexual abuse allegations was jailed for 12 months today for internet peadophile offences....The Daily Mail reports that at the time of his arrest the perv was "leading an investigation into a historic sex abuse allegation."
He was arrested after uploading images of pre-pubescent boys on to the Ning social networking website.
Police officers who traced him to his home in Plymouth, Devon, found more than 4,000 child porn images, mainly of boys aged 10 to 12, on his church-supplied computer and a memory stick when they raided the house in Penrose Road....
[T]here were 120 at Level Four, which includes scenes of child rape, and 12 at Level Five, which can include scenes of torture and sadism.
Wouldn't it be neat if the Catholic Church hated pedophilia as much as it hates the rest of us?
