Yes, Obama family values at work in the church.

This black pastor even had girls undress and be photed with the proud pastor! BTW on an unrelated note, they spend about 26K per student in Newark so kids can graduate from high school. It's not working and won't with Obama values.

If the rapist would have been a famous hollywood director this probably wouldn’t even make the news.

Ought to change his name to Roman Polanski. There are at least two maniples of European countries that would fall all over themselves to give him asylum.

Back in 1987 a local priest boinked a friend of mine who went for counseling. After a messy affair she killed herself.

This is an example of Reagan family values at work in the church.

If you can be an idiot so can I.

The difference is this pedophile’s church didn’t cover for him by reassigning him to another parish, and then trying to make it go away by saying “it happened so long ago, what does it matter”.

No, YOU are the “idiot”.

To make matters worse you denigrate Ronald Reagan.

THESE are the VALUES in Newark, Camden, Trenton and other arm pits. Heck, a few years ago, I believe it was Trenton, a black male in his 20’s openly RAPED a female DOG in broad daylight. A couple of black girls witnessed it but were too afraid to tell the police about it because of retaliation. THIS is the CULTURE in those areas.

It's so typical of the disturbed to try and bring someone else down, to make themselves feel better about their “values”.

You ought to know better than that but ...

Sure, because you’re attempting to white-wash the cover-ups by much of the leadership of the Catholic Church. Or do you condone shuffling pedophile priests off to other parishes in an attempt to make the crime go away?

It’s terrible when a supposed man of God commits such a horrendous offense as raping a child; it should be brought to light immediately and the rapist should be tried immediately in Court and if found guilty sent to prison (or worse). You have a problem with that?

The facts are not in your favor regarding reassignment of sexually predatory priests. And there are dozens - perhaps hundreds - more cases where the Church leadership chose to simply sweep the problem aside by reassigning the priest rather than turning the sex offender over to the authorities.

This is not a condemnation of the Catholic Church; it is a condemnation of the men in power inside the Church who covered up these horrific acts.

I see. Then I assume you condone covering up sexual rape of children, if it’s done by priests. Good to know where you stand - for sexual predation of children by and subsequent institutional protection of “men of God”.

I’m somewhat curious as to why the story had a picture of the male pastor but not the female congregant. Aren’t both accused of essentially the same crime? Weren’t both arrested?

Please cogitate on the inherent assumption in this brief statement you just made. I'd also suggest reading my tagline. Invective and insults are the domain of the liberal mind.

The fact remains: the Catholic Church has hidden sexual predation by its priests by moving the priests to new parishes. That may offend you, but it's the truth. It's not bashing, it's not attacking - it's the truth.

And it's the big difference in this rapist's case versus many child-raping priests in the Catholic Church: this freak has been reported, arrested, and will be punished as compared to those child-raping priests who were quietly shuffled off to another location...

THe kids are minors. They cannot give consent as a minor.

I suppose it's his partner in crime.

This is terrible beyond words. The message it sends about authority figures and clergy will keep kids away from Christ. They'll think they're just a bunch of child molesters. They need to really throw the book at these monsters.
