A German Catholic priest has admitted 280 counts of sexual abuse involving three boys over almost a decade, the BBC reported. About 2,800 pornographic images -- including several of his victims -- were found on the priest's computer.

Named only as Andreas L, the priest, 46, told a court in Braunschweig he did not think he was doing harm.

I want to see excommunication along with de-froking by the church - now.

And a long prison term.

I often think of the Lady of Fatima’s letter and the third secret, Satanic infiltration of the church.

...the priest, 46, told a court in Braunschweig he did not think he was doing harm.

...

"It was never my impression that the children did not consent," the priest was quoted as saying at the trial,

This worthless piece of human garbage does not think he did anything wrong.

Not if it is up to you, apparently.

Enjoy.

It happened a long time ago. Wait...

The first incident was with a nine-year old in 2004

This is obviously a Church matter that should never have been published. Let them do an internal investigation, send him to another parish, give him counseling and support and check back on him in a couple of decades to see if that worked. Remember the Church has Tradition on its side and we should let well enough alone.

Sure. A priest who can dangle their eternal destiny before them in blackmail and they're going to object/ not consent?

The kids were probably terrified.

Not as long as people like sex and all the funny feelings that go with it.

Wow, from the headline, I thought there were 280 kids abused... not three. Still, I sure hope he gets prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and that the diocese moves quickly to investigate any other possible fiends out there: They do tend to establish social contacts among themselves.

Further, I hope there’s proper investigation as to whether the diocese took all reasonable steps after the mother complained of an “improperly close relationship.” You can’t exactly fire a priest, just because someone is leery of him being a little friendly to a child. (And no, you can’t drive someone into lonely destitution on someone’s vibe). But you certainly can investigate.
