    An Irishman named Diarmuid Martin says the Catholic Church in Ireland has reached a breaking point, a crisis that he says results from the sexual abuse of children by priests and the cover-up by the Church. Martin has provided tens of thousands of pages of evidence against specific priests, and his words and actions carry extraordinary weight. That's because Diarmuid Martin is the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin. Bob Simon reports.

    NEW DELHI: A city court caused a stir on Friday when it asked legislators to consider castration as an alternative punishment for child abusers. "Castration is the most befitting sentence which can be imposed on any pedophile or serial offender but the hands of this court are tied as the statute does not provide for it... Indian legislators are yet to explore this as an alternative to conventional sentencing," observed additional sessions judge Kamini Lau. ASJ Lau sentenced a man to imprisonment for his "entire life" for raping his six-year-old niece and directed the prison authorities not to give him...

    BELLEFONTE, Pa. – The judge overseeing the child sex abuse case of Jerry Sandusky said the former Penn State assistant coach can see most of his grandchildren while he awaits trial. The judge ruled Monday that Sandusky can also use a jury chosen from the State College area to hear his case. Sandusky had sought eased bail restrictions that would allow him access to his grandchildren. In his ruling, the judge said Sandusky can see the children under their parents' supervision, except for three grandchildren who are the subject of custody litigation. Prosecutors had

    BELLEFONTE – Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky lashed out Friday at former friends and neighbors whose complaints prompted prosecutors this week to seek his confinement inside his State College house. Sandusky's remarks to reporters came moments after a court heard testimony that several people had expressed concern over his frequent presence on his back deck, yards from a neighboring elementary school. "All of a sudden these people turn on me when they've been in my home with their kids, they've attended birthday parties here for my grandchildren, they've been on that deck and in that yard," he...

    Jerry Sandusky, accused of child sex abuse, will be in court soon asking a judge to modify the terms of his bail so he can see his grandchildren. Sandusky, 68, was charged in November with abusing 10 boys over 15 years, many of whom he met through his charity, The Second Mile. As part of a bail agreement that keeps him out of jail but on house arrest, Sandusky is not to have any contact with kids, including his grandchildren. His attorney, Joe Amendola, has said that family members are among those that brought accusations against the former Penn State...

    “Whatever the details of the investigation are, this much is clear to me: There was a villain in this tragedy. It lies in the investigation, not in Joe Paterno’s response to it,” Knight said, prompting a prolonged standing ovation from the crowd in the Bryce Jordan Center on the Penn State campus. Despite Paterno’s actions, “he was excoriated by the media and fired over the telephone by his university. Yet in all his subsequent appearances in the press, on TV, interacting with students, conversing with hospital personnel, giving interviews, he never complained, he never lashed out.

    Joe Paterno, who died Sunday morning at age 85, will go down as a martyr. For what, it’s not clear. Not at this moment, anyway. It likely will take the sands of time and the sifting of those fine granules through the life and complex era of a dignified man to let us know what the final chiseled decision will be. Does the fact that Pater-no won more Division I college football games than anyone (409), had a high graduation rate, loved his family, gave huge sums to the Penn State library and stayed in a modest house in one...

    Introduction I was elected to the Penn State Board of Trustees more than two decades ago, and served on it as an alumni Trustee for twelve years — from 1988 to 2000. I came onto the Board thinking that it was a deliberative body such as one reads about in civics books. It is not. It took me years to understand what was really going on. In what follows, I hope to shed some light on the inner workings of the Board, as well as to explain both why the Board remains so secretive, and why it has offered so...

    PITTSBURGH -- Penn State University president Rodney Erickson faces a crowd of alumni Wednesday in Pittsburgh, some of whom aren't happy about the way the school handled the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, the firing of football coach Joe Paterno and a lack of transparency in dealing with the case. Erickson is attempting to repair the school's image with alumni, faculty, staff and students, more than two months since Sandusky was arrested. Some alumni have criticized the school saying it failed to conduct a complete investigation before firing Paterno and ousting Erickson's predecessor, Graham Spanier, while decrying the school's...

    The National Confederation of Disabled People called the action "incomprehensible," and said pedophiles are now awarded a higher government disability pay than some people who have received organ transplants. The Labor Ministry said categories added to the expanded list - that also includes pyromaniacs, compulsive gamblers, fetishists and sadomasochists - were included for purposes of medical assessment and used as a gauge for allocating financial assistance. But NCDP leader Yiannis Vardakastanis, who is blind, warned the new list could create new difficulties for disabled Greeks who are already facing benefit cuts due to the country's financial crisis.

    Jerry Sandusky's book, 'Touched,' helped police investigation into alleged sex crimesBy SARA GANIM, The Patriot-News Published: Sunday, January 08, 2012, 12:01 AM The investigation of Jerry Sandusky took three years. And it took Sandusky himself — through the pages of his autobiography, “Touched” — to help police find Victims 3, 4, 5 and 7. At the end of 2009, police had spent almost a year trying to corroborate claims by a single boy — a 17-year-old Clinton County teen later known as Victim 1 — who had alleged years of sexual abuse by Penn State’s legendary defensive coach. Only one...

    January 4, 2012 ( - The anger and disgust that most of us experienced when we learned of the allegations of sexual abuse of boys in the sports programs at Penn State and Syracuse University suggest that our cultural norms about the sexual abuse of minors are intact. Yet it was only a decade ago that a parallel movement had begun on some college campuses to redefine pedophilia as the more innocuous “intergenerational sexual intimacy.” The publication of Harmful to Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children from Sex promised readers a “radical, refreshing, and long overdue reassessment of how we...

John Bradford, the psychiatrist who examined Bishop Lahey, described him Dec. 19, the first day of the hearing, as a homosexual with an addiction to Internet pornography. The bishop also entertains sadomasochistic fantasies, but indicated during questioning that he has never acted on those fantasies, Bradford said at the hearing. Bradford said that in a sexual history inventory,...

The Legion ordained 49 new priests this week in Rome, and many Legionaries and their families attended the pope's general audience inside the Vatican. In remarks at the end of the audience, Benedict said he was praying that God would support the new Legion priests "so that you can carry out with joy and loyalty your mission." Benedict named an envoy to take over the Legion last year after the...

Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant coach who has been accused of over 50 counts of sexual assault against young boys, waived his preliminary hearing this morning. His attorney, Joseph Amendola, then addressed the media in an impassioned — if horribly misguided — manner. Amendola announced that anyone who believes that Sandusky is a child molester should call “1-800-REALITY.” The folks at Deadspin did, and this is what they discovered:

They can even pick up the cash by NOT attending the sessions — if they show they were willing to go but there were no spaces available.

    I have posted several articles on the very fast moving agenda in our schools that will cause terrible harm to our children. The homosexual agenda could destroy the moral fabric of our country as they target children, since that is where our future lies. Have you checked your local school's curriculum and textbooks? California's news law and our own government's initiative is on the move to indoctrinate our children into the homosexual agenda. Recent ad concerning the Canadian mandate which promotes the homosexual agenda in the Canadian school system, which the US is headed towards. Related: Rescue Your Child...

    The allegations towards accused Penn State pedophile Jerry Sandusky continue with his grandson now coming forward with claims of sexual abuse. A complaint was filed against the former assistant coach by the wife of one of his adopted sons, Matt Sandusky with Pennsylvania's Children's and Youth Services, his lawyer told ABC News. “The allegations are ridiculous and unfounded. Jerry has absolutely denied any inappropriate contact with his grand kids.” Sandusky's attorney Joseph Amendola said. Sandusky's daughter-in-law filed for a restraining order after his November 5 arrest to prevent her children from sleeping over.

    Two years ago, Thom Hunter, a volunteer coach at Central Mountain High School in Mill Hall, Pa., saw something special in a 15-year-old boy at the school: a remarkable natural running ability. “There’s not anyone tougher than him when he runs,” Hunter said of the teenager. “You see other people start out too hard like he does, and they just collapse. It’s amazing to watch him just push through it.” In Hunter, it seems, the young high school runner saw something that felt just as rare: a coach he could trust, an adult male who would neither abandon nor harm...

    An Arizona man claims he was sexually abused 30 years ago by a Penn State professor — and the university refused to investigate his claims. Paul McLaughlin, now of Phoenix, says the abuse began when he was just 11 and lasted from 1977-81, with an education professor and two other predators targeting him. The victim told ABC News that he made audiotapes in 2001 of conversations where Prof. Jack Neisworth admitted performing oral sex on him. “Although I had clear evidence of abuse by this professor, the university refused to act,” charged McLaughlin. “Last week’s arrest of Penn State coach...

    The vast majority of Americans are outraged at the recent accusations of child rape by a former member of the football coaching staff at Penn State University and the seeming cover-up by the university’s president and legendary head football coach. At the same time, a small, radical organization, B4U-ACT, is lobbying under the radar to convince the American Psychiatric Association (APA) - publisher of the bible for identifying abnormal behaviors, the Diagnostic&StatisticalManualofMental Disorders (DSM) -to declare that pedophilia should not be included in the list of abnormal behaviors. Members of the APA need to listen to the public outcry and...
  • For The Record, Lolita Was Not Sexually Precocious — She Was Raped

    When I first encountered the literary classic Lolita, I was the same age as the infamous female character. I was 15 and had heard about a book in which a grown man carries on a sexual relationship with a much younger girl. Naturally, I quickly sought out the book and devoured the entire contents on my bedroom floor, parsing through Humbert Humbert‘s French and his erotic fascination for his stepdaughter, the light of his life, the fire of his loins — Dolores Haze. I remember being in the ninth grade and turning over the cover that presented a coy pair...
