NS Bishop Resigns Over Child Porn

Nice. A priest who helped victims of child sexual abuse get a $15 million settlement is now charged with...guess... Come on, I'll give you sixteen guesses and the first fifteen don't count. That's right - possession of child pornography.

And then there's the follow up where he runs away! Surprise, surprise. My bet is that he went off somewhere to kill himself. We'll see. I'd like to think this is all a misunderstanding, but my "priests enjoy sexual relations with young kids" side of me is pretty...well, I'll just say "not optimistic".

I love the part in the article where the archbishop of Halifax says:
"It's devastating for me, it's devastating for him, and it's devastating for the whole church, whether it's in Antigonish or Halifax or the rest of Canada,"
Not one mention of the kids. Pretty telling, as always. It's about the image of the church, not about the horrible abuse of children that those pictures/movies/whatever represent.

Isn't religion wonderful?
