    so since he has not been convicted it is perfectly ok for him to teach children. the strange thing is the judge let him out on bail to go to another state for a job.

    well, he is a priest, how can you not trust a priest?

    girl might be an orphan, that could explain why the priest still lives.

    Well an accusation does not mean he's guilty.

    Although I'd want to see the verdict before hiring him.

    The title of this thread is misleading. Although the church behaved irresponsibly by not doing a background check on this guy that is completely different than a church knowingly hiring an accused child molester.

    The church should temporarily terminate this guy's employment pending the outcome of the trial but that is no reason to create threads based on false premises.

    It's his MO, we all know that. Nobody who isn't similarly adled by hatred of religion takes his threads seriously.

    How would a school handle this sort of case? I think the church should do the same.

    I don't hate religion I just tend to point out stupidity and hatred done in the name of religin. Be a good person and don't throw your failth around and I am fine. I don't hate religin I find it entertaining or horrified because of its followers.

    I agree, it's like they added a new commandment for it.

    I was listening to the anti-christ today on HBO to go and one of his guests was salman rushdie. I'm going to paraphrase what he said cause I'm too lazy to google and see if its online yet. Anyway, he said every country has a group of religious people whose fairly new trope is to claim persecution while they are being persecuted. To cry that their rights are being taken away when its really their own that are taking away the rights of others. We see it here on PRSI when someone claims that people aren't being tolerant of Christians by pointing out that some Christians are tolerant. I think I'm posting this in the wrong thread....

    all the articles I have read the pastor never removed him from teaching children. in fact he broke the terms of his bond and is now back in jail. so if the pastor looked into after it was found out he would have had to do somethign as the guy was breaking the court order as is.

    I served on a grand jury last year. Children have their own court, so it was 100% child abuse cases, one after the other for two weeks. And it wasn't enough to read or even hear the evidence. Every child had to come into the room full of strangers and recite what was done to them. I was ready to break some people.
