Snip:


A Roman Catholic bishop has been found guilty of importing child pornography in a case that has sent shockwaves through Canada and the Church.

Bishop Raymond Lahey was stopped at Ottawa Airport after border guards found 588 images and dozens of videos of naked boys as young as eight on his computer and phone.

He was also carrying a bag of personal sex toys. He was found guilty on the charge today.

It is extremely rare for a bishop to be found guilty of a criminal charge. The case will also likely act as a test of the Vatican's new strict sex abuse laws, which it approved last year.
The bishop’s crimes are especially shocking for Canadians because Lahey was the public face of an historic apology and $15million (£8million) settlement for victims of sexual molestation by a priest in his diocese

The article also reports that the Pope once again intervened in the sex abuse case settlement.

It is unacceptable that the Pope can keep intervening in these cases, and keep them out of the courts.

I'm glad to see this case went all the way to trial, and this Bishop at least is having to face justice for his heinous acts.

There's just too many instances of this happening inside the Catholic Church to regard is as anything but a child sex cult. These are not isolated events. They are widespread... and were only talking about the ones that are getting caught, which I would imagine is only the tip of the iceberg.

I am afraid this is what happens when a religion practices Celibacy, and prevents their Priests from marrying. The Catholic faith has had this stain for many years now.

I was thinking the same thing, so much touching going on it has to be a little boys club for men.

"Not only am I a member, I am also the bishop!"

All well, Jesus will save the little kids right!? I mean he is so protective and caring, he wouldn't let his kids be touched by agents of his faith. Blind faith and bending over, what do they expect...

Practicing celibacy might lead to hairy palms and poor vision but there's no way it leads to naked kiddy vacations with a case of dildos. That's a whole sickness unto itself celibate or not.

And the belief that sex with a woman is a bad thing. Woman as the reason evil entered the world. To be born of woman is somehow stained, making a virgin birth necessary.
The vagina is a scary, bad place...don't go there...Do Not Enter.

....pssssst....oh. but there's a loophole ....intercourse is banned, but sex with a little boy is not intercourse...
