I hope all the local churches have taken a lesson from this creep and that they now perform background checks on their clergy, teachers and anyone else who has contact with their children. It blows my mind that all this pervert had to do was put on a brown robe, tie a rope around it and voila he was a monk.

Good thing this guy was not a catholic priest. Otherwise he would have been relocated to another church before he could have been arrested.

Ain't no God folks. The whole church thing is a scam. Religion is the opiate of the masses. This fellow again shows how gullible and silly the whole concept really is...

Just because you have a thought, does not mean it's a good idea. Go back to browsing your kiddie porn websites now. T*R&O^L%L

So how many more times are we going to get Catholic people molesting people? I bet the reported are far less than the actual violations that occur every day.
I'm not saying down the the Catholic people, but I wonder what makes most Catholic people have a sexual problem? They seem twisted to me when it comes to sex.
someone answer please! do it for Jesus.

This poor excuse for a human was sentenced to 6 years, only served 3 for good behavior (if there is such a thing in his case) and was sent out into the world again to impersonate a monk yet again. The church is unforgivable for their lack of research they did on his background. It's appalling to me that many church officials and members we on Falco's side. Disgusting. There is no rehabilitation for this monster. It's not possible. Lock him up with the general population in prison. He should get absolutely no special treatment. He has ruined so many lives and will no doubt continue if let free.
Best wishes to the families and friends affected by this monster and his horrific actions.

I know Falco. I spent time in jail with him. Yes indeedy, he was an odd duck, but oddly enough, seemed earnest in his religion. That said, it doesn't look like he is able (or willing) to control his bad behavior and, should the courts find him guilty, he will never be on the streets again.
That said, common perception is that sex offenders reoffend at a high rate. Check out the U. S. Justice Dept. statistics, easily available on the web. It is much lower than most violent crimes and far lower than burglary, arson, spousal abuse, drunk driving and more. Your basic, run of the mill, sex offender doesn't reoffend. Unfortunately society sees the picture painted by the few true demons,goes into hysterics about the lot, spending too much time, money and resources to 'control' those who won't reoffend while those who will not be controlled, and Falco might be one, reoffend anyway.

Earnest in his religion? How absurd. I don't know of any religion that condones child molestation. I do however know of many people who know a religion well enough to gain and then abuse access to a religious community to troll for victims whom they can sexually abuse.
