Never seems to end does it? Should we blame the Jews or fix the problem?

A former Denver school teacher and Episcopal priest accused of sexually assaulting at least two boys in his Denver home was sentenced Thursday morning to 24 years in prison. Donald Shissler, 68, pleaded guilty to the charges in August as part of a plea bargain. He was originally charged with two counts of sexual assault on a child, two counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, one count of sexual assault on a child -- pattern of abuse, and one count of sexual exploitation of children. Based upon evidence found in his home earlier this summer, there may be as many as 20 additional victims, detectives said. Police said they seized hundreds of pornographic pictures and videos from Shissler's house when he was arrested. Rappaport concluded in her sentencing remarks that Shissler is a sexual predator who clearly committed crimes against young boys for almost 18 years, including sexually assaulting a boy he adopted. Prosecutor Kerri Lombari called Shissler's case "the most disturbing case I have ever worked as a prosecutor."

A Baptist pastor whose wife runs a day care center
in their home was charged Friday with molesting a girl.
The Rev. Charles Moore was charged by St. Clair County prosecutors
with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He was arrested
Wednesday at his residence. Moore is pastor of United Faith Baptist
Church at 1525 Cleveland Ave. in East St. Louis.
He was an associate pastor at other churches before he got his own
church, said some residents who know Moore.
The Rev. Charles Moore, minister charged with aggravated criminal
sexual abuse of a girl who was 8 in the summer of 2009.-
Moore, 57, of 1640 N. 43rd St., was in the East St. Louis city jail
Friday afternoon awaiting transfer to the St. Clair County Jail,
Detective Michael Floore said. Moore's bail was set at $250,000.
The girl was 8 when she was molested in the summer of 2009, charges
state. Police allege Moore gained access to the girl through family
connections and not the church.
Floore, the lead investigator on the case, said the girl's parents
reported the incident to the police.
The girl's father said she is now 9 and appears to be OK. Relatives
are watching her for signs of trauma.
The father, who is not being identified to protect the identity of
the child, said he was devastated when he learned what happened to
his daughter by a man who is a pastor, charged with saving souls and
teaching wayward individuals what it takes to please the higher
The disturbing news made "me immediately angry."
"He's a pastor. Why? How could he do this to me? Evidently, he was
faking," the father said.
Moore's wife operates Moore's Kinder Care in their home on North 43rd
Street and the victim's father, like police, wonder if there are
other victims.
"If there are, I hope they will call the police and report it," the
victim's father said.
In this case, the victim's mother saw some things about her daughter
that didn't appear right. so she began asking questions of the girl
"and it came out," her father said.
The victim was at the suspect's residence visiting other relatives
when the alleged abuse occurred, the father said.
The father said the whole situation "is kind of hard for me. I had
started going to church. After all of this, I completely stopped.
Where does it end. This man is supposed to be a man of God. Where
does it end?" the father said.
His message to parents is: "Listen to your children and believe them.
And, if anything comes about that needs to be addressed, address it.
Make sure it's addressed in the proper way and not overlooked.
Children are innocent.
"I am just happy that justice is going to be served for my daughter
and our family," he said.

The former pastor of Lexington's Mary Queen of the Holy Rosary parish entered an Alford plea to amended charges in a sexual abuse case and will be sentenced in May, according to Franklin County Commonwealth's Attorney Larry Cleveland.
The Rev. Joseph Muench entered the plea Thursday in Franklin Circuit Court to amended charges of first-degree unlawful imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit sexual abuse in the first degree, Cleveland said Sunday night. An Alford plea is not an admission of guilt, but it acknowledges there is enough evidence for a conviction.
In July, Muench was suspended from ministerial duties after an internal investigation by the Diocese of Lexington, prompted by a letter from a Louisville attorney representing three men who made allegations against Muench. The diocese forwarded its findings in a letter to the Franklin County
According to statements by the diocese, the case concerns incidents alleged to have occurred in the 1980s while Muench was associate pastor of Good Shepherd parish in Frankfort. Muench was associate pastor there from 1984 to 1986, when the parish was part of the Diocese of Covington.
According to The State Journal of Frankfort, Muench originally faced two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

The Catholic Church is in a real crisis. Vocations are down and this will help to bring them further down. What the church has done by hiring high priced lawyers to attack the victims of the abuse - instead of morally, ethically, religiously and decently forcing the priests in concern to deal with their perversion in the same manner that any truly religious priest would council a parishioner to do - is unconscionable.

that sunuvabitch was my priest. i was an acolyte when he was ordained, he was my youth group leader, he hung with kids all the time and took us around in a 1930s mg convertible. on the surface he was exactly who parents wanted to, and did, leave their kids with. myyounger brother spent a lot of time there. the guy had piranhas in his office that he probably used to scare the kids quiet. two of his adopted sons,among his victims, have been imprisoned for child molesting, i believe one in florida. i'd love to find out where the bastard lives, and go visit him and show him what he can do with a candlestick.
