This is why I never trust most religious people, especially devout Christians. In my 50 years of life, I have consistenly found Christians who are always talking about what great Christians they are, are more often than not, the most untrustworthy, amoral, and devious people.

As a devout Christian myself, believe me, it bothers me that my faith is seen as a joke or something to be scorned when things like this make headlines. It makes the rest of us look like fools. A good rule of thumb? If they have to broadcast what good Christians they are, they probably aren't.

This is tragic on many levels. This man is sick, and not probably not unlike "Taxpayer, from NY, NY". Btw "Taxpayer", your vitriol exposes your true character, not his.

hey should check those other Jesuit schools too... Ffld has a lot of programs in connection with places like Loyola, MD and others. They need to make sure this stuff was limited to just this sicko. If not, let the hammer of justice fall on all of these monsters.

While in Haiti, it was well-known that certain U.N. troops were sexually abusing young boys as well. The boys would congregate around those camps to earn their 'dollar'. My heart breaks for the children who are abused by those they are supposed to trust.

He was acused of doing it, he was not convicted. I would be questioning those haitain boys. Or do you think they could not lie.

Hey Bobcat -- It has nothing to do with the Bridgeport Diocese -- The Bridgeport Diocese happens to do a lot of good for the poor and needy - But I'm sure you also spread the good they do -- Bobcat, Let He Without Sin Cast The First Stone

Don't ask, don't tell concerns two consenting adults. Are you telling us that age does not matter in your neck of the woods?
