Why is it that any other minority would be in the electric chair already yet the law is still playing around with this gringo?

But we are supposed to believe in equality and justice in our Judicial system.

Total bullshit. The man is a danger to children, WTF?

Didn't Woody Allen have an affair with his adopted teenage daughter and is now married to her? Why wouldn't he support Polanski, he's a sexual deviant too.

Have things really changed that much? Many people here in America are still strong in the feeling that tricking or drugging a young person for sex is completely unacceptable.

Sounds reasonable; eh?

Bankruptcy Filing Delays Delaware Church Sex Abuse Case
Monday, October 19, 2009

ANNAPOLIS, Maryland A sex abuse case against Delaware's Catholic Diocese of Wilmington and a former priest will be delayed after the church filed for federal bankruptcy protection on the eve of proceedings.

"..He added that the diocese hoped the bankruptcy filing "will enable us to fairly compensate all victims through a single process established by the Bankruptcy Court."

The bankruptcy filing lists the diocese's assets as being between $50 million and $100 million but said its estimated debt is between $100 million and $500 million. Lawsuit plaintiffs as well as banks and pensions were listed as creditors.

Monday's case would have been the first to come to trial under a Delaware law that created a two-year "lookback" window that allowed claims of abuse to be brought regardless of whether the statute of limitations had expired. More than 100 lawsuits were filed before the period ended this summer, with four being settled...."
.
.
And perhaps a bit more history...

http://www.counterpunch.org/sexabuse.html

"The Case of Father Jerry

In 1996, a senior official in the Catholic church confided to a friend of CounterPunch, the Catholic church in America had thus far paid out $500 million to settle priest abuse cases. On July 24, 1997, a Dallas jury imposed a $119.6 million in overall damages - the largest penalty ever levied on the Catholic Church - for what was described as "grossly negligent handling" of the sexual abuses perpetrated by one priest. If the Dallas verdict holds up on appeal, the National Catholic Reporter reckons the estimated amount of pay-outs related to clergy sex abuse will approach $1 billion.

Many of such cases never reach the court filing stage and of those that do, the vast majority never go to trial. Often the testimony of the victims is so powerful that Church officials move immediately to negotiations for a settlement. We've also been told that the go-ahead for pay-outs often amounting to millions of dollars comes from Rome...."
.
.
Looks like the head office also approves of payoffs.

So tell me. Which is worst...

Having consensual sex?

Or sex abuse of a minor or abuse of power, be it against a male or female?

Hollywood is despicable. They put lewdness and sex in almost everything they produce, and could not care less about how it affects children and teenagers. All those Hollywood scum care about is making money.

The homosexual community has way too much power and influence in the film, TV and "news" industries.

That is why their degenerate filth is being pumped into American homes 24/7.

It's called "recruiting."

It also explains why the Church was attacked vigorously during Holy Week immediately preceding Easter with an old story that suddenly and mysteriously grew new legs.

That is because Benedict XVI made the long overdue decision to reverse Vatican II permissiveness that allowed openly declared homosexuals to enter seminary and become priests.

And talk about IRONY: the very issue on which the Church is being raked over the coals is the DIRECT result of predatory homosexuals masquerading as priests in order to enjoy their filthy behavior at the expense of innocent CHILDREN. That's how these depraved q u e e r pedophiles get their kicks.

And NORMAL people are supposed to feel SORRY for these filthy degenerates?

PUHLEEZE!

And oh BTW it is because of their filthy and utterly reckless behavior in the San Francisco bath houses in the 1970's that incubated what started out as a very delicate, flimsy virus and incubated into the killer now known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.

It is well past time for the homosexual dregs who have arisen to such positions of power and cultural influence to be put back in the closet whehre they belong.

And there is no REPEAT NO cure for homosexual pedophiles.

Given ANY chance they will ALWAYS be repeat offenders.

They must be locked away for life if the safety of innocent children means anything.

Children are looked upon by these degenerate homosexual predators as FRESH MEAT.

And the younger they are, the greater the sick thrill for the homosexuals.
