Priest gets three years for sexual assault
Paedophile priest Fr Thomas Naughton has been sentenced to three years' imprisonment following his conviction on charges of sexual assault.
Should it be of any surprise that it's not hard to find priests being sentenced for sex crimes two days in a row?
...the victim said he was abused about 70 times by the priest and had attempted suicide twice. He said he was extremely paranoid, was afraid to get close to people and was being treated for a sex addiction that he blamed on the abuse. In July 1998, the priest was sentenced to three years for abusing four young altar boys.
This is why I feel a mix of laughter and outrage when a catholic leader demands respect for the catholic church or when the pope criticizes gays or other lifestyles he doesn't like.
