Vatican Arrests Former Archbishop on Pedophilia Charges

The Vatican on Tuesday arrested a former archbishop accused of paying for sex with children while he was a papal ambassador in the Dominican Republic, the first-ever arrest inside the city state on charges of pedophilia.

Jozef Wesolowski, a Pole who was defrocked by a Vatican tribunal in June, has been placed under house arrest awaiting a criminal trial, the Vatican said in a statement.

    If found guilty he’ll be sentenced to an three Hail Mary’s and four Our Father’s and all will be forgiven.

      Perhaps, but I find much worse and equally guilty governments, such as the provincial government of Ontario, determined to implement the grooming of young children on a large scale than one homosexual priest/bishop or whatever. Not excusing him, but what we have allowed at home is far worse due to the scale.
