    Registered sex offender studies to be priest

    I saw this online while researching a different case. Gives me the creeps.

    http://www.fdlreporter.com/apps/pbcs...2/1289/FONnews


    A registered sex offender living on East Follett Street called police to report someone left pornographic magazines on his back porch.


    The 49-year-old man told police he is no longer on probation and is studying to be a priest, according to the police report.

    Police took the magazines as evidence.

    (bolding is mine)

    So, the Church is aware of this and sees no problem here? Just great!

    Not all of the priests are perverts.

    In fact, MOST are not. For the few you hear about, there are thousands who are God-fearing and wonderful who would never dream of harming a child.

    Very true! Like mankind in general, a few bad apples do not reflect upon the whole bunch.

    You are absolutely right. But it makes you wonder why the Catholic church, which already has a very publicized molest problem with some of its priests, would allow a sex-offender to study to become one.

    Yes, but how did this man get the SO label...some SO labels are bogus, IMHO. Without knowing more, we can't condemn the Church for allowing him to study to become a priest.

    That is a good question. I know a young man who when he was 13 thought it would be cool to moon people from the back window of a bus. It was a stupid prank, but he was arrested and stuck with the sexual offender label.

    We don't know what kind of priest he's studying to be, nor if his "studies" are officially sanctioned by any church. Maybe he's studying on his own and thinking someday he'll be a priest, i.e. deluding himself. We don't know. Still, it gave me the creeps.

    Exactly. I know of people who have gotten them from peeing in public. It makes the label mean nothing when that sort of stuff happen!
