A federal judge decreed a prison term of more than seven years Thursday for Bernie Ward, whose 15-year career as a leading liberal voice on Bay Area talk radio disintegrated when he admitted downloading graphic images of child sex and distributing them on the Internet.
Ward’s case is a “personal tragedy,” and a prison term may not be the best way to help him or the children exploited by pornography, Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker said as he imposed the sentence in a San Francisco courtroom. But he noted that federal law requires at least a five-year sentence, and said some aspects of the case were disturbing.
Walker said Ward, a former Roman Catholic priest whose KGO broadcasts included the Sunday morning “God Talk” program, “had an opportunity to think long, hard and deeply about the problems of child abuse” in the Catholic Church. Why, the judge asked, “when he encountered his own predilection (for child pornography), didn’t he seek treatment, seek help?”

Catholic priest in charge of sex scandal caught with kiddy porn

It’s beginning to look like any effort to “clean up” the Catholic church of pedophiles is an impossible task. Consider this: Pope Benedict XVI’s right hand man in charge of helping him track down pedo priests, Father Riccardo Seppia, was arrested last May when he was caught trying to arrange sexual encounters with his drug dealer. Now, it seems as though another priest in charge of investigating pederasts has been arrested of actually being one. Married Jarvis [Not a name but a title for some reason] was recently commissioned by the Diocese of Plymouth, England to ensure that pedophiles would not have access to children. He’s been fired from his job after police found over 4000 sexually explicit pictures of minors. Way to clean house, guys.
Here are the pictures i promised brother Chalcedon. He didnt believe the popes mitre had tails. According to bro Chalcedon, its just a coincidence. Lets take a hypothetical look at the designing of this hat. The conversation might have gone like this;
Well, how shall we shape the poniffs hat?
Say, how about a giraffe hat?
No no, too odd.
Ok, uh, how about a banana? thats the ticket.
Naw, say how about a fish head, yeah, a fish hat.
Say, thats a great idea.
Dont admit this to any protestants
Oh yes, the catholic church is the One Holy Apostolic True church. Well, if it wasnt for the money laundering and rampant pedophilia i guess it would be. Naw. God doesnt work that way, his body doesnt have a headquarters or costumed holymen. Oh, and His church doesnt burn bible believers to death.
