Catholic priest caught with kiddie porn trove
« on: March 21, 2018, 05:21:44 pm »
W. Thomas Faucher, a retired Catholic priest in Idaho, was caught with a trove of child pornography and chat logs in which he discussed his desire to "rape and kill children." He also had a drug cache containing marijuana, ecstasy, and LSD.

At least the Diocese of Boise appears to be taking this seriously (or at least more seriously than other dioceses have in the past) and not contributing toward his legal defense or the bond he posted for his release pending trial. It does make me wonder if other priests or bishops in the diocese might have known about Fr. Faucher's proclivities, though--I refuse to afford the Catholic Church any benefit of the doubt in these cases any more.

It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.
