Priest Allegedly Told Girl To Pray Before He Raped Her In Church


A former Anglican priest told a young girl she might see her beloved deceased dog if she prayed before he raped her in a church, a court has heard.
On another occasion, when she tried to stop his advances, the man allegedly became angry and told her God would not forgive her.

He then allegedly raped and committed an act of indecency on her before saying “Remember what I told you” as he walked away.

The 67-year-old – who cannot be named for legal reasons – went on trial in the ACT Supreme Court on Wednesday on 18 charges of sexual intercourse with a child and committing acts of indecency.

2. Really? You make this about guns? Really?

Then obviously the US needs many, many more guns.

“In 2008, the Church asserted that the scandal was a very serious problem, but at the same time, estimated that it was "probably caused by 'no more than 1 per cent' (or about 5,000) of the around 410,000 Roman Catholic priests worldwide. The overwhelming majority (approximately 80%) of reported cases of sexual abuse of minors occurred in the United States.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) commissioned the John Jay College of Criminal Justice to conduct a comprehensive study based on surveys completed by the Roman Catholic dioceses in the United States. The product of the study, titled the John Jay Report indicated that some 11,000 allegations had been made against 4,392 priests in the USA. This number constituted approximately 4% of the priests who had served during the period covered by the survey (1950–2002).”

4. Well since this is about a priest who tells the kid

God wants him to get it on with the priest, I’d say it was more about priests abusing a position of power. But it don’t got nuttin to do with guns.

6. Is that a tenet of Christianity or a deviant abusing power?

8. This is so sad...at my church, we have policies in place where no one is alone with a child

my church is small though.

I hope he never gets out of prison, but the man who raped my niece when she was 2, was only sentenced to 7 years and got out in 3.5

9. What does this mean:

“He allegedly raped and committed an act of indecency on her...”

Isn’t raping and an act of indecency the same thing?
