Child porn charges shock Montreal church (guess which religion?)

Some parishioners at a Montreal Catholic church were shocked to learn Sunday that a deacon is being charged with producing and distributing child pornography.

William Kokesch, 65, was arrested Friday morning and charged on Saturday via video link at the Montreal courthouse.

Police said they found more than 2,000 images of children on a computer. His bail hearing will be held Monday at the Montreal courthouse.

Kokesch, who lives in Pointe-Claire, was a deacon for the St-Edmund of Canterbury parish in Beaconsfield on Montreal's West Island.

1. The same shit goes on in every religion.

Fundamentalist Mormons marry off 13 year olds. Child brides are also common in Afghanistan, Pakistan and across Africa (Muslim), India (Hindu), China (Buddhist), etc. The Hare Krishnas have had numerous pedophilia scandals. The world clearing house for child porn (Japan) is Buddhist.

Acting like this is a Catholic problem is supremely unhelpful.

It's an abuse of authority problem that's going to crop up anywhere people are willing to believe that other people know what God is thinking.
