Priest in Michigan Arrested in Internet Sex Sting
The Associated Press
Published: May 25, 2004


WARREN, Mich. (AP) - A Roman Catholic priest was arrested in an Internet sex sting after allegedly arranging to meet someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl.

The Rev. Shamaun Beas, 35, was charged with offenses including sexually abusive activity involving a child and using a computer to commit a crime. The charges carry up to 20 years in prison. He was jailed on $5 million bail.

6. more than are here
Ridder pled to his crime and he was arrested for exactly the same thing (meeting a police woman who had posed as an underage girl). In point of fact, there is more evidence of Ridder's guilt due to the plea than there is of this priest's.

8. Funny How We Don't Talk About That
It pissed me off to no end, during the height of the ped scandal to see one group of people blame it on homosexuality, and another group say it was a good reason for admitting openly homosexual priests.

But no one gives a shit when it's the girl-children who get the great mind-fuck.

10. But it's considered "normal" for priests to screw girls and women
Actually, it used to be a far greater number of girls and women (than boys ormen) were sexually abused by priests.

I don't know if any of that's changed, though.

However, it was considered more "normal" so there was less said about priests haveing sex with girls or women.
