Robert Fuller, “a 54-year-old Sydney Catholic priest has been arrested and charged after allegedly attempting to groom detectives who were masquerading as a 13-year-old girl, sending them a series of sexually explicit chat-room messages.” In response, “The Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal George Pell said: “This is appalling and distressing news. I share the concern and alarm of parishioners, and particularly of parents and the school community. I can assure them that the safety of children in our parishes and schools is paramount, and the Archdiocese will co-operate fully with the police in relation to this and any other investigation into abuse at anytime.”
NB. “Father Fuller used two names during the conversations – “rr” and “rogers_2468″ the document stated” : http://www.myspace.com/rogers_2468.
I feel sorry for the majority of Catholic priests whose ‘criminal acts’, such as they are, typically confine themselves to drinking (too much), smoking, gambling, and fucking (other adults).
“Dear young people, let me now ask you a question. What are you going to leave to the next generation? What legacy will you leave to young people yet to come? What difference will you make?” ~ Pope Benedict at WYD08, Sydney
