Some of you may recall reading Professor Turley’s recent post about a Massachusetts priest who allegedly stole more than $80,000 from his parish to support his pornography habit. Well, there’s a new story about a priest in Spain who is alleged to have saved more than 20,000 pornographic images of children on his computer.
The unnamed 52-year-old priest has been bailed out and is due to appear before a judge in two weeks. He has reportedly been suspended by his diocese.
The El Pais newspaper has reported that the following statement was released by the diocese: “If the accusation is true, this is something that hurts us deeply, that we sincerely regret and that we reject unreservedly,”
