Shock after Dutch priest endorses pedophilia


By TOBY STERLING, Associated Press – Sat May 21, 7:20 am ET


AMSTERDAM – The Dutch Catholic Church and the Salesian order are investigating revelations that a Salesian priest served on the board of a group that promotes pedophilia with the full knowledge of his boss.

The order's top official in the Netherlands, Delegate Herman Spronck, confirmed in a statement that the priest — identified by RTL Nieuws as 73-year-old "Father Van B." — served on the board of "Martijn," a group that campaigns to end the Dutch ban on adult-child sex.

The group is widely reviled but not outlawed.

I don't know how these people get to be priests or are allowed to continue as Roman Catholic priests. Something is seriously wrong.  There was another Catholic priest in the Boston area, Father Paul Shanley, who helped to found NAMBLA, The North American  Man Boy Love Association. And he was given a letter of praise and recommendation by Cardinal Law.
