ABUSARE UNA BAMBINA?
È solo un momento di debolezza!
Un altro prete pedofilo arrestato negli Stati Uniti.
Lo vedete nella foto, insieme al suo avvocato (il pedofilo è quello in grigio).
James Patrick Grady ha risposto ad un finto annuncio messo dalla F.B.I. dove si offrivano “ragazze di tutte le età”.
Lui cercava una bambina per “un rapporto orale ed un massaggio”. Cifra pattuita: 80 dollari.
Peccato (per fortuna) che all’appuntamento il predatore non abbia trovato la piccola ma alcuni agenti che gli hanno messo le manette.
Il solito copione insomma, con l’ennesima sfilata di imbecilli al suo processo. Tutti pronti a testimoniare quanto fosse “bravo, buono, bello”.
Tra questi una parrocchiana che “lo conosce dal 1983” e che in lacrime alla stampa ha detto:
”gli voglio molto bene e lo perdono perché sicuramente è stato un momento di debolezza; d’altro canto lui è una bravissima persona, figlio devoto che chiamava il proprio padre sul letto di morte almeno una volta al giorno”…….
Quasi quasi invidio la notizia battuta ieri del pedofilo che scaricava files pedo ma ha dato la colpa al gatto…..almeno lì, nessuno ha testimoniato quanto buono fosse (il felino!).
Buona giornata a tutti.

The Rev. James P. Grady, 57, pastor of St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church in south St. Louis, was arrested Wednesday after allegedly agreeing to pay $80 for oral sex from a 16-year-old girl. Grady was responding to an online ad offering young girls, federal court documents say.
Grady and his lawyer were in U.S. District Court in St. Louis to answer a charge of attempting to obtain a minor for a commercial sex act, which carries a potential penalty of 10 years to life in prison.
The Archdiocese of St. Louis declined to comment on the case Monday.
Grady’s trial is currently scheduled for Oct. 5.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Howard Marcus filed notice Monday that evidence includes e-mails and phone conversations allegedly exchanged between Grady and an undercover officer, as well as the things he said after his arrest and a video of his visit to a house where the 16-year-old was supposedly located.
Investigators also searched Grady’s car and computer.
Grady and his lawyer will have the opportunity to challenge those materials at a hearing currently scheduled for Aug. 24.
Grady was one of three men charged in the sting, which began in early July to target the customers of child prostitutes.
Bank employee Matthew S. Nichol, 43, responded to the ad on July 13 and eventually agreed to pay $200 to have sex with two girls, the charging documents claim.
David P. Hawkey, 25, who works for a landscaping company, agreed to pay $80 for sex with a 14-year-old girl, court documents say.

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 2 (UPI) — St. Louis Archbishop Robert J. Carlson said the Catholic Church is sorry for the arrest of a St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church pastor on sex charges.
Appearing during Saturday’s mass at the St. Louis church, the archbishop called for the parish community to heal in the wake of the Rev. James P. Grady’s arrest on charges he agreed to pay a 16-year-old girl for oral sex, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Sunday.
“I know some of you are hurting, some of you are scandalized, some of you are embarrassed and therefore it is important for me to be with you,” Carlson said.
“I come to apologize on behalf of the church and hopefully help you as a parish community to begin the process of healing.”
Grady, 57, was arrested Wednesday and Carlson confirmed he suspended the St. Raphael pastor pending the outcome of the case.
The Post-Dispatch said, according to court documents, an undercover investigator arranged the alleged sex deal with Grady through e-mails. The pastor was arrested by FBI and police officials after arriving at a secret location allegedly to follow through on the illicit rendezvous.
