Pope’s Advisor on Pedophilia Scandal Arrested for — Well, You’ll Never Guess What

Try to contain your shock: a Vatican official in charge of advising the Pope on pedophilia is accused of having somewhat more knowledge of the practice than he should have.

[UPDATE: Oh, whoops! A lot of news sources, us included, reported that it was the adviser who was arrested, but it was actually just a priest who worked for the adviser. So, that’s a relief.]

He’s been arrested for, among other things, writing, “I do not want 16-year-old boys but younger. Fourteen-year-olds are O.K. Look for needy boys who have family issues.” Other accusations: trading cocaine for boys, and that the Vatican knew about the problem for decades.

You know, NOM likes to feign a lot of outrage about “teaching gay marriage” in schools, even though all that really means is teaching children how to respect and value each other.

They act like instilling tolerance is tantamount to child abuse. Meanwhile, the Vicar of Christ is running a matchmaking service for statutory rapists. Awesome.
