Church Child Protection Chief Caught with Child Porn

The latest story touching on the world wide sex abuse scandal in the Roman Catholic Church would almost be perversely funny but for the fact that it underscores the Church hierarchy's true utter indifference to the welfare of children and youths. About the only thing that can be said about the latest individual arrested is that for a change, he isn't a priest. Can anyone remind me again why people continue to fund this corrupt institution and kiss the typically very wide asses of the hierarchy? It seems that a child protection official for the Catholic Church in the United Kingdom has been arrested 4,000 pictures of child pornography on his computer. That's right, the guy who is supposed to be protecting children from pedophile clergy members. The Mirror has details on the arrest and here are some highlights:

Christopher Jarvis was arrested after uploading pictures of children being abused to a website. Married Jarvis, 49, a former social worker, was employed by the church following sex scandals about pervert priests.
His job was to monitor church groups to ensure paedophiles did not gain access to children
in the church’s congregations. But he was caught by police in March with more than 4,000 child porn images on his home computer and his work laptop. He admitted 12 counts of making, ­possessing and distributing indecent ­images when he appeared before ­magistrates in Plymouth and is likely to face jail when he returns to court for sentencing next month.

Church spokesman ­David Pond said: “Mr Jarvis was suspended from his position as soon as the diocese became aware in March of the police investigation. “The Bishop took that action and since then the Church has worked closely with the police.”

Obviously, whatever background check was done on Jarvis was sadly lacking. Part of me cannot help but wonder who he shared his porn with.
