  • Sack as a minimum. But jail time sounds good.
  • hell yes !
  • They should put him away for good.
  • They should lock him up in prison and throw away the key to his cell. Thank God I'm not a Catholic and I don't listen to any priests.
  • By all means.. He should be sent to hell ya..
  • They should f*cking cricify him!
  • Lock Him Up For Life! There is No room for him out here in the free world. This crap needs to Stop. (thanks keithold for getting me upset. LOL)
  • *Accused*, or *Found probably guilty*? Everybody deserves a hearing - you should not sack people just on an accusation, which may be malicious. The hearind should be held quickly, and the priest kept away from young girls until it is heard. If guilty, of course he should be sacked.
  • I agree whole-heartedly with Im Alec. and hell yeah, he should be sacked (if guilty). If he did it, the bloody cops better get involved!
  • Accusation is one thing,..facts are another. Everyone deserves a hearing. There have been some much publicised offenses by priests. There have also been some false accusations. Same goes for teachers. I know of many false accusations, but the damage was done. Little girls can be evil creatures as well.
  • If proven guilty then my answer is a definite yes.
  • I expected a 13 year old boy.
  • No, they should sack Catholic Church itself.
  • Only if found guilty :) There are to many people these days willing to declare a person guilty without tial.
  • If found guilty yes, they are not above the law. It is still disturbing and disgusting what happened here in the States with so many priests molesting young boys. They should be put away for good. +5
  • +5 I am shocked. What is wrong with this priest? I have never heard of a priest grooming a girl for sex. This is so odd. Usually it is a boy.
  • If guilty of the offence without any doubt then yes without doubt he should be sacked, and jailed.
  • Only if he is found guilty.
  • No. The Catholic Church should suspend a priest accused of attempting to groom a 13 year old girl while the police and legal system deal with the matter. When proved guilty, then he should be sacked. This should be combined with an independent investigation on behalf of the Church.
  • These are the reasons they should bring back public stoning's.
  • First off, interesting choice of words.... Secondly....HELL YES! They need to send these zealots to prison like any other normal pedophile.
  • If the accusations are proven valid, yes. Any other organization would.
  • You've described a person who is not a priest but an imposter. If this activity (whatever grooming a girl for sex means) is discovered the Church should suspend the poser priest and involve law enforcement. When any allegations are proved law enforcement should proceed with prosecution and the church should break any ties with this "priest."
  • As with anyone, he should be assumed innocent until proven guilty. If he is guilty, then definitely yes. Either way, the matter should be thoroughly investigated.
  • Not accused. But if it can proved, yes? In the meantime he needs to be taken out of the parish.
  • If guilty they should hang the bastards with nails by their wrists to see if they'll ask, "Why have you forsaken me?" too.
  • yes .. sex with a child is always wrong.. nothing can make it right no matter how pretty the packaging ! so glad i can point you up again ! such thought provoking questions. i cannot imagine anyone disagreeing with me but hey it happens.
  • ABSOLUTELY YES!! 1st of all that is sexual abuse on a child and 2ndly the priest is breaking his vow of chastity. A grown man seducing a little girl is an utterly immoral and cruel thing to do!
  • I could not get the link to work. If there is another witness agreeing with the charge, yes. Parents should not and the Priest should not allow the Priest and a girl to be alone together, if that was the case. (2Cor 13:1; 1Tim 5:19-20; 1Tim 3:8-10; Titus 1:5-9) http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2Cor%2013:1;1Tim%205:19-20;1Tim%203:8-10;Titus%201:5-9&version=NASB;HCSB;NKJV;NLT;KJV
  • No, they should send him to another precinct where he is not known. attempting isnt doing it.
  • I have been accused of all sorts of shit (although not of grooming a 13 yr old girl for sex). I assume the church has proof. If so, sack away. If not, demand it. If it does not exist, tell the accuser to get lost.
  • I think any proven case of sexual harassment or molestation of anyone on the part of a priest should result in the guilty priest being excommunicated from the Church and arrested. Harassment and molestation are crimes, so treat them like crimes. With priests who are supposed to be religious leaders and who take sacred vows when they become priests, such behavior is even more appalling, imho. I don't understand how relocation could be a justifiable punishment. If you break your vows, don't worry we'll just put you somewhere else? I'm sorry, but that doesn't seem right.
  • He should be excommunicated by the Pope. That is a grave sin from Christianity and Catholicism.
  • Yes if the accusation is proven. That sort of thing makes me ill.
