    Organist, or maybe an excorcist with an unusual way of expelling demons

    Theologically he came to save us all.

    Actually, I share the name of the Apostate Emperor instead, which I always thought a delightful irony given the importation of Latin names to America by Spanish Catholics, many of whom desired above all else to forcibly convert the indigenous masses.

    I agree with you 100% Dan and I have no problem with him being in the church but leading a church is something entirely different . As humans we have no idea if this person is fully recovered or not. When a person in the secular world commits such a crime it is bad. When a Christian commits such a crime it goes up in neon lights and is advertised on the side of the Good Year blimp. As Christians we need to be aware of and prepared to meet the needs of others but the the needs of the Church as the body of Christ needs to be considered before all things. And the church surely does not need to put itself at risk for another scandal such as this could cause.

    Well, at least he will have a large support group to move him around and hide him if he sexually abuses more children.

    Didn't Christ have some special words for the protection of children. Even Christ maybe would "forgive" a sinner but I do not think that Christ would place children in the path of pedophiles. Pedophiles are an extreme form of sinner and once they commit such a crime they have given up the right to be considered human beings. Pedophiles are not deserving of the right to achieve redemtion. Pedophiles should be flushed down the toilet.

    same result, there should be no reduction in the sentence served.
