At Durham Crown Court, John Terence Paul Shannon, 58, admitted 16 counts of making indecent photographs or pseudo-photographs of a child. He also admitted one charge of possession of an indecent photo or pseudo-photo of a child. He was a priest in the Diocese of East Anglia and had taught at a County Durham seminary.

    When will people come to the realization that priests are nothing special, They are NOT endowed with morality and wisdom that no one else possesses. They are no more “Men of God” than any other person on the planet. Point in fact they are people with the same weaknesses and defects that afflict every other person on this planet.
    Pornography pervades this planet and child pornography is the province of the impotent, weak, sexually and emotionally immature; all traits of the vast majority of priests who hide from real life behind the veil of piety and divinity.
    HYPOCRITES, the lot!

    Robert, you’ve just said that priests have the same weaknesses and defects as everyone else. That’s because they, like us, are human, and as human’s we are vulnerable to the evils of the world. Most priests i’ve met don’t actually think they are better than everyone else, at the end of the day they are here to help us.

    I’m not saying that looking at child pornography is right at all, but just like those abused in the images, those who are tempted to look at it repeatedly are also victims, victims of compulsion to do something they know is wrong, and therefore deserve as much compassion as anyone else who is going through times of emotional troubles, be that a priest or just another regular person.

    That priest in the story has lost almost everything in this world – he won’t be able to continue in active ministry as a priest, or be able to work, and has surely gone thru hell since it all began, so please, show some compassion, because he must’ve suffered enough already.
