Priest: The 4 Year Old Girl I Sexually Abused, Provoked Me
Â You know, this sort of story really pisses me off. WHERE THE HELL IS THE OUTRAGE FROM CHRISTIANS? Why aren’t they demanding for their church to do something about a very serious and rampant problem with their pedophile priests? Fucking subservient douchebags.
Man: Girl, 4, provoked me
WOODSTOCK â€“ A retired Canadian pastor likely on track to leave a McHenry County courtroom Friday with probation for sexually abusing a 4-year-old girl instead found himself behind bars after he told a judge that the girl acted sexually provocative toward him.
â€œI tried to avoid the encounters. On a couple of times, I thought I was being sexually harassed,â€ Kenneth R. Cooke, 73, told a judge. â€œI think there is psychological evidence today that children, even in their younger years, could become interested in sex.â€
After listening to Cookeâ€™s statements, Judge Joseph Condon sentenced him to three years in prison. Condon said the sentence was based partly on Cookeâ€™s attitude.
â€œThat just boggles my mind,â€ Condon said to Cooke. â€œYou are willing to say whatever is convenient to you and what is most likely to release the pressure of these proceedings against you.â€
Cooke pleaded guilty in November to aggravated criminal sexual abuse for abusing the girl in a Lake in the Hills home in 2003 while visiting from Canada.
â€œShe will never be the same, naive, innocent child she was before the crime,â€ the girlâ€™s mother said in court.
â€œShe feels guilty and the sense of being a bad person because she has done things that she knows are wrong modeled after Mr. Cooke.â€
Before Cooke ever appeared in a U.S. courtroom to answer to the charges, he fought his extradition from Canada for years, prosecutors said.

The argument is not new — Freud recanted from an accurate interpretation under peer pressure and invented the Electra Complex, blaming little girls for lusting after their fathers.
Freud’s peers, and generations of subsequent male psychiatrists, happily promulgated the child-blaming myth.
The little girl should actually recover quite nicely because the abuse by McHenry been stopped.

Am I the only one who thinks 3 years in prison is nowhere near enough?
I say lynch the bastard.

Stories like this need to become more public, so that moderate theists can begin to take at least some action to prevent more crazy priest attacks.
Totally insane how he got only 3 yrs for this.

The role of priest is bound to be a pretty dodgy one. After all, this is someone who carries out the insane policies of a psychotic organisation which “believes” that it is told what to do by a giant invisible alien super-being.
The role of the christian cultist is very childish, big daddy god telling them what to do, suspended critical faculties, veneration of “innocence” etc, could this be something to do with the bizarre and revolting sexual interest of priests in children?

I agree, this bastard deserves a good lynching.
