Bishop Lahey accused of sexually abusing boy

Up to now, we had only heard of Bishop Lahey being charged with possession and importing child pornography.  But now, a man has come forward claiming that Bishop Lahey sexually assaulted him many times in the early 1980s when he was between 9 and 13 years old.  Read the story here.

I personally think that there is a link between child porn and pedophilia.  I've read stories about convicted pedophiles who admit that child porn was a driver of their addiction.  

Keep in mind that none of these accusations against Bishop Lahey have been proven in court.  Of course, the accusations could be false, a clever scheme of an opportunist seeking to cash-in on the current scandals.  But these days, I'm not inclined to put blind faith in any clergyman.
