Wikipedia Distributing Child Porn, Co-Founder Tells FBI By Jana Winter FOXNews.com
April 27, 2010 The parent company of Wikipedia is knowingly distributing child pornography, the co-founder of the online encyclopedia says, and he’s imploring the FBI to investigate.

Larry Sanger, who left Wikipedia in 2002, said Wikimedia Commons, the parent company of Wiki products including Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikinews and Wikiquote, is rife with renderings of children performing sexual acts. Sanger sent a letter to the FBI earlier this month outlining his concerns and identifying two specific Wikimedia Commons categories he believes violate federal obscenity law. The first category, entitled “Pedophilia,” contains 25-30 explicit and detailed drawings of children performing sexual acts.  The category was created three years ago. The second, “Lolicon,” provides cartoons similar in detail and depiction. One of the more egregious cartoons shows a rendering of a young child about to perform oral sex on a much older man….But the threat is even greater than the images themselves, says James Marsh, an attorney who wrote about Sanger’s letter to the FBI on his Child Law Blog.  “Wikipedia’s continued interest in child sexual exploitation is troubling not only because the site hosts some questionable images, but because it can easily serve as a gateway to other sites containing child pornography,” Marsh told FoxNews.com….

UPDATES: Following publication of this article, Wikimedia Foundation posted an online response that reads in part: “The Wikimedia Foundation obeys the law. In the weeks since Sanger’s published allegations, the Wikimedia Foundation has not been contacted by the FBI or any other law-enforcement agency with regard to allegedly illegal content on any Wikimedia projects. Our community of volunteer editors takes action to remove illegal material when such material is brought to its attention. The Wikimedia Foundation is proud of the Wikimedia editors who zealously work to keep the projects free of illegal material. If and when we are informed by law enforcement agencies of illegal content that has not already been removed through self-policing, we will take quick action to delete it.”….

Erik Moeller also posted a response  that reads in part: “I want to say definitively: I do not defend nor support acts of sexual violence against children and have never defended pedophilia in any way. “I have consistently defended the right of children of comparable age to engage in consensual, harmless sexual interactions with each other – what’s commonly called “playing doctor”, and also safe sex among teens. I have never defended the “right” of pedophiles to abuse children; child sexual abuse is a crime, and there is no such right. Children also don’t have the ability to consent to sexual activity with pedophiles, and such activities are sexual violence against children by definition.”….

FoxNews.com has been informed that Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, sent a copy of Sanger’s letter to the FBI on April 21, and Rep. Steve Austria, R-Ohio, sent a copy of the same letter to the FBI on April 27.

Pedophile priest flees back to Ireland, where he is a free man By NIALL O’DOWD IrishCentral.com Publisher  4/27/10  Notorious pedophile priest Father Oliver O’Grady is back in his old haunts in Ireland  a free man after fleeing Rotterdam in Holland, where it was discovered that he was working with children and in a local Catholic church, calling himself “Brother Francis.” O’Grady abused hundreds of children during his thirty years in America as a priest. One victim was only nine months old. He served seven years out of a 14-year prison sentence before being deported to Ireland in 2003. O’Grady was unmasked in Holland a few weeks ago after a 2006 documentary called “Deliver us from Evil” was finally shown in the country.  The documentary is based on his activities while in America and the priest was immediately recognized….Local police in Ireland say they can do nothing, as O’Grady has not committed any crime since he was deported from America in 2003. He is due to receive a large retirement benefit from the church when he turns 65 in June, according to Berg. http://www.irishcentral.com/news/Pedophile-priest-flees-back-to-Ireland-where-he-is-a-free-man-92147629.html

California Church Cover-up? Allegations Los Angeles Cardinal Mahony Knew Of Priest’s Abuse
By chris oregan  LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2002 (CBS)   When victims of a California priest were awarded $30 million in 1998, it was the largest judgment ever against the Catholic Church. And, for the first time in a priest abuse case, a cardinal, Roger Mahony, testified. “I felt like he lied to us,” said juror Mary Park. He told Park and other jurors that when he was Bishop of Stockton, he didn’t know Father Oliver O’Grady was a molester. Mahony transferred the priest weeks after a police investigation. He claimed he never read the secret file his diocese kept which contained O’Grady’s confession. “We asked each other, ‘Did you think he was telling the truth?’ And the greatest majority of us felt he wasn’t being honest with us, that he was still covering up,” said Park. In 1991, evidence surfaced connecting Mahony and his predecessors to the cover up of the Rita Milla case. When she was a teenager, a priest told her: he had a secret. “He just leaned over and kissed me,” said Milla. In time, she says Father Santiago Tamayo forced her to have sex with him and other priests. “It was seven priests. It didn’t stop until I got pregnant,” she said….But, reports CBS News Correspondent Vince Gonzales, when they did nothing she decided to sue. The priests fled and the archdiocese said it didn’t know where they went. The story might have ended there, but seven years later, Father Tamayo, plagued by guilt, came back and confessed. He’d kept letters showing the Church knew he was in the Philippines and paid him to stay there. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/04/23/eveningnews/main507039.shtml
