Horror Show Sunday: Pastorly Porn

I guess if you’re going to do something, go big or go home.  A church youth group leader, Gregory Gibson, has been arrested in Baltimore with a stash of kiddy porn so large, police are calling it the “most serious” case of child pornography ever. 63-year old Gibson, father of four, and youth group leader at the Chinese Christian Church in nearby Parkville, had amassed a truly massive collection.  According to Elise Armacost of the Baltimore County Police Department, “We have found literally hundreds of thousands of extremely disturbing images of extremely young children.  Most of them are girls.  These are very graphic and explicit depictions of child abuse, sexual activity and erotica involving young children.”

While investigating, they also found that Gibson’s wife was running an unlicensed day care center out of the home.  It has been shut down, but they say there is no evidence that Gibson abused any of the children, either at the day care center or at the church.

When arrested, Gibson acknowledged his problem, saying that he struggles with his need to view child pornography and admitted to downloading and sharing child pornography amounting to more than a quarter million images and videos. Gibson plead guilty to all charges and must now register as a sex offender for the rest of his life and faces between five and twenty years in prison.

Honestly, he worked with the church for at least 3-4 years and nobody ever noticed that this guy was getting off to the kids he was watching?  He was also working with children at his wife’s unregistered day care facility, including infants.  Are we supposed to think he wasn’t getting his jollies off the whole time?  He was very clear that he’s been collecting kiddy porn for many years over the Internet, this isn’t something recent, I think it’s clear that he was involved in the church specifically so he had access to children and they don’t do background checks?  These kind of stories crop up far too often and any church that doesn’t is being irresponsible.

So here we go again, Horror Show Sunday, another person using his position at a church to have access to kids.  I suppose we should be grateful we didn’t find that he’d  been molesting them all for years, but that doesn’t  let him off the hook.  I hope he gets exactly what he deserves in prison.  Maybe he can minister to the inmates while they’re kicking his sick pedo ass.
