Catholic, pedo, scumbag rots in jail for Christmas

Bernard McGrath is in Sydney and has appeared before the Magistrate, who refused him bail.

He will be enjoying Christmas behind bars.

A former Catholic brother extradited from New Zealand to Australia to face hundreds of child sexual abuse charges has been refused bail in a Sydney court.

Bernard McGrath, 66, is in Australia after a legal bid to block his extradition failed in New Zealand’s highest court earlier this month.

Today, his matter was mentioned at Parramatta Local Court.  

McGrath, who is a New Zealand citizen, didn’t apply for bail which was formally refused, the NSW Department of Justice confirmed.

He is facing a total 252 charges, including 102 counts of indecent assaults on males.

The allegations date back to the 1970s and 1980s.

Detectives started extradition proceedings in November 2011.

The matter will return to Parramatta Local Court on December 29.

Finally he is starting feel the long arm of the law and justice.

    Thankfully, with public disgust running high on pedo’s and sexual offenders, the judiciary have taken note over here, and he is likely to be gifted free board and lodging for the rest of his natural life. Life can be tough behind bars in aussie, violence is common and even the prison community seems to dislike sexual offenders. Perhaps it’s high time to look up and down the “catholic tree” and shake out those who partook, supported or concealed his crimes.

    Saw a FB cartoon the other day – “Welcome to the Karma Cafe – there is no menu. You’ll get served what you deserve.”

    I think it’s safe to say he is just beginning his dining experience!

    Hope he enjoys unwanted advances, just as much as he enjoyed advancing.

    Would it ever be possible for the Catholic Church to reverse its position on celibacy? There does seem to be an increase within the Church in questioning whether celibacy is required or not. That would be some legacy for a Pope to leave.

      You actually have to understand what they mean by celibacy.
      For Catholic priests and nuns it means only “Thou shalt not marry” – anything else goes as it can be covered up.

      The celibacy thing is all about appearances (“these are Holy people”) but is also to guarantee all the priests’ absolute allegiance and loyalty will be firmly with the Marists and not shared with any wife & kids.

      Anyway, the marrying bit would be sort of hard to hide, and a priest could then even develop feelings of empathy for others.

    A Catholic boy in confession says, “Bless me Father, I have sinned, I masturbated while thinking about my sister.”
    “That’s a disgrace,” said the priest,”especially when you have two gorgeous brothers.”
