Sorry, all right. Sorry he's caught. Lock him up . Lock him up good.

Prayers won't help those perverts. This is not about being homosexual, etc, etc,... a sexual deviant that needs to be locked away for a very long time.

Come on Brendan! It's not a few bad apples the entire barrel is rotten! Don't you read the papers and watch the news? When you google 'catholic priest' the first hit you get is 'scandal'. Do the math!

Looks like Rochelle is living in a dreamland. Probably believes in the easter bunny and tooth ferry too!

This is pure cruel perversion. He is still just full of selfishness, asking to start his sentence immediately so it will be considered double time served when he is sentenced. He's been living in the lap of luxury the past year and a half; did all his little innocent victims have such privileges?

As a practicing Roman Catholic, I rejoice in the fact that there is one fewer former clergy able to sexually exploit others. Society is much safer when these people are incarcerated and no longer able to exploit. Christians of all persuasions should never let a few bad apples spoil the whole barrel. I look forward to the day when all our Christian churches are led by holy and honorable men and women. My faith is in a Saving Lord; bad clergy can't change that. I hope Lahey gets his just punishment.

The media has done an excellent job of discrediting every bit of good that the Church does. We never hear of the good things only the bad. It is the only Church founded by Christ and therefore it is on the hit list. Even Jesus when he choose his twelve disciples there was one there who denied him. Too bad everyone is in such a rush to condemn all the Parish Priests. I know some have done wrong but to suggest all are guilty is even a greater sin because God himself says that you must forgive not seven times but seventy seven in other words indefinitely. Lets pray for our priests, ministers and any other persons in authority who deal with young people. Remember, there but for the grace of God go I.

"there but for the grace of God go I." So, it is God's grace that decides if someone is a sexual predator or not???? WOW, isn't that something, what a wonderful God you have. This powerful God of yours is one sick puppy.

I hope he is punished to the fullest extent of the law! it is absolutely repulsive to think that anybody could exploit innocent children this way! however it seems to be a trend within the rc clergy... maybe they should get over it and let them marry or come out of the closet maybe then they will leave the poor little boys alone! I am sure it is not all clergy members and i am sure it happens within other faiths but you cant help but wonder why it seems to be so prodominate in the roman catholic church.

There is always a few bad apples in every barrel, we can't judge the church by Lahey's behaviour. I hope the justice system gives the punishment he is due.

I am glad this man was caught and proven to be guilty.I am a practicing RC and the events of the past 20 years or more has indeed tested my faith but I am glad to say that I have accepted the fact that creeps like Lahey who were a part of my church have been caught and exposed and the full force of the law applied to them. I feel that this exposure of so many vile creeps like Lahey has been a cruxificion to many Catholics like me and some will never regain their faith. I have come to accept that the RC church has had its abundant share of bad clergy and hopeful all have been exposed. I still believe in Christ.I still feel a great love for the RC Church and I feel it is through the RC church that I can best attain salvation of my soul The RC church has many fine men and women serving the needs of her members and they work long and hard to live out their vocation as they accepted it.I still feel great admiration for these clergy ,teachers,nuns etc. Many will disagree with me while others will no doubt mock my adherance to the RC faith but that is my choice and my own business. So lets hope anyone who finds themselves living a life devoid of any faith practice may still live in great peace. I do not wish to push my personal beliefs on anyone.
