A former Catholic brother and convicted sex offender is to fight an extradition order

A former Catholic brother and convicted sex offender is to fight an extradition order to Australia where he is facing 252 charges of sexually abusing boys.

Bernard McGrath has already served time in prison in New Zealand for abusing boys in Christchurch.

The former St John of God brother appeared in the Christchurch District Court on Monday morning, where he was remanded on bail and ordered to appear again on 28 January.

Commenting on his decision to allow television cameras to film McGrath in court, Judge Saunders said he did so to prevent a repeat of the situation last time the Catholic brother appeared, when he was followed by cameramen and filmed on the street.

Judge Saunders labelled those actions irresponsible.


About victimsofrapebythercc

The Catechism offers a clear moral teaching: "Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them." (no. 2356) Note that rape is "an intrinsically evil act," meaning that it is evil at its very root, nothing justifies it, and it is objectively a mortal sin. An evil act was done against me, a crime, by a priest at St Thomas More Parish in Durham, NH. An evil and a crime I will no longer keep silent about. Those who perpetrate crimes against children, especially those of the Roman Catholic Church, should all be punished for their crimes against children. Anything less would be criminal.
