…our inability to keep our hands off kids.
A 71-year-old Catholic Church deacon from Silver Spring has been charged with incest for allegedly abusing an underage female relative during the 1960s and 1970s, Montgomery County police said today.
Dan Paul Stallings, who has served as deacon at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Silver Spring since 1986, was arrested yesterday and charged with 10 counts of incest, police said.
Police said the abuse took place outside the church. However, investigators are concerned that Stallings may have abused other children he met through the ministry, police said. He has been actively involved in the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) at St. John the Evangelist Parish, police said.
But, hey, he’s only accused of incest, and incest—heterosexual incest, at least—doesn’t negatively impact world peace. Unlike gay marriage, which was specifically sited as roadblock to a settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians during the recent peace conference in Maryland. So, hey, nothing to see here. Just another Catholic pedo.
