    A popular US radio DJ and host of the Godtalk program has been indicted on two counts of child pornography using the internet.
    A self-described progressive and former Catholic priest, Bernie Ward works for San Francisco radio station KGO, hosting a night-time chat show and Sunday morning religious program, Godtalk.


    KGO's website today reported that Ward was indicted in the US Federal Court on two counts of child pornography using the internet.
    The report quoted Ward’s attorney as saying the incidents were from more than four years ago and were a part of research for a book.
    KGO’s Operations Director Jack Swanson said: “Bernie Ward has been a valued, long-time employee of KGO Radio.
    "We were just recently made aware of these serious charges and are surprised and concerned by their nature.
    "As the matter is currently pending in federal court, we will have no additional comment at this time."

    Hmmm, Every now and then I stumble on a radio show about the bible where the host sounds slightly ******ed. I wonder if it's that guy.

    Guess he took the whole "Jesus loves the little children" thing a bit literally.

    A guy got sacked from my works after having been found to be in possession of child porn. He used the exact same excuse: his father was some kinda bible thumper and wanted help doing research.

    Ahhhhh, so that's why choirboys are so high-pitched.

    The "it was research" excuse--I wonder why these guys never alert the authorities BEFORE they start doing their research . . . :whatever:

    I did a research paper in college on the relationship between the consumption of pornography (including child pornography) and sex offenses. I got an "A+" on the paper . . . and I didn't have to access any pornography to do so, much less child pornography.

    Throw him in prison. :cmad:
