Children of the Church Beware…Seriously.

Well it seems that the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children (OICA) Task Force is doing good work in my lovely state.  Rev. Dr. Mark Griggs who is the pastor at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church located in Olmsted Falls have been charged with….you guessed it…Child pornography (sick).

The 48 year old pastor is facing 112 counts of receiving, trading, downloading and possessing child pornography.  The files have been traced to both his home and church computers.  However it seems that Rev. Griggs is going to be defending himself on this case, with the defense that he was on Limewire (internet file sharing program) and that when downloading files, you have no control of what is coming onto your computer…I am not a computer genius but even I know that this statement is bullshit!  Limewire can be set so that anything you download or already have on your computer will not be shared.  Sorry Rev. but you have complete control over what is done on Limewire.

In a statement that was released last Thursday, the Presbytery of the Western Reserve said the following about Griggs’ arrest: “We do not have much information about this situation yet but the Presbytery takes allegations of misconduct very seriously and will cooperate with authorities in their investigation.”

Prosecutor Mason says that predators should be aware that, if they continue trading in child porn, they may well be caught.

I guess it’s safe to say, Thank God for the OICA (no pun intended).



About Bobby the Paranormal Skeptic
Bobby Nelson is a skeptic, writer, and co-host of Strange Frequencies Radio. His personal blog can be found online at At one time, Bobby was what could be called a "true believer" in paranormal phenomenon. Having been an active investigator of the paranormal for 12 years with several different Toledo based teams, he has examined countless claims of activity. But years worth of research and investigation proved to him that the evidence for these claims are generally lacking and, furthermore, the vast majority of so-called scientific paranormal investigators were using improper methodologies which caused them to draw both false and misleading conclusions.

    Just another reason to raise your children atheist, so they don’t come in contact with freaks like this. That being said, of course I know pedophiles are everywhere…but still. How Godly of someone to diddle children. Ew.
