When it comes to Catholic priest pederasty scandals

it takes a lot to shock me, but this managed to rise above (sink below?) the norm:

Investigators say that in tapped mobile-phone conversations, Seppia asked a Moroccan drug dealer to arrange sexual encounters with young and vulnerable boys. "I do not want 16-year-old boys but younger. Fourteen-year-olds are O.K. Look for needy boys who have family issues"
In the tapped phone conversations, the drug dealer contacted the boys and gave their phone numbers to the priest, who paid them with cocaine or 50 euros each time for sexual intercourse.
"He has read the newspapers, and he is pained by his parishioners' comments," says his lawyer.

Aw, the poor guy!
