Molesting priest beaten to death

Sunday, December 7, 2003 Posted: 1429 GMT (10:29 PM HKT)

LEXINGTON, Kentucky (AP) -- A retired Roman Catholic priest who admitted molesting three altar boys in 1995 was found beaten to death at his home, police said Saturday.

Joseph Pilger, 78, was found dead in his home Friday night. An autopsy Saturday found the cause of death to be multiple blunt force injuries, according to the Fayette County coroner. The death is being investigated as a homicide.

Pilger lived alone until the past month, when a young man began staying with him, said his neighbor, Karen Owens. Owens said Pilger's car, which had been at his home earlier in the day, was missing Friday night.

Pilger pleaded guilty to sexual abuse in 1995 for abusing three altar boys in 1968 and 1969, when he was their pastor in Morganfield in western Kentucky. He was sentenced to five years' probation beginning in January 1995.

Earlier this year, Pilger was named in a sex-abuse lawsuit against the dioceses of Lexington and Covington. Pilger declined to comment on the allegation.

My dad once got stopped for slight speeding in a small town in Kentucky. They actually wanted to throw him in jail, and ended letting him go with just a fine cuz they had my 15 month old little cousin riding with them.

karma doesn't exist for you one lifetime it can be carried on to another life. the person that killed the priest can expect to have bad karma in his next life. so the consequence is rarely seen in your current life cycle, generally you pay in the next.

You are of course assuming that there is a next life.

Anyways, who cares what happens in the next life? He got what he had coming. Boo frickety hoo.

no i don't know if there's a next life, karma assumes it. i don't particulary believe in karma, but at least i understand the term. no sense in using terms if ya don't know the meaning. (i know you didn't use it)

that's bullshit.


this is no cause and effect. this is probably somebody taking out revenge. it has nothing to do with karma.

Karma is fate
Fate is predetermined
predetermined is... you getting ass kicked for being an asshole
you getting ass kicked for being an asshole is Karma

such is life. ... .. circular.
