The Rev. John M. Fiala is accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy several times -- including twice at gunpoint between 2007 and 2008 -- when he was a pastoral administrator at Sacred Heart of Mary Parish in Rocksprings, Texas. The story -- in today's Star -- gets even worse.

Fiala, who used to be a Catholic priest with KCK's Archdiocese between 2001 and 2002, is accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill the boy. Isn't that what Jesus would do?



Fiala, 52, was reportedly arrested last week after trying to hire a hit man (read: undercover cop) to off the teen. Add charges of criminal solicitation to commit capital murder to his tab, which includes several counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

You're probably wondering if Fiala was a problem during his time in KCK. Officials with the Archdiocese told the Star that there were "no complaints" about Fiala during his time there. Not real comforting considering the amount of abuse that goes unreported -- and since this guy is accused of assaulting a boy at gunpoint.
