What The…. Jan Joosten… Pedophile….

22 Jun

This SHOCKS me- and I can’t be shocked by much!

On June 18, 2020, Jan Joosten was sentenced by the Saverne (Bas-Rhin) criminal court to one year in prison for holding thousands of child pornography videos and images.

Via Wikipedia.  Regrettably.  The story in the French press is behind a paywall.  Via Dr. Annette Yoshiko Reed on the twitter.

Ghastly.  Ιησους.  I’ve spent time with Joosten at various conferences.  I never had a clue.  I feel like I’ve been punched in the gut.

UPDATE: Candida Moss tweeted a photo of the story so you can read it yourself:


UPDATE 2: The Guardian has picked up the story.

UPDATE 3: Christ Church, Oxford, has issued a terse statement.
