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.
