'Dutch Priest Member of Pedophile club'

The head of a Catholic religious order in the Netherlands has revealed that one of his subordinate priests served in an organization infamous for backing pedophilia.

Herman Spronck, the head of the Dutch arm of the Salesian order, said on Friday that one of his assistant priests worked for the "Martijn" organization, which has been assailed for its campaign to legalize child abuse, the Associated Press reported.

"Of course we reject this and distance ourselves from this personal initiative," Spronck said in a statement. "Membership in such organizations does not fit with the ethos of the Salesian order."
