It is intriguing that when the topic here is the sexual abuse of children that some would like to silence or restrict that!!!
Why is that?

Gainsford found guilty on 22 charges
The Press.  Christchurch, New Zealand:Oct 28, 2006.  p. A; 3
Former Salvation Army captain John Francis Gainsford has been found guilty of
22 indecency and rape charges.
He was found not guilty of one charge of indecency in the High Court in Timaru
last night.
Gainsford, 69, of Auckland, had pleaded guilty to four counts of indecency, but
not guilty to 23 counts of indecency and rape.
The jury in Timaru retired at 11.40am yesterday and returned about 10 hours
later with the verdicts.
Eight complainants-- seven females and a male -- alleged the offences occurred
in the 1970s when Gainsford managed a former Salvation Army children's home at
Temuka, South Canterbury.
In his summing up Justice Fogarty said Gainsford's confession to four counts
should not sway the jury about the other charges.
