Church Still Paying Pastor Convicted Of Pedophilia

Vancouver: A youth pastor convicted of pedophilia in Mexico is still being paid by his parish.

Brad Firth, the former supervisor of youth activities at St. David's Anglican Church in Tsawwassen, has been receiving "compassionate pay" since being arrested in Mexico in 2004. The parish is also covering his legal fees.

Firth was convicted in June of sexually abusing a 14-year-old Mexican boy who attended a Bible camp at the Ensenada church in 2001.
