Authorities said John Balyo of WCSG (91.3 FM) was arrested Friday at a Christian music festival in Gaylord. He's being transported to Battle Creek to face the charge Monday in a Calhoun County court.

Balyo, 35, is accused of paying another man to arrange sex with minors. Authorities searched his home in Caledonia, south of Grand Rapids.

WCSG is a Christian station affiliated with Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids. General Manager Chris Lemke said the staff is "shocked and deeply saddened" by Balyo's arrest, and he promises to say more on the radio Monday morning.

Shocked and saddened? Seriously? How about outraged and sickened?

Look how they file lawsuits against gun makers. Why doesn't the same effort go into filing lawsuits against Hollywood and the porn industry? The millions of sexually driven advertising targeted at young people by the time are 18 just desensitizes and rewires their brains - and the next thing ya know - they become pervs. And then we scratch our heads like a bunch of dumb apes and wonder what happened. If 1 million people would just flood the courts with lawsuits against Hollywood and the porn industry like they just did to the gun makers - this would all stop cold turkey. This is never going to stop though. The Michigan Dept of Corrections receives 75 inmates freshly convicted per week from 83 counties at the Egler Reception Center for the MDOC. 5 to 7 every week are convicted like they guy above. They include teachers, parapros, principals, counselors, camp directors, youth leaders every week in the past and will continue next week and next year. They system just keeps turning and turning and turning and turning. Life goes on - just shake our heads and go to work Monday and repeat the processes.

Too funny! As abhorrent as the adult porn industry is, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with child porn. Nor does it influence it in any way. Pedophiles are in a totally different category..... So very much worse than adult abusers.....they cannot and should not be compared....or EVER forgiven.
