An 11th-Century Scandal
“Listen, you do-nothing superiors of clerics and priests. Listen, and even though you feel sure of yourselves, tremble at the thought that you are partners in the guilt of others; those, I mean, who wink at the sins of their subjects that need correction and who by ill-considered silence allow them license to sin. Listen, I say, and be shrewd enough to understand that all of you alike are deserving of death, that is, not only those who do such things, but also they who approve those who practice them (Rom 1:32).”
Drawing on the model that the bishop or priest is married to the church, Damian accused both those who sexually abused the people under their care and those who allowed such abuse to take place with the crime of spiritual incest. But whereas biological parents who committed incest were subject in the Middle Ages to excommunication and exile, Damian felt that bishops who betrayed their spiritual children deserved a harsher penalty. Their betrayal ran deeper.
Unfortunately, Pope Leo IX disagreed with Peter Damian’s analysis of the problem of clerical sexual abuse. He was willing to punish clerics who committed acts of anal intercourse with boys and adolescents, but he minimized the punishment of clerics who performed other sexual acts with children and adults of both sexes.
Shortly after the election of Pope Nicholas II (1058-61), Damian called attention to the issue again. His complaint to the new pope has a modern sound: Indeed, in our day the genuine custom of the Roman Church seems to be observed in this way, that regarding other practices of ecclesiastical discipline, a proper investigation is held; but a prudent silence is maintained concerning clerical sexuality for fear of insults from the laity. Damian urged the pope to bring the issue out into the open and to punish both the sexual offenders and the bishops who failed in their duty to punish and to depose sexual predators. He complained that occasionally priests were disciplined, but with bishops we pay our reverence with silent tolerance, which is totally absurd.
According to Damian, punishing those who hold positions of authority and oversight is the only way to restore credibility in times of scandal. Damian recounted the story of the Old Testament priest Phinehas. Finding one of the most prominent Israelite chiefs having sex with a Midianite prostitute, Phinehas exposed the pair to the people as they were having sex and skewered them with a spear. By this action Phinehas imitated God’s justice and sent the message that the laws would be enforced.
Damian notes that most of the Israelite men around Phinehas were consorting with prostitutes. Yet Phinehas struck down only the most powerful and socially prominent offenders. The conclusion to be drawn is that the powerful should be held to a higher standard. Thus in Nm 25:4, when Eli failed to punish his son, God struck him down. His inaction brought the priesthood into disrepute. Likewise, Damian asserted, when the magisterial hierarchy fails to enforce discipline, they undermine the legitimacy of the ecclesiastical office.
Eli was stripped of his power, privileges and wealth. Damian believed the bishops should also lose the trappings of episcopal office. He predicted that God’s agents for stripping the bishops of the wealth and privileges they had taken for granted would be the laity. The laity had granted the clergy temporal authority and wealth; so when the clergy failed in their spiritual mission, it was the laity that had the duty to take these things back, in collaboration with reformers in the clergy and religious orders.
Women held the lowest place in the church during the 11th century, but Damian believed that they too had a duty to correct the clergy. Their inclusion by him in the process of reforming even the highest members of the clergy illustrates Damian’s view that all in the church have the duty to correct their superiors publicly when they see serious sin or deviations from tradition. Virtue and power were not determined by a person’s sex. Rather, virtue is a gift from God.
So in 1064 Damian wrote to Duchess Adelaide of Turin, urging her to use her political power to address problems related to clerical sexual abuse. Using language that may seem offensive to us, he praised God for making Adelaide as strong as a man and drew upon a host of biblical citations, including the examples of Deborah, Jael, Judith, Esther, Abigail and other women who corrected and punished weak, evil or fearful men, to justify her action in reforming the male members of the clergy. The scriptural stories proved that God sometimes chooses women to be instruments of a more glorious triumph.
At the very least, Damian’s story calls into question the practice of covering up sins as a means to avoid scandal. It also provides a road map for church leaders to recover credibility by disciplining the bishops who have enabled sexual predators to damage the most vulnerable members of the people of God. And if the magisterial hierarchy proves unable to reform itself on these matters, St. Peter Damian offers a Catholic model of collaborative reform that includes the laity, religious, deacons and priests. Most important, his story shows that we have overcome sexual abuse scandals in the past by upholding faithfulness to our tradition and maintaining vigilance against corruption.

A priest abuse victims/survivors Letter to Pope Francis, English Version, translation of Italian Letter
This is the English translation of the blog posting La lettera di una vittima di abuso al sacerdote Papa Francesco in Italiano
Hey Pope Francis, how does it feel to proclaim yourself the representative of Jesus and God, while protecting all of your Pedophile Pimp Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops who covered up the mass rapes and abuses of children? Do you think the one you claim to represent, Jesus would do the same thing? Do you think Pope Francis that Jesus would stand up and defend and protect those who did this? Do you think Jesus would call them Holy?
Your own Roman Catholic Catechism speaks of rape as follows: PART THREE: LIFE IN CHRIST; SECTION TWO: THE TEN COMMANDMENTS; CHAPTER TWO: “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF”; ARTICLE 6:THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT; Offenses against chastity: 2356 Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them.
Do you believe, Pope Francis, that the rapes and tortures of hundreds of thousands of children throughout the world, perpetrated upon them by your own priests of your Roman Catholic Church, is in accordance with your teachings of your own Catechism, or the words of your Jesus?
Do you believe Pope Francis, that all the children and teens, who were raped, tortured, enslaved, brutalized, used as medical experiments including forced sterilization, in your Roman Catholic Institutions, like the Magdalene and Good Shepherd Laundries, the Industrial Homes such as Artane and Bindoon, the Women’s and Children’s Homes such as Taum and the First Nation Industrial Schools, was in keeping with the teachings of your Catechism and Jesus Christ?
You asked us not too long ago to accept your apologies and forgive you and your church for what was done to us. Yet how can we forgive you and your church? For to be forgiven, according to your bible and the teachings, you must truly repent of all your sins and crimes.
Yet how do those of us, whom were raped and had our souls stolen from us, whom committed suicide because of it, can give him forgiveness, or any of us so harmed, when he refuses to clean house of all the Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops whom covered up these evil crimes and are still sitting in the positions that they are in?
How can Paul Anthony Carson, whom upon seeing the priest whom raped him walking down the street and then going home and hanging himself, being found by his parents, forgive him?
How can Emma Foster, whom was raped by Father Kevin O’Donnell, while at a primary school whom committed suicide because of it, forgive him?
How can Daniel Neill, whom committed suicide because of his rapist priest, Joseph Gallagher, forgive him?
How can the 30 boys raped at the St Alipius primary school, whom committed suicide forgive him for their rapes?
How can Lou Pirona, Bill Zeller, David M. Jarobe Jr,Kathleen McGonigle, Eric Patterson, Bobby Thompson, Paul Tafolla, Daniel Romney, Gilbert Rodriguez, Eduardo Ramon Boehland, or those whom for the bell was rung 170 times at Church of Our Savior on Wilshire Boulevard, whom committed suicide in the United States, or any of the other victims, throughout the world, who were raped, tortured, brutalized by your priests, brothers, nuns and sisters, of your church, who committed suicide, forgive you and your church Pope Francis?
They cannot, they are dead, rotting in their graves, because of not only their rapes by priests and brothers, of your Roman Catholic Church, but because of the continued attack against us victims and survivors, by your Church, by your Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops, by such demented people like Bill Donohue of the Catholic League, and by those who sit in the pews of your Church. We have been branded as liars, gold diggers out looking for a payday from your church. We have been told because we did not punch our rapists in the face, while they were raping us, that means we not only wanted to be raped, we enjoyed being raped and are homosexuals because of it. Or that we seduced our rapist. Or how one of your priests, Father Richard Ross whom said he has no empathy for any victim who could not stop what was happening to them, and how he would like to take victims into a room and beat them with a baseball bat to show them what true pain and suffering is.
Why should we, or anyone forgive you Pope Francis and your church? Why should we or anyone forgive all of your Cardinals, like Timothy Dolan, Donald Wuerl, George Pell, Roger Mahony, Raymond Burke, Bernard Law, or any of your Archbishops and Bishops, who covered up and protected these degenerate rapists, torturers and abusers of children, who moved them from parish to parish, across state lines, and international country lines, to avoid detection, arrest and prosecution?
How can we, or why should we forgive you all, when you use your Church lawyers, to fight us every step of the way and deny us justice by using the statute of limitations to get our cases dismissed when we seek justice for the evil crimes committed against us, by your priests and others of your Roman Catholic Church? Or your Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops, using Roman Catholics in our legislature, to fight tooth and nail any changes to the statute of limitations, or the opening of a window for victims to come forward and seek justice?
Cardinal Timothy Dolan, showed us all how this church truly feels towards us victims, especially when we seek justice for the crimes committed against us by your church. When New York passed the same sex marriage law, Cardinal Dolan cried about how he felt betrayed by the State of New York for doing so. Yet, in the same breath, he cried and said the following over New York wanting to change the ONE YEAR statute of limitations against child rape and abuse: He stated he wanted the one year statute of limitations against child rape to be kept because if the church gets sued, “The perpetrators don’t suffer. There’s no burden on them. What suffers are the services and the ministries of the apostolates that we’re doing now. Because where does the money come from? So the bishops of 30 years ago that allegedly may have reassigned abusers, they don’t suffer. They’re dead. So the people that suffer are those who are being served right now by the church. We feel that’s a terribly unjust burden.”
Notice that Pope Francis? Read his words and put yourself in the place of the victims. Not one word about our unjust burdens, not one word about our pain and suffering. Not one word about the evil horrors what we have had to suffer through in our lives, horrors that have provoked many of us, to commit suicide.
And, Cardinal Dolan lied in his statement. Most of those Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops who covered up these crimes against children, are not dead, they are still alive, protected and defended at all costs by your church. Cardinal Bernard Law, George Pell, Timothy Dolan, Roger Mahony, Donald Wuerl, and many others, are in fact, still alive. They all participated in these cover ups, they all participated in the moving around dangerous pedophile priests, to avoid detection and arrest for their crimes against us.
You, Pope Francis, are also guilty of these same crimes. As in relation to Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski and others. You, Pope Francis, KNEW what Archbishop Wesolowski had done to the children in the Dominican Republic. You KNEW he was paying street children to have sex with him, and to take pornographic pictures of them. You, Pope Francis, had him brought to the Vatican in Rome, knowing that once you did? He was then protected under the sovereign immunity of the Vatican, that this would prevent his arrest and prosecution of him by the officials of the Dominican Republic
You, Pope Francis, KNEW he was a danger to children and others, yet YOU did not put him in a jail cell when you had him recalled to the Vatican. And while Wesolowski had his freedom, for over a year and a half, he continued his crimes against children. He continued to pay children for sex, he continued to take pornographic pictures and even videos of his criminal acts against children, and it has been proven that some of these children died a horrible death because of it.
A dossier accusing Wesolowski of sex abuse of minors was sent to Pope Francis “sometime in July” 2013 by Santo Domingo Cardinal Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez. The pope found the information credible enough to dismiss Wesolowski on August 21 via confidential letter. But the pope never reported Wesolowski to civil authorities nor made the information public.
All prelates should make credible allegations public as a warning to avoid contact with the accused. Also, any other victims should be encouraged to contact a law enforcement agency perhaps making the investigation easier, apprehension and prosecution more certain. The group, Survivors’ Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), defines failure to take these steps as a “cover up.”
Wesolowski left the country before a local TV program broadcast an exposé on August 31. It was reported in January 2014 that Wesolowski “is now thought to be living in Rome and is protected from extradition by diplomatic immunity.” “For me it was a surprise to see Wesolowski walking along Via della Scrofa in Rome,” Santo Domingo Auxiliary Bishop Víctor Masalles tweeted on June 24, 2014.
Embarrassed, the Vatican announced on June 27 that Wesolowski had been laicized (defrocked) “in the past few days … Measures will be taken so he is in a precise restricted location, without any freedom of movement,” said Vatican spokesman, Fr. Federico Lombardi, without specifying how this would be accomplished. The press reported this as proof of the pope’s “zero tolerance” for child sex abuse.
November 22, 2014: Wesolowski was seen “walking quietly inside the Vatican City…in apparent freedom” and is presumed to still live there under house arrest. This proves to us that Fr. Federico Lombardi lied to us, as is usual with the Roman Catholic Church when it concerns their pedophiles.
Defrocking means a cleric is fired without being reported to the police. The most serious punishment available to the pope is excommunication. Pope Francis excommunicated an Australian priest for supporting women’s ordination and same sex marriage. He also excommunicated the leaders of the lay group, We Are Church, for celebrating mass in their home.
But, did you excommunicate Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, Pope Francis? No you did not. It is apparent to us victims of your crimes of your church against us, that you find a priest saying women should be ordinated, and one who supports same sex marriage, or a lay group having mass in their homes, more worthy of excommunication, than a pedophile, who paid children for sex, raped them, or possessed over 100,000 child pornographic images and videos of child porno on their computer.
You, Pope Francis, have proven to us, the victims and those who fight for us, that you are just like the rest. That you will protect and defend those who rape children, instead of standing up to them, instead of standing up for the victims. That you will protect and defend the pedophiles and the pedophile pimps, like Pope Emeritus Bendict XVI and the Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops who covered these crimes up, and it is business as usual on this matter. To deny us victims any rights to justice for the crimes committed against us by your church.
The UN Committee against Torture “found that the widespread sexual violence within the Catholic Church amounted to torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.” After Vatican officials were called to Geneva in May 2014 to respond to tough questions like why the pope believed his responsibility for protecting children against torture only applied on Vatican property, the committee issued its report.
The members “ordered the Vatican to hand over files containing details of clerical sexual abuse allegations to police forces around the world, … to use its authority over the Roman Catholic Church worldwide to ensure all allegations of clerical abuse are passed on to the secular authorities and to impose ‘meaningful sanctions’ on any Church officials who fail to do so.” With the exception of a couple of staged PR events, the pope has refused to take any of these measures.
The Vatican had issued an “Initial Report” preparatory to the hearing. “Nowhere in the Holy See’s [the name of the Church’s global government] Initial Report under the Convention does it make any mention of the widespread and systemic rape and sexual violence committed by Catholic clergy against hundreds of thousands of children and vulnerable adults around the world. There is no mention of acts that have resulted in an astonishing and incalculable amount of harm around the world – profound and lasting physical and mental suffering – with little to no accountability and access to redress …[T]he Vatican has consistently minimized the harm caused by the actions of the clergy, through both the direct acts of sexual violence and Church officials’ actions which follow, such as cover-ups and victim-blaming. … The Holy See’s Initial Report to this Committee is itself evidence of the minimization of these offenses and the resulting harm.
The Committee against Torture report came “after senior officials sought to distance the Vatican legally from the wider Church … saying priests were not legally tied to the Vatican but fell under national jurisdictions. But the committee insisted that officials of the Holy See – including the pope’s representatives around the world and their aides – have a responsibility to monitor the behavior of all under their ‘effective control.’”
The following faces and statement proves, Pope Francis, that you are just like the rest, when it comes time for standing up to the pedophiles, those who rape children, from your church. How you do not truly care one bit about the victims, but the defense and protection of your church and its pedophiles.
As archbishop of Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio “refused to meet with victims, and he stayed largely silent on the issue of clergy sex abuse, except to issue a surprising denial that he had ever handled an abusive priest. His only known action was to commission a behind-the-scenes report to judges that sought exoneration of a criminally convicted priest by impugning the credibility of the priest’s victims.”
Then, one month to the day after you were elected Pope, you appointed a group of Cardinals, referred to as your C9, to be your closest advisors. And who are some of the members of your C9 advisors?
Cardinal George Pell: As archbishop and creator of the “Melbourne Response,” a system “designed to control the victims and protect the Church … Pell intended to minimize the crimes, conceal the truth, manipulate and intimidate the victims. … Some relatives of abused children have called the cardinal a ‘sociopath.’” Pell personally knows hundreds of the people involved – the victims and their families as well as the abusers. … He was a very senior authority in the Catholic Church when the court cases began in the 1990s and the top Catholic figure in Australia until he went to Rome. … [H]e was the leader of a system that protected the guilty and failed innocent people. … [H]e was the man in charge during many years of this scandal. Therefore, he can be held accountable and responsible for it.”
Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz Ossa: Errazuriz had made national headlines for protecting Fr. Fernando Karadima, the “worst scandal” of the Chilean Church. “Power is the true point of the case. The [sexual abuses against children] were not possible without a network of political, social and religious power working for 50 years,” stated political analyst Ascanio Cavallo, Dean of the Journalism School of the Adolfo Ibáñez University. Church officials were warned as early as 1984 about Karadima’s “improper conduct.” The first
known reports to reach Errazuriz were in 2003. In 2006, a priest appointed by Errázuriz to investigate the claims reported to the cardinal that he believed “the accusers to be credible.” According to court testimony in a 2011 civil complaint filed against Karadima, Church officials, including Errázuriz, tried to shame accusers into dropping claims, refused to meet with them and failed to carry out formal investigations for years. A judge dismissed the criminal case against Karadima in November 2011 because the statute of limitations had expired but also determined that the allegations were “truthful and reliable.
And, when you Pope Francis appointed Errázuriz to your C9 advisors, one of the victims stated that this appointment “a shame and a disgrace.” On September 15, 2013, Errázuriz said that the archdiocese had no responsibility for their “tremendous pain.”
Yes, Pope Francis, again, we have from the mouths of one of your own advisors, one who covered up for pedophile priests, that you, your church has no responsibility for their “tremendous pain.” But, Pope Francis, who does then bear the responsibility for the tremendous pain and suffering, the unjust burdens and the horror the victims of rape committed against them by the priests of the Roman Catholic Church? Is it the victims themselves? Because it sure seems like it when it comes to this Church of yours.
Then Pope Francis, when the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC)requested of you, for “detailed information on all cases of child sexual abuse committed by members of the clergy, brothers or nun” for the past fifteen years and set November 1 as a deadline for a reply. The questions were sent as preparation for a public hearing scheduled for January. What did you say and do about this request?
First, a little background. As one of the signatories to the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Church was fifteen years late in delivering a report describing whether it had acted to “protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence” as the convention requires. Additionally, the questionnaire sought to establish whether “perpetrators of sexual crimes” were allowed to remain in contact with children, what legal action was taken against them and whether reporting of suspected abuse was mandatory. It also included queries about support for victims, and any incidents where complainants were silenced.
And what was yours and the Vaticans response to this? You, Pope Francis and the Vatican warned that it might pull out of the Convention on the Rights of the Child if pushed too hard on the issue. In a report of its own posted on the UN website last October, the Holy See reminded the CRC of reservations on legal jurisdiction and other issues it made when it signed the global pact. It said any new “interpretation” would give it grounds “for terminating or withdrawing” from the treaty.
And then what did you do Pope Francis? On July 11, 2013, the pontiff enacted a civil law criminalizing leaks of Vatican information to the press and sexual violence against children, including child pornography. The crimes were punishable by up to eight and twelve years in prison, respectively. The law was applicable inside the Vatican City State and for employees of the Holy See in its extraterritorial properties including embassies.
How did you respond to the CRC request Pope Francis? On December 4 by your stating that it was not the practice of his government to “disclose information on specific cases unless requested to do so by another country as part of legal proceedings” and “that the Vatican can provide information only about known and alleged child sex crimes that have happened on Vatican property.”
Then Pope Francis, as an added slap to the faces of the victims, what did you do? On January 16, 2014, the day the CRC hearings were to begin in Geneva, you, Pope Francis again showed your contempt for your Church’s victims by celebrating mass, followed by a private meeting, with Cardinal Roger Mahony, archbishop emeritus of Los Angeles. The Washington Post (among others) had condemned Mahony for protecting known abusers, stating he’s “lucky not to be in prison” and that “his continued prominence reflects the culture of impunity in the Catholic Church a decade after its tolerance and complicity in the abuse of children was exposed.” After your private meeting with you, Mahony blogged “the topic of scandal never came up.”
The same day, Lombardi said the Church had developed “a series of initiatives and directives” that are “extremely helpful” to other communities. He also criticized the assumption that bishops or religious superiors act “as representatives or delegates of the Pope.” He said this belief is “utterly without foundation.” Rather, civil authorities in countries that have signed the UN convention are directly responsible for its implementation and for the enforcement of laws that protect children.
The UN panel asked Vatican representatives for responses to the questions they had sent in July. While the American media trumpeted a statement made by one of the Vatican officials that he “gets it,” the foreign press was not as fawning:
Germany’s Deutsche Welle: Vatican response ‘fails smell test for ordinary people’
Venezuela’s El Nacional: The Vatican at the UN today dodged providing detailed information on issues relating to sexual abuse of minors by clergy in a rhetorical exercise in which it attempts to demonstrate determination to prevent new offenses
Spain’s El Pais: The Vatican still does not take responsibility for sexual abuse
BishopAccountability.org noted four significant moments of the hearing:
1. For the first time, the Vatican had to admit publicly that it still does not require the reporting of child sex crimes to civil authorities. Nor does it take this step when priests are defrocked.
2. The Holy See still refused to provide the data requested on July 1.
3. The Vatican believes that it is the obligation of the individual perpetrator, not the Church, to compensate victims.
4. Religious orders, which comprise one third to one half of the world’s Catholic clerics, still are not being compelled by the Holy See to create abuse policies. (Pope Benedict XVI ordered the world’s bishops to do this in 2011. The order was widely ignored, even by the cardinal archbishop of Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio.)
Then, Pope Francis, we now show how your Vatican, yourself and other mouthpieces for your church, played the look the other way game of subterfuge and deception. Of blaming others, and saying hey, look at what they are doing, why are you picking on us?
Vatican delegate to the UN, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, responded in an interview: “At the same time we have to keep in mind that even though there are so many millions, forty million cases of abuse a year regarding children, unfortunately some cases affect also Church personnel.” Tomasi also suggested that the UN committee may have been influenced by “Some NGOs that support homosexuality, same-sex marriage and other issues probably presented their own views and ended up reinforcing [the committee’s] line of thought in some way.”
And then you came out with this statement Pope Francis, KNOWING it was a lie, because your church has been anything BUT moving with transparency and responsibility. The only responsibility yourself, the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church has far proven by your actions, is that you are to protect your church at all costs.
On March 5, 2014, you, Pope, stated that, as regards the sexual torture of children, “The statistics on the phenomenon of violence against children are shocking, but they also show clearly that the great majority of the abuses come from the family environment and from people who are close. The Catholic Church is perhaps the only public institution that moved with transparency and responsibility. No one else did as much. And yet,the Church is the only one being attacked.”
If your words Pope Francis and the rest were truth? Then such people like Cardinal Bernard Law, George Pell Timothy Dolan, Roger Mahony, Donald Wuerl and the others who covered up these crimes against children, who helped perpetuate these crimes against children, who protected the pedophiles over the children, would have been excommunicated and turned over to authorities for prosecution.
If your words Pope Francis were truth, then you would not have recalled Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski back to the Vatican, so he could be protected from the authorities in the Dominican Republic. You would have turned him over for prosecution for the crimes against children he committed there, instead of allowing him sovereign immunity by bringing him to the Vatican to be protected so.
If your words were truth, Pope Francis, then you would not have loaded your C9 advisory committee with known Pedophile Pimps, like George Pell and others, against whom, there is overwhelming evidence against them they participated in the cover ups of the rapes and abuses of children.
If your words were truth Pope Francis, then your church would NOT be denying victims of these crimes justice. Your church and the lawyers you buy would NOT be denying us victims justice by using the statute of limitations against us. Nor would they be fighting any changes to the statute of limitations, or the opening of a window for victims to come forward and seek justice for the crimes committed against us.
If your words were truth Pope Francis, you would NOT be allowing us victims, to be re-victimized, by the attacks done against us.
You would NOT be allowing Bill Donohue, of the Catholic League to attack us victims like he does, insulting us, denigrating us, defaming us. All the evil he has said against us victims, he is one who deserves excommunication. You, Pope Francis, would call Bill Donohue out, for his proclaiming how we victims are nothing but liars, gold diggers, out looking for a pay day from the church. For his comparing the horror, the terror, the pain and suffering of us victims, who were brutally raped, by your priests, not only of our bodies, but of our souls, our minds and our hearts, to his being slapped on the wrist by a nun when he acted out.
For his lying about one victim, proclaiming him as part of a drug gang murder, and how the police department covered it up, when the victim in fact, testified in a drug murder, putting his life at great risk in doing so. And because of Bill Donohue actions and words, that victim now is in fear of his life, having received death threats, and other threats as well as being beaten for his standing up and doing the right thing in testifying in a drug gang murder. The victim is now suing Bill Donohue and the Catholic League for defamation and other civil actions and yet, YOU Pope Francis has not ever stepped in and put a stop to Bill Donohue and his attacks against the victims of priest rape.
If you were speaking the truth Pope Francis, then when The United Nations Committees on the Rights of the Child and on Torture, requested the Holy See to abolish the pontifical secret for allegations of child sexual abuse, and to order through canon law mandatory reporting to the civil authority. Then in September of 2014, YOU would not have rejected that request and told them you did so on the grounds that mandatory reporting would interfere with the sovereignty of independent States. Mandatory reporting would only interfere with such sovereignty if a State law prohibited reporting of clergy sex abuse of children to the police. No such State exists.
But the Vatican … illustrates its very real intention to interfere in the sovereignty of independent States by prohibiting reporting once canonical proceedings start, even when the civil law requires reporting. …
The de facto privilege of clergy by the use of secrecy, rendering clergy immune to civil prosecution for child sex abuse, was set up in 1922 by Pope Pius XI, and was continued and expanded by five of his successors. Regrettably, it seems that you, Pope Francis have given every indication of adding yourself to the list as the seventh pope.
If you were speaking the truth, Pope Francis, then you would not have appointed Juan Barros Madrid as Bishop of Osorno, Chile. Did you not get the hint, Pope Francis, that on the day that Barros was installed as Bishop, amid riot police, and hundreds of parishioners,dressed in the black of mourning denounced Barros, that they all knew what Barros had done and instead of supporting him, you should never have made him a Bishop?
If you are speaking truth Pope Francis then why did you ignore Archbishop Chomali? We know, in an interview published March 26, the Archbishop of Concepcion disclosed the details of a meeting he had with Pope Francis on March 6. “Archbishop Chomali explained that he gave Pope Francis a ‘document with detailed information on the consequences of the appointment he had made. All the documentation that I cited came to him, whether through the nunciature or the Chilean embassy to the Holy See. He was very much up to date on Bishop Barros’ situation, and in fact a few days prior he had spoken with him. With firmness and much conviction he told me that he had analyzed all the past records and that there was no objective reason that Bishop Barros should not be installed as diocesan bishop.’”
No, Pope Francis, you do not speak the truth, for your actions speak much louder than words do. You talk a good PR talk, but your other words and actions do not match with the PR propaganda you are putting out. Yes, Pope Francis, I am in fact, calling you a two-faced, liar and charlatan. I speak the truth when I say this. Something you and the rest of your Pedophile Pimps, cannot even begin to do.
You, Pope Francis, disgust me along with all of your Pedophile Pimp Popes, Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops. For you are just like them all, you are a degenerate in my book, you are just as responsible for the rapes, tortures, enslavement, abuses, and other crimes against children, as all the rest. You, Pope Francis, are NO Holy Man of God, nor are YOU a representative of Jesus Christ on earth. You are as sick and twisted, as much a pervert, as much a criminal as all the rest of your fellow Pedophile Pimps.
You, Pope Francis are one of the lowest forms of life on the planet. Even the contents of a well used outhouse has more use than you do, and deserves a lot more respect to boot. You protect your cult of Pedophiles and Pedophile Pimps, just like the rest of them.

Cronin, and many, many others. You all stand guilty of Crimes Against Humanity and the Children of the World.
You, Pope Francis, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, all of your above named Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops, stand guilty, before your God and Jesus Christ, whom you proclaim to follow, to be representatives of on this Earth, through your Roman Catholic Church, of heinous crimes against children throughout the world.
You, Pope Francis ask us to forgive you. Why should we? Why should anyone forgive you, or your church and what you all have done to us?
NONE OF YOU HAVE TRULY REPENTED FOR ALL THE CRIMES AND EVILS YOU AND YOUR CHURCH HAS DONE AGAINST US!!!!THEREFOR, NEITHER CAN WE, NOR EVEN YOUR OWN GOD AND JESUS CHRIST FORGIVE YOU, UNLESS YOU TRULY AND HONESTLY REPENT OF ALL OF THIS EVIL YOU HAVE DONE TO CHILDREN, THROUGHOUT THE CENTURIES OF WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO THEM. TO BE FORGIVEN YOU MUST ALL TRULY REPENT, SEEING YOU HAVE NOT DONE THAT, THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO ASK ANYONE FOR FORGIVENESS…..NOT US VICTIMS WHO WENT THROUGH THIS HORROR, NOR YOUR GOD AND JESUS IN WHICH YOU ALL PROCLAIM TO BE REPRESENTATIVES OF!!!
Pope Francis, the one YOU proclaim to represent upon earth, as the Vicar of Christ, then his words apply much more to you and the rest of your Cardinals, Archbishops and Bishops, even more than it applies to the rest of us. For YOU are supposed to be holy men of god, and the leaders of what you proclaim the one true church of Jesus Christ.
Well the one YOU proclaim to represent, Pope Francis, Jesus said in the bible, the book YOU all proclaim to be the true word of the true God, the following: Mark 9:42: 42″Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea. And in Luke 17: 1-2: 1He said to His disciples, “It is inevitable that stumbling blocks come, but woe to him through whom they come! 2″It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble.
It looks like, Pope Francis, that you and the rest of your Pedophile Pimps ought to invest in a company that makes strong, sturdy rope and does a lot of millstones. For if I were you? I would start tying ropes around your neck and attaching it to millstones and find a great portion of the sea to toss your bodies into. That has to be a whole lot better than having to deal with the ones you proclaim to represent, Jesus Christ is going to do to your souls once you get before him in my opinion.
In closing Pope Francis, because we who were raped, tortured, brutalized, enslaved, and destroyed by your church and its pedophiles and abusers, have the guts to stand up and speak out against all the crimes committed against us and demand justice, we are branded as bigots, haters, and even worse. We are told time and time again, because we dare speak out, that we are all bound for hell. That because we DARE insult you all, that we do not hold any respect for ones such as yourselves, that we are the ones who deserve to burn in hell.
Many of us have already done our time in hell though Pope Francis. Our pains and sufferings, our nightmares, our horrors have sent us into hell and quite a few of us have come out on the other side of it, much stronger, than the victims we once were. We are now STRONG SURVIVORS.
Though some of us did not make it, our pain and suffering and horror and the continued treatment of evil against us by your Roman Catholic Church, caused some of them to blow their brains out, or hang themselves, or commit suicide in other ways.
And some are still hiding in the shadows, too afraid to come out and speak, about the crimes committed against them, by the priests, brothers, nuns and sisters and all the others of your church. Who are still silent, because they fear you still, they fear their rapists and the mind tortures they were put through by them while they were being raped and brutalized, realize this Pope Francis!!!
We the strong survivors are MANY. We do NOT fear you, nor your church, nor your Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops. We do not fear the pew polishers, who insult and denigrate and threaten us. We do not fear Bill Donohue of the Catholic League or anyone else who attacks us.
We will stand and speak out, we will hold you all to your crimes. We will speak out and expose them where ever we go and whenever we are called upon to do so. We will stand up for those victims, who are as yet, still too afraid to speak out. We will defend them, and ourselves, against you, your other leaders and all who attack us and defend your church for all of the crimes committed against us.
We WILL continue to demand justice. We WILL continue to demand the arrest and prosecution of each and every one of you who covered up these crimes against us, who protected and defended the pedophiles, the abusers of us, and we WILL win against you all. You may not think so, you may think that the Roman Catholic Church is untouchable, that no one can make you all pay for your Crimes Against Humanity and the Children of the World.
In a sense, you might be right, that no justice system will be able to make you pay for your crimes, but that is in fact changing and I believe that soon the United Nations will have their say and you will be prosecuted by them.
But then, one day, you will have to stand before the ULTIMATE JUDGE, the ones you all proclaim to follow and represent on this plane of existence. And I think when you do? You will surely wish you HAD tied a huge millstone around your neck and thrown yourselves into the deepest of seas, compared to the punishments YOU will be facing before the Judge you call God and Jesus Christ.
I believe, they will show you more mercy, by sending you straight to the 9th Level of Dante Inferno, than all of you have to us, the survivors of your evil, criminal cult of Pedophile Pimps, Pedophile Priests, Abusive Nuns and all the Parishioner Pew Polishers of your Roman Catholic Church.
FROM ONE WHO WENT FROM A SCARED VICTIM, TO A STRONG SURVIVOR.
FRANK J LAFERRIERE
La lettera di una vittima di abuso al sacerdote Papa Francesco in Italiano
Note an English Version of this Letter to Pope Francis shall be published in a blog right after this one.
Hey Papa Francesco, come ci si sente di annunciare da soli il rappresentante di Gesù e di Dio, mentre la protezione di tutti i pedofili Pimp i Cardinali, gli Arcivescovi, i vescovi e arcivescovi coperta gli stupri di massa e gli abusi dei bambini? Pensi che quello che affermano di rappresentare, Gesù non sarebbe la stessa cosa? Pensi che il Papa Francesco che Gesù ha voluto difendere e proteggere e difendere chi ha fatto questo? Pensi che Gesù li chiamerà Santo?
Il Catechismo della Chiesa Cattolica Romana parla di stupro come segue: PARTE TERZA: LA VITA IN CRISTO; PARTE SECONDA: I DIECI COMANDAMENTI, CAPITOLO DUE: “AMERAI IL PROSSIMO TUO COME TE STESSO”, ALL’ARTICOLO 6, IL SESTO COMANDAMENTO, i reati contro la castità: 2356 Lo stupro è forzato violazione dell’intimità sessuale di una persona. Non lesioni alla giustizia e alla carità. Stupro ferisce profondamente il rispetto, la libertà e l’integrità fisica e morale di ogni persona ha il diritto.
Credi che il Papa Francesco, che gli stupri e torture di centinaia di migliaia di bambini in tutto il mondo, perpetrati su di loro con la propria dei sacerdoti della Chiesa Cattolica Romana, è in conformità con i dettami del proprio Catechismo, o le parole del vostro Gesù?
Credi che il Papa Francesco, che tutti i bambini e gli adolescenti, che sono state violentate, torturate, ridotto in schiavitù, brutalizzata, utilizzato come esperimenti medici e sterilizzazione forzata, in istituzioni cattoliche, come la Maddalena e Buon Pastore lavanderie industriali, case come Venezia e Bindoon, le donne”s;s e Bambinio’s Case come Taum e la prima nazione industriale nelle scuole, in linea con i dettami del catechismo e Gesù Cristo?
Lei ci aveva chiesto di non troppo tempo fa per accettare le scuse e perdonare voi e la vostra chiesa per quello che è stato fatto per noi. Ma come si può perdonare voi e la vostra chiesa? Per essere perdonato, secondo la bibbia e gli insegnamenti, è necessario pentirsi di tutti i vostri peccati e crimini.
Tuttavia, come pure quelli di noi che sono state violentate e le nostre anime rubato da noi e che si sono suicidati a causa di esso, può dare a lui il perdono, o qualcuno di noi danneggiati, quando si rifiuta di pulire la casa di tutti i Cardinali, i Vescovi e Arcivescovi Metropoliti che coperto questi male crimini, ancora seduto nelle posizioni che sono?
Come Paul Anthony Carson, che dopo aver visto il sacerdote che lo stupro camminare per la strada e poi tornare a casa e appendere stesso, essendo trovato dai suoi genitori, perdonare?
Come Emma Foster, che è stata violentata da Padre Kevin O’Donnell, mentre in una scuola primaria che si sono suicidati perché, perdonare?
Come Daniel Neill, che si sono suicidati a causa del suo stupratore sacerdote, Joseph Gallagher, perdonare?
Come possono i 30 ragazzi violentata nel corso della scuola primaria Sant’Alipio, che si è suicidato lo perdono per i loro stupri?
Come Lou Pirona, Bill Zeller, David M. Jarobe Jr,Kathleen McGonigle, Eric Patterson, Bobby Thompson, Paul Tafolla, Daniel Romney, Gilbert Rodriguez, Eduardo Ramon Boehland, O coloro che per il campanello è suonato 170 volte nella Chiesa del Salvatore sul Wilshire Boulevard, che si sono suicidati negli Stati Uniti, o una qualsiasi delle altre vittime, in tutto il mondo, Che sono state violentate, torturate, brutalizzata dai vostri sacerdoti, religiosi, monache e suore della vostra chiesa, che si è suicidato, perdonare e la vostra chiesa Papa Francesco?
Essi non sono morti, di marciume nelle loro tombe, perché non solo i loro stupri da parte dei sacerdoti e fratelli, della Chiesa Cattolica Romana, ma a causa dei continui attacchi contro di noi le vittime e i superstiti, per la vostra Chiesa, il Cardinali, Vescovi e Arcivescovi, da tali persone dementi come Bill Donohue della Lega Cattolica, E da quelli che siedono nei banchi della Chiesa. Siamo stati bollati come bugiardi, cercatori d’oro in cerca di una paga da la vostra chiesa. Ci è stato detto per non sentire il nostro stupratore di fronte, mentre ci sono stupri, ciò significa che non solo ha voluto essere violentate, per noi è stato un piacere essere violentate e sono gli omosessuali a causa di esso. O che abbiamo conquistato il nostro stupratore. O come uno dei vostri sacerdoti, Padre Richard Ross che ha detto di avere alcuna simpatia per qualsiasi vittima, che non potevano fermare ciò che stava succedendo, e come vorrebbe prendere le vittime in una stanza e batterli con una mazza da baseball per mostrare loro che cosa vero dolore e sofferenza.
Perché noi, o chiunque perdoni Papa Francesco e la chiesa? Perché dovremmo o chiunque perdona tutti i Cardinali, come Timothy Dolan, Donald Wuerl, George Pell, Roger Mahony, Raymond Burke, Bernard Law, O di Arcivescovi e Vescovi, che hanno coperto e protetto questi degenerare gli stupratori, i torturatori e i violentatori di bambini, che li di parrocchia in parrocchia, attraverso le linee statali e internazionali, per evitare di essere scoperti, arrestare e perseguire penalmente?
Come possiamo noi, o perché perdonare tutti, quando si usa la vostra Chiesa gli avvocati, per la lotta contro noi in tutte le fasi del progetto e negare la nostra giustizia, con lo statuto delle limitazioni per il nostro caso respinto quando cerchiamo giustizia per il male i crimini commessi contro di noi, dai vostri sacerdoti e gli altri della Chiesa Cattolica Romana? O i Cardinali, gli Arcivescovi e Vescovi, con i cattolici romani in questa legislatura, di lotta dente e chiodo qualsiasi modifica dello statuto delle limitazioni, o l’apertura di una finestra per le vittime a farsi avanti e chiedere giustizia?
Il Cardinale Timothy Dolan, ha mostrato a noi come la chiesa sente davvero verso di noi, soprattutto quando si cercano giustizia per i crimini commessi contro di noi, la vostra chiesa. Quando New York ha superato il matrimonio tra persone dello stesso sesso, il Cardinale Dolan gridò come si sentiva tradito dallo Stato di New York per farlo. Eppure, nello stesso spirito, egli gridò e disse quanto segue sopra New York vuole cambiare la durata DI UN ANNO di prescrizione contro lo stupro e abusi: Ha dichiarato che ha voluto un anno di prescrizione contro lo stupro a essere mantenuta perché se la chiesa ha citato, “gli autori non soffrono. Non vi è alcun onere. Che cosa soffre sono i servizi e i ministeri dell’apostolato che stiamo facendo ora. Perché dove i soldi? Perciò i vescovi di 30 anni fa che presumibilmente può essere riassegnato i tossicodipendenti, non soffre. Sono morti. Per questo motivo, le persone che soffrono sono coloro che vengono serviti proprio ora dalla chiesa. Riteniamo che un terribilmente ingiusto onere.”
Notare che Papa Francesco? Leggere le sue parole e metta al posto delle vittime. Non una parola sui nostri oneri ingiusti, non una parola sul nostro dolore e della sofferenza. Non una parola circa il male degli orrori che abbiamo dovuto subire a causa della nostra vita, orrori che hanno provocato molti di noi, il suicidio.
E il Cardinale Dolan ha mentito nella sua dichiarazione. La maggior parte di queste Cardinali, Vescovi e Arcivescovi che hanno coperto i crimini contro i bambini, non sono morti, sono ancora vivo, protetto e difeso a tutti i costi la vostra chiesa. Il Cardinale Bernard Law, George Pell, Timothy Dolan, Roger Mahony, Donald Wuerl, e molti altri, sono in realtà ancora viva. Tutti loro hanno partecipato a queste imprese, che hanno partecipato al movimento pericoloso preti pedofili, per evitare il rilevamento e l’arresto per i loro crimini contro noi.
Lei, Santo Padre Francesco, è colpevole di questi stessi crimini. In relazione all’arcivescovo Jozef Wesolowski e altri. Si, il Santo Padre Francesco, era al corrente di ciò che l Arcivescovo Wesolowski aveva fatto per i bambini nella Repubblica Dominicana. Si sapeva che era a pagamento i bambini di strada di avere rapporti sessuali con lui, e di immagini pornografiche. Lei, Santo Padre Francesco, aveva portato in Vaticano a Roma, sapendo che una volta che avete fatto? E’ stato poi protetto sotto l’immunità sovrana del Concilio Vaticano ii, che in tal modo si evita che il suo arresto e la persecuzione penale di lui da parte dei funzionari della Repubblica Dominicana.
Lei, Santo Padre Francesco, sapeva che non era un pericolo per i bambini e gli altri, ma voi non lo mise in una cella nella prigione quando si aveva richiamato in Vaticano.E mentre Wesolowski aveva la sua libertà, per oltre un anno e mezzo, ha continuato i suoi crimini contro i bambini. Ha continuato a pagare i bambini per il sesso, ha continuato a prendere immagini pornografiche e video dei suoi atti criminali contro i bambini, ed è stato dimostrato che alcuni di questi bambini muore una morte orribile a causa di esso.
UN dossier accusa Wesolowski di abuso sessuale dei minori è stato inviato al Santo Padre Francesco “nel mese di luglio” 2013 Santo Domingo il Cardinale Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez. Il papa ha trovato le informazioni sufficientemente credibile per chiudere Wesolowski il 21 Agosto tramite lettera riservata. Ma il papa non ha mai riportato Wesolowski alle autorità civili né reso pubbliche le informazioni.
Tutti i prelati devono rendere credibili le accuse pubblico come un avvertimento per evitare il contatto con gli imputati. Inoltre, tutte le altre vittime dovrebbero essere incoraggiati a contattare un’autorità di perseguimento penale forse che l’inchiesta più semplice, di apprensione e di repressione più certe. Il gruppo, rete dei sopravvissuti di tali abusi di sacerdoti (SNAP), definisce l’inosservanza di tali provvedimenti come un “cover up”.
Wesolowski lasciato il paese di fronte a una TV locale programma trasmesso un documentario sul 31 agosto. È stato riportato nel gennaio 2014 che Wesolowski “è ora in grado di vivere a Roma ed è protetto da estradizione dall immunità diplomatica.” “Per me è stata una sorpresa vedere Wesolowski a piedi lungo Via della Scrofa a Roma, “Santo Domingo Vescovo Ausiliare Víctor Masalles twitter il 24 giugno 2014.
Imbarazzato, il Concilio Vaticano ii ha annunciato il 27 giugno che era stato Wesolowski laicized (spretato) “negli ultimi giorni … misure saranno adottate in modo egli è in una precisa posizione limitata, senza alcuna libertà di movimento,” ha detto portavoce vaticano, p. Federico Lombardi, senza specificare in che modo questo possa essere realizzato. La stampa ha riportato questo come prova del papa’s “tolleranza zero” per lo sfruttamento sessuale dei bambini.
22 Novembre 2014: Wesolowski era visto “camminare tranquillamente all’interno della Città del Vaticano…in apparente libertà” e si presume che vi vivono ancora agli arresti domiciliari. Questo ci dimostra che p. Federico Lombardi ha mentito, come di consueto con la Chiesa Cattolica Romana per quanto riguarda i pedofili
Defrocking significa un chierico è cotta senza essere denunciato alla polizia. La sanzione più grave a disposizione del papa scomunica. Papa Francesco scomunica un sacerdote australiano per sostenere le donne del coordinamento e matrimonio tra persone dello stesso sesso. Anche lui scomunicato i leader del gruppo di laici, siamo Chiesa, per celebrare la messa nella loro casa.
Ma, avete escludessimo arcivescovo Jozef Wesolowski, Papa Francesco? No ma non l’ha fatto. È evidente a noi vittime dei crimini della vostra chiesa contro di noi, che troverà un sacerdote dicendo: “le donne dovrebbero essere coordinati tra loro, e chi sostiene matrimonio tra persone dello stesso sesso, o un gruppo di laici di massa nelle loro case, più degni di scomunica, di un pedofilo, che ha pagato i bambini per il sesso, violentate, o posseduto oltre 100.000 bambini immagini pornografiche e video di bambini porno sul proprio computer.
Lei, Santo Padre Francesco, si è rivelato a noi, le vittime e per chi lotta per noi, che si sono appena come il resto. Di proteggere e difendere chi lo stupro dei bambini, invece di stare in piedi per loro, invece di stare in piedi per le vittime. Di proteggere e difendere i pedofili, e il pedofilo, come Papa Emerito Bendict XVI, i Cardinali, gli Arcivescovi e Vescovi che hanno coperto i crimini, ed è come al solito su questo argomento
Il Comitato dell’ONU contro la Tortura “trovato che il gran numero di violenze sessuali all’interno della Chiesa Cattolica sono ammontate a torture e trattamenti crudeli, inumani e degradanti”. Dopo che alcuni funzionari del Vaticano furono chiamati a Ginevra nel maggio 2014. per rispondere a domande difficili come per questo che il papa ritiene che la sua responsabilità per proteggere i bambini contro la tortura applicata solo sul Concilio Vaticano ii, la commissione ha presentato la sua relazione.
I membri “ha ordinato il Vaticano a mano sul file contenente i dettagli di commesso abuso sessuale accuse alle forze di polizia intorno al mondo, … di utilizzare la sua autorità sulla Chiesa Cattolica Romana nel mondo al fine di garantire che tutte le accuse di abusi clericali sono passati alla autorità laiche e di imporre sanzioni “significativa” su qualsiasi i funzionari della Chiesa che non è in grado di farlo.” Con l’eccezione di un paio di in scena eventi PR, il papa ha rifiutato di prendere una qualsiasi di queste misure.
Il Vaticano aveva pubblicato un “Rapporto Preliminare” preparatori per l’audizione. “In nessuna parte della Santa Sede [il nome della Chiesa il governo globale] Relazione Iniziale ai sensi della Convenzione non si fa alcuna menzione della diffusa e sistemica stupri e violenze sessuali perpetrate dal clero Cattolico contro centinaia di migliaia di bambini e adulti vulnerabili nel mondo. Non si parla di atti che hanno portato ad un sorprendente e quantità incalcolabile di danni nel mondo – profonda e duratura sofferenza fisica e mentale – con poca o nessuna responsabilità e l’accesso al ricorso …[T] Concilio Vaticano ii ha sempre minimizzato i danni causati dalle azioni del clero, sia attraverso la diretta sugli atti di violenza sessuale ed i funzionari della Chiesa” le azioni che seguono, come cover-up e vittima di colpa. … La Santa Sede la relazione iniziale di questo comitato è di per sé la prova di minimizzazione di questi reati e i danni.
Il Comitato contro la Tortura relazione è venuto “dopo gli alti funzionari hanno cercato di distanza del Vaticano legalmente dalla grande Chiesa … dicendo: “i sacerdoti non erano legalmente legata al Vaticano ma cadde sotto giurisdizioni nazionali. Ma il comitato insiste sul fatto che i dipendenti della Santa Sede, tra cui rappresentanti del papa nel mondo e i loro collaboratori, hanno la responsabilità di monitorare il comportamento di tutti sotto il loro controllo effettivo”.
Le seguenti facce e dichiarazione risulta, Papa Francesco, che si sono appena come il resto, quando giunge il momento di alzarsi per i pedofili, chi lo stupro dei bambini, dalla chiesa. Come non si prende veramente cura un bit circa le vittime, ma la difesa e la protezione della vostra chiesa e la pedofilia.
Come arcivescovo di Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio “rifiutato di incontrarsi con le vittime, e ha trascorso gran parte di silenzio sulla questione del clero abusi sessuali, ad eccezione di un sorprendente negazione che aveva affrontato un abusivo sacerdote. La sua azione era noto solo alla commissione un dietro le quinte relazione ai giudici che cercavano esonero di penalmente condannato sacerdote dal contesto la credibilità del sacerdote’s vittime.”
Poi, un mese e il giorno dopo che si era eletto Papa, è stato nominato un gruppo di Cardinali, di cui come arrivati C9, per essere il vostro consiglieri più vicini. E chi sono i membri del C9 consulenti?
Il Cardinale George Pell, arcivescovo e creatore del “Melbourne Risposta”, un sistema “progettato per controllare le vittime e proteggere la Chiesa … Pell destinati a ridurre al minimo i crimini, nascondere la verità, manipolare e a intimidire le vittime. … Alcuni parenti dei bambini maltrattati hanno chiesto al cardinale di una “mente psicopatica.” Pell conosce personalmente centinaia di persone coinvolte – le vittime e le loro famiglie, nonché gli autori. … Era un autorità ad alto livello nella Chiesa Cattolica quando la corte ha iniziato negli anni 1990 e le prime Cattolica figura in Australia fino a quando entrava a Roma. … [H]e è stato il leader di un sistema che tutela i reo e non innocenti. … [H]e l’uomo fu in carica nel corso di molti anni di questo scandalo. Egli, pertanto, può essere ritenuto responsabile e responsabile.”
Il Cardinale Francisco Javier Errazuriz Ossa: Errazuriz nazionale aveva fatto notizia per proteggere p. Fernando Karadima, la “peggior scandalo” della Chiesa cilena. “Power è il vero punto del caso. [Degli abusi sessuali contro i bambini] non sono possibili senza una rete di politici, sociali e religiosi potenza operante per 50 anni”, ha dichiarato analista politico Ascanio Cavallo, preside della scuola di giornalismo dell’Università Adolfo Ibáñez. I funzionari della Chiesa avevano avvertito già nel 1984 circa Karadima “comportamenti scorretti.” Il primo noto per raggiungere Errazuriz erano nel 2003. Nel 2006, un sacerdote nominato dalla Errázuriz allo scopo di studiare i reclami segnalati al cardinale che egli credeva “gli accusatori a essere credibile. Secondo la corte testimonianza civile nel 2011 in una denuncia presentata contro Karadima, i funzionari della Chiesa, tra cui Errázuriz, ha cercato di vergogna accusatori in caduta rivendicazioni, rifiutato di incontrarsi con loro e non è riuscito a effettuare indagini formali per anni. UN giudice ha respinto la causa penale contro Karadima nel novembre 2011. perché lo statuto delle limitazioni erano scaduti ma anche determinato che le accuse erano “veritiero e affidabile.
E quando Papa Francesco nominato Errázuriz al C9 consulenti, una delle vittime ha dichiarato che questo appuntamento: “un peccato e una vergogna.” Il 15 settembre 2013, Errázuriz detto che l’arcidiocesi non aveva la competenza per la loro “grande dolore”
Sì, il Santo Padre Francesco, ancora una volta, non abbiamo dalla bocca di uno dei propri consulenti, che coperto di preti pedofili, che la vostra chiesa non ha alcuna responsabilità per la loro enorme dolore.” Ma, Papa Francesco, che è poi la responsabilità per l’enorme dolore e sofferenza, di oneri ingiusti e l’orrore le vittime di stupri commessi contro di loro dai sacerdoti della Chiesa Cattolica Romana? È che le stesse vittime? Perché sembra che quando si tratta di questa vostra chiesa.
Quindi Papa Francesco, quando il Comitato delle Nazioni Unite sui diritti del fanciullo (CRC)richiesto, per informazioni dettagliate su tutti i casi di abusi sessuali su bambini commessi da membri del clero, religiosi o nun” per gli ultimi quindici anni e 1 novembre come un termine per la risposta. Le domande sono state inviate per la preparazione di un audizione pubblica prevista per il mese di gennaio. Che cosa dire e fare di questa richiesta?
Primo, un po’ di storia. Come uno dei firmatari della Convenzione sui Diritti del Bambino del 1989, la Chiesa è stata quindici anni di ritardo nella consegna di un report che descrive se avesse agito per “proteggere il fanciullo contro ogni forma di violenza fisica o psichica” come la convenzione richiede. Inoltre, il questionario ha cercato di stabilire se “gli autori dei reati a sfondo sessuale” è stato permesso di rimanere in contatto con i bambini, che un’azione legale contro di loro e se segnalazione di presunto abuso è obbligatoria. Esso ha anche incluso le query di sostegno per le vittime e gli incidenti in cui i ricorrenti erano stati ridotti al silenzio.
E qual è stata la tua risposta e il Sant’Uffizio per questo? Lei, Santo Padre Francesco e il Vaticano warnedthat potrebbe tirare fuori della Convenzione sui Diritti del Bambino, se spinto troppo duro sulla questione. In una relazione del proprio pubblicato sul sito web DELLE NAZIONI UNITE lo scorso ottobre, la Santa Sede ha ricordato il CRC delle riserve sulla giurisdizione legale e altre questioni, in quando ha firmato il patto globale. Ha detto i nuovi “interpretazione” dare motivi “per la cessazione o revoca” dal trattato.
E poi che cosa ha fatto Papa Francesco? Il 11 luglio 2013, il pontefice ha emanato una legge civile criminalizzare le perdite del Vaticano informazioni per la stampa e la violenza sessuale contro i bambini, compresa la pornografia infantile. I crimini sono punibili con un massimo di otto e dodici anni di carcere, rispettivamente. La legge applicabile all’interno dello Stato della Città del Vaticano e per i dipendenti della Santa Sede nella sua proprietà extraterritoriale e ambasciate.
Come hai fatto a rispondere al CRC Papa Francesco? Il 4 dicembre, il che indica che non è stata la pratica del suo governo di “fornire informazioni in merito ai casi specifici a meno che non venga richiesto da un altro paese come parte di un’azione legale” e “che il Vaticano può fornire informazioni solo sulle note e sui presunti crimini sessuali che hanno avvenuto in Vaticano.”
Quindi Papa Francesco, come un affronto alle facce delle vittime, che cosa ha fatto? Il 16 gennaio 2014, giorno in cui il CRC delle audizioni sono state per iniziare a Ginevra, Papa Francesco ha dimostrato ancora il disprezzo per le vittime della vostra Chiesa per celebrare la messa, seguita da un incontro privato, con il Cardinale Roger Mahony, arcivescovo emerito di Los Angeles. Il Washington Post (tra gli altri) aveva condannato Mahony noto per proteggere i tossicodipendenti, affermando che egli’s “fortunato a non essere in prigione” e che “il suo costante rilievo riflette la cultura dell’impunità nella Chiesa Cattolica un decennio dopo la sua tolleranza e la complicità della violenza contro i minori è stato esposto. “Dopo il colloquio privato con lei, Mahony blog “il tema dello scandalo non è venuto.”
Lo stesso giorno, Lombardi ha detto che la Chiesa ha sviluppato “una serie di iniziative e direttive”, che sono “molto utili” con le altre comunità. Egli ha anche criticato l’ipotesi che i vescovi o i superiori dei religiosi e delle religiose agire come rappresentanti o delegati del Papa.” Egli ha detto questa credenza è “assolutamente priva di fondamento.” Invece, le autorità civili dei paesi che hanno firmato la convenzione DELLE NAZIONI UNITE è direttamente responsabile della sua attuazione e per l’esecuzione delle leggi che tutelano i bambini.
Il panel ONU Vaticano ha chiesto ai rappresentanti di risposte alle domande che essi avevano inviato in luglio. Mentre i media americani sbandierano una dichiarazione fatta da uno dei funzionari del Vaticano che egli “viene”, la stampa estera non era troppo servile:
Germania Deutsche Welle: Vaticano risposta ;non odore test per la gente comune;
Venezuela, El Nacional: il Vaticano all’ONU oggi eluso con informazioni dettagliate su questioni relative all’abuso sessuale di minori da parte del clero in un esercizio retorico che tenta di dimostrare di avere la determinazione di impedire nuovi reati
Spagna, El Pais: il Vaticano ancora non si assume nessuna responsabilità per gli abusi sessuali
4. BishopAccountability.org notato quattro momenti significativi dell’audizione:
1. Per la prima volta, il Concilio Vaticano ii ha dovuto ammettere pubblicamente che ancora non prevedono l’indicazione di crimini sessuali alle autorità civili. Non fare questo passo quando i sacerdoti sono spretato.
2. La Santa Sede ha rifiutato di fornire i dati richiesti il 1º luglio.
3. Il Vaticano ritiene che l’obbligo del singolo autore e non la Chiesa, per risarcire le vittime
4. Gli ordini religiosi, che comprendono un terzo a metà del mondo&# 039 ;s Catholic chierici, ancora non sono costretti dalla Santa Sede a creare politiche abuso. (Papa Benedetto XVI ha ordinato i vescovi del mondo per farlo a partire dal 2011. L’ordine è stato ampiamente ignorato, anche dal cardinale arcivescovo di Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio.)
Quindi, il Santo Padre Francesco, ora mostrano come il Vaticano, te stesso e per gli altri bocchini per la vostra chiesa, ha svolto il guardare da un’altra parte gioco di sotterfugi e inganni. Di biasimare gli altri, dicendo: “ehi, guarda che cosa stanno facendo, perché con noi?
Delegato Vaticano alle NAZIONI UNITE, Arcivescovo Silvano Tomasi, ha risposto in un’intervista “Allo stesso tempo dobbiamo tenere in mente che anche se ci sono tanti milioni, quaranta milioni di casi di abuso di un anno per quanto riguarda i bambini, purtroppo in alcuni casi riguardano anche il personale.” Tomasi ha inoltre suggerito che il comitato DELLE NAZIONI UNITE potrebbe essere stato influenzato da “alcune ONG che supportano l’omosessualità, matrimonio tra omosessuali e altre questioni probabilmente ha presentato le proprie opinioni e rinforzo alla fine [il comitato] linea di pensiero in qualche modo.”
E poi è venuto fuori con questa dichiarazione Papa Francesco, sapendo che era una menzogna, perché la chiesa è stata tutt’altro che si muove con trasparenza e responsabilità. Il solo organizzativa, il Concilio Vaticano ii e la Chiesa Cattolica Romana ha dimostrato con le vostre azioni, è che si sta per proteggere la vostra chiesa a tutti i costi.
Il 5 marzo, nel 2014, il Papa, ha affermato che, per quanto riguarda la tortura sessuale dei bambini, “Le statistiche sul fenomeno della violenza contro i bambini sono sconvolgenti, ma anche dimostrano chiaramente che la grande maggioranza degli abusi provengono dal proprio ambiente familiare e da persone che sono vicino. La Chiesa Cattolica è forse l’unico ente pubblico che si muove con trasparenza e responsabilità. Nessun altro ha fatto di più. E ancora, la Chiesa è l’unico essere attaccati”.
Se le parole del Santo Padre Francesco e il resto erano verità? Quindi queste persone come il Cardinale Bernard Law, George Pell Timothy Dolan, Roger Mahony, Donald Wuerl e agli altri che lo hanno coperto questi crimini contro i bambini, che hanno contribuito a perpetuare questi crimini contro i bambini, che hanno protetto i pedofili sui figli, sarebbe stato scomunicato e alle autorità di perseguimento penale.
Se le parole del Santo Padre Francesco erano verità, quindi non vi ha ricordato l’arcivescovo Jozef Wesolowski nuovamente in Vaticano, in modo che egli potesse essere protetta da parte delle autorità della Repubblica Dominicana. Si avrebbe girato su di lui per la repressione dei crimini contro i bambini che ha commesso, invece di permettere che lui immunità sovrana per portarlo al Vaticano per essere protetti.
Se le tue parole sono verità, il Santo Padre Francesco, quindi non sarebbe possibile avere caricato il vostro C9 comitato consultivo con pedofili noti magnaccia, come George Pell e altri, contro il quale, non ci sono prove schiaccianti contro di loro hanno partecipato alla copertura di stupri e gli abusi di bambini.
Se le tue parole sono verità Papa Francesco, quindi la chiesa NON sarebbe negare alle vittime di questi crimini giustizia. La chiesa e gli avvocati di acquistare NON sarebbe ci nega le vittime giustizia utilizzando i termini di prescrizione contro di noi. Né contro qualsiasi modifica dello statuto delle limitazioni, o l’apertura di una finestra per le vittime a farsi avanti e chiedere giustizia per i crimini commessi contro di noi.
Se le tue parole sono verità Papa Francesco, non si sarà in grado di garantire che le vittime, di essere vittime, dagli attacchi fatto contro di noi.
NON sarebbe possibile che Bill Donohue, della Catholic League di attaccare noi vittime come lui, ci offende, demonizzare, diffamare. Tutto il male che ha detto contro di noi vittime, è uno che merita scomunica. Lei, Santo Padre Francesco, si chiama Bill Donohue, per la sua proclamazione come vittime sono niente ma bugiardi, cercatori d’oro, alla ricerca di un giorno di paga della chiesa. Per il suo confronto l’orrore, il terrore, la sofferenza e il dolore di noi vittime, che sono state brutalmente violentate, dei vostri sacerdoti, non solo dei nostri corpi, ma delle nostre anime, le nostre menti e i nostri cuori, per il suo essere uno schiaffo sul polso da una suora quando ha agito.
Per la sua menzogna sulla vittima, prclaiming lui come parte di un farmaco pista omicidio, come il dipartimento di polizia oggetto, quando la vittima, infatti, ha testimoniato in un farmaco omicidio, mettendo la sua vita a grandi rischi in questo modo. E a causa di Bill Donohue le azioni e le parole, che vittima ora è in pericolo di vita, dopo aver ricevuto minacce di morte e altre minacce, nonché essere battuti per la sua difesa e fa bene a testimoniare in un farmaco pista omicidio. La vittima è ora citano Bill Donohue e la Lega Cattolica per diffamazione e altre azioni civili e ancora, il Papa Francesco non è mai intervenuto per porre fine a Bill Donohue e i suoi attacchi contro le vittime del sacerdote lo stupro.
Se si stava parlando la verità Papa Francesco, poi, quando i Comitati delle Nazioni Unite sui diritti del fanciullo, e per la tortura, ha chiesto alla Santa Sede di abolire il segreto pontificio per le accuse di abusi sessuali su bambini, e al fine di diritto canonico obbligatoria la comunicazione all’autorità civile. Poi nel settembre del 2014, non si ha respinto la richiesta e gli ho detto che è fatto per motivi che le segnalazioni obbligatorie potrebbe interferire con la sovranità degli Stati indipendenti. Obbligo di segnalazione interferire con tale sovranità se una legge statale vietata reporting del clero abuso sessuale dei bambini alla polizia. Lo Stato non esiste.
Ma il Vaticano … illustra la sua reale intenzione di interferire nella sovranità degli Stati indipendenti, vietando reporting una volta procedimenti canonici, anche quando la legge civile richiede la comunicazione.
De facto il privilegio del clero con l’uso di segretezza, rendendo clero immune da procedimenti giudiziari civili per lo sfruttamento sessuale dei bambini, è stato istituito nel 1922 dal Papa Pio XI, ed è stato proseguito e ampliato da cinque dei suoi successori. Purtroppo, sembra che lei, Santo Padre Francesco hanno dato ogni indicazione di aggiunta alla lista, come il settimo papa.
Se si stava parlando la verità, il Santo Padre Francesco, quindi non sarebbe possibile avere nominato Juan Barros Madrid, Vescovo di Osorno, Cile. Non ottenere il suggerimento, il Papa Francesco, che il giorno in cui Barros è stato installato come Vescovo, tra polizia e centinaia di parrocchiani, vestito di nero di lutto denunciato Barros, che tutti sapevano che Barros aveva fatto e invece di sostenere lui, non si dovrebbe mai avere in lui un Vescovo?
Se si sta parlando verità Papa Francesco, quindi perché si ignora l Arcivescovo Chomali? Sappiamo, in un’intervista pubblicata 26 marzo, l’Arcivescovo di Concepcion descritti i dettagli di un incontro che ha avuto con Papa Francesco il 6 marzo. “Arcivescovo Chomali ha spiegato che egli donò al Papa Francesco “documenti con informazioni dettagliate sulle conseguenze della nomina aveva fatto. Tutta la documentazione che ho citato a lui, sia attraverso la nunziatura apostolica o l’ambasciata cilena presso la Santa Sede. È stato molto aggiornato sul Vescovo Barros” situazione, e di fatto a pochi giorni prima aveva parlato con lui. Con fermezza e convinzione mi disse che aveva analizzato tutti i dati relativi al passato e che non vi era alcuna ragione obiettiva che il Vescovo Barros non deve essere installato come vescovo diocesano.”
No, Papa Francesco, non dire la verità, per la le azioni parlano più delle parole. Si parla un buon PR parlare, ma le altre parole e azioni non corrispondono con il PR che vi inviamo. Sì, il Santo Padre Francesco, sono di fatto, chiamando a due facce, bugiardo e ciarlatano. Dico la verità quando dico questo. Qualcosa voi e il resto del pedofilo, non può iniziare anche a fare.
Lei, Santo Padre Francesco, mi fanno schifo insieme a tutti i pedofili Pimp Papi, Cardinali, Vescovi e Arcivescovi. Per voi sono come tutti loro, che sono un degenerato in mio libro, si sono responsabili per gli stupri, torture, schiavitù, abusi e altri crimini contro i bambini, come tutto il resto. Lei, Santo Padre Francesco, sono santo uomo di Dio, e non è neanche un rappresentante di Gesù Cristo sulla terra. Si sono ammalati e ritorto, è una, come un criminale come tutto il resto dei colleghi pedofili sfruttatori.
Si, il Santo Padre Francesco sono una delle più basse forme di vita sul pianeta. Anche il contenuto di un dependance è più di quanto voi, e merita molto di più rispetto al boot. Proteggi il tuo culto dei pedofili pedofili e sfruttatori, come il resto di loro.

Lei, Santo Padre Francesco ci chiede di perdonare. Perché mai si dovrebbe? Perché qualcuno dovrebbe perdonare voi o la vostra chiesa e ciò che tutti voi avete fatto?
NESSUNO DI VOI SONO VERAMENTE PENTITO DI TUTTI I CRIMINI E I MALI VOI E LA VOSTRA CHIESA HA FATTO CONTRO DI NOI!!!!QUINDI, NON SI PUÒ, E NEPPURE IL PROPRIO DIO E GESÙ CRISTO perdona, A MENO CHE L’UTENTE VERAMENTE E sinceramente pentiti DI TUTTO QUESTO MALE CHE AVETE FATTO PER I BAMBINI, NEL CORSO DEI SECOLI DI QUELLO CHE AVETE FATTO PER LORO. PER ESSERE perdonato, così fate anche voi DEVONO PENTIRSI, VISTO CHE NON L’HANNO FATTO, NON HA DIRITTO DI CHIEDERE A CHI DI NOI NON PERDONO…..LE VITTIME CHE HANNO ATTRAVERSATO QUESTO ORRORE, NÉ IL SUO DIO E GESÙ CHE TUTTI PROCLAMANO DI ESSERE RAPPRESENTANTI DI!!!
Papa Francesco, proclamare di rappresentare sulla terra, come Vicario di Cristo, allora la sua parola vale molto di più a voi e il resto del Cardinali, Arcivescovi e Vescovi, ancor più di quanto non vale anche per il resto di noi. Per VOI si suppone di essere santi uomini di dio, e i responsabili di ciò che si proclamano l’unica vera chiesa di Gesù Cristo.
Beh, quella di annunciare a rappresentare, Papa Francesco, Gesù ha detto nella bibbia, il libro CHE tutti proclamano di essere la vera parola del vero Dio, il seguente:Marco 9:42:42 “chiunque scandalizzerà uno di questi piccoli che credono, sarebbe stato meglio per lui, con una pesante macina appesa al collo, era stato gettato in mare. E in Luca 17, 1-2: 1 Egli disse ai suoi discepoli: “è inevitabile che gli ostacoli, ma guai a colui per colpa del quale avviene lo scandalo! 2 “sarebbe meglio per lui che gli si metta una macina appesa al collo e venga gettato nel mare, piuttosto che uno di questi piccoli.
Sembra che, il Santo Padre Francesco, che voi e il resto del pedofilo papponi dovrebbe investire in una società che rende forte e robusta corda e fa un sacco di macine in pietra. Se io fossi in te? Vorrei iniziare a unire le corde intorno al collo e collegamento a macine e trovare una grande porzione di mare per lanciare i vostri corpi. Che deve essere molto meglio di avere a che fare con quelli che si proclamano di rappresentare Gesù Cristo è per le vostre anime una volta davanti a lui a mio parere.
In chiusura il Papa Francesco, perché noi che sono state violentate, torturate, brutalizzata, ridotto in schiavitù, e distrutti dalla vostra chiesa e la sua i pedofili e i tossicodipendenti, hanno il coraggio di dire apertamente contro tutti i crimini commessi contro di noi e chiedere giustizia, siamo bollati come bigotti, odiatori, e peggio ancora. Ci è stato detto, ancora una volta, perché non osiamo parlare, che tutti noi siamo legati per l’inferno.
Molti di noi hanno già fatto il nostro tempo all’inferno se Papa Francesco. I nostri dolori e le sofferenze, i nostri incubi, i nostri orrori ci hanno inviato all’inferno e non pochi di noi sono venuti dall’altra parte, molto più forte, che le vittime si erano una volta. Ci sono attualmente I SUPERSTITI.
Sebbene alcuni di noi non ha, il nostro dolore e sofferenza, orrore e proseguire il trattamento del male contro di noi, la Chiesa Cattolica Romana, alcuni di essi a soffiare le cervella, o farsi impiccare, o suicidio in altri modi.
E alcuni sono ancora nascosti nell’ombra, ha paura di uscire e parlare, circa i crimini commessi contro di loro, per i sacerdoti, fratelli, suore e sorelle e tutti gli altri della vostra chiesa. Chi ancora tace, perché avete paura, si temono gli stupratori e la mente le torture cui sono stati posti da loro, mentre essi erano violentate e brutalizzata, realizzare questo Papa Francesco!!!
Abbiamo il forte superstiti sono MOLTI. Noi non abbiamo paura, né la chiesa, né i Cardinali, gli Arcivescovi e Vescovi. Noi non abbiamo paura del pew lucidatrici, che insultano e offendono e ci minacciano. Noi non abbiamo paura Bill Donohue della Lega Cattolica o chiunque altro si attacca.
Dobbiamo insistere e parlare, che si terrà a tutti voi i vostri crimini. Avremo occasione di parlare ed esporre ovunque andiamo, quando siamo chiamati a farlo. Ci batteremo per le vittime, che sono ancora, ancora troppo aver paura di parlare. Dobbiamo difenderli, noi, contro di voi e gli altri dirigenti e tutti coloro che attaccano e difendono la chiesa per tutti i crimini commessi contro di noi.
Continueremo a chiedere giustizia. Continueremo a chiedere l’arresto e l’azione penale nei confronti di tutti e di ciascuno di voi, che coperto questi crimini contro di noi, che protetto e difeso i pedofili, gli autori di noi, e vinceremo contro di voi tutti. Non si può pensare, si potrebbe pensare che la Chiesa Cattolica Romana è intoccabile, che non si possono fare tutti i crimini contro l’umanità e per i bambini di tutto il mondo.
In un certo senso, si potrebbe essere giusto, che non c’è giustizia sistema sarà in grado di farci pagare per i crimini, ma che è, di fatto cambiando e credo che presto le Nazioni Unite possano far sentire la loro voce e sarà perseguibile da parte loro.
Ma poi, un giorno, si dovrà stare davanti al giudice ULTIMO, quelli che tutti proclamano a seguire e rappresentare su questo piano di esistenza. E credo che quando si? Sono sicuro che lei aveva legato una enorme macina intorno al collo e gettato voi stessi nel profondo del mare, rispetto al pene si affaccia davanti al giudice si chiama Dio e Gesù Cristo.
CREDO, che vi mostrerà più misericordia, inviando direttamente al 9° livello di Dante Inferno, a tutti voi in noi, i sopravvissuti del male, il codice di procedura penale culto della pedofilia, preti pedofili, le Suore e tutti abusivi il parrocchiano Pew Lucidatrici della Chiesa Cattolica Romana
Catholic child abuse analysed
Andrew Brown Blog

The John Jay Institute report on the child abuse scandals in the USA has been published. It will surprise and discomfort all sides
The big report of the independent criminologists of the John Jay institute into child abuse in the American Catholic church has now been published. There is something in it to upset everyone. For a start there are many cases of child abuse – and though the report does not go into this – there was a great deal of covering up done. But we knew that. What’s new in the report is the detailed examination of the causes and of the statistics involved.
The pattern that the investigators have to explain is a steep rise in cases of child abuse though the sixties and seventies, followed by a steady decline but a simultaneous rise in reports of earlier incidents in the late Eighties and early Nineties. That, too, has declined towards the present day.
This is an unusual pattern both of reporting and of offending. For comparison I have extracted from the government’s web site the Swedish figures for sex crimes against children under 15 and they show no decline at all since 1991. I’ll come back to those later.
The other notorious and unusual thing about the American Catholic cases is that the great majority of them involved boys – something like 83%. The secular pattern is entirely different.
There are three popular explanations for the figures, depending on your view of the Catholic church: if you are a liberal Christian you are inclined to blame celibacy; if you are a conservative, you blame it all on gays; and if you’re not a Christian at all you just assume they are all rotten, always have been, and still are.
I don’t think this last explanation stands up, for two reasons. The first is that even at its height child abuse was a pretty uncommon crime. The John Jay Institute helpfully compares the number of reported offences with the number of confirmation candidates, to get a rough figure of reported assaults per 100,000. This will tend to overestimate the frequency, because obviously a priest has access to many more children than just confirmation candidates. But it is a consistent measure by which to compare year with year.
So in 1992, when the worst was over, the rate was 15 incidents of reported abuse per 100,000 confirmations. By 2001 it had dropped to of 5 incidents of abuse per 100,000 confirmations in the Catholic Church. There was a similar drop in American society as a whole but less steep and from a consistently higher rate.
For comparison, the Swedish figures for reported sex crimes against all children under 15 was 142/100,000 children in 1992, and 169/100,000 in 2001.
These figures suggest that during the 1990s a child in Sweden, possibly the most secularised country in Europe, was between 10 and 30 times more likely to be sexually assaulted than an American Catholic was by his priest. Even making allowances for the considerable margin of error that must be built into these figures, it’s clear that what went on in US Catholic churches was terrible but rather less terrible than what went on at the same time in many other places where Catholicism was not involved. If the US Catholic church is a hotbed of child rape, Sweden is an awful lot worse. (Just to be clear here, I think the idea that Sweden is a dangerous country for children is entirely absurd.)
I picked Sweden for comparison largely because I know my way round the crime statistics there. But the US government figures quoted in the John Jay report show also that Alaska has a rate of reported child abuse that dwarfs Sweden’s – 788/100,000 in 2001, or 140 times the incidence of reported child abuse in the US Catholic church at the same period. So there is nothing uniquely rotten about the American Catholic church.
The second reason is sociological. The statistics do show a clear and steady decline in reported cases for the last 30 years, even though much of the reporting did not come in until long after the event. If you want to believe that the level of crime has stayed steady while the number of reports has dropped, you would have to come up with some reason why American Catholics (unlike Alaskans or Swedes) would become less likely to report a crime in a period when the social stigma for doing so has almost disappeared and in some cases considerable financial compensation has been on offer.
Which leaves the other two hypotheses. Was it the fault of the gays? The argument in favour is that the victims were overwhelmingly boys and the perpetrators exclusively men. But the John Jay study rejects this, on two grounds. The first, again, is based on the decline in the number of reported incidents. That coincides with what most people agree has been an increase in the number of gay men in the priesthood. So if gay priests were the problem, you would expect the figure for reported assaults to rise, as they did in Sweden and Alaska. This hasn’t happened.
Nor is it the case that men who had had sex with other men before training for the priesthood abused boys in any greater numbers than men who had had sex with women before.
“Priests with pre-ordination same-sex sexual behaviour were significantly more likely to participate in post-ordination sexual behaviour, but these priests were more likely to participate in sexual behaviour with adults than minors. Same-sex sexual behaviour prior to ordination did not significantly predict the sexual abuse of minors.”
But gay priests of this sort, if they did abuse, showed a marked preference for male victims.
So perhaps it was celibacy, after all. The trouble with this theory is the same decline in incidence of abuse as was noted before. That was not accompanied by any relaxation in the celibacy rules. It’s possible that the discipline of celibacy has simply collapsed in the USA. But the report doesn’t suggest this; nor, for that matter does anecdotal (or any other) evidence.
Which leaves the “Woodstock” hypothesis: that it was all the consequence of rapid social change. The combined impact of the sexual revolution outside the Church, and of the Vatican II reforms inside simply broke down the traditional self-discipline of the priesthood along with much of its traditional authority. This is the hypothesis that the report itself favours. But there is a subtlety with this view: if it were only the morals of the surrounding society which made a difference, then – again – the incidence of abuse would hardly have gone down. American society is not more sexually puritanical now than it was in 1975. So, the report argues, it was the impact of the sexual revolution on men who had not been trained to withstand it which was the decisive factor.
Two controversies remain. The first is the report’s definition of “paedophile” as someone who only has sex with children under 10. By this definition, less than one in twenty of abusing priests were paedophiles. But it’s clear from the figures that there were a lot of abusing priests who did not much care whether their victims were pre-pubescent or not. Nearly one in three of the multiple offenders had at least one victim who was 12 or younger as well as one who was older than 15.
The second is the response of the authorities. This has been historically feeble and sometimes much worse. But that’s a subject for another post.
Thousands Abused in Church Institutions, Dutch Report Says
From the link: http://reform-network.net/?p=14008
By ALAN COWELL
Published: December 16, 2011
LONDON — As the repercussions of sexual abuse scandals continue to shake the Roman Catholic Church in Europe and the United States, a report on Friday by an official commission in the Netherlands said church officials had “failed to adequately deal with” with abuse affecting as many as 20,000 Dutch children in Catholic institutions, according to news reports.
The findings showed what some analysts said was one of the highest levels of abuse in a continent that has been forced to confront a steady stream of public disclosures about the behavior priests and church workers toward minors, maintaining pressure on the Vatican. It also said the church’s response to the victims in the Netherlands was not designed to help them but to “prevent scandals.”
The report said the commission had received some 1,800 reports of abuse at Catholic schools, seminaries and orphanages, accusing the church of a “failure of oversight.” The commission then conducted a broader survey, finding that, between 1945 and 1981, between 10,000 and 20,000 children were sexually abused in church institutions, with offenses ranging from inappropriate touching to “several thousand” cases of rape.
The commission identified some 800 clergy and lay church workers named in complaints. Of them, 105 were still alive, but their status within the church was not clear.
The charges offered more testimony to the disturbing imagery of priestly abuse that have spread in recent years across Europe from Belgium to Ireland and Austria as well as in Canada and the United States, forcing Pope Benedict XVI to apologize to victims whose traumas were often hidden by church cover-ups.
Wim Deetman, a Protestant former education minister who led the commission, said the report showed that the extent of abuse could longer be denied. “The idea that people did not know it and administrators did not know it cannot be maintained,” he said, according to Reuters.
The latest accusations came just days after The Irish Times newspaper said the former archbishop of Dublin, John Charles McQuaid — widely regarded as the most powerful Catholic prelate in modern Irish history — stands accused of serial child sexual abuse before his death in 1973.
In March 2010, Pope Benedict apologized directly to victims and their families in Ireland, expressing ’”shame and remorse” for “sinful and criminal’” acts committed by members of the clergy.
Last July, a report by the Irish government said the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland was covering up the sexual abuse of children by priests as recently as 2009, long after it issued guidelines meant to protect children. That report accused the Vatican of tacitly encouraging the cover-up.
At the same time, Germany’s Roman Catholic bishops took new steps to bring previously unreported abuse to light, saying they would allow outside investigators to look for abuse cases in diocesan personnel records dating back at least 10 years, and in some cases all the way to 1945, though there were indications that some crucial records may have already been destroyed.
Record numbers of Catholics left the church in Germany in 2010 after hundreds of cases of previously unreported child abuse came to light, including a case of a priest with a history of molesting boys who was returned to pastoral duties by the archbishop of Munich, Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict. The priest was later convicted of molesting more boys.
In September, human rights lawyers and victims of clergy sexual abuse filed a complaint in the United States urging the International Criminal Court in The Hague to investigate and prosecute Pope Benedict and three top Vatican officials for crimes against humanity for what they described as abetting and covering up the rape and sexual assault of children by priests.
The formal filing of nearly 80 pages by two American advocacy groups, the Center for Constitutional Rights and the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, was the most substantive effort yet to hold the pope and the Vatican accountable in an international court for sexual abuse by priests.
The latest report in the Netherlands said that, based on a survey of more than 34,000 people, 10 percent of Dutch children had suffered from some form of abuse. The proportion doubled to 20 percent among children who had spent some of their youth in institutions, irrespective of their affiliation, The Associated Press reported.
The commission was established by the government in 2010 to probe accusations of abuse since 1945, following incidents at one cloister that inspired a series of allegations of priestly abuse at other institutions.
Last month, the Dutch branch of the Roman Catholic Church announced a system to compensate victims with payments of up to $138,000.
Almost one third of the Netherlands’ 16 million people profess Catholicism, making their faith the largest in the country, according to the country’s official statistics for 2008.
CHRISTOPHER NAPLES RESPONDS TO PRESS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE DIOCESE OF TRENTON ON JUNE 3, 2014
JACOBS & CRUMPLAR, P.A. ROBERT JACOBS* THOMAS C. CRUMPLAR+ ELIZABETH B. LEWIS+◊ JORDAN J. PONZO*◊▲ RAEANN WARNER+◊ ATTORNEYS AT LAW 2 EAST 7th STREET P. O. BOX 1271 WILMINGTON, DELAWARE 19899 (302) 656-5445 FAX (302) 656-5875 MILLSBORO, DE OFFICE (302) 934-9700 *Also Admitted to DC Bar +Also Admitted in NJ ◊Also Admitted in PA ▲Also Admitted in MD June 4, 2014 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CHRISTOPHER NAPLES RESPONDS TO PRESS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE DIOCESE OF TRENTON ON JUNE 3, 2014 Christopher Naples responds to the release as follows: 1. The Diocese of Trenton claims that it “worked hard to try to resolve the case, as we have resolved others, but without success” and that it renews its offer to work with him to resolve his case. “In fact, the Diocese of Trenton has just moved for the second time to dismiss Chris’s lawsuit in its entirety on a legal technicality,” said his attorney Raeann Warner. In fact, the Diocese of Trenton successfully moved to dismiss Chris Naples’ Delaware case on a legal technicality called “lack of personal jurisdiction,” which means the Delaware Court did not have the ability to hear a case against the Diocese of Trenton because of its lack of “contacts” with the state of Delaware, rather than getting to the merits of his case and what it was really about – that the Diocese of Trenton through its agents and employees knew he was being abused and did nothing to stop it or protect him. Chris re-filed his case in New Jersey. On May 29th, 2014 the Diocese of Trenton again moved to dismiss Chris’s case – again on a legal technicality – claiming that Chris has filed his case too late. The motion to dismiss filed by the Diocese of Trenton will be heard on June 20, 2014. The Diocese of Trenton is in fact working to get rid of Chris’s case again on a technicality and prevent a fair discovery process whereby Chris Naples can finally confront the Diocese of Trenton employees and agents through the discovery and deposition process. 2. The Diocese claims it offered to arrange for counseling and an opportunity to meet with the Diocesan Review Board. In fact, Monsignor Walter Nolan and Maureen Fitzsimmons told Chris that he did not have to meet with the review board. Regarding its offer of counseling, Chris was not willing to sign a required medical release permitting the Diocese access to all his medical records, nor did he want the Diocese dictating who he could treat with. Chris Naples needed to clear up this record. “Chris Naples wants to thank his supporters for the overwhelming encouragement and support he has received since the article in the Star Ledger appeared. He appreciates it very much,” said his attorney Raeann Warner.
A response by the Diocese of Trenton to media reports on the Christopher Naples case
6/3/2014 An article published by the Star Ledger and posted to nj.com on June 2 presented inaccurate and, in some instances, false information about the civil suit against the Diocese of Trenton by Christopher Naples over charges that he was sexually abused as a minor by Father Terence McAlinden beginning in the mid 1980s. These allegations date back to 2007, at which time the Diocese responded swiftly and responsibly, contrary to the information and interviews published in the article. At that time, the Diocese took a series of actions out of an abundance of concern for the victim, the parish and the public. The Diocese has taken the complaints filed by Mr. Naples very seriously since the day they were first brought to our attention. The Diocese's own investigation found the charges to be credible and Father McAlinden was immediately removed from ministry by then Bishop John M. Smith. Father McAlinden's priestly faculties were suspended, meaning that he could not celebrate Mass, wear a collar or present himself as a priest anywhere. Only days after Father McAlinden’s removal, Bishop Smith and a team of diocesan officials held a town meeting with 1,000 of Father McAlinden's parishioners and reported the allegations against their pastor and the actions that were taken. Repeated appeals were made by the Diocese for anyone else who may have suffered abuse by Father McAlinden, or who knew someone who had, to come forward. Press releases were issued to the media, posted to our website and published in our diocesan newspaper about the charges against Father McAlinden and his removal. Every attempt was made to inform the public about this case. Furthermore, our outreach to Mr. Naples was immediate. The Diocese’s Victim’s Assistance Coordinator met with him and offered to arrange for counseling. He was also offered the opportunity to meet with the Diocesan Review Board. Instead, he chose to take his case to court – in the State of Delaware – and name the Diocese as a culpable party. We worked hard to try to resolve the case, as we have resolved others, but without success. Pieces of an oral argument clipped from a transcript and made by an attorney in defending the Diocese against Mr. Naples' multimillion dollar lawsuit in Delaware are now being used to obscure the very real efforts made by the Diocese on Mr. Naples' behalf. The basis of that lawsuit were two incidents that were reported to occur in Delaware when Father McAlinden had taken Mr. Naples on a trip. The attorney's position, which related only to those two incidents, was that these were not church related trips, and that Father McAlinden, in the commission of criminal acts, was most certainly not acting in his ministerial role as a priest. The Delaware Supreme Court agreed. We also refute Father McAlinden’s reported claim that he is a “retired priest.” In May, 2011 Bishop David M. O'Connell, C.M., permanently removed Father McAlinden from any possibility of public ministry or functioning as a priest after reports surfaced that Father McAlinden was continuing to celebrate Masses in his home in violation of the order given by Bishop Smith at the time of Father McAlinden’s suspension. Furthermore, the conduct with teens acknowledged by Father McAlinden in his testimony and described by him as “standard practice" is anything but “standard.” It is thoroughly reprehensible and in no way represents conduct that would ever be condoned by the Diocese of Trenton or the Church anywhere. The Diocese remains committed to helping Mr. Naples. We renew our offer to work with him to resolve this case. Once again, we reach out to anyone who may have been abused by Father McAlinden or who has any knowledge of such abuse. You are encouraged to report that abuse to your local law enforcement agency, and to the Diocese by calling 18882962965. end My Note: A very typical response from a protector and apologist from the RCC.
When is a priest not a priest? When he’s molesting a child, diocese says in defense of lawsuit

Chris Naples says something snapped inside him that January day.
The Burlington County man sat in the gallery of the Delaware Supreme Court, watching as a lawyer for the Diocese of Trenton told the justices that the Rev. Terence McAlinden was not “on duty” — or serving in his capacity as a priest — when he allegedly molested Naples on trips to Delaware in the 1980s.
McAlinden, who once headed the diocese’s youth group, had introduced himself to Naples at a church-sponsored leadership retreat in Keyport. He’d heard his confession, included him in private Masses and discussed matters of spirituality with him.
Yet McAlinden wasn’t officially a priest when he took a teenage Naples to Delaware, the lawyer argued.
“How do we determine when a priest is and is not on duty?” one of the justices asked, according to a video of the session on the court’s website.
“Well,” replied the diocese lawyer, “you can determine a priest is not on duty when he is molesting a child, for example. … A priest abusing a child is absolutely contrary to the pursuit of his master’s business, to the work of a diocese.”
The statement — one prong of the diocese’s argument that it should not be held responsible for McAlinden’s alleged assaults — left Naples reeling.
“Any hope I had that the church was concerned about me as a victim or about the conduct of its priests was totally gone,” Naples, now 42, said in a recent interview. “They were washing their hands of it. I was shattered. I just couldn’t believe that was one of their arguments.”
Saying church officials must be held accountable for their handling of McAlinden, Naples has now filed suit against the diocese in Superior Court in Mercer County.
The lawsuit comes after the Delaware courts ruled Naples didn’t have jurisdiction to sue the diocese in that state because he couldn’t prove the trips were church-sanctioned. Naples did win a $3 million judgment against McAlinden individually in Delaware, though he has yet to see a penny.
He expects he never will, saying the priest has few assets.
“This has never been about the money,” Naples said. “It’s about exposing him for the monster that he is, and it’s about transparency in the diocese. They knew about McAlinden. They could have done something about it. And they did what every other diocese did. They kept it hush-hush and paid behind-the-scenes settlements.”
Also named as a defendant is St. Theresa’s Parish in Little Egg Harbor, where McAlinden was named pastor in 1988. For two decades leading up to the appointment, he served as director of the Catholic Youth Organization. The suit can be found here.
Naples, who lives with his wife and two children in New Gretna, first came forward to the diocese in 2007, alleging McAlinden sexually abused him for more than a decade, beginning when he was 13. The diocese investigated the claims, found them to be credible and suspended McAlinden from ministry, effectively ending his career as a priest.
Since then, two other men have made similar claims. One of the men, Patrick Newcombe, revealed at a press conference in 2011 that the diocese gave him a settlement in exchange for his silence. Newcombe first came forward in 1989 and reached a settlement in 1992. The other accuser, Bob Markulic, said McAlinden abused him in the 1960s at his first assignment, Our Lady of Victories Church in Sayreville.
Markulic received an undisclosed settlement from the diocese two years ago, said his attorney, Gregory Gianforcaro.
McAlinden, now 73, declined to comment when a reporter knocked on the door of his ranch-style home in Little Egg Harbor. He said he did not have an attorney.
During a December 2012 deposition in the Delaware court case, he acknowledged having an intense sexual relationship with Naples but said it began only after Naples turned 18.
He also admitted sleeping nude with “a number of” teen boys who were active in the diocese’s youth group. The overnights took place at Jeremiah House, the youth group’s headquarters in Keyport, and at the rectory of St. Theresa’s, he said. Other times, McAlinden said, teen boys bathed nude with him in a hot tub at his parents’ home in Toms River.
In the deposition, a copy of which has been obtained by The Star-Ledger, he called nudity in the hot tub “standard practice.” McAlinden said he had no sexual contact with the children.
Rayanne Bennett, a spokeswoman for the diocese, would not discuss the lawsuit or address McAlinden’s status.
Naples said the diocese told him in 2007 that McAlinden would be removed from the priesthood altogether, or laicized. Yet five years later, at the time of the deposition, McAlinden said he remained a priest, albeit a retired one, and drew a pension from the diocese. He augmented that pay by working as a real estate agent, he said.
‘He Knew How to Manipulate’
He called it “The Poor Box.”
McAlinden kept the 28-foot Bayliner cabin cruiser in Toms River, and to 13-year-old Chris Naples, it seemed pretty cool.
McAlinden offered to take him out on the boat when they met at the weekend leadership retreat in the summer of 1985. The teen’s mother, divorced and deeply religious, readily agreed, believing a priest would be a positive influence on her son, Naples said.
Nothing sexual happened on that first boat ride, a day trip, Naples said. An overnight trip followed on the Fourth of July. Naples said that day marked the first of hundreds of sexual assaults.
He contends McAlinden abused him at Jeremiah House, on the boat, in the rectory at St. Theresa’s, at the home of the priest’s parents in Toms River and on trips Delaware, Connecticut, New York, Atlantic City and the Virgin Islands.
In one instance, a housekeeper who was employed by the church walked into a bedroom while the two had sex, the suit states. It’s not clear if she reported what she saw. Other priests knew about Naples’ frequent sleepovers but said nothing, according to the suit.
One of those priests, the Rev. Thomas Triggs, served as assistant director of the diocese’s youth group under McAlinden. He frequently witnessed the teen walking into McAlinden’s room to spend the night, the suit states. Triggs also accompanied them on some of their trips, Naples said.
Triggs would go on to lead his own parish, St. Mary’s in Colts Neck. Last year, Trenton Bishop David M. O’Connell removed him after The Star-Ledger reported he allowed the Rev. Michael Fugee to interact with the parish’s youth group.
Fugee had been barred from ministering to children for life following accusations he repeatedly groped a teenage boy. Fugee has since been laicized. Triggs could not be reached for comment.
Naples says his abuse continued into his mid-20s. Asked why he didn’t stop or report it, he said he couldn’t, that McAlinden had emotional and intellectual control over him.
“He knew how to manipulate,” Naples said. “He would say things like, ‘If your mother found out about this special thing we have, she would die,’” Naples said. “He called it our little secret. And I thought I was the only one.”
It was McAlinden who introduced Naples to his wife, Patty, now a teacher. McAlinden presided over their marriage and baptized their two children. He is godfather to one of the kids.
Naples said he didn’t realize how badly the relationship with McAlinden affected him, even after it stopped being sexual in 1997. He felt he was “smothering in Saran wrap,” yet he didn’t know why.
Patty Naples noticed.
In an interview at the couple’s home, she said her husband became increasingly withdrawn and distant. By 2007, she was sure he was having an affair. On July 2 of that year, she confronted him. Chris Naples stormed out.
Hours later, he sat in his driveway, contemplating suicide, he said.
Ultimately, he told her that he’d been harboring a secret throughout their lives together.
“He said, ‘I was abused by Mac,’ and he just crashed,” Patty Naples said. “He was crying, and I was sobbing, and I was like, ‘No.’ I didn’t want to believe it, but Chris was breaking down in front of me, and I knew it was true.”
A month later, Naples brought his allegations to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office. He said a detective was sympathetic but told him the alleged crimes were beyond the criminal statute of limitations.
Naples also confronted his alleged abuser during a phone call he taped. McAlinden made no apologies for the sexual contact during the conversation, which The Star-ledger has reviewed.
“At no time did I feel like I was using you or taking advantage of you,” McAlinden says on the tape.
Today, as he prepares for another lengthy legal showdown, Naples says he isn’t motivated by anger. He calls himself the “church’s best victim” because he has refrained from public attacks on the diocese.
But he said he wants an acknowledgment that the diocese could have done more. He said he also hopes his suit sends a message to other alleged victims.
“If it helps others who may be choosing something bad,” he said, referring to his own thoughts of suicide, “then they know they’re not alone.”
Pope Francis asked us survivors of priest rape and nun abuse of the Roman Catholic Church to forgive him the other day.
After talking to quite a few of my brother and sister survivors well….we find it rather insulting. These are the reasons why.
1. To be forgiven you MUST repent. Even Jesus Christ says this. To repent means you turn away from the evil you are asking forgiveness for. So has the Roman Catholic Church and Pope Francis and those whom committed either the crimes of cover ups and moving around of pedophile priests, or the priests themselves whom raped and abused us, and thus destroying our faiths, our lives, truly repented? In the opinions of the majority of priest and nun abuse survivors the answer is a resounding NO.
To truly show repentance, the Roman Catholic Church and Pope Francis must show real concrete action in cleaning this mess up and not just lip service and more empty promises to us.
Pope Francis MUST immediately fire and prosecute to the fullest extent the law allows and give the harshest penalties to all credibly accused Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops whom there is overwhelming evidence against they participated in these cover ups. We have positive proof many Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops did in fact cover up these crimes against us. Through their own words, through Church documents, through whistleblower accounts by the likes of Father Thomas Doyle and other brave priests, nuns and yes, leaders whom find this evil just as disgusting as we do and a cancer destroying this church, we do in fact have overwhelming evidence, that if these people were brought before a court of law, they would be convicted of their crimes of cover ups. 80% of the Cardinals and other leaders currently in the United States participated in this cover up, there is more than enough evidence against them to prove this.
Their excuses are weak, they did not know this was a crime is one of the biggest insults that can be said to us. This has been said by many of those whom covered up these crimes, or that they were ill prepared to deal with this. Well to the victims of these crimes..this is just another example of hey…we know what we did was wrong, but we will make any excuse to cover our butts.
2. Another priest was found whom raped children and is now safely in Paraguay. His name is Father Carlos Urrutigoity. This is just one more of dozens of other priests whom have still escaped justice through the help of the Roman Catholic Church along with such Cardinals as Bernard Law.
Again, despite the clear warning, and complaints of sexual misconduct against him, Urrutigoity was allowed to continue living and working in the Diocese of Scranton. Two years later, he was being accused of sexual misconduct again, this time in court.
In a 2002 lawsuit against Urrutigoity, and another priest Eric Ensey and the Diocese of Scranton, the two priests were accused of a pattern of sexual misconduct. Urrutigoity was accused of giving alcohol and cigars to teenagers, sharing beds and sleeping bags with seminarians and inappropriately touching at least two young men. The alleged acts were cloaked in a bizarre dogma upon which Urrutigoity and Ensey had founded their society.
One former member of the Society of St. John said in a deposition that he slept in the same bed as Urrutigoity after the priest said it would help him overcome his “puritanical attitude.” After a few months of their sharing a bed, the seminarian woke one night to find the priest’s hand first on his abdomen, then on his penis.
In a deposition for the lawsuit, a former seminarian in Minnesota said Urrutigoity asked him to insert anal suppositories in front of him. When he refused, the young man said in a deposition, Urrutigoity was furious, calling the act a betrayal. Urrutigoity at least twice invited him to sleep in the same bed, the man said in the deposition. One night, he woke up to find Urrutigoity was molesting him, the seminarian said.
The Diocese of Scranton settled the lawsuit in 2004 for more than $400,000. It also sent Urrutigoity and Ensey to The Southdown Institute, an organization in Canada, for a detailed psychological evaluation.Instead he should have been defrocked and turned over to the police for prosecution.
Following that evaluation, the Diocese of Scranton’s Independent Review Board made its recommendation, which was noted in the confidential minutes of the board meeting:
“In view of the credible allegation from the seminarian, his admitted practice of sleeping with boys and young men, and the troubling evaluation by the Southdown Institute, Father Carlos Urrutigoity should be removed from active ministry; his faculties should be revoked; he should be asked to live privately.”
A criminal investigation launched by the Lackawanna County district attorney was stymied by a lack of cooperation from St. Gregory’s and Pennsylvania’s short statute of limitations on sex crimes, said Tom Dubas, the lead investigator on the case. Dubas wanted to launch a grand jury investigation, but never had the chance.
“As soon as it got out that I was interested in a grand jury, both priests just disappeared,” Dubas said. “We never did convene one.”
Then, in 2008, Urrutigoity began making headlines again, this time in far eastern Paraguay in the den of iniquity known as the Tri-Border Area.
In 2008, Javier Miranda, a Ciudad del Este resident who was once an active volunteer at local churches, learned of a recent influx of international priests. He decided to research the newcomers.
It didn’t take Miranda long to unearth the scandals that had followed Urrutigoity. Immediately, he protested against the priest’s presence in the diocese, and was soon joined by dozens more local volunteers and even a group of 12 local priests, who in 2009 signed a letter denouncing Urrutigoity as a divisive figure.
The bishop of Ciudad del Este, Rogelio Ricardo Livieres Plano, responded with a spirited defense of Urrutigoity, The priest had been slandered and persecuted, Livieres said. Miranda and other critics should join with the church in praying for a peaceful end to the controversy, he wrote on the diocese’s website.Miranda said far from being welcomed, he and the other vocal critics were ostracized by the church. Undeterred, Livieres continued to support Urrutigoity, not only was Urrutigoity active in the Catholic church in Paraguay, but he had been promoted to the position of vicar general, essentially the second most powerful post in the diocese of Ciudad del Este.
This rapist priest is still protected by the church. There are dozens and dozens more just like him, still protected and defended by those of the Roman Catholic Church.
This priest and all the others, including Cardinals like Bernard Law, whom is still protected by the Vatican, should be immediately fired, defrocked and prosecuted.
3. The church must stop hiding behind the statue of limitations they use against victims to avoid taking responsibility for their actions and paying for their crimes against us and make things right with the victims. Anything less would be pure hypocrisy.
They MUST keep their words and promises to us they signed onto with their Pledge to Protect and Promise to Heal charters with the Attorney Generals of each state.
The disgusting attacks against the priest rape victims MUST END. No more telling us because we did not punch our priests, we were responsible for our own rapes, or that we wanted to be raped and we enjoyed it and we are homosexuals because of it. No more blame games being put upon the victims of these evil crimes.
This is NOT a homosexual problem, this is a pedophile, hebephile and ephebophile problem. This is not just a sin, this is a crime, a FELONY crime and should be looked upon as such and these people whom have committed these crimes should be prosecuted. Just because they are the religious leaders of your church that does NOT give you the right to avoid prosecution for crimes you have committed, especially ones of rape, abuse and torture of children and teens. No more telling us priest rape survivors that we must forgive but must NEVER seek prosecution because that is Anti-Catholic and bigoted of us. Yes this problem exists in other denominations and other sections of the population. We find all of these crimes evil, disgusting and anyone whom rapes a child or covers it up should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and this means EVERYONE whom commits these crimes, whether they be a Roman Catholic or anyone else. Just because you wear a religious robe should NOT give you an out from being prosecuted for your crimes. If anything, they should be prosecuted with that much more vigor because these people portray themselves to be the moral leaders, the spiritual leaders, the head of the church. Jesus Christ would condemn them, so why should not we? Jesus Christ would say they should be prosecuted…for did he not say render unto God that which is Gods and render unto Man that which is Man’s? That means not only are we supposed to follow Gods laws, but mans laws to. Raping children and covering up these crimes are not only contrary to Gods laws, but man’s laws too.
In conclusion…if Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church wishes for us survivors of these evil, disgusting crimes against us, then they must first truly repent. This means doing all that I have described. If we were to forgive this, right now, without true repentance shown on your part Pope Francis then that would make us hypocrites.
For even Jesus Christ said…to be forgiven of your sins. you must first truly repent of your sins.
