Quote:Victims of Abuse by Religious Order Priests Say Their Claims Fall Through the Cracks


When Larry Antonsen decided to report a priest who sexually abused him during high school, he believed the Archdiocese of Chicago was the right place to go.

Mr. Antonsen and his wife were lifelong churchgoers who sent their children to Sunday school and counted themselves as members of a parish in the archdiocese. The priest Mr. Antonsen was accusing had spent 14 years working at Chicago-area Catholic high schools.

But Mr. Antonsen, who is now 72, said reporting the allegations dropped him into a maze of church bureaucracy, in which his accusations were passed from one office to another before being quietly set aside.

Quote:50 Jesuits Are Named as Abusers, Including Some From Top-Ranked N.Y. Catholic Schools


Sort of puts that old Jesuit motto "give me the boy for 7 years and I will give you the man" in proper perspective.

Speaking of horny jesuit perverts!

Quote:Jesuit School, Others Settle Haiti Sex Abuse Case for $60M



More than 130 people who say they were sexually abused as children at a now-defunct charity school in Haiti have reached a $60 million settlement with a Jesuit university in Connecticut and other defendants. 

The settlement was announced Friday and must be approved by a federal judge in Hartford.

At this point one has to wonder if there were any pervert priests who didn't diddle the kiddies!


RE: Damned Catholics - Minimalist - 01-28-2019

Guess they are worried about a future shortage of kids!

Some Catholic leaders want Cuomo excommunicated over abortion law; Dolan not likely to do it

Quote:Albany Bishop Edward Scharfenberger said during a Fox News Channel appearance on Saturday, “I certainly understand the outrage and the anger” of those calling for Cuomo, a Catholic who was once an altar boy, to be excommunicated.

While saying such decisions are outside his jurisdiction, Scharfenberger called excommunication “a last resort,” but added that “as the governor continues to distance himself from our communion, it may unfortunately result in that.”


Go fuck yourself, you pervert bastard.

Hay, Frankie.... your pervert priests don't seem to be getting the message!

Quote:Pope Francis said Monday celibacy for priests was a “gift to the Church” and not “optional”, nixing the prospect of married men being ordained.
“Personally I think that celibacy is a gift to the Church,” the pope told journalists aboard his plane returning to the Vatican from Panama.
“Secondly, I don’t think optional celibacy should be allowed. No,” he said.

Yee Haw.... Texass gets into the pervert priest act.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/31/us/priests-abuse-texas.html?partner=rss&emc=rss

Quote:Catholic Church in Texas Names Nearly 300 Priests Accused of Sex Abuse

“The bishops of Texas have decided to release the names of these priests at this time because it is right and just and to offer healing and hope to those who have suffered,” the cardinal said. “On behalf of all who have failed in this regard, I offer my sincerest apology. Our church has been lacerated by this wound and we must take action to heal it.”

There are an estimated 8.5 million Catholics in Texas, according to the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops, making it one of the most heavily Catholic states in the country. The church there has been in a state of crisis since dozens of local and federal agents raided the offices of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston in November as part of an investigation into a sexual abuse case.


 I imagine this is going to cost them a few shekels.

RE: Damned Catholics - Minimalist - 02-13-2019

So now it seems as if the catholicks and the baptists are in a race to see which has the most perverts in the pulpits.

Where will it end?

Quote:New Jersey Catholic churches release names of 180 pedophile priests

Quote:New Jersey's five Roman Catholic dioceses listed more than 180 priests Wednesday who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing minors over a span of several decades, joining more than two dozen other states that have named suspected abusers in the wake of a landmark grand jury report in Pennsylvania last year.

Just a hunch.


RE: Damned Catholics - Minimalist - 02-20-2019

And now Pope Fuckface has answered the question by saying "the devil made them do it."   Ignorant shit.

Quote:Pope Francis denounces constant accusers of Catholic Church as abuse survivors express anger

Quote:Pope Francis said on Wednesday that people who spent their lives denouncing the Catholic Church were friends of the devil, as survivors of sexual abuse by clergymen accused him of snubbing an invitation to meet them.

Quote:“It would seem that the Pope, once again, is giving the two fingers to survivors and to child protection everywhere,” he said, using an English expression for a crude gesture.

That would be a slight improvement from what his pervert priests did!

More dirt for the fucking church to sweep under the rugs.

It's not just the Roman Catholics that hides and harbours paedophiles;  so do the Anglican and Jewish religions.

Rabbis' absolute power: How sex abuse tore apart Australia's Orthodox Jewish community

The cast is Jewish, yet the bones of this story are familiar to anyone who has followed the scandal of child abuse in
Christian schools and parishes. Rabbis and bishops have shown over the years much the same failings when faced
with a choice between guarding the prestige of their faiths and the safety of children. This story is about the dangers
in any cult of blind obedience to holy men.

How very Trumpish of these pervert catholick fucks.

Quote:Cardinal admits Church files on pedophile priests ‘destroyed’



Quote:A top Catholic cardinal admitted Saturday that Church files on priests who sexually abused children were destroyed or never even drawn up, a move which allowed paedophiles to prey on others.
“Files that could have documented the terrible deeds and named those responsible were destroyed, or not even created,” German Cardinal Reinhard Marx told a landmark Vatican summit on tackling paedophilia in the clergy.
“Instead of the perpetrators, the victims were regulated and silence imposed on them.

Really.  It is time our politicians grew some balls and indicted the whole fucking perverted lot of them under the RICO statutes.

Setting aside the devastating impact on victims and the gross breaches of law, how do these people actually square any of it with their religious beliefs?  Surely they should be expecting that their God will fry the lot of them, perpetrators and their defenders alike.  Or do they really believe that beaming up a few prayers to heavenly father will be adequate contrition to get them off the hook?   Angry

Don't know about other religions but Christians, yes, a handful of the right "forgive me" prayers does get them off the religious hook (the Church will get them off the secular hook), and the really pernicious thing is they know that before they commit their crimes.

I've given over to calling the RCC "WEMBLA"- World Encompassing Man Boy Love Association. Though I must admit that all of that nun-raping doesn't help.

In view of the Vatican's latest public relations charade this seems particularly appropriate.
