Sex abuse Scandal, US Catholic Church

Dez 17, 2022, 11:01 am

With sadness I post this on this site because I am not allowed to post the truth next door at "Traditional Catholic". Some statistics on the ongoing abuse scandal just in America. (1) It took 766 days to issue the McCarrick report. (2) Francis has failed to respond to Archbishop Vigano's (papal nuncio to the US) allegations 1600 days ago. (3) 9 bishops have resigned. (4) 6,754 clergy have been credibly accused of sexual abuse. (5) 27 diocese have declared bankruptcy. (6) 20 states have active investigations. (7) there are 20,100 victims of sexual abuse. (8) 4 billion has been paid out in abuse settlements....JMJ....

Fr Rupnik is now the new boulder running down the Vatican Hill. "Rupnik Gate" as it is now being called is once again calling to attention to the lack of transparency coming from this transparent pope. This world renowned artist, Jesuit, and associate of the popes' has been accused of crimes for so long the statute of limitations has squashed most of em. Not all however Rupnik got himself excommunicated for the heinous crime of absolving someone he commited a crime with. The coverup with this elite jesuit goes right to the top. In Jan he has a private audience with the pope and somehow after pressure exerted by Rupnik himself gets himself UN-excommunicated. This kind of corruption flows downhill. Meanwhile Traditional Catholic priests all over the western world are being persecuted for being as Francis himself says, to rigid and backward....JMJ....

With current scandals rocking the Holy See we find out Tuesday that since 1974 the Congregation of St Basil, the Basilians in Toronto, a list was made public of the predation of minors and homosexual active clerics involved with post pubescent boys. The yearlong investigation by City News revealed the problem was rooted in homosexual clerics and the coverup of their crimes involving teenage boys and minors, these creeps have managed to keep this under their cowls for 50 years....JMJ....

Another "revered" catholic Jean Vanier who founded the international L'arch federation a man who was "revered", established a cult of disgusting sexual degradations of at least 25 mentally disabled adult women. Vanier and his "spiritual father" a Dominican priest Fr Phillipe abused these women we know off no telling how many women were abused by these perverts, for over 38 years. These big shot catholics sure know how to coverup their deviance. PF even eulogized Vanier as a "great" christian. The twisted theology of these two perverts and resulting sexual abuse could not have been kept a secret for all these years when will we stop covering these perverts?....JMJ....

Yes, very tragic. I myself always thought of Jean Vanier as a "great Christian", as apparently did your "PF", whoever those initials stand for, and much of the rest of the world. There's no doubt L'Arche did a lot of good, and Vanier's writings have been very helpful for many people. I think it shows how devious sexual abusers can be at hiding their activities for many years, decades even, grooming and intimidating their victims into silence. Most sexual abusers (at least before the internet era of online grooming) are not some shadowy figure "out there" but someone we know, love and trust - a parent, a relative, a friend, a neighbour, a teacher, a priest, a sports coach, a scoutmaster, a work colleague, a police officer - and the first reaction when their abuse is exposed is always complete disbelief that this person could have done such a thing. I know personally some sexual abusers who have been caught, and I suspect all of us unwittingly know sexual abusers who have not yet been caught, and we will be shocked when we learn of them.

We're constantly discovering historic cases of abuse in churches and faith communities, not only the Catholic Church, but most faith communities have now put in place robust safeguarding protocols to limit sexual abuse and to prevent cover ups - I say "limit" because there will always be abusers and as with any crime, no matter how vigilant a society is, it is impossible to eradicate it completely. I'm familiar to some extent or other with the safeguarding protocols and procedures in a number of Catholic dioceses and organisations, and the Anglican communion. I know a lot of bishops, priests and laity who are working very hard on this issue. I'm sure you're aware that Pope Francis has just extended the scope of the Catholic Church's norms concerning sexual abuse to include lay leaders of Catholic organisations and not just clergy, so this would include the likes of Vanier (link). As new cases emerge, faith communities are learning and adapting. Our prayers are with the victims and all those who are working to prevent abuse, and we must pray also for the perpetrators.

Fr. Hans Zollner part of the Jesuit cabal running the Church has resigned his Pontifical commission on the protection of children. Zollner will probably head into the Jesuit ice box for his comments on the way the commission is run, In his swan song resignation statement Zollner criticises the Commission in his perception of where it is going, (jesuit ambiguity) in areas of responsibility, compliance. accountability, and transparency, not to mention his questioning the financial accounting of the commission, staffing issues, and decision making, in other words I'm outta here this is to deep church for me see ya....AMDG....

Easter Bombshell presented to the Church by Maryland AG. More than 150 priests are acussed in the Baltimore diocsese of Maryland (1st in US) of sexually abusing 600 children that they know off. In one parish 11 perverts took part in molesting 100 children. The coverups are staggering and still going on. even this report is redacted to protect grand jury material (the identities of other abusers) The culpability of the Church Hierarchy from Rome to the dioceses is in question....AMDG....

As usual you do not cite any source. I've found several articles related to this story. Let's take the AP story, Catholic church in Maryland slammed after sex abuse report, as representative.

I note a few points. This is about historical abuse going back 80 years. It is not about current abuse. The archdiocese had released a list of priests associated with child sexual abuse, but it seems some names were omitted. The sexual abuse survivors' group SNAP is quoted as saying that some omissions “might be understandable”, while calling for the archbishop to “err on the side of being more transparent”. The archdiocese acknowledged the discrepancies. 33 of the 39 missing names have died, and most didn’t make the list because they are laypeople, including deacons and teachers; they were never assigned to ministry in the Archdiocese of Baltimore; or they were first accused posthumously and received only a single, uncorroborated allegation. The archdiocese is reviewing its list “in light of the Attorney General’s report” and expects to add more names soon, probably expanding the list to include non-priests. The current archbishop did not contest the allegations in the report, saying in a statement that it served as a “sad and painful reminder of the tremendous harm caused to innocent children and young people by some ministers of the Church” (link). And the State of Maryland is passing legislation that would eliminate the existing statute of limitations on civil litigation against institutions like the archdiocese in cases of child sexual abuse, which should help to investigate and prosecute these historical cases.

I usually stay out of this group. Also, brone's posts are difficult to follow, so I won't reply to them directly.

However, I'm here because at the same time I'm looking up materials to introduce my child to contemporary (opposed to historical) Catholicism as a part of our home studies on the world's religions, I'm repeatedly faced with mention of the sexual perversions of church leaders targeting children and women.

Understanding the systematic culture of sexual abuse seems like an important part of understanding Catholicism and possibly Christianity as a whole in the affects of religious practices on people's daily lives.

So, I'm dropping links to return to when I can better stomach this news.

Thanks for your post. You're right that it is difficult to stomach. There are no excuses. All I can say is that the Church has, far too slowly and timidly, put in place measures to make new cases of abuse far more difficult (no crime will ever be made completely impossible in any society), and has begun, again too slowly and inadequately, to deal with the cases of historical abuse. There are many, many Catholic bishops, priests, nuns and lay people working very hard to prevent abuse and to deal with the past cases, and the tide has definitely turned, the culture shifted, and some at least of the systemic issues are beginning to be addressed. There are few new cases and it is far more difficult to cover them up, but unfortunately there is still a small hard core who resist attempts to deal with the past. There is a lot of good in our Church, and it is a tragedy that there are some who still resist efforts to weed out the bad. As a committed Catholic, and as one who has played a small role in introducing and implementing safeguarding measures in my own bits of the Church, I suppose all I can say is, sorry, or in a phrase recognisable to Catholics, mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Our hearts go out to the victims.

This commandment is that "all the differences whatsoever between male and female must be abolished.

The Transgender ideology's willingness to sacrifice a child's happiness and memories to one's own gratification as a drag queen "twerking" in the face of a child of kindergarten age presented to us by photographers and an indulgent media as mainstream America is the ultimate and absolute evil of our day. The refusal to recognize the innocese of a child, the refusal to take an interest in that child's welfare is the ideology that would detroy the innocense of all children this is an ostentatious and provocative contempt for Catholic moral teaching. We must have more comdemnations of these sinful acts from Rome and local churches. Fake catholics who support this ideology are rife with hypocracy, of acting: that of "playing church" these "catholic" politicians turn sacred things into occasions of amusement, endearment and political sanctimoniousness.

>17 brone: a drag queen "twerking" in the face of a child of kindergarten age

In the UK we have a long tradition of performers dressing up as the opposite sex in family comedy pantomimes based on well known fairy tales, and it includes bawdy comic innuendo, which often passes over the heads of the younger children who are enthralled by the slapstick comedy, the songs and the audience interaction ("He's behind you!" "Oh no he isn't!" "Oh yes he is!" "Oh no he isn't!" "Oh yes he is!" repeated ad nauseam) while the adults snigger at the double entendre, a classic form of British humour. These range from high profile performances featuring famous actors and celebrities, to local amateur productions. There's usually a man dressed as a comedic cantankerous old woman such as a Widow Twankie figure, or the two sisters in Cinderella, the evil queen in Snow White, the witch in Hansel and Gretel. The young male lead is traditionally played by a woman dressed as a man, such as Dick Whittington, Prince Charming, Aladdin or Peter Pan. Families have taken their kindergarten age children to see this for generations, and it's considered a normal and much anticipated form of family entertainment, especially over the Christmas and summer holiday seasons. Good, harmless, traditional family fun.

In these more enlightened times there are questions as to whether some of the traditional pantomime lyrics are racist, sexist and homophobic, but pantomimes are still immensely popular and I don't think there's any traction in claiming they "destroy the innocence of all children". We British are considered rather prudish compared to the rest of Europe, but it seems Americans out-prude us! Long may pantomimes continue to delight innocent young children!

Editado: Abr 15, 3:24 am

I think the innocence of the children is more likely to be hurt by having to pass through a demonstration to get to a book reading that their parents have chosen to take them to.

Far right activists have been demonstrating about a children's book reading here in Vienna at the House where LGBT+ people get support. The whole big deal made of it made me wish I had children to take to the event.

On April 17th, 92 year old Uncle Ted McCarrick is charged with another sexabuse crime this one involving an eleven-year-old boy for 7 years Ole Ted is also accused of "sharing" the child with other perverts at parties. Meanwhile in Chicago Cupcake Cupich is selling St Adalberts Catholic church which has long been the Apex of Polish Catholics in Chicago. Danny Davidson well noted "celebrity entertainer" who puts on Homoerotic simulated orgies for the elite as private "luxury" shows in a Jewish Synagoque in Miami featuring Madona's daughter Lourdes in a sleaze performance. Danny reports the sale of St Adalberts he will preserve its religious Identity while satanic orgies are performed. I somehow don't get the impression that Cupcake will be sending any money to his brother bishop in Ondo Nigeria to help in the relief of suffering there, or do I think ole cupcake will restore the Latin Mass in those parishes he shut down.

One of many examples showing that sex abuse and failure by the institution to act on it is not limited to the Catholic Church, or for that matter to the Christian faith community.

May 13th On the day Our Lady appeared at Fatima some noteworthy developments occured, Bergoglio in a meeting with his jesuit brothers in Hungary voiced his consideration of offering "Christian love" love to pedophile priests. I suppose this would apply to "Fr" Michael Zacharias who was convicted of three counts of sex trafficking young boys commercially in Ohio. He "groomed them while in the seminary became their trusted friend and mentor, then abused them and blackmailed them into silence. Mike deserves "christian love" I'm all for that when Mikey is behind bars for life. on May 13th at the prestigious college of the Great Saint Ignacious Loyola three protesting students were shouted down because they felt a drag queen show on a "catholic" jesuit run college is inappropriate.

The self-perpetuating problem of Homosexuality in the Church is simple, homosexual seminarians become homosexual priests, who become homosexual bishops, who become homosexual cardinals, who then vote for a pope who himself maybe a homosexual or sympathetic to advancing homosexuality. The longer the ordination of homosexuals, the more pervasive homosexuality becomes in the church until the ultimate effrontery to God a "synod" or "pope" declares that homosexual acts are no longer sinful-dispite every word in Holy Scipture condemning it as well as 2000 years of Church teaching....AMDG....

>29 brone:

Is homosexuality really a "problem", or is it simply an issue which all Christian churches are struggling to come to terms with in the light of our current understanding of sexuality?

There has always been and still is a very large number of homosexual bishops and priests, so this is actually not a new thing. There's a thread somewhere on LT with the title "The Catholic Church is hoaching with gay priests", quoting from a published article, and there's another thread somewhere about gay saints. I'm travelling at the moment and can't immediately find them on my phone, but if anyone wants, I can cite them next week.

As for every word in Holy Scripture condemning it, that is simply not true. There are actually very few references to it in the bible, and each of them needs to be unpacked in its specific context using the tools of biblical exegesis.

And while it may be true that 2000 years of Church teaching condemns it, in practice, for most of that period, the Church has been very tolerant of homosexual clergy on a "don't ask, don't tell" basis.

And finally, homosexuality per se has nothing to do with sexual abuse. There is a minority of both homosexual and heterosexual clergy who commit abuse, while the vast majority of both sexual orientations don't.

Indeed most of them are from an ageing generation and will not be with us for too much longer. May they rest in peace as they face judgement by the only Judge who is both truly just and infinitely merciful. But it is not just one generation. Sexual abuse and its cover up, whether by clergy or by anybody else, is a perennial problem which goes back millennia if not to the beginning of modern human existence hundreds of thousand years ago. Snide remarks about fine Italian restaurants will not make it go away, but the measures which churches and other institutions are implementing, as well as increased awareness within society at large, can at least reduce the opportunities for sexual abuse and make it more difficult to cover up. The tone of your posts suggests schadenfreude and a desire to snipe at church leaders whom you disagree with on an ideological basis rather than a genuine attempt to deal with the issue.
