Report details sexual abuse by more than 300 priests in Pennsylvania’s Catholic Church

You want to keep your kid safe? Checking a list of so called “sex offenders” will do NOTHING to do that and actually assists the abuse of children by diverting attention from the REAL DANGER which is NOT A STRANGER but someone the child already knows! Hum…like a priest for example!

If you really want to do something that is PROVEN TO WORK then leave “sex offenders” along and simply keep your kids out of church!

Report details sexual abuse by more than 300 priests in Pennsylvania’s Catholic Church

(CNN)A new grand jury report says that internal documents from six Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania show that more than 300 “predator priests” have been credibly accused of sexually abusing more than 1,000 child victims.

“We believe that the real number of children whose records were lost or who were afraid ever to come forward is in the thousands,” the grand jury report says.
“Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all. For decades. Monsignors, auxiliary bishops, bishops, archbishops, cardinals have mostly been protected; many, including some named in this report, have been promoted. Until that changes, we think it is too early to close the book on the Catholic Church sex scandal.”
The lengthy report, released Tuesday afternoon, investigates clergy sexual abuse in six dioceses dating back to 1947. Pennsylvania’s two other dioceses, Philadelphia and Altoona-Johnstown, were the subjects of earlier grand jury reports, which found similarly damaging information about clergy and bishops in those dioceses.
“There have been other reports about child sex abuse within the Catholic Church. But never on this scale,” the grand jurors wrote in Tuesday’s report.

“For many of us, those earlier stories happened someplace else, someplace away. Now we know the truth: it happened everywhere.”
The grand jurors said that “almost every instance of abuse we found is too old to be prosecuted.” But charges have been filed against two priests, one in Erie diocese and another in Greensburg diocese, who have been accused of abusing minors.
“We learned of these abusers directly from their dioceses — which we hope is a sign that the church is finally changing its ways,” the grand jurors said. “And there may be more indictments in the future; investigation continues.”
At a news conference announcing the report’s release, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro called it the “largest, most comprehensive report into child sexual abuse within the Catholic Church ever produced in the United States.”

Molestations and rapes

At times, the lengthy catalog of clergy sexual abuses in the report is difficult to read. As the grand jurors note, priests and other Catholic leaders victimized boys and girls, teens and pre-pubescent children.
Some victims were plied with alcohol and groped or molested, the report says. Others were orally, vaginally or anally raped, according to the grand jurors.
“But all of them were brushed aside, in every part of the state, by church leaders who preferred to protect the abusers and their institution above all.”
Among the more egregious cases, the grand jury reports that:
• In the Greensburg diocese, a priest impregnated a 17-year-old, forged a pastor’s signature on a marriage certificate and divorced the girl months later. According to the grand jury, the priest was allowed to stay in ministry by finding a “benevolent bishop.”
• Another priest in Greensburg groomed middle-school students for sex, according to the grand jury, by telling them that Mary had to “bite off the cord” and “lick” Jesus clean after the Nativity.
• In Harrisburg, a priest abused five sisters from the same family and collected samples of their urine, pubic hair and menstrual blood.
• Also in Harrisburg, a priest raped a 7-year-old girl who was in the hospital after her tonsils were removed, according to the report.
• In Pittsburgh, church officials said that a 15-year-old boy “pursued” and “literally seduced” a priest. A church report later acknowledged that the priest had admitted to “sado-masochistic” activities with several boys.
• In the Allentown diocese, a priest admitted sexually molesting a boy and pleaded for help, according to documents, but was left in ministry for several more years.
• Also in Allentown, a priest who had abused several boys, according to the grand jury, was given a recommendation to work at Disney World.
Tuesday’s news conference began with a short video of three victims who told how they were abused and how it changed their lives.
An 83-year-old man said he couldn’t show any affection to his wife and children as a result of the abuse he suffered. A woman said the abuse started when she was 18 months old. Another man said, “When you have the priest touching you every day, that’s a hard memory to have. The first erection that you have is at the hands of a priest.”
The victims said this was “not a vendetta against the church” and that abusers have “to be accountable in the church for what they did.”

‘Grave failings’

The grand jury’s searing report comes as the Catholic Church, including Pope Francis, is struggling to contain a sexual abuse scandal rapidly consuming the church on several continents.
In Australia, a bishop has been found guilty of covering up sexual abuse. In Chile, the Pope was forced to recant his dismissal of an abuse scandal involving a prominent priest and bishops accused of covering up his crimes.
And in the United States, a prominent archbishop was removed from the powerful College of Cardinals following reports that he had molested a teenage altar boy and several others while he was rising through the church’s ranks. Meanwhile, bishops in Boston and Nebraska are investigating possible cases of sexual abuse in Catholic seminaries.
“The report of the Pennsylvania grand jury again illustrates the pain of those who have been victims of the crime of sexual abuse by individual members of our clergy, and by those who shielded abusers and so facilitated an evil that continued for years or even decades,” Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Bishop Timothy L. Doherty, chair of the bishops’ Committee for the Protection of Children and Young People, said in a statement.
“As a body of bishops, we are shamed by and sorry for the sins and omissions by Catholic priests and Catholic bishops.”
DiNardo and Doherty noted that the grand jury’s report spans 70 years, and many of the abuse accusations were made before 2002, when the bishops adopted new policies. The policies, known as the Dallas Charter, after the city in which they were adopted, have been revised in 2011 and 2018. The charter, the bishops said, “commits us to respond promptly and compassionately to victims, report the abuse of minors, remove offenders and take ongoing action to prevent abuse.”
For weeks, many Catholics in the United States had been warily waiting for the Pennsylvania grand jury’s report, especially as bishops in the state began publicly releasing the names of accused clergy in an apparent attempt to preempt some of the report’s findings.
In a statement on Monday before the report was published, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the former Bishop of Pittsburgh who now heads the Archdiocese of Washington, said the report “will be a reminder of the grave failings that the church must acknowledge and for which it must seek forgiveness.”
“We are now in the midst of a new era where our communal bonds of trust are once again being tested by the sin of abuse.”

Delays in publication

Court action had delayed the report’s publication. A number of individuals named in the report claimed that its findings were false or misleading, that they were denied due process of law and that its release would impair their reputations.
On July 27, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered the grand jury report to be released by 2 p.m. August 14 with redactions in sections where litigation was ongoing.
State Attorney General Josh Shapiro had written to Pope Francis on July 25, requesting that the Pontiff direct church leaders to stop “efforts to silence the survivors.”
“A comprehensive investigation by the Office of Attorney General found widespread sexual abuse of children and a systematic coverup by leaders of the Catholic Church,” Shapiro said in his letter. “Last month I planned to release the findings of our investigation. As I prepared to do so, anonymous petitioners implicated in this report went to court to stop me and silence the victims …”
Shapiro later issued a statement welcoming the state Supreme Court’s decision to allow the report’s release.
“Our fear throughout this process has been that the entire grand jury report would be shelved and victims’ truth would be silenced,” Shapiro said. “Today’s order ensures that will not be the case — the redacted report on widespread sexual abuse and cover up within the Catholic Church will be released.”
“I will continue to fight to ensure every single victim is heard and every priest, bishop and church official is held accountable for their abhorrent conduct. No one victim’s truth is any less important than another and no one’s criminal conduct any less loathsome.”

Harrisburg abuse list

On August 1, the leader of one of the largest Roman Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania released a list identifying 71 priests, deacons and seminarians accused of “substantiated” sexual misconduct over the past seven decades.
Bishop Ronald Gainer of the Harrisburg Diocese also issued an apology on behalf of the religious community.
“That conduct has left a legacy of pain and sorrow that is still being felt,” he wrote. “I apologize for these actions.”
While most men on the Harrisburg list are accused of sexually abusing children, others were investigated for inappropriate behavior, such as kissing or inappropriately communicating with a minor, Gainer wrote. Others were accused of viewing or possessing child pornography.
The list did not say how the diocese handled most of the accusations and did not give the men’s current whereabouts, though a few cases that were forwarded to civil authorities were more detailed.

Archbishop’s resignation

A long series of abuse allegations have rocked the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics since the scope of systemic abuse and cover-ups began emerging in 2002.

US Cardinal resigns over abuse allegations

In July, Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Archbishop Theodore McCarrick from the College of Cardinals, one of the church’s most powerful bodies, amid allegations of molestation and sexual misconduct. McCarrick, 88, had been a popular and politically influential leader in Washington. He maintained his innocence in June against some claims and has been unavailable to comment on others.
The sexual abuse accusations against McCarrick reveal a “grievous moral failure” within the Catholic Church, the president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops said July 31.
“Our Church is suffering from a crisis of sexual morality,” Daniel DiNardo said. “The way forward must involve learning from past sins.”

 

Looking for Sexual Predators forget the registry

Look no further than your government!

You think that the government would stop wasting valuable tax payer money continuing sex offender registries and the millions it takes to maintain these useless lists and the countless man hours needed to monitor people who have already paid their debt to society right…well not when it’s so easy and profitable! All the while children in government care/custody are being sexually molested by their very own personal!

Sickening details for the shocking article:

The more than 1,000 pages of police reports and logs detail incidents dating back to the surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America in 2014 during the Obama administration. But immigrant advocates, psychologists and officials who formerly oversaw the shelters say the Trump administration’s harsh new policies have only increased pressures on the facilities, which often are hard-pressed to provide adequate staffing for kids who suffer from untold traumas and who now exist in a legal limbo that could shape the rest of their lives.

“If you’re a predator, it’s a gold mine,” said Lisa Fortuna, director of child and adolescent psychiatry at Boston Medical Center. “You have full access and then you have kids that have already had this history of being victimized.”

Florida Sex Offender Registry – Fake Numbers and Fake “News”

Florida prides itself on the large number of RSOs in the state (it is currently number 3) but the reality is this: The numbers are just fake news and outright lies!

Over half of those listed on the Florida state sex offender registry do NOT EVEN LIVE IN FLORIDA!

Of the small amount who do live within the state of Florida MOST should not be listed at all because they do NOT present ANY danger to the public at all! Everything from totally victim-less crimes, online stings, sex of the beach, you name it!

Most do not know these simple facts. They fear everyone as if they are dangerous when that is NOT the truth – it is a lie told by law enforcement and the state of Florida and it’s “leaders” such as Senator Lauren Book!

The government is no stranger to using propaganda to manipulate the masses. Whether it is using patriotism or emotions. What better way than to exploit the natural instinct to protect their child! So taking a page directly from the Nazi handbook, low level sex offenders (victim-less crimes) are demonized right along with actual sexual predators (actually victims involved) and used as scapegoats!

Government and law enforcement use this technique to manipulate the general public all the time…especially with sex offenders

By exploiting/praying on parent’s innate/natural drive to “protect” their offspring at ALL costs (including the denial of reality) the government created a “boogeyman” called sex offenders.

You are told these dangerous individuals are lurking everywhere…the problem is that it is all a total LIE told NOT to protect children BUT to create diversion! By keeping parents in a constant state of fear and then making and claiming that the sex offender registry will show where these monsters are and you just avoid them.

Sounds logical perhaps but it doesn’t work and it gets worse…it actually creates diverts attention from those most likely to victimize a child – Someone the child or family already knows – NOT a stranger!

Politicians like Lauren Book and her daddy lobbyist  Ron Book (can you guess what he lobbies for) have made a career out of her being a “professional” victim. This pair seem to have nothing found the golden goose in spreading their hate mongering in Florida. So sad that the public is fed lies by these 2 and that by believing these lies are actually putting their children and grandchildren at greater risk. Public servant – Right! Not Lauren Book

Detaining immigrant kids is now a billion-dollar industry – ONLY IN AMERICA FOLKS

Not only is law enforcement violating the sanctity of the family unit by tearing innocent children away from their parents but they are also making a huge profit from it!

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Detaining immigrant children has morphed into a surging industry in the U.S. that now reaps $1 billion annually — a tenfold increase over the past decade, an Associated Press analysis finds.

While the United States claims that it’s harassment/registry/punishment of “sex offenders” is to “protect children” it has no problem at all abusing children AND making a profit at the same time! What could be more American than that – sounds a lot like the $ex offender business model doesn’t it.

Bottom line is that it is very evident that money is the only motive for these actions just as with the useless waste of funds that sex offender registers are proven beyond any doubt to be as well.

37 US Children Die In Hot Cars Each Year” SHOCKING HEADLINE RIGHT! Those children are killed by parents – NOT by a stranger and NOT by a sex offender!

Now just imagine if the MILLIONS of dollars WASTED on the proven useless sex offender registry and All that wasted money monitoring “sex offenders” – Watching parents who are more likely to abuse/kill a child would be a much better use of those funds! Pathetic!

Clearly sex offender registries are just “feel good” laws which do NOTHING to protect children and EVERYTHING to ignore reality – The reality that a child is 95% more likely to be abused and/or killed by SOMEONE THEY ALREADY KNOW – NOT a stranger OR someone on any registry or list!

If Florida and federal governments really wanted to protect children they would spend the MONEY WASTED on monitoring and punishing those who have paid their debt to society and yet are labelled as “sex offenders” and never allowed to move forward!

Sensationalize Much!?!

Here is a story that VIVIDLY illustrates how the whore media will manipulate the headlines to sell papers (or get views). This is a typical “new story” about a person who happens to be (among countless other things) a “sex offender.” They are dehumanized and stereotyped into a faceless sub-human to be shunned and feared – they are not seen as human but rather as just a “sex offender.” The media will ALWAYS refer to a sex offender’s past regardless of how long ago OR the circumstances that caused the sex offender label.

So when a father abducts his own daughter what does the media use as the headline?
“Father sought after abducting daughter.” Nope that’s not what they used although it is true…just not juicy enough for anyone to really read more – SO –

Here is what this news source actually used:
Armed sex offender allegedly abducts baby from Virginia gas station, police issue Amber Alert

The news "forgot" to mention that the sex offender IS the child's FATHER

The news “forgot” to mention that the sex offender IS the child’s FATHER!

No mention that it was a RELATIVE – NOT A STRANGER but rather someone the child ALREADY KNOWS – in this case the child’s father!

The news outlet know that all anyone reads these days are the short “Twitter like” headlines – most will NOT read the article and only see that the sensationalized headline of “Armed Sex Offender Abducts baby” which in itself actually is #FakeNews since it is deliberately misleading! This is not reporting but done to perpetuate the proven LIE that those on the bloated and useless registry are the ones who need to be watched!

ARMED – SEX OFFENDER – ABDUCTS – BABY / All keywords that trigger the emotions of the reader!

This was a family issue over-dramatized to get the term sex offender out there in a negative way at any time them can! COME ON! Sure sex sells and anything slightly deviant sexually really sells because there is nothing that sexually repressed American’s love to read about than people getting in trouble for anything sexually related! America is so pathetic.

If Only Lincoln Were Alive Today…

“As a nation, we began by declaring that ‘all men are created equal.’ We now practically read it ‘all men are created equal, except negroes.’ When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read ‘all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.’ When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty – to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.”
― Abraham LincolnLincoln Letters

 

Lincoln was speaking of the inequality of how the constitutions was being applied and how it excluded blacks or as Lincoln put it “negroes.” He then goes on to illustrate the consequences of excluding anyone by expanding additional groups to the list “‘all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.” He was making a point that it can exclude groups endlessly if that is the case and just as with blacks in Lincoln’s day it is sex offenders in the present day!

Just read Lincoln’s words and change negroes for sex offenders. Lincoln got it because he understood the constitution made it illegal to exclude anyone from it’s protection. What is it that politicians in today’s America don’t get? I think it is clear as it has been shown again and again they get it they just don’t care about the constitution or the people but rather are only interested in power and money.

Sex-offender registries under attack for violating ex-offenders’ constitutional rights – GOOD!

Oklahoma’s attorney general – Michael Hunter spouts the same bullshit of fear:

“For the national database to work, the states and federal data need to be knitted together, and for one state to be exempted from the registry puts citizens of all states in danger,” Michael Hunter, Oklahoma’s attorney general, told The Washington Times.

It is obvious that the registries are not needed – PERIOD. They don’t work and violate the constitutional rights of nearly 1 million american citizens!

They are also based a faulty data and lies (although when has that mattered to politicians)!

Those who have paid their price have been punished and have earned the right to be free…fully free…not registered like dogs.

They have been deemed safe enough to be released…if they were not they would be either locked up OR on some sort of probation.

The registry is just public shaming and provides a false sense of safety claiming that those who have been caught will do it again – FALSE

By fooling parents into a this false sense of security they actually lower their guard to the REAL DANGER which is NOT someone one a list but rather someone NOT on a list and furthermore, NOT a stranger but someone the family and/or child ALREADY KNOW.

DUMP THE REGISTRY AND CONCENTRATE ON ACTUALLY PROTECTING CHILDREN.

Stop this political game and do the right thing not only for former offender (there are not such thing as sex offenders – made up meaningless label) but also for the sake of the children they claim to be protecting.
