This is crazy. Right where I'm from, actually my local priest was removed for this years ago. The number of victims is staggering.

ETA: On the news just now they said most of them will never face charges. Some are dead. Most of the cases are well beyond the statute of limitations.

This evil is saturated within religion, which protects the guilty. Almost seems

this is their *right* the reward for being religious.

No country is singled out for these perverts this has recently come to light in

the UK over four decades of abuse hidden and the perpetrators moved around

to avoid prosecution. The irony being these were top fee paying schools.....

Which means parents were paying huge fees for these children to be abused.


You couldnt make it up.



Pupils at Roman Catholic schools could still be at risk of sexual abuse despite years of efforts to remove predators and improve child safeguarding, an inquiry heard yesterday.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) has begun examining the prevalence of paedophilia among Benedictine monks and failures to protect young people.

It is focusing on offenders who targeted children at two famous Catholic public schools, Ampleforth in North Yorkshire and Downside in Somerset, over many decades.

But although numerous inquiries have exposed the problem of child abuse within church institutions and a string of offenders have been convicted, safety concerns are said to remain.

Yesterday, counsel to the inquiry Riel Karmy-Jones QC told a hearing in London the recorded allegations ‘go back many years... and they continue into the present day’.

A ‘wide spectrum of behaviour’, ranging from rape to voyeuristic beatings, was inflicted on school pupils over many years, the inquiry heard.

There were a number of reasons for cover-ups, including families being pressured not to report assaults, offenders getting shifted to different establishments but not punished, and complaints simply being ignored.

The reputational pressures, the cultural and theological factors which led to abuse being covered up in Catholic institutions have not gone away,’ he told the hearing. ‘They remain as powerful as ever.’

The Catholic Church and the institutions you hear from in these hearings will tell you that things are different now.

‘But the question you have to ask is this: when all the fuss from this inquiry has died down, can we really rely on these institutions voluntarily to ensure that they never slip back into old habits, even though the old temptations exist today as they surely did before?

The grand jury report said almost every instance of abuse is too old to be prosecuted. Mr. Shapiro renewed a call for state lawmakers to abolish such restrictions. He said state investigators uncovered evidence of other sexual assaults but couldn’t file criminal charges due to the statute of limitations.


I completely understand the statute of limitations. I don't think we need to be prosecuting people 20 years after they stole a CD or something. But for raping kids, the statute of limitations should be indefinite.

Only Lawrence Stebler made the list. Just letting you know.

Edit: word in the local "HOLY SEE" is, more may be added as there are those in retirement hospitals. There are many that are very old and awaiting their passing.
Time will tell.

What is it with the Catholic church and its rampant abuse of children?
Not a rhetorical question, why does this organization have so many of its clergy involved in these horrific crimes and their cover up?
To me its almost like its a sanctioned, secret order within the church that exists to corrupt the innocent, and if so to what malevolent ends it serves are a question that definitely needs an answer.
Thankfully it seems that this evil is being brought into the light, the people of many countries have said enough and demanded action from their authorities.
Australia recently had a royal commission into the institutional response to child sexual abuse that shone a bright light into some very dark places and had very real consequences for those involved, including the conviction and jailing of the Arch Bishop of Adelaide for covering up and concealing the abuse by priests in his diocese.
Lamb of Gods original band name? Burn the Priest! Lol.

The Mainstream Media says that Omarosa's pain is far more important than hundreds, or thousands of children being molested by their priests.

Satan owns the MSM.

Embarrassment, fear of coming forward, a fear of upsetting powerful people, not wanting to damage the image of something that is so important to so many

I hope that now that that is occurring any monster that abused children is punished to the full extent of the law

I hope so too. I would love to see some powerful people upset and on their way to deal with the redeemer as well.

Dirty, nasty, kiddy-rapers. They deserve no mercy once they've had their due process.

mind directing us to the meaning of your minimal post? This OP is about 301 Catholic related pedophiles in PA. what do you have to offer, other than name calling? Of which youre completely out of bounds.

I consider 300 folks in one are indicitive of a coordinated community, what do you think? As a parent, I am concerned, why arent you? The implications are huge.

What I don't understand, is how practicing Catholics can continue to support the church as it is currently constructed.

I understand you can't condemn everyone of a group for the actions of an individual. This goes way beyond the assaulting individuals though. There is obviously a widespread conspiracy to cover up horrible crimes against children, being part of any religious organization should not shield anyone involved from prosecution, and imprisonment.

Eat feces
This has NOTHING to do with red or blue.
This has to do with a criminal organization as sinister as the mafia.
The fact that you would try and tie this to "conservativism" tells me all needed to know about you.
No ACTUAL Christian organization would have ANYTHING to do with this other than leading law enforcement to the perps.
For crying out loud Jesus Christ championed the abused and downtrodden.
The only "Stupid" one here is you evidenced by your flaccid attempt to politicize this horror show.

To me this is WAY WAY past catholics.
Christian people should in NO way allow this garbage to represent them.

Well, in fairness, I know many non Catholic Christians that have a low opinion of the Catholic church. Don't lump them all together as being "represented" by Catholicism.

Who wouldn't with this behavior?
That's why it is important for christians to call this out.
Catholics are a large percentage of christians.
This behavior is criminal garbage and should be identified as such.

I get your point, but the fact that someone is a Christian IMO is irrelevant. Any decent human being should be aghast at the situation.

Perhaps legal action, or asset confiscation, with HUGE awards to the victims would get the popes attention.

I still think anyone, no matter their position, who new of these things, and didn't go to LE should be in prison for a very long time.

It's amazing how many more people on ATS and in the News Media, care about back-stabbing Omarosa, than they do about "Men of God" molesting children.

I'm watching ABC News Nightline at the moment. Omarosa is their top story. The molesting priests story will get the final 5 minutes.
