It's amazing that the Catholic church still exists. Now if this happened to a church of Scientology, Muslims... or any other medium to small sized religions, it would be all over the MSM. This seems to be more of a practice of more and more people as time goes on. Maybe we are just hearing about it more, but have you ever looked on the website that shows were sexual predators live?

Just to let you know where I stand with religion: I was raised a Catholic... but I am certainly not a practicing one. Luckily, I made the transition to being more spiritual in nature.

Following a three-year investigation in the Dublin Archdiocese, the country’s largest, the report concluded that four archbishops routinely protected abusers and failed to inform police of the allegations. One priest admitted to sexually abusing over 100 children, while another confessed that he had abused on a fortnightly basis over 25 years. “The volume of revelations of child sexual abuse by clergy over the past 35 years or so has been described by a Church source as a ‘tsunami’ of sexual abuse,” said the report…. The judicial probe discovered that the archbishops did not report abuse to police until the 1990s as part of a culture of secrecy and to try and avoid damaging the reputation of the Church. The report said: “All other considerations, including the welfare of children and justice for victims, were subordinated to these priorities”. It found children who complained “were often met with denial, arrogance and cover-up and with incompetence and incomprehension in some cases. Suspicions were rarely acted on”.

The 750-page landmark report by judge Yvonne Murphy is damning in its criticism of failures to protect vulnerable children. The probe examined complaints of abuse of over 320 children involving a representative sample of 46 priests in the Dublin Archdiocese between 1975 and 2004.... Full Article at Source Above.

I'm of the opinion that should any one of the abused kids decide to carry out revenge on this worthless pervert we all should turn the other eye, and a full pardon should be in place should the avenger be caught.

These'Priests' are in no shape or form a 'Men of God' in the wildest stretch of the imagination. They're just a waste of oxygen.

Well well well... Looks like the Police in Ireland were helping the Catholic church cover up this abuse as well...
Ireland report into abuse by Catholic priests finds police coverup
Source:



Dublin, Ireland – That the Catholic church covered up sexual abuse by priests for years is hardly news anymore. But the highest-profile investigation into abuse allegations yet in Ireland found another breach of public trust: The Garda Síochána, the police force for the republic, failed to investigate reports of priest abusing children and conspired to protect Catholic officials in Dublin for 30 years. The commission on child abuse by Catholic priests in Dublin led by Judge Yvonne Murphy released its long-awaited report on the matter last week. Justice Murphy's commission investigated how allegations of child sex abuse by priests in the Catholic archdiocese of Dublin were dealt with by both state and church authorities from 1975 to 2004. The report slammed the Catholic hierarchy in Ireland and, for the first time, reprimanded state agencies, particularly the Garda.
