The strongest offense comes from the Foundling Fathers and this one really gets to me because I understand what abuse is. I have seen and witnessed enough as a human being for 75 years and as a reporter.

The Church has the authority to make changes but the older white haired Cardinals and Bishops, the real guilt lays with them for the coverups, they have their rules and they are set in stone, lifelong scumbags.  Its nothing but a huge cash business run like a Bee-Hive, a collective of money, debauchery,  and cover-ups.

  • It’s a sham and a shame.  When will women be allowed to become priests, and also be allowed to marry a man, not a picture, not a statue, not a cross instead of a bunch of drones, 
    Nuns is the correct name. They have none, get none, nothing , nada. They are like the drones in a bee-hive, subservient lower ranking of the species. The Pope is the Queen bee and the Soldier bees,  the Cardinal and Bishops.

  • When will priests be allowed to marry, they are human too, aren’t they?  How can a priest who is celebrant talk to a married couple or a couple about to be married, about anything concerning marriage, he hasn’t a frickin clue.   It’s so obviously out-dated, prejudiced, imvicillic and stupid and if you tell me it doesn’t relate to this abomination the church suffers from, rape sodomy , pedophilia, abuse, trickery, lieing, and hidden legalities covered by the upper ranking, using the Lords name for personal sexual gain, then you are my friend really an idiot.  Let us not get into what really happened during history when the Popes had their way.

  • Some of the clergy need to be just more than let go by the Church, they were shipped elsewhere, swept under the carpet, given non-public jobs.  None were changed with civil offenses.  Why since pedophilia and sexual abuse is a civilian crime were they not charged with rape and sodomy.  In my world they should be castrated, not the chemical kind and then dumped in a prison within the general population.  Other scumbags in prison would take care of these scumbags nicely and efficiently.

  • Why are they not behind bars. Because the church itself is corrupt and lives in the dark.  Lest you come up with a better answer, greed and power rule here, by virtue of fear motivation and eventually the excommunication from the club.  This is in essence, five star bullshit. 
  • How many of the 1000 or so victims lives are now filled with lifelong guilt and corrosive feelings.  Three hundred priests took advantage over the years and not one was ever tried or sent to legal trials.

  • THE WORLD HAS heard it again and again — heartfelt, ringing pledges by Pope Francis and his predecessors that the Vatican, at long last, has gotten the message on the global epidemic of clerical sex abuse.   •  These often have been followed by half-measures, equivocations, inertia and even outright contempt for accusers, who in most cases were victimized as children.


•  Now, five years into his papacy, there are signs, at last, that Pope Francis is starting to get it.  In an extraordinary move, he summoned all 34 of Chile’s bishops to the Vatican last month for an emergency summit and dressing-down, accusing them of collective responsibility for systematically ignoring and covering up for pedophile priests over decades. 


•  Upon the conclusion of the three-day session , every one of the Chilean bishops offered to resign — an unprecedented gesture. Then, on Monday, the Vatican announced the pope had accepted the resignation of Mr. Barros and two other bishops; an official described it as a first step in reordering the Chilean church. 


•  A leading American cardinal who met with Pope Francis on Thursday to discuss the sex abuse crisis that has engulfed the Roman Catholic Church is facing criticism over his management of a priest who was arrested this week on charges of indecency with children.  The cardinal, Daniel N. DiNardo, of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, has been accused of knowing about at least two episodes of sexual abuse by a priest, who was allowed to remain in ministry for years.  During the course of more than a decade as pastor of a Texas church, the priest, Manuel La Rosa-Lopez, was also appointed by Cardinal DiNardo to a leadership role in the archdiocese as episcopal vicar for Hispanics.


•   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.” 

•  The grand jury described the church’s methods as “  playbook for concealing the truth" after FBI agents identified a series of practices they found in diocese files.  The lengthy report, released Tuesday afternoon, investigates clergy sexual abuse dating to 1947 in six dioceses: Allentown, Erie, Greensburg, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh and Scranton. 

Pennsylvania's two other dioceses, Philadelphia and Altoona-Johnstown, have been the subjects of earlier grand jury reports, which found similarly damaging information about clergy and bishops in those dioceses.


According to the John Jay report commissioned by the US Bishops, allegations of sexual abuse were made in 1950-2002 against 4,392 priests. The number is generally believed to underestimate the problem. A few bishops have released the names of accused priests, but no official list exists of US priests who have abused children and vulnerable adults. On their website is the most complete list currently available, culled from media reports and legal documents with many photos, assignment records, and source articles.

There are fewer convictions because the legal standards for criminal cases are higher than for civil cases and often criminal statute of limitations has run out for adults who were sexually abused as children by clergy. The accused are often influential and well liked in their communities. 

The ‘do-gooder’ citizens are often in denial that such a Godly figure could possibly have committed one or more of these crimes. The clergy that molests children generally do so with children from broken homes or dysfunctional homes or the poor. The churches hesitate to report clergy to police making the police officers jobs extremely difficult to build a case on

Often parents of the sexually abused child decline to be interviewed and 99% of children abused by clergy will deny it. If a clergy is suspected of the sexual abuses of one or more children they are moved out of state and thus have committed no crime and are innocent.

I am dismayed at the coverup of this corruptness in the Catholic Church. Is the Catholic Church the only sect to be blamed? NO.   But it was the one that was heavily defended and swept under the table by the HOLY SEE.  I'm afraid, the answer is yes. Till the media really started banging the stories around. Thats the bad part. It should never of been, nor ever tolerated by the SEE. They knew what was whispered, some even I suspect had participated and what was going on. 

Compare it to big business, it is big business. It is probably the most profitable business in the world and when the donations and profits started to dwindle, something happened.  You see the “ Follow the money answer" to most questions is prevalent, everywhere. It never rose high because those in charge may of condoned or performed the same acts themselves.

The Pope Benedict XVI refused to defrock an American priest who confessed to molesting numerous children and even served prison time for it, simply because the cleric wouldn't agree to the discipline. The case provides the latest evidence of how changes in church law under Pope John Paul II frustrated and hamstrung U.S. bishops struggling with an abuse crisis that would eventually explode.

Documents obtained by The Associated Press from court filings in the case of the late Rev. Alvin Campbell of Illinois show Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, following church law at the time, turned down a bishop’s plea to remove the priest for no other reason than the abuser's refusal to go along with it.   

"The petition in question cannot be admitted in as much as it lacks the request of Father Campbell himself," Ratzinger wrote in a July 3, 1989, letter to Bishop Daniel Ryan of the Diocese of Springfield, Ill. The paperwork denial excuse.

With the church still recovering from a notable (number) departure of priests in the 1970s to marry, John Paul made it tougher to leave the priesthood after assuming the papacy in 1978, saying their vocation was a lifelong one. A consequence of that policy was that, as the priest sex abuse scandal arose in the US, Bishops were no longer able to sidestep the lengthy church trial necessary for laicization.

Obviously many who had the balls di just that, they walked away....

The Holy See is the episcopal ( not to be confused with Episcopalians) jurisdiction of the Catholic Church in Rome, led by the Pope.  It forms the central government of the Church. 

As such, legally diplomatically, and in international law as a sovereign entity, the Holy See acts and speaks for the whole Catholic Church. It is not the pure divine leadership of christians, as its purpose, its run like a business.

So lets once again, call it what it is, in financial terms, a profitable business. Thus, where do we put this blame for the damages done by their salesmen and regional manager representatives.  Lets put the blame on the CEO, you can’t blame the manufacturer, thats God. 

As my attorney would say, go for the money.  If the Church has all this power and control and globally is the recipient of many claims from many countries then lets get to the source.  It all comes down from the top.  The CEO, his General Sales Managers and his staff.

That old,  “A few bad apples ruin the bunch is a dose of well...bullshit, in his arena there has to be no bad apples”.  

The SEE controlled the Foundling Fathers worthless lives, hid them, swept it under the expensive carpet, gave them a new sales territory, worse, a new base to draw from, and in some cases outright lied.  There was coverup from the Vatican to the streets of Boston and many other US and International cities.

But the SEE has had other times of tribulation and a few suffered, more than a few...


Jan Hus (1369 – 6 July 1415)
Often referred to in English as John Hus or John Huss, was a Czech priest, philosopher, reformer, and master at Charles University in Prague. Hus is considered the first Church reformer, as he lived before Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli.

He was burned at the stake for heresy against the doctrines of the Catholic Church, including those on ecclesiology, the Eucharist, and other theological topics. Hus was a key predecessor to the Protestant movement of the sixteenth century, and his teachings had a strong influence on the states of Europe, most immediately in the approval of a reformist Bohemian religious denomination, and, more than a century later, on Martin Luther.

Girolamo Savonarola, 1452-1498
The Italian religious and political reformer, entered the Dominican order at Bologna. In a convent at Brescia his zeal won attention, and in 1489 he was recalled to Florence. His second appearance in the pulpit of San Marco -- on the sinfulness and apostasy of the time -- was a great popular triumph, and by some he was hailed as an inspired prophet.

To the adherents of the Medici therefore, Savonarola early became an object of suspicion but till the death of Lorenzo in 1492, his relations with the Church were at least not antagonistic and when, in 1493, a reform of the Dominican order in Tuscany was proposed under his auspices, it was approved by the pope, and Savonarola was named the first vicar-general but now his preaching began to point plainly to a political revolution as the divinely-ordained means for the regeneration of religion and morality.

His gift of prophecy led to his being cited in 1495 to answer a charge of heresy at Rome and on his failing to appear he was forbidden to preach. In 1497 came a sentence of excommunication from Rome;  He was brought to trial for falsely claiming to have seen visions, and uttered prophecies, for religious error, and for sedition. 

Under torture he made avowals, which he afterwards withdrew. He was declared guilty, the sentence confirmed by Rome. On May 23, 1498, this extraordinary man and two Dominican disciples were hanged and burned, still professing their adherence to the Church.

Galileo Galilei  15 Feb.1564 - 8 Jan.1642
Was an Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher who played a major role in the Scientific Revolution. His achievements include improvements to the telescope, incredible astronomical observations and support for Copernican’s theory.  That the sun is the center of the Universe and not the earth.  Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy, modern physics", and "the Father of Modern Science".

His contributions include the confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter and the observation and analysis of sunspots. Galileo also worked in applied science and technology, inventing an improved military compass and other instruments.

Galileo's championing of heliocentrism ( another form of Copernicans theory) was controversial within his lifetime, The matter was investigated by the Roman Inquisition in 1615, and they concluded that it could be supported as only a possibility, not an established fact.

Galileo later defended his views in Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, which appeared to attack Pope Urban VIII and thus alienated him and the Jesuits, who had both supported Galileo up until this point. He was tried by the Inquisition, found "vehemently suspect of heresy", forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest

It was while Galileo was under house arrest that he wrote one of his finest works, Two New Sciences, in which he summarized the work he had done some forty years earlier, on the two sciences now called kinematics and strength of materials.


Michael Servetus  29 Sept 1509 or 1511 – 27 Oct 1553
Was a Spanish theologian, physician, cartographer, and Renaissance humanist. He was the first European to correctly describe the function of pulmonary circulation. He was a polymath versed in many sciences: mathematics, astronomy and meteorology, geography, human anatomy, medicine and pharmacology, as well as jurisprudence, translation, poetry and the scholarly study of the Bible in its original languages.

He is renowned in the history of several of these fields, particularly medicine and theology. He participated in the Protestant Reformation, and later developed a non-Trinitarian Christology. Condemned by Catholics and Protestants alike, he was arrested in Geneva and burnt at the stake as a heretic by order of the Protestant Geneva governing council.

Calvin believed Servetus deserving of death on account of what he termed as his "execrable blasphemies". Calvin expressed these sentiments in a letter to Farel, written about a week after Servetus’ arrest, in which he also mentioned an exchange with Servetus. Calvin wrote:

...after Servetus had been recognized, I thought he should be detained. My friend Nicolas summoned him on a capital charge, offering himself as a security according to the lex talionis. On the following day he adduced against him forty written charges. He at first sought to evade them. Accordingly we were summoned. 

He impudently reviled me, just as if he regarded me as obnoxious to him. I answered him as he deserved... of the man’s effrontery I will say nothing; but such was his madness that he did not hesitate to say that devils possessed divinity; yea, that many gods were in individual devils, inasmuch as a deity had been substantially communicated to those equally with wood and stone. I hope that sentence of death will at least be passed on him; but I desired that the severity of the punishment be mitigated.

As Servetus was not a citizen of Geneva, and legally could at worst be banished, the government, in an attempt to find some plausible excuse to disregard this legal reality, had consulted with other Swiss Reformed cantons (Zürich, Bern, Basel, Schaffhausen.)  They universally favored his condemnation and suppression of his doctrine, but without saying how that should be accomplished.  Martin Luther had condemned his writing in strong terms. Servetus and Philip Melanchthon had strongly hostile views of each other. 

The party called the "Libertines", who were generally opposed to anything and everything John Calvin supported, were in this case strongly in favour of the execution of Servetus at the stake (while Calvin urged that he be beheaded instead).  In fact, the council that condemned Servetus was presided over by Perrin, a Libertine who ultimately on 24 October sentenced Servetus to death by burning for denying the Trinity and infant baptism.

When Calvin requested that Servetus be executed by decapitation as a traitor rather than by fire as a heretic, Farel, in a letter of 8 September, chided him for undue lenience.  The Geneva Council refused his request. On 27 October 1553 Servetus was burned at the stake just outside Geneva with what was believed to be the last copy of his book chained to his leg. Historians record his last words as: "Jesus, Son of the Eternal God, have mercy on me.
