Commence morally relative, outward finger pointing in place of serious introspection and commitment to rid the priesthood of this problem....
I bet the word “homosexual” is never used in this article
This can’t be true.
A FReeper recently told me that the church had eliminated all cases of abuse and that abuse now only occurs in public schools.
Buuut.... if we just let “gays” marry, they wouldn’t do things like this. /sarc
Vendomes version of a just and proper punishment:
I would chain his hands and legs, then pull him up four flights of metal fire escape stairs, feet first.
Then I would kicked him in the family jewels just enough to cause a stomach ache every 15 minutes for 8 hours.
After that I would push him out a window letting him fall four stories into a pile of razor wire 5 rolls high and 5 rolls wide.
He could lay in the pile of razor wire for two days in the desert sun and then I would release a flock of crows and 1 gallon of scarabs right next to him.
Your mileage may vary...
Another pervert masquerading as a priest has been outed and the Church dealt quickly and decisively with it as soon as it was made known. Why don't we equally decry the lack of parental oversight in these cases? Surely, there is some culpability there too.
Although there is still much room for improvement, leaving children in the presence and care of a priest is statistically the safest place they can be.
Peace be with you.
Brave boy and good, strong mom! Another one bites the dust.
Elevating a sinful human to an alter Christus put the RC’s in this dreadful position.
So sad for the children who’s parents have subjected their children to this (throughout the ages) to this man made theology. :(
From the Archdiocese of St Paul and Minneapolis:
“Statement Regarding Curtis Wehmeyer
Friday, September 21, 2012
On June 20, after being informed of Curtis Wehmeyers possible misconduct with a minor, the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis immediately reported the allegations to the St. Paul police, and an investigation was begun.
On June 21, the archdiocese immediately removed Wehmeyer from his ministerial duties, and since that date, he has not practiced any ministry in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. The archdiocese cooperated fully with the ensuing police investigation, and learned only today that Wehmeyer had been formally charged.
The archdiocese deeply regrets the pain caused by clergy misconduct or by others within the Church, and is offering its support and assistance to all concerned.
Wehymeyer was ordained a priest in 2001, and served as associate priest at St. Joseph parish in West St. Paul between 2001 and 2006. From 2006 to 2009, he served at Blessed Sacrament Parish in St. Paul, a parish which merged with St. Thomas the Apostle on July 1, 2009.
Anyone having knowledge of misconduct within a parish should call the proper authorities and is encouraged to notify the archdiocese at 651-291-4497.”
