“He went on to say that it is dangerous to probe into the past sins of others. People can sin, repent, and accept Gods forgiveness, the Pope said. The Lord both forgives and forgets. We dont have the right not to forget. “
Is this thinking why the child molesting has gone on so long within the Catholic Church.
A priest does 100 Hail Marys , asks for forgiveness, and then is sent to another parish to molest again??
Can’t wait to hear how long the Church knew about the Transvestite Priest
He had been a secretary to Egan who covered up a lot of abuse
I just watched a documentary re: Meth in America (I think it was on topdocumentaryfilms.com).
I had no idea how horrible it was. It destroys people in record time.
There was a couple with four kids and the dad talked about how he was raised in the church and he wanted he and his wife to get clean, leave that place and get back in church.
What a terrible struggle.
Many on that program called it evil, of the devil, etc..
The background re: history of meth was interesting. From a Japanese scientist then picked up by a German one. They also stated it was given to kamikazes and Nazis (I have no clue if that’s true). It also was used in asthma inhalers.
When I was stationed on the West Coast it was coming into vogue. I’m sure they use it here in the city, but you never hear about it except in the burbs for some reason. Not even among the bikers in the Village.
Thanks for that story, I knew nothing about it.
I saw his sentencing was set for June 25th... I can’t find anything on it.
What I don’t get is, how could he OWN a sex toy and drug paraphernalia shop? And to launder the drug money... he had to be using as well.
BTW, I was told by someone (who was the head of one of the centers they sent priests to for treatment, because I wanted to know why as well), that the church, especially after the summer of love and Vatican II, went to ‘psychiatrists’ and social work types that deal with these situations from the outside world for help. So of course you can guess what their recommendations were. Big mistake. That’s like going to Timothy Leary to help me get my kid off drugs back then.
There were rarely priests who were also psychiatrists.
I’m going to find out what happened re: sentencing. Will let you know.
I have to pray for him; The Lord takes oaths seriously and I wouldn’t want to be there when he stands before him.
