“LET US PREY” (RAPE, SODOMY AND PEDOPHILIA IN THE CATHOLIC HIERARCHY)


Recently, a storm has been brewing in Pennsylvania and it involves members of the Catholic Church.  But the focus wasn’t on the average Catholic in the pew.  The focus was on a Pennsylvania grand jury report, in “the most exhaustive investigation of the church taken on by a state,” accusing over 300 priests of sexual misconduct, abusing more than 1000 children. 

Not only were there priests involved, but there were monsignors, bishops, archbishops, and even cardinals, either directly involved in sexual misconduct themselves, or involved in a deliberate cover-up of the ordeal.

According to one website:

“Instead of contacting law enforcement, senior church officials would regularly shuffle offending priests from parish to parish, where they would continue to have contact with minors.”


According to this same source, less than a week after the Pennsylvania grand jury report came out, Pope Francis formally apologized for the church’s mishandling of the sex scandal.  Yeah, that’s way too little, way too late.  Not impressive at all.  We don’t think that anyone that high up could be unaware of the things that are going on in his own church.  Pope Francis, as well as the previous popes, should have started weeding out these perverts long ago.  But now, hundreds and hundreds of victims have already been damaged. 

Another source states:

“It is time to face the horrible truth: The Catholic church is a pedophile ring.”

“… the grand jury report includes, but is by no means limited to, the case of a ring of pedophile priests in Pittsburgh, who raped their male victims, took pornographic pictures of them and marked them by giving them gold crosses to wear so that they could be easily recognized by other abusers.”

Concerning the Catholic Church’s cover-up of these crimes, this same source said:
 
“These strategies used to subvert stories of abuse were so common that the FBI reviewed a significant portion of the evidence collected and received by the grand jury and found a series of practices engaged in by church leaders to conceal the truth.  For instance, church authorities who documented the cases for internal use never used the word ‘rape,’ only ‘inappropriate contact.’  Investigations were conducted by other clergy members, rather than trained personnel.  Church-run health centers, not lay psychiatric facilities, were used to examine priests accused of pedophilia.  Housing and funds were provided for priests, even when it was known they were raping children.  Priests were moved from the area only if their communities found out, to other communities where the abusers and abuses were not known.  Most importantly, the hierarchy was instructed to not inform law enforcement about abuses reported by parishoners, but to consider any such case an ‘internal personnel matter.’”

And finally:

“What the now-multiple Pennsylvania grand jury reports show clearly is that the Roman Catholic church has treated the protection of its pedophiles, rapists and sexual abusers as their highest priority.”


One source sums it up this way:

“Mitchell Garabedian, who represented many of the Boston victims… added that the report, ‘lays out the standard blueprint of dishonesty, immorality, criminality and cover-up of the Catholic Church which has been previously revealed in Boston and archdioceses and dioceses worldwide.’”


Much more has been revealed through many media sources on this investigation, but sadly, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Ok, so since there are so many problems with sexual perversion in the Catholic Church, could there possibly be something wrong with the Catholic system, itself?  Is there a problem with the structure of the hierarchy, or maybe with the environment that is produced therein?

According to the following Catholic source, there is indeed a problem with the environment in which priests are placed:

“Even if a seminarian’s homosexuality isn’t ‘deep-seated,’ it will likely become deep-seated when he is placed in an all-male environment for five to eight years, and sleeping in bedrooms with men.  Putting homosexuals in an all-male environment is what’s called ‘an occasion of sin,’ that is, it leads to deep-seated temptations.  You might as well put heterosexual men in the convent or a nunnery for five to eight years, and let them sleep in bedrooms with girls and women, and see how long they remain chaste.” 


A friend once asked me if I had ever seen a masculine looking priest.  Neither of us could honestly answer yes to that question, even though we both live in a heavily Catholic area.  We’re not saying that all priests everywhere are feminine looking, but it appears that at least the great majority are!  

But why is that?  Do they purposely ordain gay or feminine priests in the Catholic Church?  This is what one source revealed:

“According to a news story in The New York Times (Sept. 15, 2005), Fr. Thomas Reese, S.J., the former Editor-in-Chief of America, said that ‘with the shortage of priests, the church can hardly afford to dismiss gay seminarians.’”


So, it seems that they don’t really have a problem ordaining gay men into the Catholic priesthood, in spite of the fact that homosexuality is a sin (Genesis 19:1-29; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:24-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; 1 Timothy 1:9-10; Jude 7).  So with the type of men they are recruiting, and with the environment that these men are subjected to, is it any wonder that all these things are now surfacing?

  1. The answer is very simple. But since the Bible only crowd gets all its truth from the mainstream media, you won't believe me.

    It boils down to this. Faith in God. God protects His Church. Even from His own Bishops and Priests.

    First, I want you to review this in the Bible:

    Matthew 10:36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

    Throughout the history of the Catholic Church, we've had our share of foes in our own household. Arius, Macedonius, Nestor, and others, were Bishops of the Catholic Church. Yet they invented heresies which were condemned by the Catholic Church.

    A few years ago, it was rumored that the liberal Bishops in the Church were going to announce that the Church no longer believed in marriage between a man and a woman. In other words, they were going to normalize same sex marriage. They even held a summit in the US. They invited liberal Bishops from all over the world. And it looked as though they would succeed. When, all of a sudden, the Holy Spirit mobilized His orthodox Bishops. They invaded the summit and forestalled any such nonesense.

    The last thing you need to worry about, is the Church. God is protecting His Body. What you need to worry about is getting untangled from the mess of lies and heresies which you have swallowed hook, line and sinker. Come back to God's Church.

  2. Anonymous,

    You seem to be far more concerned about the Catholic Church saving face than you are about the hundreds and hundreds of INNOCENT VICTIMS she has produced, both recent and past, whose lives will never be the same. Also, I don’t see any remorse from you concerning the Church’s wicked and diabolical documented attempts to keep it all hidden, thus allowing the sexual perversion to continue. It is people like you, who defend the Catholic Church at all costs, who are part of the problem, rather than the solution. The “tangled mess” we see here is not ours, but yours.

    I do agree, though, that we don’t have to worry about the one true church - but the Catholic Church is certainly NOT that church.

    2. Mr. Cowardly Anonymous has got to be a rather sick and twisted individual in order to come up this with kind of snarky reply.

  3. Hey Russ,

    Following are a few excerpts from a Roman Catholic publication titled Familiar Explanation of Christian Doctrine, by Michael Müller:

    Q. Are the doctrines of the Catholic Church then entirely independent of Scripture?

    A. They are; because she taught her doctrines, and they were believed by the early Christians before the New Testament was written—centuries, indeed, before the Bible was collected into its present form; and she would have done so, in precisely the same manner, had they never been written.

    Elsewhere in this question and answer session:

    Q. Whose duty is it to teach the Christian doctrine?

    A. This is the duty of the pastors of the Catholic Church.

    The next excerpt undoubtedly proves that the Church of Rome worships Mary

    Q. Do Protestants love the Mother of God and the Saints?

    A. They do not, or they would not ridicule and blaspheme the Mother of God and the Saints.

    Messed up stuff, huh?

  4. Hey Jesse,

    Concerning the first question, they are trying to present this as the old “which came first, the Bible or the church” dilemma. But this is deceptive. They’ll say that the church came first, meaning it came before the COMPLETED Bible. But this subtle deception ignores the fact that the whole Old Testament was there before the church was ever born. To say that the church is / was “entirely independent” of Scripture is a lie. They were indeed dependent on the doctrines of the O.T. Scriptures.

    And when I say “church,” I am referring to all believers, worldwide, not the organization / institution called the Catholic Church (which is a false church).

    Concerning the last question about Mary, they wrongly assume that Protestants ridicule or blaspheme the BIBLICAL Mary, but this is simply not true at all. We only have a problem with the “Catholic” Mary.

  5. Oh, I know what this question and answer section is saying. But I was wondering whether you found these quotes to be disgusting. The last one especially in my opinion is idolatrous. Also, it seems that the Church of Rome puts itself in the position of God when claiming to have assembled the canon in the fourth century, which is pompous idolatry.

  6. Jesse,

    Yeah, these questions and their "answers" are pretty disturbing, and heretical.
