    Post Today in Catholicism: An Ongoing Thread

    According to the reports, priests were photographed fondling and kissing trainee priests and pornographic images were found on the seminary computers. The school director and his deputy have resigned.

    It also reported that a police investigation had uncovered as many as 40,000 images and videos - some allegedly including child pornography - on computers at the seminary.

    Managua, Nicaragua-AP -- A Costa Rican priest fleeing sexual molestation charges apparently has entered Nicaragua and is being sought.

    National Police spokeswoman Miriam Torres says the Reverend Enrique Vasquez is being sought on an Interpol warrant on behalf of Costa Rican officials.

    The Dallas Morning News profiled Vasquez in June as part of a series following a yearlong investigation of runaway Roman Catholic priests.

    Vasquez fled Costa Rica after a criminal complaint was filed by the mother of a boy he allegedly molested.

    Catholic priests in weekly abuse claims

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/st...259687,00.html

    LONDON (Reuters) - An average of one Roman Catholic priest every week is accused of sexual abuse in England and Wales last year but none has been prosecuted and all but two are still in their jobs, a report has said.

    A further 10 allegations were made of physical, emotional or other abuse by priests, volunteers and employees of the church, bringing total complaints for the year to 62, according to the report by the Catholic Office for the Protection of Children

    There were also 51 reports of "inappropriate behaviour" towards children which were dealt with internally by the church after consultation with police and social services.

    http://news.scotsman.com/latest.cfm?id=3193801

    Between 1995 and 1999, 21 of the 5,600 Catholic priests in England and Wales were convicted of offences against children.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main...13/ixhome.html

    The Roman Catholic Church admitted yesterday that 62 allegations of child abuse were made against its clergy and workers last year.

    The disclosure came from the unit set up to combat paedophile activity among Catholic priests in England and Wales after a series of scandals shook the Church.

    The 62 complaints - mostly concerning alleged sexual abuse - were referred to the police after they were made about priests, members of religious orders, employees and volunteers.

    In addition, 51 reports of "inappropriate behaviour" towards children were dealt with internally by the Church after consultation with police and social services.

    Fugitive Catholic brother in United States faces charges but not extradition

    http://canadaeast.com/apps/pbcs.dll/...3/CPA/55928029

    ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) - A Roman Catholic brother living in the United States who faces child sex charges in Newfoundland will be arrested immediately should he ever return to Canada.

    But Canadian prosecutors are not seeking the extradition of Gerald Chumik, who has been identified by a U.S. newspaper as one of 30 fugitive priests, brothers and other religious workers living in the U.S. facing sex abuse accusations in other countries.

    Chumik, who lives in a Catholic religious complex overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara, Calif., was charged in 1990 with two child sex offences dating back to the 1970s.

    A lawsuit filed against the Catholic church in South Dakota alleges clergy abused hundreds of students at Native American boarding schools.

    The students say they were beaten, even tortured by priests and nuns who ran the schools.

    The allegations of abuse span decades, from the 1930s until about 1975.

    The lawsuit filed today involves the St. Paul school on the Yankton Sioux Reservation and the St. Francis School on the Rosebud Reservation.

    Group calls for nuns to address sex abuse

    http://www.newsday.com/news/local/wi...-regional-wire

    SILVER SPRING, Md. -- Religious orders of nuns need to do more to root out sexual abuse by their members, help victims and set up safeguards to prevent future sexual misconduct, according to an advocacy group for victims of clergy abuse.

    Members of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, delivered a letter Tuesday to a national nun organization calling for more attention on abuse by women in the Roman Catholic Church. Most of the recent abuse scandals have focused on male clergy members.

    Abuse victims say church offer to pay for therapy has strings

    http://www.centredaily.com/mld/centr...cs/9145210.htm

    PHILADELPHIA - Almost a decade after he was allegedly sexually abused by a priest at his Roman Catholic high school, Arthur Baselice hoped he was on the way to recovery when church officials sought him out, apologized, and offered to pay for him to see a therapist.

    But within months, Baselice said he began to see strings attached to the offer.

    The Archdiocese of Philadelphia asked him to select his therapist from a list approved by the church. He was told to sign a waiver authorizing his caregivers to discuss his progress with a church administrator. Finally, Baselice said he was pressured to settle all legal claims against the church for $50,000.

    Instead of signing, Baselice sued, claiming that the counseling offer was a thinly veiled attempt to buy his silence.

    Catholic Priest Accused of Swindling Elderly Parishioner

    http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/news/WAB...iestheist.html

    (Upper East Side-WABC, July 13, 2004) — A Manhattan priest is facing a major lawsuit today. He is accused of using his spiritual influence to swindle an elderly parishioner out of nearly half a million dollars.

    Eighty-eight year old Rose Pale was a devoted parishioner. She attended mass every day. The lawsuit says the monsignor at Saint John The Martyr Church on the Upper East Side betrayed her trust.

    The lawsuit says that Monsignor John Wolsey had Pale sign over $495,000 dollars in cash and stocks over three years. He also advised her on her stock portfolio, convincing her to drop her broker of 20 years and use his brokerage firm. All the while, he allegedly told Pale not to tell family and friends.

    The suit alleges Wolsey received $100,000 dollars for a Jersey Shore condo. It also says that he took church donations and used them for personal use.

    Priest orgy scandal hits Catholic church

    http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/worl.../14/2003178944

    The powerful Austrian Catholic church was plunged into its second big sex scandal in a decade on Monday when a seminary run by arch-conservatives was alleged to be the site of orgies among young priests and their teachers.

    The seminary in St Polten, west of Vienna, comes under the authority of the conservative Bishop Kurt Krenn.

    The Vienna news magazine Profil has published pictures of priests and students engaged in sexual acts, prompting an uproar, emergency meetings of the church leadership, and calls for Bishop Krenn's resignation.

    Victims' group wants friar accused of abuse out of church housing

    http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercu...la/9146618.htm

    Los Angeles-AP -- Church abuse survivors called on Cardinal Roger Mahony today to remove from the Santa Barbara Mission in California an elderly friar who is accused of molesting a teen in Canada.

    Members of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests demanded Franciscan friar Gerald Chumik, who is 69, be sent back to his native Canada to face charges of enticing a teenage boy to perform oral sex.

    The group alleged the Chumik case is an example of a larger church policy of secrecy and foot-dragging in response to allegations of clergy abuse.

    Priest Faces Sex Charge in Luzerne County

    http://www.wnep.com/Global/story.asp...2&nav=5ka4OjUF

    A Roman Catholic priest in Luzerne County is accused of propositioning a young man for a sex act.

    Police said it happened early last month in Hazleton. They said Reverend Samuel Perrins, 47, a priest at Most Precious Blood Church in Hazleton, approached a young man on Mine Street and offered money for oral sex. The man declined and, according to investigators, Reverend Perrins made a second proposition. Again the man declined and then called police. Perrins was later arrested.

    The priest was removed from his position at the church after diocesan leaders learned of the arrest.

    VIENNA, Austria (AP) - An official with the Archdiocese of Vienna urged the Vatican on Wednesday to oust a Roman Catholic bishop in charge of a seminary where candidates for the priesthood hoarded child pornography and photos of themselves kissing and fondling each other.

    The cleric, Bishop Kurt Krenn, dismissed the photos as part of a ``schoolboy prank'' and accused critics of exaggerating the case - the worst church scandal in Austria since allegations of pedophilia brought down a cardinal nearly a decade ago.

    Police examined hard drives on computers seized at the seminary in St. Poelten, 50 miles west of Vienna, as part of a child pornography investigation.

    Officials said the discs contained some 40,000 photographs and numerous videos, including child pornography and photos of young seminarians kissing and fondling each other and their older instructors and engaging in sex games.

    A Catholic priest has stood aside from his position as principal of a Port Pirie Catholic school in South Australia because of an allegation of abuse made against him.

    Catholic Education South Australia says it was made aware of the allegation against Father Michael Aulsebrook two weeks ago.

    It says Fr Aulsebrook stood aside as principal of Saint Mark's College immediately.

    Ex-nun convicted in molestation of child

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- A former nun was convicted Wednesday of molesting a 10-year-old fifth-grader at a Catholic school 35 years ago.

    Eileen M. Rhoads, 65, entered an Alford plea to taking indecent liberties with a child and enticement of a child. Under the plea, a defendant acknowledges there is enough evidence for a conviction without admitting wrongdoing.

    Rhoads faces up to 10 years in prison when she is sentenced Sept. 22. She will remain free on bail until then.

    The crimes took place during the 1969-1970 school year at St. Gregory the Great Catholic School. Court documents show Rhoads took part in illicit behavior with at least three male students and a female student, or encouraged the children to engage in illicit behavior with each other.

    That is all for July 14th, 2004.

    The Problem is celibacy and the fact they don't say no to gays joining the Priesthood. Maybe now with all the Parishs filing for bankruptcy the Church will realize the importance of not letting homos in the priesthood as well as changing their Canon Law when it comes to Celibacy.
    Those Priests should all be locked up for good if not given a lethal injection.

    The problem isn't celibacy.
    However you are correct that homosexual infiltration is a major problem (that an Freemasons, Communists, and other Anti-Catholics).

    I spoke with a girl who is a Traditional Catholic. Her boyfriend had been in a seminary training to be a priest, but himself and the others heterosexual novices found their life made impossible by the homosexuals who were also in control of the college.

    Again, this has all been planned for over a century (re: The Alta Vendita document) in order to bring Christendom to it's knees (pardon the pun )

    It's good news for people with an irrational hatred of the Church in order to jump on the bandwagon and start calling for an end to Christianity.
    Although I have never seen anyone calling for an end to the evil Scout movement or Health Service when umpteen scout leaders or doctors have been accused of abusing those in their charge.

    What we need to do is to have a clear out of the Church Hierarchy, remove all the subversives and sodomites, and bring them to justice.

    Once again, I appeal for an Inquisition, which is long overdue

    Celibacy is a basic principle of Catholicism and has to be maintained.
    The problem is that nowadays people are spoiled, unethical and don't know anything about sacrifice. That's not a problem of the Catholic Church, but a problem of the 21st century in general.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    I think the problem is Christianity itself.

    Placing all your worship in a masochistic young man and his jealous father is a recipe for Gayness.

    The few Catholics I have spoke to all exude a homosexualised sanctimoniousness.

    Celibacy is a rather recent phenomenon. But I don't think the problem is Celibacy. The Priesthood has always been an attractive "vocation" for Homosexuals and Child Molestors because of the position of trust the Priest has.

    You agree with me then.
    I was reminded of a Catholic student I knew who was thinking of going into the priest hood and he was a RAMPANT gay!

    And when he spoke of Jesus [in that very Catholic way] it had the same odour of homosexuality.

    I think the chap ended up going into "gay-rights" instead.

    Don't you have such Gay Catholic Jesus freaks in Germany too?
