Damned Catholics
RE: Damned Catholics
Different 'pope' but the same old bullshit from these pious fucks.


Quote:Priest sues diocese, claiming it punished him for reporting sex abuse

A former priest at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church on Wednesday sued the Diocese of Palm Beach, claiming it punished him for exposing a pedophile priest rather than covering it up as they wanted.
The lawsuit, filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, accuses the diocese and Bishop Gerald Barbarito of defaming the Rev. John Gallagher. The 49-year-old priest pointed to a statement posted last year on the diocesan website that said Gallagher was “blatantly lying” and “in need of professional assistance” for claiming church leaders urged him not to tell police a visiting priest in January 2015 had shown pornographic pictures to a 14-year-old youth at the suburban West Palm Beach church.
“Today is a sad day,” said Gallagher, who was wearing a clerical collar at a morning press conference. “Thirty years of my life has been destroyed by the Roman church.”
His attorney, Ted Babbitt, said his treatment is especially heinous because the Catholic Church under the leadership of Pope Francis has pledged to vigorously root out priests accused of sex offenses.

Not heinous, man.  Really just par for the course.

might save data storage space here at  AF if in future we only have threads when the catholic church does the RIGHT thing

Additionally, sounds like another missed opportunity for a RICO prosecution.
If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.

What fun is that?

Priest tells anti-Trump protesters to commit suicide

The pastor of a largely immigrant Catholic church in Queens has a suggestion for his anti-Trump parishioners: Go take a flying leap off the nearest building.

“Show your hate for Trump. Do it for social justice. #JumpAgainstTrump,”

The bottom line is..the Church is protecting the bottom line. They have shown they will do anything to prevent exposure that leads to them having to fork over millions upon millions of dollars in settlements in abuse cases.

The state is not nearly hard enough on the church and it upsets me a great deal. The Catholic Church isn't just like any local independent church. Each parish, each diocese is a tentacle of the Vatican, a sovereign state. They get their marching orders from this sovereign state and enforce them in every country they reside in, technically speaking in the eyes of the Church the Pope is ultimately in charge of all of the properties owned by various parishes and dioceses and has immediate authority over every priest and bishop in the Church. I think the Vatican ought to be held to account in many of these cases where rules laid down by the Vatican have resulted in abuse.

Pious pigs.
