VA - High profile ‘exorcist’ priest is sued in VA for abuse
Fr. Thomas Euteneuer is a manipulative, sick charlatan. He has sexually violated other devout, vulnerable Catholic women. Like Fr. Daniel McGuire and Fr. John Corapi, Fr. Euteneuer travels widely and trades on his charm and charisma to exploit unsuspecting parishioners who are often in awe of his high profile and impressive connections.
Catholic officials rarely supervise or monitor these kinds of predators, making them particularly dangerous.
We are grateful that more victims of Fr. Euteneur are stepping forward. When victims stay silent, nothing changes. But when victims find the courage to take action, there's at least a chance for prevention, healing and justice.
If you were hurt by a priest, suffering in shame, isolation and self-blame won't fix it. Only by stepping forward, speaking up and getting help can you both recover personally and help others. Now is the time to do it.
Let’s hope that every person who saw, suspected or suffered clergy sex crimes and cover ups by Fr. Euteneuer will find the courage and strength to speak up, call police, expose wrongdoing, protect kids and start healing.
