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.

We are grateful to these three brave men who have helped expose a predator priest and who have won some semblance of justice. We strongly suspect that Catholic officials in Santa Rosa and Dublin knew of or suspected Fr. Patrick McCabe's crimes but kept silent and endangered more children.

PA- Msgr. Lynn guilty, SNAP responds

This day—and the relief, vindication and healing it gives clergy sex abuse victims—is long overdue. The guilty verdict sends a strong and clear message that shielding and enabling predator priests is a heinous crime that threatens families, communities and children, and must be punished as such. It is also the criminal justice system's "shot across the bow," sending a clear signal to all institutions: “Protect kids, oust predators or go to jail.”
