As long as the Pope keeps promoting church officials who keep parishioners in doubt, victims in pain, and kids at risk, there will be more child sex crimes.
We are here today supporting a brave teenager who was physically assaulted by Fr. Joe Ross and is now being emotionally assaulted by Archbishop Robert Carlson.
We're grateful that a federal grand jury indicted Fr. Sorenson on charges he possessed thousands of pornographic images of young boys. Children never deserve to be treated in such a harmful way, especially with such lifelong consequences that come with being sexually abused with child porn.
Our hearts ache for Bishop Zavala's young children, who hopefully will find healing and wholeness now that their father and the church have acknowledged them in such a public manner.
This is an unprecedented bullying effort to silence and invade the privacy of victims and their allies and protect predator priests and their corrupt supervisors. It’s an expensive, cumbersome fishing expedition that tramples on the constitutionally-guarantees of freedom of speech, association and privacy and cripples our ability to counsel and console deeply wounded men, women and teenagers who turn to us for help.
At least three Sacramento predator priests - Fr. Gerardo Beltran, Fr. Jose Luis Urbina and Fr. Francisco Javier Garcia - are believed to have fled California after sexually assaulting kids.
We are grateful that a victim of Fr. Salanitro is 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.
It's alarming that Philly Catholic officials still want to interfere in criminal investigations by insisting that their defense lawyers be involved in every single conversation or e mail between church employees and law enforcement.
Onondga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick is out of control. First, he disparages the third man who reports being abused by Bernie Fine. Then, he disparages the fourth man who reports being abused by Bernie Fine.
We don’t know precisely what Fr. Brendan Doyle has allegedly done. That’s because Jeff City’s Catholic bishop is being reckless and secretive.
