Who loves #NewYork? – #SOL makes it a safe haven for #childsexabusers

Pass Child Victim's Act in New  York

I wrote on my post (FRIDAY, MAY 8, 2015) about the difficulty getting justice for children murdered and abused by priests and nuns in New York.  High level political figures are very friendly with the catholic church. Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of  New York (known for his cover-ups of pedophile priests), and several other high-ranking bishops socialize with Andrew Cuomo, Governor of  New York and other politicians at the Executive Mansion.  Cuomo said he “looks forward to continuing to work closely with them during his administration.”  

Basically, the State of New York belongs to the catholic church.  I know, and other victims of the catholic church know, how difficult it is to get justice for the crimes committed against us in New York. There is no separation of the catholic church and the state.  What’s true in NY is repeated all over the world. 

Tzedek tzedek tirdof, justice justice you shall pursue. (The Torah)

Rabbi Ari Hart, writing in the New York Daily News (5/1/16) knows it is time to stop the child abuse in NY and he is backed by more than 100 Jewish leaders. They have one voice: to declare their support for statute of limitations (SOL) reform for child abuse victims in New York State.

Rabbi Hart says, “After decades of denial, cover-ups and darkness, the light is finally shining on the scourge of child sexual abuse. Today, we better understand the high rate of its prevalence, the lasting and far-reaching damage caused by abusers, and the extreme difficulty survivors face in coming forward and seek justice. Tragically, New York State’s regressive laws prevent many victims from getting the justice they deserve and from stopping abusers from causing more harm.”
  
Rabbi Hart, like other advocates for abuse survivors knows that people in their 40s, 50s and 60s (or even older) are only now coming to grips with what happened to them as children, and only now able to come forward. New York law fails these victims by giving a victim only five years from the time they enter adulthood to act. Rabbi Hart and his fellow Jewish leaders strive to be relentless pursuers of justice by calling on Albany to pass the Child Victim’s Act.

New York State has been ranked among the very worst, alongside Mississippi, Alabama and Michigan, for how the courts and criminal justice system treat survivors of child sex abuse.

Jewish law does not recognize the concept of a statute of limitations: If a wrong was committed, if someone has been harmed, they always have the right to seek justice. However, says Rabbi Hart, “… sometimes our religious institutions and leaders have been part of the problem. Too often, they have discouraged victims from going to the police. Too often, they have been enablers or even perpetrators of abuse.” Pope Francis and catholic leaders don’t have this morality like these courageous Jewish leaders to admit their guilt.

The victims have paid the price, now it is time for the abusers to do so.  “We must ask ourselves: to which bottom line are we accountable? Those of profits, of those of the prophets?” says Rabbi Hart.

The world has hit the limits of tolerance of the catholic church’s lies and the lies of any religion or any group that harms children. We need all religions, all people, to join together to eradicate child abuse all over the globe.

#Pope Francis to let #pro-Nazi Anti-Semitic Catholic group #SSPX back into #CatholicChurch

Pope Benedict lifts excommunication for pro-Nazi Bishop Richard Williamson of SSPX

The church still has Nazi ties.  Reporter Nicole Winfield wrote (9/16/11 Huffington Post) that Jewish groups were worried about the vatican’s relationship with a group of catholics, including a bishop Richard Williamson, who denies that Nazi gas chambers were used for mass killing and that the Holocaust ever happened. The group, the Swiss-based society of st. pius X  (SSPX) continues to believe and say that Christ's death was the fault of all Jews. Former #PopeBenedict tried for two decades, as pope and earlier as cardinal, to bring the pro-Nazi group back under the Vatican umbrella -- without having to give up all of their beliefs. In 2009 Benedict lifted Williamson’s excommunication.

SSPX had granted asylum as "an act of charity to a homeless man", to French Nazi collaborator and war criminal Paul Touvier and on his death, in 1996, said a Requiem Mass for him. On 16 October 2013, the Society offered to perform a funeral for Nazi war-criminal Erich Priebke, but the ceremony did not take place due to protests by some 500 people outside the Society's Italian district house in Albano, near Rome.

Benedict also expanded the use of the Tridentine mass – favored by Williamson. This mass includes a prayer that asks God to “lift the veil so they [Jews] may be delivered from their darkness.”  The real darkness is in the black heart of the pope and his #neo-nazi society.

This Nazi society is spreading its poison all over: they have six seminaries, three universities and over 100 primary and secondary schools around the globe. In addition to Williamson it has three other bishops, more than 589 priests in 37 countries and 220 priests in training.  It has 750 Mass centers, 163 priories, 103 religious brothers, 186 religious sisters, 7 nursing homes, 4 Carmelite convents.  Are they all training to incite another Holocaust?

SSPX is jumping for joy. Pope Francis may soon offer SSPX regular canonical status within the Church, and they still don’t have to follow the rules of the Second Vatican Council.  SSPX says, “perhaps only Pope Francis is able to take this step, given his unpredictability and improvisation” – in other words they think he is a push over.  They also said Francis’ church is, “gradually lowering its demands.”  Translated: SSPX can walk all over the church.

Under Pope Francis several moves have suggested a warming in relations between the Vatican and the SSPX.  Birds of a feather flock together.

In 2015, the Holy See sent a cardinal and three bishops to visit the seminaries of the SSPX. They were sent to become better acquainted with the society, and to discuss doctrinal and theological topics. Pope Francis announced in a September 2015 letter that during the Jubilee Year of Mercy the faithful can validly receive absolution of their sins from priests of the SSPX.  Do the faithful really want to confess to Nazis? It’s bad enough they give their hard earned money to a church that spends it on fancy houses and high paid lawyers to bail out their child rapists.

“I trust that in the near future solutions may be found to recover full communion with the priests and superiors of the Fraternity,” Pope Francis wrote. Francis says the SSPX is Catholic and he would not condemn it, and that he wishes to extend the faculties of its priests. 

So while Pope Francis “friends” the Nazis, the faithful should rise up and refuse to confess to SSPX who hate Jews, support Nazis, and want to run the Vatican their way.  Is Pope Francis losing his mind?

NY Assembly democrats won’t allow showing of #Spotlight to help Markey fight #childsexualabuse

Assemblywoman Margaret Markey plans to fight her chamber's leadership for permission to show the film "Spotlight" at the Capitol complex in May.

Assemblywoman Margaret Markey (D-Queens) fights to get Statute of Limitations laws changed but her own party hinders her.  Assembly Democratic leaders say the Oscar-winning film Spotlight can’t be shown on government property.  Markey’s office has a permit to show the film and will continue to push for the screening to follow a May 4 roundtable on child abuse issues.

Three times in the past decade the Assembly has passed a bill sponsored by Markey that would not only make it easier for victims to sue, but would also grant a one-year window for those whose statute of limitations had expired to bring a civil lawsuit. The last time the bill cleared the Assembly was in 2008. 

But under pressure from the Catholic Church and other religious organizations, the Senate failed to take up the matter each time. Republicans, who control the Senate, don’t see that changing this year. 

The roadblock to justice for countless sex abuse victims in New York is the continued handiwork of Senate Republicans more concerned about the rights of perverts than their accusers — or too busy to even consider reforms.

Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan through his staff wouldn’t even discuss the matter this week despite repeated requests from the Daily News. “We aren’t going to discuss it until after the (state) budget is settled,” Flanagan spokesman Scott Reif said.

Deputy Majority Leader John DeFrancisco, a retired Syracuse lawyer, said the current law strikes a fair balance.  What he said sounds like a direct quote from the catholic church leadership in NY state: He said,

“I believe that there’s a purpose for a statute of limitations,” DeFrancisco said. “The further back the case is, the more difficult it is for anybody to defend themselves. Witnesses are gone. That’s why a statute of limitation is there.” That goes for both criminal and civil cases, he said.

We need more politicians like Assemblywoman Markey and no politicians like those democrats and republicans who can be bought off by the catholic church.

#Spotlight was then, Ring Around the Collar is now: #childsexualabuse in #Catholicschools worldwide


Teja Arboleda*
Dan Kiley*



The story of child sexual abuse as told in the movie Spotlight continues today, and is explored in our movie Ring Around The Collar, a documentary exposing ongoing child sexual abuse and rape by Catholic priests and clergy in Catholic schools around the world.

Tens of thousands (if not millions) of victims and survivors of all ages need to be heard and Teja Arboleda and Dan Kiley, both survivors and the producers of this film will be their voice. The documentary also includes the critical and expert analyses by renowned international experts on sexual predators and victims, such as trial lawyer Eric MacLeish (who was characterized in the movie Spotlight); internationally renowned psychiatrist and trauma specialist, Bessel van der Kolk; investigative reporter Joe Bergantino, NECIR (New England Center for Investigative Reporting); Simon Scott, International News Reporter; regional Catholic diocese public relations teams; school officials and non-governmental organizations such as Amnesty International and SNAP (Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests).

Many survivors keep silent, in fear of retaliation by the predators, school administrators, local diocese and the Catholic Church itself. Many Catholic clergy in Catholic schools, even when implicated, are moved to other communities and countries where they continue to abuse and rape children. The evidence is damning - from recent Amnesty International demands for the Vatican to open records on harboring criminals and pedophiles, to Pope Francis’ admittance to the seriousness of the issue of child rape and mental torture, and the sheer number of cases of sexual predatory practices within Catholic schools around the world.

Eric MacLeish
The documentary will cover stories in various locations including the US, Canada, Japan, England, Australia, Chile and Ireland. Funding will cover all aspects of production, from research, writing and pre-interviews, to international travel, filming, editing and distribution. The film will have an active on-line presence through which communication and connections can be made by survivors, victims and supporters. In addition, the documentary will be matched with a committed and appropriate distributor such as PBS.

Whistleblower #priests and #nuns turn in #catholicchurch sexual predators


Most church insiders who have witnessed sexual abuse have chosen not to report it. BishopAccountability.org has put the first database of church whistleblowers - priests, nuns, church employees and volunteers --  who reported colleagues to church or civil authorities and fought their superiors’ concealment of abuse. These whistleblowers listed below are remarkable exceptions to those in the church who are enablers of worldwide child sexual abuse. 

Clergy and Religious Whistleblowers

Many of the whistleblowers have experienced retaliation and grief:  defamation, job loss, career derailment, ostracization, pressure by superiors to admit to mental illness, and in at least one case, suicide, according to Bishop Accountability.   


I thank Bishop Accountability for their continued dedication to survivors and children.  The most important thing that catholic parishioners can do is to open their eyes and close their wallets.

Send a #clergysexabuse survivor to the SNAP Conference

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests

Every year survivors of sexual, psychological and physical abuse by catholic priests and nuns, by clergy of all denominations and by abusers from other organizations meet at the annual SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priest) conference.  At the conference, survivors can meet, talk, attend lectures and hear about progress in stopping the abuse and bringing justice to the survivors.

One of these survivors, Dave O’Regan, the New England SNAP Director is making a special endeavor to help raise money for survivors who need help to attend the conference.  In Dave’s words:

“I am very happy to announce today a very ambitious goal I set for myself to help raise funds for survivors of clergy sexual abuse attend the SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priest) Annual Conference in Chicago June 24-26. I am training for and have registered to run in the Worcester 5k Road Race in Worcester, MA on June 19. My daughter Maureen has teamed up with me to form Massachusetts Team SNAP. We will both be asking for funds from friends, relatives, constituents, and all our contacts to help us achieve our goal of raising $12,500.

This year I was pleased to learn that a kind and generous donor is matching donations to SNAP Scholarships up to $12,500. This means that SNAP will have $25,000 to help survivors attend. I am so appreciative and want to do my very best to help survivors in financial need here in Massachusetts and across the country attend.   

 Everyone has been so kind in the past helping me achieve this goal the last few years and this year there is a greater need with “Spotlight”, the movie. More survivors memories are being triggered and they are coming forward for the very first time and are in need of all the support we can give. The Annual Conference offers workshops, prominent speakers, validation, friendships, and a pathway to healing from the deep wounds of abuse.”

The Boston Globe’s Spotlight Investigation in 2002 caused Dave to remember and relive his abuse and suffer PTSD. He considered taking his own life. Then he found and attended a SNAP support group. He learned from other brave survivors sharing their painful stories that he was not alone and they gave him the courage to, for the first time, articulate and speak of his painful past. Dave couldn’t afford to go the SNAP Annual Conference but funding was available so he went and it was a life changing experience for him, helping him to heal and get grounded again.

Dave gives back by helping other survivors – that is what he did for me. I found Dave, and SNAP and no longer feel alone with my pain. Now I am paying forward, helping by writing this blog for survivors and those in danger of being abused.  Dave says,

“I have a deep desire to help other hurting survivors attend and experience the healing opportunity I found attending my first conference.”

Please help a survivor. You can make a tax deductible donation through this link:

Pennsylvania Revelation: #CatholicBishops and local police protect #pedophilepriests

Attorney General of Pennsylvania, #KathleenKane

For over 40 years (1940s-1980s) hundreds of Pennsylvania children were sexually abused by more than 50 Roman Catholic priests –and the shocking crimes were covered up by bishops.  Priests took advantage of these children who felt safe with them. The abusers committed their crimes in campsites, confessionals, in an orphanage and in the cathedral. Children were molested, raped and fated to become adults with lifelong psychological trauma.

The Attorney General of Pennsylvania, #KathleenKane said that the 37th Statewide Investigating Grand jury 147-page report found that former Altoona-Johnstown Diocese Bishop James Hogan and his successor Joseph Adamec protected pedophile priests. Hogan covered up allegations by transferring offending priests, including one who was sent to a boys’ school.  Adamec or his staff threatened some victims with excommunication and generally worked harder to hide or settle allegations of abuse than to discipline the priests accused.

"The diocese will not apologize or take responsibility for its dark history," the report said.

Evidence for the report came from a secret diocesan archive opened through a search warrant.  Hogan died in 2005 and Adamec cited possible self-incrimination in refusing to testify before the grand jury.

The investigation found that local law enforcement dodged investigating the abuses in the church and that the diocese actually helped select a police chief and fire chief.  Kane’s investigation was helped by the FBI’s Critical Incident Response Group and the Behavioral Analysis Unit.

Attorney Kane called the release of the report a “day of reckoning” for abusers and their enablers. The sad fact is that there were no cases filed against the attackers because the statute of limitations (two years) ran out -- making prosecution impossible.  Victims are too traumatized to testify or remember what happened to them until it is too late.  The grand jury is recommending the complete removal of statutes for future child sexual abuse criminal cases and opening a window of time allowing civil suits for past abuse, as some other states have done. Of the victims, Kane said: "Their souls were killed as children. They weren't out playing baseball; they were trying to avoid priests."

The current bishop, Mark Bartchak, recently suspended a few pedophile priests but the grand jury said it remains "concerned the purge of predators is taking too long."

Parishioners Pay for the “Menu”

American dioceses have paid nearly $4 billion since 1950 to settle claims with victims.  We know where this money came from – the pockets of parishioners who thought they were helping with God’s works.

The report found that there was a "payout chart" where victims would receive amounts of money from the church according to the crime committed – a practice found in other dioceses.  Is this a menu for the abusers? Victims fondled over their clothes were to be paid $10,000 to $25,000; fondled under their clothes or subjected to masturbation, $15,000 to $40,000; subjected to forced oral sex, $25,000 to $75,000; subjected to forced sodomy or intercourse, $50,000 to $175,000.  Can anyone put a price on a child’s life?

An $8 million settlement was awarded to 88 former students of Franciscan Brother Stephen Baker, who  abused catholic high school students from 1992 to 2001. Baker killed himself in 2013 after abuse settlements were publicized.  A molestation lawsuit against since-defrocked priest Francis Luddy tried in 1994 led to a verdict of more than $2 million in damages and an appeals court finding that Hogan's oversight of pedophile priests had been "outrageous."

How many children could have been saved from a life of misery if these bishops would have acted like the “men of God” that they pretend to be? These child predators could have been criminally prosecuted and locked away.  What the grand jury report calls, “soul murder” could have been prevented.

“These findings are both staggering and sobering,” said the grand jury report. “Over many years hundreds of children have fallen victim to child predators wrapped in the authority and integrity of an honorable faith. As wolves disguised as the shepherds themselves — these men stole the innocence of children by sexually preying upon the most innocent and vulnerable .... ”

Bishops: “took actions that further endangered children as they placed their desire to avoid public scandal over the well-being of innocent children,” the report said. “Priests were returned to ministry with full knowledge they were child predators.”

Just like cases in many other dioceses: these bishops tried to discredit the victims – in one case, trying to get the gynecological records of a survivor.  They threatened victims, tried to get lawsuits against known criminal clergy dismissed – even after the priest admitted molesting children.  There are so many cases that are known and how many are buried so deep that they haven’t yet surfaced?

In 2002, according to the grand jury,  Rev. Martin Cingle had groped the genitals of a then-15-year-old boy while sleeping next to the boy on a trip he had taken him on. Bishop Adamec met with Father Cingle, who denied remembering such an event. Adamec sent the priest for what the grand jury said was an insufficient psychological review which was inconclusive. Adamec returned the priest to ministry, where he remained until the grand jury, under threat of perjury got Cingle to admit his guilt.  It wasn’t until the Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General Dye wrote to the current Bishop Bartchak, that the bishop agreed to remove Cingle from the ministry.  What was Cingle out there doing for over a decade?

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in Dallas ruled in 2002, that any priest should be removed from ministry who committed even a single act of abuse.  All talk and worse than no action: the grand jury report said that as late as 2005, the Altoona-Johnstown diocese was hiring private investigators to look for ways to undercut the credibility of an accuser.  It was the #BostonGlobe investigations, recently dramatized in the Oscar-winning movie #Spotlight, that provoked the bishops to act like they were doing something to stop the abuse. The tide was rising and the Globe investigation led to revelations of similar cover-ups worldwide.  The tide of truth will keep rising until it washes away the agents of evil.

The grand jury is recommending the complete removal of statutes for future child sexual abuse criminal cases and opening a window of time allowing civil suits for past abuse, as some other states have done. Bishop cover up of lying, incurable pedophile priests or some similar mockery of justice has or is happening everywhere the church reaches with its tentacles into the lives of innocent children.  Who will stop it?  We will – like the victims in #Spotlight we will tell the media the truth and hope they are brave enough to reveal it to the world.

A DREAM ABOUT #POPEFRANCIS

Pope Francis’ bed: what does he dream about?

Dwayne James Mitchell is a regular commentator on this blog.  He always hits the nail on the head with his comments about the Criminal Catholic Church.  He is a true advocate for the children and adults that were and are physically, mentally and spiritually abused by nuns and priests.  I would and I know Dwayne would like to hear your voice added to this noble effort to save the children. Dwayne even dreams about Pope Francis:

                  A DREAM ABOUT #POPEFRANCIS

Last night I had a dream, (well, more like a nightmare), that I was invited to dinner with Pope Francis at the #Vatican. This dream occurred right after I read about his comment dealing with people who believe in countries having closed borders, and being #Christian at the same time!

The purpose of my “dinner with the Pope” was to interview him on current issues that are in the world news.

As I arrived at the Vatican in my vehicle, I was given a parking spot, and I was escorted by his security into a small room where I was “strip searched,” and my entire brief case along with my laptop were examined. I was a little concerned about the “strip search,” after all, this is the Vatican, and they are known for their issues with the Altar Boys, but since I did not see any Priests in the area, I figured that I was “ok,” although one of the security guards did look at me very strangely, but maybe that was just my paranoid imagination.

From the security office, I was escorted to an elevator, and we traveled to the Pope’s private residence. As we were traveling, the thought crossed my mind that if “security for a country at its borders was not such a big issue,” why was there so much security for the Pope at the Vatican? What is he and his staff afraid of from the world? After all, he is a man of God, so shouldn’t he be willing to trust his fellow human beings without concern?

When we arrived at the residence area, I was asked to wait in a little foyer. In a few minutes I was then ushered into the dining room where the Pope was already seated at the table. As I approached the table, Pope Francis stood up, and we were introduced. I asked the Pope that since this was an informal meeting, if it would be “ok” if I could address him as “Francis,” and he could then address me as Dwayne. He agreed, and as the dinner was being served we had the following conversation.

DWAYNE:
I would like to thank you for extending this invitation to dinner with you, and to be able to discuss the issues of the day from the point of view of the #CatholicChurch.

FRANCIS:
It is my pleasure to open up the inner workings of the Catholic Church. I am seeking more transparency in both the Catholic Church and the Vatican.

DWAYNE:
In the last ten, (10), years the Catholic Church has been hit with a big scandal with regards to child abuse from both the #Priests and #Nuns, (in the schools, churches and institutions), and the position of the Vatican with regards to sealing the files of these offending clergy from prosecution by civil authorities. How do you defend this position that the Catholic Church has taken on this issue?

FRANCIS:
As representatives of God, we are above the Civil Law. We only come under Church Law, and since we are also a country, I consider all of my employees to be agents of the Vatican, and as such, they have “diplomatic immunity!” So, you might say that they are untouchable.

Besides, the people that they “might have abused” are of no consequence. They are just the “little people,” and they are of no importance. They reproduce like rabbits, and when one goes, there will be another to replace them. What is more important is that I keep my staff happy so that we can do the job of getting everyone under the umbrella of the Catholic Church. We are running a business, just like General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. Our product is “religion,” coated with a dose of “smoke and mirrors!”  We have found that the more “smoke and mirrors” in our religious ceremonies the better the little people like the presentation. It is all about the bottom line.

DWAYNE:
What do you say to the people who have been abused by the Catholic Clergy when they were children?

FRANCIS:
I would simply tell them to “get over it!” It was just a “role in the hay,” so move on with your life. Since you are just a member of the Catholic Church, and not a Priest and Nun, you are of no real importance. You will never get the justice that you are seeking, because we are going to delay the legal process until most of you are dead and buried, and then there will be no one to testify to what really happened! The “Faithful” need to understand that they are in the church to be used and abused by the Clergy for their pleasure. In addition, the “Faithful” are there to give their financial support on demand to the Clergy whenever necessary without question. The role of the “Faithful” is to serve the clergy as appropriate and never question church authority, and to be submissive 24 / 7 / 365. Independent thinking is not accepted behavior and will not be tolerated in the Catholic Church. Only “group think” will be accepted as directed by the Catholic Church.

DWAYNE:
Why are you in favor of open borders?

FRANCIS :
Let’s be very practical about this issue. My business (church), in the United States is in “BIG TROUBLE!” Since the #AltarBoy Issue, people have been leaving the Catholic Church, and they have taken their money with them, and those that are left are starting to question the authenticity of the Catholic Church, and the beliefs of the Catholic Church. Would you believe that some of the older members are starting to question the concept of “transubstantiation?” We thought that we had that issue firmly implanted into the brains of these gullible individuals, but I guess they need to go to the re-education Catholic Camps formally known as Catholic Schools. We need new blood in the Catholic Church, and the best place to get that new blood is across the border from Mexico. We can get these people to believe anything, so we need them in the United States to fill up our churches. The American people have seen through our “smoke and mirror act,” and we can no longer con them into giving us money to continue our life style. We have bills to pay. There are court costs, and hush money, and those funds have to come from the “Faithful.”

At the end of our dinner, I thanked the Pope for his candor and I left the Vatican. Once I woke up from my dream, I felt enlightened by the experience because I now understand the operation and motivation of the Catholic Church!

We can wake up from our dreams and make the world a safer place for children so that they will not be abused like me and like Dwayne and like so many of you.
