Los Angeles Times (NOT Boston Globe) had first investigative journalists team reporting on clergy sexual abuse since 1985. Against mighty Jesuits & LA archdiocese – Cardinal Law was a cakewalk!

Updated October 13, 2015

The movie Spotlight covers the five months leading to and culminating on the single day of January 6, 2002, when the Boston Globe published its first story on clergy abuse -- and then it list all the dioceses that had clergy abuse as its ending --- suggesting Boston Globe initiated exclusively the reporting on clergy sexual abuse that spread across the USA.  But Los Angeles Times - since 1985 - and other reporters from the Santa Barbara Independent, etc., the priest Tom Doyle in 1985 who wrote the initial complete report on clergy sexual abuse on minors, and Jason Berry who won journalistic awards - 1986 & 1993 - for his reportage on clergy sexual abuse -- are the true pioneers  in the journalistic coverage of clergy sexual abuse.  Therefore, the claim of the movie Spotlight -- on behalf of Boston Globe -- that it was the FIRST investigative team of reporters (akin to the two initial journalists in Nixon's Watergate in the movie All the President's Men ) is outrageously erroneous and false. (No surprise there, Hollywood and the Vatican are twin cities that "lie for a living"!)

 The Los Angeles Times (and other newspapers) had to deal with the mighty Jesuits and the Los Angeles Archdiocese, and compared to them, Cardinal Bernard Law was a cakewalk for the Boston Globe.  Hence, the suspense and drama in the movie Spotlight about the powerful Roman Catholic Cardinal Law is a hoax because he was really a wimp who kept saying "I don't remember" in all his depositions until he could no longer "keep denying until they die".  Also, Cardinal Law was already  forewarned -- in 1985-  personally by the priest Tom Doyle, (read more in the citation below.)

Here are proofs there were other investigative journalists -- especially in Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Times -- who were publishing articles on clergy sexual abuse-- long BEFORE Boston Globe.  In 1988, The Los Angeles Times published "It's As If No One Wants to Face What Happened," One Father Said. Church, Families Deal with Child Sex Abuse by Priests. By Marita Hernandez and John Dart. Los Angeles Times .June 20, 1988

New Orleans also was publishing articles on clergy sexual abuse-- long BEFORE Boston Globe. According to Wikipedia, Jason Berry won his first Catholic Press Association Award in 1986 for his original coverage in the National Catholic Reporter of the clergy sexual-abuse scandals in Louisiana. He was awarded his second in 1993 for the publication of Lead Us Not into Temptation: Catholic Priests and the Sexual Abuse of Children.

An NCR cover story reported that in 1985, a 92-page report on clergy sex abuse was distributed to U.S. bishops concerning more than 100 lawsuits that could predictably cost a billion dollars. Kristen Lombardi, writing in the Boston Phoenix, quoted Doyle as saying he had high hopes that the U.S. bishops would receive the report well. Doyle thought Boston Cardinal Bernard Law would play a key role.  Cardinal Law at the time headed the National Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Research and Pastoral Practices. He would be the person to lobby the other bishops to bring the report to life. Doyle had known Law since the late 1960s.  Therefore Cardinal Bernard Law was not naïve on this matter and was expecting for what he already knew 17 years ago -- BEFORE Boston Globe published anything.  And it’s not as if he pointed guns at the heads of those journalists (which typical of Hollywood fabrication of music and drama, is exaggerated in the movie).

NCR May 17, 2002, Tom Fox wrote in his article "What they knew in 1985" Cover Story:

In light of these developments, a 92-page report on clergy sex abuse, distributed to the U.S. bishops in May 1985, warning them of the trouble ahead, has been repeatedly cited by victims’ attorneys as a hard measure of episcopal negligence. The document, reportedly referred to in more than 100 lawsuits, is well known to the bishops...

When the men turned over their findings to the bishops, it might have seemed extreme to some; today it reads as a prophetic document.

The Catholic church, the three men wrote, faces “extremely serious financial consequences” and “significant injury” to its image as a result of the “sexual molestation of children by clerics, priests, permanent deacons and transient deacons, nonordained religious, lay employees and seminarians.”

At the time the men finished the final draft of the report in June 1985, they noted, more than $100 million in claims had been made against just one diocese as a result of sexual contact between a priest “and a number of minor children.” The report said the settlement for seven cases, including fees and expenses, had exceeded $5 million, and that “the average settlement for each case was nearly $500,000.” It estimated that “total projected losses for the decade” could rise to $1 billion.
The men also warned that television and newspaper reporters -- NCR was cited by name -- were already on to the story and that the American Bar Association and plaintiff lawyers were “conducting studies ... about this new, developing area of law.”

Kristen Lombardi, writing in the Boston Phoenix, quoted Doyle as saying he had high hopes that the U.S. bishops would receive the report well. Doyle thought Boston Cardinal Bernard Law would play a key role. Law at the time headed the National Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Research and Pastoral Practices. He would be the person to lobby the other bishops to bring the report to life. Doyle had known Law since the late 1960s, Lombardi reported, since the time Law served as bishop of the Springfield-Cape Girardeau diocese in Missouri.

The Boston archbishop, Doyle believed, could be counted on as a sympathetic ear. “I told Bernie, ‘This is our report,’ ” Doyle told Lombardi. “ ‘These are our recommendations. We need to get the conference to study this.’ ” Law “was very supportive,” Doyle said. He pledged to call for a special ad hoc committee to study the problem.

At the June 1985 meeting of the U.S. bishops at St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minn., the bishops were quietly briefed on the report’s contents. But, according to Doyle, the committee headed by Law never followed through on the promise to create the ad hoc committee. (our added emphases)

While Boston Globe was only (at its infancy) and just beginning its coverage in Boston, Los Angeles Times was already publishing many stories about the Jesuits of Los Gabos and television and newspaper reporters were already on lawsuits stories.

Christine Johnson  in her post in Hollywood Reporter says that she has been reporting on Jesuits pedophiles 1985 -- that's 17 years before Boston Globe -- see her comments below (with our highlights).

I reported Jesuit abuse of children in California in 1985.. I was one of many in California who confronted the archdiocese of Los Angeles and the Jesuits and their order..
A celibate gay Jesuit seminarian reported 8 Jesuit priests at the Jesuit Retreat in Los Gatos California in the 90’s for sexual harassment.. and he eventually won a settlement against them.. (it took fighting the Jesuits attempts to thwart the seminarian.
Several Jesuits raped male kitchen workers at the Jesuit retreat in los gatos.. very explicit articles were written in the LA Times about this (I have copies of the articles)
A Jesuit who taught at Loyola HS in California was in the news for raping both male and female relatives and even a Jesuit priest at Los Gatos who was punished by the Jesuits for telling about the abuse and mysteriously jumped off a state building to his death.. (the Jesuit who abused every one gerald Lindner
was seen with the victim right before he jumped….
Another Jesuit priest from Los Gatos California was arrested for dressing as a woman and luring young teens into his car for sex… these and many other articles on Jesuit abuse in California alone a re well documentedin news paper articles
It’s important to all of us whose lives were ruined by rapist Jesuits and cover up by the Jesuits that the world knows that every state has numerous stories of sexual assault by catholic priests and that Boston was not the first and only diocese to expose this….
Am glad for the film..
I just want the world to know it is much bigger than boston and hundreds of thousands of advocates, victims, media, journalists (most not catholic and not Jesuit educate) were hard at work way before boston.. in fact we set the stage for boston..
True, anyone reading the LA Times or even the Catholic Tidings in LA in the late 80s through the 90's knew everything going on and all the issues. By 2000's the news was all the predators in the public school system. The Boston story stole the headlines from the real scandals in the public school system.


"It's As If No One Wants to Face What Happened," One Father Said
Church, Families Deal with Child Sex Abuse by Priests

By Marita Hernandez and John Dart
Los Angeles Times
June 20, 1988

Several months have passed since scandal rocked the small Eastside Catholic parish. "Father Nick," the fugitive priest charged with sexually molesting at least 10 altar boys at the church and at another parish, is seldom mentioned.

At Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, nestled in the foothills of predominantly Latino El Sereno, parishioners still fill Sunday Masses celebrated in Spanish, and a new roster of altar boys assists at the services.

Parish life has returned to normal, both at Guadalupe and at the second church, St. Agatha's, a heavily Latino parish in South-Central Los Angeles.

Have Not Forgotten

Only the families most directly affected still struggle for normalcy. They haven't forgotten Father Nicolas Aguilar Rivera. They trusted the visiting priest from Mexico with their children and even welcomed him into their homes. Now they worry about the effect of the alleged molestation on the boys.

Some parents have been criticized by fellow parishioners who have accused them of blowing the situation out of proportion. There have been insinuations that the boys may have lied about what happened.

Police investigators said 26 boys were molested by the priest. The district attorney's office filed formal charges against him in 10 of the cases.

Church leaders have minimized the problem, some parents say, and have not done enough to prevent a recurrence. "It's as if no one wants to face what happened," the father of two of the alleged victims said.

In the aftermath of the incident, which also has raised questions by police about the church's handling of the case, the Los Angeles Catholic Archdiocese has improved procedures for reporting molestation cases to authorities.

Low-Keyed Response

Otherwise, little has changed. Archdiocesan leaders say it is best to handle such matters quietly, both for the sake of the families involved and to avoid making more of the problem than exists.

"My greatest concerns are priests (in general), not this very tiny, tiny percentage involved in any difficulty like this," said Los Angeles Archbishop Roger M. Mahony in an interview. He described the 1,316 diocesan, religious order and visiting priests here as "upstanding, dedicated, committed men." He said priests who experience difficulties are commonly beset by other problems such as stress, burnout, depression and alcoholism.

Mahony noted that in the last decade, fewer than one priest per year in the archdiocese has been accused of child molestation. Four priests and one religious order brother have been criminally charged or had civil lawsuits filed against them. In three or four other cases, the priests denied the accusations and no formal charges were made.

At the same time, Mahony said that, in addition to the archdiocese's customary psychological screening of candidates for its seminary, he has sought -- by removing stigmas associated with therapy -- to encourage troubled priests to seek counseling.

Nevertheless, the archdiocese is faced with a complication in that the majority of priests -- those from religious orders and those visiting from other areas -- serve here on the recommendation of their superiors and are not screened by archdiocesan psychologists.

In recent years, as reports of child molestation spread across all segments of U.S. society and public attention grew accordingly, the church has found itself no more immune to the problem than other trusted institutions.

Numerous lawsuits throughout the country have charged that the church has ignored and tried to cover up the problem, in some instances failing to notify authorities, transferring molesting priests to other parishes and ignoring parental complaints. For the first time, a statement on behalf of U.S. Catholic bishops was issued this year expressing their concern over pedophilia, the abnormal sexual desire of adults for children.

While the archdiocese has no written policy for dealing with the problem of child-molesting priests, Mahony said that the church's practice is "to respond to hurting people as best we can and as quickly as we can."

This usually involves immediately removing a priest from an assignment involving children and offering psychological services to the priest and to the victims.

In the Aguilar case, church officials confronted the priest with the accusations and removed him from his duties on a weekend -- two days before contacting police authorities. Police investigators criticized the church for the delay, which they said allowed the priest to evade arrest. Church officials countered that the police phone number they had been given for reporting such incidents was not operating on weekends.

Flight to Mexico

Aguilar, who served a few months at Guadalupe parish and six months at St. Agatha's, fled in January when he was confronted with the accusations. Aguilar is believed to have gone into hiding in Mexico, where authorities will be asked for assistance in tracking down the priest, said Detective Gary Lyon of the Los Angeles Police Department's Juvenile Division, who investigated the case.

Upon his return to Mexico, the priest stopped to visit his former bishop in Tehuacan in the state of Puebla, who said that Aguilar resigned his priestly duties without explanation and left.

Subsequent discussions between church and police representatives have resulted in a new list of phone numbers -- including some that operate around the clock and on weekends -- provided to all church facilities in the archdiocese, Mahony said.

Mahony said the archdiocese hopes to discover potential problems before they surface.

Psychologist Joseph Nicolosi of St. Thomas Aquinas Psychological Clinic in Encino, does the preliminary screening of applicants to St. John's College and Seminary in Camarillo, the training center for archdiocesan priests.

Directed to Therapy

From applicants' responses to questions about celibacy and sexual orientation, Nicolosi said he recommends that about 20% of them receive some psychotherapy for various reasons, not all sex-related.

Mahony said the church does not ask would-be seminarians if they have a sexual fascination with children; indeed, he said that psychologists tell him there are no questions that can detect a possible offender. Psychiatrist Morris Paulson of UCLA's Family Support Program said that some offenders who fondle or sexually abuse children tend to rationalize their behavior and deny they have a serious, recurring problem.

In the 10 years he has been screening seminary candidates and counseling priests, Nicolosi said the archdiocese has lately given speedier attention to requests for therapy on a whole range of problems.

"I think the atmosphere has changed from the former administration (of Cardinal Timothy Manning)," Nicolosi said. "A priest can feel free to have professional help and have the archdiocese pay for the psychotherapy."

"There is no stigma attached to counseling," Mahony said.

Seldom Discussed

Still, the issue of child molestation is seldom discussed in the archdiocese. Mahony last raised the matter with Los Angeles priests at a retreat two years ago. "An attorney, a psychiatrist and I talked about all this. It was very well received. We don't have anything ongoing beyond that for priests," he said, asserting that fewer than 1% of priests' problems in counseling are sexual.

The news weekly National Catholic Reporter said there have been at least 135 cases of sexual molestation reported from 1983 to 1986. The total through this year of cases involving priests who have been sued or charged with alleged child molestation may be climbing as high as 200 nationwide, said Father Thomas P. Doyle of Silver Spring, Md., one of the authors of a 1985 report to U.S. bishops on the situation. There are 57,000 Catholic priests in the United States.

In response to press reports on priests afflicted with pedophilia, Mark Chopko, general counsel for the U.S. Catholic bishops, issued a Feb. 9 statement saying the bishops were "deeply committed to addressing such problems positively, to making strong efforts to prevent child abuse, to repairing whatever damage has been done and to bringing the healing ministry of the church to bear wherever possible."

One of the first frank treatments of the subject publicly by a major diocese may have been that of the Seattle archdiocese, which had to deal with recent allegations against priests. A letter from Archbishop Raymond G. Hunthausen was read May 29 in western Washington parishes expressing the desire to "create a new atmosphere based on education and dialogue, so that the problem of abuse and exploitation will become a distant chapter in our past."

Any person "who has been victimized by a priest in the archdiocese" was invited to contact the archdiocese's chancellor or a pastor, according to the archdiocesan newspaper.

Limited Knowledge

In Los Angeles and other areas, a Catholic diocese may have limited background knowledge on more than half of the priests serving within its borders. In the Los Angeles archdiocese, for instance, 456 are "diocesan priests" (educated and assigned by the archdiocese), 676 are on assignment from about 50 different religious orders and 184 are visiting from other jurisdictions.

Only one of four priests sentenced, charged or sued in sexual molestation cases during the 1980s in the Los Angeles archdiocese was a diocesan priest -- Father Donald P. Roemer, who was sentenced to a state hospital in 1981 and placed on 10 years' probation in 1983.

"A priest cannot knock on the door and just be assigned," said Mahony. He said a full explanation for coming to the archdiocese is required from a visiting priest's former bishop. With religious orders, Msgr. Thomas Curry, archdiocesan vicar for the clergy, said, "We presume that they have checked the person out and that there are no problems."

A lawsuit filed last month against the archdiocese involves a Dominican order brother and priest, both accused of sexually abusing a former altar boy at St. Dominic's Church in Eagle Rock between 1983 and 1986. The suit alleges that the men separately gave the youth illegal drugs and forced him to have sex with each of them.

"The Dominicans were totally unaware of any problems" when they were assigned to the parish, Mahony said.

Recalls Suspension

Father John Flannery, the Oakland-based administrator of the Dominicans' western province, said in a statement last week that he suspended the priest, Father Cristobal Garcia, in November, 1985, well before the recent allegations were made public.

Flannery's statement, issued through Ron Larson, the province's attorney, said that Garcia refused to cooperate with Flannery's inquiry and left for his home in the Philippines "and separated himself from the provincial's control." Garcia was officially removed from the order in June, 1986, but he was later accepted by the Archbishop of Cebu to serve there, Larson said.

The Cebu archdiocese was advised of the allegations, Larson said, but because Garcia is no longer a Dominican, the order has had no further contact with the priest or his new superiors.

The lawsuit also names Brother Juan Macias, who left St. Dominic parish in 1986, before the allegations against him surfaced. "We are hearing those charges (against him) for the first time," Larson said. He said Macias has been abroad and has been summoned to the Oakland provincial's office.

In another case involving a religious order priest, Father John A. Salazar, 31, a Piarist Father who taught at Santa Teresita School in the City Terrace area, in August pleaded guilty to two felony counts of molesting boys, ages 13 and 14, and was sentenced to six years in prison.

Issues of Lawsuits

A suit is still pending in that case, and it has raised issues that have become almost commonplace in such lawsuits against the church.

Parents of the 13-year-old said in the suit that their son complained twice to his teacher and once to his principal about the molestations, but that both failed to notify authorities and allowed the priest to continue teaching and celebrating Mass. The parents said it was not until another student complained that church officials forced Salazar to turn himself into law enforcement authorities.

At Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Agatha's parishes, most of the eight families interviewed for this story expressed varying degrees of dissatisfaction with the church's response to the Aguilar incident. Many said they were disappointed that their church did not do more to alert parishioners of the problem. Although a recent community meeting was held at one of the parishes to discuss child sexual abuse with an archdiocesan-appointed psychologist, some of the affected families said they did not attend out of fear of publicly identifying their children.

Doyle, the U.S. bishops' adviser on the subject, said that most dioceses direct their education programs to priests, not to people in the parishes.

Alert to Priests

"I believe this is probably the best way to go," Doyle said. "It alerts priests to what the nature of the problem is and may reduce the sensationalism. It creates an atmosphere of compassion among the priests so there is an understanding that this is a disorder and not a moral failing."

A couple from St. Agatha's complained early on that their parish pastor first explained Aguilar's sudden absence to his congregation as a "family emergency."

The first official communication from church officials came nearly two months later in the form of a vaguely worded letter from Mahony, which was read at Sunday Masses and expressed his concern over the matter. Several parents, however, said that the letter was so abstruse that no one but those who already knew about the allegations could have understood its message.

Mahony later sent a second letter to each of the affected families, offering them free counseling services.

"They should tell the whole parish about what happened so that people are more alert and parents can take greater precautions. Maybe that way we can prevent something like this from happening again," one mother said. Like the other parents, she spoke only on condition that her name not be used.

"My husband says he'll never trust anyone again," one of the parents said. "What happened has also destroyed our children's trust. Our 10-year-old wanted to be a priest but now he won't even go near one."

Some Are Satisfied

A few of the parents, as well as other parishioners, however, say they are satisfied with the church's handling of the matter.

"I think there's been plenty of publicity in the papers and on the news about what happened. People have opened their eyes to it," said Lila Campos, a leader at Guadalupe parish. "People have gotten over it."

While several of the affected parents suggested that the church provide greater information on the problem of child-molesting priests through sermons, children's plays and community meetings, Mahony maintains that there is also danger in focusing too much attention on the problem.

"Our professional staff, especially our psychologists, have always cautioned against overreacting," he said. He has been advised that developing programs for children that focus on the problem can be counter-effective, he said.

Molested at St. Anthony's
The Revelations Involve One-Quarter of the Priests Who Taught at the Now-Closed School
By Andrew Rice
Santa Barbara Independent
December 2-9, 1993
[Note: This article was scanned from a copy of the original newspaper in the Ray & Anne Higgins Archive. We thank them for their assistance. is solely responsible for this web posting. See also Silence hid evil secret, by Victor Inzunza and Morgan Green, Santa Barbara News-Press, December 5, 1993.]
BETWEEN 1964 AND 1987, when St. Anthony's Seminary High School closed because of financial problems, a total of 44 friars taught classes there. A report released Monday night by an independent board of inquiry formed to investigate allegations of sexual abuse there revealed that 11 of those men sexually abused boys at the school, as well as their siblings, some as young as seven years old. A 12th friar is suspected of "grooming" a student for a sexual relationship but did not go through with it. Most of the victims were high school students studying to become priests.
Fifty victims, parents, and concerned parishioners attended the meeting where the report was presented Monday night at the Goleta Community Center. With the 11 members of the board of inquiry lined up behind a long table it looked like a '90s version of Leonardo Da Vinci's The Last Supper. In the audience were reporters from all the network news shows as well as TV's A Current Affair.
Despite the gravity and brazenness of the abuses, victims say fear that their parents and authorities would not believe them kept them from coming forward.
The report comes four years after the first victim came forward to press charges against Father Philip Wolfe for sex crimes he committed in 1987. As a result, Wolfe was jailed for six months. Since then, the trickle of revelations has turned into a torrent.
Nine months ago, under pressure from victims and parents, the Franciscan Order established an independent board to figure out what really happened. Last spring the board, which included three therapists, one parent of a victim, a lawyer, and several priests, mailed almost 900 letters to former students searching for others who had been abused. To help others come forward the board has also set up an 800 number. The board's most recent count shows that 34 men came forward to reveal that they were molested while at the seminary, and another was approached by a priest but not molested.
AN ATMOSPHERE OF FEAR: Newspaper clips from the 1960s and '70s portray St. Anthony's Seminary as a serious yet wholesome and nurturing environment where, in the words of one article, students "almost never miss their eight hours of sleep."
The 72-page document describes something much different. The testimony of those involved shows how an atmosphere of fear and spiritual blackmail that cloaked the campus enabled abuse to go on for 23 years. Though no single friar was present all that time, there was always at least one offending friar on staff. At one point there were five on a staff of about eight. Still, despite the gravity and brazenness of the abuse, victims say fear that their parents and authorities would not believe them kept them from coming forward.
The report is frank and graphic in its depiction of what went on at the school. One priest used to come into the student dormitory at night, where he caressed and masturbated students, and on at least one occasion, tried to sodomize a student while he slept. Another friar seduced a student into a yearlong relationship during which they went on trips together and had sex nearly every night. Other former students told of being forced to submit to "hernia examinations" during which a friar would call them into his room alone and fondle their genitals under the guise of treating them for physical ailments, even though there was a doctor on call.
Another priest took hundreds of nude photographs of students and their younger siblings in the seminary and surrounding grounds.
Those contacted by the board report that physical abuse was also rampant. To discipline students, friars routinely broke rulers over student's backs or backhanded them so hard that one student who bore much of the priests' wrath was voted "most beaten" by his classmates. The atmosphere at the school sometimes led to incidents in which students sexually and physically abused other students.
WHAT NOW? As revealing as the report is, for many involved it is not explicit enough. Where, they ask, are these priests now? What is their HIV status? And most importantly, who are they, and what steps can be taken to ensure they don't abuse others again?
Father Joseph Chinnici, the Provincial of the Province of Santa Barbara, and the head of the Franciscan order for seven Western states, claims the remaining priests have all been removed from contact with minors, are being monitored, and have received or are still receiving treatment as sex offenders. None work in Santa Barbara anymore. However, parents and victims are not satisfied and won't be until the priests' identities are made public.
Since the school closed in 1987 and the statute of limitations on sexual abuse is six years, most of these cases stand little chance of being prosecuted. Some of the victims and parents argue that these men could be charged for crimes they may have committed after leaving St. Anthony's, crimes for which the statute of limitations hasn't run out. "I think we need to go into each parish and investigate where they have been," urged one mother of a victim.
'I don't think we've seen all the predators yet, and there are a lot of other victims who haven't been able to come forth.'
So far two of the priests have been identified, both by their victims. One, Father Wolfe, was prosecuted, sent to jail, and defrocked. For the other, Father Robert Van Handel, the former choir director and rector, the statute of limitations for criminal prosecution had expired. Van Handel was removed from a church in San Francisco in 1992. Another of the 12 died recently.
Chinnici said the Franciscans did not reveal the names of the remaining nine because to do so, they fear, would allow victims to be identified. The Provincial said that the smallness of the school made it difficult to maintain the victims' privacy. Others, however, close to the case speculate that the order is afraid of defamation suits by priests it identified. Chinnici did not deny that possibility, but said there is nothing stopping the victims from publicly naming their abusers.
That may be only a matter of time. The order has spent almost $90,000 to pay for counseling of students who came forth; the counseling, offered for free, will continue. The Franciscans have settled a few cases with former students out of court for an undisclosed amount. It's likely, however, that somebody will take a case to court. Then, "Those names will come out I'm sure," said one mother whose sons were abused by two priests. "It will just take a little time."
She contends that what has been revealed is not the last chapter in the St Anthony's saga. "I don't think we've seen all the predators yet, and there are a lot of other victims who haven't been able to come forth." The story made news all over the country, and "now I bet that 800 number is ringing," she said, as former students who weren't reached by the board hear about it.
As part of its report, the board of inquiry recommended more careful screening of candidates for the priesthood, creation of a permanent panel to investigate sexual abuse charges, and continued free counseling for victims. The Franciscan order promised to implement the recommendations.
Meanwhile the victims and their families struggle to deal with the blow dealt them when the institution they had faith in failed them. "This is a torn-up group of people," said a family member of a victim. "[The friars] think they can charisma [sic] all over the place and it will all be okay, but now I can’t even walk in the church door." This lifelong Catholic had once hoped to see her sons become priests.
One victim put it even more bluntly. "I believe," he told the board, that "God has a twisted sense of humor and he uses me for his amusement."

Cloak of Silence Covered Abuse at Jesuit Retreat

* Religious order admits two retarded men were victimized. Talks are underway to settle $10-million suit.

By GLENN F. BUNTING, Times Staff Writer

LOS GATOS, Calif. -- Two mentally disabled men who live and work at a Jesuit retreat were sexually abused by members of the clergy for at least five years, according to court records and interviews.

In a case that drew no public attention, one of the clergymen, Brother Charles Leonard Connor, was convicted last year of committing a lewd act on one victim.

 He is free after six months of home detention. Another Jesuit, Father Edward Thomas Burke, admitted to his superior two years ago that he engaged in sexual misconduct with the other victim, documents show.

Police reports and internal memos reveal a pattern of warnings followed by a reluctance on the part of some Jesuit leaders to notify authorities--much like dozens of other cases of sexual abuse involving Catholic priests that have surfaced around the country.

In addition to Connor, three other Jesuits are registered as sex offenders in Northern California. All three were convicted in separate cases involving minors.

Connor and Burke, both 80, are among four Jesuits named as defendants in a lawsuit charging that the mentally impaired men were subjected to repeated acts of sodomy, molestation and false imprisonment at Sacred Heart Jesuit Center. Attorneys representing the California Province of the Society of Jesus, commonly known as the Jesuits, have been negotiating a monetary settlement with lawyers for the two victims over the past year.

Father Thomas H. Smolich, head of the California Province, acknowledged that Connor and Burke took advantage of the mentally disabled men. He said allegations that any other members of the Jesuit order sexually abused the victims are unsubstantiated.

"Clearly, two men did things they shouldn't have done. We are not denying that," Smolich said in an interview. "I wish this hadn't happened. I want to make sure that it never happens again."

An attorney for the California Province, Paul E. Gaspari, added: "We're not saying sexual misconduct didn't go on. We're saying we didn't know it was going on."

However, an acquaintance of the victims alerted Jesuit superiors to possible sexual misconduct at the retreat in 1995. Two years later, Santa Clara County sheriff's deputies visited the Sacred Heart Jesuit Center after a nearby shopkeeper, acting on behalf of the victims, made allegations of molestations.

Jesuit superiors at Sacred Heart relocated Burke in April 2000, after he admitted having sexual contact with one victim, but they did not notify authorities. Connor also was removed, but only after a sheriff's detective threatened to have him arrested. The Jesuit superiors sent Connor to a residence on the campus of the all-boys Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose without telling school officials that he was under investigation for sex crimes.

The three other Jesuits who are registered sex offenders also lived at Sacred Heart in Los Gatos. Their offenses did not occur at the facility and did not involve the two mentally disabled men. Two clergymen were convicted in separate felony cases of molesting 7-year-old girls. The third, an associate pastor at Most Holy Trinity parish in San Jose at the time of his arrest, was convicted on two counts of oral copulation with a minor.

Until now, the sex crimes by Jesuits and the abuses alleged in the civil lawsuit have not been disclosed publicly. Unlike many of the cases involving pedophile priests that have been reported in the media recently, the abuses at Sacred Heart occurred in the last few years and the victims are mentally incapacitated adults, who are granted fewer legal protections than minors.

Across the country, the Roman Catholic Church has been grappling with allegations of sexual misconduct by priests and mounting criticism that church leaders have been slow to act. To date, individual dioceses in the U.S. have paid hundreds of millions of dollars to victims of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy.

The Jesuits make up the largest religious order in the Catholic Church. Founded in 1540 by St. Ignatius Loyola, a Basque nobleman, the Jesuits have more than 21,000 members serving 112 nations.

The Jesuit order is divided into 10 provinces in the U.S. Smolich oversees 457 Jesuit members in four Western states and Hawaii. His office is located on the property of Sacred Heart, a picturesque retirement community for about 65 Jesuits overlooking the Santa Clara Valley.

Since he was appointed provincial in 1999, Smolich said, he has made his position on sexual harassment and sex abuse unmistakably clear.

"We don't tolerate it," he said.

Smolich, 47, who reports directly to the Jesuit superior general in Rome, said he believes sexual misconduct is not a problem within the California Province. Aside from the four registered sex offenders, only two cases of sexual abuse with minors appear in province files in the last 15 years, he said. They involved inappropriate touching, Smolich said.

In both cases, the Jesuits received treatment and are active again in ministries, although their contact with children is restricted. Smolich declined to provide names of the offenders or any other details.

Of the seven clergymen convicted of sex crimes or named in the civil lawsuit, five were previously employed at Jesuit high schools. Smolich said he is unaware of any prior complaints of sexual misconduct filed against those clergymen.

Smolich said "mitigating circumstances," such as the advanced ages of the defendants and the diminished mental capacity of the victims, make it difficult to determine the precise nature of the sexual abuse alleged in the lawsuit. "This is hard. It is complicated," Smolich said. "We're never going to know what really happened. We just aren't."

Connor and Burke both cited their 5th Amendment privilege against self-incrimination on numerous occasions during depositions taken recently. They were not made available for comment by the California Province or their attorneys.

The lawsuit, filed June 19, 2001, in Santa Clara County Superior Court, alleges that the two victims were sexually abused for "as long as 30 years." This claim is based on statements by the victims that the molestations began within a year of their arrival at Sacred Heart, said M. Jean Starcevich, the victims' attorney. The plaintiffs are seeking more than $10 million in damages.

The two victims at Sacred Heart are referred in court documents as "John Doe" and "James Doe."

John, 56, was born in San Francisco and contracted polio as a child. He was raised in foster homes, attended Polytechnic High School in San Francisco in the early 1960s, and moved to Sacred Heart on Oct. 8, 1969, at the age of 24.

He has one leg substantially smaller and shorter than the other, suffers severe back pain as well as arthritis in the hands and recently underwent a hernia operation. He is a huge Elvis Presley fan and spends time hand-painting medals to pin on his military shirts.

James, 50, was born in Germany and adopted from an orphanage as a toddler by a U.S. Air Force officer and his wife. His parents were divorced when he was 10. He never attended school and spent his teenage years in a state mental institution. He arrived at Sacred Heart on Aug. 26, 1970, at the age of 19.

He is a railroad buff who enjoys viewing tapes from his collection of more than 100 train videos. Whenever possible, James will spend hours at a railroad station watching trains arrive and depart.

Both men have been diagnosed as suffering from mental retardation. At Sacred Heart, they were employed as dishwashers responsible for cleaning, drying and storing pots and pans used in preparing meals for the Jesuits. They were paid a starting salary of $150 per month.

"The purpose of them being here was charitable," said Gaspari, the Jesuits' attorney.

Before they were placed on paid administrative leave a year ago, John and James earned about $1,000 per month with expenses deducted for room and board. They still occupy adjacent rooms on the second floor of a storage facility, which is separate from the Jesuit residence. The sexual abuse took place in the victims' rooms, according to statements they made to a psychiatrist.

Victim's Acquaintance Reported Abuse

The following accounts are drawn from criminal and civil filings, transcripts of confidential depositions, police reports and internal Jesuit memos. In addition, more than 50 interviews were conducted with prosecutors, investigators, members of the Society of Jesus, lawyers, guardians for the victims and other sources.

The first indications of sexual misconduct were reported to Sacred Heart in May 1995 by John's financial advisor. According to a sheriff's report, she had heard rumors from the kitchen staff that Brother Connor was molesting John. She knew that Connor had taken John on trips and spent considerable time alone with him. When she asked John about the rumors, he "became very upset and began to shake" before saying that Connor had been touching his private parts, according to the report.

She reported Connor to Father Greg Aherne, the Jesuit superior at Sacred Heart at the time. Aherne talked to Connor, who initially denied the allegations before admitting that "maybe he had done some inappropriate touching" while giving John massages, Aherne would tell sheriff's detectives years later. Connor later told detectives that he began giving John massages in 1985 to ease his back pains.

Aherne ordered Connor to read the California Province policy on sexual harassment and misconduct, which specifically banned the practice of Jesuits giving or assisting in massages "because of the liability involved." Connor also signed a May 4, 1995, letter from Aherne that ordered him to stay away from John and James. Aherne filed a separate memo notifying Father John Privett, the California provincial at the time who lived and worked at Sacred Heart.

Neither Aherne nor Privett alerted law enforcement authorities.

In October 1997, the Sheriff's Department was notified by Holly Ilse, a Los Gatos dress shop owner who had befriended both victims, that James had confided to her that Connor was fondling him. Two uniformed deputies were dispatched to Sacred Heart to interview John and James. Both men denied being molested and the case was dropped.

Years later, John and James each told investigators that they did not say anything about the abuses because they had been threatened repeatedly by Connor not to do so.

Another Call Alleges More Abuse

Detectives reopened their investigation in the spring of 2000 after receiving another call from Ilse alleging more abuse. Since she first heard reports of molestation in 1997, Ilse, 36, the only daughter of a retired San Jose police lieutenant, had badgered investigators and county protective services workers on the victims' behalf. At Ilse's request, the Sheriff's Department sent a female plainclothes detective to interview John at the dress shop.

John told Det. Dianne L. Camarda that the molestations occurred at night in his room while he was sleeping and sometimes in the shower.

Camarda arranged to interview James at the dress shop. James initially recounted one occasion in which Connor gave him a massage and touched his private area. Camarda wrote that James "seemed very truthful and ashamed about the incident." Camarda and a fellow deputy drove up to Sacred Heart and discussed the allegations with Father Richard Cobb, the superior at the residence at the time. Cobb told the deputies he was unaware of any previous problems with Connor and that he preferred that John be moved off the property, not Connor.

In an interview, Camarda recalled telling Cobb that Connor had to go: "You will move him. If you don't, he is going to jail."

Connor was promptly transferred to the Bellarmine Jesuit residence on the high school campus. "We had to move quickly. Given the circumstances, we felt it was the best place for Charlie," Smolich said.

Father William Muller, president of Bellarmine, said he received a routine telephone call from Cobb's assistant requesting a room for Connor. The failure to notify anyone at the high school about the reason for Connor's transfer resulted from "a breakdown in communication," Smolich said.

Connor lived at Bellarmine for a total of five months, two of them while school was in session. Muller said he was under the impression that Connor had been on campus for a much shorter period of time. "I'm more distressed about it now than I was before," Muller said.

Connor was interviewed at Bellarmine by sheriff's detectives on the morning of April 20, 2000. He proclaimed he had done nothing wrong and declined to take a polygraph exam.

Sheriff's detectives returned to Sacred Heart with a search warrant June 21. They uncovered Aherne's 1995 letters describing Connor's misconduct and a three-page memo written by Father Cobb on April 21, 2000, detailing his conversations about Connor with other Jesuit superiors. In his notes, Cobb recounted that Father Burke, the librarian at Sacred Heart, admitted to having sexual contact with James.

Cobb wrote that Burke told him: "How long has this happened? About four years--in his room. We always watch train videos. Yes, there has been some sexual contact in my room. Last sexual contact, three weeks ago, in his [James'] room."

Burke also told Cobb that he knew about Connor's sexual misconduct with both victims. "He told me that [John and James] had confided in him that Charlie Connor had in fact been touching them sexually for some time."

Cobb, in a sworn deposition, said that he went upstairs to the provincial's office and told a top assistant to Smolich, "We got a problem."

No one at Sacred Heart notified authorities about Burke's statement.

The Jesuits have no obligation under California law to disclose the information, said Gaspari, the Jesuits' lawyer. "We are not mandated reporters because these two individuals are not minors."

Nor did anyone attempt to inform guardians of the two victims. Within hours, Cobb drove Burke to the Jesuit community at Santa Clara University, where he lives today.

Cleric Sentenced in Molestations

In addition to implicating Connor, Cobb's memo led sheriff's detectives to look at Burke as a possible suspect.

On July 11, 2000, Sgt. Lawrence Goodman and Camarda went to Sacred Heart to interview Burke. A receptionist told them that Burke was seriously ill and staying with family for an indefinite time, according to a sheriff's report.

At that time, Goodman and Camarda said, they decided to seek a warrant for Connor's arrest and did not pursue Burke any further due to a lack of evidence.

The Jesuits have no record of Burke becoming seriously ill or taking a sick leave after he was transferred to the Jesuit residence. Smolich said no deliberate attempt was made to hide Burke from authorities.

On Jan. 17, 2001, Connor pleaded no contest to one felony count of committing lewd acts on a dependent adult. He was sentenced to wear an electronic monitoring device for six months, ordered to register as a lifetime sex offender and forbidden to have any contact with mentally disabled adults or minors. Connor completed his sentence Nov. 1 and is living at a Jesuit residence in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The prosecutor and investigators said they were satisfied with the outcome because it is difficult in sex cases involving mentally disabled victims to secure a conviction in a jury trial.

The sentence infuriated Ilse, John's court-appointed guardian in the lawsuit.

"How can an old priest in Boston get nine years for touching a boy in a swimming pool and Connor get no jail time for molesting his victims for years?" Ilse asked. She was referring to the sentence in January given to Father John J. Geoghan Jr., 66, who also is accused of molesting more than 130 children over three decades.

Within weeks of Connor's sentencing, Ilse and James' sister, Debra Sullivan, hired three San Jose lawyers to file a civil lawsuit on behalf of the victims. The attorneys began gathering information and obtained the Cobb memo from the Jesuits.

Disclosures a Shock to James' Sister

Sullivan said she was devastated when she learned about Burke's admission of sexual misconduct with her brother. She and James had become close to Burke, taking him on out-of-town trips and drives in the country to see old barns. Sullivan said Burke spent hours and hours in her brother's room watching train videos with him.

"It's just a terrible, terrible betrayal," she said. "This is so horrendous, so evil and so corrupt."

Smolich said he regrets that Sullivan was never informed by Jesuits. "What happened to [James] shouldn't have happened. It wasn't fair to [James]. It wasn't fair to Debra. We are doing what we can to make it right."

Sullivan said she reluctantly held off filing a criminal complaint against Burke until the civil lawsuit is resolved on the advice of her attorney. "I want to see Burke in jail," she said.

A short time after learning about the Cobb memo, Sullivan said, she sat down with her brother to discuss the molestations. According to Sullivan's sworn deposition, James identified six Jesuits at Sacred Heart who sexually abused him: Burke, Connor, two other brothers named in the lawsuit, a "Brother Moniz" and a man named "Angel."

Sullivan said she recognized four of the names from her frequent visits to Sacred Heart over the past two decades. But she had never heard of Moniz or anyone named "Angel."

Others Registered as Sex Offenders

Brother John Rodrigues Moniz, 80, and Father Angel Mariano, 46, are registered sex offenders who were convicted of felony sex crimes with minors. Both lived at Sacred Heart in recent years. Neither man has been accused in criminal or civil courts of molesting John or James.

Moniz was convicted in 1995 after pleading no contest to one felony count of lewd conduct with a minor for fondling a 7-year-old girl in Los Gatos. He was placed on three years' probation, ordered to have no contact with children and required to pay his victim's uninsured medical expenses and psychological treatment. He now lives at Vianney Renewal Center in Dittmer, Mo., a facility that treats sex offenders run by Paraclete priests.

Mariano was arrested about midnight Sept. 21, 1998, in Campbell, Calif., near San Jose when a police officer caught him in a sex act with a 17-year-old student in a parked car. According to police reports, Mariano arranged to meet two teenagers by posing as a 25-year-old woman on an Internet chat room. He wore lipstick and rouge when he met the boys.

Mariano was convicted March 16, 1999, on two felony counts of oral copulation with a minor and spent about five months in Santa Clara County Jail. At the time of his arrest, Mariano served as an associate pastor for four years at Most Holy Trinity Church in San Jose, one of 13 parishes that are staffed by Jesuits within the province.

Mariano was removed without any explanation. Asked why parishioners at Holy Trinity were not made aware of the reasons for Mariano's departure, Smolich said: "Why should they? This is an Internet cruising thing. This is anonymous sex. This doesn't involve people at the parish. It wasn't a priest thing. He wasn't dressed in a collar."

Before he was ordained, Mariano taught at Bellarmine from 1988 to 1991. Since his arrest, Mariano lived at Sacred Heart off and on for about four months.

The presence of two mentally disabled victims of sexual abuse at Sacred Heart was "never a consideration" when Mariano was assigned to live there, Smolich said. "He needed a place to come back to. The issues around Father Mariano's situation have nothing to do with mentally disabled adults," he said.

Mariano had virtually no contact of any kind with either victim at Sacred Heart, Smolich said.

Mariano is living under the supervision of Smolich and his top assistant, Father Tony Sholander, at their residence near Santa Clara University.

"Clearly, his opportunities for ministry in the future are circumspect at best," Smolich said. "I'm not going to assign him somewhere where he has any contact with minors. I can't and I won't."

The fourth registered sex offender, Father James Thomas Monaghan, was convicted in 1992 of felony lewd conduct for fondling a 7-year-old girl who was brought to him for counseling while he was pastor of St. Ignatius parish in Sacramento. Monaghan, 87, is now in the infirmary at Sacred Heart.

Because Jesuits are required take a vow of poverty, they are not forced out of the ministry when they encounter legal problems, Smolich said. Recently, Cardinal Roger M. Mahony of the Los Angeles Archdiocese dismissed about a half dozen priests who previously had engaged in sexual misconduct.

"Diocesan priests have retirement accounts," Smolich said. "They can leave and take care of themselves. Men who have spent their lives in the Jesuit order have nothing. We are not in a position to throw them out. I wouldn't do it."

Excerpt of next article -- which is a follow-up of the 2002 news on Los Gatos Jesuits-pedophiles

In a 2002 Los Angeles Times article, Lynch said he'd had nightmares for years, battled depression and alcoholism and had attempted suicide twice because of the priest's abuse.

Paedophile priest's victim to go on trial for 'revenge' attack 35 years later

A Californian man was told today he will stand trial for allegedly beating up a Catholic priest he claims molested him more than three decades ago.

William Lynch, 43, smiled in his mugshot last October as he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon for the attack last May.

The attack, which happened at a retirement home in Los Gatos, sent the Rev. Jerold Lindner to the hospital with bruises and lacerations.

Lynch harboured a fantasy for years of confronting the priest, who also allegedly molested Lynch's little brother and up to a dozen others.

Debbie Lukas, who leads a group of Lynch supporters, said a Santa Clara County Judge ruled today he must be tried on one count of assault.

Lindner has denied that he molested Lynch.

'They're saying it was pretty close to beating him to death,' Pat Harris, defending, said last October.

'They're essentially saying that he waited all these years and then took out his revenge. It's sort of the ultimate revenge story.'

Lynch will be pleased with the judge's decision as he wants to expose the alleged molestation and raise awareness of clergy abuse during a trial.

Lynch and his younger brother settled with the Jesuits of the California Province, a Roman Catholic religious order, for $625,000 in 1998 after alleging that Lindner abused them in 1975 during camping trips in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The boys, who were seven and five at the time, were raped in the woods and forced to have oral sex with each other while Lindner watched, Harris said.

Lindner has been accused of abuse by nearly a dozen people, including his own sister and nieces and nephews.

Authorities say Lynch lured the clergyman to the lobby of a Jesuit retirement home and beat him in front of shocked witnesses.

Sergeant Rick Sung, Santa Clara County sheriff's spokesman, said Lynch attacked the 65-year-old priest after he failed to recognise him at the Jesuits' Sacred Heart retirement home in Los Gatos.

The attack occurred in a small room adjoining the lobby.

Police connected Lynch to the attack using phone records, Sung said.

A half hour before the beating, a caller identifying himself as 'Eric' called the rest home and said someone would arrive shortly to inform Lindner of a family member's death.

'The Father shows up in the lobby, at which point he was asked by the suspect if he knew who he was. When the Father answered 'no,' that's when the suspect started attacking,' Sung said.
'He was punching him in the face and all over the body. After the Father goes down, then the suspect takes off.'
Lindner was able to drive himself to the hospital.

He was removed from ministry and placed at the Los Gatos retirement home in 2001. He was named in two additional lawsuits for abuse between 1973 and 1985, according to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
The cases were included in the record-breaking $660million settlement struck between the church and more than 550 plaintiffs in 2007.

In a 2002 Los Angeles Times article, Lynch said he'd had nightmares for years, battled depression and alcoholism and had attempted suicide twice because of the priest's abuse.

'Many times I thought of driving down to LA and confronting Father Jerry. I wanted to exorcise all of the rage and anger and bitterness he put into me,' Lynch said.

'You can't put into words what this guy did to me. He stole my innocence and destroyed my life.'

Lindner was ordained in 1976 and taught at various Catholic high schools during his career, including 16 years as chairman of the English department at Loyola High School, a prestigious Catholic prep school in Los Angeles.

He launched nearly two dozen after-school programs for students there, including a chess club and renaissance club, and became master of a Boy Scout troop that included mostly lower-income Puerto Rican boys, his older brother, Larry Lindner, said.

Most of Lindner's family severed contact with him years ago after discovering he had molested his nieces and nephews when they were as young as three.

They were unaware of the attack, said his sister, Kathy McEntire.

Ms McEntire said her brother molested her starting when she was five - and she learned 15 years ago that he also abused her son for years. She last spoke to her brother in 2001.

'Jerry's violent and I would not be surprised if he did get beat up. I could understand somebody getting that mad,' she said.

'I've often said myself that I don't trust myself around him. I would likely wind up in jail because I'd probably kick him somewhere where the sun doesn't shine - and I'm his sister.'

During their last visit nine years ago, Ms McEntire asked Lindner if any of the abuse allegations were true.
'I said, 'Is it true? He said, "Well, some of it,"' McEntire said. 'I called him a few choice words and that was the last time I ever saw him.'

Larry Lindler, a retired Los Angeles police officer, said he last saw his brother more than two decades ago after he walked in on him molesting his 8-year-old daughter during a visit.

The two were playing a game called 'blankie' in which Lindner asked the little girl to lie over his lap like a blanket and then wiggled around as if trying to get comfortable.

'The last contact I had with him personally was the day after I caught him with my daughter and I told him he best get in his vehicle and leave,' he recalled.

'I said, 'If I go out to the truck and get my off-duty weapon out of the glove box, you're a dead man.'

Although rare, it's not unheard of for victims of sexual abuse to take revenge upon their abusers - and it can be normal for victims to fantasize about revenge without acting on it, said Steven Danish, a professor of psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University who's counseled sexual abuse victims.

In Lynch's case, reading about Lindner in media accounts throughout the years and realizing he had gone unpunished could have pushed Lynch to act, said Mr Danish, who has not treated Lynch.

'Imagine holding something inside for 35 years and letting it fester,' Mr Danish said. 'He's probably thinking: "You're living your life and here I am a failure and all because of what you did to me on that day."'

There have been several other instances of violence, sometimes fatal, against priests accused of abuse since the Roman Catholic clergy abuse scandal unfolded in 2002.

In Baltimore, a man who claimed he was sodomized and fondled by a priest a decade before shot the clergyman three times after the priest told him to go away when he demanded an apology.

The defendant was acquitted of attempted murder but served 18 months of home detention on a gun conviction.

The following year, priest John Geoghan was strangled to death in his cell by a fellow inmate who claimed he was chosen by God to kill paedophiles.

Geoghan was serving a nine- to ten-year sentence for groping a boy and was at the centre of the Boston clergy abuse scandal. He had been accused of molesting as many as 150 boys.

The Rev. John McGarry, the provincial, said Lindner had fully recovered and had resumed his work at the retirement home, where he helps care for 75 retired and invalid priests.

'As you can imagine it's very emotionally distressing to go through something like this. He hasn't spoken a lot about it,' Rev. McGarry said of Lindner.

'He's living a quiet life of prayer and service within our community.'

Priest Pleads Guilty to Sexual Abuse

Crime: Jesuit, 80, admits to molesting a mentally disabled worker at a church facility in the 1990s. Sentencing is set for June 28.

An 80-year-old Catholic priest pleaded guilty Thursday to sexually abusing a mentally disabled man during the 1990s at a Jesuit retreat overlooking the Santa Clara Valley.

Father Edward Thomas Burke faces a maximum three years in state prison for molesting a 50-year-old former kitchen worker at the Sacred Heart Jesuit Center in Los Gatos.

Burke is the second Jesuit at Sacred Heart to be prosecuted for a felony sex crime. Brother Charles Leonard Connor, also 80, served six months of home detention last year after being convicted of committing a lewd act on a disabled adult.

Connor and Burke are among four Jesuits accused in a lawsuit of repeatedly sodomizing and molesting two mentally retarded workers who still live at the facility. Attorneys for the two plaintiffs, who are seeking more than $10 million in damages, are continuing to negotiate a financial settlement with the California Province of the Society of Jesus, commonly known as the Jesuits.
The claims against Burke came to the attention of law enforcement following a March 24 story in The Times, which disclosed that four Jesuits were registered sex offenders in Northern California. Documents show that some Jesuit leaders declined to notify authorities when they learned of the allegations against Connor and Burke. Jesuit superiors quickly transferred Burke in April 2000 when he admitted to sexual misconduct with one of the men, documents show.

Burke, who was not reported to police, moved to the Jesuit residence at Bellarmine College Preparatory, an all-boys high school in San Jose. He now lives at a nursing home in San Jose.

The guilty plea, which was entered with no conditions attached, came at a routine arraignment hearing before prosecutors were required to present their case. Burke's attorney, Charles Hendrickson, said his client hopes that Superior Court Judge Kevin Murphy will consider the priest's age, declining health and early plea at his sentencing June 28.

The victim, identified in court papers as James Doe, and his family members are entitled to appear at the sentencing hearing. Debra Sullivan, the victim's sister, has said she wants to see Burke go to jail. Sullivan said her family was betrayed by Burke, who spent hours alone with the victim by posing as his friend.
Burke's punishment could range from probation and electronic monitoring to a reduced incarceration in county jail.

"We will look at all of the evidence in the case and decide what we think the proper sentence should be," said Deputy Dist. Atty. Ben Field. "That includes the defendant's age and the fact that he has lived a long life with no known criminal offenses. But it also includes some facts that weigh heavily against him.... He was in a position of trust and the person he sexually abused happened to be extremely vulnerable."

Lawyers representing the two plaintiffs in the civil suit said Burke's plea would work in their clients' favor.
"It's a slam-dunk," said Robert L. Mezzetti II. "Their civil litigation is over as far as Father Burke goes. There is no more claiming it didn't happen or it was somebody else's fault."'

If no settlement is reached, the civil suit is scheduled to go to trial Oct. 15.


Survivors of Priest Abuse offering aid to alleged Cosby victims

My News LA

Comparing the power wielded by Bill Cosby with that of an order of Catholic priests, a member of  Survivors Networks of those Abused by Priests said Friday her group is offering support to women allegedly abused by the comedian.

“We know there’s many, many of them,” Esther Miller said outside the County Courthouse in downtown Los Angeles.

The entertainment industry, like the Catholic and Mormon churches, yields “power, dominion and control over someone’s mind, body and soul,” Miller said.

Cosby, 78, was scheduled to appear for a deposition today in a lawsuit filed by Judy Huth, who claims he sexually assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, when she was 15 years old. Cosby has denied any wrongdoing.

The location of the deposition has not been made public.

Miller said Jesuit priests were able to use their strong position within the Catholic church to molest young parishioners, and said Cosby similarly has “influence, power and charm, just like the Jesuits.”

Miller, holding signs stating SNAP’s support for Cosby’s alleged victims, said many are too ashamed to go public about their experiences with the comedian.



Cover story

What they knew in 1985
17 years ago, a report on clergy sex abuse warned U.S. bishops of trouble ahead
 National Catholic Reporter, May 17, 2002

As attorneys across the nation press countless clergy sex abuse cases against the church, two critical questions they most often ask are: “What did the bishop know?” and “When did he know it?” At stake is episcopal culpability. Also at stake in thousands of lawsuits, many filed and many others still being planned, is potentially billions of dollars in payments to victims.

In light of these developments, a 92-page report on clergy sex abuse, distributed to the U.S. bishops in May 1985, warning them of the trouble ahead, has been repeatedly cited by victims’ attorneys as a hard measure of episcopal negligence. The document, reportedly referred to in more than 100 lawsuits, is well known to the bishops.

Among the insights in this document are clear statements that while help can be provided for abusive priests, there is “no hope” for a cure for some of them, that a bishop “should suspend immediately” a priest accused of sexual abuse when “the allegation has any possible merit or truth,” and that “In this sophisticated society a media policy of silence implies either necessary secrecy or cover-up.” It said, “clichés such as ‘no comment’ must be cast away.”

In some ways this is a story of what might have been or, perhaps, what might have been avoided.

As the bishops prepare for their June meeting in Dallas at which they are expected to formulate their responses to the clergy sex abuse scandal, the names of two priests and an attorney, Fr. Michael Peterson, Dominican Fr. Thomas Doyle and Ray Mouton, are likely to haunt them. These are the names of the men who attempted to warn the bishops in 1985, pleading with them to take firm actions on the sex abuse cases
The authors maintained that the bishops ignored their recommendations. For their part, the bishops deny that claim.

It was in January 1985 that Peterson, then director of St. Luke Institute in Silver Spring, Md.; Doyle, a canonist at the office of the papal nuncio, or pope’s representative, in Washington D.C.; and Mouton, a civil attorney representing a priest, Fr. Gilbert Gauthe, then charged with pedophilia, began their collaboration. The collaboration continued over five months and resulted in the report, backed with more than 100 pages of supporting evidence. The report covered the civil, canonical, and psychological aspects of priest sexual involvement with children.

When the men turned over their findings to the bishops, it might have seemed extreme to some; today it reads as a prophetic document.

The Catholic church, the three men wrote, faces “extremely serious financial consequences” and “significant injury” to its image as a result of the “sexual molestation of children by clerics, priests, permanent deacons and transient deacons, nonordained religious, lay employees and seminarians.”

At the time the men finished the final draft of the report in June 1985, they noted, more than $100 million in claims had been made against just one diocese as a result of sexual contact between a priest “and a number of minor children.” The report said the settlement for seven cases, including fees and expenses, had exceeded $5 million, and that “the average settlement for each case was nearly $500,000.” It estimated that “total projected losses for the decade” could rise to $1 billion.

The men also warned that television and newspaper reporters -- NCR was cited by name -- were already on to the story and that the American Bar Association and plaintiff lawyers were “conducting studies ... about this new, developing area of law.”

“The potential exposure to the Catholic church ... is very great,” the report added, recommending that clerics accused of abuse should not be permitted to function “in any priestly capacity.”

High recidivism

While the report stated that treatment could “help rehabilitate clerics so that they may return to active ministry,” the authors conditioned that optimism with a warning that strict conditions and lifelong treatment be imposed. Such treatment, the report said, should include a minimum six-month stay in a treatment facility, six-to-12 months of residence in a halfway house, and continuing treatment in an outpatient setting. “Recidivism is so high with pedophilia ... that all controlled studies have shown that traditional outpatient psychiatric or psychological models alone do not work,” the report said.

The men tried to cajole the bishops into taking action, begging them not to be defensive. “The purpose of this document ... is to educate you as much as we can in our professional capacities and help keep you abreast of developments in this sensitive and devastating area of human behavior,” the report stated. It urged the bishops to abandon their strategy of staying away from the media, warning, “in this sophisticated society, a media policy of silence implies either necessary secrecy or cover up.”

Kristen Lombardi, writing in the Boston Phoenix, quoted Doyle as saying he had high hopes that the U.S. bishops would receive the report well. Doyle thought Boston Cardinal Bernard Law would play a key role. Law at the time headed the National Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Research and Pastoral Practices. He would be the person to lobby the other bishops to bring the report to life. Doyle had known Law since the late 1960s, Lombardi reported, since the time Law served as bishop of the Springfield-Cape Girardeau diocese in Missouri.

The Boston archbishop, Doyle believed, could be counted on as a sympathetic ear. “I told Bernie, ‘This is our report,’ ” Doyle told Lombardi. “ ‘These are our recommendations. We need to get the conference to study this.’ ” Law “was very supportive,” Doyle said. He pledged to call for a special ad hoc committee to study the problem.

At the June 1985 meeting of the U.S. bishops at St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minn., the bishops were quietly briefed on the report’s contents. But, according to Doyle, the committee headed by Law never followed through on the promise to create the ad hoc committee.

On May 8 of this year, Law appeared in Suffolk County Superior Court to begin a deposition requested by an attorney for 86 people who have brought a civil suit accusing Law of negligence as supervisor of defrocked priest John Geoghan, now serving a 10-year prison sentence for sexual abuse of a child (NCR, Feb. 1).

The deposition proceeding on May 8 included some questions about Law’s relationship with Doyle, but no mention of Doyle’s 1985 report to the bishops. Scheduled to last three days, the deposition was expected to continue May 9, after NCR went to press.

While on May 8 Law admitted to speaking with Doyle during the time the report was being written and distributed to the bishops, he only recalled “in a vague way” Doyle’s concerns about the effectiveness of treatment centers. Furthermore, Law said he did not recall Doyle asking for a committee to help the bishops focus more directly on the clergy sex abuse issue.

Law said that sometime after his conversations with Doyle about issues of clergy sex abuse he put in place a team of psychiatrists to advise the archdiocese on the issue, though he said it was “not because of conversations with Fr. Doyle” that he created the team.

In 1992, Doyle lamented the failure of the bishops to take action on the abuse crisis. “Nothing happened,” he told a group of abuse victims at a gathering in October outside of Chicago. “Why the inaction? Why the denial?”

Doyle responded to his own questions. “To acknowledge the problem in its fullness would open the whole [clerical] system to critique,” he said. “It would weaken the presumed power base and strength of the hierarchy.” That day he characterized the church as having a “closed-in, clerical culture” that attempts to maintain deep distinctions between clergy and laity. “We are somehow different, apart and above the laity,” he added, claiming that this separation had added to the crisis by keeping the clergy aloof from the consequences of their actions on victims and others.

To many of the survivors at the gathering Doyle was one of their last links to the Catholic church. His calls for church reform that year led him to be chosen as recipient of the $10,000 Cavallo Prize for Moral Courage. The award, given by the Cavallo Foundation since 1988, goes to someone who “has chosen to speak out when it would have been far easier to remain silent.” Doyle described the gathering that weekend as “part of a momentous movement,” an awakening to the recognition of a need for “massive reform.”

Jason Berry, a Louisiana-based freelance reporter, first started writing about clergy sex abuse after Fr. Gilbert Gauthe in Lafayette, La., was indicted on charges of having molested 35 children. He covered the Gauthe trial for the National Catholic Reporter, contributed to other NCR investigations on the widening crisis, and wrote a book on the sex abuse issue, Lead Us Not Into Temptation. Along with Doyle, Berry was also at the 1992 conference sponsored by VOCAL (Victims of Clergy Abuse Linkup), a lay network that claimed to be in touch with about 3,000 clergy sexual-abuse victims and their supporters.

In his book, Berry recalled how Doyle first entered the Gauthe case. In the 1970s, Doyle had earned a master’s in theology from Aquinas Institute in Dubuque, Iowa, and a canon law degree from The Catholic University of America in Washington. He was working in the Chicago archdiocese, assisting couples with marriage annulments when, in September 1981, Archbishop Pio Laghi, then the papal representative to the United States, asked him to join the embassy staff in Washington as secretary-canonist.

A few years later, in 1984, several attorneys filed civil suits against the Lafayette diocese on behalf of abused children. One, filed by J. Minos Simon, caught Doyle’s attention because Simon named Pope John Paul II as a defendant. Doyle became disturbed that the U.S. bishops seemed to have little understanding of the magnitude of the matter. So he turned to Peterson for help. Peterson was a psychiatrist and founder of St. Luke Institute, a facility originally designed to assist religious and clergy with alcoholic and chemical dependencies. However, in the years that followed its opening in 1981, St. Luke began to treat clergy involved in sex abuse cases.

It was during the same period that Lafayette attorney F. Ray Mouton Jr. was defending Gauthe. He also sought out Peterson’s assistance, planning a possible insanity defense. Although Mouton eventually discarded that part of his strategy, according to Berry, Peterson felt it beneficial to introduce Mouton to Doyle.

“When I first met Tom Doyle in the Vatican Embassy he knew nothing about pedophilia,” Berry quoted Mouton as saying. “Within a short time he was one of the leading authorities and one of the only two priests I encountered in the country who were unafraid to acknowledge the problem and deal with it honestly. … Tom Doyle always did the right thing. He has never hesitated. And it cost him dearly.”

Trying to ward off the growing catastrophe they saw coming, Doyle, Mouton and Peterson collaborated quietly for months on the report before taking it to the bishops.

Knowing the bishops were taking up the report, Eugene Kennedy, a psychologist and longtime chronicler of the American church, and I attended the Collegeville meeting. When it became apparent that the bishops were only going to deal with the matter in executive session and after they played down the significance of the report, Kennedy became gloomy. He said at the time that the bishops were missing an historic opportunity. He predicted that the teaching authority of the U.S. bishops was now certain to decline.

No concrete actions

No concrete actions came out of that meeting. Yet the bishops have maintained that they did listen attentively to the report. A recent staff review found that, “with few exceptions,” the issues identified in the report were analyzed for the bishops by their staff and other experts, especially at the Collegeville meeting.

The bishops, however, noted that they turned down the report’s suggestion of a national intervention team (a doctor, a canonist and a lawyer) to respond to complaints in individual dioceses. “Dioceses prefer to respond through their own expert personnel, rather than a national team, due to factual and legal uniqueness of each accusation,” the bishops’ staff report stated. “Media characterizations of the report as a proposal either ignored or summarily rejected by the conference are inaccurate,” they said.

In the months and years that followed Collegeville, Doyle persisted in sounding the alarm. He clearly paid a price. In 1986 he was removed from the embassy; he also lost his teaching position in canon law at Catholic University. By several accounts he became ostracized by the bishops. That’s when he decided to take his ministry into the military where, on the side, he counseled abuse victims.

While Doyle lost favor with the church hierarchy, his former boss, Laghi, did not. He had served as Vatican representative to the United States from 1980 to 1990, the period during which the clergy abuse issue went largely unattended by the church hierarchy. After the completion of that diplomatic tour, he returned to Rome, and Pope John Paul II named him a cardinal in June 1991.

Peterson was another major author of the report. He was a psychiatrist before he entered the priesthood. I first ran into Peterson when I was a freshman at Stanford University in 1963. We frequently bicycled together to St. Ann Chapel, adjacent to the Newman Center in Palo Alto, Calif., several miles from the university campus.

Peterson had grown up as a Mormon and had converted to Catholicism at the age of 19. For years at college he went to daily Mass. He was an intelligent student with a sensitive nature and an irreverent sense of humor, attributes that accompanied him through life.

Years passed before I encountered him again, after he had finished his psychiatric degree and entered the priesthood. In the early 1980s he represented a new breed of priests, active in new professional ministries.
On numerous occasions following Collegeville, Peterson shared with me his disappointment that the bishops had not responded forcefully to their report. He, too, saw a dark cloud on the horizon. During those years as director of St. Luke Institute, Peterson also became a controversial figure. He shared with a close circle of friends that he was gay and later that he had contracted the AIDS virus. Peterson died in April 1987 and was buried at St. Matthew’s Cathedral in Washington. The burial Mass drew scores of priests and a half-dozen bishops.

By the time of Peterson’s death, Cardinal James Hickey of Washington had come to rely on Peterson, along with a number of bishops, for advice in handling sex-offending members of the clergy. During the Mass, Hickey praised Peterson’s work at St. Luke Institute, calling him a “brilliant and hard-working priest.”
While Hickey had grown close to Peterson, others in the Catholic hierarchy, including members of the Roman curia, kept their distance. This ambivalence among the church leadership toward St. Luke and Peterson’s work surfaced publicly in 1993 after Pittsburgh Bishop Donald Wuerl tried to oust from his diocese Fr. Anthony Cipolla, who had been accused by a teenage boy of molestation. Cipolla had ties to Mother Angelica’s television ministry.

Following the accusation charges, Wuerl had Cipolla evaluated at St. Luke, where staff found no evidence Cipolla was a pedophile but nevertheless recommended he be kept away from children.

Cipolla appealed to the Vatican Signatura, the church’s highest court. Blasting the St. Luke evaluation, it ruled against Wuerl, telling him to reinstate Cipolla.

The Signatura’s brief, later published in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, stated: “St. Luke Institute, a clinic founded by a priest who is openly homosexual and based on a mixed doctrine of Freudian pan-sexualism and behaviorism, is surely not a suitable institution apt to judge rightly about the beliefs and the lifestyle of a Catholic priest.”

Fr. Canice Connors, then president of St. Luke, responded: “Since its foundation in 1981, St. Luke Institute has been grounded in the Christian principles enunciated by Jesus Christ. ... To say that St. Luke Institute is not Christian is like saying a flower can exist without sunlight. At no point in the process of reaching its verdict about Cipolla was the Signatura in touch with any of the members of the staff of St. Luke Institute.
 Because of that lack of contact, I am deeply disappointed in the process leading to the Signatura’s decision.”
Wuerl persisted, and two years later the Vatican court reversed itself and supported the decision to remove the priest.

It was not until 1993, when they formed the Ad Hoc Committee on Sexual Abuse, that the U.S. bishops first tackled the clergy sex abuse issue as a national conference. In the years that followed, the committee developed and discussed with the bishops diocesan resources for assisting victims and families. The committee also issued guidelines for removing priests and for abuse prevention programs.
Pope John Paul II issued his first condemnation of clergy sex abuse in 1993. At the time he announced the formation of a joint study commission to address U.S. bishops’ concerns about canonical problems in dealing with priest abusers. Late in the year, a joint Vatican-U.S. bishops’ study commission issued revised guidelines for removing wayward priests. The pope approved the guidelines, on an experimental basis, in April 1994.

In 1994, according to a bishop’s spokesperson, when the committee asked dioceses to send in their existing policies, 178 of the 188 dioceses responded. Of those, 157 submitted policies, 13 said they did not have a written policy, and eight said they were working on a policy.

The Ad Hoc committee received unwanted attention in early April this year, when its head, Bishop John B. McCormack of Concord, N.H., stepped down from his post after his own handling of priests accused of sex abuse had been called into question. McCormack said his decision was not prompted by the scandal but by his desire to focus on work in New Hampshire. McCormack was replaced by Archbishop Harry J. Flynn of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

The committee’s credibility had earlier been called into question by reports that two of its members had been accused in lawsuits of helping protect priests who molested children.

McCormack was accused in Massachusetts lawsuits of knowing priests were abusing boys and failing to intervene, and of playing a role in shuffling offenders among parishes. Another committee member, Bishop John Gaydos of Jefferson City, Mo., has been accused in a suit of conspiring to cover up molestation by then-Fr. Anthony O’Connell, who resigned in February as bishop of Palm Beach, Fla., after admitting he abused a seminary student in Missouri more than 25 years ago. Gaydos has denied the allegations.

A third bishop on the ad hoc committee, Auxiliary Bishop A. James Quinn of Cleveland, suggested in a 1990 speech that church leaders hide records of abusive priests in the Vatican embassy, which has diplomatic immunity. His comments are being used in a sex abuse lawsuit that names all U.S. bishops as defendants.

Cold-blood-ed John Paul is no saint for children because he said nothing and did nothing to save and protect them for 27 years


If a reality weekly TV series were to showcase the true stories of the bestial JP2 Army - John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army of 6,500 American Catholic pedophile priests (Vatican statistics), the Kardashans, Big Brother, Survivor, NCIS and other TV crime series would pale in comparison and lose their ratings.  Children would watch the JP2 Army series in order to know the tricks of the trade of holy pedophiles whom they are forced to call “Father” – aside from their own real hardworking biological father.   At 52 weeks in a year, it would take 125 years – over one and a quarter century to cover the 6,500 Roman Catholic JP2 bestial priests’ stories in the USA alone.  There are an estimated 100,000 victims in the USA – and they would take another 1,923 years to depict.   That’s almost two millenniums – as old as the Roman Catholic Church itself today! 

But as one Boston pedophile priest confessed in public that he had 200 children victims in his decades as a priest – the 6,500 American pedophile priests potentially have 1,300,000 (1.3 million) victims.  To portray these as a TV series of true Vatican crimes – would take 25,000 years – or all generations to come – or UNTIL THE END OF TIME!  That’s not even counting the repetitive bestial pedophile acts a priest did on one same child in the course of days, weeks and years. A one day story could easily be turned into a two hour movie just like the movie Spotlight”. As Poynter points out, the movie’s action was designed within a frame that ended on Jan. 6, 2002, the day the first Globe story on priest sexual abuse appeared.

Then add the  true stories of popes, cardinals and bishops who covered-up and aided and abetted the JP2 Army worldwide – those would make also additional TV series.  Add the two week long UN investigation and condemnation on the Vatican -- UN condemns Vatican for crimes against children.  Add SNAP’s journeys to the UN and The Hague to submit depositions against  Benedict XVI-RATzinger crimes against humanity,  Add also those other numerous heinous pedophile priests in Europe, Australia, Philippines and Dominican Republic and other undiscovered JP2 Army in other parts of the hemispheres.  John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army is named aptly the globetrotting pope who reigned the longest but said nothing and did nothing to save and protect children. It would take eternity or UNTIL THE END OF TIME to show the bestial reality of the JP2 Army and SNAP, the UN, the Pope Crimes and Vatican Evils against humanity’s children for half-the-20th century mostly under the papacy of Saint John Paul II and his evil Achilles Heels! 

The John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army surpass King Herod Army, the Blood of Abel, and Sodom and Gomorrah and all stories in the Bible because the Vatican crimes against humanity’s children are of Biblical Proportions, and like the Blood of Abel, they are crying out to heaven for vengeance and divine justice… because Pope Francis is a pathological liar and Vatican justice is a farce!  Read our article, Vatican Holy Shit!

Partnership:  Pope Francis and “Spotlight” aka Michael Keaton movie

When Pope Francis delivered his first homily in the USA before 300 bishops in Washington DC, he praised the bishops for their “courage” in their “moments of difficulty” – and he never uttered the word “sexual abuse on children by pedophile priests”.   That was because the Vatican Opus Dei Beast PR Deceits Team – has entrusted that ugly Vatican crimes reality – to the “Spotlight” movie to tackle – as it was produced to make idiots Americans Catholics feel-good about those bestial priests via Hollywood- A-listers, now referred to as “the Michael Keaton movie”.   As Poynter points out, “The film ends by scrolling lists of U.S. and global cities where Church scandals spread after the Globe had broken its news.”  So there was no need for Pope Francis to utter that reality of heinous Catholic pedophile priests that covered the USA and the planet – because if it came from his mouth, it would be also an admission of papal involvement and guilt.   He left those poisonous words for Hollywood actors he paid tens of millions of dollars to “utter” because they can easily deceive and make idiots American Catholics and the world to feel good about Vatican crimes – via typical Hollywood fashion of make-believe drama and suspense. 

The ultimate purpose of Spotlight is to make viewers feel-good about the “Vatican culture of sexual abuse” – as delicious as the pop corn and soda they gulp down.  Hollywood and the Vatican are twin cities that “lie for a living”.  Pope Francis is the greatest Jesuit Master of Deceits – with the Jesuits all are ‘Masters of Deceits for half a millennium as they built the Vatican Mammon Evil Beast.  Read our related article, WTF. Pope Francis lauds bishops, did not utter word “sexual abuse” those bishops covered-up for decades – akin to John Paul II laud on Cardinal Bernard Law

SNAP – Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests has represented American victims of Vatican crimes that spanned half the century – yet Pope Francis strategically ignored them and instead chose to meet with victims not abused by priests – to segue attention from the American and global crimes of his own church.  Pope Francis met with victims NOT abused by priests, read our article -- Pope Francis meets 9/11 victims’ families but ignores SNAP, insults 100,000 Catholic victims of Vatican crimes by John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army–JP2Army  

Pope Francis further covered-up the Vatican Catholic pedophile priests’ crimes --- during his USA visit --- because he ignored completely SNAP- Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests who have represented for more than 25 years Catholic 100,000 children victims.  He used the same strategy of all cardinals and bishops who kept denying and denying of any personal knowledge – until they were forced by secular courts to admit and pay victims in compensation.

As we have written before, the Vatican and Hollywood are twin cities that “lie for a living” and we are seeing here how Pope Francis the greatest Jesuit Master of Deceits It’s incredible how the Opus Dei Beast PR Deceits Team is masterminding the Pope Francis fairy-tale and the John Paul II saint fantasy – that only a divine intervention can stop the Roman Catholic charade.

The first line of Pope Francis’ speech began with one of the biggest pathological lies concocted by the Vatican Opus Dei Beast PR Dei Deceits Team.  Francis said, “I am most grateful for your invitation to address this Joint Session of Congress”.  The fact is this invitation was orchestrated by the Vatican and it was easy to get since Opus Dei already control many politicians in congress and Supreme Court judges.   

There’s a big difference when one says, “I was invited to the party” versus “I made them invite me…to the party”.  It was also an Opus Dei Beast PR plan that three former US envoys to the Vatican announced they are supporting Jeb Bush soon as Pope Francis landed in Washington, D.C.  American, beware of Jeb Bush because the Bush family is the curse of America.  Read our related article, John Paul II’s Achilles Heels.

Climate change

Pope Francis had to pick on a topic to keep his relevance in the world stage.  With the Catholic exodus of hundreds of millions abandoning the Catholic church especially in Europe and now in North America, he had to latch on and piggy back ride on climate change and the issue on the environment to keep his voice relevant.  The Vatican Titanic is sunken deep in the ocean of moral bankruptcy so he had to latch on other issues and by doing that he is STEALING the hard work of scientists and environmentalists.  Everything Pope Francis do is theft, read more below.

 Pope Francis has nothing in common with St. Francis who was not a priest.  St. Francis wrote his famous canticle Brother Sun, Sister Moon, and he knew that God created these heavenly bodies and there was no way as a mortal frail man he could create God’s flesh in the Eucharist.

St. Francis was thin – lived in a small cave – anyone who has visited Assisi could see his poverty.  Versus the hypocrisy of Pope Francis in the wealthiest Vatican palace that rivals all monarchs in Europe.

Pope’s Blind Spots: * Militarism * Child Sex Abuse

COLMAN McCARTHY, cmccarthy at
A former Washington Post columnist, McCarthy is founder and director of the Center for Teaching Peace in Washington, D.C., and the author of the book I’d Rather Teach Peace. He recently wrote the piece “Francis Needs to go Beyond his Play-it-Safe Verbiage” for the National Catholic Reporter. 
McCarthy said today about Pope Francis’ speech before Congress: “I thought it over emphasized meaningless pieties.” While the speech referred to stopping the arms trade, McCarthy noted “it didn’t refer to the militarism of U.S. government itself. It didn’t talk about lowering the military budget. He quoted from [Martin Luther] King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, but not King’s calling the U.S. government ‘the greatest purveyor of violence‘ — as King did. He mentioned Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton, but they too spoke out against U.S. militarism. He should have quoted Dorothy Day and her commitment to pacifism.” See McCarthy’s piece on Dorothy Day in the Washington Post from 1980 just after her death.

None.” Blaine said today: “If you’re a woman, you can’t be a priest, if you’re married, you can’t be a priest, but if you’ve raped children, you can still be a priest.” The group has put out 20 steps the pope could take on the child sex abuse scandal.” Blaine appeared in The Real News segment yesterday “The Pope is Dishonest About Zero Tolerance for Child Sex Abuse.”

aka Opus Dei Beast that exploits the poor. 

The Vatican owns Switzerland and the secret Vatican Swiss Banks are run-only by Swiss Guard Army graduates and alumni.

Pope Francis is the most evil pope in the history of Catholicism because his crimes affect the entire globe and many nations and billions of poor people which cause the violence against children and women all as a result of the Vatican-imposed abject poverty. 

Everything Pope Francis and the Vatican  do is theft

1) The Eucharist is theft of God’s power to create.  Popes and priests cannot clone and ant or a dog or a star and therefore they cannot clone Christ either. 

2)  Popes and priests steal men’s dignity as “fathers”, they should not be called “fathers” at all because they do nothing for the welfare of children which those biological and adoptive fathers do with their daily toil and paycheck.

7)  Pope Francis steals the dignity of Christ because he is the Pretender and Impostor of Christ, the worst pathological liar using Christ’s name and the Bible to cover-up the thefts and loot of secret Vatican Swiss Banks. 

The Opus Dei PR Deceits Team is using Pope Francis to make the Vatican Bank/IOR look squeaky clean by simply closing down thousands of accounts of corrupt people – who can easily fly to Switzerland anyway to find their Vatican Bank accounts over there.

 The Vatican Bank’s money laundering was originally initiated by President Obama in 2010, and so it took four years for the Opus Dei Beast PR Deceits Team to figure out what to do – especially when the Jesuit pope came in – the Jesuits are Masters of Deceits for 500 years at the Vatican – and so all hell broke loose. So what if it has signed an agreement to exchange information with the US Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). 

 Pope Francis has committed the biggest heist in the history of mankind – by transferring swiftly 19,000 accounts of the Vatican Bank to secret Vatican Swiss Banks – because he wants to make the Vatican Bank smaller and “in accordance to international standards (since it was so corrupt with daily money laundering – as exemplified by the Vatican Bank accountant caught money laundering 20 million Euros in a small plane from Switzerland to Italy (read here) the 1.2 billion Catholics and the world are fooled again  big time. 

Christ wants to be severed from Pope Francis and the Vatican and all Catholic churches worldwide and He’ll have to do something about it because the crimes of the Vatican surpass those of Sodom and Gomorrah and the Tower of Babylon.

Eucharist Mythology
Pope Francis (cardinals, bishops, priests) – by the power of his papal mouth in a few seconds – of reciting Roman Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation (deceit) script – cannot instantly clone the real flesh-and-blood of Jesus Christ – because His mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, had to carry 9 months in her God-designed female womb – and then give birth (painfully) like all other women.  Pope Francis and priests have no wombs to reproduce a child and their mouths cannot reproduce the flesh of Christ either.  The little white host in the Eucharist is the biggest lie of Satan since the Garden of Eden where God forbade that mankind eat of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil that was exclusively for God.  The Eucharist makes man even greater than God because he can reproduce His flesh and blood -- and it is the bait to trap idiots especially stupid Americans Catholics to worship the Vatican Mammon Evil Beast guarded by Swiss Guard Army in Vatican Swiss Banks that hoard the ill-gotten wealth of despots, American imperialists, European imperialists, corrupt government officials, war lords, drug lords, name it, they have it.  The Vatican is the most evil power on the planet that breeds corruptions among government officials, which breed wars, violence against the poor, women and children. Pope Francis is the greatest thief in mankind’s history and the greatest Jesuit Master of Deceits and he is only headed to the lake of fire where he will join his real father of lies who came to kill, steal and destroy.  Pope Francis is the Devil turned into an Angel Pope-in-white in the Vatican Circus of lies, deceptions and corruptions worldwide.

Vatican Titanic is sunken deep in the ocean of moral bankruptcy

There are several signs the Vatican Titanic is sunken deep in the ocean of moral bankruptcy: 1) the closure and sale of hundreds of Catholic churches in Europe, Canada, USA, and South America. 2) The exodus of hundreds of millions of baptized Roman Catholics into Pentecostals, Evangelicals and Born-Again churches. 3) The formal de-baptism of Catholics such as those record-high quarter million Germans last year. 4) The permanent end or extinction of religious congregations and seminaries due to lack of vocations.  5) When its religious members have to speak to one another via secular lawyers and in the civil court of law – which means, their professed vows of obedience to the Vatican Magisterium is no longer operable-  that they have to go totally “outside the church” to communicate with each other to establish their legal rights and identity. 6) When all the Vatican Pied Pipers are spreading are pathological lies about Pope Francis and the Opus Dei Beast PR Deceits Team – World Domination agenda.  7)  When the Vatican continue to exist as a country and  Switzerland continue to be a “neutral country” – since they are twin cities that control the Vatican Swiss Banks  -- run by Swiss Guard Army alumni only – and they are the safest haven for despots’ and American Imperialists and European imperialists’’ loots in Africa, Philippines, and all poor nations.

After Joseph Ratzinger publicly announced his plans to retire, quite a few people who are aware of this website or the @Fire_the_PopeTwitter account remarked how I got my wish or, jokingly, how my website may have led to the first resignation of a pope in 600 years.

Yes, I’ve had Ratzinger’s picture prominently displayed on this site and, given his long record both as the pope and as the one person responsible for handling all sex-crime cases in the Church, I strongly believed him to be incompetent at best.

However, FireThePope doesn’t just mean fire Joseph Ratzinger. FireThePope isn’t a cause to bring down one man. FireThePope is an effort to expose the entire Roman Catholic Church, as is, as fraudulent and there is no better way to do that than to start at the top.

St. Peter Square from above
Not your Father’s  church.

The Roman Catholic Church sets itself apart from all other religions, including Christian denominations, by claiming its head, the pope, is the successor of Peter and that Jesus anointed Peter to be the head of his church. The Church points to Matthew 16:13-20 to support this claim. Catholics conclude the Roman Catholic Church is the “one true church” of Jesus Christ and all other Protestant or non-Roman orthodox churches are inferior to it.

Roman Catholics call their church “the bride of Christ” and “Holy Mother Church”. These nicknames market the idea that Roman Catholicism dates back to the days of Jesus Christ and it – or “She”, as they say – is the very foundation of Christianity and all other religions are mere offshoots or sequels to Roman Catholicism.

Ultimately, Roman Catholicism rests solely on the supremacy of Peter and the apostles. Without the supremacy of Peter, there would be no pope. Without the supremacy of the apostles, there would be no priesthood as the Roman Church defines it. Without the superhuman powers of Catholic priests, bye-bye sacraments, indulgences, and the entire institution.

Today, let’s focus on the papacy. Following are ten reasons why there should never be another pope and, if there is, he should be completely ignored by the Catholic laity, the media, politicians, and the public at large.

Because the Vatican bases its very existence on a scene from the New Testament, it must also accept other verses of the NT in order to be consistent. Either the NT should be accepted as true, non-fictional accounts or not. Either those accounts must be taken literally or not. But, one cannot say this is a source of truth, inspired by the Holy Spirit and then pick and choose which passages the Church wants to follow or not.

1. The church of Jesus Christ in the bible was not a physical empire. Matthew 24:1-2 - ”Jesus left the temple precincts then, and his disciples came up and pointed out to him the buildings of the temple area. His comment was: ‘Do you see all these buildings? I assure you, not one stone will be left on another – it will all be torn down.’” 1 Corinthians 3:16 – “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the spirit of God dwells in you?” Also, Peter 2:5-9 – “Be yourselves as living stones built into a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” Jesus preached in homes and on hillsides, not in buildings. He only went in to temples to draw people out of them or to scold the church leaders. The word catholic, found in the bible with a lower-case c, means universal. In the first century, the wordchurch (also lower-case c) meant a society of men, women, and children who are spiritually – not necessarily physically – united to serve God. According to the NT, Jesus established the catholic church – a universal society of believers who would offer spiritualsacrifices. I explain below who really instituted the Roman Catholic Church, which requires material (pagan) sacrifices.

2. The church of Jesus Christ was not built upon one man. The idea that the church of Jesus was built upon one man is preposterous. Yet, that is what the Roman Church claims. Its only foundation is the notion that Peter was chosen by Jesus to be the first pope and that all popes are Peter’s successors, chosen by the Holy Spirit and infallible in all of their declarations. Roman Catholicism teaches that the pope, acting on behalf of the Church (notice the capital C indicating the Corporation) has the power and a duty to act as a mediator between the Creator and his creatures. It has been a long-held tradition that the Vatican, the Magisterium, and the clergy would interpret the bible for the laity. However, 1 Corinthians 3:11 reads, “For other foundation no one can lay, but that which has been laid, which is Jesus Christ”. According to scripture, Jesus, not Peter, is the foundation of the Christian church. Jesus is also the sole mediator, so says 1 Timothy 2:5: ”And the truth is this: ‘God is one. One also is the mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, and who gave himself ransom for all.” According to the New Testament where Catholics turn to justify the existence of their Church, there is only one mediator between God and the people and that is Jesus Christ, not Peter and not Joseph Ratzinger.

3. The church of Jesus Christ in the bible did not have a pope.The word pope is not in the bible, where the Roman Church points to as justification for itself. The early church described in the New Testament speaks of bishops who were overseers or local supervisors of the effort to spread Christianity. They were not rulers over the people. No one bishop had authority over any other. No one bishop was the head of the effort. There was a bishop in many major cities, including one in Rome. It so happened that certain Roman emperors (namely Constantine and Charlemagne) elevated the position and authority of the bishop of Rome, specifically, because they had the power to do so and because it was convenient as Rome was the seat of power. Emperors appointed bishops and abbots and usually appointed members of aristocratic families. The idea of a pope – one bishop over all others – was a corrupt power grab by murderous dictators and had nothing to do with Jesus Christ or anything in the bible.

4. The Peter of the throne was not the apostle but an impostor. Remember, the apostle Peter originally went by the name of Simon. Then, he was referred to as Simon Peter. Jesus named him Peter at the rock because the name Peter – or Petros (Greek) means rock. This Peter was from Cyprus, according to the bible. But, there is another Simon in the bible, this one from Samaria and he was a troublemaker. Locals called him Simon the

Magician. He claimed to be able to do magic tricks and held The Circus of Nero in Vaticanus Hill. Simon Magnus claimed he was God (hence, the magic) and he became a nemesis, a rival, and a thorn in the side of the apostle Peter. There was such trouble between the two that Emperor Nero set up a contest to settle their differences. Simon Magnus was killed after being thrown from his chariot and so Nero, who had favored him, had Peter arrested and thrown in jail. If there was a pope on a throne in the days of the early church, it was not Peter the Apostle but Simon the Magician. Simon sat on a throne; Peter never did. Simon claimed to be God; Peter never did. Simon claimed to have supernatural powers; Peter never did. Simon Magnus even started going by the name Peter in order to confuse people. They both had the same name, they both died in the same year – 67 A.D., and they both had spent time in Rome. The proof that the Simon of Samaria, not Cyprus, sat on the throne in Rome is the documentation that Magnus stayed in Rome for many years at a time while the apostle came and went quite often.

5. The apostle Peter never considered himself God or Jesus Christ. Again, the idea of the papacy rests on the supremacy of Peter. The Roman Church claims the pope is “Christ’s (sole) representative on earth”. The Peter whom the popes are supposed to have succeeded was married with at least one child – a daughter. He never sat on a throne and he never claimed to have magic powers or to be infallible. He never claimed to be better or more important than the other apostles or early leaders of the Christian church. He never dressed in fancy clothes, he never wore a ring to be kissed, and he never insisted on the red carpet treatment. Acts 10:25-27: “As Peter entered, Cornelius went to meet him, dropped to his knees before him and bowed low. Peter said, ‘Get up! I am only a man myself.’” When Nero sentenced Peter to death by crucifixion, Peter insisted on hanging on the cross upside down because he was unworthy to die as Jesus died. Peter the apostle, claimed by the Church as the first pope was never a pope and his philosophy and practices, according to the New Testament, were a far contrast to those of the papacy no matter who is holding the title.
6. The Roman Catholic Church was not established until the 4th Century. Roman Catholics claim Peter of the bible was the first pope and that there is an unbroken line of popes stretching from biblical times to present-day. This claim is nothing but a re-writing of history. The Church needs that lineage in order to justify itself and the papacy yet it does not have the facts on its side so they have to create a new reality. What the Church

has done is go back and list anyone who was a bishop of Rome as a pope. The actual papacy didn’t begin until the Roman Catholic Church began and that wasn’t until the 4th Century with Pope Constantine I – the emperor – who ruled from the “chair of St. Peter” from 306-337. Constantine came to the rescue of Christians who were being persecuted by Emperor Diocletian. It’s not that he was overcome by compassion but realized he could take political advantage from the growing number of Christians. This ties the pagan Roman Empire to the Catholic Church whose members also worship objects and offer material sacrifices.

7. The papacy was on life support as recently as 1870. In the mid-19th Century, there was an effort to unify Italy which was split in two by the Papal States governed by the pope, then Pope Pius IX (the one who dreamed up Immaculate Conception). Victor Emmanuel II, the new King of Italy, had seized all of the Church-controlled territory except a small segment of Rome. Napoleon, who had previously been an ally of Emmanuel, protected the pope and by having some of his troops stand guard at the Vatican. When the Franco-Prussia War intensified, Napoleon pulled his troops out of Rome, leaving the pope defenseless. The Italian troops moved in and the pope lost all of his temporal (civil) power minus rule over the tiny territory of the Vatican. Emmanuel allowed the pope to keep the Vatican and freed him from Italian rule but the pope was defiant. Pius IX refused to recognize Emmanuel’s new kingdom and he voluntarily kept himself a prisoner of the Vatican. He cried anti-Catholic bias until support and donations poured in for him, including from Catholics in America. The empire of the Roman Church was all but lost in 1870. It took more deception to keep it alive.

8. The papacy was corruptly propped back up by a fascist dictator. In the 1920′s, the Italian government wished to settle its differences with the Church. At the time, the Prime Minister of Italy was Benito Mussolini.

Mussolini signs Lateran Pacts
A Dictator legitimizes the Roman Catholic Church.

He conspired with the Vatican to shut out populist factions in the country in order to amass more power and control for himself. The Vatican silenced priests who favored a more democratic government. In return, Mussolini gifted the Church by officially recognizing the Vatican as an independent and sovereign city-state. Within the borders of Italy, popes would receive diplomatic immunity and the Church would receive financial reparations for its loss of the Papal States. Also, Roman Catholicism would be the one state religion in Italy. These agreements were called the Lateran Pacts and they are what revived the much weakened papacy. Mussolini would go on to become one of history’s most brutal dictators. Today, Vatican City, the whole 0.2 square miles of it, is recognized by the United Nations as a sovereign city-state of which the pope is head.
9. The pope is an absolute monarch at a time when most educated and reasonable human beings believe in freedom, democracy, and accountability. In 2011, the world witnessed what is now referred to as The Arab Spring. Ordinary people protested – many to their deaths – for freedom, respect, and democratic elections. Many citizens of some nations in the Middle East had been oppressed for generations and they finally decided it was time to take a stand against tyranny. It has been said there is a natural hunger to live freely, no matter what part of the world one lives. The pope is an absolute monarch, only one of a few that still exist and certainly the most powerful. As such, and because he enjoys diplomatic immunity both in Italy and out, he is accountable to no one. The pope is elected but not by the people he represents as in a democracy. He is elected by the same men whom he appointed to the College of Cardinals. Once a pope takes office, he is unaccountable to anyone inside the Church or out. This type of power is contrary to what the New Testament described when Jesus turned tables on the clergy. The pope, like Simon Magnus, claims to be God. Only someone with a God-complex would claim to be above the law and every other human being.

10. The papacy is not inspired by the Holy Spirit. If anything, it would be inspired by the spirit of Lucifer. As construction workers ready the Vatican chimney for the upcoming puffs of white smoke or black,
"St Peter's chair"
The throne of Simon Magnus

rational human beings are expected to believe that the Holy Spirit is guiding the process of the papal conclave. When cardinals vote a certain way, we are told, it was because the Holy Spirit told them to. It’s time for a reality check. Many of the men who will be voting – or running – for the next pope have blood on their hands – blood ofchildren. Yet, we are supposed to believe they have an inside track to the Holy Spirit. From the beginning of the Roman Catholic Church, throughout its history, and including today, Roman Catholicism has been a corrupt empire disguised as a Christian religion. I’ve heard many people credit it merely because “it has been around for 2,000 years”. It hasn’t been around that long and does it matter that it has only survived as long has it has because it has succeeded in fooling gullible people? Does it matter that it has grown as large as it has because many of its converts joined only under the threat of death? Does it matter than the majority of Catholics were entered into the Church before the age of reason? Catholics are quick to remind us of “all the good the Church does”. There isn’t a tyrant in history that couldn’t claim the same. Evil almost always presents itself in disguise – as something good. When deception is the foundation of an institution, no amount of superficial acts that come out of it can make it good. Deeds and institutions can only be good if they are based in truth. Like it or not, the spirit that is guiding the Roman Catholic Church isn’t holy, it is evil. And the only way to kill a serpent is by chopping off its head.

The Dark Side of the Papacy: Pope Crimes Revealed

The world is discovering the truth about the global organization known as the "Catholic Church": it is the mother of all abominations on Earth, the root cause of all world suffering, poverty, crimes. With their false appearance of 'mercy' and 'holiness' they have managed to fool the masses into believing they are representatives of  Christ, presenting the world with an expired doctrine that brings death. A statistical report shows proof of over 10 million crimes committed by priests and nuns in the nations, since these evil and perverse men (and women) proclaim "celibacy" which is a doctrine of demons that has led to sexual abuse of thousands of innocent children and women around the world. Pope Francis and the previous Pope "Benedict XVI" aren't the only corrupt and evil "popes"...the Vatican has a long track record of criminal popes, starting with the first one - Peter. For this purpose, we highlight a book that sheds light into the dark side of the Papacy, so that you can learn the facts:

George Bush 41 (Reagan's worst mistake) breaks down in another of his emotional blathers as he heaps praise on his dearest son. Apparently what got dad all in a teary-eyed meltodown was not the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians that died in Bush 43's little war, or the trillions of dollarsthat Bush 43 has wasted on his war, but the memory of how good old Jeb accepted his defeat for Florida governor in 1994. His crackup came as he said "the true measure of a man is how you handle victory and defeat." Oh, it makes me feel like crying...


George W. Bush for his sham Iraq War -- and the Vatican Opus Dei Beast PR Deceits Team -- use Hitler's propaganda techniques 

Hitler could be said to be the originator of Alinsky's famous Rule 13: 'Pick the target, freeze the target, personalize it and polarize it.'  
Hitler was one of the first modern politicians to recognize how important media and messaging were to popularizing progressive policies:

"The art of propaganda consists precisely in being able to awaken the imagination of the public through an appeal to their feelings, in finding the appropriate psychological form that will arrest the attention and appeal to the hearts of the national masses." [...]

"This sentiment, however, is not complex, but simple and consistent. It is not highly differentiated, but has only the negative and positive notions of love and hatred, right and wrong, truth and falsehood."

"Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favourable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favourable to its own side. (...) The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward. (...) Every change that is made in the subject of a propagandist message must always emphasize the same conclusion. The leading slogan must of course be illustrated in many ways and from several angles, but in the end one must always return to the assertion of the same formula." 

UN condemns Vatican for crimes against children.. HOORAH. 10 Reasons to abolish the papacy and why there should never be another pope


PopeCrimes& Vatican Evils.

December 10, 2014 International Human Rights Day

A picture speaks a thousand words. Here are images of the 2 evil Achilles Heels of John Paul II and George W. Bush, two contemporaries in the 21stcentury who covered-up – through religion – their own worst crimes against children and youth of America and the whole world.

The 2 Evil Achilles Heels of Satanas Saint John Paul II are Cardinal Bernard Law and priest Marcial Maciel, the serial pedophile, pederast, adulterous priest and poster boy of the JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army. Read the related links below for further explanations.

George W. Bush’s evil Achilles Heels are the Iraq War and the CIA Torture (newly revealed documents) which he condoned and ordered - in secret. John Paul II and George W. Bush were the epitome of covert operations that destroyed the lives of incalculable thousands of children (mostly boys) and young people (mostly young men). While John Paul II now sits in the highest altars of sainthood in all Catholic churches, and George W. Bush now sits painting portraits of past US presidents – meanwhile, thousands of young soldiers sit maimed and lamed from Bush’s Iraq War, and thousands of children are fatherless from lost young fathers who were soldiers in Bush’s (delusion) “War on Terror”, and countless children suffer a ‘living hell’ from the bestial JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army.

US Wars in Afghanistan, Iraq to Cost $6 trillion -- thanks to George W. Bush - supported by the Vatican Catholic Bishops

Bush Family curse of American

This article was originally posted on GR on September 20, 2013

The decade-long American wars in Afghanistan and Iraq would end up costing as much as $6 trillion, the equivalent of $75,000 for every American household, calculates the prestigious Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.  
Remember, when President George Bush’s National Economic Council Director, Lawrence Lindsey, had told the country’s largest newspaper “The Wall Street Journal” that the war would cost between $100 billion and $200 billion, he had found himself under intense fire from his colleagues in the administration who claimed that this was a gross overestimation.
Consequently, Lawrence Lindsey was forced to resign. It is also imperative to recall that the Bush administration had claimed at the very outset that the Iraq war would finance itself out of Iraqi oil revenues, but Washington DC had instead ended up borrowing some $2 trillion to finance the two wars, the bulk of it from foreign lenders. 
According to the Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government 2013 report, this accounted for roughly 20 per cent of the total amount added to the US national debt between 2001 and 2012. 
According to the report, the US “has already paid $260 billion in interest on the war debt,” and future interest payments would amount to trillions of dollars. This Harvard University report has also been carried on its website by the Centre for Research on Globalisation, which is a widely-quoted Montreal-based independent research and media organisation.
In its report under review, the 377-year old Harvard University has viewed that these afore-mentioned wars had not only left the United States heavily indebted, but would also have a profound impact on the federal government’s fiscal and budgetary crises over a protracted period. 
The report has attributed the largest share of the trillions of dollars in continuing costs to care and compensation for hundreds of thousands of troops left physically and psychologically damaged by the two wars being discussed here. 
The report states: “The Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, taken together, will be the most expensive wars in US history—totaling somewhere between $4 trillion and $6 trillion. This includes long-term medical care and disability compensation for service members, veterans and families, military replenishment and social and economic costs. The largest portion of that bill is yet to be paid.” 
It asserts: “Another major share of the long-term costs of the wars comes from paying off trillions of dollars in debt incurred as the US government failed to include their cost in annual budgets and simultaneously implemented sweeping tax cuts for the rich. In addition, huge expenditures are being made to replace military equipment used in the two wars. The report also cites improvements in military pay and benefits made in 2004 to counter declining recruitment rates as casualties rose in the Iraq war.” 
The authors of this report have warned that the legacy of decisions taken during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars would dominate future federal budgets for decades to come.
According to the Harvard University report, some 1.56 million US troops—56 per cent of all Afghanistan and Iraq veterans—were receiving medical treatment at Veterans Administration facilities and would be granted benefits for the rest of their lives.
It reveals: 
“One out of every two veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan has already applied for permanent disability benefits. The official figure of 50,000 American troops “wounded in action” vastly underestimates the real human costs of the two US wars. One-third of returning veterans are being diagnosed with mental health issues—suffering from anxiety, depression, and/or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).” 
The report notes that in addition, over a quarter of a million troops have suffered traumatic brain injuries (TBI), which, in many cases, were combined with PTSD, posing greater problems in treatment and recovery. 
“Constituting a particularly grim facet of this mental health crisis is the doubling of the suicide rate for US Army personnel, with many who attempted suicide suffering serious injuries,” opine the report authors. 
It maintains: 
“Overall, the Veterans Administration’s budget has more than doubled over the past decade, from $61.4 billion in 2001 to $140.3 billion in 2013. As a share of the total US budget it has grown from 2.5 percent to 3.5 percent over the same period. Soaring medical costs for veterans is attributable to several factors. Among them is that, thanks to advancements in medical technology and rapid treatment, soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan have survived wounds that would have cost their lives in earlier conflicts.”
The Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government report has estimated: “While the US government has already spent $134 billion on medical care and disability benefits for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, this figure will climb by an additional $836 billion over the coming decades.”
It notes that the largest expenditures on health care for World War II veterans took place in the 1980s, roughly four decades after the war, and that spending on medical care and disability payments for Vietnam War veterans was still on the rise.
Here follows the description:
“The most common medical problems suffered by troops returning from the two wars include: diseases of the musculoskeletal system (principally joint and back disorders); mental health disorders; central nervous system and endocrine system disorders; as well as respiratory, digestive, skin and hearing disorders. Overall, some 29 per cent of these troops have been diagnosed with PTSD.”
The report goes on to argue:
“Among the most severely wounded are 6,476 soldiers and Marines who have suffered “severe penetrating brain injury,” and another 1,715 who have had one or more limbs amputated. Over 30,000 veterans are listed as suffering 100 percent service-related disabilities, while another 145,000 are listed as 70 to 90 percent disabled.”
It reads:
“The worst of these casualties have taken place under the Obama administration as a result of the so-called surge that the Democratic president ordered in Afghanistan.”
It mentions that the Walter Reed Medical Centre, US Army’s flagship hospital at Washington DC, was treating hundreds of recent amputees and severe casualties, adding that this facility had received 100 amputees for treatment during 2010; 170 amputees in 2011; and 107 amputees in 2012. 
The report has also stated that the US Marines have suffered an especially high toll.
The report points out: 
“Massive direct spending on the two imperialist interventions continues. With over 60,000 US troops remain in Afghanistan, it is estimated that the cost of deploying one American soldier for one year in this war amounts to $1 million. These troops continue suffering casualties—including in so-called “green on blue” attacks by Afghan security forces on their ostensible allies. As they are brought home, they will further drive up the costs of medical care and disability compensation. The US is maintaining a vast diplomatic presence in Iraq, including at least 10,000 private contractors providing support in security, IT, logistics, engineering and other occupations; as well as logistics support and payments for leased facilities in Kuwait.” 
In its conclusion, the report not only seeks to dispel illusions that ending full-scale wars in Iraq and Afghanistan would produce any kind of “peace dividend” that could help ameliorate conditions of poverty, unemployment and declining living standards for working people in the US itself, but makes it clear that the legacy of decisions made during the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts would impose significant long-term costs on the federal government for many years to come.

    18 mars 2013 - In case you were wondering, the price tag for the war inIraq could eventually top $6 trillion. Tuesday marks the 10th anniversary of the U.S. ...
  3. The Iraq war has cost the U.S. more than $2 trillion so far and with interest could swell to more than $6 trillion, according to a study released Thursday.
    The study, part of the Costs of War Project by the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University, drew from actual expenditures from the U.S. Treasury and future commitments.
    That $2 trillion figure comes from $1.7 trillion in war expenses and an additional $490 billion in benefits owed to war veterans.
    An extra $4 trillion factors in to pay interest through 2053. The studynotes that because the Iraq War appropriations "were not funded with new taxes, but by borrowing, it is important to keep in mind the interest costs already paid, and future interest costs."
    The study raises the total cost of the Iraq war from the $1.7 trillion cost (without interest) estimated in a 2011 Watson Institute report.
    The new study concluded that both the war and the subsequent $212 billion reconstruction effort were failures as the war "reinvigorated radical Islamist militants in the region, set back women's rights, and weakened an already precarious health care system" while "most of [the reconstruction] money was spent on security or lost to waste and fraud," according to Daniel Trotta of Reuters reports.
    There are so many examples of waste and financial mismanagement in the war.
    For example, when the U.S. invaded Iraq on March 19, 2003, the country's government owed Washington approximately $4 billion dollars— partially leftover from America's "loans" during the Iran-Iraq War.
    The debt was forgiven post-"liberation," part of a concerted push of then-governor of the war Paul Bremer. He argued it would help "boost" the fledgling free market.
    Later, American spending topped $12 billion a month and private contracting companies grew exponentially, arguably while doing shoddy work both in combat and in services and construction.
    The prevailing claim is that use of private contractors saved on military salary and benefits — a claim which casts the half a billion in benefits owed to Iraq War veterans in a more defining light.
    Some of the war's critics had argued the war said it was about freeing up Saddam's oil, which had been nationalized under the Ba'ath Party. However, when oil rights were awarded (often to the lamentations of local people), most seemed to go to foreign non-U.S. entities.
    Those companies ended up contracting Halliburton, an oilfield services company, for the lion's share of the oil field development. Halliburton,until 2007, owned a considerable stake of Kellog Brown and Root, one of the major contractors in Iraq allegedly responsible for misbehavior, abuse of funds, and less than adequate project completion.
    In October an audit revealed that the U.S. owes Iraq $7 billion because of fraud, part of which came from U.S. Army diplomats losing gas receipts totaling to $1 billion.
    The war's direct death toll is estimated to be more than 189,000, including at least 134,000 Iraqi civilians (some from chemical weapons). The authors of this study note that indirect deaths — due to war related hardship — may total "hundreds of thousands more than this estimate."
    The obscene flow of money, violence, and consequent sectarian strife are still common in the country. Seventeen people were killed today in a Baghdad bombing, just five days short of the decade anniversary of the invasion.

    Man Who Offered Evidence That Started The Iraq War Says It Was All One Big Lie

    The man who provided the WMD intelligence that became the basis for starting the Iraq War has confirmed his lies in an interview with BBC, as reported by Jonathan Owen at The Independent.
    Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, otherwise known as "Curveball," is the Iraqi chemical engineer and defector who invented claims about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction.
    When seeking political asylum in Germany in 1999, Curveball claimed to have supervised the building of a mobile biological laboratory.
    BBC also reported that U.S. officials then doctored Curveball's drawings of the laboratory to make them seem more legitimate. U.S. Secretary of State at the time, Colin Powell, relayed the fabrications as facts based on solid intelligence at the U.N. Security Council in February 2003 to justify the invasion of Iraq.
    US officials "sexed up" Mr Janabi's drawings of mobile biological weapons labs to make them more presentable, admits Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, General Powell's former chief of staff. "I brought the White House team in to do the graphics," he says, adding how "intelligence was being worked to fit around the policy."
    Mr. Janabi, who has been granted asylum in Germany, told the Guardian last year that he was exposed as a liar as early as mid-2000when his former boss at the Military Industries Commission in Iraq, Dr. Bassil Latif, told the German secret service that he strongly denied several claims made by Mr. Janabi.
    Operation Iraqi Freedom, beginning in March 2003 and officially endingDecember 2011, cost over $820 billion and claimed the lives of over100,00 civilians as well as 4,484 U.S. military personnel (with another 32,000 wounded), according to war reports analyzed by The Guardian.

  4. AMERICAN IMPERIALISM in the Philippines --

Terrorism is “Made in the USA”. 

The “Global War on Terrorism” is a Fabrication, A Big Lie

The USA has always manipulated religion 

to further 

its global hegemony on sovereign states.

Global Research, May 19, 2015

Perdana Global Peace Foundation and Global Research, 11 March 2015

Prominent academic and author Dr Michel Chossudovsky warned that the so-called war on terrorism is a front to propagate America’s global hegemony and create a New World Order.

Dr Chossudovsky said terrorism is made in the US and that terrorists are not the product of the Muslim world. 

According to him, the US global war on terrorism was used to enact anti-terrorism laws that demonised Muslims in the Western world and created Islamophobia. 

Elaborating on his argument, Dr Chossudovsky said that NATO was responsible for recruiting members of the Islamic state while Israel is funding “global jihad elements inside Syria”.

Dr Chossudovsky, who is also the founder of the Centre for Research and Globalisation, further emphasised that the global war on terrorism is a fabrication, a big lie and a crime against humanity.

Echoing Dr Chossudovsky’s arguments, Malaysia’s prominent political scientist, Islamic reformist and activist Dr Chandra Muzaffar said that the US has always manipulated religion to further its global hegemony on sovereign states. 

 ”The Globalization of War is undoubtedly one of the most important books on the contemporary global situation produced in recent years. 

In his latest masterpiece, Professor Michel Chossudovsky shows how the various conflicts we are witnessing today in Ukraine, Syria, Iraq and Palestine are in fact inter-linked and inter-locked through a single-minded agenda in pursuit of global hegemony helmed by the United States and buttressed by its allies in the West and in other regions of the world.”   Dr Chandra Muzaffar, President of the International Movement for a Just World (JUST)

The Globalization of War: America’s 

“Long War” 

against Humanity

$14.00, Save 39%

The following text is the Preface of  Michel Chossudovsky’s New Book entitled: The Globalization of War, America’s Long War against Humanity

The Book can be ordered directly from Global Research Publishers. 

America’s hegemonic project in the post 9/11 era is the “Globalization of War” whereby the U.S.-NATO military machine —coupled with covert intelligence operations, economic sanctions and the thrust of “regime change”— is deployed in all major regions of the world. The threat of pre-emptive nuclear war is also used to black-mail countries into submission.

This “Long War against Humanity” is carried out at the height of the most serious economic crisis in modern history.

It is intimately related to a process of global financial restructuring, which has resulted in the collapse of national economies and the impoverishment of large sectors of the World population.

The ultimate objective is World conquest under the cloak of “human rights” and “Western democracy”.


“Professor Michel Chossudovsky is the most realistic of all foreign policy commentators. He is a model of integrity in analysis, his book provides an honest appraisal of the extreme danger that U.S. hegemonic neoconservatism poses to life on earth.”

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury
““The Globalization of War” comprises war on two fronts: those countries that can either be “bought” or destabilized. In other cases, insurrection, riots and wars are used to solicit U.S. military intervention. Michel Chossudovsky’s book is a must read for anyone who prefers peace and hope to perpetual war, death, dislocation and despair.”
Hon. Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of National Defence
“Michel Chossudovsky describes globalization as a hegemonic weapon that empowers the financial elites and enslaves 99 percent of the world’s population.
“The Globalization of War” is diplomatic dynamite – and the fuse is burning rapidly.”
Michael Carmichael, President, the Planetary Movement

This post and blogs are inspired by St. Michael the Archangel whose flaming sword defends us from Goliath bullies of Opus Dei Beast Mafia.  St. Michael shows us - through the much canonization news coming out this week – (see compilation below) – that there are more journalists speaking out against John Paul II’s sainthood, therefore our blogs all these years have not been in vain.  Read Paris Arrow’s vision of St. Michael tying the giant millstone around John Paul II’s papal neck during his last World Youth Day in Toronto in 2002, as JP2 vehemently refuse to apologize and stop his bestial JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army, St. Michael dragged him and threw him into a raging sea of fire as stupid Catholic robots chanted “JP2, we love you”.   Beware, Francis-Maniacs for the demise of the Vatican Temple akin to the Temple of Solomon is at hand!

Pope Francis, YOU took Francis of Assisi’s name – but that’s all there is, isn’t it?  You are “in name only” – nothing else.  There’s nothing similar in essence or substance or in person between you and St. Francis - and if the Opus Dei Beast PR Deceits Team are already preparing for your sainthood like they did with documents for John Paul II’s 27 years papacy, you’re being duped big time.  You should have retired into a simple cave like poverello St. Francis of Assisi – who even refused to be a priest to clone the flesh of Christ because he knew as he wrote his canticle to the moon and stars - that no one can clone the Creator of those millions of stars in the firmament. Ever saw these images of NASA “Hand of God and Pillars of Creation”? Can you clone one of these with your papal infallible words?  You cannot clone an ant or a dog or a star and therefore you cannot clone Christ either.

St. Francis denounced the wealth of his merchant father while you embraced and vowed to the Vatican Mammon Beast worse than a Satanic Mass. St. Francis embraced a leper but you exploit the sick for your political photo-ops (and at your age caught their virus).  You hypocritically preach about the poor but you actually mock them because at the same time, behind closed doors in the Vatican art chambers, you have private audiences and photo-ops with royalties of Europe who are the 1% wealthiest of the globe, photos with despots and imperialists like President Obama who steal the wealth of Third World countries, read here how the Philippines protested Obama’s visit as he plants more bases only to serve American hegemony, read here - .  

Your photo-op with Obama actually perpetuates American Imperialism in the Philippines and in other Asian and European countries.

Why do you think your founder St. Ignatius Loyola specifically wrote in the constitution of the Jesuits that no Jesuits must accept to be a high ranking bishop or cardinal?  Jesuits were meant to be companions of Jesus, not companions of the Devil, the father of lies who came to steal, kill and destroy.  Ignatius had no choice 500 years ago to go to the world to proclaim the Good News that he needed the ships of the Vatican and the European monarchy.  But today, the Jesuits have amassed more wealth than any religious congregation, you have all the universities and schools you want or need.  There is no need to continue serving the Pope, the Father of Lies the reincarnation of the Devil!  But you set your sight on the highest throne in the Catholic Church and now the favorite words of St. Ignatius haunts you:  What does it profit a man to gain the entire world, if he suffers the loss of his soul? and you have committed the worst Pope Crimes more than all popes combined – you canonized John Paul II despite his JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army, read here Cold-blood-ed John Paul is no saint for children because he said nothing and did nothing to save and protect them for 27 years

Jesus the Jew vs. Roman Pope Francis 

Amazing how Jesus has lose his Middle East roots and Jewish identity (albeit born in Bethlehem, Palestine, a Muslim country) and lose His Biblical mission as a poor itinerant preacher for He has become Roman Catholic and hostage of the most tiny country - the Vatican City where He is also the most caged captive in gold tabernacles by tyrant evil popes – those 2,000 year old chameleons Pretenders and Impostors of Jesus and con-artists CON-Christ popes.  

From mass murderers, thieves, pedophiles, gays, adulterers like the Borgias, to John Paul II the Great Saint of Pedophiles, to Pope Francis the Worst Thief of Mankind – all popes use Christ as their mask, disguise and bait to serve one master alone –the Vatican Mammon Beast a.k.a. Opus Dei Beast ruling in the Vatican Palace - with only one goal - to preserve the Vatican Billions in secret Vatican Swiss Banks because the Vatican owns Switzerland.  Hence there’s the unique Swiss Guard Army wherein all Swiss young men are required to go and serve at the Vatican before they can become bankers, investment managers and civil officers in Switzerland because the Vatican pope is its sole monarch. Believe it or not!  

There was a former Swiss Guard who came to Boston to recruit investors as he was the CEO of an investment company, read about him in our other blog

Pope Francis, the two new pope saints John XXIII and John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and all popes definitely do not resemble one iota Jesus the Poor Carpenter of Nazareth and Poor Fisherman in the Sea of Galilee!  All movies portray Jesus as tall, lean and handsome but all popes, his assumed ‘Vicar of Christ’, have been FAT like COWS podgy, white and really hideous and repugnant they need the long white papal robe to constantly segue attention from their ugliness. Just look at the porky ass of Pope Francis that control 1.2 billion Catholics and the media world with his duck dance of wibble wobble Opus Dei Beast PR stunts.  Look at this gigantic poster in Rome of porky ass Pope Francis with the two fat popes new saints he canonized –John XXIII and John Paul II the 27 years globetrotting narcissistic pope – who said nothing and did nothing to protect children from his JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army aptly named after his 27 years globetrotting papacy - and 1.2 billion stupid Catholics now adore them as their new fat Catholic Golden Cows.

The cloning process that produced Dolly

Pope Francis and priests cannot clone the flesh of God the Son


1-MINUTE black magic of the cloning of 

Christ by sinful Vatican pope and priests


Pope Francis, all Popes, Cardinals, Bishops and 

priests cannot clone cats and dogs and therefore

 they cannot clone Christ either.  

Transubstantiation or the Mass is a recent development .St. Peter and St. Paul and the Apostles never celebrated Mass and never “transubstantiation” the bread into the flesh of Christ, what they did was to preach about Christ. The Mass was a slow development from the 12th century through various liturgical reforms until the 20th century. It was only in 1215 at the Fourth Council of the Lateran that the Mass began to take form and in 1551 at the Council of Trent that transubstantiation became what it is today.

The Vatican has come to use it as its main crux of power on earth deceiving Catholics and peoples of all faiths that only Popes and men-priests have the exclusive power to transubstantiate - or clone - God’s flesh.Because of the Mass, the Vatican has gotten away with all kinds of heinous crimes, e.g. the Crusades, the Inquisition, the burning of women and witches

 “For the sake of the Eucharist” and because of the shortage of priests, John Paul II, Cardinal Ratzinger-Benedict XVI, the Opus Dei who controls the Vatican, the Cardinals and Bishops shuffled pedophile priests from one parish to another. The rest is history: the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army committed Holy ES Eucharist-and-Sodomy of Biblical proportions see the John Paul II Millstone

In the name of Hail Mary, we dare challenge and defy the Magisterium: No words pronounced by any finite-man can create an infinite-God! No words of the Pope and priests can re-create or re-incarnate Christ’s flesh. The words of sinful popes and priests are powerless and can never create God! Only Mary the Immaculate Conception deserved to bear God in her womb. No evil pope and evil priests is worthy to touch and hold God in their evil hands. The words of popes and Cardinals, Bishops and priests are mere clashing-cymbals of St. Paul see John Paul II the Great clashing cymbal of St. PauL l

See Benedict XVI to beatify John Paul II is “brought to nothing” by St. Paul

No matter how we look at it, finite-man cannot create an infinite-God. Man can never create God’s flesh. Not in in-vitro fertilization of the scientific laboratories. Not in the sacred altars of holy Roman Catholic churches which by the way were the same pedophile altars of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army See the John Paul II Millstone

Rome, call us heretics and we don’t care because in Boston and in America, we have freedom of speech. It was our freedom of speech that got rid of criminal-Cardinal Bernard Law and sent him packing out of our sight and out of our land. But only you, Rome, you the Roman Catholic Church a.k.a. Magisterium would glorify criminals like Cardinal Bernard Law and John Paul II. No other American state has been able to replicate our courage as Bostonians who got rid of the first Cardinal caught guilty of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army in America. Yes, we caught the first SS officer of the Third Reich of the Roman Catholic Church … but he went into glorious exile in Rome because only in the Catholic Church are criminals glorified See The John Paul II Millstone John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army expands into Ireland &John Paul is elevated as "Venerable"... only in the Catholic Church are criminals glorified

Benedict XVI, from the Chair of Peter, thinks his papal letter will heal the victims and solve the problem of clergy abuse in Ireland. The fact is, Benedict XVI’s words are powerless. NO POPE has ever healed anyone. As this picture shows,

They came sick and they left sick.

There is NO "Apostolic" authority 

 or succession here


for NO Pope has EVER been able to heal 

like Peter or Paul did.

    USA created ISIS

    Support the Kurdish people's resistance 

    against ISIS, 

    Condemn US and Turkey for creating 

    and using ISIS

    Chairperson, International League of Peoples' Struggle
    14 October 2014

    We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS), salute the heroic resistance of the Kurdish people and their army in Rojava, the YPG/YPJ – People’s Protection Units – against the criminal gangs of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) in Kobane, one of the self-governing cantons of West Kurdistan (Rojava) in Syria.

    We call on all the more than 300 ILPS member-organizations in 38 countries around the globe to take initiative and express their solidarity and support to the Kurdish people's resistance in Kobane and the whole of Rojava, or join the demonstrations being organized by the Kurdish liberation movement in different parts of the world.

    The ILPS condemns the super-terrorist US for creating the ISIS monster that has rampaged through parts of Syria and Iraq, committing hideous crimes against the people in areas that they have overrun. We condemn Turkey for collaborating with the US in creating, arming and coddling this horde of terrorists.

    ISIS and similar extremist Islamist terrorist groups like the Al Qaeda and Al-Nustra have been created by the US as part of its over-all scheme to remake the Middle-East, by carrying out regime change in such countries as Libya and Syria that have dared to assert their national sovereignty against imperialist plunder and war. For its part, the Turkish government is using ISIS to attack the Kurdish liberation struggle led by the PKK.

    ISIS terrorists have been trained by US Special Forces in secret NATO bases inside Turkey and Jordan. For the last year and a half, the US has been developing what the world has now come to know as ISIS. Turkey has allowed safe passage through its borders of jihadists from different parts of the world to join ISIS, and has facilitated the transport of wounded ISIS terrorists to be treated in hospitals in the Turkish province of Urfa and other cities in Turkey.

    The US is remaking the Middle-East in order to consolidate its hegemony in this oil-rich regionIt is using the ISIS in the same manner as it has used Neo-Nazi gangs in the Ukraine to stir up trouble and force regime change, toppling the duly-elected president, and replacing him with a pro-Western president and a fascist military junta as part of US-NATO strategy to encircle and pressure Russia.

    In the wake of the hideous crimes of the ISIS, including the massacre of Shiites and Christians, and the beheading of Western journalists, the US has pretended to adopt a policy of opposing ISIS and carrying out bombing raids against ISIS. In fact, the US is still thereby using the ISIS as the pretext to violate the national sovereignty of Syria.

    The US war planes are actually bombing food granaries and buildings in Syria which are away from ISIS positions. They are now in a position to attack the forces of the Syrian government. Turkey has also exposed its real dirty agenda to attack the Kurdish liberation struggle by bombing PKK forces in Oramar (Daglica) near the border with Iraq, relieving ISIS from the successful counter-attacks of the Kurdish fighters and allowing the ISIS to block humanitarian aid from Iraqi Kurdistan.

    The Kurdish resistance forces in Kobane have said that they can defeat the ISIS without any need for foreign intervention such as that falsely offered by the US and Turkey. All they need from Iraqi Kurdistan are sufficient weapons and ammunition against the tanks and vehicles mounted with big guns of the ISIS terrorists.

    The terrible crimes being perpetrated by the ISIS and the support given them by the US and Turkey have aroused the anger of freedom-loving people throughout the world. At the same time, the heroic resistance of the YPG/YPJ – the People’s Protection Units – composed of Kurdish men and women, has inspired the people of the world to rally in support of the Kurdish liberation struggle.
    The acknowledged leader of the Kurdish liberation struggle, Abdullah Ocalan, has called on the entire Kurdish nation to mobilize in support of the resistance in Kobane. Kurds throughout the world have responded by organizing demonstrations in many countries calling for international support.

    We must show our solidarity to the Kurdish people in their hour of need and give them all-out support until victory.

    U.S. is Responsible for the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa:

     Liberian Scientist

    Global Research, October 17, 2014

    A History of Guatemala’s Syphilis Experiment: How a U.S. Led Team Performed Human Experimentations in Central America
    Dr. Cyril Broderick, A Liberian scientist and a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry says the West, particularly the U.S. is responsible for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Dr. Broderick claims the following in an exclusive article published in the Daily Observer based in Monrovia, Liberia. He wrote the following:
    The US Department of Defense (DoD) is funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March.
    Is it possible that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and other Western countries are directly responsible for infecting Africans with the Ebola virus? Dr. Broderick claims that the U.S. government has a research laboratory located in a town called Kenema in Sierra Leone that studies what he calls “viral fever bioterrorism”, It is also the town where he acknowledges that is the “epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.” Is it a fact? Is Dr. Broderick a conspiracy theorist? He says that “there is urgent need for affirmative action in protecting the less affluent of poorer countries, especially African citizens, whose countries are not as scientifically and industrially endowed as the United States and most Western countries, sources of most viral or bacterial GMOs that are strategically designed as biological weapons.” He also asks an important question when he says “It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone. Are there others?”
    Well, Mr. Broderick’s claims seem to be true. After all, the U.S. government has been experimenting with deadly diseases on human beings for a long time, history tells us so. One example is Guatemala. Between 1946 and 1948, the United States government under President Harry S. Truman in collaboration with Guatemalan President Juan José Arévalo and his health officials deliberately infected more than 1500 soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and even mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and chancroid (a bacterial sexual infection) out of more than 5500 Guatemalan people who participated in the experiments. The worst part of it is that none of the test subjects infected with the diseases ever gave informed consent. The Boston Globe published the discovery made by Medical historian and professor at Wellesley College, Susan M. Reverby in 2010 called ‘Wellesley professor unearths a horror: Syphilis experiments in Guatemala.’ It stated how she came across her discovery:

  1.  Opus Dei Beast members are Pharisees 

  2.  and hypocrites

    The ‘Spotlight’ movie’s main job is to brainwash idiots Americans Catholics so they'll feel-good by focusing only on the Boston Globe by-gone days in 2002 – so they’ll forget the gravity of Vatican Crimes against humanity’s children – worldwide – that spanned the entire half-the-20th century – and forget the bestial JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army - 6,500 bestial priests and – to forget their potential 1.3 million victims in USA alone – and forget the Vatican injustices to countless victims such as the recent Milwaukee “settlements” – and forget the evil Achilles Heels of (false) saint John Paul II and the endless papal pathological lies of Pope Francis – and most of all, to forget the recent highest ranking pedophile criminal Papal Nuncio Archbishop pimp who suddenly (mysteriously and conveniently) dies – before the Venice Film Festival – and whose upcoming “Vatican trial of the century” could have easily outshined ‘Spotlight’ and outperformed Pope Francis’ spectacles in his USA-Cuba trips this September – read our article, Vatican Holy Shit!

I admit to being angry when the impression is given the 'crisis' began in Boston. Thanks for capturing and posting the articles about clergy sexual abuse well before the Boston articles of 2001/2002. Here are published articles from the corn fields of Minnesota going back to 1994, years, years, years before Boston.

This 4-minute video is related to your publication on a Jesuit priest who was found dead next to a 6-story city parking structure.
John Chevedden


In regard to:
A Jesuit who taught at Loyola HS in California was in the news for raping both male and female relatives and even a Jesuit priest at Los Gatos who was punished by the Jesuits for telling about the abuse and mysteriously jumped off a state building to his death.. (the Jesuit who abused every one gerald Lindner
was seen with the victim right before he jumped….
