“METHODICAL, PLANNED, COMPULSIVE BEHAVIOR DERIVED FROM A FIXATION  ON A TYPE OF VICTIM DESIRED AND ACTS PERFORMED . . .”

“However, there is a much smaller number of serial sex offenders who act out not as a result of the effects of external stress or a weakening of inhibitory controls; instead, they behave in a more methodical fashion using a high degree of planning. In these cases, there is a strong compulsion to act-—a compulsion derived from a fixation on the type of victim desired and the type of acts performed. These offenses are often preceded by yearsof intense fantasy in which the act is rehearsed and strategies are developed. Offenders of this type have a very high potential to repeat their crimes. Such individuals can be quite manipulative in the way they approach victims and in the methods they employ to avoid apprehension. Because their crimes are highly planned and often target particular types of victims, they may abuse large numbers of children before they are apprehended.” (John Jay, p. 57)

“Those priests who have been accused of abusing a large number of young people have attracted significant, often sensationalized, nationwide attention. These cases are frequently discussed along with the cases of those priests who have been transferred from diocese to diocese and who have continued to be accused of sexual abuse of youth under 18. Data from this study has found these two groups to be different in many aspects. Those priests who have ten or more allegations differ in many respects from the average for all priests in the study, but this is not as true for the group having allegations in more than one diocese or religious community. The study received 149 surveys for priests who had ten or more allegations of child sexual abuse—although if potential allegations (from potential victims known to the diocese) are included, the number of priests is 252. After careful analysis, 143 priests out of the total number of 4,392, were identified as having been the subject of allegations in more than one diocese. Of that group, nine had allegation made in three dioceses and one priest was accused of sexual abuse in four dioceses.” (John Jay, p.57)

WHAT ABOUT THE UNJUST TREATMENT OF THE VICTIMS . . .

“The Vatican has long refused to flat-out require bishops to report abuse allegations to police, arguing that such a universal law could lead to unjust treatment of priests in countries where Catholics are a persecuted minority.  Survivors and advocates have long blasted the position, arguing that the Vatican could make a universal reporting mandate with certain exceptions if needed.” (Winfield, Nicole, Vatican Says Bishops Should Report Sex Abuse to Police, AP News, 07/16/2020).

TO THE SERIAL-ABUSING RAPIST INSIDE THE CHURCH, WHAT DOES GOD SAY . . .

You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”(Leviticus 18:22)

“If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestableact; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13)

“You shall not bring the hire of a harlot or the wages of a dog into the house of the LORD your God for any votive offering, for both of these are an abomination to the LORD your God.”(Deu 23:18)

AS FOR THE LITTLE ONES GOD SAYS . . .

“So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish.(Matthew 18:14)

“ . . . but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matthew 18:6, Mark 9:42, Luke 17:2)


Gk. σκανδαλίζω;  skandalizo; stumble

A. to put a stumbling block or impediment in the way, upon which another may trip and fall, metaph. to offend 
1. to entice to sin 
2. to cause a person to begin to distrust and desert one whom he ought to trust and obey 
3. to cause to fall away to be offended in one, i.e. to see in another what I disapprove of and what hinders me from acknowledging his authority to cause one to judge unfavorably or unjustly of another

“Vatican says bishops should report sex abuse to police” by Nicole Winfield, AP News, July 16, 2020

“The Vatican issued a long-awaited manual for bishops and religious superiors on conducting in-house investigations into allegations of priests who rape and molest minors and vulnerable adults.  While the Vatican has had detailed canonical norms in place for two decades, the laws continue to be ignored by some bishops . . .” (Bold added)(Italics added) (Winfield, Nicole, Vatican Says Bishops Should Report Sex Abuse to Police, AP News, 07/16/2020).

“While the Vatican has issued a variety of abuse-related documents over the years, the new manual provides a point-by-point instruction on how to conduct investigations, from start to finish. . .  the manual doesn’t have the force of a new law. . .”(Bold added)(Italics added)(Winfield, Nicole, AP News)

“The policy requires bishops and religious superiors to report allegations of sex crimes with minors only where local laws require it. . . “Even in cases where there is no explicit legal obligation to do so, the ecclesial authorities should make a report to the competent civil authorities”. . . That “church leaders must complywith ‘legitimate’ subpoena requests.”(Bold added)(Italics added) (Winfield, Nicole, AP News)

“The manual, issued in a half-dozen languages, appears aimed in part at depriving bishops and religious superiors of their frequent excuses not to carry out preliminary investigations into accused priests . . . And it warns that bishops can themselves be prosecuted canonically for negligence if they fail to take allegations seriously and investigate them . . . anonymous allegations should not be dismissed outright . . . even hearsayand social media posts can constitute the basis on which to launch a preliminary probe. . . bishops should not ignore allegations just because they fall outside the church’s statute of limitations, since the Vatican can at any time decide to waive the time limit.”(Winfield, Nicole, AP News)

“. . .  the type of crimes that fall under sexual abuse is “quite broad” and includes not only sexual relations but any physical contact for sexual gratification, including actions bishops frequently dismiss as mere “boundary violations.”  The manual lists exhibitionism, masturbation, pornography production and “conversations an/or propositions of a sexual nature” that can occur through a variety of means of communication as crimes that must be investigated.”(Bold added)(Italics added) (Winfield, Nicole, AP News)

“The manual’s origin lies in Pope Frances’ 2019 sex abuse summit . . . a four-day tutorial on preventing abuse.  Francis summoned them after he himself botched a notorious case of abuse and cover-up in Chile, and after he realized that many bishops around the world still didn’t understand or take seriously the depth of the abuse problem in the church.” (Winfield, Nicole, AP News)

In 2021, the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) reported 4,228 child sexual abuse allegations.  These allegations were filed by 3,024 abuse survivors from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.  The incidents involved more than 2,700 individual clergy members from across the country

“Bishops in Spain ask lawyers to audit their sex abuse record.” Arita Parra, AP News, 02/22/2022

“A Madrid-based law firm will conduct a year-long inquiry into past and present sexual abuse committed by Spain’s Roman Catholic clergy, members of religious orders, teachers and other associated with the church, the law firm and the head of the country’s bishops’ conference said Tuesday.  .  . Some abuse survivors met the news with skepticism.”(Parra, Arita, Bishops In Spain Ask Lawyers to Audit Their Sex Abuse Record, AP News, 02/22/2022).

“Cremades said, as a faithful Catholic himself, he was both overwhelmed by the task and “convinced that the Church must go to the end, get to the bottom, investigate, beg for pardon, if it’s needed, and rectify everything that is necessary.”(Parra, Arita, AP News)

“He said his firm would act pro-bono and only seek for the Episcopal Conference to pay logistical costs or the fees of external advisors.”(Parra, Arita, AP News)

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS PRACTICING INSANITY . . . “DOING THE SAME THING, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, BUT EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS.” (NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS)

Cardinal Juan Jose Omella, the conference’s president, said the goal of the inquiry by law firm Remades & Calvo Sotelo “is the help and reparation of the victims, establishing new and additional channels to collaborate and denounce in addition to those existing in over 40 offices established by the Church.”(Parra, Arita, AP News)

“The inquiry is intended to cover all abuse and is not limited to investigating only cases in a certain time period . . .”(Parra, Arita, AP News)

THE REAL PROBLEM INSIDE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. . . 

“. . . The ecclesiastical career was the ideal solution for many homosexuals who found it difficult to accept their private orientation.  Tens of thousands of Italian priests sincerely believed that the religious vocation was ‘the’ solution of their ‘problem’.  That is the first rule of The closet:  for a long time the priesthood was the ideal escape-rout for young homosexuals.  Homosexuality is one of the keys to their vocation.” (Martel Frederic, and Shaun Whiteside.  In the Closet of the Vatican Power, Homosexuality, Hypocrisy. Bloomsbury Continuum, 2019, p. 56)

“These effeminate young men who were worried about their desires; those boys who felt an inclination towards their best friends, who were teased for the affectation of their voices; those homosexuals who sought to find themselves without wishing to declare themselves;  those seminarians who weren’t on the right path—they had few options in Italy in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.” 

“Some of them understood precociously, almost atavistically, how to turn homosexuality into strength, to turn a weakness into an advantage:  by becoming a priest.  This allowed them to regain power over their own lives, imagining that they were answering the twofold call of Christ and their desires.”

MAN’S SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM . . . REPARATIONS

CONTINUOUS RAPE, HOMOSEXUALITY AND MOLESTATION INSIDE THE CHURCH AND UTILIZING REPARATIONS AS A PASS TO “GO” IS STILL LIVING IN SIN !. . . MONEY DOES NOT PERMIT CONTINUOUS SIN WITH A CYCLICAL PASS FOR FORGIVENESS!!!

NEITHER YOUR TITLE, YOUR POSITION, NOR YOUR LIBERTY INSIDE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS TO BE UTALIZED AS AN AUTHORITATIVE POWER TO CONTINUE IN SIN! . . .

GOD’S SOLUTION TO YOUR SIN PROBLEM . . . 

“DO NOT BE DECEIVED, GOD IS NOT MOCKED;  FOR WHATEVER A MAN SOWS, THIS HE WILL ALSO REAP.”  (GALATIANS 6:7)

“NO ONE SAY WHEN HE IS TEMPTED,” I AM BEING TEMPTED BY GOD;” FOR GOD CANNOT BE TEMPTED BY EVIL, AND HE HIMSELF DOES NOT TEMPT ANYONE.  BUT EACH ONE IS TEMPTED WHEN HE IS CARRIED AWAY AND ENTICED BY HIS OWN LUST.  THEN WHEN LUST HAS CONCEIVED, IT GIVES BIRTH TO SIN; AND WHEN SIN IS ACCOMPLISHED, IT BRINGS FORTH DEATH.  DO NOT BE DECEIVED MY BELOVED BRETHREN.” (JAMES 1:13-16).  

“WHAT SHALL WE SAY THEN?  ARE WE TO CONTINUE IN SIN SO THAT GRACE MAY INCREASE?  MAY IT NEVER BE!”  (ROMANS 6:1)

“Although some bishops and religious orders had said they were open to an inquest, the Spanish Episcopal conference previously rejected a comprehensive investigation,instead encouraging victims to report their allegations to diocesan offices.” (Parra, Arita, AP News)

“Asked by The Associated Press about the change in approach, Omella said that the audit was the result of long reflection and internal debate:  “It’s not easy to take a quick decision.”(Parra, Arita, AP News)

“Cremades and Omella presented the law firm’s investigation as an external audit.  Cremades said he wants to coordinate with Spanish authorities, who are convertingan investigation of their own.”(Parra, Arita, AP News)

“Spanish lawmakers are expected to vote in March on the terms of a parliamentary investigation into the depths of the sexual abuse committed by Catholic clergy.  The Spanish government has proposed having the country’s ombudsman lead that inquiry.”(Parra, Arita, AP News)

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS BEEN DISCUSSING “ZERO TOLERANCE” FOR TWO DECADES . . . 

“A DOUBLE MINDED MAN IS WICKED IN ALL HIS WAYS” (JAMES 1:8)

Cardinal William H. Keeler said “He favors defrocking even for long-past, isolated abuse cases. “Last month, anticipating the adoption of zero tolerance, Keeler forced the retirement of the Rev. William Simms, who had been accused of abuse in the 1980s, had received psychological treatment and had been working in an administrative job since then in the chancery).”(Bold added)(Italics added) (Winfield, Nicole, AP News)

“SNAP not only favors strict zero tolerance but also called yesterday for removal of bishops who they say protected abusers by assigning them to new parishes, where other children were subsequently abused.” (Bold added)(Italics added) (Winfield, Nicole, AP News)

“SNAP’s “demand came on the same day that The Dallas Morning News reported that roughly two-thirds of U.S. Catholic bishops allowed priests accused of sexual abuse to continue working in ministry. A review of the nation’s 178 Roman Catholic dioceses showed that at least 111 are led by bishops who allowed alleged sexual abusers to return to parish ministry. The list included (CardinalKeeler, who allowed Blackwell to return to parish after he was credibly accused of sexual abuse.”(Bold added)(Italics added)(Parentheses added)(Winfield, Nicole, AP News)

CARDINAL ARCHBISHOP THEODORE MCCARRICK, SERIAL SEXUAL ABUSER . . . 

“FOR IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR THEM NOT TO HAVE KNOWN THE WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, THAN HAVING KNOWN IT, TO TURN AWAY FROM THE HOLY COMMANDMENT HANDED ON THEM.  IT HAS HAPPENED TO THEM ACCORDING TO THE TRUE PROVERB, “A DOG RETURNS TO ITS OWN VOMIT,” AND, “A SOW, AFTER WASHING, RETURNS TO WALLOWING IN THE MIRE.” (2 PETER 2:21-22)

VICTIM TESTIMONIES OF SERIAL-ABUSING PRIESTS . . .

“This meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, (Dallas, 2002) is unprecedented in our history,” said Bishop Wilton D. Gregory of Belleville, Ill., president of the conference. . .The major focus of debate is expected to be over whether to adopt a policy of “zero tolerance” toward priests who abused children in the past. A proposal drafted by a committee of bishops proposes defrocking any priest who commits an act of abuse in the future and those who have committed multiple acts in the past. But it leaves open the possibility that one- time offenders could be returned to ministry under very strict conditions.

When Janet Patterson met with four cardinals yesterday, including Baltimore’s Cardinal William H. Keeler, she showed them two pictures. One was of her son Eric, a handsome, strapping young man who was fluent in Spanish and played bass in a rock band. The other was of his tombstone, at the gravesite where they laid him three years ago after he killed himself, tormented over abuse by his parish priest. He was 29.” 

“. . . It was such a priest that the Pattersons say preyed on their son. They say he was tormented for years by the shame he felt over being repeatedly raped by a parish priest, the Rev. Robert Larson, as a 12-year-old altar boy. Eric Patterson revealed the abuse to his sister, who was visiting him in a mental hospital, just months before he shot himself.”

“After he revealed the abuse, the nurse came in and found him pounding his head on the floor,” Janet Patterson said. “He had to be placed in restraints and sedated.”

He sank deeper into depression from which he never recovered. In his suicide note, which he titled “Hope,” Eric Patterson wrote that he “tried to please God every day but I have always come up so short that he makes me feel guilty about my life.”

His parents’ hearts were broken a second time when they learned that the church knew the priest had a history of sexual abuse before he was assigned to their parish“If Father Larson had not been in our parish, Eric would be alive today,” said his father, Horace Patterson.

“THE PRIEST USED ‘THE WEAPONIZATION OF FAITH’ TO SILENCE VICTIMS . . . “

“’Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing. They hid it all,’ Attorney General Josh Shapiro said at a news conference in Harrisburg.”

“The 800-page report refers to more than 300 priests in six diocese where children were raped, plied with alcohol, or forced to perform for clergymen to produce pornographic material since the mid-1950s.”

 “A grand jury report released Tuesday reveals the horrific predatory behavior which included making young boys rinse their mouths with holy water to ‘purify’ them after they were forced to give oral sex to clergymen and the abuse of one boy who was made to pose naked as Jesus while other priests took pornographic pictures.”

“Describing the ‘weaponization of faith’ to silence victims, Shapiro cited several examples including one priest who allegedly told children ‘how Mary had to lick Jesus clean after he was born’ to groom them for oral sex. ‘Children were taught that this abuse was not only normal but that it was holy,’ Shapiro said.”

“The priests would mark out which boys had been groomed for abuse by giving them gold crosses to wear as necklaces.”

“'[H]e was an altar boy (7th grade), and Reverend David A. Soderlund, had a trailer which he kept at the Appalachian Trail Sites in Shartlesville, brought him there almost weekly, over a period of about 5 years, where they engaged in sexual acts,’ one of Soderlund’s alleged victims told church officials in 1997. . . ‘The victim said, he was not a willing participant, but David threatened to harm or kill him. . . ‘David also took pictures of the victim engaged in sexual acts and threatened to use them to embarrass him.’”

“Another young girl was raped by a number of priests who later told her that this was God’s way of showing love.”

“A priest in Scranton sexually assaulted an underage girl, impregnated her in the process, and then arranged for her to have an abortion, the grand jury report states.”

“One of his [Father Edward Graff’s] victims, Joey, [Joseph Behe] was so violently raped when he was 7 years old that he suffered injuries to his spine . . . Joey became addicted to pain medication, and eventually overdosed and died . . . Before his death, Joey wrote a letter to the Allentown Diocese. . . In the letter, Joey said . . .”

“Graff killed his potential and the man he could have become.”

‘The abuse did happen. The grand jurors believed Joey,’ Shapiro said to Joey’s mother, who was sitting on the stage Tuesday. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6060525/Pennsylvania-report-details-300-priests-sexually-molested-1-000-children-70-years.html

“Survivors of Sexual Abuse by Priests in Living Hell: Psychological Effects of Abuse . . . “By Kate Scannell, M.D., Alameda Times Star, May 6, 2004. https://www.snapnetwork.org/psych_effects/survivors_in_living_hell.htm

“It consumed her entire life, the priest’s hand on her body creating a permanent tattoo that penetrated deeply into her soul.”(Bold added)(Italics added)

“She couldn’t concentrate on her work, and her business regularly faltered. Her sleep fragmented routinely under the weight of her nightmaresMemories of being sexually abused by a revered member of the local clergyhaunted her, and they formed barriers between her and the church doorway, between her and relationships with men.”(Bold added)(Italics added)

“She developed headaches, muscle pains, stomach distress and chest pressure that defied repeated diagnostic divinations for physical causes. Well into her 40s, she felt that her life had been stolen from her decades earlierby the popular priest who repeatedly violated her young body.”(Bold added)(Italics added)

“Like many other victims of this pedophilia scandal, this woman bore her trauma in silence, unconsciously forcing her body to express the suffering she could not voice. The shroud of silence that characteristically drapes over this traumatic experience is a complex weave, but a central thread is the tendency of these victims to blame themselves. Victims often bear the stigma of shame, and they fear being rebuked and discredited if they dare to criticize priests for ungodly acts. . .”(Bold added)(Italics added)

“. . . As the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology points out, adults with histories of sexual abuse often manifest a host of psychological, behavioral, and physical symptoms. Physical complaints commonly include chronic pain syndromes, various gastrointestinal or musculoskeletal symptoms, sleep and eatingdisorders, and sexual dysfunction. Prevalent psychological and behavioral dysfunctions include depression, anxiety, sexual dysfunction, self-injury and dissociative states.”(Bold added)(Italics added)

“Counseling and psychotherapy can prove to be a godsend for adult survivors of childhood sexual trauma according to Rosemary Ehat, a psychotherapist in Berkeley with an interest in the victims of sexual abuse by Catholic priests. She reports that such survivors typically feel shame, guilt, self-loathing, and depression. She says that “rather than realizing that the shame belongs to the perpetrator, the survivor feels bad and somehow tainted. Consequently, some wait 10, 20, or even 50 years before breaking the chains of silence that kept them locked in isolation.”(Bold added)(Italics added)

“In addition to the physical and psychological expressions of their abuse, “these people also lose their religiousand spiritual home” and “they go on with their lives but feel burdened by the secret and the feelings of betrayaland abandonment.”(Bold added)(Italics added)

FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS LIVING AND ACTIVE AND SHARPER THAN ANY TWO-EDGED SWORD, AND PIERCING AS FAR AS THE DIVISION OF SOUL AND SPIRIT, OF BOTH JOINTS AND MARROW, AND ABLE TO JUDGETHE THOUGHTS AND INTENTIONS OF THE HEART.  AND THERE IS NO CREATURE HIDDEN FROM HIS SIGHT, BUT ALL THINGS ARE OPEN AND LAID BARE TO THE EYES OF HIM WITH WHOM WE HAVE TO DO.”

“THEREFORE, SINCE WE HAVE A GREAT HIGH PRIEST WHO HAS PASSED THROUGH THE HEAVENS, JESUS THE SON OF GOD, LET US HOLD FAST OUR CONFESSION.  FOR WE DO NOT HAVE A HIGH PRIEST WHO CANNOT SYMPATHIZE WITH OUR WEAKNESSES, BUT ONE WHO HAS BEEN TEMPTED IN ALL THINGS AS WE ARE, YET WITHOUT SIN.  THEREFORE LET US DRAW NEAR WITH CONFIDENCE TO THE THRONEOF GRACE, SO THAT WE MAY RECEIVE MERCY AND FIND GRACE TO HELP IN TIME OF NEED.”  (HEBREWS 4:12-16)

MANY WILL FOLLOW THEIR SENSUALITY, AND BECAUSE OF THEM THE WAY OF THE TRUTH WILL BE MALIGNED; AND IN THEIR GREED THEY WILL EXPLOIT YOU WITH FALSE WORDS; THEIR JUDGMENTFROM LONG AGO IS NOT IDLE, AND THEIR DESTRUCTION IS NOTASLEEP.”(2 PETER 2:2)

This city is a provocation of My anger and My wrath from the day that they built it . . . EVEN TO THIS DAY!

“Indeed the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah have been doing only evil in My sight from their youth; for the sons of Israel have been only provoking Me to anger by the work of their hands,” declares the LORD. “Indeed this city has been to Me a provocation of My anger and My wrath from the day that they built it, even to this day, so that it should be removed from before My face, because of all the evil of the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah which they have done to provoke Me to anger—they, their kings, their leaders, their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They have turned their back to Me and not their face; though I taught them, teaching again and againthey would not listen and receive instruction. But they put their detestable things in the house which is called by My name, to defile it.”(Jeremiah 32:30-34)

FATHER RONALD YARROSH, SERIAL-ABUSING PRIEST

<img id=”i-7c066494716b34ed” src=”https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/08/15/03/4F1920C000000578-6061583-image-a-4_1534299841452.jpg&#8221; height=”417″ width=”284″ alt=”” class=”blkBorder img-share” />

“In 2004, Father Ronald Yarrosh was found to be in possession of ‘a tremendous amount’ of child pornography. A week later, Yarrosh was removed from his priestly ministry and ordered to undergo evaluation and treatment.”

“In May of that year, Pennsylvania State Police charged Yarrosh with 110 counts of sexual abuse of children. Yarrosh was found to have had hundreds of child pornography photos, books, magazines, video, and DVDs in his possession, according to the grand jury report.”

“During a subsequent investigation, Yarrosh was also found to have embezzled $23,000 from his parish. A year after his arrest, he pleaded guilty to theft and possession of child pornography.”

“He struck a plea bargain and agreed to serve between three and 23 months in prison . . .Yarrosh ended up serving just three months. Upon his release, he registered with Pennsylvania State Police as a sex offender.”

“After his release from prison, Yarrosh was allowed to continue as a priest. . . The Diocese granted him residence at St. Francis Villa in Orwigsburg – even though church officials considered him ‘a moderate to high risk to again use pornography and/or consort with prostitutes.’”

“In November 2006, authorities learned Yarrosh took trips to New York City with a seven-year-old child. Yarrosh was also found to be in possession of child pornography – a violation of his court-ordered supervision. Pennsylvania authorities sentenced Yarrosh to four-to-10 years behind bars. In June 2007, the Diocese removed Yarrosh from the priesthood.”

THOMAS BENDER, SERIAL-ABUSING PRIEST

<img id=”i-65835c4f5038e10d” src=”https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/08/15/03/4F1920C400000578-6061583-image-a-2_1534299466515.jpg&#8221; height=”413″ width=”284″ alt=”” class=”blkBorder img-share” />

“In 1972, the Allentown Diocese received a report from a Deacon who also happened to be a Pennsylvania State Trooper. . . The Deacon reported that another Trooper found Bender in a car with a male student from Nativity High School in Pottsville, where the clergyman was assigned. Both Bender and the boy had their pants off, according to the Deacon.”

“Thomas J. Welsh, who was the Bishop of the Diocese, received the report. It stated that the Trooper gave Bender a ‘lecture and sent him on his way.’  When Bender was confronted about the incident, he claimed this was the first time this had happened. He was allowed to continue as a priest.”

“In 1984, a young male came forward and told church officials that three years earlier, when he was in seventh grade, Bender sexually abused him.  This abuse entailed oral and anal sex while Bender and the boy were in bed together. Church officials sent Bender to psychotherapy, but still allowed him to continue to minister.”

“In 1986, the victim overdosed on drugs and was admitted to a psychiatric institute.  The victim and his family reported Bender to the authorities and filed a lawsuit against the church.”

“The next year, Bender was placed on a leave of absence. In 1988, he was arrested and convicted.  Bender was given a light sentence of probation. He was kept on a leave of absence until 2002, when he successfully applied for retirement benefits, including health insurance, life insurance, a living allowance, retreat fees, and car insurance.”

“In 2004, the Diocese received more reports of alleged abuse by Bender. Those allegations, some stemming from as far back as 1966, were reported to the authorities in Pennsylvania.

“In 2006, Bender was arrested by an undercover police officer in New York State who posed as a ’14-year-old boy’ whom the former cleric tried to lure to a hotel room on Long Island.”

“He was sentenced to 10 years in prison and lifetime probation. Bender is a registered sex offender in the State of New York.

VERY REVEREND HENRY STRASSNER and THOMAS BENDER, SERIAL-ABUSING PRIESTS

“In August 1988, the Allentown Diocese received a complaint from a 19-year-old man who alleged that Father Henry Strassner kissed him four times on the lips ‘in the same way a woman would kiss.’ . . .The alleged incident occurred during a counseling session which Strassner administered to the man.”

“Strassner, when confronted about the incident, first denied knowing the man. But then he admitted to the claims, saying that he ‘did not intend anything sexual.’  Strassner later claimed the victim ‘was essentially parentless and I wanted to simply affirm his sense of self-worth.’ . . .He was was sent to see a counselor who then told the Diocese that there was ‘a lot more going on here than Father Strassner has admitted.’”

“In 1991, the Diocese received more complaints about alleged sexual abuse of children at the hands of Strassner.  One victim claimed Strassner molested him on more than one occasion when he was between the ages of six and nine. The victim also claimed that another priest was involved in the abuse.”

“Another victims gave a much more detailed description of Strassner’s behavior.  The victim’s mother invited Strassner to their home after hearing him give a lecture on drugs.  During a counseling session, the victim, who was told to trust Strassner, confided in him.  At one point, Strassner told the victim he needed to ‘touch him.’  Strassner then began to masturbate the victim and perform oral sex on him.”

“After this incident was reported, Strassner was reassigned to a local Catholic high school.  The Diocese possessed documents indicating that between 25 and 30 people complained they were sexually abused by Strassner. The victims reported post-traumatic stress, drug and alcohol abuse, criminal behavior, and suicidal thoughts in the years after they were assaulted.”

Strassner was never removed from his position by the church. He died in 2009”

WHAT DOES GOD SAY TO THE WICKED. . .

“Now as for you, son of man, say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus you have spoken, saying, “Surely our transgressions and our sins are upon us, and we are rotting away in them; how then can we survive?”’ Say to them, ‘As I live!’ declares the Lord GOD, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! Why then will you die, O house of Israel?’” (Ezk 33:10-11)

TO YOU WHO TRUST IN YOUR BEHAVIOR OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. . . 

“And you, son of man, say to your fellow citizens, ‘The righteousness of a righteous man will not deliver him in the day of his transgression . . . “ (Ezk 33:12a)

“. . . whereas a righteous man will not be able to live by his righteousness on the day when he commits sin.’When I say to the righteous he will surely live, and he so trusts in his righteousness that he commits iniquitynone of his righteous deeds will be remembered; but in that same iniquity of his which he has committed he will die.”(Ezk 33:12b-13)

YET IF THE WICKED MAN TURNS FROM HIS WICKEDNESS . . .

“. . . and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he will not stumble because of it in the day when he turns from his wickedness; ”(Ezk 33:12b-13)

“But when I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and he turns from his sin and practices justice and righteousness, if a wicked man restores a pledge, pays back what he has taken by robbery, walks by the statutes which ensure life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of his sins that he has committed will be remembered against him. He has practiced justice and righteousness; he shall surely live.”(Ezk 33:14-16)

I WILL JUDGE EACH OF YOU ACCORDING TO HIS WAYS . . .

“Yet your fellow citizens say, ‘The way of the Lord is not right,’ when it is their own way that is not right. When the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, then he shall die in it. But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and practices justice and righteousness, he will live by them. Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not right.’ O house of Israel, I will judge each of you according to his ways.” (Ezekiel 33:10-20)

WOE TO THOSE WHO CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL; WHO SUBSTITUTE DARKNESS FOR LIGHT AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS; WHO SUBSTITUTE BITTER FOR SWEET AND SWEET FOR BITTER!”  (ISAIAH 5:20) 

AS FOR THE POPE, CATHOLIC CLERGY, MEMBERS OF RELIGIOUS ORDERS, TEACHERS AND ALL OTHER ECCLESIAL AUTHORITIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE CHURCH UNDER THE POPE’S LEADERSHIP WHO HAVE COMMITTED THE SINS OF HOMOSEXUALITY, MOLESTATION AND/OR RAPE WHILE REPRESENTING GOD THE LORD CONSIDERS YOU . . . AMONG . . .  THE . . . WICKED!

SO THE WORLD IS NOT CONFUSED . . . I’M NOT YOUR JUDGE! . . .  NEITHER AM I  HERE TO JUDGE YOUR SIN! . . .

“But when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION standing where it should not be (let the reader understand). . . (Mark 13:14)

Gk: βδέλυγμα; abomination; a foul thing, a detestable thing

Gk: ρήμωσις; desolation; making a desolate, desolation

  • Homosexuality (Lev 18:22)
  • Homosexuality a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. (Lev. 20:13)

  • No wages of dog; a male prostitute (Deu.23:18)
  • No graven images; idols (Deu 7:25)

AS FOR THE POPE, CATHOLIC CLERGY, MEMBERS OF RELIGIOUS ORDERS, TEACHERS AND OTHER ASSOCIATED WITH THE CHURCH UNDER THE POPE’S LEADERSHIP IS WHERE HOMOSEXUALITY, MOLESTATION AND RAPE . . . SHOULD . . . NOT . . . BE! . . .  THESE ACTS OF HOMOSEXUALITY, MOLESTATION AND RAPE . . . ARE . . . AN . . . ABOMINATION . . . TO . . . GOD!  . . . BECAUSE YOU INSIDE OF THE CHURCH COMMITTED THESE ACTS OF ABOMINATION, YOU . . . ARE . . . THE . . . ROOT . . . CAUSE . . .  OF. . . THE . . . DESOLATION; THE FALLING AWAY OF THE CHURCH!


THE SIN IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS LIKE A CANCER ; FIRST IT’S AN INFECTED WOMB AND BECAUSE IT HAS NOT BEEN REMOVED FROM THE CORE OF THE INFECTION, IT DOESN’T GET THE ATTENTION IT NEEDS TO UPROOT THE POISON, IT CONTINUES TO SPREAD TO A STAGE 4 DISEASE!
EIGHTH STEP:  “MAKE A LIST OF ALL PERSONS WE HAVE HARMED AND BECOME WILLING TO MAKE AMENDS TO THEM ALL.” 

AN APOLOGY IS JUST THE BEGINNING . . . .

YOUR “APOLOGY” IS JUST THE BEGINNING . . . YOUR APOLOGY VINDICATES  YOU MORE THAN IT SERVES THE VICTIM.

“VINDICATE”. . . 

1. to free from allegation or blame

2. to provide justification or defense for : JUSTIFY

3. to protect from attack or encroachment : DEFEND


BECAUSE THE VATICAN CAN AT ANY TIME DECIDE TO WAIVE THE TIME LIMIT ON THE CANONICAL “STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS” IT GIVES THE SERIAL ABUSING PRIESTS PERMISSION TO CONTINUE IN SIN!. . . 
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6060525/Pennsylvania-report-details-300-priests-sexually-molested-1-000-children-70-years.html

“Hundreds of Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania  have molested more than 1,000 children and senior church officials, including the now archbishop of Washington, D.C., systematically covered up the abuse.”


“THE 12 STEP PROGRAM IS INTENDED AS A PROCESS FOR RECONCILIATION STEP 8; ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS SHOWED THE ADDICT THE WAY . . . “

. . . BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WON’T ADMIT YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, YOU NEVER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO STEP WORK!  IT’S TIME YOU DO SOME STEP-WORK BECAUSE YOUR WAY IS NOT WORKING!!!

BUT THROUGH A “12 STEP PROGRAM” THE “RELATIONSHIP” BETWEEN THE ADDICT AND GOD IS  RECONCILED . . . 


“Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering.(Matthew 5:23-24)

GOD’S INTENDED MEANING OF “RECONCILIATION” . . .

διαλλάσσω; diallassō; Reconciled

  1. to change 
  2. to change the mind of anyone, to reconcile 
  3. to be reconciled, to renew friendship with one

Strong’s Definitions: διαλλάσσω diallássō, dee-al-las’-so; from G1223 and G236; to change thoroughly, i.e. (mentally) to conciliate:—reconcile.

What the Catholic Church has done (through the work of Satan) was MALIGNED the syntax [the way in which linguistic elements (such as words) are put together to form phrases or clauses].  Maligned, (i.e. to make something evil in nature or effect). 

YOUR CATHOLIC CANONICAL POLICY READS AS FOLLOWS . . .

“. . .  the type of crimes that fall under sexual abuse is “quite broad” and includes not only sexual relations but any physical contact for sexual gratification, including actions bishops frequently dismiss as mere “boundary violations.”  The manual lists exhibitionism, masturbation, pornography production and “conversations an/or propositions of a sexual nature” that can occur through a variety of means of communication as crimes that must be investigated.”

THE CATHOLIC DEFINITION OF “RECONCILED” IS PENANCE

Reconciled; the Roman Catholic sacrament of “penance”

“Penance”


1.  “an act of self-abasement, mortification, or devotion performed to show sorrow or repentance for sin //He did charitable work as a penance.”

2.  “a sacramental rite that is practiced in Roman, Eastern, and some Anglican churches and that consists of private confession, absolution and a penance directed by the confessor”


3.  “something (such as a hardship or penalty) resembling an act of penance (as in compensating for an offense) //who go on cheap camping trips instead of real vacations as a kind of penance”— Judith Thurman

YOU DON’T NEED ABSOLUTION FROM THE POPE OR THE CATHOLIC CHURCH! . . . THEY DON’T HAVE A HEAVEN OR HELL TO PUT YOU IN!

“But I say, Through the instrumentality of the Spirit habitually order your manner of life, and you will in no wise execute the passionate desire of the evil nature, for the evil nature constantly has a strong desire to suppress the Spirit, and the Spirit constantly has a strong desire to suppress the evil nature. And these are entrenched in an attitude of mutual opposition to one another so that you may not do the things that you desire to do. But if you are being led by the Spirit you are not under law. Now the works of the evil nature are well known, works of such a nature as, for example, fornication, uncleanness, wantonness, idolatry, witchcraft, enmities, strife, jealousy, angers, self-seekings, divisions, factions, envyings, drunkenness, carousings, and the things of such a nature which are like these things, respecting which things I am telling you beforehand even as I told you in advance, that those who are in the habit of practicing things of that nature shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”(Galatians 5:16-21)

HERE IS YOUR ABSOLUTION . . .  

“For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justifiedby His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.”(Romans 5:6-10)

YOU DON’T NEED ABSOLUTION FROM MERE MAN! . . . YOU NEED JESUS! 

“And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.”(Romans 5:11)

BUT BEFORE SATAN, MAN WAS NOT ASHAMED . . . 

“And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.” (Genesis 2:25)

SIN ENTERED THE WORLD . . .

“Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. . .”(Gen 3:1)

BECAUSE OF SATAN THE TRUTH WAS MALIGNED . . . 

“. . . And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but from the fruit of the treewhich is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’” The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like Godknowing good and evil.” (Gen 3:1-5)

LUST OF THE EYES, LUST OF THE FLESH AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE . . .  

“When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.” (Gen 3:6-7)

IF YOU SAY YOU HAVE NO SIN YOU MAKE GOD TO BE A LIE . . .

“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned— for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offenseof Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.”

BECAUSE ADAM, HE DID EAT OF THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT, SO YOU TOO HAVE SINNED . . .

“But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the onethe many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the oneMan, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgressionresulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from manytransgressions resulting in justification. For if by the transgression of the onedeath reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.”

THE FREE GIFT“THE GRACE” OF JESUS CHRIST ABOUNDS . . . 

“So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous. The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 5:11-21)

THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO MAKE IT RIGHT WITH MANKIND . . . TAKE THIS  OPPORTUNITY AND “MAKE A LIST OF ALL PERSONS YOU HAVE HARMED AND BE WILLING TO MAKE AMENDS TO THEM ALL.” 

THEN GO TO YOUR FATHER, PRAY AND ASK HIM FOR FORGIVENESS.  ONCE HE HAS FORGIVEN YOU, YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT CONTINUE IN THE LIFESTYLE AND ADDICTION YOU HAVE BEEN LIVING IN.  YOU MUST TURN FROM YOUR SIN ONCE AND FOR ALL.  A GRATEFUL ADDICT JUST WON’T USE!  SINCE YOU CAN’T DO IT ON YOUR OWN, YOU NEED TO CONFESS THAT TO GOD AS WELL SO HE WILL SHOW YOU A WAY OF ESCAPE.  

IF YOU HAVE NOT OBTAINED A SPONSOR, GONE TO ANY TYPE OF TWELVE STEP PROGRAM, YOU NEED TO BEGIN.  NOTHING IS PARALLEL TO ONE ADDICT HELPING ANOTHER.  

YOU NEED TWELVE STEP MEETINGS AND YOU NEED TO DO THE STEP WORK WITH A SPONSOR AND YOU NEED TO FELLOWSHIP WITH  PEOPLE WHOSE HEART IS IN SINK WITH GOD!  

PRAY FOR WISDOM AND DIRECTION DAILY.  READ YOUR TWELVE STEP LITERATURE.  BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, READ YOUR BIBLE AND GET TO KNOW YOUR FATHER, GOD.

IF YOU DON’T KNOW JESUS, KNOW IS THE TIME TO INVITE HIM INTO YOUR HEART.  BOW YOUR HEAD AND SAY, “JESUS, I BELIEVE YOU DIED ON THE CROSS FOR MY SINS.  I BELIEVE YOU WERE BURIED AND I BELIEVE THAT AFTER THREE DAYS YOU ROSE FROM THE DEAD.”  ONCE YOU MAKE THAT VERBAL CONFESSION, YOUR IN THE KINGDOM!  WELCOME TO THE FAMILY!  

JUST REMEMBER, WHERE SIN INCREASED, GRACE ABOUNDED EVEN THE MORE . . . FOR THROUGH JESUS CHRIST ALONE YOU WERE SANCTIFIED, JUSTIFIED AND RECONCILED BACK TO HIM!   JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO !!!
