A very high-level protector of priest pederasts, Cardinal Mahoney of the LA diocese, is being kicked out of his job: “Archbishop Jose Gomez said he had stripped his predecessor, the retired cardinal Roger Mahony, of all public and administrative duties.” More details here:
Boing-Boing said: “The Archdiocese this week…removed Cardinal Roger Mahony from his duties, for his role in enabling and keeping quiet the methodical and widespread molestation. The removal is “unprecedented,” but many victims and advocates believe Mahony deserves greater punishment. Auxiliary Bishop Thomas J. Curry, who helped Mahony hide abusers from police in the eighties, has resigned his post as regional bishop in Santa Barbara, California.”
More significantly, 12,000 pages of files have been released by the diocese to the public “more than a week after church records relating to 14 priests were unsealed as part of a separate civil suit, showing that church officials plotted to conceal the abuse from law enforcement agencies as late as 1987.”
To access the released files, click at end of sentence, then scroll down the page to the section labeled “Clergy Personnel Files”, and a list of names appears which link to the file of the named individual perpetrator priest:
Most of the files are variously redacted, and many of the molesters have since died, but the files still offer some gruesome reading, given the victims were children and their molesters Roman Catholic priests.
Phi Beta Iota: Pedophilia at the elite Banker – Scion – Cardinal level is the perfect storm and that storm is breaking upon us now. Every element of society has failed. When one recognizes that the US federal and state governments have been complicit in providing (selling) children in their care into these pedophilia rings, and that academia, civil society, the media, and the non-profit world have all been active participants in pedophilia operations as well as cover-ups, one must call into question the legitimacy of every part of society. We have no doubt the White House lawyers are busy preparing full pardons for the elite pedophiles that are inevitably going to be outed in the next few years.
