Editor’s note: The liberal hierarchy of the post-Vatican II Catholic Church has been falling all over itself in support of various United Nations programs and initiatives, since the 1960’s. It may now be the time to give the devil his due. Lets’ see how Pope Francis handles this one.

Sanchez: There is nothing wrong with God, with the presence of faith. It is humans, including some of the highest authority figures, who are failing the Catholic Church.

Re: Recent events in Kansas City

The diocese can make any number of new policies and procedures. It probably will, with the best of intentions. But unless the attitudes of the people expected to abide by such policies are altered, nothing will truly change.

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) not pleased with Bishop Conlon.

“We believe that Bishop Conlon still treats victims with extreme disrespect, still quietly moves priests who have complaints against them to new assignments in unsuspecting communities, and does very little to protect kids,” SNAP Director David Clohessy said in a statement. “It’s a blow to wounded victims, vulnerable kids and caring Catholics to see this promotion.”

Two BIG lies: 1) homosexuals aren’t primarily responsible for the spread of AIDS and 2) the Catholic clerical abuse problems isn’t primarily a homosexual one.

AIDS/HIV:

Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM)1represent approximately 2% of the US population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV and are the only risk group in which new HIV infections have been increasing steadily since the early 1990s. In 2006, MSM accounted for more than half (53%) of all new HIV infections in the United States, and MSM with a history of injection drug use (MSM-IDU) accounted for an additional 4% of new infections. At the end of 2006, more than half (53%) of all people living with HIV in the United States were MSM or MSM-IDU. Since the beginning of the US epidemic, MSM have consistently represented the largest percentage of persons diagnosed with AIDS and persons with an AIDS diagnosis who have died.

Homosexual ephebophilia:

The John Jay study on the sex abuse crisis in the Catholic Church in the United States defines “pedophiles” as people who “exhibit recurrent, intense, sexually arousing fantasies, urges or behaviors related to sexual contact with a prepubescent child over a period of at least six months duration.”20

When people speak of the current crisis being a problem involving “pedophile priests,” they are addressing only a small portion of the situation. According to the John Jay study, most of the sexually offending priests are not true pedophiles. They are, instead, “ephebophiles,” who “exhibit these same fantasies, urges or behaviors towards post-pubescent youths.”21 Generally, the John Jay study recognized that pedophilia can be defined as the molestation of children aged ten and younger. The National Review Board study defines “ephebophilia” as “homosexual attraction to adolescent males,” a definition that certainly is validated by quotes by “gay rights” activists elsewhere in this article.22

PBS “Frontline” to document Jesuit clergy abuse aftermath in Alaska

The show, titled “The Silence,” investigates the sexual abuse by Catholic and Jesuit personnel in a region that today wrestles with alcohol abuse, suicide and domestic violence.

Through the voice of victims, the documentary tells the story of routine sexual abuse of Alaska Native children in St. Michael and other villages in the 1960s and ’70s. The crime was kept secret for a generation and initially denied by the church as victims began to come forward in lawsuits in the mid-2000s.

The PBS show bookends earlier news reports on survivor’s stories by following church officials back to St. Michael for a series of court-mandated meetings between Kettler, victims and their families.
