Catholic Church Coverup Continues
Arizona State Professor Jaime Lara resigns after his past is revealed.

Washington Post

Quote:The Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, under pressure from victims, posted on its website the names of eight priests who had been laicized — “dispensed from the clerical state” by the Vatican — for sexually abusing children. Among the names on the list was the Rev. James Lara, also known as Jaime Lara, who served in active ministry for 19 years, from 1973 to 1992.

So the church knew he was a pedophile but didn't tell the public for 25 years:

Quote:Lara was able to keep his past hidden for so long because the diocese refused to tell the public which priests were removed from ministry because of “credible” allegations of molesting children.

New York Times

The church should be charged under organized crime statutes as operating an organized pedophilia ring.

How many more victims are there after 25 years?

The Church continues to be the most politically and morally corrupt organization on the planet. I am not surprised. Dodgy

Why isn't INTERPOL invading the Vatican as of the last... forty years?

Good point.

And why aren’t Catholic churces met with hostility in our communities?

Even NAMBLA is limited to espousing a philosophy. Catholicism is pedophilia in action.

Social taboos, political correctness, blind denial, and moral weakness? Consider

Invading the holy of holies just because some of it's servants stray from path of righteousness? No religious mind could conceive of such. Sadly.

Maybe some day this fucked up institution will collapse under the weight of financial recompensation to it's victims but other than that I expect it to last. Sadly.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

What will it take for people to stop sending money to this horrendous institution? Sad

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

I'll use example to illustrate*: few hours before Americans entered small German city, Nazis ruling there hanged a man that most probably would have lived under different regime.

RE: Catholic Church Coverup Continues
I'm still pissed off that they're able to carry on their own investigations and keep stuff secret from law enforcement/the prosecution. If some random group of people decided to dole out punishment on their own and not report the crime, people would be up in arms. Especially if that "punishment" was "hide the deed and move the rapist somewhere else with other kids".

I want to see criminal prosecution of the rapists and obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact charges for everyone who covers.

RE: Catholic Church Coverup Continues
How in any realm do the local diocese have any authority over the police force? I get having "internal investigation" but how are the Police just not walking into these places and arresting them/charging them/sending them to prison ?
