Phil Lawler has Done All the Heavy Lifting

…on the rubbish coming from Abp Carlson and his chancery so that I don’t have to. This will all be a matter for the courts of course. But as for me and my house, I wish bishops who do this stuff would just have the grace to resign. “God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles [Read More…]

Hopefully, the law is finally catching up…

…with this vile priest. In March, the nonprofit group BishopAccountability.org, which specializes in tracking problem priests, announced on its website that not only was Urrutigoity active in the Catholic church in Paraguay, but he had been promoted to the position of vicar general, essentially the second most powerful post in the diocese of Ciudad del Este.

The Great Thing about the Catholic Sex Abuse Scandal for our Chattering Classes…

…was that it provided the incredibly satisfying feeling of caring about children who were sexually abused without having to actually, you know, care or anything. The demonstration of just how shallow and uncaring our Chattering Classes are is this: How many of the people who fake concern about sexual abuse have continued making Woody Allen [Read More…]

There’s nothing quite so daft as a British Intellectual of the Left

Sex offenders including paedophiles should be allowed to adopt, Theresa May told Rules which bar sex offenders from working with children are ‘unfair’ and even convicted paedophiles should have the right to adopt, a leading legal academic has said.

A reader from the troubled Mpls diocese writes:

I listened to you on October 8, 2013, at the Argument of the Month Event in St. Paul, MN. I believe you did an excellent job and in my opinion I believe your advice for the average Catholic was much better than that from the opposing side. Praying, fasting, and almsgiving (charity) is action that [Read More…]

A reader from Mpls/St. Paul writes:

Please keep Archbishop Nienstedt and the Catholic Church in Minnesota in your prayers. Today Archbishop Nienstedt was accused of inappropriately touching a teenaged boy during a confirmation group photo in 2009. I have met and spoken with Archbishop Nienstedt on several occasions and I think the accusation is bogus and am increasingly wondering if there [Read More…]

SNAP Crosses the Line into Inciting Vigilantes

…publishes email addresses and phone numbers of accused priests.  If somebody gets hurt, SNAP has blood on their hands.  We still practice due process in this country. [Read more…]

Billy Graham’s Grandson Says Evangelical Abuse Problem Worse Than Catholic’s

He may be right, but I wouldn’t know that.  And I don’t much care if he is (except insofar as Evangelical children at risk matter as much as Catholic ones or public school ones).  The basic principle at work here is “Worry about your own sins”.  It matters that any child is at risk and [Read More…]

More Blood on the Floor in Minnesota

Archdiocesan moral cretins hid priest’s porn collection (including child porn) from cops and parishioners. This is, by the way, a different priest from the one MPR reported on last week. Classic Institutional Butt Cover moment: When the archdiocese lawyer describes the chancellor-turned-whistleblower as a “disgruntled former employee.” Yes. Disgust over covering up child porn does [Read More…]
