  Recently I shared a story about my childhood priest. I located my community priest’s name on a list of priests accused of committing sexual assaults or abuses against children or members.  A reader suggested I provide resources to my readers on how to locate abusive priests. I believe that if more Catholics researched their dioceses, they would realize problem priests are not a minority in the church. I will provide details on how to locate problem priests in your area…. Read more

  The Catholic Church sex abuse scandal is erupting all over the country. I have written extensively on the scandal since it broke last week. Throughout I have received consistent feedback from Catholics that these crimes are abnormal and didn’t happen in their churches. I believed them because as a former member I also knew no one affected by the scandals. Then it occurred to me that I might know either a victim or a priest involved in the scandal…. Read more

  Growing up in the Catholic Church is akin to being beaten with a stick every single day. Every day Catholic children are reminded of what is wrong with them. They learn from a young age that everything fun in life can be equated to sin. Believing in God is not a ticket to heaven for Catholics. Catholics must refrain from all mortal sins to get to heaven. Ten sins are so ridiculous many Catholics can’t go a day without… Read more

  Yesterday I watched the news as the Attorney General of the State of Pennsylvania detailed a grand jury report against the Catholic Church. As a former Catholic, my heart pained listening to the allegations of sexual abuse, rape, and the massive cover-up of the church. More than 300 Priests were credibly accused in the abuse of more than 1000 children. Bishops and Cardinals in the church lead a massive cover-up to protect the church. The Attorney General noted this… Read more
