Catholic priest makes thirteen year olds lick whipped cream off his knee.

You’re probably thinking “Oh, JT is being sensationalist with a blog title.”  No, no I’m not.  That is exactly what happened.  If you’re feeling like your day needs a tremendous swell of moral outrage, follow that link and look at the pictures.

A police investigation has been launched after a series of disturbing photos emerged showing schoolchildren licking whipped cream from the knee of a Polish priest.

The images – which are apparently part of an ‘initiation ceremony’ at Salesians High School in Lubin, southern Poland – show both male and female 13-year old pupils taking part in the bizarre practice.

When confronted by the police, how do you think Marcin Kozyra responded?  Did he deny the allegations?  Did he say that the kids were actually older?  Did he say it wasn’t a crime because they were almost fourteen years old?

No.

Father Marcin Kozyra, who is also the school’s principal, has defended his actions by saying such ceremonies for first year pupils have been an annual event for many years.

Who gives a shit if it’s tradition???  What on earth could possibly make you think that was ok?  “Gee, officer, I didn’t even think about whether it had submissive sexual undertones in-keeping with the pedophilia rampant in the Catholic church, I just did it because it was tradition.”  You’re either an abject idiot, morally repugnant and dishonest, or both.  I’m going with both.

In the photos the Catholic priest is shown sitting on a battered armchair, wearing shorts and with some form of stick across his knees.

The pupils are shown kneeling around Father Kozyra as they watch each other lick cream from his bare knee.

Other photos show the students crawling up the stairs in a single file on their hands and knees.

You’re the principal at a Catholic school for fuck’s sake!  What did you hope to achieve with this practice?

You’d think that the depraved man with the cane would be the ultimate proof that religious faith does not cure immorality, which he may be.  But he is certainly not the definitive example of how religion can wither a person’s moral instincts.  That example comes from some of their parents.

While some people have expressed shock over the pictures, which were posted on the school’s website, the parents of some pupils have come out in support of the priest.

In a letter of defence they claimed that the whipped cream was actually shaving foam and nobody was forced to eat it.

Yes, because it’s the whipped cream that’s inappropriate, not the licking it from a old man’s knee or the crawling around on all fours and kneeling.

The parental instinct is to protect one’s child.  When even one parent would sooner defend their church when it does something like this, faith has truly subverted our humanity.

These people are just sick.  God can have them, because any decent society shouldn’t want them.

    How does the possibility that it was shaving cream and not whipped cream count as a defense?!

    • Rowan

      Yeah…at least whipped cream is edible…their best defense is that no, it wasnt food they were licking off him, it was something potentially toxic? (tbh, i really dont know whats in shaving cream, but I imagine it can’t be good on a stomach…source: it made the kid in The Stuff throw up)

    • Rowan

      Although, to be fair…Its a Catholic priest…it could have easily been something worse he was making them lick off of him…

  • Art Vandelay

    Awful. Who the hell wears dress socks with sports sandals?

    • Bob Saget

      Only in Poland

        or Ireland, or Italy, or France or the US…this sort of thing is pretty universal with catholic priests.

      I do?

    In a couple of pictures it looks like the shirt of one of the girls is very wet in some areas. This may indicate that something else happened before the hands and knees march up the stairs.

    Here’s the thing I keep thinking. Even if you set aside the creepy sexual undertones? Pretty hard to do — especially in the context of the widespread child rape scandals in the church.. But for the sake of argument, let’s pretend that this doesn’t have creepy sexual undertones that are so freaking obvious it’s stretching it to call them “undertones.”

    Even without the creepy sexual undertones, this is revolting. The whole idea of getting young teenagers — children, still, really — to show groveling subservience to religion in such a literal, flagrant way… it’s revolting.

    • John Horstman

      Exactly this.

  • Loqi

    WTF with the shaving cream? What does that have to do with anything? “In defense of the priest, the school pointed out that the priest was not wearing a baseball cap and his favorite color is blue.”

  • Baal

    Holy shit that’s disturbing. Also why is the priest holding a stick?

  • Steve

    What the fuck was the point of that “ritual”?

    • Loqi

      To show the teens that in order to be good Catholics, they need to bow and scrape in deference to authority. Oh, and so that and old pervert can get his jollies. Mostly the latter.

  • sqlrob

    OK, so what’s Ted’s defense of this going to be?

  • Glodson

    What an asshole. I can understand that some people are insane, abusive and sick assholes who have no business in being in any position of authority. But this actually pissed me off even more: “the parents of some pupils have come out in support of the priest.” I don’t care if you are religious or not, Catholic or not, just because some goddamned priest did this doesn’t make it a defensible act. This should be something we can all agree on, that the act, the hideous ritual, is one that should not exist.

      FYI to the other readers of this blog, this is not an atheist book.

      Book description on Amazon:

      ” This book is rendered to the Body of Christ as an alarm and a challenge against attitudes within the Church that has watered down, and in many cases redefined, what it is to be Christ-like.

      The reader will find strong confrontation for both leadership as well as contending against some traditional embraces that do not edify the Church. The aim of this literary work is to submit the concept of effective structuring in the local church assembly as it should reflect the order of things that served as a shadow of things to come.

      In all, it is the desire of the author to contribute to “”solution””. I found it a joy to share these words, these pages in knowing that the reader of this book will leave inspired to do something greater than the work that inspired them.

      The author found salvation under the ministry of one late Charles Henry Taliefero in the year of Nineteen hundred ninty-two. Since salvation, the author began to venture into his call to the ministry of preaching the word of GOD in 1993 and is presently an associate minister at Christ Temple Apostolic Church in Gary, Indiana. “

    What…the…fuck?

  • Anonymous Atheist

    Wow.

    A noteworthy sentence in the article:

    “While some people have expressed shock over the pictures, which were posted on the school’s website,”

    Hmm, I wonder how that happened. Either an insider supportive of the practice actually thought these photos would get a positive reaction, or an insider secretly unsupportive of the practice shared them hoping for the negative reaction, or else an insider really screwed up and posted them accidentally among a batch of innocuous photos.

    “… the parents of some pupils have come out in support of the priest.”

    Wow.

    There’s far too many people in the article’s comments who agree, too. For example, one says “It’s a cultural thing. Daily Mail leave it alone.”

    Yeah, this looks like a fine cultural tradition. Forced crawling up stairs on their hands and knees is bad enough without all the other stuff, but at least that has some cultural standing, as I think similar actions are popular on a voluntary basis among Catholics on some shrine pilgrimages. But the licking of whatever cream off of priest knees, and also the unmentioned bonus of having some sort of junk drawn on their faces with who-knows-what, is just completely bizarre.

    Also notice the excuses of some apologists that this was all some sort of voluntary fun is falsified in the very first photo, as one student holds down another student to force them to lick.

    It’s sad to me that people are so shocked by this, and it has become such a large story even in our part of the world, When right in our own country horrible things are being done to children in the name of “tradition”…. There are Jewish Mohels Sucking the fresh wounds on infant boys circumcised penis’. Yes, you read that right. There is a disgusting *tradition* (people sure love to through that word around to make their travesties seem, in some way, legitimate) the ceremony of metzitza bipeh has caused numerous new born babies rigt in NYC to contract the herpes virus. Causing the death of at least one of those poor innocent babies. http://healthland.time.com/2012/06/07/how-11-new-york-city-babies-contracted-herpes-through-circumcision/ While I do find adolescents licking off whatever it may be, from a grown mans legs appalling, I wish that more Americans and Canadians -the world really- would open their eyes to the disgusting religious “traditions” happening right in our own backyard. A man placing a childs genitals into his mouth for any other reason.. Without “god” saying it’s okay, would be considered paedophilia!! It’s disgusting that parents are allowing their children to be part of these barbaric acts of abuse.

It’s disgusting that parents are allowing their children to be part of these barbaric acts of abuse, and what does the state do? Passed a law saying that “parents must sign a consent stating they know the dangers”. Are you kidding me?? This is child abuse! A damn consent form? Put these sicko freaks behind bars where they belong. Any parent willing to “consent” to their new son literally being sucked off by an old man, that just cut the tip of his dick off needs to be sterilised. Period.
