Brazilian Catholic Priest and Pedophile Hangs Himself in Jail

Brazilian Catholic Priest and Pedophile Hangs Himself in Jail August 9, 2016

A well-known Brazilian Catholic priest has hung himself with bed sheets in jail, according to Religion News Service. Bonifacio Buzzi (I will not call him reverend, as he is not worthy of reverence) was in jail following an arrest on Friday after accusations emerged that he molested two boys, aged 9 and 13.

buzzi_09012825This was not his first time behind bars.  Buzzi was recently released from prison after serving from 2007 to 2015 for child molestation, being convicted of performing oral sex on young boys.  Just typing that made me want to throw up.

If his name sounds familiar, it may be because Buzzi was mentioned at the end of the film Spotlight, the Academy Award winning film about the abuse in the Catholic Church in Boston.

Thank you, Bonifacio, for taking yourself out and saving Brazilian citizens the tax money they were going to have to pay for your room and board for the next 10+ years.  They’re already in rough shape from hosting the Olympics.

    Good. The trash takes itself out.

    • Jezebel’sOlderSister

      My money says that he had a little help.

        Now, now. Just because Satan left him some bedsheets…

  • Bob Jase

    Suicide is a sin deserving of eternal torment in hell according to Christian dogma. Oddly, child molestation isn’t considered a sin.

    • Sophia Sadek

      As someone initiated into the sacred mysteries of the One True Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, Buzzi must have been aware that eternal torment is a fabrication meant to keep the hoi polloi in line.

  • The_Wretched

    I have to wonder if the ‘suicide’ was assisted.

    • Proud blasphemere

      who cares a pedo died

      • The_Wretched

        Because suicide and murder aren’t the same thing. Acts can’t be judged but outcome alone.

        • Proud blasphemere

          The person who murdered a pedo should get their sentencing reduced in my opinion

          • lady_black

            Vigilante justice isn’t justice.

          • Proud blasphemere

            i think the parents of children who been raped by pedophiles might disagree

          • lady_black

            What makes you think so?

          • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

            Because beating a pedophile to death feels a lot more like justice than locking him up with cable tv and libraries and 3 squares a day, maybe?

      • Jezebel’sOlderSister

        Still doesn’t make it right — especially if the one committing the assistance is a “Christian.”

  • Sophia Sadek

    I know how you feel in not calling the guy reverend. When I refer to Paul of Tarsus, some folks double check to verify that I refer to “Saint” Paul. I remark that he was no saint.

    > I will not call him reverend, as he is not worthy of reverence

    Seems an appropriate designation to me. Like “youth minister” . . . as in “youth minister accused of molesting girls”.

    Example:

    Australia’s worst paedophile priest ‘molested every boy’ at school in Victoria, Australia

    Australia’s royal commission into child sex abuse was told that senior Church leaders were aware of the crimes of Father Gerald Ridsdale and an “evil” paedophile ring that he operated for decades.

    A royal commission into child sex abuse heard that Father Gerald Ridsdale abused more than 50 children over three decades, including all of the boys at the school in Mortlake.

    In 1971, each of the male teachers and the chaplain at the St Alipius primary school was molesting children.

    Philip Nagle, who was abused at the school, held up a photograph of his fourth grade class and said that twelve of the 33 boys had since committed suicide.

    Suicide or natural, doesn’t matter. He was Hellbound the first time he violated a child. And we welcome him with glee…we have such wonders to show him! (and he won’t like any of them, I guarantee!)
