Predator priests shuffled around globe

Bradley Brooks and Alessandra Rizzo (AP) write (4/15/10) …

  • There he was, five decades later, the priest who had raped Joe Callander in Massachusetts. The photo in the Roman Catholic newsletter showed him with a smile across his wrinkled face, near-naked Amazon Indian children in his arms and at his feet. The Rev. Mario Pezzotti was working with children and supervising other priests in Brazil.
  • It’s not an isolated example.
  • In an investigation spanning 21 countries across six continents, The Associated Press found 30 cases of priests accused of abuse who were transferred or moved abroad. Some escaped police investigations. Many had access to children in another country, and some abused again.
  • A priest who admitted to abuse in Los Angeles went to the Philippines, where U.S. church officials mailed him checks and advised him not to reveal their source.
  • A priest in Canada was convicted of sexual abuse and then moved to France, where he was convicted of abuse again in 2005.
  • Another priest was moved back and forth between Ireland and England, despite being diagnosed as a pederast, a man who commits sodomy with boys.

LMW COMMENT …

Transferring pedophile priests has been the policy of the Catholic Church for decades, in absolute violation of criminal law. Every Catholic who has paid the least bit of attention to what was going on knows this to be true.

The monsignors, bishops and cardinals who carried out and condoned these transfers, and who did not report criminals to the police, should now be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, including Joseph Ratzinger when he was an archbishop, knew of these violations, and performed criminal acts of cover-up.

For Ratzinger (aka Pope Benedict XVI) to claim that he is not responsible because the bishops don’t work for him is a lying travesty. For him to hide behind the fake country he claims he is head of is nothing but another evasion.

Ratzinger is a liar and a criminal who should be put on trial, and if convicted, sent to jail.
