It has been said in the past that the Catholic church spends more money settling child molestation cases than it does on charity. Well, add another log to that money pit because today two Roman Catholic Church groups in Delaware settled two separate pedophile priest sex abuse cases involving 39 victims over twenty years for $102.2 million. The settlement also requires that they release the names and private records of the twelve molesty priests involved in the case.
Keep in mind though that the Catholic groups initially challenged the suit saying that the statute of limitations for prosecuting child abuse charges against them had already passed. The Delaware Supreme Court rejected their challenge in February which brings us to today’s. Hopefully the humiliation of these priests and the knowledge of their handling by Catholic officials will give prosecutors, child abuse experts, and the decent Catholics a way to reduce the church’s continued sexual exploitation of children, especially since they try to pin such pedophilia on gays rather than the corrupt practices of their own pedophiliac leadership and attempts to cover up such incidents.
Even better would be criminal charges as in Philadelphia. These men are CRIMINALS!!
Yeah, why aren’t they charged with crimes? Statute of Limitations my ass. Add rape and child molestation to the list of crimes to which the statute does not apply, and, while we’re at it, bring the Poop(no, not a typo) and his cronies up on charges of crimes against humanity for their part in the AIDS crisis. Hell, just dismantle the whole RCC. The world would be a much better place without it.

I used to date a Jesuit. He was the craziest son-of-a-bitch I’ve ever met and all of his Jesuits pals were just as fucked up. Something about the Bible, the Baby Jesus and sucking cock just makes them nutcases.
I guess the Pope had to sell off some of his jewelry. NOT. Now you know where the money you put in the basket goes.
It’s sad that these priest put the catholic faith to shame along with all the bigots.

As we all lament how horrible this is…
HOW HAS NO ONE THAT PARTICIPATED IN THE (ON-GOING) COVER-UP NOT BEEN SENT TO JAIL?!!
ARE KATHOLIC LAW ENFORCEMENT FORCED TO RECUSE THEMSELVES FROM THESE CASES? HOW DOES THIS COMPLETELY CORRUPT ORGANIZATION CONTINUE TO FUNCTION W/ ANY KIND OF SUPPORT IN THE US???
Is there a Most Egregious website w/ photos of offenders similar to the FBI’s Most Wanted? Is there a ‘debt-clock’ that totals output of damages payments?
Papa Ratzi moves them all the Vatican, a separate ‘nation’, to avoid prosecution. Bastards, all of them; and this while they take out FULL PAGE ADS in the NYT advocating against equality for gay people. Dirty F’n bastards.
The definition of a destructive religious cult is like alcoholism-if booze controls you instead of the other way around you are an alcoholic.
The Watchtower society Jehovah’s Witnesses as an example is not benevolent and won’t let you leave their organization in peace.
If they try to ruin your reputation and break up your family for trying to get out then they are a cult!
Please examine the Jehovah’s Witnesses pedophiles go door to door and come on our property.
Many court documents and news events prove that Jehovah’s Witnesses suppress evidence when a child comes forward with allegations of molestation within the congregation.Whenever you surrender your logic and reason to anyone who asks you to trust them because they know better it’s possibly a cult.
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck….
@Danny Haszard: Add Calvinism, Southern Baptism, and Pentecostalism into the mix. I know people who have a lot of scars from leaving those cults.
Seriously, you took that pledge to not have sex, don’t go screwing up children’s lives because you’re horny.
