U.S. PRIESTS FLEE TO CANADA

Canada has long bee a “dumping ground” for U.S. sex-abuser priests, who come here either to flee prosecution or are trasnferred by authorities hoping to keep things quiet, experts and victims say.  President Terry McKiernan of BishopAccountability.org, a website tracking clergy abuse in the United States, said the trasfer of accused priests across the Canadian border isn’t new:

“The church has for decades used political borders and diocesan borders to keep priests working and keep whatever facts that came out in previous cases secret from the people they’re currently working with.”  Are Canadian Catholics aware of this situation?

    I suspect it works in both directions. Wasn’t there a Canadian priest convicted in the US not too long ago?

    Are folks aware? I doubt it.

    I’ve known of paedophile/gay priests,and more so, brothers as far back as the late 30’s. I must remember that Jesus would have walked amongst these sinners.The problem is not with the church but with bosses in the church.For decades they did very little to point priests in the right direction to get help.But what would Jesus have thought about the pope appointing Cardinal Law to a desirous position in Rome in order to get him off the hot seat in Boston because he
    had shifted naughty priests to other parishes instead of getting them psychiactric help.Ssssh.Denial is still
    ongoing right at the top. I noticed that the pope said s short time ago that Catholics should not mix and pray with non-Catholics. We next see the pope standing in a mosque with chief mufti in Turkey, both of whom are mumbling something in what appeared to be an act of prayer.The Vatican clarified the situation by stating that they really weren’t sharing together but were standing side by side. Well I guess that explains it,at least he wasn’t sitting on the mufti’s lap.Have a nice sin.
