Explosive Trial Exposes Messy Record on Sex Crimes in Philadelphia Archdiocese
A string of Roman Catholic priests testified Wednesday in a landmark clergy-abuse case, saying they reported fellow priests to the archdiocese after finding them with pornography or in unhealthy relationships with children.
The priests, uncomfortably, are prosecution witnesses in the trial of a longtime supervisor in the Philadelphia archdiocese, Monsignor William Lynn. The former secretary for clergy is charged with endangering children by allegedly helping the church cover up abuse complaints.
The Rev. Joseph Okonski told jurors Wednesday that he found pornographic magazines and videos, and a sexually explicit letter to a seventh-grade boy, in another priest‚Äôs bedroom in 1995....

"Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds. " -2 Cor 2:15
Thus, Satan uses blatant in-your-face wicked, badly-dressed, sinner pastors and bishops for his evil ends. After all, the Father of Lies masquerades as an angel of light by hurting innocent young children. Otherwise how else could he best market his Hell to these 1,000s of dear children, their families, friends and associates? The Devil is just re-warming his same tired lies in our day.
Sounds like another dumb idol, dead body relic worshipping Roman Catholic trying to make a point again. The papist cannot read Scripture so the Vatican Magisterium tells them to believe in idolatry, iconolatry, maryolatry and blasphemy. The gullible and Bible ignorant followers bow to these pagan rites and practices and call it religion.
Hab 2:18 What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols? 19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.
No wonder the article reports quote; "A string of Roman Catholic priests testified Wednesday in a landmark clergy-abuse case, saying they reported fellow priests to the archdiocese after finding them with pornography or in unhealthy relationships with children."

against all sinners till they believe on God's Son, through whom they can receive eternal life.
John 3:31-36 31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. 32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. 33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. 34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. 35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Mark 9 42 "And whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea. 43 "And if your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire, 44 where THEIR WORM DOES NOT DIE, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED. ---NASB
1. Were there grievous scandals in the early Church? 2. Jesus handpicked twelve, personally-trained Apostles. What scandalous behaviors did they exhibit? (Betrayed Christ (1) Mark 14:43-44; Denied Christ (1) Mark 14:66-72; Abandoned Christ in the garden (12) Mark 14:50; Doubted Christ's resurrection (1) John 20:24-25). 3. If there were scandals in the early Church and scandals in the Apostolic circle, should we be surprised if there are scandals in the Church today? 4. Is sexual sin caused by celibacy, by marriage or by human weakness in a sex-soaked culture? Is it possible to live a chaste life, either married or single? (See Matthew 19:26, Philippians 4:13, 1 Corinthians 10:13, 2 Corinthians 12:9.) 5. Was Jesus celibate? Was St. Paul celibate? (See 1 Corinthians 7:8.) According to the Bible, is celibacy a good thing? (See Matthew 19:10-12, 1 Corinthians 7:32-35; CCC 1618-1620.) 6. Is Christ's Church made up only of the pure or does it also contain sinners? (Read the parable of the wheat and the tares [Matthew 13:24-30, 36-42] and the parable of the dragnet [Matthew 13:47-50] realizing that the "kingdom" in Matthew's Gospel is the Church-Matthew 16:18-19. Also see CCC 827.)
