Retired Roman Catholic Cardinal Roger Mahony defended his tattered legacy in a sharply worded letter to his successor, a day after Archbishop Jose Gomez stripped him of his administrative duties and bowed to a court order to release thousands of pages of confidential files on sexually abusive priests.
In a letter posted Friday on his personal blog, Mahony challenged Gomez for publicly shaming him and said he developed policies to safeguard children after taking over in 1985, despite being unequipped to deal with the molester priests he inherited.
Mahony had apologized two weeks ago after another release of similar files showed he and other top aides worked behind the scenes to protect the church from the growing scandal, keep offending clerics out of state and prevent public disclosure of sex crimes committed by priests....
The Roman Catholic religious system has always been a magnet for pedophile, homosexual priests. Why? Because it was a secret club in which these types of crimes would go unpunished. Reports of priestly pedophilia would reach superiors who were also pedophiles who would in turn just shuffle their buddies around the cou try. More often than not though, the crimes would go unreported by the child or parents because the priests were/are next to god...so very holy. These days, the seminaries are way down in attendence...why? Because the homosexual pedophile club has been disbanded, or at least has travelled even further underground. "we can't go into seminary now because we no longer have the freedom to indulge in our lusts"
By the way, start allowing the non pedophile priests to marry already before you begin having issues with them burning in their lusts.
