One in 14 Catholic priests accused of abuse in Australia
Seven percent of Catholic priests were accused of abusing children in Australia between 1950 and 2010 but the allegations were never investigated, "shocking and indefensible" data showed Monday during an inquiry into paedophilia in the church.
The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse heard that 4,444 alleged incidents of pedophilia were reported to church authorities and in some dioceses, more than 15 percent of priests were perpetrators.
Australia ordered the Royal Commission in 2012 after a decade of growing pressure to investigate allegations of child abuse across the country, with the inquiry now in its final phase after four years of hearings....

What better sources than to hear things such as this from those who were deep within the system, and privy to so much more than the laity, etc. I know he didn't go into specifics, but his comments were hard hitting, and that's only from a priest. Imagine what a bishop, etc., could reveal from even deeper inside. What's mind boggling is not only that most of the doctrines are clearly and probably false, and that should be more than enough, but even truth revealed from ex-priests and others who spent lifetimes within the system just don't seem to get many to budge, as they seem to just shrug everything off as if nothing, whatsoever, is any big deal.

Dave, The RC "church" is a criminal organization using the religion of Christ as a front. Utterly contemptible. Same thing in Ireland. RC "church" cop collusion.
Catholic clergy ‚Äėabused children for decades in County Donegal‚Äô Henry McDonald, Ireland correspondent / guardian.co.uk, 29 August 2011 Link: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/aug/29/catholic-clergy-children-donegal-report
Report is expected to claim police were complicit in cover-up County Donegal in Ireland is about to have its bucolic image shattered by a report into how paedophiles, both clergy and laity, abused children for decades.
An investigation into clerical sex abuse in the Catholic diocese of Raphoe in County Donegal is about to report its findings, which are expected to be damning. Meanwhile, new evidence has emerged from victims of a parallel paedophile ring operating in the same Gaelic-speaking corner of the Irish Republic.
A number of survivors of abuse have told the Guardian that lay members of the church as well as priests sexually exploited them for years in the county. And as with the expected conclusion of the report into Raphoe, they say the national police service, the Garda, was complicit in a culture of cover-up that allowed the perpetrators to carry on abusing the abuse
Ryan tried. And my sister is now against all things god. My brother and 4 sisters were all raised full on, full blown Roman Catholics. None remained cultists. My brother is dead, 2 sisters saved, 2 not. Amen. I was sought of lucky, mum started attending the seventh day Adventists, lol what a ride that was. That was years ago now, mum is saved Amen. She hasn't had any contact with sda cult for 30 odd years. My Oldman was an ardent Roman Catholic, then in 73 he wanted answers about changed bulldust from the Pope regarding saints and fish in Friday's, obviously he got nothing but lies. He never attended church again. Broke his neck and was a quad when I 13, when he died in 2007, he made me get a Roman Catholic priest to do the whole last rite thing, shame really , but Amen.
Former policeman Denis Ryan receives a formal apology from Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton over child abuse cases he worked on. ¬† When former policeman Denis Ryan walked in to meet present Chief Commissioner, Graham Ashton, he knew his name would never appear on the honour board, although he is a hero who was prepared to sacrifice his career on a point of principle.He refused to buckle when his bosses wanted him to ignore a paedophile priest and then was hounded from the job in a conspiracy that many believe went all the way to the chief commissioner's office.

Dave, I know the RC "church" persists in their reprehensible cover up of crimes committed by their homo/pedo priests/bishops.
An Australian detective's testimony: Child abuse royal commission: Victoria Police admits 'Catholic mafia' covered up allegations of abuse / 8 Dec 2015 Denis Ryan at the child abuse Royal Commission More than four decades after former Mildura police officer Denis Ryan was stopped from investigating allegations of child sexual abuse by a Catholic priest, Victoria Police has admitted a conspiracy to cover up the crimes went right to the top. Mr Ryan detailed to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse how his attempt to investigate allegations against Monsignor John Day in the 1970s was thwarted by what he describes as a "Catholic mafia" within the force

@Dave . . beggars belief! George Pell's spokesman says Senate motion calling for his return is a 'political stunt' / The Guardian /2/8/2017 A spokesman for Cardinal George Pell at the Vatican in Rome has criticised a motion that passed the Australian Senate calling on him to return to assist police with child sexual abuse investigations as a ‚Äúpolitical stunt‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúpathetic point-scoring‚ÄĚ. On Wednesday afternoon the Greens senator Rachel Siewert put forward a motion acknowledging the 4,444 alleged victims of child sexual abuse by the Catholic church in Australia between 1980 and 2015 uncovered by the child sexual abuse royal commission. Victoria police are investigating allegations against Pell and last year travelled to Rome to interview him. A brief of evidence was handed to Victoria‚Äôs Department of Public Prosecutions, which is still considering the file. Pell has consistently denied allegations against him. The motion ‚Äúnotes the allegations of criminal misconduct against Cardinal George Pell have been forwarded to the Victorian Office of Public Prosecutions by the Victoria police‚ÄĚ and called on Pell to ‚Äúreturn to Australia to assist Victorian police and the Office of Public Prosecutions with their investigations into these matters‚ÄĚ. The motion was supported by the Senate.
Please note, only Pope Richard 1st would come here with a sick mindset. Only a pedophile defends the actions of a pedophile.

At least they would have gotten some money out of them and cut into the Mafia's take. But, no, the Paedophile Newpopes decided to run a Paedophilia Ring to service inhouse Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters. For fifty years this moral corruption that cries out to Heaven for retribution, as the Scriptures put it, has been going on -- and is still going on." (end quote)

Now for the hard stats/facts of the carnage wrought by Roman Catholic priests / bishops in the US. Source: Online Article: Data on the Crisis ‚Äď the Human Toll ‚Äď Source: Bishop Accountability
How many bishops have been accused of abuse of minors? 19 bishops in the United States have been accused of sexual abuse
How many bishops have enabled abuse?
Approximately two-thirds of sitting U.S. bishops were alleged in 2002 to have kept accused priests in ministry or moved accused priests to new assignments.
The best available study of bishops accused of enabling abuse is Two-Thirds of Bishops Let Accused Priests Work, by Brooks Egerton and Reese Dunklin (Dallas Morning News, June 12, 2002), with its table Bishops' Record in Cases of Accused Priests. We are currently reviewing that table and updating it. In 2010 we revised a spreadsheet showing the status of each bishop analyzed by Egerton and Dunklin. It shows that:
Of the 109 bishops identified in the Dallas Morning News survey, only 33 bishops (30%) were still managing the same diocese. Of the others: 12 had resigned, 45 had retired, 15 had been promoted, and 3 had died in office.
