NJ priest sex-abuse case settled for just over $1M



Published: Tue, August 16, 2011 @ 4:30 p.m.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Lawyers for five men who say they were abused by a New Jersey priest when they were boys say they have reached a seven-figure settlement with the church.

Attorney Mitchell Garabedian says the Roman Catholic Diocese of Trenton will pay just over $1 million to five former altar boys at the Incarnation Church in Ewing.

The men say the Rev. Ronald Becker molested them in the 1970s and 1980s while they were 11 to 16 years old. Becker died in 2009. Lawyers claim one boy was molested about 150 times.

Garabedian calls the settlement a major step in the right direction for the child sex abuse scandal that has rocked the church.

The diocese did not have an immediate response, but says it is preparing a statement.

Homosexuals have no business being anywhere around children . They seek to indoctrinate all those who they encounter .

Wow Stan...usually I agree with your posts, but this is so stereotypical it makes me laugh! Just because you are gay does NOT mean you will go on to molest children. Totally ignorant comment!

momma, if you have read any of stan's posts regarding gay marriage or anything of that type he fully believes that all gay people are child molesters and all child molesters are gay. I'm not saying that to make it funny, he REALLY believes that. rediculous.

Well I agree With Stan Homosexuals, Should Not Be Allowed Near Kids. And I very Well Have a Right To Say That. , My Cousin & I was Both Molested by a Male Fag, we are both Girls,,And I was 5 yrs old. Then when i was 12-13 another Fag tried stuff, but this time i wasn't taking it. Gay People Should Never Ever Be Around Kids And The Catholic Church Are Guilty by upholding that sick behavior . Catholic Churches are Rich, Walk in any of there Churches, They Must have a Service for The Gays to Regroup there sick Sins. Men was Not Meant for Men, Nor was Woman meant for Woman, That's Gross & sick ,

And Id Like To Add One More Thing, My Nephew Is Gay, when he was 13 yrs old he molested 2 baby sisters, and his Male Baby cousin, The Cousin told his Mother What TC was Doing To Him. He Was Put In a Kids Prison Till He Was 21 Yrs Old. he would not admit what he done so he never received counseling. But they cant be rehabilitated anyway once a child molester always a child molester.. Homosexuals Runs On my Dad's Side, The Spore of Satan And I'm not Religious. Everybody Ive known or read about were from Homosexuals Touching Children. So I will Stand behind Stan on this One. But the Best Part About Myself And My Cousin S.P. we Got our revenge Our Molester Died OF AID many yrs later., Best Thing That Could Of Happened To Him.

The curse of homosexuality upon mankind propagates itself with contact . Once infected with this degrading lifestyle they become addicts . The addiction can be cured . Like any other addiction it will take time and effort .

The best way to stop the cycle is to sever contact between homosexuals and our young . This is a no brainer .

Those of us who preach against allowing homosexuality to proliferate come under constant attack by the homosexual crowd . My advice to them is, fight on for what will destroy you and don't complain as it is happening .

Smart folks have moved on from the Catholic Church and their pedophile traditions of secret support. Don't give the church a dime to pay for this kind of pedophile actions.
