Philly seeks to prove pattern of priest pedophiles



Published: Fri, October 28, 2011 @ 2:45 p.m.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Prosecutors seeking to convict four Roman Catholic priests in a pedophilia case want to use evidence of other sex-assault complaints and priest transfers in the Philadelphia archdiocese.

Prosecutors have filed a motion to include relevant conduct at the high-profile March trial.

Sixty-year-old Monsignor William Lynn is the first U.S. church official charged with child endangerment for allegedly transferring predator priests so they could abuse new victims.

Two priests, an ex-priest and a teacher are charged in the same case with raping two boys.

Prosecutors hope to show Monsignor Lynn had a pattern of transferring known predators, and that priests “had the opportunity and cover” to abuse minors.

Defense lawyers cannot comment on today’s filing because of a gag order. They have a month to file their response.

The infection of homosexuality upon mankind is propagated by indoctrination . No matter what walk of life they come from those who are afflicted must not be allowed to come in contact with children .

Well cambridge . . . ..

Isolation from children is the answer for all homosexuals . Not being a Priest doesn't make a homosexual special or exempt . . ..

Stan, "better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

Well fools . . . ..

HOMOSEXUALITY is the issue along with the INDOCTRINATION of our young into HOMOSEXUALITY . Let's not sidetrack the issue . When these perverts are caught I don't care what line of work brings them into contact with our young . Isolating them from our young is indeed in vogue along with some generous quality incarceration .

So, do tell me under what cicumstances should these perverts be allowed to do their thing ? How about the fellow who owned the Tornado Bowling Alley ? Do you feel that he is being persecuted ?
