Pope urged to deal with bishops who fail to protect kids

Pope Francis is showing his true self when it comes to protecting innocent children within this secret archaic system. Sadly he chooses to empower those who enable child predators, rather than take decisive actions to get the child sex abuse stopped.
The sex abuse and cover up within the church hierarchy throughout the world is still going on to this day. Cardinals and bishops are still not removing accused predator clergy, and they are not reporting to law enforcement. Their so called "zero tolerance" policy is not being followed by the bishops who created it. They don't have to, because there is no punishment to force the bishops to change their ways of protecting their power and the institution rather than protecting innocent children.

Former teacher gets 10 years for child porn charges

Viewing, possessing, distributing, and/or creating child porn is a serious crime, and for good reason. The children in the photos are being sexually used and abused. This causes lifelong pain and suffering for those innocent children. Also, it's not uncommon for those who do possess child porn to sexually abuse children. So let's hope that if anyone has knowledge or may have been harmed by Paul Rektor, will find the courage to contact law enforcement no matter how long ago it happened.
Your silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others.

Mooney students’ rally supports fire principal

quoted: "At this time, the Mooney Family needs to heal and push forward in a positive new direction.” --

So how can they heal if they don't know why Young was fired? And since John Young said he wants Bishop Murry to explain why he was fired, then why the big secrecy from the church officials? We agree, Bishop Murry needs to explain why the principal was removed.

Unfortunately, given the long and troubling history of secrecy and deceit by Youngstown Catholic officials, we hope that current and former school and staff members will find the courage to do what Youngstown's bishop won't do: tell parishioners, parents and the public more about what's going on at Mooney High School. They deserve to know the truth.

Fired Mooney principal says supporters deserve explanation from the school

Nothing inappropriate led to principal change at Mooney, president says

I'm not saying that he did anything inappropriate,
I am responding to the diocese statement in regard to this.
Unfortunately, given the long and troubling history of secrecy and deceit by Youngstown Catholic officials, we find it hard to believe the claims by church and school officials that the now-removed principal did nothing inappropriate.

Nothing inappropriate led to principal change at Mooney, president says

This leaves a ton of unanswered questions. Vague responses coming from the Youngstown diocese only create more problems, especially when a principle is suddenly removed in the middle of the school year.
Let's hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed by anyone at Cardinal Mooney highschool, will find the courage to come forward and contact law enforcement, no matter how long ago it happened.

Settlement with Pa. victims of ex-Warren JFK priest totals $8 million

These very brave victims are to be commended for their courage and determination to get help and expose serial child predator, Br.Stephen Baker. We hope they feel some sense of justice and can start to heal.

This case just goes to show how dangerous child predators can be, plus how many innocent kids can be harmed by just one predator and several church officials who cover up these sex crimes. Sadly the sex abuse and cover up within the church hierarchy throughout the world is still going on to this day. Cardinals and bishops are still not removing accused predator clergy, and they are still not reporting to law enforcement. Their so called "zero tolerance" policy is not being followed by the bishops who created it. They don't have to, because there is no punishment to force the bishops to change their ways of protecting their power and the institution rather than protecting innocent children.
So let's hope that any others who may have knowledge or may have been harmed by Br.Stephen Baker, will come forward, get help, and contact law enforcement no matter how long ago it happened.
Sex abuse thrives in secrecy and secret systems that allow it to continue to this day. Your silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others.

100 interviewed in sexual abuse probe of ex-coach, -editor

These victims are to be commended for coming forward about being sexually abused. Thankfully because of news coverage about this case, more victims are now speaking up which can help the sheriff to be able to prosecute.
Something to keep in mind-
Child predators are very cunning and manipulative. They know every trick on how to groom, threaten, lie, and put the fear of god into their victims and
sometimes even their family members. They also appear to do a lot of goods things, they can be very charismatic and you may think they would never harm a child. They have to be this way, in order to not get caught and to continue to abuse. They devote lots of time and energy building trust with their victims by giving them money and gifts. They tend to make the child feel that they are special and loved.

Sexual predators are often powerful and well-loved, we must overcome the dangerous myth that because someone is successful or warm or caring, he or she couldn't have done that! It would be comforting if those who preyed on the vulnerable were obvious social misfits whose appearance would somehow set off alarm bells and give us the willies or the creeps. They rarely do. Usually, predators are among the last people we would suspect of sexually violating others. At a party, the predator isn't some oddball sitting alone in a corner because others feel uncomfortable with him. Most often, the predator is the guy throwing the party.

And we must stop thinking that because a man is old, that somehow he's automatically safe. It's just irresponsible to endanger kids by assuming an adult is harmless simply because he or she may be losing hair, wearing glasses, using hearing aids or walking with a cane. These can be signs of advancing age, but they are not signs that an individual is safe around kids.

It takes a ton of courage to come forward and take action about being sexually abused. This is not an easy thing to do, but it is extremely rare that a child predator has only one victim. Some have many. So let's hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed by coach Don McCormack, will find the courage to contact police, no matter when it happened. Your silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others. Children are safest when child predators are behind bars.
