3 Franciscan friars surrender in child endangerment case

Thankfully these Catholic officials who enabled Br Stephen Baker to sexually abuse so many kids are being criminally charged. Child predators need to be kept far away from children forever, but those who enable and cover up these crimes need to be held accountable also, so that kids will be safe today.

Let's hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed by Br Stephen Baker, Fr Cletus Adams, Fr Reginald Krakovsky, Fr Raymond Waldruff, Fr Kenneth LaPan, Fr Martin Brady, Br Christian Neetz, Fr Adalbert Wolski, will find the courage to come forward and contact law enforcement no matter how long ago it happened. You can also contact SNAP for support.
Silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others.

3 former Franciscan leaders charged

Let's hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed will find the courage to come forward and call the AG hot line or law enforcement no matter how long ago it happened. You can also contact SNAP for support.

Youngstown Diocese responds to allegations made by Road to Recovery

--Quoted: “We have no secret archives. There are no secret files on good and bad priests,” --

What? It's canon law that every diocese keeps a secret archives..!

--AND The chancellor said it was not appropriate for the bishop to discuss legal issues and ongoing litigation.

It's time for the Ohio Attorney General to investigate the Youngstown diocese for child sex crimes.
Victims wish for the full truth to be exposed so that no other child is sexually abused. Let's hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed will find the courage to come forward and contact law enforcement no matter how long ago it happened.

Poland mother who says her son’s suicide resulted from being sexually abused by a priest at JFK demands transparency

The Youngstown diocese needs to be investigated by the Ohio Attorney General, just like the grand jury investigation in the Altoona-Johnstown diocese.
The cover up of sex crimes is not unique to just the Altoona-Johnstown diocese.

Victims wish for the full truth to be exposed so that no other child is sexually abused. Let's hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed will find the courage to come forward and contact law enforcement no matter how long ago it happened.

State investigation of sex abuse in Youngstown Diocese sought

Yes, the Ohio Attorney General needs to investigate the cover up and enabling of child sex crimes within the Youngstown Diocese.
The cover up of sex crimes is not unique to just the Altoona-Johnstown diocese.
Those who enable and cover up these sex crimes need to be held accountable, otherwise children will never be safe from being dealt this life sentence of trauma and pain.
Victims wish for the full truth to be exposed so that no other child is sexually abused. Let's hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed will find the courage to come forward and contact law enforcement no matter how long ago it happened.

Youngstown pastor accused of sexual imposition

It takes a lot of courage to speak up about being sexually abused. but let's hope that any others who may have knowledge or may have been harmed by James Callozzo, will find the courage to come forward and contact law enforcement no matter how long ago it happened.

Pope creates tribunal for negligence to protect

We thank the papal commission for pushing the Pope to hold bishops accountable for covering up sex crimes against children and vulnerable adults.
But until bishops are fired, demoted and removed from their powerful positions ( not just accepting their resignations ) we are very skeptical about this new tribunal.

We are still waiting for concrete action from the Pope to punish bishops who have and who continue to cover up child sex crimes. Only then will there be hope that children will be safe today. That would one step toward prevention.

Yet this can not be the only step toward protecting kids. Those who cover up sex crimes also must to be held accountable by local law enforcement.
The church officials should support , not oppose, the reforms of secular laws so that predators and those who cover up their crimes can be prosecuted.
We have little hope that children can be safe from being sexually abused until this happens.

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.

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.
