MONSTERS IN OUR MIDST - Stephen Baker VICTIMIZES ONE MORE TIME

By Louie b. Free (Contact)


Published January 26, 2013

They never stop...they never miss an opportunity to re-victimize.

They ALWAYS take just one more shot...damage one more time....one more awful memory...and justice???? NEVER !

Paedophiles are monsters, monsters in our midst .
Sadly, we think monsters should look like Lon Chaney when his mask was pulled, Freddy Krueger or, for the younger readers, someone from one of the recent zombie series, but they don't.

They don't 'look' like the monsters that they are.  They're  regular looking men and women like Jerry Sandusky,Philip Koufos, Stephen Baker, etc. ...and they don't stop. They re-victimize by blaming the victim , and in Baker's case, take one last stab at the victimS' heart without allowing ANY justice.

Oh, sure, the faithful can believe there's some 'higher court' operated by hallo-wearing wing-ed ones or a lower court operated by horned, pointed-tailed, cloven-hoofed creatures that will do...well, something. Others can believe that somehow reincarnation's the answer, but the victims STILL get re-victimized.

This particular vicious monster, Stephan Baker, was reached by WKBN/WYTV earlier this month:

...Baker, reached at about 9:45 a.m. Wednesday in his room at St. Bernadine’s monastery in Newry, Pa., about seven miles south of Altoona, said he was shocked when alerted of the accusations in a brief phone interview with the newsroom.
“I’m flabbergasted,” Baker said. “I’ll have to ask my superiors if I can say anything.”
Baker then hung up and failed to return the call....



(flabbergast:
surprise (someone) greatly; astonish. from Oxford)

More lies, more victimization.

When Baker committed suicide, he victimized AGAIN. Once AGAIN, striking and leaving.  Baker knows...well, knew what most of us know - he had victimized MANY more than we'll ever know. Many of Baker's victims will never come forward. I only hope that those victimized will be  able to stop re-victimizing themselves with their painful memories, memories created beyond their control, memories created, perpetrated by a monster, a monster that struck one more time, a monster that CHOSE to try to tear out one more piece of his victim's  hearts and souls, as he took the cowardly way out........

Let us hope that Stephen Baker was truly guilty and that guilt drove him to his premature demise.

It's a tough matter. These offenders are a varied lot. It is easy to say they all continue to offend. Statistically, a fair number do, but some do not.

We must learn to dislike the actions of people and not the people themselves. What causes such malfunction in a human? Their own victimization often. A victim who becomes an offender and passes the curse along.

No free passes here. We need to do better to weed misdoers like this out quicker and earlier. To the victims, it is a tough road to recovery. But it is a road worth traveling. The weight gets lighter as the calendar pages turn.

In response to the emergence of the clergy abuse crisis in the Roman Catholic Church in 2002, one priest advocate and another priest survivor/advocate collaborated in the development of a “first-stage service” called Rescue&Recovery International, Inc. ...it has provided emotional, psychological, financial, and spiritual assistance to survivors as they attempt to recover from the effects of having been sexually abused by members of the clergy.

Bishop Mark Bartchak of the Altoona-Johnstown "...Diocese said in a statement Saturday he was saddened by the news of Baker's death but did not comment further, citing pending legal action. A message left for the Rev. Patrick Quinn, the head of Baker's order, the Third Order Regular Franciscans, was not returned...."

As a responder in Vindy City, In the County of the Land of Mahoning, I respond to this article regally and put my thoughts into a post, legally.

You see, and I have got to state this meagerly, to be, you see, yes priests, the stupid priests, are morally, ethically, spiritually, physically, positively, absolutely, undeniably and, reliably, a big part of the problem!

I DO love when people make grammar-based attacks and then make their own mistakes (proving perfection is much more difficult than it looks). They always use the same ruse: I meant to do that!

Yeah. Sure. Just admit you, too, are a flawed human and quit riding side-saddle on your own high horse.

Sheesh. Or as the kids say, SMH.

To Mark Sweetwood

I do not think you are an idiot Mark , not even a (IDIOT!) as someone so politely put it . But it would be nice if you made it so readers would only get one vote a day in the poles.
