Patrick J. Wall is an author of “Sex, Priests and Secret Codes,” a leading book on the 2000-year history of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.
The Real Horrendous and Nefarious Crime? Not Calling the Police It’s papal trivia time!
In light of the recent explosion of media coverage about the clergy sex abuse scandal, revelations about the inaction of bishops to stop offenders, and the full-scale global cover-up of the rape of hundreds of thousands of children, let’s take a little quiz. patrickjwall.wordpress.com/ ____________________________
Interview: April 21, 2010
Pt 1: Bishop's Man - Anna Maria Tremonti talks to Patrick Wall, a former Catholic Priest and Benedictine Monk. For several years, he was what's known as a "Fixer" in the Catholic Church. He was parachuted into parishes where the former Priest had been caught up in a sexual abuse scandal. He eventually quit the church and now he works as a legal consultant for the victims of sexual abuse. www.cbc.ca/thecurrent/2010/04/april-21-2010.html

Sex, Priests, and Secret Codes The Catholic Church's 2,000-Year Paper Trail of Sexual Abuse by Thomas P. Doyle, A.W.R. Sipe, Patrick J. Wall Volt Press, Copyright 2006 388 pages, hardcover Review by Jim Walker
'Endemic' rape and abuse of Irish children in Catholic care, inquiry finds Wednesday 20 May 2009 16.40 BST
Beatings and humiliation by nuns and priests were common at institutions that held up to 30,000 children, Ryan report states
Rape and sexual molestation were "endemic" in Irish Catholic church-run industrial schools and orphanages, a report revealed today.
The nine-year investigation found that Catholic priests and nuns for decades terrorised thousands of boys and girls in the Irish Republic, while government inspectors failed to stop the chronic beatings, rape and humiliation.
The high court judge Sean Ryan today unveiled the 2,600-page final report www.childabusecommission.ie/ of Ireland's commission into child abuse, which drew on testimony from thousands of former inmates and officials from more than 250 church-run institutions. Police were called to the news conference amid angry scenes as victims were prevented from attending.
They just move the fukkers around, aiding and abetting, so clearly more people than Lahey should be charged. Straight to the top! Arrest the Pope. There are a lot of cases of cross-border exports of 'problematic' priests to new, fresh and unsuspecting parishes between Canada and the USA. Because this article is available as a cache only, I copied it entirely.

A court document has now revealed that when Raymond Lahey, 69, arrived at Ottawa airport after a flight from England on Sept. 15, a customs agent flagged him for secondary inspection after examining his passport and noticing the bishop had "extensive travel to source countries for child pornography".
The document -- an information to obtain a search warrant -- said Bishop Lahey had visited Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Spain and Germany since 2005.
The officer also noticed that Bishop Lahey was "evasive" with his answers, avoided "eye contact" and changed his "vocal tone" during specific questions, according to the document.
"When (the agent) asked if he had a laptop computer, Bishop Lahey hesitated and replied 'yes,'"
During the secondary inspection, another agent with Canada Border Services Agency found three images of boys in various sexual acts on his laptop.
lahey2The agent determined it was child pornography and arrested him for smuggling the material into Canada, according to the document, which was used by Ottawa police to seize Bishop Lahey's laptop and several electronic devices, which were in the possession of customs authorities.
Bishop Lahey was charged on Sept. 25 with possessing and importing child pornography. The next day he resigned his position as bishop of the Diocese of Antigonish - though his only explanation for leaving was he needed time for "personal renewal."
After Bishop Lahey was detained, he was interrogated by detectives from customs and the Ottawa police, the document said. Bishop Lahey told the officers the laptop belonged to him and that "he was attracted to males aged 20 to 21," said the document.
A forensic examination of Lahey's hard drive revealed at least five photos depicting mostly nude boys between the ages of eight and 12 in various poses and engaged in sexual acts. One of the boys had dark complexion, the other was blond.
Before he resigned, Bishop Lahey had overseen a historic, $15-million, out-of-court settlement with people who were sexually abused as children by a former priest at the diocese.
Lahey was given refuge this week by the Archdiocese of Ottawa at one its residences for priests. Bishop Lahey had nowhere to go, said Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast in a statement.
"In Christian charity, and believing it is the action that our Lord would want us to take, I have accepted that he stay," said Archbishop Prendergast.
At a short court appearance October 9, 2009, a judge agreed to allow Lahey to live at the Roman Catholic Archdiocese in Ottawa until his trial begins.
Lahey was supposed to be staying in New Brunswick, but he requested the change after residents in that province complained about his presence.
The 69-year-old handed over his passport to police and will have to report to authorities on a biweekly basis.
The next hearing in the court case is scheduled for Nov. 4.
Ottawa police Det. Dan Melchiorre said the bishop's bail conditions were strict. "The conditions are very stringent...they are very strict conditions," he told reporters. "A lot of it has to do with the Internet, computers, that sort of stuff." He said that other conditions included restrictions on the bishop's presence "around children under the age of 18."
The RCMP in Nova Scotia have searched two former residences and the office of ex-Bishop Raymond Lahey. Police seized two computers after three separate search warrants -- one in Sydney and two in Antigonish -- were executed. Two computers and some external media were seized from the Antigonish search, which took place Tuesday afternoon, said RCMP spokeswoman Sgt. Bridgit Leger.
"In investigations of this nature, often times the images are not reserved to one computer," said Sgt. Leger. "History has told us, based on previous investigations, that there may be a number of computers or outlets utilized... To be prudent, we continued with our investigation here in this province."
However, if additional charges are to be laid, they will be separate from the Ottawa charges, she said.
Ottawa police discovered hundreds of pictures and videos on Lahey's laptop computer, with many showing young males involved in sexual acts. The claims are contained in requests filed by Nova Scotia RCMP last week and released Friday to search Lahey's residences and office in Sydney and Antigonish. The search warrants say Ottawa police found 964 files in a folder called "downloads" along with 33 videos when they seized Lahey's computer at the Ottawa airport on Sept. 15 as he returned from the United Kingdom. Many showed what police believe to be teenage boys engaged in masturbation and other sex acts, the documents allege. The search warrants also state that Lahey said he chatted online and that the conversations were sexual in nature, but he believed the people involved were adults.
The documents allege Lahey, who has been charged with importing and possessing child pornography, also told Ottawa police he would never abuse a child or take advantage of a minor. The search warrants contain allegations not proven in court.
I have been following the Lahey thing since the beginning and there are some interesting things happening - don't take my word, check the following out for yourself. In like manner to the death of Pope John Paul where the Vatican in a few hours cleaned his entire apartment and got rid of any sign that he ever existed the church has done the same with Bishop Raymond Lahey. Check the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishop's website. There is no record that Lahey ever existed - either on current or emeritus lists [There are articles in their archives]. Check the home page for the Archdiocese of Antigonish and you will see that all references to Lahey have been removed including changing Bishop Dunn's bio to remove Lahey who was the bishop who consecrated Dunn. (Note the different font). You can find an article in the Newfoundland Advertizer complete with picture of Lahey and Dunn together at the ceremony - October, 2008. Further you can go the Emmaus Centre newsletter for December 09 and at the end of the letter there is a notice from the CCCB to cut out opening letter and all references to Lahey in grades 7, 8, 9 catechisms. There is a complete denial of Lahey's existance even though he has yet to have his day in court and be convicted of anything. Try and find a copy of Lahey's resignation letter - it has been wiped - the church is good. Gotta love the way Catholics do things.
Update February 19, 2010
Roman Catholic Bishop Raymond Lahey is to stand trial on child-pornography charges in the spring of next year. David Elhadad, an assistant Crown attorney, said Lahey's trial has been set for April 26, 2011, and is expected to last two weeks.
The 69-year-old bishop has been staying with other priests in Ottawa since he was granted bail Oct. 1, 2009.
Update April 9, 2010
In a statement of claim filed in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador, Todd Boland alleged Lahey fondled him over his clothes, and that the abuse happened on numerous occasions over several years. The alleged abuse happened in the mid 1980s when Boland was a resident at the infamous Mount Cashel orphanage.
Lahey, the vicar general of St. John's at the time, allegedly took Boland on car rides around the city, and allowed the 10-year-old boy to sit on his lap and steer the car.
"The boy was sitting facing forward, the priest was sitting facing forward underneath him, and there was sexual arousal present (by Lahey), according to the complainant," Stack said. "The sexual abuse itself, it would be at the lower end of the scale, except that it was the vicar general who was doing it to this young, impressionable boy."
Before moving to Nova Scotia Lahey lived in Newfoundland, and served as the bishop of St. George's in western Newfoundland.
Update April 23, 2010
The RCMP say no charges will be laid in Nova Scotia against Bishop Raymond Lahey after they completed an "in-depth and thorough analysis" of computers and storage devices that were seized from his former residences.
This means that the only charges will be the original ones for possessing and importing child pornography on his laptop.
Last October, RCMP said they had seized one computer in the search of an apartment in Sydney. Another two computers were seized in Antigonish during a search of Lahey's home and his office in the town.
Sister Vicenza found the Holy Father dead at approximately 4:45 a.m. on September 29, 1978 and was forced to keep silent by the Secretariat of State, Cardinal Villot, who imposed a vow of silence upon her to cover-up the whole affair. The secretaries were likewise forbidden to advise anyone of the events without Cardinal Villot's authorization. A trustworthy person conveyed to Fr. Saez personally that Sister Vicenza had said, "But the world must know the truth." Sister Vicenza gave two conflicting reports concerning the state that she first found Pope John Paul I. According to her breathless words to a group of French priests that same morning, it was "in his bathroom" that she had "found him dead." Yet another report (no doubt arranged by Cardinal Villot), says that Sister Vicenza entered the room and found the Pope sitting up in bed, "with an expression of agony" before he died. This discrepancy is very important: if it was determined that Sister Vicenza found the Holy Father dead in the bathroom, still in his papal robes, this would indicate that Pope John Paul I died shortly after his "toast" with Cardinal Villot the night of September 28, 1978.
Cardinal Villot in the hours following Pope John Paul I's murder
David Yallop reconstructs the actions of Cardinal Villot and paints a very suspicious portrait. It is reported that at 5:00 a.m. Cardinal Villot confirmed the Holy Father's death. The Pope's glasses, slippers, and will disappeared, "none of these items has ever been seen again." Speculation is that there may have been vomit on the slippers, which if examined would identify poison as the cause of death. Cardinal Villot (or an aide) telephoned the embalmers and a Vatican car was sent to fetch them. Incredibly, the car was at their door at 5:00 a.m.! What ensued in the following hour is still a mystery. www.tldm.org/news3/johnpauli.htm

Belgian court bins church paedophile raids evidence Thursday September 9, 2010
Belgian judges ruled invalid on Thursday truckloads of evidence seized by police in summer raids probing paedophile scandals within the country's Roman Catholic Church.
An appeals court deemed the raids, on the church headquarters in Brussels and at the home of its former top cardinal, disproportionate, and ordered that the material -- on hundreds of individual investigations conducted by an internal church commission -- be returned with prosecutors unable to use it. rawstory.com/news/afp/Belgian_court_bins_church_paedophil_09092010.html

Pope Benedict lashes out at ‘atheist extremism’ Thursday, September 16, 2010 5:58pm
In a speech before the Queen and other dignitaries at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, he noted that great damages in the last century have been caused by “the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life.” He concluded with the argument that the Nazi desire to eradicate God had led to the Holocaust.
Religious order bought silence of sex-abuse victims. The Gazette - December 5, 2008 Par Sue Montgomery
St. Joseph's Oratory Thursday, December 4, 2008. Wilson Kennedy, 48, a former Brother of Holy Cross (Frères St. Croix), left the order recently after becoming disillusioned about sexual abuse and misuse of funds by fellow brothers. One student at the prestigious private school, College Notre Dame, was paid $250,000 to keep details of his abuse quiet. Les Frères St. Croix own the school, as well as St. Joseph's Oratory.
"It is essential to our mission that we strive to abide so attentively together that people will observe: 'See how they love one another.' We will then be a sign in an alienated world: men who have, for the love of their Lord, become closest neighbours, trustworthy friends, brothers."
René Cornellier Sr., now 75, thought the thousands of dollars he spent on tuition every year from 1972 to 1976 for his son's education at Montreal's prestigious Collège Notre Dame would be well worth it - until he recently was shown a letter his youngest son René wrote before dying of AIDS in 1994, detailing the sexual abuse he had suffered at the hands of four religious brothers beginning when he was just 12 years old.
8 Priests Arrested for Something Other Than Touching Kids
It's unfair and downright inaccurate to say that all Priests do is touch kids.. they also do other terrible, weird and horribly unlawful things. So, from masturbating in front of police to stalking late night show host Conan O'Brien, here are the top 8 weirdest, most shocking and downright WTF actions of priests in recent times.
1. Priest Fakes Illness, Steals $1.3 Million
For the honorable Rev. Kevin Gray of Waterbury, Conn., priesthood wasn't exactly the most fulfilling of positions. So instead of parting ways with his parish and seek better pastures, he steals 1.3 million dollars over a period of seven years from the congregation.
And what did he spend it on? Male escorts in New York City, baby!
2. Caught Groping in the Woods
Amazingly, the local church still has a site up where you can get intimate (not that way) with Boutin's biography
3. Likes to Jog Naked
4. Masturbating In Front of Undercover Cops
5. Stalking Conan O'Brien. Yes, Really.
6. Thou Shalt Shoplift From Large Chain Stores
7. Priest Shows Up Blackout Drunk For Eulogy, Starts A Fight
Confidential letter reveals Ratzinger ordered bishops to keep allegations secret
Pope Benedict XVI faced claims last night he had 'obstructed justice' after it emerged he issued an order ensuring the church's investigations into child sex abuse claims be carried out in secret.
The order was made in a confidential letter, obtained by The Observer, which was sent to every Catholic bishop in May 2001...
'Cases of this kind are subject to the pontifical secret,' Ratzinger's letter concludes. Breaching the pontifical secret at any time while the 10-year jurisdiction order is operating carries penalties, including the threat of excommunication.
Pope has immunity in abuse trials: Vatican VATICAN CITY | Thu Apr 1, 2010 2:11pm EDT
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Benedict, accused by victims' lawyers of being ultimately responsible for an alleged cover-up of sexual abuse of children by priests, cannot be called to testify at any trial because he has immunity as a head of state, a top Vatican legal official said on Thursday.
