Where Do Church Donations Go? The Catholic Church Has Used Almost $4 Billion Settling Child Molestation Lawsuits







Next Story

Pedophilia has become a huge topic of discussion over recent weeks as not only have sexual abuse outings been taking place in Hollywood, but the exposure of pedophilia in Hollywood and amongst the elite is becoming more common.

The reality of child molestation by the Roman Catholic Church has surfaced time and time again, and yet, somehow, it continues to happen. If you watched the movie Spotlight, perhaps you have an idea of just how things are going down. But let’s break it down to date.

While you can’t put a price on the innocence of a child, you can put a price on just how much the Roman Catholic Church has paid out in lawsuits over the never-ending epidemic of child molestation wreaking havoc in its ranks.

We hope the facts below help us to realize that in some ways our financial support of the catholic church is helping to cover up and defend pedophilia and child sexual abuse. Not to mention the government is providing tax breaks to what may be the biggest pedophile ring on the planet.

Also consider that the church has known about this for years and has done little to nothing to deal with it, instead they cover it up.

According to Jack and Diane Ruhl of the National Catholic Reporter, who decided to research this particular topic, since 1950, the Vatican has spent $3,994,797,060.10. That’s nearly $4 billion to keep the issue hush hush. That number may even be a bit conservative considering the amount of  “under the table” dealings have taken place which were uncovered in Spotlight investigations. Most cases were never reported nor were they taken to court, leaving their reality in the dark.

The figure is based on a three-month investigation of data, which includes a review of over 7,800 articles from LexisNexis Academic and NCR databases and information from BishopAccountability.org. Reports from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops were also used. 

If the amount of money dished out was divided evenly amongst the U.S.’s 197 dioceses, each one would get almost $20 million.  An incredible amount of cash from hard working people who chose to support the good faith and intentions of the Church — people who are parents to little boys being sexually abused — is being used to cover up unfathomable crimes executed by priests.

In the early nineties, a monk who worked at the Vatican opened up to The New Yorker, admitting: “You wouldn’t believe the amounts of money the church is spending to settle these priestly sexual-abuse cases.” By 1992, U.S. Catholic dioceses had given 400 million dollars to settle hundreds of molestation cases. That was a shocking chunk of change then, and that figure has only risen exponentially since. The men running the Vatican are well aware of the problem, and yet they refuse to provide justice.

When Pope Francis addressed hundreds of bishops on the issue, he said:

I realize how much the pain of recent years has weighed upon you, and I have supported your generous commitment to bring healing to victims — in the knowledge that in healing we too are healed — and to work to ensure that such crimes will never be repeated.

His words of “generous commitment” only further show just how tightly knit the Church truly is — worried more about reputation than morality.

“The people he was talking to are the people who moved the pedophiles around to prey on kids,” said John Salveson, a 59-year-old Philadelphia businessman who was abused as a child by a priest. “If you gave me 100 years to pick a word to describe the U.S. bishops’ reaction to this crisis, ‘generous’ would never make the list.”

Terry McKiernan, who runs BishopAccountability.org, noted that Francis overlooked the fact that many dioceses around the country haven’t disclosed the names of abusers, and furthermore, continue to lobby against reforming statute of limitations laws that shield priests from prosecution for crimes from the past.

David Clohessy, executive director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, was once optimistic that Francis would push for change in how the Church handled the scandal, but has since lost hope. “There’s nothing he could say that would be helpful, because Catholic bishops have said it all before — ‘I’m sorry, we didn’t know, we’ll do better.’ We’ve heard that for decades,” he said. “This is a pope who has refused to take steps to expose one predator or punish one enabler. . . . He could simply defrock, demote, discipline, or even clearly denounce just one complicit bishop. He refuses, not one.”

Spanning many hundreds of years, children have suffered at the hands of child predators who remain safe in the authority and integrity of an honorable faith, yet organizations, investigators, reporters, etc. continue to raise awareness, while the Catholic Church continues their fight to block bills that would extend the statute of limitations for reporting sex abuse.

Final Thoughts

There is more coming to light about the true nature of workings of many of the things we follow and believe in. Truth is coming to the surface more now than it ever has and it’s all happening for us to question the true nature of the systems and structures around us as well as the veil that has been pulled over our eyes about them.

Another key reflection point, how does covering up child sexual abuse serve to make humanity better or more peaceful? Especially from a religious institution.

TNT’s ‘Major Crimes’ Majorly Smears Priests and Catholic Church

When a show begins with a main character looking at Jesus on a crucifix in a Catholic Church while snidely saying to Him, “Thanks for nothing,” and then remarks, “We found Lucas Garza’s body at a Catholic church. You know who hangs out at Catholic churches? Priests,” you know right away that there is a clear anti-Catholic bias and that things will all be downhill from there.

TNT’s Major Crimes spent most of their Tuesday, November 7 episode, “Sanctuary City: Part 2” bashing priests and the Catholic Church with similarly offensive remarks, and made a priest a prime suspect in the disappearance of three teenage boys, referred to as the “St. Joseph’s Three,” who went missing while on a field trip with their Catholic church and school.

Father Jonas is a teacher at St. Joseph’s and a mentor to the three boys, one of whom has already turned up dead at the church in a flower bed. One detective notes, “Father Jonas just can’t stop telling us enough how close he was to these boys.” Father Jonas further tells the detectives that he had an “intense” relationship with Ryan, and that doesn’t sit well with them.

Ryan came from an abusive home and was neglected, which leads main character Sharon (Mary McDonnell) to suggest during Father Jonas’s interrogation, “Neglected kids make better targets for exploitation.” Another detective, Camila Paige (Jessica Meraz), asks Father Jonas, “If you knew that Ryan was getting knocked around, why didn’t you report it?” “Apart from the Church’s little habit of covering up abuse,” District Attorney Andrea Hobbs (Kathe Mazur), watching the interrogation from another room, adds in another dig.

When Father Jonas storms out of the room after the interrogation, one detective states, “At least we have a pretty good idea he’s hiding something.” To which another one remarks, “Well, he’s a priest. Of course he’s hiding something.”

Other characters, such as Ryan’s estranged father, join in insinuating an improper relationship existed between Ryan and Father Jonas, and he’s referred to as “that freaky priest,” and “that asshole priest.”

Finally, detectives get a tip from an intern working at the Office of the Archdiocese that makes it appear that Father Jonas may indeed be guilty:

Nolan: Your lovely intern gave up what might be damning information on Father Jonas.

Raydor: What sort of damning information?

Nolan: He’s been transferred to six different dioceses over the past five years. Monterey, Tucson, Denver, Reno, Phoenix, and L.A.

Tao: And two of these transfers happened in the middle of the school year.

Flynn: Sounds like another one of the Church’s tried-and-true tactics to cover up sexual abuse.

Provenza: Well, our priest has told us over and over how close he is to these boys. Intensely close.

Raydor: And Father Jonas gave Ryan driving lessons.

Sykes: Yeah, well, front seat or back?

Provenza: Could’ve been the trunk.

After obtaining a search warrant for Father Jonas’s room, they discover that he’s fled the country.

Illegal immigration is also a focus of this five-part series, as one of the missing boys’ parents is in the country illegally. This leads to a debate over sanctuary cities between the F.B.I. and the L.A.P.D. with one officer arguing, “Do you want them to stop stepping forward as witnesses, to quit reporting rapes, missing children, and murders out of fear of being deported?”

Of course, such a show wouldn’t be complete without having an angry white male who hates illegal immigrants and wants them dead living next door to one of the missing boys:

Fey: Turns out Marvin Garret does more than make calls to ICE about his neighbors. We found an IP address linked to a computer he uses at home.

FBI Agent 2: Not sure who owns the website, but it’s called unhyphenatednation.com, and Marvin is its administrator.

Vega: “Unhyphenated Nation” is dedicated to the end of multiculturalism and the removal of all extensions to the word “American.” For example, the hyphens between African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Asian-Americans…

Tao: Hmm. What about Irish-Americans and Italian-Americans?

Vega: That doesn’t seem to come up.

Fey: Unhyphenated’s main issue appears to be crimes by illegal aliens.

Tao: The site is operated by Marvin?

Vega: Under the pseudonym “Buddy E. Lee,” so he didn’t pay for it, and it’s not listed under his real name, which is why it slipped by you guys. You see? The Patriot Act comes in handy now and then.

Flynn: A disgusting website isn’t enough to arrest this Marvin dirt bag.

To top off this caricature, they of course make Garret a federally licensed gun dealer as well.

As an aside, the show completely mishandled a type 1 diabetes storyline, from mislabeling the disease as “Type A diabetes” several times by several different characters, to showing grossly unrealistic diabetic supplies (I know because my daughter is a type 1 diabetic), proving that the writers don’t know what they’re talking about and are lazy with their research and information. So, can they really be trusted to handle these other serious issues properly?

Catholic Priest Conducts Spiritual Cleansing Of Las Vegas Shooter's Hotel Room

A Chicago Catholic priest has performed a spiritual cleansing of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino room used by gunman Stephen Paddock during a mass shooting in Las Vegas earlier this month. 

The Rev. Clete Kiley told Newsweek that he confronted what he called the “mystery of evil” while performing a Roman Catholic rite on October 18 inside a room on the hotel’s 32nd floor. It was from this room that Paddock unleashed a barrage of bullets onto a country music festival on Oct. 1, killing 58 people and wounding hundreds more.

Morning light reflects off the Mandalay Bay hotel and the broken windows where shooter Stephen Paddock conducted his shooting spree from the 32nd floor in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S., October 3, 2017. Morning light reflects off the Mandalay Bay hotel and the broken windows where shooter Stephen Paddock conducted his shooting spree from the 32nd floor in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S., October 3, 2017. 

Kiley, who is affiliated with the hospitality workers’ union UNITE HERE, was in Las Vegas to comfort traumatized staff at the Mandalay Bay ― some of whom he said were nervous about returning to the 32nd floor. After the FBI released the floor back to the hotel, he told the Chicago Sun Times that he brought a glass of water and a palm branch with him to perform a cleanse.

When the temporary door that had sealed the crime scene was opened, Kiley said he felt as if he was “pushed back.”

 “In my mind, I found myself saying to myself: ‘Oh no, you have to go.’ I instinctively began to pray in silence: ‘St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Protect us against the wickedness and snares of the devil,’” he told the Sun Times.

Kiley then walked through a hallway littered with plaster and broken light fixtures, with bullet holes still visible in the walls. As he entered Paddock’s former room, he said he felt a “profound silence.”

“I kept saying this is just evil, raw evil,” he told the Sun Times. 

The priest then blessed the water and used the Catholic prayer for the blessing of a house to pray over every corner of the suite. He also asked the Holy Spirit to descend into the room with ” light, joy, peace, hope and life.”

Kiley said that leaders of other faith traditions may also be invited to pray in the space. HuffPost reached out to MGM Resorts International and UNITE HERE to confirm, but has not heard back.

“I really saw the whole thing as part of a healing process. A small part of a healing process,” Kiley told Newsweek.

Catholic institutions announce largest ever faith-based fossil fuel divestment

From the Church of England to the Islamic Society of North America, we’ve seen many religious groups grappling with the moral issues around investments in fossil fuels.

While each investment has a somewhat of a direct economic impact, the significance is usually more about sending a moral signal that we need to change our ways. That said, when the Guardian reports that 40 Catholic institutions have simultaneously announced that they are making significant divestments from fossil fuels, I suspect it hits the oil, gas and coal companies in the pocket book too.

Institutions involved include the Archdiocese of Cape Town, the Episcopal Conference of Belgium and the diocese of Assisi-Nocera Umbra-Gualdo Tadino, as well as the German Church bank and Catholic relief organization Caritas, which alone is worth €4.5bn.

What will be interesting to watch for is when “moral” divestments like these start getting lost amid simple, financially-motivated shifts in capital. After all, with coal on the ropes and everyone from GM to Nissan getting into electrification, it can’t be long before Big Oil’s profit projections start to head south.

Add the prospect of electric passenger flights, startlingly low offshore wind costs and viable energy storage, and I find it hard to see why anyone would be placing long term bets on fossil fuels.

But maybe laggard investors are just throwing a Hail Mary…

Conservative Catholic Group Accuses Pope Francis Of Promoting Heresy On Divorce

A group of conservative Roman Catholics has accused Pope Francis of spreading “heresy” by signaling his openness to letting some divorced and remarried Catholics receive Holy Communion.

In a 25-page letter published online Saturday, nearly 70 Catholic theologians and clergy assert that the pontiff has propagated “heretical propositions” on “marriage, the moral law, and the reception of the sacraments.”

The letter focused primarily on Francis’s 260-page treatise “Amoris Laetitia” (“The Joy of Love”), published last year. In the document, the pontiff called the church to be less strict and more compassionate toward “imperfect” Catholics, including those who have divorced and remarried, saying that “no one can be condemned forever.”

“The pope has advocated the beliefs that obedience to God’s moral law can be impossible or undesirable, and that Catholics should sometimes accept adultery as compatible with being a follower of Christ,” the group said in a release, equating remarriage after divorce to having an affair.

The letter was delivered to the pope at his Santa Marta residence on Aug. 11, according to the release. Francis has not issued a response.

“Pope Francis may be determined not to answer this, but it’s not to say that bishops and cardinals aren’t able to absorb it,” Joseph Shaw, a professor of philosophy at Oxford University and one of the letter’s organizers, told CNN. “We have to press this problem on to people who can ultimately address them.”

Francis has faced pushback before over his teachings on divorce. In February, German Cardinal Gerhard Mueller, who stepped down from heading the Vatican’s doctrine office in July, said he opposed any potential changes to the church’s ban on divorced and remarried Catholics taking Communion.

“No power in heaven or on earth, neither an angel, nor the pope, nor a council, nor a law of the bishops, has the faculty to change it,” he told Il Timone, an Italian Catholic publication, according to the Los Angeles Times.

But it’s unlikely the letter ― signed by some members of a traditionalist group that already broke from the Catholic Church under Pope John Paul II ― will register a significant shift. 

“First of all, out of the 200 cardinals and over 5,000 bishops in the church, not one has signed on,” Father James Martin, a Jesuit priest and consultor of the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communication, said in an email to HuffPost.

“What weight should be give this letter? Not much, I would say.”

The priest noted that the letter also flies in the face of the “traditional authority of the pope.”

“There are many people in the church who have set themselves against Pope Francis, but the crashing irony here is that the ‘traditionalists’ that signed this letter are going against the traditional authority of the pope,” Martin said. “They’re also some of the same people who, under John Paul II and Benedict XVI, said that any disagreement with the pope was tantamount to dissent. So that letter is pretty rich in irony.”

London Catholic Church Hosts Illuminati SATANIST Fashion Parade









 






Pentagrams, upside-down crosses, all seeing eyes, Illuminati and freemasonry symbols, Jewish 666 stars known as Star of David, prostitutes, transgenders and even partial nudity, such as a woman parading INSIDE the church with one breast out, uncovered, you name it! This was a full Satanist ritual!

How come there is always an abundance of fools ready to be used by these demons, is beyond any philosophy. Why couldn’t these models just refuse partaking in this so that these satanists have no one who to use?

Turkish designer Dilara Findikoglu’s Spring/Summer 2018 Collection, which was showcased at the altar of a Catholic church, had an element of Victorian Goth combined with satanic imagery.

“Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.” Jude 1:13 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: As shocking as these photos are, we should not be surprised to find a demonic “fashion” show taking place in one of England’s most famous Catholic churches. All of the Devil’s “heavy hitters” were on display at this show as we see Illuminati, Masonic and occult imagery and symbolism all over the place. The priests at St. Andrew’s church seem quite pleased with the show, and of course, the revenue it generated. Exactly what you might expect from an organization the Bible refers to as the “whore of babylon” in Revelation 17.

Rapper Brooke Candy and drag artist Violet Chachki were within her troupe of heavily made-up models that strutted to the soundtrack of 80s dark wave and traditional belly-dancing music.

The Turkish creative made a name for herself two years ago at Central Saint Martins when she held a guerrilla presentation for the students whose work didn’t make it into the official press show.

Growing up with Muslim parents in Istanbul she admitted wanting to explore constantly. She told Vogue magazine that became fascinated with parapsychology, the occult and ‘magic stuff’ – which clearly shows in her unusual designs.

Dilara treated fashionistas to an array of face tattoos, tartan and lace at St Andrew Church in London. Off the catwalk, her quirky designs can be found in Selfridges in London and have been worn by the likes of Rihanna and FKA Twiggs.

For her show on Monday night, Dilara transformed St Andrews Church, in London, into a graphically satanic runway. Fashion insiders lined the front row as models strutted their stuff down a checker board catwalk. The set was dominated by a towering backdrop packed with symbolism from tarot card imagery.

Dilara’s occult influences were evident in the ensembles she unveiled. One model looked eerily pale as she appeared in a shredded cream outfit apparently inspired by a corpse bride.

Another wearing a daring black and white ensemble had her mouth covered in bone-like make-up. Several others had their faces painted in large symbols that appeared to be inspired by witchcraft.

Here’s the debauchery that went on in the Saint Andrews Catholic Church:

Look at Mr. Demon here! Who is this? Lucifer himself?

Like out of a horror movie, this woman looks like a evil witch with a see-through transparent top where you can actually see a breast of hers. There’s also ACAB tattooed on her leg at the ankle which is an acronym for “All Cops Are Bastards”.

Notice the upside-down cross under her left eye. All of this inside of a Church… the house of God!

Yet another evil witch, looks like shes possessed!

Same woman as above, notice the illuminati eye on her legging.

What about the background? Did you notice that below the Sun, there is a satanist reversed Pentagram with the letter G inside of it which is the letter of Freemasonry, under that there is a 666 Jewish star with the Illuminati eye inside, etc. This was all full of symbolism. It was like a celebration of evil. Also notice the red flags with the illuminati eyes and at the top having some infinity snakes. Unbelievable.

Wearing a Satanist pentagram painted on her face. WOW so classy and progressive!

And half naked… inside of a Church… no decency left…. what is this the evil harlot riding the 7 headed beast?

Notice the Egyptian illuminati all seeing eye painted on her face

If this horned freak doesn’t give you the chills then what does?

Yet another horned freak

This creature looks like a transgender sick of AIDS or something…

Of course there had to be some DIEversity included

All seeing eyes, skull and bones, nothing out of the ordinary!

More freemasonry and illuminati symbols…

Another evil witch. Looks like a man disguised as a woman… known as a tranny!

A mutant couple… they look as if they suffer from some kind of syndrome

This…. inside of a Church! Only 200 years ago she would have been burned alive for such a blasphemy! Now humanity is back to the times of Babylon.

Yet another horned creature

More freemasonry symbols

And yet another transgender dressed as a woman. He also seems to be suffering from some kind of disease, notice the red stains on his/her face…

May God forgive us of our sins because we are dirty animals! All of us! Simply for not taking a strong stand against this debauchery. Where are the voices opposing this? Where is the outrage?

Illuminati Themed Fashion Show Held At London Catholic Church

St. Andrews Church used as location for black mass fashion show

A troupe of models pranced the runway inside of a Catholic church while rocking Turkish fashion designer Dilara Findikoglu’s Illuminati-inspired line for “Fashion Week.”

======================

 

The controversial pieces make up Dilara’s “Spring/Summer 2018 collection,” and are likely to attract the attention of deep-pocketed fashion goers from around the globe, such as Rihanna who’s previously been spotted in the designer’s exotic rags.

Dilara’s newest designs range from a Nightmare Before Christmas look, to a Beetlejuice meets Lacuna Coil witchcraft-vampire feel, and were introduced by average models who were caked with pale face paint and temporary tattoos.

One of the show’s highlights was when Dilara utilized dragqueen Violet Chachki to sport a devilishly red hot outfit which showcased Chachi’s hair as proverbial horns, while Illuminati-esque imagery filled the background.

Bodies of 400 Children Discovered in Hidden Mass Grave at Catholic Orphanage

orphanageorphanage

The results of a horrifying investigation into a Catholic orphanage are being released this week. The report revealed the discovery of a mass grave containing the bodies of over 400 orphans—including babies, toddlers, and children.

The investigation, conducted by the Sunday Post and the BBC, looked into the dark secret of the Catholic run Smyllum Park orphanage. While the orphanage—which operated for a century and a half—put headstones on the graves of nuns and staff members, no stone or memorial has ever recorded the deaths of these 402 orphans found buried in a single mass grave.

According to the Sunday Post, the revelation that up to 400 youngsters – and some adults – are buried there today provoked calls for Scotland’s ongoing Child Abuse Inquiry to investigate.

As the BBC reports, the Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul, which ran the home, refused to comment on the findings.

Former First Minister, Jack McConnell, who, on behalf of the Scottish Government, apologized to victims of care home abuse in 2004, said it was shameful they were still waiting for truth and justice, reports the Post. He said, “It is heartbreaking to discover so many children may have been buried in these unmarked graves. After so many years of silence, we must now know the truth of what happened here.”

According to the BBC, “Analysis of the records show that a third of those who died were aged 5 or younger. Twenty-four of those who died were older than 15, and most of the deaths occurred between 1870 and 1930.”

The Post noted that what this means is that “the death rate among 1- to 14-year-olds was at least 30 deaths per 1,000.”

“Analysis of figures from the National Records of Scotland, reveal the highest mortality rate among children aged between 1 and 14 was in 1901 when 10.4 deaths per 1,000 were recorded,” it added.

This means the mortality rate for children in the Catholic run orphanage was 300 percent higher than the highest mortality rate of Scottish children ever recorded.

“Some children were sent to the home from other places across central Scotland, so spot checks were also made with a number of other areas. Burial records were discovered in Glasgow for two of the dead. No other area we approached could find any burial record for the names we asked them to check,” according to the BBC.

“As the Daughters of Charity have previously indicated that children were buried in an unmarked plot at the cemetery, and that their records are incomplete, all the bodies are believed to be buried in the graveyard.”

The inquiry into the mass grave began in 2003 when two former residents of the orphanage Frank Docherty and Jim Kane set out in their efforts to expose the rampant physical abuse which they claimed happened regularly to many of the children.

Docherty and Kane were told by Daughter of Charity of St Vincent de Paul that their records suggested that only 158 children had been buried on the property. However, Docherty and Kane, who both died earlier this year, suspected those numbers to be much higher. The BBC/Post investigation proves they were right.

“Oh my God, I’ve got goose pimples. It’s shocking,” said Frank Docherty’s widow, Janet, when the Post told her the results of their investigation.

“He had been trying for years to find a figure and he didn’t get anywhere. That’s unbelievable.

“Frank always feared there were more kids buried there and this is proof of that,” she said. “He would have been content that it has come out now at last.”

According to the BBC’s report,

Analysis of the records show that a third of those who died were aged five or under. Very few of those who died, 24 in total, were aged over 15, and most of the deaths occurred between 1870 and 1930.

One of those believed to be buried there is Francis McColl. He died in 1961, aged 13; his death certificate indicates he died from a brain hemorrhage.

His brother Eddie spent decades wondering what had happened to Francis. At one point, he heard he’d been struck on the head by a golf club, which now chimes with the evidence of the death certificate.

However, according to the report, Eddie could find no records of where his brother was buried.

“It’s ridiculous,” he says. “I’m not happy about that. Whoever is behind this, I hope they can live with themselves.”

Many allegations of abuse at the care home were also uncovered by File on 4 and the Sunday Post, including beatings, punches, public humiliations and psychological abuse, according to the report.

The Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul have declined to speak publicly on any of these recent revelations.

However, they released a statement saying, “We are Core Participants in the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry and are co-operating fully with that inquiry.

“We remain of the view that this inquiry is the most appropriate forum for such investigations.

“Given the ongoing work of the inquiry we do not wish to provide any interviews.

“We wish to again make clear that, as Daughters of Charity, our values are totally against any form of abuse and thus, we offer our most sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone who suffered any form of abuse whilst in our care.”

Below is a clip from the BBC’s 38-minute show on the horrifying discovery.
