They are the kind of thing that institutional sexual abusers and their administrative protectors use to intimidate other victims out of coming forward. “Nobody will believe you,” is one of the sex abuser’s preferred lines. Ask The Sundance Wives.

The Catholic Church, the world’s single largest anti-gay hate group has announced that it will elevate Archbishop Timothy Dolan to the office of Cardinal within the worldwide corporation. Dolan owes his rise within the hate group to anti-gay bigotry.
 
Dolan became Archbishop of Milwaukee after Archbishop Weakland was discovered having an unspecified encounter with a younger male and paid out $450,000 to avoid a significant lawsuit. Dolan’s reception in Milwaukee got a lift from the scandal, the notion being, we can celebrate this new one, and cover up whatever the last one did (Weakland apparently stole that $450,000 from the Church).
 
Weakland as Archbishop, in 1984, responded to Catholic school teachers that were reporting sex abuse by local priests by saying “any libellous material found in your letter will be scrutinized carefully by our lawyers.”
 
In August, 2011 in the Bronx, Father Jaime Duenas was arrested on allegations that he had repeatedly sexually abused a 16-year-old girl working in the Church.

A victims’ advocacy group tried to urge any additional victims to come forward. The outcome of that was met with hostility by church-goers loyal to Duenas. Meanwhile, according to prosecutors, in his cell before his arraignment, the Catholic Church’s Father Duenas said, “She didn’t protest to getting a massage. She was wearing short skirts.”
 
As if it were not bad enough that Duenas tried to blame the victim, Archbishop Dolan piled on in attempting to discredit her. On the Archbishop’s Blog with a photo of Dolan smiling, and a headline of “Gratitude to the Catholic League” — Dolan published a press release from the Catholic League’s notorious political gay basher Bill Donahue.

Donahue wrote that the apparent victim had reported to work three days after as the abuse was occurring and now says that she was abused.  He repeats the pattern several times, to emphasize his point that the girl went to work but “now says” that she was abused. What is wrong with his statements? They are the kind of thing that institutional sexual abusers and their administrative protectors use to intimidate other victims out of coming forward. “Nobody will believe you,” is one of the sex abuser’s preferred lines, according to abuse experts.
 
Under the photo of Dolan’s smiling face, on Dolan’s blog, Donahue goes on to call the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP) a “phony victims’ group.”
 
Anybody with knowledge of the situation knows that minus SNAP, the Catholic Church would have done the equivalent of saying that all Church child rape victims “didn’t protest to getting a massage” and had been “wearing short skirts.” In recent weeks, Donahue has said that Church child rape victims “don’t want to move on, and that’s because they have too much invested in maintaining their victim status.”

Empathy? Or, an oversight that the Church would rather not provide, in order to prevent additional child rape crimes and cover-ups within the Church?
 
As Archbishop of Milwaukee, Timothy Dolan successfully fought proposed legislation that would have lifted the statute of limitations for the prosecution of child rape crimes. New York legislators have proposed lifting the statute of limitations on child rape. But a staffer for Senator Thomas Duane told me that if I thought Dolan fought hard against marriage equality, I should know that that is nothing compared to how hard he fights against lifting the statute of limitations for the prosecution of child rapes.

This is the world-wide organization that says homosexuality is a “sin” and that marriage equality will lead to the downfall of civilization.
 
When Pennsylvania State University football coach Joe Paterno was alleged once to have covered up sexual abuse of young people, he was immediately fired from the job he had held for decades. At least in part for successfully shielding Catholic Church resources against claims from Church sex abuse victims, Archbishop Dolan has been “elevated” to Cardinal.

And, on a lighter note, or not? In TOLEDO, Ohio, a Roman Catholic priest convicted of killing a nun inside an Ohio hospital chapel a day before Easter in 1980 won't get a new trial.

The judge ruled Monday that police reports discovered after the priest's trial didn't contain any new information that would have changed the outcome.

It has been more than five years since jurors convicted the Rev. Gerald Robinson of stabbing and strangling Sister Margaret Ann Pahl at Mercy Hospital in Toledo where both worked. The stab wounds on Pahl's chest were in the shape of an upside down cross and blood was smeared on her forehead.

Robinson was the hospital chaplain and presided at the nun's funeral. He emerged as a suspect when police found a sword-shaped letter opener in his desk drawer two weeks after the killing. But he wasn't charged until 24 years later after investigators reopened the case.

Now 73, he remains a priest but has been barred from ministry, and is serving a sentence of 15 years to life in prison.

Church historians say it's the only documented case of a Catholic priest killing a nun. Prosecutors have never clearly stated a motive in the slaying, only suggesting that the priest and nun did not get along and that he grew angry with her because she was strict and dominating.

And that's the news, folks....Stay tuned for RUSE, the short film by my director Wendy Crouse filming on Wed. Jan. 11, 2012 with the characters, Sage, Blue and Colton.

The Catholic church can be dissolved for its hatred of not just LGBT persons, but for the poor who ask the church for help, and are required by the church to show identification to "prove" who they are. The priests and the upper echelon of the Catholic church are not devout Christians because a Christian doesn't hate, judge or require identification of others.

The priests of the Catholic church from the Pope on down will have a rude awakening on that final judgement day when the Lord Jesus gives His final judgement. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love and who love you, and be with you always and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Practically everyday we hear of sexual abuse, but we never hear of anyone trying to resolve it! Thanks, Sage!
